Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 56 yards on 17 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1. He also caught six passes for 60 yards in the game.
Huddle Up: Taylor was a big factor in the offense for the Colts in the season opener and will continue to see plenty of touches moving forward. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is one of 30 running backs since 2000 to top 1,000 rushing yards as a rookie, but only five backs in that group had more rushing yards in their second season.
Huddle Up: Taylor exploded over the final six games of 2020, and while history may not be on his side when it comes to a repeat performance, he does have the benefit of running behind an excellent offensive line. Taylor is positioned to put up RB1 numbers in 2021.

Indianapolis Colts Jonathan Taylor in 2020 became the fifth rookie running back since 2000 to finish his first season with at least 1,100 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns while averaging at least five yards per carry.
Huddle Up: Taylor finished strong with five straight 19-fantasy-point plus games to end the regular season and wound up with the sixth most total PPR points at the position. He's a strong back-end RB1 to consider in drafts this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but was removed from the injury report Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: The Colts had every reason to keep Taylor off his feet and away from any kind of physical contact this week after giving him 30 carries in Week 17. If the Colts are to upset the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, it will likely be because Taylor had a big hand in it. While Nyheim Hines will mix in and handle a number of snaps on passing downs, the rookie appears primed for another 20 or so touches and is a great option in playoff leagues and/or DFS.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6. He said Wednesday that he felt fine after a career-high 30 carries in Week 17, and he said he'll be 'ready to roll' for the AFC wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Taylor just missed out on the AFC Player of the Week for Week 17 after his epic performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars, rolling up 253 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries. He is a must-have fantasy option in postseason leagues and DFS play for Saturday.Kei

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated injury report for their walk-through practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Taylor took off in the second half of the season and ran for 253 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 17 finale. He'll need to be in lineups for all fantasy formats in the AFC Wild Card Round.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 18 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he did not have a catch on just one target.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been a solid fantasy option this season, but he has really kicked it into high gear over the past three games with 44 runs, 307 yards and five touchdowns. Rookie wall? What rookie wall? Despite playing more games than he is used to in a single, he has actually gotten stronger as the year has progressed.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 83 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 15. He also caught four passes for 12 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Taylor has rushed for at least 80 yards in each of the last four games and has three touchdowns in the last two games. He should be a starting option in all leagues next week.
Posted: 12/17/2020 2:20 am GMT
Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor needs to average 80.3 rushing yards over his final three regular-season games to hit 1,000 yards for his rookie season.
Huddle Up: Taylor leads the Colts with 759 rushing yards and six touchdowns with just one fumble lost and 46 first downs on his 168 carries through 12 games. He has emerged as a tremendous RB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and he is a great long-term fantasy keeper, too.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor 'has definitely shown he's capable of being the top dog,' but offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni told reporters Tuesday, Dec. 15, that the Colts will 'continue to ride the hot hand (at running back).'
Huddle Up: Given the adventure that November was for Taylor and his fantasy owners, nothing can be taken for granted in this backfield. With that said, the rookie has been dynamic over the last three contests, rushing for at least 90 yards each time. While Nyheim Hines can be expected to continue mixing in on occasion, the Wisconsin product should now be considered a strong bet to handle at least 15 to 18 touches weekly moving forward. In Week 15, Taylor will face a Houston Texans defense that is surrendering 137.7 rushing yards per game to the running back position alone.
