Taylor now has now out-touched Hines 64-29 in last three games together, meaning Taylor is the clear RB1 for the Colts right now. The Colts get the Texans and then the Steelers over the next two fantasy playoff weeks.
IND RB Jonathan Taylor - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jonathan Taylor continued his late-season assault last week against the Steelers, rushing for 74 yards and two touchdowns in a loss. Taylor had 18 carries, and now has five straight games with at least 16 touches. After a rough start to the season, he’s rebounded to score 10 touchdowns and needs just 84 more yards to reach 1,000 rushing.
This week, he should get those 84 yards against a Jaguars defense that ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Expect the Colts to take a ground-based approach in their final bid for playoff seeding, and for Taylor to benefit from it. He’s an RB1 this week in all formats.
