Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Colts drafted Taylor in the second round. They traded up to get him, which is usually an indicator of increased usage as a rookie. HC Frank Reich has a reputation for using a committee of backs, but over the past two seasons Marlon Mack has averaged 17.6 and 16.3 carries, respectively. Mack is still with the team, so it’s unclear how the touches are going to shake out in the Indy backfield. Taylor is talented and could handle a three-down role if that’s the route that Reich wants to go. Complicating matters, Reich called Nyheim Hines a “role-playing starter” given his ability as a receiver. Taylor has top five upside in this offense, but it’s unlikely that he’ll see enough work as a rookie to get there.

IND RB Jonathan Taylor - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Jonathan Taylor had a touchdown last week against the Browns, but he had only 12 carries and 57 yards as the Colts’ turnovers left them trailing for much of the game. Taylor has high upside as the primary back behind a solid offensive line – albeit missing Anthony Castonzo – and his 18.5 touches per game since taking over as the starter in Week 2 give him a high floor as well.

This week, Taylor should get back on track against a struggling Bengals defense that ranks 21st in the league in aFPA to opposing running backs. Fantasy owners should start him in all leagues, as we have him ranked in our top-five running back rankings this week.
