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 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.
