Scouting report

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Zack Moss was held to just 28 yards on 13 carries in a lopsided loss to the Bengals last week. Moss was expected to return to the elite fantasy numbers he put up earlier this year in Jonathan Taylor’s absence when Taylor got hurt again two weeks ago, but he hasn’t been able to find his groove. He’s averaging a paltry 2.5 yards per carry over his last two starts.

This week, Moss faces a Pittsburgh defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Expect the Colts to lean on the running game and for Moss to get back on track after a couple of disappointing outings. We have him ranked as a solid RB1 option this week.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Cincinnati Bengals

Zack Moss was held to 51 yards on the ground against the Titans last week, but he had 19 carries and a pair of receptions, showing that he is definitely the workhorse back with Jonathan Taylor sidelined. Moss put up five touchdowns in seven games to kick off the season and he is averaging 4.5 yards per carry on the year. He’s shown he can be a legit RB1 when he gets a full workload.

This week, Moss faces a Cincinnati defense that ranks 22nd in aFPA to opposing running backs. With a nice matchup and a full workload expected for the tough runner, fantasy managers should consider him a must-start. We have him ranked in elite territory this week.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Tennessee Titans

Zack Moss was back to being a part of the offense in the win over the Buccaneers last week. He had eight carries and a pair of receptions for a total of 70 yards from scrimmage. Now, with Jonathan Taylor set to miss the next couple of weeks with a thumb injury, the stage is set for Moss to be in the “league-winner” conversation again. He was a RB1 option early in the season, and should step back into that territory again.

This week, Moss faces a Tennessee defense that ranks 21st in aFPA to opposing running backs. It’s a nice matchup and a likely full workload for Moss, making him a must-start in all fantasy leagues. Be sure to check the waiver wire and add him immediately.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. New England Patriots (Germany)

Zack Moss was down to just 21% of the team’s offensive snaps last week as Jonathan Taylor has continued to see his workload increase since returning from injury five games ago. Moss still had seven carries last week, but was held to just 26 yards in a victory over the Panthers.

This week, Moss faces a Patriots defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Moss should still rotate in to spell Taylor, making him a viable RB3 option, but with Taylor back to full health, we don’t expect Moss to be consistent enough to start in most formats. Hold him as a high-end handcuff, but be wary of putting him in fantasy lineups.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Carolina Panthers

Zack Moss’s snap count was down last week (39%), but he still managed 74 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and a reception. He’s a nice option as a one-two punch in the backfield for Indianapolis. Moss has double-digit touches in every game this year, even with Jonathan Taylor back in the lineup.

Moss should be good for quality RB2 numbers once again in a great matchup against the Panthers. While Carolina has some talented pass rushers and secondary players on their defense, they’ve really struggled against the run this season and rank 31st in aFPA to opposing running backs. We have have Moss ranked as a low-end RB2 option this week.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. New Orleans Saints

Zack Moss split the backfield carries with Jonathan Taylor 50/50 last week against the Browns, and he ended up with 18 carries and a reception for a total of 62 yards. The Colts seem to like their one-two punch at running back, despite how disheartening it is for fantasy managers hoping for some consistent fantasy value.

This week, Moss has a tough matchup against a New Orleans defense that ranks 11th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Moss also may be nicked up after being a bit limited in practice this week, so keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend. Assuming he starts, he’s a fringe RB2 option now that Taylor seems to be back in the swing of things. He also remains one of the best backup running backs in the league, so keep him rostered if possible.

IND RB Zack Moss - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Cleveland Browns

Zack Moss scored a touchdown and caught six balls last week against the Jaguars, but he was definitely in a two-back system with Jonathan Taylor, seeing 50% of the snaps, down from 80% the week before. Expect Taylor to usurp him even more as the season progresses, but the Colts will use both players. Moss has been very good and the Colts will need both players with Gardner Minshew set to start the remainder of the season.

This week, Moss faces an exceptional Cleveland defense that ranks fifth in aFPA to opposing running backs. Moss is expected to continue to lose more work to Jonathan Taylor, but he’s probably not going away completely, given the success he’s had this year. This could be an ugly game, featuring a lot of rush attempts on both sides of the ball, so Moss could still see double-digit touches, even if Taylor gets a full workload. We have Moss just outside RB2 territory this week and he should be considered a quality flex option in most leagues.
