2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
HC Frank Reich has made it clear that Taylor will be the lead back in Indy this season, and rightly so. He's earned it. He finished his rookie season ranked 3rd in rushing yards (1169), 8th in attempts (232) and 6th in rushing TD's (11). He also caught 36 of 39 targets for 299 yards and another score. From Week 11 on, he averaged over 22 touches per game, and all those numbers only figure to go up as Nyheim Hines and Marlon Mack don't figure to grab a large share of snaps on a consistent basis.

Frank Reich likes the checkdown game, and will look to create easy throws for Carson Wentz and get the ball out of his quarterback's hands this season. The Colts targeted their backs in the passing game nearly 150 times in 2020, which bodes well for Taylor as a legitimate dual threat and a surefire top 10 fantasy RB.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Carson Wentz expected to start despite sprained ankles
Team has contingency plans
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 26, 6:00 am

Indianapolis Colts
The #Colts plan to start QB Carson Wentz (ankles) tomorrow vs. the #Titans, sources say. No setbacks and Wentz is pushing to play, so he’s expected to give it a go. The team has contingency plans in case he gets out there and can’t play to the proper level. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Even if Wentz starts he's not a recommended fantasy option given the shakiness of his ankles. He did enough in practice on Friday to give him the benefit of the doubt, but this sounds like a situation where he could get pulled during the game. Jonathan Taylor could see a heavy workload today.
