Projections for the season ahead
As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Indianapolis Colts rookie running back Jonathan Taylor and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
After the Colts drafted Taylor, Coach Frank Reich talked about Taylor and Marlon Mack providing a “one-two punch” in the running game. That’s worrisome for Taylor’s touch count, but last year’s Colts ranked fifth most run-heavy in the league. So there’s room for Taylor to lead and Mack to maintain a significant role. The bigger question might be Taylor’s receiving. He saw light volume at Wisconsin but flashed more upside in that area last year.

There’s workload risk. But we’d rather bet on Taylor’s talent and the Colts remaining run-heavy than avoid this potential stud runner.
