Jacob Wayne
Lineups
There's a lot to love about Jonathan Taylor landing in Indianapolis. Taylor was historically great at Wisconsin, rushing for over 6,000 yards in three seasons and setting several rushing along the way. The Colts have put together one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and Taylor should have plenty of running room in the offense. The presence of Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines limits Taylor's upside, at least initially, but I wouldn't be shocked at all if we're talking about him as a top-five guy this time next year. He's not the guy to take if you're looking for weekly consistency, but he has the most upside out of anyone not being drafted in the first round.The Rams cut Todd Gurley, a former Offensive Player of the Year, this offseason, leaving behind a confusing three-man backfield. Malcolm Brown is supposedly the starter, but second-year Darrell Henderson and rookie Cam Akers are the guys with clear upside. Akers is a phenomenal talent who should win the starting job, it's just unclear how long it will take as he gets used to NFL pass protection and pass-catching. He's a great high-upside pick in the middle rounds.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
The collegiate production can't be ignored, especially when considering that every opposing defense recognized and treated Taylor as the focal point of Wisconsin's offense. He's a big back with the ability to power his way through heavy traffic.Although Akers has the raw tools to be a star, Florida State wasn't very creative with him in the passing game. That isn't likely to be a problem in an offense run by Rams head coach Sean McVay, who is likely to lean heavily on Akers in 2020.
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Taylor is a special talent behind one of the best offensive lines in football. Frank Reich has been steadfast in his approach to this backfield with Marlon Mack and Taylor splitting the workload. Marinate on this, Mack finished with 247 carries for 1,091 yards last season. Taylor is the better back behind that same line. Once the job is his, it's lights-out on the split and Taylor is in the top-five running back conversation for 2021. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jonathan Taylor has found himself in an excellent long-term situation but it's far more of a mess in 2020. While this offense had 560 RB touches in 2019, they were very spread and that's likely for this coming season as well. It's highly likely that Marlon Mack will be the initial starter with Taylor funnelling touches as the season progresses. That's not what you want from a player many are drafting inside the first four rounds. While there is a lot of end-of-season upside, the path there isn't at all clear, especially with a better passing offense likely leading to lower rushing volume and Nyheim Hines grabbing a pile of receptions. Taylor profiles as an eventual RB2 with excellent long-term upside.Despite being 7th in total yards, the Rams somehow managed to give only 1500 of them to their RBs. While that's less than ideal, there is room for growth. There are rumblings that the Rams want to do more on the ground and with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown proving underwhelming to this point, it's entirely possible that by halfway through the season, this is Cam Akers's backfield. Given the huge TD and fantasy point upside that role has previously held, a return to form for the Rams could make the young rookie a fantasy stud. Be very aware that he'll start the season slowly but he could rumble home with a head of steam if things fall his way.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's looking like a very good possibility for Taylor to see 250-plus carries in his rookie season. Some may think that's absurd, but Marlon Mack totaled 247 carries in just 14 games last year. Even if we give Mack the 100 carries that Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams combined for last year, it'd leave room for Taylor to hit the 250 mark. He's also running behind the best offensive line in football, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him rush for 1,200 yards in year one with his vision and speed in the open field. Taylor is right in the same territory as someone like Nick Chubb.The Rams were going to draft a running back - we knew that after they interviewed a ton of them in the draft process. What we didn't know was that they'd take one with their first pick in the draft. While Darrell Henderson is a threat to Akers' overall workload, they clearly know what they have in Henderson, and drafted Akers early. It seems like Henderson is going to be the lesser part of the timeshare, while Akers is the early-down back and likely to receive goal-line work. There's a chance Henderson has a bigger role than anticipated, which prevents us from trusting Akers as anything more than a high-end RB3.

Taylor has a chance to be a Derrick Henry style RB1, but unlikely in 2020. Should produce solid RB2 numbers in Indy.Potential three down workhorse on a dynamite offense
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
On FREAKING Wisconsin! JT lands in the perfect scenario in Indy with an indoor team, solid offensive line and veteran quarterback. The only question is how long before he unseats Marlon Mack? Coach Reich has stated he will ride the hot hand and there is no denying Taylor if he can rise to the occasion. 
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Phenomenal RB prospect who landed with a team that ran the ball top 5 in the NFL last year. May start off slow, but will be too good to keep off the field and could be a top 12 RB in the 2nd half of the season. Major upside.Incredible RB prospect who has opportunity to play as a rookie. In an explosive offense who profiles as a workhorse. Should be amongst the top RBs in the game within a few short years. Banking on upside here and the profile to win out.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
While I do see Taylor finishing the season as the RB1 in Indy, it's unlikely he gets too much work right out of the gate with there being no preseason. If you feel comfortable waiting a few weeks for him to acclimate, you could have yourself a solid RB2Both in reality and fantasy, Cam Akers is one of the most exciting rookies coming into the league. He enters an offense that desperately needs a new face at the RB position and I expect Akers to be that guy. Due to COVID, it may take a few weeks, but Akers should finish the season as the clear RB1 on the Rams and has top-24 fantasy potential as well.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
1 of 7 RBs of 220+ pounds to run a sub-4.4 40 at the NFL Combine in past 20 years - may take awhile to overtake Mack in touches but I'll bet he gets thereMy bet for rookie RB to see most touches - skills to be a featured back (with a little pass game improvement), and team clearly lacks confidence in D. Henderson in that role
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Taylor is a tough back to evaluate heading into the fantasy season. He has tremendous skill and will be playing behind perhaps the best offensive line in football. But Marlon Mack will still factor in, especially given the lack of preseason games, which should negatively impact all rookies. And don't forget Nyheim Hines, who may steal much of the passing-down work from Taylor, especially given the latter's struggles with drops in college. There's tremendous upside, but plenty of downside that shouldn't be ignored entirely.

Taylor ended up in a fantastic situation for a rookie playing behind one of the best offensive lines in the league on a team that loves to run the football. Taylor should start as a low-end RB2 to begin the season and emerge as a high-end RB2 to low-end RB1 to close the season.The Rams may have as many as four members in their RBBC, Akers is the early favorite to be the lead back in one of the most intriguing timeshare situations in the NFL.

 Akers was a 5-star HS recruit, played behind one of the worst O-Lines in the country at FSU and still put up 1,100 and 8 his freshman year. He can rush, pass, and block, is durable, and was a 2nd round pick by a team that had just spent a 3rd round pick on a RB the year prior. Plus, even in a down year last season, Gurley put up 14 TDs in that offense. Akers is a RB2 with high-end RB1 upside.

Taylor seeing 250 carries in 2020 isn't out of the realm of possibilities. If that happens, behind this offensive line, Taylor could easily finish as a top-15 RB this season.This is one of the most puzzling selections to me in the entire draft. While I wasn't a huge Akers fan heading into the draft, I believed he could have value as a pass-catching back or a player that would thrive being moved out into space. Darrell Henderson is still there and could be the 1st/2nd down back, while Akers assumes the 3rd down work. However, this OL is still horrendous and is not going to help these RBs at all. This could be a David Montgomery type selection in year one, where the talent level is there, but the OL just simply can't hold up. Akers is a very risky pick in Dynasty leagues.

He finished his 3yr college career with over 6000 yards from scrimmage and had more 200 yard games than sub-100yd games. Taylor behind the Colts O-line is just going to be nuts.Cam Akers has the easiest path to a featured role among these rookie RBs in terms of proven competition in their backfield. Akers also happens to be a baller. @Ihartitz

Has the talent and receiving chops to overtake a three-down role behind a Top-Five line right from the start. He probably won't, given Mack is still only 24 and fresh off 1,000 yards... but they traded up to ensure they got Taylor, and clearly have future workhorse visions.

Barring a terrible landing spot, another rookie I love. Maybe a bit of a shock for now but all these rookies typically move up by draft day, I'm just saving you the sadness of watching your "value" pick creep up boards into August.
