It wasn't looking good for Taylor from a fantasy perspective through the first half of last week, but the Colts remembered that they had him on their roster in the second half and he went ballistic. Taylor rumbled for 145 yards on the ground and two touchdowns and he helped carry the Colts to a dominant win over the Texans. JT reminded us that he's a truly special RB when he is given the smallest sliver of daylight as one of his touchdowns was the result of a 83-yard run in which he hit 20.5 MPH according to Next Gen Stats. He'll have a more difficult time breaking free for long runs here against the 49ers defense that's allowing just 77 rushing yards per game to opposing RBs, but that doesn't mean that we should move Taylor out of our top-5 RBs on the week. Fire him up with full confidence here.
