We didn't get any preseason games, so we don't have any clue how this timeshare will work, but I'm going with talent. The Colts selected Taylor in the second round of the draft because they felt they had a void at the position, period. They're now about to go and face the defense that allowed 10 running backs to post top-12 performances against them in 2019. Keep in mind they had Calais Campbell on the roster the entire season and Marcell Dareus for half of it. They're no longer on the defensive line. To highlight the issue, the Jaguars allowed 5.20 yards per carry with Dareus off the field last year. They allowed 5.76 yards per carry when Campbell was off the field. Teams should be able to run wild on this defense, especially one with a top-three offensive line. Again, going back to last year, they allowed 205.2 total yards per game to running backs, which allows for multiple producers. I'm expecting around 15 touches for Taylor in his debut and that's good enough for an RB2 start, even with the uncertainty in his role, as this defense is just too giving.
