RB - IND
Week 13 Outlook
With the news of Jonathan Taylor's thumb injury, Moss resumes his previous role as Indy's bell cow. In Weeks 2-5, he played at least 76% of the snaps weekly, averaging 24.2 touches and 129.3 total yards. Among 55 qualifying backs, Moss has been a king at tackle-breaking, ranking 18th in explosive run rate and 10th in missed tackles forced per attempt and yards after contact per attempt. Since Week 7, Tennessee has been a team that you can run the ball against, ranking 15th in rushing yards per game, 10th in explosive run rate, and 12th in yards after contact per attempt allowed. The last time that Moss tangled with Tennessee, he had 25 touches, rumbling for 195 total yards. Moss could easily see a similar workload this week. Week 13 Positional Value: RB1
Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is dealing with a thumb injury that could potentially cause him to miss time, making Moss a priority addition in leagues where he's available (particularly for Taylor investors). Moss has enjoyed a renaissance season, thriving in roles ranging from workhorse to backup. With Taylor on injured reserve to start the year and then eased back into action in Week 5, Moss was an early-season monster, averaging 111.3 rushing yards, 18.0 receiving yards and a touchdown per week over a four-game stretch from Week 2 to Week 5. It's possible we won't have clarity on the Taylor injury before you have to put in your Tuesday-night FAAB bids, but Moss warrants a robust bid for RB-needy teams based on the possibility he'll get workhorse duty in one or more games.
