Yes, Taylor finished the season on fire last year and was absolutely dominant down the stretch. However, we have to acknowledge the defenses that he was playing against during that time. As we project forward, it's important to keep in mind the offensive philosophy from this team and that they want to utilize multiple RBs in their rotation. With Marlon Mack back from injury, we should see him syphon some work away from JT and Hines is always going to have his role. Taylor is still worth drafting as a top-12 RB, but we should be tempering our expectations for him heading into 2021.

Jonathan Taylor 'earned the right to be the main guy' per Frank Reich

Colts coach Frank Reich acknowledged that RB Jonathan Taylor “earned the right to be the main guy.”

Fantasy Impact

He really established himself,” Reich said when discussing Taylor's late-season surge. Zak Keefer of The Athletic predicts Taylor will get at least 60% of the team's carries in 2021, with Marlon Mack checking in at 25% and Nyheim Hines receiving the rest. Of course, this is just beat writer speculation, but Reich's quote is encouraging for fantasy players targeting Taylor in the middle of Round 1. Keefer also points out that Reich likes to ride the hot hand with his running backs. Entering training camp it's clear that Taylor will be receiving the first crack at establishing himself.
