Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
How ridiculous is Taylor's fantasy production so far this season? He currently has 266.1 Half PPR fantasy points through 12 games. The next closest player to him at the RB position is Austin Ekeler with 217.2 Half PPR points. He's currently averaging 22.2 fantasy points per game and he has now scored a touchdown in 9 straight games. Frank Reich finally came to the conclusion that fantasy managers have had for the last two years now that JT deserves a massive workload and it's translating to wins for the Colts and fantasy players alike. As if all of that wasn't good enough, Taylor now gets a matchup against the Texans defense that is allowing 120.1 rushing yards per game to opposing RBs, which is the second highest mark in the league. You were already doing this, but continue to start Taylor as the RB1 every week moving forward.It's hard to find any sort of issue with Jefferson lately from a fantasy perspective. Over the last four games, he is 7th in the NFL at the WR position in targets, 8th in receptions, 1st in receiving yards, and tied for the second-most receiving touchdowns. On top of all of that, he is the WR1 over that time frame and he's helping lead fantasy rosters to victories. After doing all that, he now is rewarded with about as nice of a matchup as you can find for opposing WRs. He should draw primary coverage this week from Amni Oruwariye, who is allowing a 66% catch rate on the season and 1.13 Yards Per Route Covered. Jefferson's going to put together a solid performance here in Week 13 and he should be viewed as a locked-in top-5 play.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Taylor had 28 fantasy points the last time these teams met and the Texans are 25th against fantasy running backs this year. Taylor is an elite RB1 this week.Jefferson had 16 fantasy points the last time these two teams met and he should be poised for a big game in the rematch, even with the Lions being 4th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.
