Jonathan Taylor Expected To Outrush All Rookies

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor is expected to finish the year with the most rushing yards among rookies, according to Pro Football Focus. Topping the list with 858 yards and ahead of both Cam Akers (829) and D'Andre Swift (727), the site predicts that the former Badger will end the 2020 campaign with 858 yards. With Taylor having the protection of one of the most efficient offensive lines in the league, he has a shot to be one of the best fantasy backs overall despite the potential timeshare with Marlon Mack. He is a definite first of second overall dynasty pick and a third or fourth-round selection in redraft formats heading into the regular season.

Jordan Wilkins Not A Lock To Make Team

It's not a lock that Indianapolis Colts running back Jordan Wilkins will make the team as the fourth running back behind Marlon Mack, rookie Jonathan Taylor and third-down back Nyheim Hines. The Colts hardly ever use a fourth running back, and the skill group is accounting for another body with the signing of fullback Roosevelt Nix, who they envision having a routine offensive role. Wilkins has been a special teams contributor in his two NFL seasons, so that may be the only thing keeping him on the roster this year. He might be one injury away from having a role offensively, but he'll need to lock down a presence on special teams in order to secure a 53-man roster spot. Needless to say, Wilkins shouldn't be drafted in most fantasy leagues.

Darius Leonard Impressed With DeForest Buckner

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard knows the team's defense will get better with the addition of defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. "Having DeForest come onto the team and help our defense out, he's a complete dog. Watching his tape, he has a motor that doesn't stop," Leonard said. The Colts secondary allowed 248.9 passing yards per game last year, the 10th-most in the league. An improved defensive line should create more pressure on opposing quarterbacks and force them to get the ball out quicker. Buckner hasn't missed a game in three seasons and was the only player with 40-plus QB pressures, 10-plus run stuffs and seven-plus hustle stops in 2019, according to Next Gen Stats. Buckner should easily be a top-10 defensive line target in IDP formats, while Indy's defense will likely be in the streaming conversation this year.

Jonathan Taylor Predicted To Be A Top Rookie Back

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor is projected to finish the year as the second most productive rookie at his position, according to NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund. The analyst highlighted Taylor's 3,021 yards after contact since 2017, which was the most in college football during that span by 941 yards. Despite the probability of conceding touches with Marlon Mack this season, the 2020 41st overall pick could decisively surpass his ADP expectations, especially if Mack or Nyheim Hines were to go down with an injury during the year.

Michael Pittman Jr. Should Serve As Deep Threat

Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., drafted 34th overall in the second round, logged the most deep catches (12) of 20-plus air yards and receiving yards (493) in the Pac-12 last year and the fourth-most yards after the catch in the Pac-12 since 2018 with 716, per Pro Football Focus. Colts receivers had the fewest deep receptions in the NFL last season -- just six on 34 target -- so Pittman could be an immediate fit in the deep passing game for quarterback Philip Rivers. With T.Y. Hilton drawing coverage away from the rookie, Pittman has a pretty safe floor as a WR5/6 target late in fantasy drafts this year. He's been compared to former Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson, who had plenty of success on the deep ball when hooking up with Rivers.
