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.

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.

Jonathan Taylor A Yards-After-Contact Beast

Indianapolis Colts rookie running back Jonathan Taylor, drafted No. 41 overall in the second round, is projected to be the second-most productive rookie running back in 2020. His 3,921 yards after contact are the most in college football -- by 941 yards -- since 2017, according to Pro Football Focus. Taylor's nastiness as a runner coupled with Indianapolis' elite offensive line make him extremely attractive from a real-life and fantasy perspective in Year 1. He could be in somewhat of a timeshare with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines, but NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund has Taylor ranked as her No. 25 overall running back heading into the season. There's a lot to like here as a low-end RB2.
