Jonathan Taylor rushed 26 times for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 2 win over the Vikings, adding two receptions for nine additional yards.
Taylor out-touched Nyheim Hines 28-1 as he seized complete control of the Colts' Marlon Mack-less backfield. Taylor averaged only 3.9 yards per carry, but his number was called in one obvious rushing situation after another as the Colts buried the hapless Vikings. Early in the game, Taylor was routinely tacking on extra yards and looking a gear quicker than the defense. As expected, he had the looks of a potential monster and league winner in fantasy. Hines isn't going to be limited to one touch most weeks, but Taylor has already established that he will be an RB1 going forward. In fact, he will be in the mix for RB1 overall status in Week 3 against the next-level bad New York Jets. Sep 20 3:55 pm (EST)
