Solid performance in tough matchup
Taylor rushed 16 times for 83 yards and a touchdown and brought in four of five targets for 14 yards in the Colts' 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
The Colts went with a pass-heavy approach for a good portion of the game against the Buccaneers' extremely tough run defense, but coach Frank Reich finally unleashed Taylor on the Colts' game-tying drive in the fourth quarter. The second-year back carried the ball eight times on the 10-play march, recording 58 yards, which included a four-yard rushing touchdown. Taylor also continued to enjoy a steady role in the passing game, albeit in not very efficient fashion in terms of yardage Sunday. He'll naturally remain a top play in all formats during a Week 13 home divisional matchup that presents a much more palatable caliber of competition in the form of the Texans.
