Week 8 Review

Chad Workman / @tweetsbychadfw

On one hand, the first 8 weeks of the NFL season have flown by, but on the other, it’s hard to believe all the action we’ve seen thus far has fit into 8 weeks. With so much going on around the NFL, we have a lot to discuss. Let’s dive in.

Where in the World is Jonathan Taylor?

The Colts leading rusher on Sunday carried the ball 20 times for 89 yards and a score, adding a two-point conversion. A respectable stat line. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, this was Jordan Wilkins’ stat line, not Jonathan Taylor’s. We saw a reemergence of Nyheim Hines in this one, as he caught two touchdown passes. So that begs the question, where is Jonathan Taylor? Taylor rushed 11 times for just 22 yards. He failed to convert both of his goal line carries, while Wilkins and even tight end Trey Burton converted on their attempts. Taylor was simply innefective, failing to find any running room. Things won’t get any easier for Taylor next week against the Ravens vaunted defensive line, but after that he gets the Titans twice, and the Packers once in his next three. Taylor has been a huge disappointment, but don’t give up on him in your dynasty leagues.
