We now have clarity on Taylor's situation, however, as he and the Colts have agreed to a three-year extension worth $42 million including $26.5 million in guarantees, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
As Schefter notes, it's the first time that a running back has secured a long-term deal of more than $10 million per year since Nick Chubb did so in 2021.
Taylor missed the first four games while placed on the PUP list, and Zack Moss has been a productive fantasy running back — RB10, RB4 and RB21 (half-PPR scoring) — in his three games this season. That said, Taylor will obviously dominate backfield touches going forward.
The Colts face the Tennessee Titans in Week 5, and they have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season.
