Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss stands to benefit from Jonathan Taylor's thumb injury starting in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans. Taylor will have thumb surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least 2-to-3 weeks. Moss filled in nicely during the early portion of the season while Taylor was on the PUP list while recovering from ankle surgery. If he's available, fantasy managers should make picking Moss up off of waivers this week a priority in all formats.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss carried the ball eight times for 55 yards in the team's 27-20 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was also targeted three times for two catches for an additional 15 yards through the air. Moss' involvement in Indy's offense has varied tremendously over the last few weeks, as Sunday marked the most opportunities he's seen since Week 8. It's unclear how certain of a role Moss will have moving forward, but his efficiency in the team's win may suggest that he'll see a similar amount of volume moving forward. Fantasy managers should likely keep Moss on the bench in Week 13 when they face a tough Tennessee Titans run defense, but managers in deeper standard formats could look to him as a potential RB4/Flex option.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss has slowly been losing his fantasy value over the past few weeks with the return of running back Jonathan Taylor. This came to light most recently in Week 10, when Moss saw just one carry for two total yards in the team's 10-6 win against the New England Patriots. It's unclear if his lack of usage will continue, but as it currently stands there isn't enough to put him back onto the fantasy radar for his Week 12 matchup against a stingy Tampa Bay Buccaneers run defense. Moss should be on the bench in most formats for this matchup.
Nov 24, 2023 7:47 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss was a non-factor in the team's 10-6 win against the New England Patriots. Moss saw only one carry for two yards, and did not receive any targets in the receiving game. Fellow running back Jonathan Taylor took virtually all the ball carrying opportunities for Indy, a trend that has increased over the past few weeks. Moss is likely off the fantasy radar moving forward if his volume continues to diminish the way it has over recent weeks. Moss and the Colts will go on bye in Week 11 and then host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss is coming off one of his least effective outings of the season in the team's Week 9 win against the Carolina Panthers. Moss ran the ball only seven times for 26 yards, while also gaining no targets in the receiving game. With the return of running back Jonathan Taylor, Moss' volume has slowly started to diminish. He'll now face a New England Patriots rush defense ranked in the top eleven of yards allowed per game. With his volume in question and a tougher opponent, fantasy managers may want to proceed with caution before starting Moss in Week 10. Dependent on bye weeks, Moss should be viewed as an RB3/4 option for this Week 10 matchup
Nov 10, 2023 8:07 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss carried the ball seven times for 26 yards in the team's 27-13 win against the Carolina Panthers. Moss was also not involved in the receiving game for Indy, receiving no targets on the day. It was Colts running back Jonathan Taylor who got most of the touches in the team's win, as he received 23 total opportunities to Moss' seven. As Taylor's involvement potentially increases over the coming weeks, Moss may be limited to a touchdown-dependent role for fantasy value. Moss will look to increase his usage when the Colts face the New England Patriots in Week 10.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (heel) stamped another solid fantasy performance in the team's Week 8 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Moss ran the ball 11 times for 66 yards and punched in the team's lone rushing touchdown on the day. Moss did find himself on the injury report this week dealing with a heel issue but was removed from the team's final injury report on Friday. If he is a full-go, he finds himself in an extremely favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers' defense has allowed the second-most points to opposing fantasy running backs, as well as allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to teams this season. While he will continue to split touches with running back Jonathan Taylor, Moss has taken most of the red zone work between the two backs. The fifth-year running back can look to be included as a high-end RB2 for the upcoming matchup.
Nov 3, 2023 8:12 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss put together another strong fantasy outing in the team's 38-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Moss rushed the ball 11 times for 66 yards while scoring the team's lone rushing touchdown. Moss also reeled in his only target on the day for an additional eight yards through the air. The fifth-year running back has sustained a fantasy-relevant role despite the return of running back Jonathan Taylor. Moss has emerged as the designated goal line and red zone back for Indy, receiving five of his carries in the red zone on Sunday. This usage can instill some confidence into fantasy managers to continue to include Moss in lineups moving forward. He'll look to continue his production in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers, a team allowing the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow, heel) is officially active for Sunday's game versus the New Orleans Saints. The initial belief was that Moss, who had been listed as questionable, would be a true game-time decision. In the end, though, the Colts decided that he is healthy enough to play. The 25-year-old has been one of the NFL's most talented rushers this year, totaling 523 rushing yards and four touchdowns en route to ranking as the RB5 in fantasy through seven weeks. However, the presence of Jonathan Taylor complicates matters, especially as the Colts continue to search for their identity with Gardner Minshew II at quarterback. Moss and Taylor are both mid-range RB2 options at this point.

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow, heel) is expected to play in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints, per Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report. The initial belief was that he would be a true game-time decision, but Schultz's latest report suggests that Moss will play. The 25-year-old has been one of the NFL's most talented rushers this year, totaling 523 rushing yards and four touchdowns en route to ranking as the RB5 in fantasy through seven weeks. However, the presence of Jonathan Taylor complicates matters, especially as the Colts continue to search for their identity with Gardner Minshew II at quarterback. Moss and Taylor are both mid-range RB2 options at this point.
Oct 29, 2023 10:31 AM EST
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow, heel) will go through pre-game warmups on Sunday. If all goes well, the 25-year-old will play in Week 8. However, if things don't go as planned, Jonathan Taylor will get most of the work against the Saints. Taylor and Moss have split touches over the last few weeks, although the former appears ready to reclaim his spot as the No. 1 option out of the backfield. For now, Moss remains questionable. But even if he gets the green light, he may be limited physically and cede carries to Taylor, which isn't an ideal scenario for fantasy managers.
Oct 29, 2023 12:52 AM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow, heel) missed practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Moss was a DNP on Wednesday before getting in a limited session on Thursday and another DNP on Friday. The fact he missed Friday's session puts him on the wrong side of questionable for Week 8, which would be a major boost for Jonathan Taylor this Sunday. Moss has filled in for Taylor admirably this season, rushing for 523 yards and four touchdowns on 114 carries to go along with 15 catches (19 targets) for 115 yards and another score through the air. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on Moss' status prior to kickoff on Sunday but it's fair to wonder how effective he would be even if he suited up.
Oct 27, 2023 6:25 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow/heel) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. This an upgrade for Moss, who couldn't participate in Wednesday's session while banged up with elbow and heel issues. The 25-year-old looks to be on the right side of the questionable tag and on course to play in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints. Moss, fantasy's overall RB5 in full-PPR scoring, has stayed heavily involved in Indianapolis' offense, even with Jonathan Taylor back in the fold. Moss, who was outproduced 120-67 by Taylor in Week 7 total yardage, figures to only trend down with Taylor's workload likely to steadily rise as he gets back to speed from his early-season absence. Assuming he suits up, Moss looks like a dicey, volume-driven RB2/3 on Sunday against a Saints defense containing opposing RBs to the third-fewest half-PPR fantasy points.
Oct 27, 2023 12:47 AM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (elbow, heel) missed Wednesday's practice with elbow and heel issues. It was reported earlier that Moss missed Wednesday's session with an undisclosed issue but now we know the real reason why he was unable to practice. Fantasy managers that roster Moss and Jonathan Taylor will want to keep an eye on the former's practice status over the next few days. If Moss isn't able to get in a limited session on Thursday or Friday then Taylor could be in line for a big workload on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Oct 25, 2023 6:32 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (undisclosed) is not practicing on Wednesday for an unknown reason. This close to the trade deadline, there will be speculation that he is being held out of practice while the Colts search for a trade partner after the return of Jonathan Taylor. However, there are no facts to back that up, so it could be injury or personal-related, too. This will be a situation worth monitoring, as Taylor could get back his workhorse role if Moss is not active on gameday against the New Orleans Saints. There is plenty of time before Sunday, so it's too early to draw any conclusions. Wednesday's official injury report should give fantasy managers a better understanding of why Moss is absent.
Oct 25, 2023 2:48 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss had another productive day in the team's 39-38 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He carried the ball 18 times for 57 yards and reeled in one catch for an additional five yards. Moss has remained involved in Indy's backfield since running back Jonathan Taylor's return, and the two backs both receiving 18 carries on Sunday is a good indication that he will continue to be involved moving forward. While Moss' opportunities may continue to diminish with the emergence of Taylor, he is still currently in play as a viable fantasy option moving forward. He'll face an above-average New Orleans Saints run defense in Week 8 and can be considered an RB3/Flex option for that matchup.
Oct 22, 2023 11:51 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss has remained a strong fantasy option despite fellow running back Jonathan Taylor's return in Week 5. Moss reeled in six catches for 38 yards with an additional 21 yards on the ground and the team's lone rushing touchdown in the Week 6 loss to the Jaguars. While Moss has still carried some fantasy relevancy, the Colts Week 7 matchup against the Cleveland Browns leaves little hope that both running backs will be able to have formidable fantasy performances. The Browns' defense currently allows only 79 yards per game, good for the third-fewest in the NFL. With the loss in volume and a tough matchup, fantasy managers can, at best, expect an RB3/4 performance from Moss.
Oct 20, 2023 8:01 PM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss kept himself in the mix in Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, carrying the ball seven times for 21 yards and finding the end zone for the team's lone rushing touchdown. Moss also played a role in the receiving game, reeling in six catches for 38 yards. Despite running back Jonathan Taylor's return, the two backs have kept a fairly even split of touches in the backfield, and it's unclear how much that will change moving forward. Moss will face one of the league's best defenses in Week 7 in the Cleveland Browns, a team allowing an average of only 71 rushing yards per game. Assuming Taylor's role will continue to increase alongside this unfavorable matchup, Moss might be better left on benches in Week 7.
Oct 16, 2023 12:58 AM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss had a career day on Sunday in a 23-16 win against the Tennessee Titans, carrying the ball 23 times for 165 yards and two touchdowns. It was a surprise for Moss to see that type of volume with the Colts activating starting running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Moss had 23 carries despite Taylor making this his season debut. Moss received 25 total touches to Taylor's seven, indicating that the Colts plan on meticulously ramping up Taylor's return from injury. While it is uncertain how Indy's backfield volume will unfold moving forward, Sunday's win made it apparent that the Colts intend to keep Moss involved in the offense. Moss will face a Jacksonville Jaguar defense in Week 6 that allows only 95 total rushing yards a game but is worth consideration in lineups as an RB2 despite the return of Taylor.
Oct 9, 2023 1:50 AM EST
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (forearm) is off the injury report completely and will make his 2023 season debut this Sunday against the Houston Texans. After an ineffective start for the team's RBs in the Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and with rookie Evan Hull (knee) on Injured Reserve, Moss could have a shot to handle lead-back duties for Indy this weekend. Deon Jackson flopped with 13 carries for 14 yards while adding five catches for 14 yards in the season opener. He also lost two fumbles. Moss might be slightly eased back in after returning from a fractured arm in training camp, but the 25-year-old now has the most upside of Colts RBs in fantasy after he averaged 4.8 yards per carry on 76 rushing attempts for the Colts in 2022. Jonathan Taylor (ankle) isn't eligible to return from IR until Week 5.
