Jonathan Taylor Undergoing Thumb Surgery Wednesday

Wednesday, November 29, 1:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (thumb) will undergo surgery on his injured right thumb on Wednesday, according to head coach Shane Steichen. Steichen isn't sure how much time Taylor will miss, but he said he hoped the 2021 All-Pro would be back sooner than later, depending on how his rehab process goes. Injured Reserve is not being considered for Taylor, which means he should be able to return in two to three weeks. The biggest concerns for Taylor with the injury are ball security and pass protection. Fantasy managers will need to keep Taylor stashed for now. In the meantime, Zack Moss will serve as Indy's lead back with Trey Sermon backing him up. Moss has 672 rushing yards (10th among RBs) and is averaging almost five yards per carry in 2023.

Michael Pittman Jr. Eclipses 100 Yards in Week 12 Win

Sunday, November 26, 8:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. reeled in ten catches for 107 yards in the team's 27-20 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Pittman saw 13 total targets in the matchup, making it the second week in a row he's seen over ten targets and the seventh time this season he's hit that mark. Pittman remains a weekly starter in PPR formats with his target share and his rapport with quarterback Gardner Minshew. The fifth-year receiver should be included in most lineups as a high-end WR2 option in Week 13 when the Colts square off against the Tennessee Titans.
