Examining the Colts’ backfield: This was the first game with a fully healthy Colts backfield since the team traded Nyheim Hines for Zack Moss.

  • Jonathan Taylor dominated playing time, as we’ve come to expect, but he didn’t play during two-minute drills of either half.
  • He will likely see an even higher percentage of snaps in games where the Colts don’t have two two-minute drills.
  • Taylor’s usage mixed with his talent should keep him as one of the top fantasy running backs over the rest of the season despite Indianapolis’ offensive line problems.
  • Moss overtook Deon Jackson to be the primary backup on early downs, while Jackson took the two-minute drill snaps.
  • If Taylor were to get injured at some point over the second half of the season, we would likely see both Moss and Jackson see significant playing time, rather than Jackson dominating snaps as he did earlier in the season when Taylor was hurt.

The Eagles replacing Dallas Goedert: Goedert landed on injured reserve earlier in the week with a shoulder injury.

  • Jack Stoll took over as the team’s primary tight end, as expected. He played every snap in two- or three-tight end sets, as well as a clear majority of snaps in 11 personnel.
  • He was rotated out a little more often from 11 personnel than Goedert typically is.
  • Stoll was limited to one target, which he caught for a seven-yard gain.
  • The Goedert injury just led the team to focus even more on the wide receivers in the passing game. All four of the Eagles’ wideouts ended up leading the team in receiving yards.
  • Stoll should be left on the waiver wire in the vast majority of leagues despite the playing time because he’s not a priority in the passing game.
  • Goedert should be held onto even though he will miss three more games. His talent will lead him to be a top-tier tight end once he’s back.


Table Notes

Snaps include plays called back due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.

Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear thrown-away pass, where the NFL may give the target to the nearest receiver, while this data will not.

Carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles won’t count for the total number of carries in the game.
