Last week, RB Travis Etienne had a career-high 184 yards from scrimmage (136 rushing and 48 receiving) and two touchdowns.
With 540 yards from scrimmage this year, he is the second-ranked RB.
The only tight end in the league with four or more catches in five games this year is Evan Engram.
In all four of his contests with the Colts, he has five or more receptions.

 

Taylor should see increased workload, but the Jaguars are fifth in the league at stopping the run.

The Jaguars’ safe starting lineup should include Etienne, Engram, quarterback Trevor Lawrence, wide receivers Christian Kirk and Calvin Ridley.
