Fantasy football managers are busy looking through the waiver wire to help fill the holes in their roster. This is one of the final weeks but makes it tough with six teams on bye including teams like the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens.
The running back position is without some of the top players this week with Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs, and James Cook on bye this week. For any teams looking for help at running back, Zack Moss is a must-add and has a chance to be a Top 10 running back over the next three weeks.
Jonathan Taylor to have thumb surgery opens the door for Zack Moss to be a fantasy football star
Jonathan Taylor has had a tough season after beginning the year on injured reserve but recently looked like the amazing running back that he is with five total touchdowns over the past five games and over 65 rushing yards in four of the five.
Unfortunately, he suffered a thumb injury against the Bucs that will now require surgery. He is expected to miss the next two or three weeks and Moss should return to being the primary running back for the Colts.
The former Bills running back looked great to start the year when Taylor was out with 445 rushing yards and four total touchdowns in the first four weeks. He should be able to produce at a similar level with a very favorable matchup over the next three games.
Moss and the Colts play the Titans in Week 13, a defense that Moss had 165 rushing yards and two touchdowns in Week 4. After that game, the Colts have games against the Bengals and the Steelers which both are allowing over 100 rushing yards per game.
Whether your league does waivers based on waiver priority or FAAB, Zack Moss has to be a priority and will be an RB1 as long as Taylor is out.
