Trey Sermon
Trey Sermon Early Favorite for Colts RB2
1 week ago

It appears as though Trey Sermon will be the primary backup to Jonathan Taylor.

With over two weeks of organized team activities in the books, NFL roster battles have provided franchises with further clarity on — or at least a glimpse of — what their depth charts will look like come September. For the Indianapolis Colts, in particular, it appears as though the running back position is nearly set in stone. “While Taylor was away, it was quite clear that Trey Sermon is the next man up at running back. In terms of the passing-down back, Hull appeared to get the initial looks ahead of Tyler Goodson,” according to reports. These rumblings out of Indianapolis make a hierarchy of Taylor, Sermon, Evan Hull, and Goodson seemingly inevitable heading into training camp.

 

In terms of fantasy, none of these backs outside of Taylor merit any sort of consideration (barring injury). With Anthony Richardson returning at quarterback, Taylor should flourish as a top-five running back in an elite rushing offense. Should Taylor go down, though, Sermon could be a valuable handcuff for fantasy owners, although he has a much lower ceiling than the 2021 First-Team All-Pro. Hull and Goodson, meanwhile, can be ignored in all formats being that Sermon has cemented himself as the top backup.
