Zack Moss Expected For Big Role Week 2
10 months ago

Zack Moss has returned to practice and is expected to be the lead Running Back for the Colts in Week 2.

If we learned anything from the Colts backfield in Week 1, it’s that you shouldn’t be overly-hyped for tremendous production from Deon Jackson. Jackson handled 71% of the snaps as the lead Running Back, but only rushed for a miserable 14 yards on 13 attempts. Sure, he had 5 catches for 14 yards to go with that, but the 2 lost fumbles he had almost guarantee he will be in the Colts doghouse for Week 2.


To make matters worse, Rookie Evan Hull has a knee injury that has him set to miss at least the next four games on Injured Reserve. The Colts elevated Jake Funk from their practice squad to their active roster in a corresponding move. This leaves Funk, Jackson, and Moss as the three active Running Backs for the Colts going into Sunday.


Moss is back to being a full participant in practice after missing the past few weeks recovering from a fractured forearm. He’s shown flashes of talent throughout his career, rushing for 114 yards in week 18 of last season. He’s expected to take on a bulk of the work in the backfield this Sunday and warrants a start as a flex in deeper leagues. That said, don’t be overly surprised if it’s Anthony Richardson who ends up falling in the endzone for a Touchdown instead of Moss.
