Jordan Wilkins, RB
Jordan Wilkins is someone who many fans may not know. Yes, he is the backup to Johnathan Taylor. So why should the Titans be worried about him?
The last two games speak for themselves and are very useful when analyzing the Colts running back group.
In the last two games combined, starting running back, Johnathan Taylor has 17 carries. For a starting running back, that is not a lot. The game share is beginning to trend towards Wilkins, and it’s very noticeable.
For Jordan in the last two games, he has 31 attempts, 128 yards, and a touchdown. In just eight games, Wilkins has 222 yards on 60 rush attempts.
Wilkins is a key player because he has gotten “RB1” treatment from the Colts in the last two games. The Titans are also 17th in the league at stopping the run, allowing 117 rush yards a game. If Tennessee wants to win, they have to contain the ground game.
