Jonathan Taylor leads all FBS players in key stat since 2015
No matter what number you look at, Jonathan Taylor looks like an absolute beast.
The junior running back for the Badgers is already just 43 yards shy of a third straight 1,000-yard rushing season. He already has 15 touchdowns on the ground this season, just one shy of his career-high of 16 set last season, with four more touchdowns through the air.
It remains to be seen if Taylor will garner enough Heisman attention to be a finalist for the award. However, he leads all FBS players in one key stat going all the way back to 2015.
According to Wisconsin on BTN, Taylor is tops when it comes to yards after contact. He is better than Dalvin Cook and Bryce Love, and he’s even better than Heisman winner and former Louisville QB Lamar Jackson.
