So if you managed to make it this far, well done! I hope you have a few of the studs in this division as they can pay some solid dividends this week. Will we see a repeat of the Andre Johnson / TY Hilton huge games in Indy this week?
Houston at Indianapolis
Last time these two met, both QBs had awesome games. Things have changed recently – I would not start Case Keenum because I think there’s a lot of better options out there, plus he’s been playing poor lately with just 2 TDs in his last 4 games (oh and he was benched last week for Captain Pick-6). Andrew Luck had been playing poor until last week – so I think he will have a nice game here. He has a nice game against a tougher Cincy defense last week; I feel that will continue in a nice divisional game.
Can’t trust either of the Indy running backs – if you start them this week, they will probably ruin your life. As for Ben Tate, he didn’t have a great game last time against Indy, but he did get a ton of work which was a good sign. I don’t expect a huge game for him this week either, unless he scores. Problem is, outside of the NE game where he scored three TDs, he had not scored since October against the Rams.
Tough to trust TY Hilton or even Coby Fleener here given what this offense has been over the past little while and last game they combined for 7 receptions and 60 yards. TY Hilton did have his best game of the year against Houston last time around, but he has basically been a non-factor over the past few weeks. As for Houston, I really like Andre Johnson in this matchup, as is with most matchups. He gets a boost in PPR, but obviously still a strong play in standard formats. Garrett Graham was very solid last week with 8 receptions for 73 yards and a TD, so if you need a TE he could be a sneaky play.
Buffalo at Jacksonville
I’m going to keep this one short. MJD you have to start as he eclipsed 100 total yards and almost had a TD to add to that. Cecil Shorts only had 2 receptions last week – good thing one was for a TD! He’s worth a start this week against a Buffalo defense that gave up a nice game to Vincent Jackson last week. Ace Sanders is an interesting guy as he looks like the #2 guy there and apparently can throw passing TDs. More of a deep league play.
Arizona at Tennessee
Ryan Fitzpatrick I think is no more than a streaming option or a deeper league play. A good thing for him is that the mighty Nick Foles had 3 TDs and almost 250 yards against this defense just two weeks ago.
CJ2K has been just “meh” for me the past couple of weeks. Had a short TD and managed double digits last week against Denver and the road does not get any easier this week. Arizona gives up the 3rd least yards per carry in the league at 3.6 which does not bode well for CJ2K. I don’t think he has a great game this week, but there’s always a chance he can get a short TD…..or maybe not as Arizona has given up just 5 rushing TDs all year! He’s a sit for me if you have someone better.

Kendall Wright I think is the only name worth mentioning here. He had “one of those games” last week against Denver. He should get back to his standard 6 receptions for 60 yards or better as he’s done all season. Justin Hunter I guess is an intriguing name, but I think last week was a game that nobody could predict and he will go back to being fairly irrelevant. No more than a deeper league play, or if you reeeeeeallllyyyy feel like gambling!
