Fantasy Football Outlook: Colts vs Steelers

HOUSTON, TX - NOVEMBER 05: T.Y. Hilton /

The Colts enjoyed some impressive fantasy football performances in last week’s win in Houston, and they’ll look to keep it up on Sunday against a stingy Steelers defense.

Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton

If you took our fantasy football advice last week, you would’ve easily won your weekly matchup as T.Y. Hilton exploded for 175 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Texans.

We’re going to ride the hot hand and suggest you put Hilton in your fantasy lineup again this week.

Hilton is the equivalent of a home run hitter who could strike out four times in any game, but all he needs is one or two opportunities to beat the defense deep to put up some big numbers.

Hilton and Jacoby Brissett have formed a dynamic connection and they’ll need to come up big again this week if the Colts have any hope of pulling an upset.

Running Back Marlon Mack

Mack had a quiet game last week against Houston, but he could have a favorable matchup this week.

Pittsburgh has a stellar defense, but they’re below league-average at containing running backs coming out of the backfield in the passing game according to Football Outsiders.

The Colts would be wise to get Mack the ball in the screen game and on swing passes along with his usual allotment of carries.

Tight End Jack Doyle

Jack Doyle has become a reliable target for Jacoby Brissett.

He’s caught 5 or more passes in each of the last five games that he’s been healthy. He also has 2 touchdowns in the past four games, and Brissett will be looking his way early and often on Sunday.
