Whether you’re in the fantasy football championship game, or you’re just looking for some daily fantasy players, this week’s Colts vs. Ravens game provides some intriguing options.
Tight End Jack Doyle
The Ravens have a potentially championship-caliber defense, ranking second in defensive efficiency according to Football Outsiders, but they do have one weakness. They rank 31st in the league against tight ends according to Football Outsiders, which means Jack Doyle could have a field day.
Doyle has been one of Jacoby Brissett’s most reliable targets this season, but he’s still been inconsistent much like the rest of the Colts’ offense.
Doyle does have five games with over 50 yards receiving and he has three touchdowns this year. This week provides a good matchup for Doyle to have another solid performance.

Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton
Hilton has been the ultimate hot-and-cold receiver this season. He has three games with over 150 yards receiving in 2017, and the Colts are 3-0 in those games where Hilton explodes.
The Ravens lost their number one cornerback Jimmy Smith to a season-ending Achilles injury, so they don’t have anyone in their secondary to matchup with Hilton’s speed. The only question is whether Jacoby Brissett will have enough time to find Hilton on those deep routes as he drops back behind a banged-up offensive line.
If you made it all the way to the championship game in your fantasy league, it’d be tough to rely on Hilton for a solid performance this week. However, if you’re looking for a high-upside play in daily fantasy, T.Y. Hilton could be a good option.
