This week’s fantasy outlook is a little murky with so many players on the injury report for the Colts. But here is who you should start, should they play.
The Colts are very banged up going into this week. But they still have some solid fantasy plays this week. The Raiders don’t have quite as many, but they have a couple as well. These are the guys from both teams that you should start and avoid.
Marlon Mack should continue to be started unless noted otherwise. He is third in the league in rushing, and has a couple of rushing touchdowns. Expect him to get a lot of carries in this one, so he has the potential to put up some big numbers for your fantasy team.
Eric Ebron might be worth a start this week. He has yet to find the end zone this season. But with T.Y. Hilton possibly out this week, Ebron could be a nice red zone target for Jacoby Brissett. Jack Doyle is worth a possible start for the same reason. Start both in deeper leagues only.
Brissett should be started as well. He’s coming off the best week of his career. Even though he might be without his best receiver, he has still shown the ability to move the ball down the field. He also keeps throwing touchdown passes. He’ll be in my lineup for sure.
If Hilton plays, start him. He continues to catch touchdown passes. He has one in every game this season. Odds are he would get at least one more if he plays Sunday. That quad shouldn’t hamper him enough to not score because it didn’t last week.
For the Raiders, Darren Waller is a solid start this week. He had over 100 yards receiving last week, and is going against a linebacking corp that isn’t great in pass coverage. He could have another big game for Oakland.
Josh Jacobs is worth a start too. While the Colts have done a better jobs stopping the run this year than in years past, Jacobs could have a good game if Darius Leonard is still out. He’s at least an RB2 this week, and could give you some big points if he scores.
If the Colts are more healthy going into this game, then some of these players will have bigger games. Keep your eyes on the injury report.
