The Colts play the Texans on Sunday in a battle for first place in the division. While the game is important from that standpoint, there are also plenty of fantasy players to be started in this one.
Houston comes to town for the first of two games these teams will play this season. It should be a great game to watch. It should also be a great game for your fantasy team if you have players from either team. Several players are must-starts in this one.
T.Y. Hilton is the first guy. He absolutely owns the Texans. In 14 games against the Texans, Hilton averages 5 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. He has played well in the games he’s been healthy enough to play in this year too. He should have another big game and is a must-start in all leagues.
Marlon Mack should also be started. He has the potential to put up some big numbers. He ran for 148 yards in their meeting in the playoffs last year. While Houston’s defense is playing slightly better, Mack could still produce. Start him in all leagues as well.
Jacoby Brissett could be a decent start too. Hilton is bound to get open, so he should have a guy to throw to all game. He has been up and down this season in terms of fantasy points. He probably should only be started in two quarterback leagues.
For Houston, Deshuan Watson is a must start. He has been on fire in the last two games. While the Colts defense has played better recently, he still could put up some big numbers. He should be started in all leagues without hesitation.
DeAndre Hopkins should be started too. Hopkins is one of the best receivers in the league. He can catch anything that’s thrown near him. The Colts sometimes have issues covering him, and could be missing a couple of starting corners. He could have a big game.
All of these guys should help you win your league this week, so set your lineup accordingly!
