Normally, this game would feature a ton of players that could be great starts in fantasy. While there aren’t quite as much this time, there are still some players who deserve starts.
The Colts have had some good players in fantasy this season. Marlon Mack and T.Y. Hilton have been steady all year, and Jacoby Brissett has thrown in a few good performances. How will they fare this Sunday against the Steelers in Pittsburgh?
First off, start T.Y. Hilton. Hilton should play, even though he was limited yesterday in practice because of a calf injury. Hilton has been the most consistent player on the Colts. He will likely score a touchdown in this one, because that’s just what he does. Start him on Sunday.
Mack deserves a start as well. The Colts will likely try to establish the run early in this game. While Pittsburgh’s defense has been playing better recently, they still are susceptible to long runs and sustained drives. Mack could have another solid day like he did a week ago.
Jack Doyle could be worth a start in this one. The Colts love using tight ends, and Doyle could have a good day against the Steelers’ zone defense. He is the security blanket for Brissett and could actually score a touchdown in this one too.
Speaking of Brissett, leave him on the bench if you have better options. This game might not be the best one for him in terms of fantasy points. He has a chance for a solid outing, but if you have a better option you should leave him on the bench.
For the Steelers, the only start that would be reliable for them is JuJu Smith-Schuster. He is their number one target. But even that might be a stretch due to Mason Rudolph being their quarterback. With James Conner likely out, they don’t have a solid fantasy contributor.
Their defense might be worth a start just because of how many turnovers they force. They may not be able to stop the Colts offense from scoring points, but they might force a couple of turnovers.
Hopefully these players can guide you to a win in your league this week.
