If you’re watching this game for fantasy football purposes, I suggest watching another game instead. There aren’t a whole lot of good options to be played in this one.
The Colts have been killed by injuries this season. If you have any of those players in fantasy, you’re probably getting killed by their absences. Unfortunately, it won’t get a whole lot better for this week’s game against Miami. In fact, it might be a little worse.
Marlon Mack is pretty much the only guy who is consistent for the Colts right now. He’s also the only playmaker who is still healthy. He could have a big game against a bad Miami defense. He’ll have to if Indy wants to put any points on the board at all.
Jack Doyle might be worth a start too. He caught a touchdown last week and expects to be a big part of the gameplan because of the lack of wide receiver depth the team currently has. Doyle should get a ton of targets too no matter who the quarterback is.
If you’re super desperate at tight end, Eric Ebron is worth a shot. He hasn’t been nearly as good as he was last year. Part of that is because Ebron has been dropping 13% of his targets. If the Colts get in the red zone, he’s always a threat to score.
The Colts defense should be started too. Miami’s offense is truly terrible and turns the ball over a lot. This could be a big game for a unit that is coming off a game where they forced two turnovers. This could give them a lot of confidence moving forward, and give you some much needed points.
On Miami’s side, the only player you should even think about starting is Ryan Fitzpatrick. This is only if you have absolutely zero other options. He might be good for a touchdown or two, but he is still more likely to commit turnovers than anything else.
These guys should help your fantasy team get a win this week if you start them wisely.
