Week 7: at Tennessee Titans
All WR vs TEN
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Donte Moncrief (broken scapula in his shoulder) is getting closer to returning to action, according to head coach Chuck Pagano, but there is still no set date for that return as of Monday, October 17. In other words, Andrew Luck (21/32 for 252 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -21 yards and 7/53/1 rushing for Luck) will make do with T.Y. Hilton (nine targets for 3/49/0 receiving last week) and little else at wide receiver in Week Seven - Phillip Dorsett left the game against Houston due to a hamstring injury and he may not be available to play on Sunday. Dwayne Allen is likely out due to a high ankle sprain, leaving Jack Doyle (four targets for 4/53/1 receiving last week) as the last tight end worth considering from a fantasy perspective. Chester Rogers (four targets for 4/63/0 receiving) actually led the Colts in receiving against the Texans.
The Titans' pass defense is ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 235.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores given out vs. six interceptions (tied for sixth in the NFL) and 18 sacks generated (fifth in the league.) All told Cody Kessler and Terrelle Pryor posted 27/42 for 301 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown at Tennessee (the quarterbacks were sacked six times for -36 yards). From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Tennessee has averaged 17.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (eighth-least in the NFL); and 20.1 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (10th-least); with 7.7 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (15th-most). Usually, this is a tough-nosed pass defense.
On balance this looks like a tough matchup for the injury-riddled Indianapolis passing attack.
