Week 12: at Indianapolis Colts

All QB vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. Marcus Mariota had a solid fantasy day last week, but it was far from solid based purely on his play. Mariota threw a whopping four interceptions in their loss to the Steelers on Thursday night. This was Mariota's third straight game with an interception, and he now has 10 interceptions with only eight passing touchdowns on the season. Compare that to Mariota's career 45 passing touchdowns to only 19 interceptions coming into this season, and you will see how far he has fallen this year. Rishard Matthews continues to play a big role in this offense despite the return of Corey Davis, as Matthews is on the field for nearly every play and has averaged just over seven targets per game in the last three weeks. He had a big 75-yard deep ball last week for his third touchdown of the season. Delanie Walker has been one of the most consistently utilized tight ends this season, but he still has yet to find the end zone. Corey Davis is a stud from whom big things are expected. He has been targeted just one fewer time than Rishard Matthews in the last three weeks, but Davis has still yet to top 50 receiving yards since his return from injury. The Colts passing defense has been torched on many occasions this season. They lead the league in passing yards per attempt (8.3) and are second in most passing yards allowed per game (275). To their credit, this Colts secondary did play much better in their last game against the Steelers, holding Antonio Brown to just three receptions on seven targets for 47 yards. However, this secondary still allowed JuJu Smith-Schuster to go for nearly 100 yards and a touchdown against them. This unit struggled against the Titans in their last meeting earlier this season as Marcus Mariota passed for over 300 yards, doing a great job at spreading the ball amongst multiple receivers. Corey Davis will be back for the Titans this time, and he should be up against Pierre Desir for a lot of snaps here. Desir has not looked great in replacement of Vontae Davis, who also was struggling mightily this season. That side of the field should continue to be a gap that opposing offenses such as the Titans will look to exploit.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs MIA (21 / 32 / 141 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Matt Cassel had a rough day against the Dolphins Defense, completing 21 of 32 pass attempts for only 141 yards and one touchdown. The Titans struggled to move the ball for most of this game as they really missed starting quarterback Marcus Mariota. Cassel made a number of errant throws, routinely missing his target or having to throw it away as nobody could get open. Cassel threw a nice deep ball to Delanie Walker late in the first quarter, but what would have been a 59-yard touchdown was called back due to an offensive pass interference penalty. Two plays later on that same drive, the officials made a very questionable call that Cassel fumbled instead of throwing an incomplete pass, resulting in a Dolphins touchdown. than positive in the first half. Cassel showed great control on a floater to tight end Phillip Supernaw midway through the third quarter for his first and only touchdown of the day. The Titans offensive line struggled to protect Cassel as he was sacked six times, with one of those sacks nearly resulting in a safety. Left tackle Taylor Lewan left in the first quarter with a knee injury. He returned in the second quarter but sat out the rest of the game after halftime.

2017 Week 4 vs HOU (4 / 10 / 21 / 0 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Matt Cassel came in for the injured Marcus Mariota midway through the third quarter. Cassel looked abysmal as he threw interceptions on back to back drives while also getting sacked twice and losing a fumble in his 1.5 quarters of play. He amassed only 21 passing yards and finished with a 0.2 quarterback rating. Should Mariota miss time, all weapons in this offense will certainly take a drop in value.
