TE Jack Doyle - Indianapolis Colts
|6-5, 254||Born: 5-5-1990||College: Western Kentucky||Drafted: ---|
Week 15: at New Orleans Saints - $4500
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Jacoby Brissett delivered in a sweet spot matchup last week against the Buccaneers, bouncing back relatively well from an unfortunate string of poor performances throughout the second half of the season. Brissett managed to throw for just two touchdowns in the five games leading up to last week when he passed for two touchdowns and 251 yards. However, Brissett did miss on quite a few throws as he completed just 52.8 percent of his passes in last week's game. He showed a nice deep ball connection with receiver Marcus Johnson, who has now seen six and seven targets for 55 and 105 yards in his past two games. The slew of injuries to Colts wide receivers has afforded guys like Johnson an opportunity to step up, but it also has contributed to the lack of consistency displayed from this passing offense as a whole. T.Y. Hilton is rehabbing towards a potential return this season, but it is unlikely to be this week. This should set up Zach Pascal and Jack Doyle as the top options for Brissett yet again. The Colts also reunited with Dontrell Inman this week, but it would be hard to expect much from him with just a few days back on the team. The Saints defense has been mediocre against the pass on paper this season, but that is primarily due to how well this team as a whole has played to force opposing offenses into pass-heavy game scripts. This New Orleans team has some solid contributors on defense, starting with a fearsome defensive line that ranks tied for fourth in the league with 43 sacks. Edge rusher Cameron Jordan leads the way here, ranking third in the league with 13.5 sacks. The combination of Jordan and Marcus Davenport will be one of the toughest challenges faced by these top-tier Colts offensive tackles, but even with as strong as the Saints defensive line is, they still project to be a relatively even matchup for the equally-elite Colts offensive line. In the secondary, the Saints have one of the best safeties in football with Marcus Williams over the top. Williams has been an excellent asset to help what has, at times, been a middling cornerback group. Marcus Lattimore has elite talent, but he has taken a step back this year after his breakout 2017 campaign. Still, Lattimore will offer a difficult matchup for Zach Pascal in shadow coverage this week. Tight ends have actually got the best of this defense in recent weeks, as an opposing tight end has exceeded 40 receiving yards or scored a touchdown in six straight games--a great stat for the likes of Jack Doyle coming into a game that should afford him plenty of volume.
