Funchess broke his collarbone in the Week 1 game and has gone on injured reserve

Week 3: vs Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

FBG says: Good matchup. Jacoby Brissett has led an inconsistent Colts passing offense by racking up five passing touchdowns despite posting passing yard totals of just 190 and 146 yards in his first two games. This Colts offense is leaning heavily on their ground game, which will continue to limit the volume for a Brissett-led passing offense. Brissett has been effective from short range, but he has missed some opportunities downfield while struggling with his intermediate-to-deep ball accuracy. T.Y. Hilton has been just fine with Brissett under center though, as Hilton has been the recipient of three of those five passing touchdowns while leading the team in targets with triple the looks of any other Colts wide receiver. Eric Ebron has played about 25 percent fewer snaps than Jack Doyle in each of the first two games, but he has seen a red-zone look in both games and converted one for a touchdown last week. Both tight ends have seen limited opportunities to start the season, and there is little reason to believe their volume will spike. Atlanta's defense looked very sharp against the Eagles last week as they rattled Carson Wentz for three sacks while picking him off twice. Falcons pass rushers were strong as their defensive end duo of Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley Jr. got to the Eagles quarterback five times with Beasley registering one sack--an impressive feat against the stout Eagles offensive line. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett has had an impressive start to the season as well, notching a sack in each outing as he has dominated his matchup in back-to-back weeks. Despite this success, however, the Colts have a very strong offensive line that should have a good shot at withstanding this pressure to give Brissett adequate time. Colts receivers should be expected to have a tough time though, as the Falcons secondary has a ton of talent both at cornerback and safety. T.Y. Hilton will see plenty of coverage from Desmond Trufant on the outside, however, he should have the opportunity for a mismatch when lined up in the slot. Slot cornerbacks for the Falcons have given up a touchdown to opposing slot receivers in back-to-back weeks.
