Week 6: vs Indianapolis Colts

All TE vs IND

FBG says: Great matchup. Gradually, Sam Darnold is showing improvement, and his Week 5 romp over the Broncos has served as his best and most impactful pro game thus far. Darnold certainly wasn't efficient last Sunday, completing just 10 his 22 throws. In fact, he's hit on just 48% of his passes over his last 3 games, a Blaine Gabbert-esque number that simply has to improve. But against Denver, Darnold was finally able to get his deep threats involved in the game plan. He used his powerful arm to throw Robby Anderson open into two long scores last week, with fantastic ball placement into Anderson's hands in stride. Ultimately, though, Darnold is still immersed in growing pains. Both of last week's long throws to Anderson were through beaten, isolation coverage without any safety help. When asked to make tough downfield throws, Darnold still comes off wild and scattershot, and he's only producing minimally in the short game. There will be situational blow-ups like last week's, but on the whole, Darnold remains a low-volume, low-impact passer in a ho-hum offense, and not a fantasy option outside of two-quarterback leagues. As a result, none of his weapons can be trusted for fantasy purposes, either. There's still no reason whatsoever to fear the Colts pass defense. In fact, it's one of fantasy football's most inviting. Quarterbacks are completing 71% of throws against them, and both inside and outside receivers are feasting on their lack of secondary talent. Cornerback Pierre Desir is passable, but the rest of the unit is full of leaks. It's shallow, too, especially if starters Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore remain out. Allowing 2017 breakout Rashaan Melvin to leave town after his injury hasn't proven wise. And up front, the inconsistent pass rush hurts the secondary even further. Opposing pass games are able to pick their spots and attack this defense either underneath or downfield - or both, as we saw Thursday night.
