Week 3: at Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Philip Rivers mowed down the Jaguars with 17/24 for 220 yards passing, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown last week - Travis Benjamin came into his own as the lead receiver for San Diego (six targets for 6/115/2) ably helped out by Tyrell Williams (six for 3/61/1) and Antonio Gates (five for 3/15/1). So far this season Rivers has thrown 42/60 for 463 yards, five TDs and zero interceptions to land at 12th-best fantasy quarterback in the land, despite losing his top receiver, Keenan Allen, in the first game of the season. The Colts are racing the Chargers' defense to the bottom of the league in passing yards allowed per game - right now Indianapolis is 25th in the NFL averaging 299.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with three passing scores given out vs. one interception (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and a (tied for) next-to-last total of two sacks generated so far. They have averaged 21.3 fantasy points per game allowed to opposing quarterbacks (14th-most in the NFL), with 17.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (tied for seventh-least in the NFL); and 7.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (13th in the NFL). This is a nice matchup for the red-hot Rivers and his new cast of receivers. The rushing matchup is also really favorable, so it is likely we see a balanced approach from the Chargers - not really a set up for 350+ passing yards (although still possible against the weak Indianapolis pass D).
