Week 12: at Indianapolis Colts

All TE 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 (5 / 5 / 21 / 0 rec)

Jonnu Smith led the team in receptions as he hauled in all five of his targets for a meager total of 21 yards. Smith was commonly left uncovered as the Dolphins focused on more notable pass-catchers, leaving him as an easy option for Cassel to find for easy completions. Smith was called for a questionable pass interference penalty that cost Delanie Walker a big touchdown pass early in this game.

2017 Week 3 vs SEA (2 / 1 / 24 / 1 rec)

Jonnu Smith found the end zone again this week, scoring his second touchdown of the season and third of his career. The touchdown came on Smith's only reception of the game. Smith was lined up at fullback for the first time in the game, completely fooling the Seahawks defense by sneaking out to the flats on the right side for a wide open 24-yard touchdown reception to cap the Titans second touchdown drive of the game. Smith was only targeted twice and did not run many routes at all compared to snaps on which he was in a pure blocking role.

2017 Week 2 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 30 / 1 rec)

Rookie tight end Jonnu Smith hauled in his first two career receptions here, each of which yielded polar opposite results. Smith's first career reception went for negative yards as he was stuffed at the line of scrimmage. His second reception, however, was a very successful screen that allowed Smith to show his speed and burst for 32 yards, weaving between blockers, for his first career touchdown and Mariota's only passing touchdown of the day. Smith does not see much playing time, and should not be expected to when playing behind Delanie Walker.
