Week 14: at Buffalo Bills

All TE vs BUF

FBG says: Good matchup. Jacoby Brissett has fared better than virtually anyone expected upon his Week 2 insertion into the lineup. He's generated 6.8 adjusted yards per attempt, which factors in touchdowns and interceptions - not a great mark, but a better one than Cam Newton or Marcus Mariota has posted. Still, Brissett simply isn't much to look at as a passer, and the team isn't putting much on his plate. He's averaging just 32.4 attempts per start, with just 226.3 yards and a 2.8% touchdown rate (29th among the season's regular starters). With Donte Moncrief falling off the face of the earth and T.Y. Hilton routinely bracketed by downfield coverage, Brissett projects weekly to a ho-hum ceiling; on weeks he doesn't run for a touchdown, he routinely finishes on the mid-to-low end of the QB2 scale. As a result, we can never outright project this passing game to anything explosive or even dependable. The Buffalo pass defense remains the team's only saving grace - and it's an inconsistent one. This unit is generally limiting opposing pass games, allowing the seventh-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks. But they're thoroughly targetable for opposing WR1s. Over their last 8 games, they've allowed 83-189 yards to each of A.J. Green, Mike Evans, Michael Crabtree, Michael Thomas, and Keenan Allen, with 6 touchdowns by wideouts along the way. The young cornerbacks are losing a lot of their gambles, and the pass rush isn't dissuading anyone from testing them deep. This looks like a great spot to target the Colts' downfield players while remaining cautious in expecting all-over-the-field fireworks.
