Week 3: vs Cleveland Browns

All QB vs CLE

FBG says: Good matchup. The Colts shifted to Jacoby Brissett this past week after benching starter Scott Tolzien. Brissett will once again start in this upcoming week as Andrew Luck is still not practicing with a shoulder injury. Brissett paired with Jack Doyle connecting on eight of eight targets in this game. Brissett was not overly effective in this game outside of connecting with Doyle as Donte Moncrief saw eight targets while only catching two passes and Kamar Aiken saw nine targets while only catching three of them. The Browns lost Jamie Collins last week to a concussion and while Collins has not been overly effective this season in run coverage, he has been by far the best coverage linebacker for the Browns who have already struggled with covering the tight end in coverage as the Ravens tight ends had 12 receptions for 112 yards last week against the Browns. The Browns secondary has been led by Jason McCourty Briean Boddy-Calhoun both who have been great so far. Boddy-Calhoun has primarily been working out of the slot, while McCourty has been lined up primarily on the right side of the field this year. The one weakness in the secondary is Jamar Taylor on the left side of the field who will be going up against a mixture of Moncrief and Hilton as the Colts rotate their receivers around the field.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 1 vs LAR (9 / 18 / 128 / 0 / 2 pass, 2 / 2 / 0 rush)

Scott Tolzien's first throw was to TY Hilton who was blanketed by Trumaine Johnson. Johnson undercut the pass and returned the interception 39 yards for a touchdown. The pocket was collapsing around Tolzien when he threw but Hilton was never open. Tolzien was able to orchestrate some successful offense. Tolzien completed passes of 21, 20, 21, 10 and 16 before missing Kamar Aiken downfield for a potential big third down conversion. Tolzien was able to make a few plays but could not find consistency and he did not receive much help from his team. Tolzien was sacked on the Colts next two possessions forcing the Colts into difficult down and distances the offense could not overcome. Tolzien's second half included the same mistakes and failures as the first half without the positive plays. The Colts first 4 possessions of the 2nd half totaled -1 yards, 2 sacks and a pick six. Tolzien tried to find TY Hilton in the flat but was undercut by Lamarcus Joyner who intercepted the pass and returned it 29 yards for a touchdown. Tolzien was replaced by Jacoby Brissett.

Colts | Indianapolis QBs splitting reps (Wed Sep 13, 01:24 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QBs Jacoby Brissett and Scott Tolzien will share first-team reps this week until head coach Chuck Pagano named a starter for Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to downgrade Colts skill position players, no matter who starts at quarterback. We'd like to see Brissett get the nod just to see how he looks as the lead QB entering a game. Brissett came in for an ineffective (duh) Scott Tolzien in Week 1.
