Week 8: at Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Andrew Luck has thrown for 312 yards or more in six out of seven games this year, and has at least two TDs in six out of seven games (with three or more in four of seven). Start him every week and smile. T.Y. Hilton has gone crazy over the past two weeks, with nine targets for 7/107/0 receiving vs. Cincinnati last week and nine for 9/223/1 receiving at Houston two weeks ago. Dwayne Allen has three catches per game over the past two contests (six for 3/52/1 last week; seven for 3/49/0 two weeks back) and is getting enough opportunities to post even more production. Ahmad Bradshaw has caught a TD in each of the last two games (six for 3/25/1 two weeks ago and three for 3/36/1 last week). Reggie Wayne has hit a dry page (eight for 4/15/0 vs. Cincinnati last week; nine for 4/35/0 at Houston two weeks ago), but otherwise the Colts' passing attack is going great guns entering week 8. The Steelers' pass D is ranked 13th in the NFL averaging 230.9 net yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given out vs. four interceptions (tied for 18th in the NFL) and 10 sacks (tied for 23rd) generated to date. Ryan Fitzpatrick hit them for 21/32 yielding 261 net passing yards, two TDs and one interception last week (with one sack taken for -1 yard), while Brian Hoyer was also sacked just once for -7 yards two weeks back (8/17 for 210 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions). An outstanding passing attack takes on a so-so pass D in this one - advantage, Indianapolis.
