Week 15: at Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Great matchup. Trevor Siemian remains, in essence, an NFL QB2. He's proven time and again that he lacks the tools and mechanics to lead an offense effectively, and in 2017 he's reached new lows, "boasting" an anemic 4.48 adjusted net yards per attempt (factoring in touchdowns, interceptions, and sacks). That's "good" for 31st among regular 2017 starters - lower than Mitchell Trubisky, Brian Hoyer, and C.J. Beathard. But he's the preferred option to Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler, so he'll have the reins for the foreseeable future. That's frightening for the Broncos - Siemian is somehow both a low-impact thrower and a turnover machine - but if nothing else, he's at least willing to feed the Broncos' ball-dominant starting wideouts relentlessly. Last week he sent 12 targets to Demaryius Thomas (for 93 yards and 1 touchdown), and he's always involved Emmanuel Sanders in the past. Those two consistently boast fantasy WR3 consideration at worst due to their volume outlooks, but their upsides are capped tightly by Siemian's rough play. The Colts pass defense continues to sink to the league's absolute bottom. Besieged all year by injuries and poor play, they've allowed more net yards per attempt (which factors in sacks) than anyone in football. If the Bills employed a starting-caliber quarterback and even fairly dynamic receivers last week (and thrown more than 16 passes), they certainly would've topped their 92-yard Week 14 total. We've seen that, of course, as they've been throttled by most opposing passers, including the likes of Brian Hoyer and Blake Bortles (twice). As a result, we've seen a whopping 17 players record 60+ receiving yards against the Colts thus far. With breakout cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Pierre Desir lost to injury and little pass rush to speak of, it's hard to imagine they'll turn things around against Broncos starters Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
