Week 3: vs Atlanta Falcons - $5200

All QB vs ATL

FBG says: Good matchup. Jacoby Brissett has led an inconsistent Colts passing offense by racking up five passing touchdowns despite posting passing yard totals of just 190 and 146 yards in his first two games. This Colts offense is leaning heavily on their ground game, which will continue to limit the volume for a Brissett-led passing offense. Brissett has been effective from short range, but he has missed some opportunities downfield while struggling with his intermediate-to-deep ball accuracy. T.Y. Hilton has been just fine with Brissett under center though, as Hilton has been the recipient of three of those five passing touchdowns while leading the team in targets with triple the looks of any other Colts wide receiver. Eric Ebron has played about 25 percent fewer snaps than Jack Doyle in each of the first two games, but he has seen a red-zone look in both games and converted one for a touchdown last week. Both tight ends have seen limited opportunities to start the season, and there is little reason to believe their volume will spike. Atlanta's defense looked very sharp against the Eagles last week as they rattled Carson Wentz for three sacks while picking him off twice. Falcons pass rushers were strong as their defensive end duo of Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley Jr. got to the Eagles quarterback five times with Beasley registering one sack--an impressive feat against the stout Eagles offensive line. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett has had an impressive start to the season as well, notching a sack in each outing as he has dominated his matchup in back-to-back weeks. Despite this success, however, the Colts have a very strong offensive line that should have a good shot at withstanding this pressure to give Brissett adequate time. Colts receivers should be expected to have a tough time though, as the Falcons secondary has a ton of talent both at cornerback and safety. T.Y. Hilton will see plenty of coverage from Desmond Trufant on the outside, however, he should have the opportunity for a mismatch when lined up in the slot. Slot cornerbacks for the Falcons have given up a touchdown to opposing slot receivers in back-to-back weeks.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs TEN (17 / 28 / 146 / 3 / 1 pass, 7 / 25 / 0 rush - 18.34 points, $5000)

Jacoby Brissett did not play well against the Titans. Brissett struggled to complete passes downfield, seemed distracted by the pass rush at times, had a couple of ugly turnovers, and missed a few easy throws but still did enough to win. The run game struggled for periods of time against the Titans forcing Brissett to throw on 3rd downs with mostly poor results. Brissett took the Colts down the field for a touchdown on their opening possession. Brissett connected with tight ends 3 times on the drive. The biggest play was a 46 yard pass interference penalty drawn by Deon Cain. Brissett capped the drive with a 3 yard touchdown on a shovel pass to Eric Ebron. After a failed possession Brissett again let the Colts down the field. Brissett scrambled away from 3 defenders and converted a 3rd and 7 with his legs to keep the drive alive. Brissett then converted a 3rd and 15 with a 19 yard strike to TY Hilton. Brissett capped the drive with a nice 15 yard touch pass to Parris Campbell for a touchdown. On the Colts ensuing possession Brissett was intercepted by Logan Ryan targeting Hilton. The pass was behind Hilton who had very little separation on a crossing route. The Colts moved the ball into Titans' territory but Brissett again turned the ball over. Brissett attempted to pump fake and fumbled the ball backwards. Brissett was nearly intercepted on his next pass attempt. After a long running play by Jordan WIlkins put the Colts in the red zone, Brissett punctuated the drive with a nice throw to TY Hilton for a 4 yard touchdown on a fade route. Brissett showed good touch and accuracy on the throw.

2019 Week 1 vs LAC (21 / 27 / 190 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 9 / 0 rush - 16.5 points, $5300)

Jacoby Brissett played well enough for the Colts to win but wasn't great. Brissett struggled with pressure as he is somewhat stationary in the pocket and his accuracy was inconsistent at times. Brissett played well when the Colts were able to stay ahead on the down and distance especially with the run game. Brissett moved the Colts down the field for a touchdown on a methodical drive. The drive consisted of running plays and short passes. Brissett capped the drive with a nice throw on a slant to TY Hilton for a 4 yard touchdown. Brissett moved the Colts into field goal range with a nice drive before halftime featuring completions to Deon Cain and Devin Funchess but Adam Vinatieri missed the field goal. Following a muffed punt the Colts were unable to secure any points. Eric Ebron dropped what should have been an 11 yard touchdown and then Vinatieri missed another field goal. Trailing by 8 with 8 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter the Colts got the ball back. Brissett connected with TY Hilton twice for big plays on the drive. The first was a 19 yard over the middle. The second was a shallow cross that Hilton took to the end zone for a 19 yard touchdown. A two point conversion from Mack sent the game to overtime but the Colts did not get a possession in overtime because the Chargers scored a touchdown on their drive.
