Week 7: at Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Deshaun Watson led this Texans passing offense to a dynamic victory over the Chiefs last week. Watson finished with 280 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in addition to a couple of rushing touchdowns. It helped for the ground game to have been so strong last week, but Watson has been making clutch plays for most of this season as he has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes while averaging just over eight yards per pass attempt--both above-average marks. His receivers had a rough game last week though, as DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller both dropped at least one sure-thing touchdown reception. Hopkins remains the go-to option for this offense, but his on-field production has not matched the high volume of targets as he has yet to score a touchdown or eclipse 100 yards since Week 1. Fuller came back to earth last week with just 44 yards from five receptions after his explosion of a game in Week 5. He had three very disappointing drops last week though, two of which could have been touchdowns--so look for Fuller to remain a big part of this offense. With Kenny Stills remaining sidelined, Keke Coutee and the Texans tight ends have been much more involved in the offense. If Stills can suit up this week, look for that target volume to tight ends to slightly decrease while Coutee's role may become diminished. The Colts defense, coming off a bye in Week 6, had a very strong showing against the Chiefs in Week 5. The defensive line played well while the Colts secondary did just enough to limit the Chiefs to a single passing touchdown. This last game was actually the best this Colts front seven has played on the year in terms of the pass rush, as they actually rank near the bottom of the league in pressure generated. The secondary consists of decent pieces, but they lack a clear playmaker beyond linebacker Darius Leonard, who has been battling a concussion in recent weeks but plans to return after the bye last week. While Leonard can help keep the Texans running backs in check, DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller should both have advantages on the outside. Tight end Darren Fells is also a name to watch this week as he finds himself in a very favorable matchup with the Colts giving up the third-most fantasy points per game (PPR scoring) to tight ends, with that scoring coming on a very consistent basis a team's top tight end has finished with three or more receptions for 50 or more yards in three of five games this season. Fells was a former basketball player and has a huge size advantage over any of these Colts defenders who would be covering him in the red zone.
