Week 12: vs Indianapolis Colts - $4500

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Houston's passing offense had quite the forgettable game last week as Deshaun Watson finished with one of the worst games of his career while suffering an ankle injury in the process. Watson didn't miss any time in last week's game and is expected to suit up this week, but he certainly appeared to be injured and could be limited coming off the short week in this Thursday's game. Watson had an up and down game against the Colts back in Week 7, forced into two interceptions while the Colts limited mostly to underneath routes. That Week 7 outing against the Colts was the start of a relative resurgence from DeAndre Hopkins, who had a pretty slow start to the season. Since Week 7, Hopkins has averaged86.5 receiving yards per game with two touchdowns and double-digit targets in all four games. Kenny Stills had his best game of the season against the Colts with 105 receiving yards, but he has been relatively quiet since then despite what should have been increased opportunities with Will Fuller sidelined. Fuller remains questionable coming into this week's game, but it would be tough to trust him even if he does suit up. The Colts defense has fared pretty well in recent weeks, giving up the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks since the last time they faced this Texans offense in Week 7. They have received the benefit of facing some very poor passing offenses over that span though, but this group took advantage of it with five interceptions over those past five games--including two against Watson in Week 7. Justin Houston has been spectacular on the defensive line, accounting for at least one sack in each of his last six outings. However, the Colts front seven as a unit has not managed to apply consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks this season, ranking near the bottom of the league in pressure percentage (9%) while amassing just a league-average 25 sacks. The secondary lacks standout playmakers, but they have done a relatively good job as a unit against opposing wide receivers. DeAndre Hopkins has the talent to overcome any individual matchup he should see this week, but the rest of the Texans pass-catchers could struggle against the Colts.
