From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 15): Peterman could be the starter in a good matchup at Indianapolis this week, and he made a game-tying touchdown pass before his game-losing pick six. He could help during the bye week gauntlet in 2QB/Superflex leagues if Josh Allen is out for a while.

Week 7: at Indianapolis Colts

All QB vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. It's been years since the NFL has seen anything as toothless as this Bills pass game. They've somehow thrown just 3 touchdowns over 6 games, and their leading receiver (Zay Jones) is on pace for all of 531 yards. It says something that an injury to the rookie quarterback who's completing 54% of his throws threatens to push them even lower. Josh Allen has been ruled out this week, and the Bills have named Derek Anderson the starter over Nathan Peterman. Peterman has been the worst passer in football over the last 2 years, Peterman has posted a 29.9 rating on the NFL level. Derek Anderson who is a veteran should be able to at least keep an offense afloat. He won't have dynamic targets to throw to, though, or a line to keep him clean. Regardless of the quarterback, there's no part of this pass game that approaches fantasy relevance. The Colts still field one of the NFL's worst pass defenses, and therefore one of fantasy's tastiest matchups. Through 6 weeks they're giving up 298 yards per game, with 4 of their opponents throwing multiple touchdowns. Not to knock Jets rookie Sam Darnold, who's looked improved of late, but it was disconcerting to see him shred this group so badly last Sunday. The pass rush has been surprisingly strong, but the mix-and-match cornerbacks are poor in coverage, even on shorter routes. Darnold wasn't the first quarterback to beat this secondary repeatedly on slants and timing routes just inside the secondary. All told, opposing quarterbacks are completing a whopping 71% of their throws in this matchup, and they're getting solid impact out of it. Fantasy players should welcome this matchup.

Nathan Peterman came into the game against Houston after Josh Allen suffered an elbow injury. He was disastrous, throwing two interceptions, including a pick 6 that gave Houston the win. The other interception officially ended the game was a throw back across his body that got deflected into the air for an easy interception. Peterman did manage a touchdown to Zay Jones in the end zone on a well run double move. Peterman has thrown 9 interception on 79 career passes.

2018 Week 1 vs BAL (5 / 18 / 24 / 0 / 2 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Peterman was inaccurate, missing several throws wildly and led an offense that did not gain a first down in the first half. Peterman was replaced by Josh Allen in the second half after throwing his second interception. Peterman threw for 1.3 yard per attempt prior to leaving the game and finished with a quarterback rating of 0.0.
