Optimal Lineup

– Captain: T.Y. Hilton ($16,500) – Andrew Luck ($11,400) – Corey Davis ($7,800) – Taywan Taylor ($5,400) – Nyheim Hines ($4,800) – Adam Vinatieri ($3,400) There are a variety of ways to approach the optimal lineup, but also unique approaches to take in order to be different than the field. Although Derrick Henry has an elevated price due to his impressive recent stretch, I still think he's going to have decent ownership. In turn, not using him in the optimal creates a different approach. Each lineup created typically has some focus on a certain game flow while also covering on some level in case that game flow doesn't completely go as planned. In this one, I'm pegging the Colts to put points on the board and likely force the Titans to play catch-up a bit. Obviously, with the Titans at home in a crucial game, this could go a variety of ways, but this is one approach. With that focus, stacking Andrew Luck with T.Y. Hilton provides the high-upside pairing. Although the Titans have been good against opposing quarterbacks, Luck has been incredibly good this year with the exception of a few games. Over the first 15 games, the Colts signal-caller has thrown two or more touchdowns 12 times. He's also reeled off three or more on eight occasions. As for Hilton, he has an appealing matchup and has a chance to be the highest-scoring player on the slate. The Titans pass defense isn't horrible by any means, but they have allowed 2,489 yards and 18 touchdowns on 192 receptions this year to opposing wide receivers. To finish off the Colts side, I opted to go with Nyheim Hines, who I believe will have a fair amount of ownership, but nothing over the top. The team's backup running back will get the bulk of the pass-catching work and see touches regardless of game flow. But if for some reason the Colts don't get a lead, Hines could see an expanded workload which is nice as he's seen 25 targets in the past four games.

Titans Wide Receiver Pairing

On the Titans side, there's exposure to be had in a few places, and while I'm somewhat bullish on the matchup against a solid Colts secondary, if they're playing from behind it won't matter. I don't trust Blaine Gabbert very much, but of the 72 passes he's thrown this season, a decent number of them have gone to Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. Specifically, Davis has seen 17 targets from Gabbert while Taylor has picked up seven. With both players locked into large workloads, they'll provide a solid floor. The upside for both is certainly apparent as well, considering Davis is the clear-cut top target and Taylor had six catches three weeks ago and topped 100 yards the week prior. There's some risk with the Titans side of the ball and specifically their passing game. The Colts have allowed just 1,920 yards and 13 touchdowns to opposing wideouts. Those numbers aren't off-the-walls incredible but are still worth mentioning. Next up is the 150-max lineup which offers a mixture of high upside plays and some risk as well.

The Indianapolis Colts (6-6) were the second hottest team in the NFL until they were cooled off last week by, of all teams, their lowly divisional rivals… the Jacksonville Jaguars, who avoided an eighth straight loss.

Deshaun Watson and the first-place Houston Texans (9-3) prepare to host Andrew Luck and company in an AFC South showdown at NRG Stadium as Week 14 action continues on Sunday afternoon.

Preview

The Colts were only the second hottest team in the NFL… because the Texans were the first, and still are No. 1. Houston has won nine straight games dating back to September.

Luck and the rest of the offense look to put last week’s disappointing and shocking shutout team loss in the rearview mirror.

“Obviously we struggled and struggled a lot, but you learn from every game. There is sort of the emotional part of a game and you go through that cycle — sort of directly (after) the game. But you wake up the next morning and you sort of put the emotions aside, the result aside and you look at the cycle of play.”

T.Y. Hilton is a game-time decision with a shoulder injury, although Colts head coach Frank Reich is optimistic he will be able to play. Eric Ebron (back) has been cleared to play.

Both offenses are putting up roughly the same amount of yards. The Colts average 387.1 total yards per game, while the Texans average 393.3.
