Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Nyheim Hines RB IND HOU START Houston is the 9th easiest matchup for RBs. With Marlon Mack out, there's some confusion on if Jonathan Williams or Jordan Wilkins will be the primary beneficiary. Regardless, Hines should dominate the passing game action. Indiana has averaged 6 targets per game to the RBs. Williams has 1 and Wilkins has 5. Together, they average less than 1 per game. Hines is likely to see 5 or more targets.
Jacoby Brissett QB IND HOU START Brissett has struggled recently, but Houston has yielded the third most points to opposing QBs so this is a matchup he should be able to exploit.
Carlos Hyde RB HOU IND SIT Hyde has had a productive season this year. Indy is a tough defense against oppposing RBs and more generous in the passing to running backs. This feels like more of a Duke Johnson script.
