Pick: Colts 20, Titans 17
Indianapolis Colts
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBKerry Collins
120 pass yards
Collins threw for 216 yards and a TD in Sunday's 31-14 win over Pittsburgh, which clinched home field advantage throughout the playoffs for the Titans. He will start, but look for Vince Young to see the majority of the playing time this week as the Titans rest their key starters. Look for Young to come into this game energized with something to prove.
RBChris Johnson
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yards
Johnson scored his ninth touchdown on the season last week against Pittsburgh on a key fourth down play that gave the Titans the lead for good over Pittsburgh. Johnson will likely start this week, but he won't play long as the Titans will rest their key starters, including this rookie.
RBLenDale White
60 rush yards, 1 rush TD
White gained 48 yards and scored his 15th rushing touchdown of the season in last week's 31-14 win over Pittsburgh. Look for White to carry much of the load this week as the Titans run out the season at Indianapolis.
WRJustin Gage
3 rec, 40 yards
Gage topped the 100-yard mark for the second time this season as he finished with five catches for 104 yards and a score last week vs. Pittsburgh. Gage caught a 34-yard TD pass from Kerry Collins in the first quarter, his sixth scoring strike of the year. Don't expect as much production this week, however, as most of the starters will be rested with nothing on the line.
WRBrandon Jones
2 rec, 20 yards
Jones didn't have a single catch in last week's win over Pittsburgh and isn't a recommended play this week as the Titans will give him as much time as possible to heal a nagging foot injury.
WRJustin McCareins
3 rec, 40 yards
McCareins still hasn't caught a TD pass this year, but he came up big last week against Pittsburgh with six catches for 55 yards. He will likely play the whole game this week at Indianapolis.
TEAlge Crumpler
3 rec, 30 yards
Crumpler had three catches for 30 yards last week against Pittsburgh and will likely play the entire game this week at Indianapolis.
KRob Bironas
2 PATs, 1 FG
Bironas scored seven points last week to give him 127 on the season. He's six points shy of the career high he set in 2007.
Defense
2 sacks
The Titans' defense won the matchup against Pittsburgh's defense last week, coming away with four turnovers and five sacks. This defense has been a fantasy wonder this year with 43 sacks and 42 forced turnovers.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBPeyton Manning
140 pass yards, 1 pass TD
Manning was at his best last Thursday at Jacksonville as he willed the Colts to that key win. He completed 29-of-34 passes for 364 yards and three TDs and he will get a well-deserved rest this week against the Titans. Manning will start to keep his consecutive games streak alive and likely play the first half, but he's not a recommended fantasy play for Week 17 with nothing on the line. Look for Jim Sorgi to see his first action of the season.
RBDominic Rhodes
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 30 rush yards
Rhodes hurt his ribs last week at Jacksonville and will see limited action this week against Tennessee. RB Joseph Addai also will not play this week as the Colts rest their starters.
WRReggie Wayne
3 rec, 45 yards, 1 TD
After failing to score in five straight games, Wayne finally got in the end zone last week at Jacksonville as he caught seven passes for 108 yards. It was his sixth TD catch of the season. Wayne was held to three catches for 29 yards in the Week 8 31-21 loss at Tennessee and likely won't play long this week as the Colts rest their key starters in the second half.
WRAnthony Gonzalez
5 rec, 50 yards
Gonzalez caught four passes for 38 yards last week at Jacksonville and should see more targets this week with Marvin Harrison likely sidelined.
TEDallas Clark
4 rec, 40 yards
Clark had a huge game in Thursday's 31-24 win at Jacksonville as he had right catches for 105 yards and a TD. It was his second straight 100-yard game and his third straight game with a TD catch. Clark will start this week, but likely won't play beyond the first half.
TEGijon Robinson
3 rec, 30 yards
Robinson should see more playing time this week as WR Marvin Harrison will likely be sidelined with a hamstring injury and TE Dallas Clark will only play a half as the Colts rest their key starters. He had four catches for 51 yards in last week's win at Jacksonville.
KAdam Vinatieri
2 PATs, 2 FGs
Vinatieri missed an easy chip shot last week at Jacksonville, but it didn't come back to haunt him as the Colts won 31-24. He needs eight points to reach 100 for the ninth straight season.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Colts' defense has been stellar this year with 27 sacks and 36 forced turnovers. The Colts have allowed only six passing TDs this year to go with 15 INTs.
