Lucas Oil Stadium | Sunday, October 10 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Colts 24, Chiefs 17
185 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 10 rush yards, 1 INTBefore his three-touchdown performance against the 49ers, Cassel was downright ugly in his first two starts. He may have to be on top of his game coming off the bye week if the Colts get out to a lead quickly and force Kansas City to throw.
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 70 rush yards, 1 rush TDIt's tough to argue with 8.5 yards per touch, but Thomas Jones still sees the majority of the carries making Charles somewhat risky. If he ever takes over the lion's share, Charles could become one of the elite backs in fantasy football.
60 rush yardsJones is not the explosive weapon that Jamaal Charles is, but he has a proven track record. Jones had 22 carries in Week 3 to 12 carries for Charles, establishing Jones as the top back for now. Both could have big days against the Colts defense.
4 rec, 45 yards, 1 TDBowe hasn't seen near the number of targets he has in the past, and with the run game working so well there isn't much upside. The silver lining here is that the Colts may make this game a shootout, forcing the Chiefs to throw.
4 rec, 40 yardsChambers is technically No. 2 on the depth chart, but the running game takes precedence in Kansas City and Tony Moeaki and Dexter McCluster are both emerging as reliable targets. Chambers looks like an odd man out for now.
3 rec, 25 yardsMcCluster saw an expanded role in Week 3, catching three passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. It'll be interesting to see how coaches utilize the versatile receiver, though his role in the offense is pretty limited for the time being.
3 rec, 20 yardsMoeaki is Matt Cassel's most-targeted option in the passing game as a rookie. Though the Chiefs' offense has admittedly been pretty stagnant through the air, Moeaki is a solid backup fantasy option, if not starter with bye weeks beginning.
2 PATs, 1 FGSuccop is 4-for-5 on field goals this season, all within 40 yards. The Chiefs offense simply doesn't move the ball well enough to make Succop a reliable fantasy option.
1 FumbleThe Chiefs' defense has been solid this season, but the Colts should provide plenty of headaches. It may be best to stay clear of Kansas City this week.
280 pass yards, 2 pass TDManning has thrown 11 touchdown passes on the year with just one interception. There are few more consistent fantasy starters in the league. That shouldn't change this week against the Chiefs.
4 rec, 30 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TDAddai enjoyed a nice game against a porous Jags' run defense, posting 63 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns. Teams haven't found a lot of running room against the Chiefs, however, so expect Addai to figure more into the passing game this week.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 30 rush yardsDouble check on his status of his hamstring this week, but even if healthy he is still behind Joseph Addai for carries. If he can't play this week, Mike Hart moves into the backup role.
7 rec, 85 yards, 1 TDWayne set a franchise record last week with 15 receptions while posting nearly 200 yards receiving. There is little question as to who is the primary focus of the Colts' passing game, making Wayne one of the more valuable receivers in fantasy football.
5 rec, 70 yardsCollie's five receptions last week were somewhat disappointing, but he found the end zone for a fourth straight week. As long as Pierre Garcon is out, there really is no competition for receptions outside of Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark.
2 rec, 35 yardsGarcon has been held out two straight weeks with a hamstring injury. Keep an eye on his status, but even if he does return against the Chiefs it's tough to imagine him completely unseating Austin Collie.
4 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDClark has now posted three touchdowns in four games, solidifying him as a solid source of scores as well as receptions. He should continue to see plenty of targets on a weekly basis.
3 PATs, 1 FGVinatieri has made all four of his field goal attempts this season, all within 40 yards. He has plenty of extra points however, with the Colts finding the end zone on a consistent basis.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleThe Colts are struggling to control the run game this season, and the Chiefs have one of the better ground games in the league. The Colts offense could help out the defense in a big way by scoring early and forcing the Chiefs to throw.
