Indianapolis Colts
vs
Denver Broncos
Lucas Oil Stadium | Sunday, Oct. 20 | 08:30 PM EST (NBC)

Denver Broncos

    1. Peyton Manning
    2. Peyton
      Manning
      QB
    3. PASS YDS384
    4. PASS TD4
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    If anyone could treat a game against the team for which he played for 13 years as just another game, it's Manning. Something tells me he might have a little something extra, though.

    1. Knowshon Moreno
    2. Knowshon
      Moreno
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS93
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS26
    6. REC TD0

    Moreno had a huge game against the Jaguars, racking up 104 total yards and three scores. The Colts have allowed the third most fantasy points per game to running backs this year.

    1. Montee Ball
    2. Montee
      Ball
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS24
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS7
    6. REC TD0

    Ball has just four carries the last two weeks combined. You should feel comfortable cutting bait.

    1. Ronnie Hillman
    2. Ronnie
      Hillman
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS23
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS8
    6. REC TD0

    Hillman had just six touches last week, and he won't be a guy you can start unless Knowshon Moreno gets hurt.

    1. Demaryius Thomas
    2. Demaryius
      Thomas
      WR
    3. REC YDS101
    4. REC TD1

    Thomas had three receptions for 78 yards last week, giving him two straight games without a TD. That streak will end this week.

    1. Eric Decker
    2. Eric
      Decker
      WR
    3. REC YDS97
    4. REC TD1

    Decker caught five passes for 50 yards, but this will be a huge game for everyone involved in the Denver passing game.

    1. Wes Welker
    2. Wes
      Welker
      WR
    3. REC YDS83
    4. REC TD1

    Welker caught six of his eight targets for 63 yards and a score last week. The Colts have done well against the pass this year, but then again they've yet to play the Broncos.

    1. Julius Thomas
    2. Julius
      Thomas
      TE
    3. REC YDS60
    4. REC TD1

    Thomas had just 22 yards last week, but he managed to find the end zone. He should be started with confidence this week.

    1. Matt Prater
    2. Matt
      Prater
      K
    3. PAT5
    4. FG2

    Prater didn't have a field goal attempt last week, but if you own him you're starting him.

    1. Denver Broncos
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Broncos didn't really take advantage of the Jaguars, forcing two turnovers and sacking Chad Henne twice. They get linebacker Von Miller back this week.

Indianapolis Colts

    1. Andrew Luck
    2. Andrew
      Luck
      QB
    3. PASS YDS268
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS11
    7. RUSH TD0

    His receivers dropped a ton of passes as Luck threw for just 202 yards and an interception in San Diego last week. He should bounce back against a Denver defense that surrenders 21.2 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

    1. Trent Richardson
    2. Trent
      Richardson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS58
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Richardson ran for just 40 yards on 10 carries last week, and has been one of the biggest fantasy busts this year. Denver has given up just 3.2 yards per carry through six weeks.

    1. Reggie Wayne
    2. Reggie
      Wayne
      WR
    3. REC YDS108
    4. REC TD1

    Wayne had five receptions for 88 yards last week, becoming the ninth player in NFL history with at least 1,000 career catches. He'll have a big game against the Broncos.

    1. T.Y. Hilton
    2. T.Y.
      Hilton
      WR
    3. REC YDS73
    4. REC TD1

    Hilton caught five passes for 43 yards last week, his fourth dud of the season. Luck should have to throw a ton this week, but it's getting hard to trust Hilton.

    1. Coby Fleener
    2. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    3. REC YDS64
    4. REC TD0

    Fleener caught three passes for 16 yards last week and had a killer drop. He's failing to take advantage of the opportunity presented by Dwayne Allen's injury.

    1. Adam Vinatieri
    2. Adam
      Vinatieri
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Vinatieri went 3-for-3 on field goals last week, including two from at least 50 yards. He's set up well to be a top-12 kicker.

    1. Indianapolis Colts
    2. PTS ALLOWED41
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    You'd only consider the Colts in a very good matchup. This is not a good matchup.
