Houston Texans
vs
Indianapolis Colts
Reliant Stadium | Sunday, Nov. 03 | 08:30 PM EST (NBC)

Indianapolis Colts

    1. Andrew Luck
    2. Andrew
      Luck
      QB
    3. PASS YDS236
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS28
    7. RUSH TD1

    The onus will be on Andrew Luck to keep this offense going with Reggie Wayne out for the season. The Texans have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

    1. Trent Richardson
    2. Trent
      Richardson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS47
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Richardson has been a disaster since moving over to Indianapolis. Houston presents a decent matchup, as the Texans have allowed 17.8 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.

    1. T.Y. Hilton
    2. T.Y.
      Hilton
      WR
    3. REC YDS107
    4. REC TD1

    Hilton's owners are the big winners in the fallout from Reggie Wayne's injury. He shoud see a ton of targets the rest of the year.

    1. Darrius Heyward-Bey
    2. Darrius
      Heyward-Bey
      WR
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

    Heyward-Bey is worth adding with Reggie Wayne out for the year, but he should be on your bench this week.

    1. Coby Fleener
    2. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    3. REC YDS72
    4. REC TD1

    Fleener could play a bigger role in the offense with Reggie Wayne out for the year. It will be interesting to see how many targets he gets on Sunday.

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

    If the Colts offense struggles without Reggie Wayne, Vinatieri's owners could benefit.

    1. Indianapolis Colts
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    Case Keenum played well in his first career start two weeks ago. The Colts should not be considered a stream option this week unless the Texans start a running back other than Arian Foster or Ben Tate.

Houston Texans

    1. Case Keenum
    2. Case
      Keenum
      QB
    3. PASS YDS291
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Keenum played well in his first career start two weeks ago, throwing for 271 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs. He could be a QB2 this week.

    1. Arian Foster
    2. Arian
      Foster
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS88
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS30
    6. REC TD0

    Foster had to leave Houston's last game because of a hamstring injury. The Texans say he will be a gametime decision for the Sunday nighter.

    1. Andre Johnson
    2. Andre
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS111
    4. REC TD1

    Johnson's owners had to breathe a sigh of relief when Case Keenum played well in his first career start. Start him as usual this week.

    1. DeAndre Hopkins
    2. DeAndre
      Hopkins
      WR
    3. REC YDS90
    4. REC TD0

    The Colts have allowed the 14th most fantasy points per game to receivers this season. The bet here is that Andre Johnson can better take advantage.

    1. Garrett Graham
    2. Garrett
      Graham
      TE
    3. REC YDS37
    4. REC TD0

    Graham still holds down the starting job in Houston, but you should be able to do better at the position.

    1. Randy Bullock
    2. Randy
      Bullock
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Bullock has quite simply been bad this year, going just 12-for-17 on field goals and not making one from beyond 50 yards.

    1. Houston Texans
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    Even without Reggie Wayne, the Colts present some challenges for the Texans. Stay away.
