Indianapolis Colts

    1. Andrew Luck
    2. Andrew
      Luck
      QB
    3. PASS YDS256
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS27
    7. RUSH TD1

    Luck had a nice fantasy day thanks to a rushing touchdown. He had just 232 passing yards and zero scores through the air. The matchup with the Cardinals is neutral.

    1. Donald Brown
    2. Donald
      Brown
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS63
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS19
    6. REC TD0

    Brown likely wrested control of the running back job from Trent Richardson, running for 80 yards and two touchdowns last week. Consider him an RB3 against an Arizona defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. Trent Richardson
    2. Trent
      Richardson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS18
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Richardson ran for just 22 yards on eight carries last week and appears to have been passed by Donald Brown on the depth chart. He's the Bust of the Season for 2013.

    1. T.Y. Hilton
    2. T.Y.
      Hilton
      WR
    3. REC YDS96
    4. REC TD0

    There's no shame in getting shut down by Alterraun Verner. Unfortunately for Hilton, he'll likely get a heavy dose of Patrick Peterson this week.

    1. Darrius Heyward-Bey
    2. Darrius
      Heyward-Bey
      WR
    3. REC YDS30
    4. REC TD0

    Heyward-Bey had one catch for 10 yards last week. He should remain on the waiver wire in 100 percent of leagues.

    1. Coby Fleener
    2. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    3. REC YDS84
    4. REC TD1

    Fleener had eight catches for 107 yards last week. Get him in there against an Arizona defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. Adam Vinatieri
    2. Adam
      Vinatieri
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Vinatieri made all three of his field-goal attempts last week and is now 20-for-23 on the season.

    1. Indianapolis Colts
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    They haven't done much against two mediocre offenses in the Rams and Titans the last two weeks. The Cardinals bring more firepower than either of those teams.

Arizona Cardinals

    1. Carson Palmer
    2. Carson
      Palmer
      QB
    3. PASS YDS305
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Palmer torched the Jaguars last week, throwing for 419 yards and two touchdowns. He's a high-end QB2 against the Colts.

    1. Andre Ellington
    2. Andre
      Ellington
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS65
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS25
    6. REC TD0

    For some reason, Ellington got just eight carries last week. Without an increase in his workload, he can't be considered more than an RB3.

    1. Rashard Mendenhall
    2. Rashard
      Mendenhall
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS38
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Mendenhall had a whopping 14 yards on 13 carries last week. Keep him planted on your bench.

    1. Larry Fitzgerald
    2. Larry
      Fitzgerald
      WR
    3. REC YDS104
    4. REC TD1

    Fitz caught six passes for 61 yards and a touchdown last week. Start him with confidence against an Indianapolis defense allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Michael Floyd
    2. Michael
      Floyd
      WR
    3. REC YDS88
    4. REC TD1

    Floyd rode a 91-yard touchdown to a 193-yard day last week. Get him in your lineups against an Indianapolis team allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Andre Roberts
    2. Andre
      Roberts
      WR
    3. REC YDS51
    4. REC TD0

    Roberts had three catches for 14 yards last week and is far too inconsistent for fantasy owners.

    1. Rob Housler
    2. Rob
      Housler
      TE
    3. REC YDS35
    4. REC TD0

    Housler had six catches for 70 yards last week, thought that likely had something to do with the Jaguars defense.

    1. Jay Feely
    2. Jay
      Feely
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    Feely made both of his field-goal attempts last week and is 18-for-19 on the season.

    1. Arizona Cardinals
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    Owners of the Cardinals defense could be rightfully disappointed getting just two sacks and two takeaways against the Jaguars. You should probably start them, but don't expect a huge game against the Colts.
