Kansas City Chiefs
vs
Indianapolis Colts
Arrowhead Stadium | Sunday, Dec. 22 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Indianapolis Colts

    1. Andrew Luck
    2. Andrew
      Luck
      QB
    3. PASS YDS238
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS18
    7. RUSH TD0

    Luck threw for 180 yards, two touchdowns and an interception last week. The Chiefs, however, have actually been more friendly than the average team to fantasy quarterbacks this year.

    1. Trent Richardson
    2. Trent
      Richardson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS28
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Richardson would start if Donald Brown has to sit out, but there's no way you could consider him a starter against Kansas City.

    1. Donald Brown
    2. Donald
      Brown
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS0
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Brown left last week's game with a stinger and could sit this week. The Colts brought in former Chief Shaun Draughn.

    1. T.Y. Hilton
    2. T.Y.
      Hilton
      WR
    3. REC YDS79
    4. REC TD1

    Hilton caught eight passes for 78 yards last week. Consider him a WR3 against the Chiefs.

    1. Da'Rick Rogers
    2. Da'Rick
      Rogers
      WR
    3. REC YDS43
    4. REC TD1

    Rogers caught two passes for 23 yards one week after his coming-out party. He's no better than a WR4 this week.

    1. Coby Fleener
    2. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD0

    Fleener got just one target last week, and the Chiefs have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this year.

    1. Adam Vinatieri
    2. Adam
      Vinatieri
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG1

    Vinatieri made all three of his field-goal attempts last week and is 29-for-33 on the season.

    1. Indianapolis Colts
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Colts had two takeaways and four sacks while holding the Texans to three points last week. Still, this is not a great matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs

    1. Alex Smith
    2. Alex
      Smith
      QB
    3. PASS YDS247
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Alex Smith rode the Jamaal Charles express to a 287-yard, five-touchdown performance last week. Consider him a high-end QB2 this week.

    1. Jamaal Charles
    2. Jamaal
      Charles
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS130
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS50
    6. REC TD0

    Charles had a fantasy day for the ages last week, racking up 215 total yards and five touchdowns. He has as strong a case as Peyton Manning for the MVP award.

    1. Dwayne Bowe
    2. Dwayne
      Bowe
      WR
    3. REC YDS48
    4. REC TD1

    It has been a terrible year for Bowe individually. He's no better than a WR3 this week.

    1. Donnie Avery
    2. Donnie
      Avery
      WR
    3. REC YDS61
    4. REC TD0

    Avery had just two catches for 33 yards last week and should not be on your radar.

    1. Dexter McCluster
    2. Dexter
      McCluster
      WR
    3. REC YDS29
    4. REC TD0

    McCluster missed last week's game and is not fantasy relevant.

    1. Anthony Fasano
    2. Anthony
      Fasano
      TE
    3. REC YDS40
    4. REC TD0

    Fasano was inactive last week. If he returns, you don't want to start him.

    1. Ryan Succop
    2. Ryan
      Succop
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Succop didn't attempt a field goal last week, but he did have eight extra points. He is 21-for-25 on field goals this year.

    1. Kansas City Chiefs
    2. PTS ALLOWED17
    3. SACKS5
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Colts haven't been the same since losing Reggie Wayne, and now they may turn to Trent Richardson once again. Start the Chiefs with confidence.
