The Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs announced their inactives for Sunday Night Football and the Colts got some good news for a key Matchup. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and running back Marlon Mack are both active for the game after entering Sunday as game-day decisions.

Hilton missed Week 3 with a quadricep injury. He sat out Wednesday’s practice, but got in limited workouts on Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable. Mack injured his ankle in the fourth quarter of the Colts Week 4 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He sat out Wednesday and Thursday practices, but was a full participant on Friday. He was a game-time decision, but it clearly worked out fine.

Fantasy football analysis, Colts WR T.Y. Hilton, RB Marlon Mack

Both are strong starts in a game that should feature plenty of offensive fireworks. Mack might not get a ton of work in the passing game, but he’ll be plenty busy as the Colts attempt to keep Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense off the field. Mack’s activation leaves Nyheim Hines as a solid PPR start, but not worth starting in standard leagues.

This will likely be a game in which Indianapolis is playing catch-up, so Hilton should get plenty of targets. The Chiefs defense is shaky at best, and Hilton remains a must-start in all leagues.
