Desperately needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive and playing against one of the softest secondaries in the NFL, the Indianapolis Colts have a great chance to put up big points through their passing game this week against the Jaguars. That means there are fantasy considerations for their top three wide receivers, and here’s how that breaks down.
Fantasy Football analysis: Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman, Zach Pascal
After toiling in obscurity to start the season, Hilton has since returned to the team’s No. 1 option. He had 60 yards on three catches in a brutal team effort against the Steelers last week. Pittman had just 38 yards on three catches. Pascal, usually more of the second receiver here, led the group with 64 yards and a touchdown.
The Jaguars secondary is down the fringes of the depth chart. They’ve allowed at least one opposing receiver to top 90 yards in every game since Week 4.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
T.Y. Hilton is a good fit at WR2 this week. Pascal makes a decent play for third or fourth receiver, but you can leave Pittman out of your lineup.
