The Colts defense is going to be shorthanded with DT DeForest Buckner, DE Denico Autry and LB Bobby Okereke all out in this one, but I don’t think this leads to a great day for Tannehill. If anything, I think the running lanes will open up, and that Derrick Henry is going to carry the rock a ton in this one. If you play in a two-quarterback or superflex league, I’d still start Tannehill. He has great weapons that can turn a five-yard slant into a 60 yard touchdown on any given play. However, it’s entirely possible that he isn’t asked to do much, and that this is a patented late-season Derrick Henry slugfest.
If you’re looking for some upside plays, here are some names I’m looking at:
Tyler Boyd: WR, CIN vs NYG
Jamison Crowder: WR, NYJ vs MIA
Brian Hill: RB, ATL vs LV
Ryan Fitzpatrick (if he starts): QB, MIA vs NYJ
Wayne Gallman: RB, NYG vs CIN
