Colts Vs Patriots 2018: Top 5 fantasy football players to consider

A look at which players may end up with big stats when New England hosts Indianapolis on October 4.

1

Tom Brady - QB, Patriots

After a big win at home against the Miami Dolphins, Brady and the Pats are back for "Thursday Night Football." This time, they'll draw the Colts in a favorable matchup. Brady may also have Josh Gordon, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman among his targets, giving him more stats potential. Of those players, Gronk is questionable right now, but the returning Edelman could boost Brady's stat sheet.

2

Julian Edelman - WR, Patriots

The Patriots welcome back Edelman after his four-game suspension for a positive test for PEDs. Edelman is among Brady's favorite targets on the field. If Gronk ends up sitting out, it could mean more targets Edelman's way. He's also well-rested and ready to go, so if the Pats have a big game, and a lopsided win, he may be the beneficiary of plenty of passes.

3

Andrew Luck - QB, Colts

Luck had a stellar outing against the Texans, albeit in a losing effort. He complete 40-of-62 passes and finished with 464 yards plus four touchdowns. He generally hasn't fared well against Bellichick, Brady, and the Patriots, but did well the last time they played, several years ago. If anyone is to try to keep the Colts alive in this road game, it should be Luck.

4

Eric Ebron - TE, Colts

The Colts have numerous injuries that hit them ahead of this matchup, including star receiver T.Y. Hilton. That means Ebron becomes more valuable as a starting option for fantasy owners. Ebron had five catches on 10 targets and finished with 40 yards and a touchdown in last week's loss to the Texans. However, his targets should go up with Hilton, and possibly Doyle, missing this game.

5

Chester Rogers - WR, Colts

In addition to Ebron, another receiver due for more targets, is Chester Rogers. In Week 4 versus Houston, he caught eight receptions for 85 yards. Luck targeted him 11 times in the game. The Colts' running game has been a mess so far this season. That means Luck will be throwing a lot more if he wants to possibly keep pace with Brady and the Pats.
