Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 PPR Rankings

Jonathan Taylor Note

How ridiculous is Taylor's fantasy production so far this season? He currently has 266.1 Half PPR fantasy points through 12 games. The next closest player to him at the RB position is Austin Ekeler with 217.2 Half PPR points. He's currently averaging 22.2 fantasy points per game and he has now scored a touchdown in 9 straight games. Frank Reich finally came to the conclusion that fantasy managers have had for the last two years now that JT deserves a massive workload and it's translating to wins for the Colts and fantasy players alike. As if all of that wasn't good enough, Taylor now gets a matchup against the Texans defense that is allowing 120.1 rushing yards per game to opposing RBs, which is the second highest mark in the league. You were already doing this, but continue to start Taylor as the RB1 every week moving forward.

Michael Pittman Jr. Note

It's probably time that we recognize just how dominant Pittman has been this season. After being drafted around the WR50 mark in drafts this past off-season, Pittman is now the WR16 on the season and he's averaging 11.8 Half PPR points per game. He has 61 receptions on the season for 805 yards and 5 touchdowns through 12 games and he was essentially free in drafts. While he's had a few down games here recently, he's still an incredibly consistent WR that's receiving the majority of the targets in Indianapolis. With all that being said, he now gets to take on the Texans defense this week and this is a matchup that you're going to turn right back around and plug him into your starting lineup. The Texans are allowing 173.8 receiving yards per game to opposing WRs and we should see Pittman get back on track here. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR2.

T.Y. Hilton Note

Hilton was able to find the end zone this past week, but he had done next to nothing the previous few weeks to even warrant consideration. In the previous matchup between the Colts and Texans this year, Hilton went off for 80 yards, but we shouldn't view him as anything more than a desperation FLEX play in Week 13.

Nyheim Hines Note

We have now gone eight of the last nine games with Hines finishing outside the top-45 RBs on the week. This is completely Jonathan Taylor's backfield and Hines is subsequently off the redraft radar. He can be dropped if you're still hanging onto him.

Jack Doyle Note

Fantasy managers had been looking at Mo Alie-Cox as the Colts TE to roster earlier on in the year, but Doyle has recently emerged as a viable streaming option. He now has 17 targets over his last three games and he's running a route on 84.6% of his snaps during that time frame. The Texans have gotten gashed by opposing TEs this year and they're allowing 9.3 fantasy points per game to the position on average. If you're in need of a streaming option for Week 13, Doyle should be considered as a mid-range TE2.
