The Vikings are 14th against fantasy backs, but Robinson has been a Top-5 option in 3 of his last 5 games. He should see a ton of touches and warrant RB1 status again this week.Pittman Jr crashed last week after two solid games, but he was still targeted nine times. Pittman Jr is a WR3 option against the Texans 22nd ranked wide receiver defense.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It blows my mind a bit how QB-proof James Robinson has been this season. It doesn't matter who he has at QB, he just continues to produce for fantasy football with his ridiculous carry totals. Up against the Vikings defense, Robinson's a mid-range RB1 that could finish even higher than that. He's a no-brainer start at this point.Pittman continued to be heavily targeted last week, although he wasn't able to do much with the nine targets he saw. Rivers just simply could not put the ball on target for him and Pittman's stats look a lot worse than what the film shows. Fantasy managers need to lean into the target volume and the talent with Pittman, but the QB play certainly downgrades his fantasy potential. Pittman can be plugged in as a mid-range WR3 this week with upside due to Bradley Roby now being out for the year.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 There will be many fantasy managers upset with the 2/28/0 line that Pittman put up in Week 12 but I'm not one of them. I'm actually happy about the nine targets he saw, as he's now seen at least seven targets in three of the last four games, which is enough to make me feel better about recommending him in plus matchups. The running backs aren't the only ones that get to have fun against the Texans, as wide receivers have averaged a robust 1.98 PPR points per target, which ranks as the fourth-most in football. We know touchdowns have been hard to come by for Colts receivers, but the Texans are one of just four teams who've allowed one fewer than every 15.0 targets (they've allowed one every 14.2 targets). They also just lost their best cornerback for the remainder of the season, as Bradley Roby was suspended. That means Pittman will see a mixture of Vernon Hargreaves and Keion Crossen in coverage. Hargreaves is a veteran who's been a stomping ground for wide receivers over his entire career and this year is no different, allowing 40-of-59 passing for 566 yards (seventh-most in NFL) and three touchdowns. Meanwhile, Crossen is a seventh-round pick from 2018 who's seen just 20 targets over his three years in the league, netting 17/218/0. Pittman should get back on track this week, but seeing as consistency has been an issue for all Colts receivers, he must remain in the risk/reward WR4 range.
