Fantasy Football Week 16: Texans, Colts Thursday Night Preview

A preview from a fantasy perspective for tonight's game between Houston and Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Colts host the Houston Texans in the Thursday Night game for Week 16. Let's take a look at what each team offers from a fantasy perspective and check out some team projections courtesy of numberfire.com.

Texans

The Texans boast one of the best backs around in Arian Foster, so you'll definitely be playing him. And depending on how deep your league is backup running back Ben Tate could be a nice flex/injury play. Kicker Neil Rackers is another good option for Houston, but unfortunately wide receiver Andre Johnson will miss the game due to injury. The tight end duo of Owen Daniels and Joel Dreesen are risky plays, and the Texan defense should be a play against the Colts.

Colts

If you're relying on the Colts for any fantasy help, you're probably in desperate times anyway. Last week Donald Brown broke out for a huge game, but faces a stiff Texans defense this week. You could take a shot with Pierre Garcon or Reggie Wayne, but that means you're thin at receiver and need emergency help. It's hard to recommend any Colts players at this point.
