Donnie Avery probable for Week 15: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donnie Avery is probable for the Colts game against the Texans on Sunday with a rib injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donnie Avery was a full participant in practice on Friday and is listed as probable for the Colts game against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Avery was limited with a rib injury on Wednesday, but was a full participant on both Thursday and Friday.

Avery has not missed a game for the Colts this season and has 52 receptions for 706 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Avery's health is not a concern, but he still might not be a viable fantasy option against the Texans. Avery has been held under 40 yards receiving in three of the last four weeks, but in Week 13 he did manage to go for 91 yards and two touchdowns.

Avery is a risky WR3 or flex option, but if the Texans secondary plays like it did against the Patriots any of the Colts receivers could end up in the end zone.
