The Houston Texans host the Indianapolis Colts in a key AFC South showdown. The division title is still up for grabs as these teams play each other twice in three games, so expect plenty of fantasy fireworks between these two divisional foes. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Texans defense got roasted by Tom Brady and Co., but Andrew Luck is no Tom Brady...yet. Luck has hit the rookie wall--he's thrown eight interceptions in the past four games and hasn't completed 60% of his passes since Week 10. He's a shaky option for the fantasy semifinals and probably shouldn't be starting in one-QB leagues.
With Donald Brown done for the season, Vick Ballard will get the majority of carries. He has shown flashes of brilliance, but may have trouble finding holes behind a porous O-line. This Texans defense will be playing angry after getting embarrassed on Monday night.
Arian Foster has been laboring all season with just 3.8 YPC, but he'll continue racking up yards and touchdowns as long as he keeps up his massive workload. Look for a bounce back game from him. Matt Schaub was out of sync against the Patriots, and is also looking to rebound.
