Colts vs. Chiefs: Fantasy football projections featuring Andrew Luck, Jamaal Charles, T.Y. Hilton

USA TODAY Sports

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 15 matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16. The Colts can clinch a playoff berth with a win, thus completing their turnaround from a 2-14 season. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are the Chiefs. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Indianapolis Colts

For all the (deserved) hype around Andrew Luck, his fantasy numbers actually haven't been that impressive--he's completed only 54% of his passes and sports a 20:18 TD:INT ratio. That said, he has an appealing matchup this week and projects well as a QB2 for the fantasy championships. Reggie Wayne remains a no-brainer start in all leagues. And the explosive T.Y. Hilton has been on a tear recently.

Vick Ballard has stepped ever since Donald Brown, but the coaches still don't completely trust him, inexplicably giving red zone touches to Mewelde Moore last week.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs failed to score a single point against the Raiders defense. That about tells you all you need to know about this team. Jamaal Charles had just 12 touches for 28 yards, which essentially seals the coaching staff's fate. He can't be trusted this week as long as Romeo Crennel and Brian Daboll are wearing headsets.

There have been rumors that the Chiefs will give Ricky Stanzi some playing time. That would be pretty funny.
