The Houston Texans have a division title locked up, but they still need a win to clinch homefield advantage through the playoffs, so it doesn't look like they'll be resting their starters when they travel to Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. The Colts also have a playoff spot and will welcome Chuck Pagano back on the sidelines. Look for an emotional game between two divisional rivals with something to prove. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Texans are expected to go all in and build some momentum for the playoffs after stumbling in recent weeks. Arian Foster was forced from last week's loss with an irregular heartbeat, but he's fine now and looks to close the fantasy season on a high note. The Colts have a burnable secondary even if they don't pull their starters. Look for another big day from Andre Johnson.
The Colts haven't confirmed that they will rest the starters, but with reports that Andrew Luck has a tired arm, he and his teammates may have a short day. I would look elsewhere for my Week 17 fantsy production.
