Fantasy football projections, Week 17: Jaguars vs. Colts featuring Chad Henne, Andrew Luck and T.Y.Hilton

We break down the Week 17 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Week 17 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts features two division rivals in two very different situations. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have been springing upsets left and right, even though they haven't had much to play for since the middle of the season. Quarterback Chad Henne has something to do with that. He's turnover prone, but it hasn't stopped him from throwing a pair of touchdowns in each of the last four games. The Colts don't defend the pass well so that should continue.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew could be in for quite a game as the Colts are sub-par against the run. Jones-Drew has been better over the last six weeks than he has over the rest of the season, so he might find himself in the end zone this week.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts as a team have been on shaky ground the last little while but they're starting to straighten out the ship just in time for the playoffs. Andrew Luck marched the team into Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City last week and found a way to top the Chiefs. He's been an average fantasy performer the last two weeks but is a safe bet against the Jaguars.

If the Colts decide to play a conservative game, it could directly affect T.Y. Hilton's ability to produce. Hilton has been hit or miss all year even though he's very talented. The good news is the Jaguars give up their share of points through the air so Hilton could be in for some big-time production. He'll no doubt get his share of opportunities this Sunday.
