Zach Pascal, WR, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton (calf) missed another game Sunday against the Tampa Bay Bucccaneers, and Pascal took advantage of a favorable matchup with five receptions (on nine targets) for 74 yards and a touchdown along with a two-point conversion. There is some doubt that Hilton returns to action this season, so Pascal may very well remain Indianapolis’ No. 1 wide receiver. A nice matchup is coming in Week 15.
The New Orleans Saints entered Week 14 allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to wide receivers (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR scoring), before the San Francisco 49ers’ wide receivers combined for 15 receptions for 251 yards and three touchdowns (four total touchdowns) on Sunday. Next Monday night’s game could evolve into an indoor game shootout, bringing plenty of pass volume for Colts’ quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers looks favorable too, and if Week 17 is relevant in your league the Jacksonville Jaguars look vulnerable and may be booking tee times by then.
Pascal’s fantasy outlook for the rest of the season still rides somewhat on Hilton’s health. But as a WR3 who could deliver WR1-level production, Pascal makes the must-adds for Week 15.
