Zach Pascal, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Pascal has a favorable matchup still coming in Week 15 on Monday night against the New Orleans Saints as of this writing, with T.Y. Hilton deemed a game-time decision. But Pascal is still in line to succeed, and looking ahead to Week 16 he’s good another good matchup regardless of Hilton’s status.
The Carolina Panthers went into Week 15 as a bottom-10 defense against wide receivers, before Seahawks’ wide receiver Tyler Lockett posted eight receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown against them on Sunday. If Pascal is functioning as Indianapolis’ No. 1 wide receiver, or even if he’s not, there’s a lot of upside next Sunday.
Hilton’s absence and some good matchups have made Pascal into a difference maker for fantasy owners down the stretch. Expect the good times to continue in Week 16, whether Hilton plays or not.
