Indianapolis Colts, D/ST
The Colts defense has been fairly unspectacular fantasy wise all season, but four takeaways and a return touchdown in Week 14 led to double-digit fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring) in a second straight game and the third time in their last four. Week 15 is still coming for them as of this writing, against the New Orleans Saints, but a promising matchup will come in Week 16.
The Carolina Panthers are scoring points at a reasonable level, but Kyle Allen has thrown five interceptions over the last two games and he took at least three sacks in seven straight games prior to Sunday. So the Colts’ defense will be provided some chances to produce, with home field advantage in their corner too.
Indianapolis is an ideal streamer for Week 16, with a high floor and a solid-to-high ceiling. Don’t let what might be a bad performance against the Saints Monday night make you forget about the championship game matchup.
