Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Spin
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, T.Y. Hilton (questionable, calf) is "trending in the right direction" for Week 15 against the Saints. Hilton, who hasn't seen the field since Week 12, remains a game-time call, though the Colts reportedly feel he has a "good shot" of suiting up Monday night in New Orleans. His availability will ultimately come down to how he fares in pre-game warmups. Hilton's return would presumably bump undrafted rookie Ashton Dulin from three-wide sets.
New Orleans Saints Fantasy Spin
Coach Sean Payton said TE Jared Cook (concussion) is expected to suit up for the Saints' Monday night matchup against the Colts. Cook practiced in full on Friday and wasn't listed on the team's final injury report. He caught both of his targets for 64 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just eight snaps in Week 14 before exiting the game. Cook has earned high-end TE1 treatment as Drew Brees' undisputed No. 3 pass-game option behind only Thomas and Alvin Kamara.
NFL Betting Trends
The Colts are 6-2-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games and are 3-1-2 against the number in their last six games as a road underdog.
The Saints are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 home games and are 1-5 against the number in their last six games played on Monday.
The Colts blew last week’s game in Tampa but they’ve also thrived in these spots all season. The only time the Colts have lost by multiple possessions this season was at home to the Titans, beat Indy 31-17 but that game was closer than the final score would indicate. The Titans blocked a field goal and returned it for a touchdown, which aided the blowout, otherwise that was a game that the Colts firmly could have won. Take out that game, and the Colts have not lost by double-digits all season. In fact, they upset the Chiefs 19-13 at Arrowhead Stadium back in October as a 10.5-point underdog so they’ve already won a big primetime game as a big dog this season.
