Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Spin
Jacoby Brissett completed 14-of-27 passes for 119 yards in Indianapolis' Week 16 win over the Panthers. His fourth-and-one touchdown sneak into the heart of Carolina's trenches salvaged his fantasy day. Brissett also played a big role in Indy's blowout via his legs, intelligently tucking the ball and running for a 24-yard gain before hitting Mo Alie-Cox for 21 yards up the seam and allowing Marlon Mack (16/95/1) to punch it in from one-yard out. He ultimately only attempted 27 passes since Nyheim Hines brought two punt returns back for touchdowns. Brissett will have one more opportunity to prove why Indy should hold off from shopping for another option under center this offseason in the team's regular season finale against the Jaguars.
Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Spin
Gardner Minshew (shoulder) is listed as questionable for the Jaguars' Week 17 matchup against the Colts. Minshew managed to practice in a limited fashion and is tentatively expected to suit up Sunday. It's been rough sledding for this entire offense in recent weeks, as they've scored just 12, 20, 10 and 11 points since Week 13. Minshew hasn't offered much upside all season, but has rushed for at least 25 rushing yards in eight of his 13 games.
The over is 12-5 in the Colts’ last 17 games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
The under is 5-2 in the Jaguars’ last seven home games versus a team with a losing road record.
NFL Week 17 Prediction
The under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings between these division rivals and is 25-9 in the Colts’ last 34 games played in December. The under is also 7-3 in the Colts’ last 10 games coming off a win of more than 14 points and is 4-0 in their last four games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game. On the other side, the under is 9-3 in the Jaguars’ last 12 home games, is 9-4 in their last 13 games coming off a loss and is 6-1 in their last seven games played in the month of December.
