Week 15: Sleepers of the Week
T.Y. Hilton and the Indianapolis Colts travel to Houston for a huge divisional matchup in week 15. Hilton has been a major surprise for the Colts this season, with four performances of over 100 receiving yards. Three of these 100 yard performances have come in the last six games, with Hilton also adding four receiving touchdowns over this period. Andrew Luck will have to make use of Hilton's big play ability this week if the Colts are going to be able to keep up with the high scoring Texans offense in what could turn into a high scoring affair. I fully expect the Texans offense to bounce back this week, forcing Luck and the Colts to air the ball out even more than they usually do. This is good news for Hilton and the rest of the Colts wide receivers. Fantasy owners can start T.Y. Hilton as a WR 3 this week and can expect 80 yards and a touchdown from the rookie wide receiver.
Sidney Rice and the Seattle Seahawks travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills in week 15. Rice is coming off a poor game against the Cardinals in which he caught just two passes for 35 yards. His lack of production can be attributed mostly to the score of the game, with the Seahawks jumping out to a 38-0 halftime lead in route to a 58-0 win. The Seahawks attempted just 22 passes, but should be forced to throw the ball much more in week 15. Rice looked to be fully healthy in week 14, and should be able to put up a good game against the Bills' 14th ranked pass defense. Fantasy owners should get Sidney Rice into their lineups this week as a WR 2-3 or Flex play and can expect at least 75 yards and a touchdown.
