The Indianapolis Colts had a big fantasy football day in Week 1. It will be interesting to see if they can carry that momentum into Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
Meanwhile, the Colts also had six skill position players reach double digits in fantasy football points in standard league formats on ESPN. It will be hard for the Colts to top the results they earned in Week 2.
The Colts face the Denver Broncos Sunday, and the Broncos are known for their stout defense. The Broncos’ defense/ special teams only registered five points (ESPN) against the Carolina Panthers. However, they only Cam Newton, Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen hit double digits.
Fortunately, the Colts are very familiar with the Broncos. Sunday will be the fifth time in four seasons the two sides will meet. The Colts currently have the edge by winning three of the four previous meetings.
That familiarity could help the Colts. Luck and his receivers have seen this defense numerous times and had success. The group might have another way to find some holes in the Broncos’ defense.
With that in mind, the Colts have a handful of quality plays in fantasy football this week. However, some of them may be gambles simply because the Broncos’ defense is very good.
Here are five Colts’ players who should do well in fantasy football Week 2.
