Our system currently has Watson as the top projected quarterback this weekend but I am not completely buying it. As division rivals, these two teams played each other twice this year with each team getting a three-point win on the road. In those games, Luck was easily the best fantasy option racking up 863 passing yards with six touchdowns. Houston comes into this game ranked #1 in DVOA against the rush but #18 against the pass so it makes sense to go this route for both the team and for fantasy. Pair Luck with T.Y. Hilton who hasn't been practicing all week but is probable to play and the industry doesn't seem to be too worried as he currently leads all tags on FanShareSports. He was also a beast in the two meetings this season catching four of six targets for 115 yards in the first game and nine of 12 targets for 199 yards in the second game. You can also consider Eric Ebron in a stack with Luck as he finished the regular season 10th overall in red zone targets(21) and second in red zone touchdowns(11). While Watson is currently #1 in raw projected points for quarterbacks, Luck leads the projections in pass attempts giving him big-time upside on this small slate. The Colts will be a very chalky team to stack this week but there are plenty of ways to differentiate yourself with the rest of your available slots.
This stack is the contrarian option this week as it appears most people will be playing the Bears defense and for good reason, as they allowed the third fewest yards per game overall(299.7), the least amount of points per game(17.7), and finished with the third most sacks(50). For the Eagles to have any chance in this game, Nick Foles will have to show some more of his playoff magic and put up a monster game. He is cheap on both sites, has 300+ yard/3+ TD upside and will likely be the lowest owned QB on the slate. My top target to pair with Foles is Zach Ertz who not only led all tight ends with 156 targets but also finished 6th overall in that category. Ertz draws a tough matchup but has shown to be matchup proof many times this season so I am not overly concerned. At the wide receiver position, Alshon Jeffery has been the most consistent when it comes to targets(6.8 per game last four weeks) and fantasy points(10+ in four straight games) but Nelson Agholor has shown incredible upside lately with three touchdowns and some long receptions in his last two games and also comes at a discount.
