Texans-Colts Key Injuries


The Texans three starting WRs on opening day were Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb. All three are potentially out again this week — Fuller is suspended; Cooks is questionable with a neck injury; Cobb could be activated from IR. This puts Keke Coutee in a potential starring role again come Sunday.


The Colts’ injury report is pretty clean, beyond DT DeForest Beckner (ankle) and TE Mo Alie-Cox both being listed as questionable as of Thursday.

Texans-Colts Players to Watch

HOU QB Deshaun Watson keeps producing despite not having much around him. In the past four weeks, he as topped 300 passing yards three times and also has seven passing TDs and one pick during that span. The Colts D is very good against the pass, but Watson did throw for 341 yards and no TDs when these teams met just two weeks back.

IND RB Jonathan Taylor is currently an RB1, for those of you in fantasy circles, despite missing parts of three games. He ran for 91 yards on 13 carries and added a receiving TD when these teams met two weeks ago. To follow that up, the back had 120 yards on 20 carries with two rushing TDs last week. He should outdo his Week 13 performance against the Texans this Sunday.

Lucas Oil Stadium is a dome, so weather should not impact the Texans-Colts game on Sunday.

Texans-Colts Picks & Best Bet

BEST BET: Colts -7 (-115)

The Colts beat the Texans, 26-20, in Week 13 at Houston. The home-field advantage for Indianapolis and a rash of injuries for the Texans is enough for me to expect the Colts to win by at least a TD. The -115 odds mean that it’s likely we get to Colts -7.5 by kickoff Sunday, so get this bet in or consider buying it down to Colts -6.5. I’d hate to lose a best bet by half a point.

CONSIDER: Under 51 (-115)

When these two teams played just a couple of weeks ago, they tallied a total of 46 points. The Texans scored just seven points last week while the Colts put up a whopping 44. With Indianapolis being the higher scoring of these two squads at 28.6 PPG, I just can’t see Houston making up the difference here, so I’ll consider taking the under.

PASS: Colts (-331)

Taking the Colts to win the game straight up is likely a good play, but risking more than 3-to-1 on your money is something I’ll pass on.
