Scouting report

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacoby Brissett only had 119 yards passing last week, although he added 37 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Brissett hasn’t been a solid fantasy option for much of the season, but his limited passing numbers last week were largely due to the Colts getting up early on the Panthers and then running the ball for the rest of the game.

This is a great matchup to finish the season. The Jaguars rank 25th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year and they are barely playing with a pulse right now. Brissett hasn’t been productive enough throughout the season to consider him a viable QB1 option in most leagues, but if you’re desperate for a streaming option, you could do worse than Brissett in a good matchup.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Carolina Panthers

Jacoby Brissett and the rest of the Colts offense was terrible last week against the Saints. He finished with only 165 yards and completed just 52.9% of his passes in a blowout loss. Brissett has rarely put up good fantasy numbers this year and he has a tough matchup against the Panthers this week, who rank fourth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season. Brissett should be on waivers in most leagues and should be on the bench in all but the deepest of two-quarterback formats.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at New Orleans Saints

Jacoby Brissett threw for 251 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a close loss to the Buccaneers last week. He’s been inconsistent at best when it comes to fantasy production, but those seem like the best you can generally hope for from him, as he has only four passing touchdowns over his past six games – although he’s ran two in during that time. Against a tough Saints defense that gave up big points to the 49ers last week but ranks 12th in the league in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks, owners should have better streaming options available. Even in 2QB leagues, he’s a fringe option.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jacoby Brissett had over 300 yards passing last week against the Titans – for just the third time this year – but he threw one touchdown to two uncharacteristic interceptions in a tough division loss that really hurt the Colts’ post-season chances. Brissett has been efficient at times this season, but he’s yet to become a viable and consistent fantasy starter, and his ball-control approach to the game should make fantasy owners wary of trusting him long term.

Brissett does have the ability to take advantage of a good matchup from time to time however, and the Buccaneers rank 26th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season. While not a top option by any means, desperate fantasy owners needing someone to stream or looking for a QB2 option might consider Brissett in an excellent matchup.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Tennessee Titans

Jacoby Brissett struggled in what should’ve been a great matchup against the Texans last week. He threw for only 129 yards in a close loss. He did add 20 yards and a touchdown on the ground, but it was still an overall disappointing performance for fantasy owners expecting bigger things against a vulnerable defense. The Colts seemed committed to running the ball, even without starter Marlon Mack, making it hard to predict big fantasy numbers for Brissett moving forward.

This week, Brissett faces a Titans defense that ranks 19th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year. They just held Nick Foles without a touchdown pass last week and are still fighting for a potential playoff spot. This is going to be a tough game between two division rivals and will likely feature a strong rushing attack from both teams. Brissett should be considered a QB2 at best this week as we have him ranked just inside our top-20.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Houston Texans

Jacoby Brissett salvaged a limited fantasy performance through the air last week with a rushing touchdown, but he finished with only 12 yards rushing and 148 passing, throwing a touchdown and a pick. Brissett has been successful for the Colts this year, leading the team to a 6-3 record as a starter and winning in a variety of different ways, but his bread and butter is his 15/4 TD/Interception ratio.

Brissett has a few nice matchups on the slate to close out the season, giving him streaming and QB2 value, starting with this week against the Texans. Houston ranks 24th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season and just got torched by Lamar Jackson on Sunday to the tune of four passing touchdowns. Brissett is a nice option for owners with bye week troubles or for season-long streamers.

IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacoby Brissett missed last week against the Dolphins after suffering an injury against Pittsburgh in Week 9, but he’s supposed to be ready to go against the Jaguars this week. Brissett has been a nice surprise for Colts fans, tossing a modest 14 touchdowns compared to only three interceptions on his way to a 5-3 record as a starter. He offers very little upside, but has proven to be a serviceable QB2 in most weeks, especially when he has a nice matchup.

The Jaguars rank 16th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season, giving Brissett some upside in what could be a competitive game. Jacksonville allowed a pair of touchdowns to DeShaun Watson in London before their bye last week, but they only sacked Watson once the entire game. If Brissett gets similar protection, he should be worth considering as a QB2 option. There should be better streaming options in leagues that feature one quarterback, however.
