The Colts slipped out of playoff contention by losing their last four games and quarterback Jacoby Brissett‘s play has also slipped over that period, but the Colts have no interest in taking a look at Chad Kelly in the final two weeks.
That was the response from head coach Frank Reich on Tuesday when he was asked if the team would consider giving Kelly playing time before the end of the regular season.
Reich said, "Jacoby's our quarterback," the story said. Reich added the team is still fighting to get better for the next two games and for next year. He noted Brissett is just a second-year starter.
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.
