Jacoby Brissett will look to build on a solid preseason as Thursday’s starter.
Overall, he’s averaged 7.4 yards per attempt and completed 61.4% of his passes — numbers that are much closer to Brissett’s production with the Patriots in 2016 than with the Colts in 2017. The 2016 third-round pick has a fantasy-friendly dual-threat skill set, but life could still be tough behind the Colts’ porous offensive line and mediocre receiving corps sans T.Y. Hilton.
Sixty-one percent of public tickets have backed the under after the total opened at 36.5.
The Bengals have quietly built up a formidable crop of playmakers on offense. A.J. Green, John Ross, Joe Mixon and Tyler Eifert all made their presence felt during the team’s Week 3 dress rehearsal.
The top of the depth chart is set in stone at this point, but the likes of Auden Tate and Cody Core (undisclosed, out) are battling for the last wide receiver spot.
