Thursday Night Football Betting Guide

Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.

Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.

Despite a disappointing season by his All-Pro standards, DeAndre Hopkins returns home to face a short-handed Indianapolis secondary. Rookie cornerback Rock Ya-Sin has not practiced due to an ankle injury suffered last week’s win over Jacksonville. In addition, veteran cornerback Pierre Desir is a game-time decision as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Hopkins has enjoyed consistent fantasy WR1 production against the Colts over the past five seasons.

In Week 7 in Indianapolis, Hopkins tallied an overall WR3 performance with 12 targets, nine receptions, 106 receiving yards and a touchdown. And since 2015, he’s averaging 6.3 receptions, 79.4 receiving yards, 0.64 touchdowns and 18.1 PPR fantasy points in home games.
