I had the Colts plus four and started Will Fuller in my best NFFC league, so it could have been a lot worse. But I also have the Colts at 2:1 to win the AFC South, Duke Johnson in one deep league and I won't know until the afternoon games (typically when I check my opponents' teams) whether I'm facing DeAndre Hopkins anywhere.
• Jacoby Brissett didn't play as badly as the numbers – he suffered from a few drops by T.Y. Hilton and Nyheim Hines, and he wasn't asked to do much. He's probably better-suited for backup work, as most competent caretakers are.
• Jonathan Williams had a huge role – 26 carries and three targets – and passed the eye test. Marlon Mack could be back as early as Week 13, but if he isn't, Williams is clearly the workhorse, even though Hines ran well as a change of pace.
• None of the Colts receivers did much, including Hilton who had a couple drops. At least he didn't aggravate his calf injury and should see more snaps 10 days from now.
• Deshaun Watson converted a few big third-downs by scrambling and buying time. He also benefitted from the return of Fuller and a blown coverage on Hopkins.
• Fuller looked healthy and showed good focus on the deep balls. Hopkins got one gift TD and also made a nice play on his second score. And no one has been eye-hand-foot coordination than Hopkins on the sidelines. Kenny Stills was a non-factor.
