2010 Week 5 fantasy football preview with projections: Chiefs at Colts

If you’re a Colts fan, you may not want to look at the injury report this week. Every key offensive player, save for Peyton Manning, has a mark next to his name.

There are a lot of questionables and a couple outs, meanwhile they face a Chiefs team that is 4-0 and seeking it’s first win in Indianapolis. Ever.

The projections give the Chiefs the improbable 23.7-21.4 win. When was the last time you remember Peyton Manning losing two games in a row?

Matchups

Peyton Manning and the Colts create their own matchups.

The Chiefs are where things get interesting. There are 14 running backs in the NFL averaging more than 70 yards per game, the Chiefs have two of them. To put “Colts” and “run defense” next to each other would be a serious insult to “run defense.”

Expect fantasy-worthy games from both running backs.
