2019 Fantasy Outlook
Brissett is now the Colts' starting QB following the abruot retirement of Andrew Luck in late August. The 26-year-old signal-caller has a full season as the team's starter under his belt, as he filled in for Luck in 2017, en route to logging 3,098 passing yards and a 13:7 TD:INT ratio to go along with 63 carries for 260 yards and four rushing scores. While he's not the passer Luck is and therefore not expected to come close to replicating the numbers of the player he replaces, it's reasonable to expect Brissett to put up more fantasy production this time around, protected by a strong offensive line and bolstered by a solid supporting cast the includes the likes of T.Y Hilton, Devin Funchess, Marlon Mack and tight ends Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.

Three TD passes in Week 2 win

September 15, 2019
Brissett completed 17 of 28 pass attempts for 146 yards and tossed three touchdowns to one interception during Sunday's 19-17 win against the Titans. He also contributed 25 rushing yards on seven carries and lost one fumble while absorbing a sack.
Brissett may have been held to fewer than 200 passing yards for the second straight game to kick off 2019, but he boasts a strong 5:1 TD:INT and led the Colts to points at every crucial juncture Sunday in a key intradivisional win against Tennessee. He isn't known for his rushing abilities, with a career average of fewer than 15 yards per game on the ground coming in, but picked up a key first down with his legs on an eventual scoring drive and registered one red zone carry against the Titans. He'll now shift focus to a Week 3 matchup against an Atlanta defense that only faced 10 passes from the Vikings in the season opener but allowed an ultra-efficient 80 percent completion rate, 9.8 yards per attempt and one touchdown on those attempts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Colts expect Andrew Luck to be ready for the season, but they insisted the same last year. After throwing at minicamp in June, he's on pace to be a participant at training camp and, beyond that, Week 1. If he's not ready for the opener, Brissett will be tapped again. A 2016 third-round pick, Brissett didn't put up great numbers last season, but he showed promise in a tough situation. He was sacked a league-high 52 times and had few playmakers to rely on in a run-first offense that limited his attempts per game to the fewest of any quarterback who made at least 13 starts (29.3). Brissett threw only seven interceptions, ranking sixth in interception percentage (1.5), and he was effective on the ground, averaging nearly 17 rushing yards per game and running for four touchdowns. The Colts reportedly turned down two trade offers this offseason to bring him back as Luck insurance. Brissett should at least have a better scheme in which to operate this year with new coach Frank Reich, the Eagles' offensive coordinator last season.
A third-round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Brissett finished up his rookie season with 34 completions on 55 attempts for 400 yards to go along with 16 carries for 83 yards and a TD over the course of three appearances (including two starts) for the team. Brissett seeing action last season wasn't how the Patriots drew up their game plan, but with starter Tom Brady suspended for the first four games of the season and Jimmy Garappolo subsequently injured, Brissett was unexpectedly called on. While he didn't throw any TD passes or picks during his stint behind center, the 24-year-old did gain some valuable NFL experience. Brissett ended up missing time last year after undergoing surgery on his right thumb in October but was eventually activated off IR by the Patriots in December in order to reprise his depth QB duties. With Garappolo still in the mix and Brady available from the get-go in 2017, Brissett remains the team's No. 3 QB option this season. The Patriots will continue to groom the North Carolina State product with an eye toward a future that may or may not include Garappolo remaining with the team. In any case, Brady, who turns 40 in August, can't play forever.
With starting QB Tom Brady set to sit out the first four games of the 2016 regular season, Brissett is on track to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup out of the gate. Once Brady returns in Week 5, Brissett is in line to return to third-string duties, but the rookie's training camp reps take on added importance, given the his elevated status he'll gain come Week 1. It's still possible that the Patriots could add a veteran signal-caller before then, but the fact that they haven't done so hints at the team's confidence in Brissett, whom the team took in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 91st overall.
