Jacoby Brissett suffered a minor knee injury in Week 9, which forced him to make an early exit from the Colts' 26-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brissett is already back at practice and looks set to play in a Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins, a matchup that gives his fantasy football value a nice boost.

Brissett hasn't been worth consistently including in your fantasy lineup in one-QB leagues as part of the run-heavy Colts offense, but he's shown clear upside when he's got the right matchup. He eclipsed 20 fantasy points in three of the last five full games he's played (excluding last week), which were the three games he's played against opponents allowing top-eight fantasy numbers to opposing QBs.

The Dolphins fall right in with that group, allowing the sixth-most fantasy points while sitting dead-last in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings. This matchup is so good that, if Brissett sits, Brian Hoyer would become a solid option in two-QB and SuperFlex leagues, with even some viable streaming appeal in deeper one-QB leagues.

With Brissett looking more and more likely to play, he sits at QB9 in our Week 10 fantasy football rankings. Owned in just 49 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, that makes him another option as one of the top streaming QB options in Week.
