A month ago, the Denver Broncos hosting the Indianapolis Colts would have been a potential playoff preview. Now, we have a matchup between two disappointing teams that are scuffling offensively. Still, that doesn't mean there are major fantasy ramifications to consider with our Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 5.Denver's offense did show some signs of life last week but now has to move forward without star running back Javonte Williams. How will Nathaniel Hackett adjust his already scrutinized play-calling without Williams?The Colts will also be without their star running back, which certainly won't help an offense that has struggled and is turning the ball over way too often.The Broncos are 3.5-point favorites and the over/under stands at 42.5 points.Matchup

It's hard to believe that these are two of the three lowest-scoring teams in football. Indy's struggles start up front, as the Colts' offensive line ranks 27th in sack percentage. They haven't opened up any holes for the ground game and rank 30th in fourth-down conversion. How will tonight's  game go?
