T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/20/17 10:35am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is 'one of the best players the NFL' and coaches need to do a better job using the scheme in order to get him the ball more often, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Hilton was held to one catch for 19 yards during Week 6 in a plus-matchup against the Tennessee Titans. This week's opponent, the Jacksonville Jaguars, have shut down just about every passing game they have encountered, so it will be interesting to see if the Colts try to force the issue with Hilton. Given the difficult matchup, Hilton is more of a WR3 this week.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/20/17 2:04pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Gore will be sharing work with Marlon Mack this week but should continue to receive a majority of the work. He has posted consistent numbers this season but has not rushed for more than 60 yards in any game and is not a must-start option for owners.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 10/19/17 10:19am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack will be given more opportunities due to the loss of RB Robert Turbin (elbow), according to offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. Chudzinski specifically noted the two-minute drill as a time when the Colts need to give Mack the ball.
Huddle Up: Mack should have been seeing more touches anyway, but Turbin's unfortunate demise has forced Indy's hand. Mack is arguably the Colts' best playmaker on offense not named T.Y. Hilton. Look for him to be more involved in the passing game, too.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/19/17 2:22pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Gore will continue to be the starting running back for the Colts but could lose some work to Marlon Mack later in the season. He has received at least 10 carries in every game this season but 57 yards is the most he has rushed for in a game this season. He can be benched this week if owners have better options available.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/19/17 7:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore said he and RB Marlon Mack complement each other well because they are 'different kinds of backs.'
Huddle Up: The Colts face a leaky Jacksonville Jaguars run defense in Week 7, but Gore and Mack are merely flex candidates. Gore has the safer floor, but Mack is the upside play and the better long-term prospect.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/18/17 1:43pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has developed soreness in his surgically repaired shoulder. He was given a cortisone shot and will rest this week. There is no timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Not too sound too poetic, but UGH. The frustrations with Luck and his long-awaited return will not cease. The good news is that Luck's replacement, Jacoby Brissett, has held his own as the Colts' starter. That being said, Brissett should only be started in quality matchups and/or as a bye-week replacement.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/18/17 5:49pm ET
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) potentially missing the rest of the season wouldn't be a surprise, according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, 'based on what we heard (Wednesday, Oct. 18).'
Huddle Up: Those who drafted the former No. 1 overall pick as their fantasy quarterback this season had to expect a lengthy absence, but certainly not one that would sideline Luck for the entire year. It's a tough break, but that's the baggage that can come with drafting someone that is already severely injured. Jacoby Brissett has looked mostly serviceable in his absence, though he's more of an option for deeper leagues.
Robert Turbin - RBPosted 10/17/17 3:37pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) is expected to miss the rest of the season with an arm injury he suffered against the Tennessee Titans Monday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Paging Marlon Mack, Mr. Marlon Mack. Frank Gore will start as long as he's healthy, but Mack has made his playmaking ability evident and appears to be making a strong case to take over for Gore whenever that time may be. Mack should be added and stashed if he's available.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/16/17 9:51pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton recorded just one catch from his four targets for a mere 19 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Yuck. This was Hilton's worst game of the season, and it was also the third time in six games that he was held under 50 receiving yards. Clearly, the 27-year-old will benefit greatly when Andrew Luck (shoulder) is ready to return, but that could still be several weeks away. In the meantime, Hilton has become a boom-or-bust WR2 with Jacoby Brissett under center.
Jacoby Brissett - QBPosted 10/16/17 9:44pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett completed 21 of 37 pass attempts for 212 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Tennessee Titans. He also added 15 rushing yards on five carries.
Huddle Up: Owners who were rolling with Brissett on Monday night in hopes of him causing havoc with his scrambling ability may have come away a little disappointed with this stat line, but it really wasn't a bad night at all for the 23-year-old, as he didn't turn the ball over. Brissett is a fine QB option to stream for bye weeks, but that's really about it, especially with Andrew Luck set to return sooner than later.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 10/16/17 9:57pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle recorded seven grabs for 50 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, opposite the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Overall, Doyle drew a season-high 11 targets from Jacoby Brissett, making it easier for him to post his biggest stat line of the campaign. He hasn't quite developed into the TE1 that some were pegging him to be after his breakout a year ago, but he can still be a solid option in certain spots. His production should also become more consistent once Andrew Luck (shoulder) returns.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 10/16/17 10:21pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack received just two carries, turning that pair of rush attempts into 18 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Tennessee Titans. He also failed to haul in either of his two targets through the air.
Huddle Up: Yikes, so much for the Colts getting Mack more work after his big game in Week 5. Luckily for the rookie and his owners, though, Robert Turbin (elbow) looks like he's going to miss at least a few weeks, so Mack should immediately get more work again as early as next week. It's just hard to trust him as a FLEX outside of the deepest formats after tonight's stinker.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/16/17 10:06pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore logged 49 rushing yards on 10 carries in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Tennessee Titans. He also caught two of his three targets for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: It wasn't exactly a dud of a performance, as Gore did total 67 yards collectively, but it wasn't anything special either, which has become typical for the former 49er. Gore probably deserved more work, given his 4.9 yards-per-carry average, but the Titans fell behind early in the fourth and went with their passing game more as a result. He's still a decent FLEX option for most formats, but he can be more impactful once Andrew Luck (shoulder) gets back.
Jacoby Brissett - QBPosted 10/14/17 1:04pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (wrist) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Brissett has played well at times as the starting quarterback but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues this week against the Tennessee Titans.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/14/17 1:33pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Gore will receive a majority of the carries this week but has not rushed for more than 57 yards in any game this season. He can be a flex option in deeper leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options available.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 10/14/17 1:28pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion, neck) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Doyle will return after a one-game absence and should have a solid role in the passing game against the Tennessee Titans. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 10/14/17 6:56pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack would have had a bigger role in the offense earlier in the year if not for some injuries, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. 'I think it'd be wise to try to find ways to get him the football and get him more involved,' Pagano said. 'When he gets outside on the perimeter he's dangerous, and we all saw that.'
Huddle Up: Mack had nine carries for 91 yards in Week 5, and he is easily the most explosive back the Colts have. He will be a risky start in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans, but the needle is pointing up for the rookie, and he should be owned in all formats.
Jacoby Brissett - QBPosted 10/13/17 1:28pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Brissett is on track for another start and has done a decent job since taking over the starting job. He threw for 317 yards in Week 5 and has accounted for five total touchdowns over the last three games. He can be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues but should not be a starting option this week.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/13/17 1:23pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Gore will remain the starting running back for now but may lose more touches to Marlon Mack as the season goes on. He has been consistent in terms of his stats but has rushed for more than 50 yards in only one game this season. He could be a flex option in some leagues, but is not a weekly starting option.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 10/13/17 1:29pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion, neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Doyle appears to be on track to play against the Tennessee Titans as long as he does not suffer a setback. He has been targeted at least five times in each of his last three games but has been held to under 30 yards in each of the last two games. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can keep Doyle on the bench.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 10/13/17 8:47pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief said he'd like to remain with the team next season but isn't worried about his impending free agency.
Huddle Up: Wherever Moncrief ends up next year, he will likely need a strong quarterback to produce relevant numbers. He has barely been involved in the offense this year, managing just 11 catches through five games. Until Andrew Luck returns, he isn't worth starting.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/12/17 9:24am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will begin taking 7-on-7 repetitions in practice this week with the scout team, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: He's still a few weeks away. Jacoby Brissett has just two touchdown passes in four full games this season. He did throw for 314 yards last week in the overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers. He has a favorable matchup against the Tennessee Titans this week, who are in the bottom five of the league at defending the position this year. He's a sneaky flex option this week.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 10/12/17 10:23am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not being hurried into a featured role, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Mack has only played in three games this season due to a shoulder injury and Pagano doesn't want to rush him into something he's potentially not ready for.
Huddle Up: Remember that Mack is only a rookie, so he has just three professional games under his proverbial belt. He has shown flashes of being the future of the Colts' backfield, though, and deserves more opportunities. For now, keep Mack on the bench until he's given more touches on a consistent basis.
Jacoby Brissett - QBPosted 10/12/17 1:13pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (wrist) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Brissett is coming off his best outing of the season heading into what could be his last start of the year. He has one of the best matchups of the week, too, against the Tennessee Titans and makes for a sneaky start in Week 6.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 10/12/17 1:17pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion, neck) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Doyle has done nothing so far to prove that he needs to be started, at least not without Andrew Luck. Keep benching Doyle until Luck's long-awaited return. Even then, Doyle will be a fringe TE1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/9/17 1:35pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for the team's Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Luck may be able to do some things during practice this week but still appears to be weeks away from playing in a game. Jacoby Brissett will continue to be the starting quarterback for the Colts, but owners should be able to find better options for their starting lineups.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/8/17 7:09am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for at least one more month despite returning to practice on a limited basis earlier this week.
Huddle Up: Luck is a few weeks away from being able to string together several practice sessions as a full participant, which would be the final step on the road to recovery before seeing game action. However, it is an encouraging sign that Luck made it through the initial throwing program without experiencing any setbacks. Jacoby Brissett will continue to serve as the Colts' quarterback in his absence but can be avoided in most fantasy formats.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 10/8/17 7:36pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted three catches for just 32 yards on his three targets in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has been limited to 44 or fewer receiving yards, and he has been targeted exactly three times in each of the past three games. He appears to be 100 percent healthy, but he just doesn't seem to have the same rapport with Jacoby Brissett like T.Y. Hilton has developed.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/8/17 7:36pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted seven receptions for a game-high 177 yards on nine targets in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Hilton has jelled rather nicely with Jacoby Brissett, posting 153 or more yards in two of his past three outings while totaling 17 receptions over his past three games. The Redskins have a so-so passing defense, so Hilton could have another big game in Week 6 in D.C.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/8/17 7:35pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 48 yards in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added three grabs for 38 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Gore was stuck mostly in neutral if you take out his big run of 16 yards, which is likely why Marlon Mack saw 10 total touches. The rookie out of South Florida was more explosive. It's a situation worth monitoring heading into Week 6 and beyond.
