  • Parris Campbell Out Indefinitely With MCL, PCL Injury

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (knee) suffered a sprained MCL and PCL in his knee in the Week 2 win over the Vikings that is expected to keep him out indefinitely, according to a source. With all the season-ending injuries that popped up in Week 2 across the league, you might say that Campbell dodged a bullet here after being carted off the field. Campbell has plenty of potential, but he only played in seven games in his rookie season due to injury. In what was a run-first offense against the Jets, rookie Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal should be in on three-receiver sets next to T.Y. Hilton for as long as Campbell is out. Pittman has more upside in the long term, but Pascal shouldn't be overlooked in the short term in deeper leagues.

  • Colts Defense Loses Malik Hooker For The Season

    Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles in the Week 2 win over the Vikings and will miss the rest of the season, according to a source. The first-round pick in 2017 has been injury prone in his career, which is why the team didn't pick up his fifth-year option. Hooker will finish the season with seven tackles (five solo) in two games. His absence for the rest of the season will surely weaken the Colts secondary, but their defense is still worth a play in Week 3 against a Jets offense that is among the worst in the league through two weeks.

  • Zach Pascal Catches Touchdown In Win

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal caught three balls for 19 yards and a touchdown in a win against the Vikings. Pascal has just seven targets over the first two weeks. The Colts are much higher on young receiversParris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr. Campbell was injured in Week 2, so this may open the door for Pascal to see more targets with Campbell out indefinitely. With this being said, Pascal has just two games in his career where he has over 100 yards. History suggests that even with more opportunity, Pascal does not hold much value in any fantasy lineup. He will match up against the Jets next week and is worth considering as a waiver pickup in deeper leagues if you're hurting at the position.

  • Mo Alie-Cox Goes For 111 Yards In Win

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox took advantage of his opportunity, grabbing five balls for a game-high 111 receiving yards in Week 2 against the Vikings. Alie-Cox was inserted in the starting lineup due to an injury to starting tight end Jack Doyle. This was just the fourth start of his three-year career, and it is the first time where he had over two catches in a game. It was a nice performance, but this is more of a statistical anomaly than something we can expect to see going forward. He will have a good matchup next week against the Jets, but do not expect to see the same performance, especially if Doyle returns to the fold.

  • Parris Campbell Avoids Torn ACL, To Have MRI Tomorrow

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (knee) did not tear his ACL in his team's Week 2 win over the Vikings. Campbell suffered a knee injury on a carry in the first quarter and was carted off the field. The team believes it's not a torn ACL, but Campbell will have an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury. The speedy playmaker had gotten off to a promising start in Week 1 with 71 receiving yards, so at least there's some hope that his season isn't lost. If Campbell is forced to miss time, fellow receivers T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal and Michael Pittman Jr. (toe) would see a boost in targets.

  • Jack Doyle Ruled Out For Week 2

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that tight end Jack Doyle (ankle, knee) is out for Week 2 against the Vikings. Doyle missed practice all week and will give way to Mo Alie-Cox as the team's starting tight end with Trey Burton already on Injured Reserve. Alie-Cox is a low-end TE2 to begin with, but on top of it, the Vikings were the best against opposing tight ends in 2019. When healthy, the 30-year-old Doyle is a low-ceiling TE2 in a Colts offense with plenty of mouths to feed, even after Marlon Mack's (Achilles) season-ending injury. He went for 49 yards in the season-opening loss to the Jaguars.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Lands On Injury Report

    Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (toe) was a limited practice participant on Thursday after not showing up on the injury report on Wednesday. Pittman should be good to go on Sunday against the Vikings as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. The talented big-bodied receiver played fewer snaps than Zach Pascal in the season opener, finishing with two catches for only 10 yards in his NFL debut. Even if tight end Jack Doyle (ankle, knee) doesn't play, Pittman is too far down the pecking order in Indy's passing game to be considered a viable fantasy starter in most leagues.

  • Jack Doyle Misses Another Practice

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (ankle, knee) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. The Pro Bowl tight end is now in serious doubt to play in Week 2 against the Vikings. With Trey Burton already on the shelf with an injury, Mo Alie-Cox would be forced into a starting role if Doyle can't suit up this weekend. Doyle played 54 offensive snaps in the Week 1 loss to the Jaguars and was targeted four times, finishing with three catches for 49 yards. For now, consider Doyle a very shaky TE2 this weekend. He'll need to get in at least a limited practice on Friday to have a shot at playing. Receivers T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. could see more targets if Doyle is inactive.

  • Colts Defense Has Bad Matchup In Week 2

    The Indianapolis Colts Defense allowed 27 points to Jacksonville in Week 1 and forced just one incompletion. They will face the Vikings this week, a team that scored 34 points and gained close to 400 total yards last week against the Packers. The Colts struggled against a rebuilding Jaguars offense, and Minnesota's is clearly far better. They will have to find ways to stop star running back Dalvin Cook and wide receiver Adam Thielen. The Vikings did not have long methodical drives but had a lot of chunk plays, averaging almost eight yards per play. The Colts defense is one of the lowest-priced defenses this week at $2,500 and should be considered a low-end starting defense in traditional leagues.

  • Jack Doyle Could Be Questionable For Week 2

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle(ankle, knee) did not practice on Wednesday and could be up in the air heading into Week 2. Doyle was held to three catches for 49 yards on four targets in Week 1 against the Jaguars. If Doyle can play this week, he will be facing a Vikings Defense that allowed just one catch to tight ends in Week 1. Part of that is a product of the Green Bay offense not targeting the tight end much. However, Doyle is not one of the more heavily targeted players in this offense with guys like T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell, Jonathan Taylorand Nyheim Hines. QuarterbackPhilip Rivers has built a good rapport with tight ends in the past, but he will need to build one with Doyle before considering Doyle a legitimate tight end option in fantasy lineups.

  • Nyheim Hines Looks To Build On Strong Week 1 Performance

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines had a good start to his 2020 season, finding the end zone twice and gaining 73 total yards. Head Coach Frank Reich stated that rookieJonathan Taylor will be the starting running back after Marlon Mack's (Achilles) injury, but also stated that Hines will see time on all downs. Hines showed how valuable he is in the passing game, catching eight passes on all eight of his targets. He also showed that he can pick up yards on the ground with an average of four yards per carry in Week 1. He enters this week with a DFS price of $5,300. He should not be considered an RB1 or RB2 due to not knowing the type of touches Taylor will see as the starter. However, he offers value in the flex position in a favorable Week 2 matchup against the Vikings, especially in PPR leagues.

  • Need To See More From Parris Campbell

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell had an encouraging Week 1, catching six balls for 71 yards on nine targets. Campbell showed in Week 1 why the Colts were so excited about him when they drafted him. While Week 1 was a solid performance, fantasy owners would be advised to wait on him a while before putting him in their starting lineups. Last week against the Jaguars was the most yards and targets he ever saw in an NFL game. The Vikings are certainly a favorable matchup this week, so he can build on his performance if he continues to see consistent targets. If he continues to show consistency, he can be a legitimate flex option in the future. Campbell has a DFS price of $4,500, so DraftKings agrees that he still needs to prove himself to be considered a legitimate fantasy starter.

  • T.Y. Hilton Draws Favorable Matchup Against Vikings

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton looks to bounce back against the Vikings after a disappointing Week 1 performance. Hilton was only able to amass four catches for 53 yards on nine targets in a losing effort against the Jaguars. He will look to bounce back this week against a Minnesota team that struggled last week against Green Bay's No. 1 receiver Davante Adams. They surrendered a whopping 14 catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns against Adams. Hilton had two drops as well last week, so his fantasy day could have looked a little different if he grabbed those. He enters this week with a DFS price of $5,700 and should be considered a good WR2 option if he can convert some of those targets into catches.

  • Jonathan Taylor Stepping Into Starting Running Back Role

    Indianapolis Colts rookie running back Jonathan Taylor will be stepping into a starting role going forward, confirmed by Colts head coach Frank Reich. Taylor was not able to do much on the ground last week, picking up only 22 yards on nine carries. However, he was able to show that he can be an asset in the passing game, grabbing six balls for 67 yards. Marlon Mack's (Achilles) injury has given Taylor the opportunity to see more of the workload rather than splitting carries. He will be facing a Minnesota Vikings Defense that allowed 158 yards and one touchdown on the ground last week. Reich confirmed that Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins will also be part of the mix, but Taylor getting the nod should give him solid RB2 value this week against a Vikings team that struggled against the run in Week 1.

    Sep 16 · Source via Colts Jonathan Taylor
  • Philip Rivers Has Favorable Matchup In Week 2

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers will face off against the Minnesota Vikings Defense in Week 2. The Vikings defense surrendered over 300 yards and four touchdowns last week to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Vikings were also unable to force any turnovers and did not sack the Packers quarterback one time. Rivers threw for over 300 yards with one touchdown last week against the Jaguars. He also threw two interceptions, and that hurt what could have been a very solid fantasy day. He threw the ball 46 times, and we can expect Rivers to throw it a lot again against a depleted Vikings secondary. This will give him another good opportunity to rack up plenty of yards and touchdowns. He has a DFS price of $5,900, and this could be a good value pick if he limits the mistakes.

  • Marlon Mack Out For Season With Torn Achilles

    Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (Achilles) will officially miss the rest of the 2020 season after suffering a torn Achilles in the Week 1 loss to the Jaguars. Mack had four carries for 26 yards and three catches for 30 yards before leaving with the injury in the second quarter. It comes after he rushed for 1,091 yards in a breakout 2019 season. Mack has never played a full 16-game slate in his four years in the NFL, and he's set to become a free agent in 2021. Nyheim Hines and rookie Jonathan Taylor each had 15 touches on Sunday, with Taylor earning 89 scrimmage yards and Hines going for 73 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns while getting a lot of red-zone action. Hines will be one of the hottest waiver pickups heading into Week 2, while Taylor will basically be a must-start RB2 from here on out.

  • Marlon Mack May Have Torn Achilles

    The Indianapolis Colts fear that Marlon Mack suffered a torn Achilles on Sunday. If so, his 2020 season will be over. Nyheim Hines took on a larger role with Mack gone, working as a receiving back as expected but also seeing goal line work. Both Hines and rookie Jonathan Taylor would see their value jump up if Mack's season is over, with Hines being one of the top waiver priority for fantasy managers this week. Meanwhile, Taylor likely takes over as the lead back earlier than expected and should be a weekly start running behind a good offensive line.

  • Marlon Mack Suffers Non-Contact Injury

    Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (foot) suffered a potential foot/ankle injury midway through the second quarter against the Jaguars on Sunday. The veteran was carted back to the locker room, and with this injury being of the non-contact variety, it certainly doesn't look promising for Mack's outlook for the foreseeable future. His status for the remainder of the game and the season, for that matter, is uncertain at the moment. Nyheim Hines, who has two touchdowns already, and rookie Jonathan Taylor, will both likely pick up some extra work.

  • Marlon Mack Helped To The Sidelines With Ankle Injury

    Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (ankle) was helped to the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury in the second quarter of today's game. He had four carries for 26 yards and three catches for 30 yards before the injury. Early indications are that it's nothing major as he was taken to the bench first, rather than the pop-up tent. Rookie Jonathan Taylor could get a chance to make some plays if Mack misses a few drives or more.

  • Quenton Nelson Misses Practice Thursday

    Indianapolis Colts All-Pro left guard Quenton Nelson (back) did not practice on Thursday. Left tackle Anthony Castonzo (oblique) and center Ryan Kelly (knee) were both limited participants for the second straight day. Castonzo and Kelly should be fine for the season opener against the Jaguars in Week 1, but Nelson's status is more up in the air. Both running backs Marlon Mack and rookie Jonathan Taylor should see action in a plus matchup against a suspect Jacksonville defense, but not having Nelson up front would certainly be a downgrade for both the running game and new quarterback Philip Rivers. Mack and Taylor are both solid RB2s for this matchup, while Rivers could be a sneaky QB start in DFS.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Can Impact Colts Immediately

    Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will make his NFL debut on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pittman was selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft and has the potential to make an immediate impact. He already has an NFL-sized body and showed at USC that he can play physical, run precise routes and is sure-handed. He will be competing with Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal for targets behind T.Y. Hilton. This is his first game, and he'll be going against a Jacksonville team that was 11th against the pass last season. He may not be a good lineup pick just yet, but he is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

  • Parris Campbell Looking For Strong Second Season

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell was limited in 2019 due to injury, playing in just seven games. The 2019 second-round draft pick comes into the season listed as the No. 2 receiver on the Colts depth chart. He has very good speed and will spend a lot of time as a slot receiver. It is difficult to say what to expect from him coming into the season since we did not see much of him last year. He may emerge as a legitimate flex option if he sees consistent targets, but it is best to keep him out of the your starting lineups in shallow leagues until he proves otherwise.

  • Jonathan Taylor Enters Season Splitting Workload

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor will play in his first NFL game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The second-round rookie out of Wisconsin enters this season with a lot of hype around him. Colts head coach Frank Reich plans on using a platoon system in the backfield with Taylor and Marlon Mack. Taylor showed off his explosive, downhill running at Wisconsin but will need to develop more as a pass-catcher to be an every-down back in the NFL. The Jaguars have a poor defense against the run, so Taylor enters the week with a favorable matchup. However, he will not see a heavy workload quite yet.

  • Jack Doyle Cleared To Play In Week 1

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle is not listed on the team's injury report and is set to go for Week 1. Doyle may see a fair amount of targets this week while facing a Jacksonville team that ranked 18th against opposing tight ends last season. Doyle comes off a season catching 43 balls for 448 yards and four touchdowns. Doyle is not a volume-based tight end and he only has one touchdown in 13 career games against the Jaguars. He may see an increased number of targets this season, especially with Trey Burton being out for the time being. However, he does not seem to be a viable TE1 option until he proves otherwise.

  • T.Y. Hilton Fully Healthy Entering 2020

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will start the 2020 season fully healthy after playing only 10 games in 2019. Last year was just the third time in Hilton's eight-year career in which he failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving. Hilton will enter the year as the clear No. 1 option at receiver in front of young talentsParris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr. He will match up against Jacksonville in Week 1, a team that ranked 11th against the pass last season. If Hilton shows he can be as productive as he was pre-injury, he will be a viable WR2 option in Week 1 for new quarterback Philip Rivers.

  • Marlon Mack Looks To Build On 2019 Performance

    Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack had a solid 2019 campaign, eclipsing 1,000 yards on the ground and picking up eight touchdowns. He enters this season as the No. 1 running back on the depth chart, but we can expect him to share time with rookie running backJonathan Taylor. Mack saw success against Jacksonville last season, picking up 186 yards and three touchdowns over two contests. Jacksonville ranks 28th against opposing running backs, so that suggests a favorable matchup for Mack. He should be a good RB2 option this week, but his upside is lower with Taylor now in the picture.

  • Philip Rivers Looks To Rebound In Indianapolis

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers had a tough 2019 season in Los Angeles, going 5-11 and finishing with the second-worst quarterback rating of his career. He will get a fresh start in Indianapolis, where he inherits one of the best offensive lines in football. Rivers' lack of mobility at his age makes protection even more important. He will face a rebuilding Jacksonville team in Week 1 that ranked in the bottom 20 in yards and points against last season. Rivers has seen a lot of success against Jacksonville over his career, with 24 touchdowns, five interceptions and a passer rating of 119.1. Rivers should be considered an under-the-radar QB1 option this week.
