  • Colts Add Phillip Lindsay To Active Roster

    The Indianapolis Colts elevated running back Phillip Lindsay from their practice squad to the active roster for Thursday night's game against his former team, the Denver Broncos, according to a source. With Jonathan Taylor (ankle) ruled out for Week 5, Lindsay will make his Colts debut and could have a role alongside pass-catching back Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson. The former undrafted running back had 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons with Denver but then quickly fell out of favor and was released. He had 88 carries for 249 yards and a touchdown in 14 games with the Texans and Dolphins in 2021. Lindsay could factor in on early downs against Denver on Thursday, but he's not a recommended option in starting fantasy lineups in his first game with Indy.

  • Mo Alie-Cox A Touchdown-Dependent Option For Week 5

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox finally put together a strong performance during the last week's contest. He hauled in all six of his targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in their loss. However, Alie-Cox offered very little to the offense before that breakout performance. That being said, it's going to be tough to trust him heading into the Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Fantasy managers should consider Alie-Cox a touchdown-dependent option for this week.

  • Parris Campbell Barely On The Fantasy Radar

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell was expected to have a big role on this team coming into the season. However, the 25-year-old has nine receptions for 90 yards in the first four games of the season. He is looking like a distant third receiver to Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce. That being said, it's tough to imagine Campbell having much fantasy value right now. Possibly, there is more action in the passing game with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) out for Week 5. However, most fantasy managers should be able to find a more reliable option than Campbell. He's not a recommended streaming option for the Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos.

  • Alec Pierce Has Low-End Flex Appeal

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce is coming off a decent three-catch performance in Week 4. He could see an increased workload with featured back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) on the sideline. That being said, the Colts will likely need to lean on the passing game more against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. All of the pressure will be on Michael Pittman Jr. because he'll be the Colts best offensive player. That being said, Pierce could have a chance to make some big plays with little focus on him. The Broncos secondary is fairly strong, but Pierce still makes for a possible low-end flex option in PPR formats.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. A Low-End WR2 Versus Broncos

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. is likely to be the focal point of this offense heading into their Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Star running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) has already been ruled out for this contest. That being said, Pittman is likely going to get plenty of targets with the Colts unlikely to be able to run the ball successfully. However, the Broncos secondary has been solid this season and they will know Pittman is the Colts favorite receiver. It could be tough for Pittman to get open without Taylor making waves on the ground. Fantasy managers should consider Pittman a low-end WR2 for this game.

  • Nyheim Hines Jumps On The Flex Radar

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines will be the featured back for the upcoming matchup against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. Star back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is sidelined, so Hines will be asked to step up here. The expectation is that Phillip Lindsay and possibly Deon Jackson would see carries behind Hines. However, Hines remains the most attractive fantasy option out of the bunch. He already had some PPR value because of his pass-catching ability. Now, he could actually sneak his way into flex value in most formats for this week.

  • Matt Ryan Likely To Struggle Versus Broncos

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan is coming off his strongest game of the season in Week 4. He has thrown for over 350 passing yards in two of the first four games. He'll likely be asked to pass the ball often this week with star running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) sidelined. At first glance, Ryan should have increased passing numbers this week because Taylor is out. Although, it's worth noting that the Denver Broncos do have a strong defense. They will know the Colts will need to lean on the passing game, which could lead to problems for Indy. Ryan will be a low-end QB1 at best for this upcoming Thursday night matchup.

  • Phillip Lindsay Could Have The Most Carries In Week 5

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) won't play in the Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Without their superstar running back, the Colts will rely on Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson, and Phillip Lindsay. While Hines is the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, Lindsay could lead the team in rushing attempts this week. Indianapolis might want to keep Hines in his hybrid receiving/running back role instead of increasing his work on the ground. Meanwhile, Jackson has two career rushing attempts, while Lindsay has two 1,000-yard seasons under his belt. Lindsay could potentially be a solid flex option for fantasy players this week.

  • Jonathan Taylor Ruled Out For Week 5 Matchup

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) will not play in Thursday night's matchup against the Denver Broncos. The star running back suffered an ankle injury late in the Colts' 24-17 Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans. While the third-year back hoped to play this week, the quick turnaround proved to be a problem. Without Taylor, the Colts will rely on a combination of Nyheim Hines, Deon Jacksonand Phillip Lindsay. Of the three, Hines has the most fantasy appeal, especially in PPR leagues. However, the matchup against Denver makes all three risky options, at best. Fantasy managers should instead look for another alternative to replace Taylor this week.

  • Shaquille Leonard Also Dealing With Broken Nose

    Indianapolis Colts All-Pro linebacker Shaquille Leonard (concussion, nose), who has already been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos after suffering a concussion in the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans, is also dealing with a broken nose. Head coach Frank Reich said the broken nose could impact his return to the lineup separately from the concussion, but the team can't determine that until the significant swelling subsides and doctors can see the extent of the damage. Leonard was making his season debut last Sunday after having offseason back surgery, and now he'll miss another game in Week 5 due to his concussion and broken nose. The 27-year-old won't be a lock to return in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Chase McLaughlin Signs With Colts

    The Indianapolis Colts signed kicker Chase McLaughlin from the practice squad on Tuesday and released Dezmon Patton in a corresponding move. McLaughlin appeared in 16 games for the Cleveland Browns in 2021 and has already kicked in three games for the Colts in 2022, hitting three of his four field goals. The veteran kicker will stick around as a more permanent member of the team, at least for the time being, as the Colts have called him up from the practice squad the maximum number of times in 2022. McLaughlin showed shaky accuracy with the Browns in 2021 and kicks for a Colts offense that has struggled, making him tough to trust in fantasy.

  • Jonathan Taylor Hoping To Play Thursday

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) told reporters that he is hoping to play through a sprained right ankle in Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos. Taylor twisted his ankle in a Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans and has been "rehabbing furiously" since the injury in attempts to get on the field for Thursday. "I definitely do plan to play, but if you can't go, you can't go," he told reporters on Tuesday. Taylor has not participated in either of his team's two practices this week. If Taylor does ultimately suit up, then he should be in fantasy lineups. If he sits, look for a combination of Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson, and Phillip Lindsay to split the backfield.

  • Jonathan Taylor Watching Tuesday's Walkthrough

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) was spotted watching Tuesday's walkthrough with a boot on his right foot as he continues to deal with an ankle sprain he suffered in Week 4. The Colts take on the Broncos on Thursday night, so Taylor's chances of playing on a short week seem to be less likely, but the Colts' coaching staff remains hopeful their stud running back can suit up. If he is to be held out of action, Nyheim Hines would be the most appealing option in the Colts' backfield, but we would likely be seeing a three-man committee that includes Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay.

  • Colts Hope Jonathan Taylor Can Play Thursday

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that the team hopes running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) can play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football after he suffered a sprained right ankle in the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Colts initially feared that Taylor suffered a high-ankle sprain, which almost certainly would have sidelined him this week and beyond, but his injury isn't as serious as initially believed and there's still a chance he could play on Thursday despite being listed as a DNP on Monday's estimated practice report. Taylor had over 100 yards rushing and a TD in Week 1, but he's been a disappointment since. He could be in danger of seeing limited snaps if he's active on Thursday against Denver. If he's out or limited, Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay could form a committee backfield.

  • Phillip Lindsay Could Get More Involved

    Indianapolis Colts running back Phillip Lindsay spent all the offseason with Indy before being a final cut during training camp. Now, Lindsay is back with the Colts and could start factoring into their gameplan. Head coach Frank Reich mentioned that Lindsay would begin getting into the equation, assuming Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is unable to play on Thursday Night Football. It's a short week, so the Colts might not want to push it with Taylor. Instead, Nyheim Hines and Lindsay would be the focal point in the backfield, assuming Taylor is out. It's hard to imagine Lindsay being a reliable streaming option against the tough Broncos defense.

  • Nyheim Hines Could Have Bigger Role In Week 5

    If Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is unable to play on Thursday night in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, pass-catching back Nyheim Hines would likely have an increased role out of the backfield. He has 17 catches through four games but has only eight carries for 11 yards on the ground. The Colts could also turn to Phillip Lindsay, who has spent the first four weeks on the practice squad. Deon Jackson would also see an elevated role behind Hines, but Indy's ground game has been abysmal to start the year, ranking just 27th despite the presence of Taylor, who ranks sixth in the league in rushing with 328 yards. If Taylor is inactive this week, Hines would be the most attractive Colts RB in fantasy, mostly in PPR formats.

  • Jonathan Taylor Has A Chance To Play Thursday

    Tests on Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) came back negative on Monday and he has a chance to play on Thursday night in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, according to a source. The team initially feared that Taylor had suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but it's now looking like he may have avoided a long-term injury. He was listed as DNP on the team's estimated practice report on Monday, and fantasy managers will have to keep a close eye on his status over the next couple of days. Even if Taylor is active, he could see fewer snaps, which would make him an extremely risky RB1. If Taylor is inactive this week, Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson would share backfield duties, with Phillip Lindsay likely being added to the active roster as additional depth.

  • Shaquille Leonard Won't Play Thursday Night

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich told reporters that linebacker Shaquille Leonard (concussion) is out for Thursday night against the Denver Broncos in Week 5. Leonard made his season debut in the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but he played only 16 defensive snaps before suffering a concussion and never returning to the contest. The 27-year-old All-Pro got a late start in 2022 due to a back injury, and now he'll miss his fourth game of the year this Thursday. Leonard has been a must-start IDP linebacker in recent seasons, but he's been struggling to stay on the field this year. He's still worth stashing in IDP leagues, though, and hopefully he'll be able to return in Week 6.

  • Jonathan Taylor Injury Believed To Be Minor

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) was believed to have possibly suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's contest. Luckily, the tests are coming back and the organization doesn't believe this is a long term issue. He could still miss time, but hopefully it won't be anything significant. He rushed 20 times for 42 yards during the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans. It remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to suit up for Thursday Night Football against the Denver Broncos. Otherwise, Nyheim Hines could be seeing an increased workload.

  • Jonathan Taylor To Undergo Further Testing

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) will undergo further testing to determine the severity of the ankle injury he suffered during the Week 4 loss to the Titans. Per The Athletic's Zak Keefer, the Colts fear Taylor is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which almost certainly would sideline him for the Thursday night game in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos and possibly longer. Before going down, Taylor received 20 carries on the day. However, he only had 42 yards to show for his efforts. Fantasy managers need to keep an eye on this situation, primarily since the Colts have a quick turnaround before heading to Denver for a Thursday Night Football showdown versus the Broncos. If Taylor can't suit up for that one, Nyheim Hines will be the No. 1 option on the depth chart. Deon Jackson, who has just two carries this season, may also get involved, although managers shouldn't look in his direction.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Has Quiet Day

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. didn't have quite the day he was hoping to during Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. He hauled in three of his six targets for 31 yards in the loss. Pittman could've salvaged his fantasy day with a touchdown, but couldn't haul in the targets in the red zone. It was a frustrating day for fantasy managers who have Pittman rostered. However, they should continue to ride with him as he should bounce back against the Denver Broncos next week.

  • Nyheim Hines Invisible In Loss

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines was expected to have some decent PPR value heading into this contest. However, the 25-year-old posted a dud in what ended up being a loss to the Tennessee Titans. Hines finished with one rushing attempt and two receptions for three yards in this contest. Stud back Jonathan Taylor absorbed a majority of the carries with 20 in this contest. The Colts didn't check it down often enough for Hines to have value in this one. It was a dud for Hines, but fantasy managers shouldn't give up on him. He should continue to have some low-end flex value in PPR formats going forward.

  • Matt Ryan Throws For Over 350 Yards In Loss

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan put together a fairly strong game through the air during Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. The veteran signal-caller completed 27-of-37 passing attempts for 356 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the loss. The stats make Ryan look better than he actually was during this contest. At this point, there's very little upside in his game with Michael Pittman Jr. as basically his only wide receiver. Ryan might fall into QB2 territory for the Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos.

  • Jonathan Taylor Questionable To Return Sunday

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is questionable to return against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. Taylor was inefficient when on the field, registering 20 carries for 42 rushing yards. He also lost a fumble in the contest. Nyheim Hines will handle rushing duties in Taylor's absence.

  • Shaquille Leonard Ruled Out With Concussion

    Indianapolis Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans. Leonard had missed the first three games of the season due to injury and now has his season debut cut short. Leonard could face an uphill battle to clear concussion protocol in time for Week 5 since the Colts play on Thursday night.

  • Shaquille Leonard Making Season Debut

    Indianapolis Colts outside linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) is officially active for the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans and will make his season debut. Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (elbow), who was also listed as questionable, is active. Leonard has been an All-Pro in three of his four NFL seasons, but he's dealt with injuries recently and could have his playing time limited in his first game of the year, which makes him a risky starting option in IDP lineups in Week 4. But the 27-year-old's return to the field is great news for the Colts defense against Tennessee.

  • Shaquille Leonard Trending In Right Direction For Week 4

    Indianapolis Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) "is the most hopeful he's been about playing" ahead of Week 4, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Leonard hasn't played in 2022 yet, but the defensive star believes his season debut will come against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He was listed as questionable for this week despite being a full participant in practice. Through 16 games last season, Leonard registered 122 tackles, eight forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and four interceptions.

  • Alec Pierce Has Possible Deep League Value

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce is coming off a strong 61-yard performance in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The rookie wideout has a chance to carry that momentum into the upcoming matchup against the Tennessee Titans. A defense that has struggled to contain wide receivers this season. The Colts don't have many reliable wideouts on this roster. Pierce has a chance to become the No. 2 option in Indy. He's not a great fantasy option right now, but does have potential. Pierce should be considered a flex option in deep leagues, but probably isn't worth starting outside of that.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Has Low-End WR1 Value In Week 4

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. has caught 17 of 22 targets for 194 yards and one touchdown through two games this season. The Colts don't have many reliable options on offense, so Pittman is going to be targeted heavily. That being said, Pittman should be in for another big game against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. A defense that has allowed six touchdowns to wideouts already. Fantasy managers should consider Pittman a low-end WR1 for this upcoming matchup.

    Sep 30 · Source via Colts Michael Pittman
  • Nyheim Hines A Possible RB3

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has seen significant involvement in the passing game this season. Through three games, Hines has 15 receptions on 17 targets for 110 yards with 11 additional yards on the ground. Hines is barely involved in the rushing game, but still has value because of his impact in the passing game. Quarterback Matt Ryan should continue to trust Hines as a pass catcher. That being said, Hines carries possible RB3 value in PPR formats for the upcoming matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Matt Ryan A Borderline QB1

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan had a nice bounce back outing against the Kansas City Chiefs last week. He completed 27-of-37 passing attempts for 222 passing yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the win. The 37-year-old has been off to a shaky start in Indy, but hopefully this is a turning point for him. He's heading into a matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. A defense that is allowing 28 points per game this season. Ryan should be considered a borderline QB1 for this matchup.

  • Jonathan Taylor Good To Go Against Titans

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (toe) will not carry an injury designation into the team's Week 4 AFC East showdown with the Tennessee Titans. Taylor missed practice on Wednesday but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday, so his availability was never really in doubt. He has not been the league-winning asset fantasy managers expected so far this season but has a great opportunity to get rolling on Sunday against a Titans defense that is surrendering the seventh-most PPR fantasy points to opposing running backs through three weeks. Continue to start Taylor as a surefire RB1.

  • Shaquille Leonard Questionable In Week 4

    Indianapolis Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 4 divisional matchup with the Titans. Leonard hasn't played this season but has been able to get in quite a bit of practice time in his efforts to get fully healthy. The Colts have taken a cautious approach after their Pro-Bowl linebacker had back surgery in the offseason, as he was ruled out well before kickoff through the first three games of the season. His questionable tag is an upgrade heading into Week 4, as it looks like there is a good chance Leonard makes his season debut after "three pretty good days of practice."

  • Jonathan Taylor Back At Practice

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (toe) was back at practice on Thursday after missing the first practice of his career on Wednesday for precautionary reasons. Taylor suffered the minor toe injury during the team's Week 3 upset victory over the Chiefs, but this doesn't look like something that is going to have an impact on his production moving forward. Taylor has got off to a bit of a slow start this season, but fantasy managers shouldn't be worried. The 23-year-old has averaged 20.3 carries and 4.3 targets per game, making him an elite RB1 option in Week 4 as the Colts face the divisional rival Titans at home.

  • Jonathan Taylor Misses Practice But Expected To Play

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday, but it was reportedly for precautionary reasons after Taylor had some soreness coming out of the Week 3 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. "He'll be ready to roll," a source said about his availability for Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans. Fantasy managers should have the 23-year-old available for this weekend, but his practice status is worth watching the rest of the week. Taylor is a must-start whenever he's active, but it's possible that he could be somewhat limited against Tennessee if his toe is still bothering him. If Taylor were to ever miss any time, Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson would split Indy's backfield work.

  • Alec Pierce Goes Over 60 Yards

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce made his return to the field during the Week 3 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed Week 2 due to a concussion, but made sure to make an impact in his return. In Week 3, Pierce finished with three receptions on five targets for 61 yards in the win. The rookie wideout was finally able to make some noise on the field. Hopefully, Pierce will be able to carry this success over into his next few contests. Although, fantasy managers shouldn't have much faith in the anyone outside of Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor on this offense. Pierce is worth holding in dynasty formats, but can be avoided basically everywhere else.

  • Parris Campbell Posts Dud In Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell has seen very little success early in the season. In Week 3, Campbell hauled in both of his targets for 10 yards in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Through three games, Campbell has five receptions for 47 yards, which is pretty sad. He was expected to compete for the No. 2 wideout spot, but clearly Campbell isn't going to be heavily involved in this passing attack. Fantasy managers should be able to find a more reliable option in basically all fantasy formats.

  • Jelani Woods Snags Two Touchdowns

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Jelani Woods didn't see a target through the first two games of the season. However, the third-round rookie was able to get involved during Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Woods hauled in both of his targets for 13 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Sadly for him, Woods is playing in a three-man committee with Mo Alie-Cox and Kylen Granson. It's unlikely that he has weekly fantasy value, but this was a nice outing for the rookie tight end.

  • Nyheim Hines Has Five Catches In Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has seen very little action on the ground this season. A bulk of the touches goes to Jonathan Taylor, but Hines continues to get involved through the air. On Sunday, Hines hauled in five of his six targets for 23 yards in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Through three games, Hines has seen at least five targets in all of those contests. That being said, he should be able to hold RB3 value in PPR formats going forward. He'll be worth considering as a flex play in PPR leagues for the Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

    Sep 26 · Source via Colts Nyheim Hines
  • Matt Ryan Tosses Two Touchdowns In Win

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan got back on track versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3. The 37-year-old had arguably the worst start of his career in Week 2, but turned it around here. Ryan completed 27-of-37 passing attempts for 222 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception in the victory. It wasn't pretty, but Ryan was able to get the job done this week. Although, Ryan is going to have suspect fantasy value going forward. It's honestly tough to even consider him a low-end QB1 for his upcoming matchup against the Tennessee Titans. There should be better options available in most 12-team re-draft formats.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Goes For 72 Yards In Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. caught eight of his nine targets for 72 yards in a 20-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3. Pittman bounced back nicely after missing his team's Week 2 game with a quad injury. The third-year wideout has been hot to start the season, having caught 17 passes for 193 yards and a score in just two games. He will be a low-end WR1 in Week 4 when the Colts take on the Tennessee Titans at home.

  • Jonathan Taylor Quiet In Week 3 Win

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor carried the ball 21 times for 71 yards and added three catches for 20 yards in a 20-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3. Taylor's longest run went for 13 yards on an afternoon where the Chiefs did a decent job limiting him. The veteran running back has now carried the ball 61 times for 286 yards and one touchdown while adding another 43 yards on eight catches. Taylor will be a solid RB1 in Week 4 when he takes on the Tennessee Titans at home.

  • Ashton Dulin A Shaky Option For Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Ashton Dulin has surprisingly played well through the first two weeks of the season. Last week, Dulin finished with five receptions on seven targets for 79 yards in the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts were without Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) which is why Dulin likely saw an increase in targets. He has eight receptions for 125 yards on the season, which isn't too bad. However, Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, and Pittman are likely going to see the bulk of action in this offense. Dulin has some deep league appeal, but is tough to trust right now. It's uncertain if he'll continue to have a decent role with Pittman back in Week 3.

  • Parris Campbell An Avoidable Option For Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell posted a dud in the shutout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. The 25-year-old finished with zero receptions on two targets in the loss. This was frustrating for many fantasy managers who figured Campbell would have a big game with Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) sidelined. Now, Pittman is expected to return for the Week 3 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. A bulk of the passing targets are likely going towards Pittman, which shouldn't surprise anyone. That being said, Campbell shouldn't be trusted in most formats right now. He'll be a desperation option in deep leagues, but there should be better options available.

    Sep 24 · Source via Colts Parris Campbell
  • Nyheim Hines Has Low-End Flex Value

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has been active as a pass-catcher this season. Through two games, Hines has 10 receptions for 87 yards, but has done very little on the ground. Almost all the carries go to superstar running back Jonathan Taylor, which makes sense. Obviously, the Colts are going to want to pound the ball when they have a talent such as Taylor. Now, Hines is basically a one-dimensional player because of it. He'll be able to hold low-end value in PPR leagues most weeks because of his ability to catch passes in the backfield. He should remain on the radar as a low-end flex play in PPR formats for the Week 3 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Jonathan Taylor Should Return To Form

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor wasn't seen much last week in the shutout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The superstar back finished with 54 rushing yards on nine attempts in the loss. On paper, Taylor still managed to get six yards per attempt, but didn't get as many carries as he wanted. The 23-year-old should see more action in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Colts might focus on the running game more due to the struggles of quarterback Matt Ryan. Indy will need to keep the ball away from Patrick Mahomes if they want to win this one. Fantasy managers can plug Taylor back in as a RB1 for this matchup.

  • Matt Ryan Looks To Get Back On Track

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan put together one of his worst starts of his career last week. The veteran signal-caller threw three interceptions without a touchdown for 195 passing yards in the shutout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. To be fair, Ryan was without his top wide receiver in Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) last week. Luckily, Pittman is reportedly ready to go for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. A defense that has surprisingly played well through two games. This game could quickly get out of hand, which might actually help Ryan's fantasy numbers, assuming he can put together some garbage time scores. However, fantasy managers should consider Ryan a low-end QB1. Possibly, Ryan is able to turn it around with Pittman back on the field.

  • Shaquille Leonard Ruled Out For Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Leonard underwent offseason back surgery and hasn't played this season despite getting in some practice time the past couple of weeks. It looks like the Colts are taking an extremely cautious approach with their All-Pro linebacker, but the fact that he has been practicing suggests he has a shot at returning in Week 4.

  • Alec Pierce Will Play In Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce (concussion) has cleared concussion protocol and will play in Week 3. The Colts will now get back Michael Pittman Jr. (quadriceps) along with Pierce, in what should be a high-scoring affair with the Kansas City Chiefs. Pierce didn't record a catch on two targets in his NFL debut, so he is a hard player to trust in fantasy lineups given how involved Jonathan Taylor and Pittman Jr. will be in the offense. Fantasy managers should find better options to slot into their lineups until he can establish a prominent role as one of Matt Ryan's go-to pass-catchers.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Ready To Go For Week 3

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (quadriceps) is "ready to go" for the team's Week 3 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Frank Reich. Pittman was held out of action in Week 2, and the Colts' offense struggled mightily without their No. 1 wide receiver. They'll need all they can get out of him, as they will likely need to score a lot of points to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and company. Pittman can be locked into lineups as a low-end WR1 option this week, as he draws a solid matchup with a Chiefs defense that just allowed 113 yards and a touchdown to Mike Williams in Week 2.

  • Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce Practicing Thursday

    Indianapolis Colts wide receivers Michael Pittman Jr. (quadriceps) and Alec Pierce (concussion) participated in practice on Thursday once again after the two returned on Wednesday. Both were held out of action in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it looks like the Colts wide receiver duo has a good shot to return to action in Week 3. Pittman Jr. wouldn't comment on the status of his injury, so fantasy managers should keep an eye out for practice reports on Friday, and his game status leading up to Sunday. If he is able to return, fantasy managers can treat him as a low-end WR1 in a solid matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, who just gave up 113 yards and a touchdown to Mike Williams. Pierce, on the other hand, is off the fantasy radar in conventional-sized leagues
