  Colts | Zach Pascal listed as questionable    Fri Sep 18, 05:36 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18, but is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Pascal could be close to a full-time player this week with Michael Pittman also banged up, but he has to be active first. Ashton Dulin and Daurice Fountain are the next men up at wide receiver.

  Colts | Michael Pittman Jr. uncertain for Week 2    Fri Sep 18, 02:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (toe) had an 'incident' with his toe in practice earlier this week, and the team appears to be willing to make him a game-time decision for Week 2 versus the Minnesota Vikings, according to Andrew Walker of the team's website.

Footballguys view: Zach Pascal could be close to a full-time player this week and TY Hilton and Parris Campbell will be full time players with the Colts tight ends also depleted. Hilton and Campbell are strong WR2 plays against a poor Vikings secondary.

  Colts | Jack Doyle to sit Week 2    Fri Sep 18, 02:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Mo Alie-Cox is a basketball convert who could be ready for his breakout this week against the Vikings. He's worth adding in deep dynasty TE premium leagues and worth monitoring in all leagues because of Philip Rivers penchant for throwing to the tight end.

  Colts | Michael Pittman listed as limited    Thu Sep 17, 04:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: We like the Colts rookie receiver in dynasty formats. It's a different story in re-draft leagues unless injuries strike above Pittman on the depth chart.

  Colts | Indianapolis giving Lamar Miller a look    Mon Sep 14, 05:08 PM

Free-agent RB Lamar Miller worked out for the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: The Colts lost Marlon Mack to an Achilles' injury and are in the market for help at the position. They have a stacked running back room with rookie Jonathan Taylor, pass-catching back Nyheim Hines and reserve Jordan Wilkins. Miller worked with the Patriots in training camp but did not do enough to make the final roster.

  Colts | Jonathan Taylor moves into starting lineup    Mon Sep 14, 04:14 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor will take over as the starting running back following the season-ending injury to Marlon Mack in Week 1, according to head coach Frank Reich, who added Jordan Wilkins will also have a role.'Jonathan (Taylor) will step into the starting role ... He's ready. Nyheim (Hines) will still be a big part of the offense.'

Footballguys view: Taylor shouldered a huge load for the Badgers when he was in college. Doing the same thing in the NFL will not be too much for the rookie with star potential. Hines isn't going anywhere and could have a large role as a runner and receiver out of the backfield even though he's not the starter.

  Colts | Marlon Mack's season over    Mon Sep 14, 11:21 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles') will miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a torn Achilles'.

Footballguys view: It's a sad ending for Mack's season as he's been a solid player for the Colts for years. Now, the team moves on with rookie Jonathan Taylor as a power back and veteran Nyheim Hines as a primary receiving threat out of the backfield who can do more as a runner too.

  Colts | Marlon Mack may have torn Achilles    Sun Sep 13, 03:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) left the Week 1 game early, and the team fears that Mack suffered a torn Achilles tendon, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Obviously Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines stock both take a big leap on this news. This is sad because Mack is heading to free agency next year and might have to wait a while to get signed. Jordan Wilkins becomes the #2 early down back on this news.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (unknown) was not spotted at the team's practice Friday, Sept. 11. A team beat reporter, though, speculated that it could simply be a rest day for Hilton as Friday is typically a day when Indianapolis veterans rest.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said Thursday, Sept. 10, that he feels as healthy as he's been since 2016 when he led the league with 1,448 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: Going up against the Jaguars in Week 1, Fantasy GMs are expecting the Colts offense to go off. Hilton is a low-end WR2 or flex play this week. We'll see how new QB Philip Rivers meshes with Hilton, especially with his deep speed and playmaking ability.

  Colts | IR stint ahead for Trey Burton    Mon Sep 7, 05:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (calf) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 7.

Footballguys view: Burton was initially going to be out only a couple of weeks at the start of the regular season. Putting him on IR means the earliest he can return to the field is Week 4. Jack Doyle is the lead tight end for the Colts and is a TE2 with upside. Mo Alie-Cox should get some more work with Burton down for the first month of the season if not more.
