T.Y. Hilton

Indianapolis Colts

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Luck Ruled Out Week 2


Andrew Luck is unlikely to return until Week 4 at the earliest. It is advised to not play any players in lieu of Luck.

Fantasy Goo: With Luck likely to miss the first 4-6 weeks, Week 3 might be a good time to try to buy T.Y. Hilton low for a playoff run with the return of Luck hopefully coming soon.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Jack Doyle

Indianapolis Colts

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

No Luck for Week 1


Still no timetable for Andrew Luck he’s “in the training phase and will be OUT this week vs. Rams.” In another report, Colts GM Chris Ballard said C Ryan Kelly (foot) will miss just a "couple weeks." Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Moncrief Injures Shoulder

Here Comes Chester


Chester Rogers has been practicing with the first team offense as the WR3 for the past two days. If he wins the position, he has fantasy value, Moncrief is expected to play through injuries in a contract year, but has a history of injuries keeping him out.

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015


Everyone in the fantasy community has been chasing Luck's great 2014. This injury could speak measures to why he hasn't been producing at as high of a level. Colts typically are not totally forthcoming with injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

Luck Ruled Out Week 2


Andrew Luck is unlikely to return until Week 4 at the earliest. It is advised to not play any players in lieu of Luck.

Fantasy Goo: With Luck likely to miss the first 4-6 weeks, Week 3 might be a good time to try to buy T.Y. Hilton low for a playoff run with the return of Luck hopefully coming soon.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Jack Doyle

Indianapolis Colts

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion!

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

No Luck for Week 1

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned.

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Chester Rogers has been practicing with the first team offense as the WR3 for the past two days. If he wins the position, he has fantasy value, Moncrief is expected to play through injuries in a contract year, but has a history of injuries keeping him out.

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Chester Rogers has been practicing with the first team offense as the WR3 for the past two days. If he wins the position, he has fantasy value, Moncrief is expected to play through injuries in a contract year, but has a history of injuries keeping him out.

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Hardest Strength of Schedule for QBs


Based on Stagg Party's Strength of Schedule (aka SoS) for the v2 of the Pyro Draft Kit Andrew Luck and the Colts have the hardest SoS for QBs this season. Which doesn't bode well with his already PUP status. The Chiefs and Alex Smith have the second hardest schedule for passing QBs and Marcus Mariota has the 3rd worst schedule this season.

Fantasy Goo: I really look hard at SoS for any player, matchups are a huge part of the game.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Moncrief Injures Shoulder


Donte Moncrief suffered a mild AC sprain and is now considered day-to-day after falling on it in receiving drills.

Fantasy Goo: With Moncrief we don't really care for the mild shoulder injury, more important is getting Andrew Luck back into action. Moncrief value falls each day until Luck returns.

Here Comes Chester


Chester Rogers has been practicing with the first team offense as the WR3 for the past two days. If he wins the position, he has fantasy value, Moncrief is expected to play through injuries in a contract year, but has a history of injuries keeping him out.

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Chester Rogers has been practicing with the first team offense as the WR3 for the past two days. If he wins the position, he has fantasy value, Moncrief is expected to play through injuries in a contract year, but has a history of injuries keeping him out.

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

T.Y. Hilton

Indianapolis Colts

Hilton Ready To Explode in 2017


Only two receiver earned more yards on deep passes than Hilton did with 528. Hilton will be Andrew Luck’s WR1 and deep ball target, he can find the end zone on any play.

Fantasy Goo: T.Y. led the NFL in yards and was second in air yards last season and he did so on a season where his QB Andrew Luck had shoulder problems all year.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Worst Strength of Schedule for Quarterbacks


Based on Stagg Party's SoS from tab 5 (of 25) of our Pyro Fantasy Football Draft Kit, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts have the hardest schedule for any QB in 2017. Alex Smith and the Chiefs have the 2nd hardest, and Marcus Mariota of the Titans have the 3rd hardest schedule against passing defenses this season.

Fantasy Goo: With Andrew Luck starting training camp on the PUP, and the intel that he has a really difficult schedule this year – I'm getting a little cold on the Stanford QB. He's been on my team every year since being in the league, but injury plus tough schedule may not bode well for Andrew. Pick up our Draft Kit today: http://bit.ly/2017DraftKit-v2

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015


Everyone in the fantasy community has been chasing Luck's great 2014. This injury could speak measures to why he hasn't been producing at as high of a level. Colts typically are not totally forthcoming with injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

Indianapolis Colts

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Worst Strength of Schedule for Quarterbacks


Based on Stagg Party's SoS from tab 5 (of 25) of our Pyro Fantasy Football Draft Kit, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts have the hardest schedule for any QB in 2017. Alex Smith and the Chiefs have the 2nd hardest, and Marcus Mariota of the Titans have the 3rd hardest schedule against passing defenses this season.

Fantasy Goo: With Andrew Luck starting training camp on the PUP, and the intel that he has a really difficult schedule this year – I'm getting a little cold on the Stanford QB. He's been on my team every year since being in the league, but injury plus tough schedule may not bode well for Andrew. Pick up our Draft Kit today: http://bit.ly/2017DraftKit-v2

Frank Gore

Indianapolis Colts

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015


Everyone in the fantasy community has been chasing Luck's great 2014. This injury could speak measures to why he hasn't been producing at as high of a level. Colts typically are not totally forthcoming with injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

Indianapolis Colts

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015


Everyone in the fantasy community has been chasing Luck's great 2014. This injury could speak measures to why he hasn't been producing at as high of a level. Colts typically are not totally forthcoming with injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

Indianapolis Colts

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Jack Doyle

Indianapolis Colts

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Luck Playing With Shoulder Injury Since 2015


Everyone in the fantasy community has been chasing Luck's great 2014. This injury could speak measures to why he hasn't been producing at as high of a level. Colts typically are not totally forthcoming with injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Watch Luck's injury rehab closely. We could see Luck get back to his 2014 self, Colts should still look to upgrade their O-Line in the draft.

Indianapolis Colts

T.Y. ready to fly


T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Luck Ruled Out For Week 4 But Never Fear Brissett Is Here


Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Andrew Luck will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against Seattle. Jacoby Brissett will get his 3rd straight start and Scott Tolzien will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Goo: Brissett showed what he can bring to the table with mobility similar to Luck rushing for two touchdowns and hitting TY Hilton for a 61 yard score, although it was a sweet matchup against the Browns.
With Andrew already being ruled out Jacoby will get another shot to handle the starting spot but I would slow my roll as next up is the Seahawks which will be the real test.

Brissett will get the start this week. He did support a 100+ yard game for Martellus Bennett in his only start.

Fantasy Goo: Fade Colts until Luck returns, eyeing Week 4-6.

Luck Ruled Out Week 2


Andrew Luck is unlikely to return until Week 4 at the earliest. It is advised to not play any players in lieu of Luck.

Fantasy Goo: With Luck likely to miss the first 4-6 weeks, Week 3 might be a good time to try to buy T.Y. Hilton low for a playoff run with the return of Luck hopefully coming soon.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Jack Doyle

Indianapolis Colts

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

No Luck for Week 1

Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

T.Y. is tied for 5th in the NFL for receptions over 20 yards. San Fran has allowed 11 passes over 20 yards this year and are tied for 4th in the NFL in passing TDs allowed. Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Matt Jones

Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Jack Doyle

Indianapolis Colts

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

No Luck for Week 1


Still no timetable for Andrew Luck he’s “in the training phase and will be OUT this week vs. Rams.” In another report, Colts GM Chris Ballard said C Ryan Kelly (foot) will miss just a "couple weeks." Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Andrew Luck

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Swoope Out


The Colts signed TE-Brandon Williams, placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.
It suggests the "scope" Swoope underwent midway through August was a more serious operation than the Colts let on. That said, keeping him on the roster through final cuts means Indy expects Swoope to return this year, although he will have to miss at least the first eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like we are back to hearing more of “Jack Doyle Rules” this year, but not until Luck returns. Keep Swoope on your watch-list, he could be a sneaky streamer for the fantasy playoffs.

No Luck for Week 1


Still no timetable for Andrew Luck he’s “in the training phase and will be OUT this week vs. Rams.” In another report, Colts GM Chris Ballard said C Ryan Kelly (foot) will miss just a "couple weeks." Scott Tolzien will get the start week 1, but Brissett could take over the job week 2 if Luck remains out.

Fantasy Goo: I’m staying away from all Colts until Luck and Kelly get back. I can’t see anyone putting up predicable fantasy production, not even the running backs. You might be able to buy low on Colts players after a couple of ugly weeks though.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Colts Overpay for Brissett


“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Donte Moncrief

Indianapolis Colts

Moncrief Needs Luck


“Donte Moncrief is back today. Team working in helmets and shorts.” His shoulder injury proved to be minor and he was having a great camp before this minor set-back. Moncrief is Luck’s favorite end-zone target when they play together. What Moncrief needs now is for Luck to come back healthy.

Fantasy Goo: Moncrief’s ADP has dropped a full round in the past week, which probably has more to do with the concern surrounding Luck’s injury. If his ADP continues to drop we might be putting him in that “League Winner” category. Moncrief has phenomenal workout metrics so his abilities should go well beyond being just a TD machine.

Marlon Mack

Mack Ready to Attack


Chuck Pagano heaps praise onto rookie RB Marlon Mack, "He's popping out there. He's a talented guy. He's showing great athleticism, great vision," said Pagano. "We were doing one-on-one pass protection drills against linebackers, and he's physical. He's got toughness. He's not afraid to stick his face in there and pick up blitzers."

Fantasy Goo: Frank Gore and Robert Turbin combined to break off 15 yard runs on only 11% of their carries. Mack on the other hand produced 15+ yard runs on 52% of his carries, fifth highest among this draft class. Mack got the workload to support a consistent fantasy output, but he is the most likely RB to mirror Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington who both averaged over 5 yards per carry backing up Latavius Murray. -@pyro_Hartbeat RB Gold Diggers

Fantasy Goo: If you’ve been taking a late round flyer on Aiken (in deeper leagues) you might want to switch that up. Rogers was on the field for almost 50% of the teams plays last year (14 games), but only managed 34 targets. Five of those targets were in the red-zone though, so he could cut into Moncrief's numbers a bit if Rogers wins the job over Aiken.

Unless you are heavily invested in either of these teams you many need to be impressively inebriated to watch these defenses that rank in the bottom half of the league continually get burned. However, this should give T.Y. plenty of chances for scoring opportunities in this game.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

“The Indianapolis Colts perhaps acquired Andrew Luck’s fill-in on Saturday, trading for New England Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. That seems to essentially confirm what we already believed – that Luck will miss significant time at the start of the season. Had he gone on regular-season PUP, Luck would have had to sit six weeks before returning to practice, thus he could have missed eight to 10 games.”
Fantasy Goo: This confuses me. I understand the Colts wanting to buy some extra time for Luck to heal from surgery and get him up to NFL game speed before they put him back behind that Swiss-cheese offensive line, but the Brissett acquisition confuses me. Scott Tolzien is more experienced, more accurate, a better athlete, and knows the offense much better than Brissett. I’m staying away from both Tolzien and Brissett, hold on to Luck if you drafted him and look elsewhere for a streaming QB. If you are still drafting Luck is falling as far as QB10 off the board, I’d have a hard time passing on him in the ninth round.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Luck be a lady tonight


It's starting to look like Andrew Luck is not going to be the week 1 starter. Coach Pagano says he hasn't see #12 throw yet this season, that can't bode well for Week 1 game action.

Fantasy Goo: But, I'll play devil's advocate here.It seems like everyone is too comfortable with Scott Tolzien as the starter for this to be real. I think Luck will pop out of nowhere and play week 1. If not, he won't be gone for too long before he is back under center. Personally, I am drafting Luck in drafts because he's going in the 10th round - when he's back, he's top 5. Grab Carr, Mariota or Cousins earlier and back him up with Luck. Serious trade bate right there.

Lastly, I've been staying away from T.Y. a bit, his ADP hasn't really taken a hit. And to me Donte Moncrief is off my boards at this point. I need to see him do it before I use a 9th round pick on him. I'd rather have guys like Cobb, John Brown, Corey Davis, Chris Hogan and Adam Thielen over Donte at this point.

Andrew Luck

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.
