Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Moncrief had been working his way into the Colts receiver rotation over the past few weeks, and he capitalized on Reggie Wayne's absence and a shootout between Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger to burst onto the national scene. So long as Wayne remains sidelined Moncrief will run as Indy's WR2 opposite TY Hilton, giving the Colts a solid young receiving corps for Luck for the foreseeable future.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton racked up six receptions for a game-high 155 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Hilton has stepped up as Indy's WR1, capitalizing on Andrew Luck's monster season and Pep Hamilton's willingness to turn the offense over to Luck and the passing game to put up big numbers. He and Donte Moncrief give the Colts and Luck a solid wide receiver tandem going forward.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: As expected, the veteran wideout will be down Sunday, leaving more targets and looks for Hakeem Nicks, rookie Donte Moncrief and TEs Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 10/24/14 4:01pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He is listed as questionable could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Indy's late-afternoon kickoff in Pittsburgh on Sunday won't help T-Rich owners, but the RB is a longshot to play in any case given he hasn't practiced at all. Get another back in your lineup now and prepare to leave him there.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 10/23/14 10:16am ET
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he expects to play in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured in the second half of the Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and could have returned. However, he was held out because the game had already been decided.
Huddle Up: Richardson is still the Colts' volume back, though Ahmad Bradshaw is the more efficient and effective of the tandem.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 10/23/14 2:52pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Wayne hasn't been ruled out of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh by any means just yet, but it's not looking good for the veteran wideout who also sat out Wednesday.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 10/23/14 4:14pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: That's 2 straight missed practices for the Indy RB, and it's starting to look like Ahmad Bradshaw and Dan Herron will serve as the team's primary backs Sunday in Pittsburgh.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 10/23/14 4:23pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is ahead of schedule in terms of his knowledge of the offense, and the team believes he will perform when he is on the field, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.
Huddle Up: The third-round pick has a reception in 5 of Indy's 7 games this season, but the rookie remains on the wrong end of a numbers game with pass-catchers T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne, Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener and Hakeem Nicks all ranking higher in the pecking order.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 10/22/14 6:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Something to keep on the rest of the week after Richardson departed last Sunday's game early with the balky hammy. Dan Herron would spell Ahmad Bradshaw in Week 8 if Richardson is unable to go.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 10/21/14 11:06am ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) said he is still working his way back to pre-injury form, but he looks a lot better than he did in training camp, according to beat writer Stephen Holder. Allen has 33 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns thus far.
Huddle Up: Even with the injury Allen has emerged as the scoring tight end in Indy's rotation, surpassing Andrew Luck's former college teammate Coby Fleener for that role.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 10/21/14 11:06am ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) could miss time with his elbow injury. Beat writer Stephen Holder tweeted that he isn't receiving good vibes from the situation, but it doesn't sound major. The team is receiving multiple opinions on the injury.
Huddle Up: The Colts have some depth at the position, but Andrew Luck would miss Wayne's veteran presence should he be down for any extended length of time.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 10/14/14 11:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is currently in the top eight among tight ends in non-PPR leagues. Most of Allen's production has come in the form of touchdowns (4).
Huddle Up: Allen has been targeted a modest 27 times so far and shares the team's TE workload with Coby Fleener (25 targets). Allen does have 5 more catches, 103 more yards and one more TD catch than Fleener so he should definitely be your choice if both Indy TEs are among your low-end TE1 options.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/10/14 12:25am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had nine catches on nine targets for a regular-season career-high 223 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Hilton, who entered the game as the league's most-targeted player (50) without a TD catch, got going early and never stopped, finishing a single yard off Raymond Berry's regular-season franchise receiving-yard record for a single game. Hilton did have 224 yards in last season's wild wild-card win over the Chiefs, but now he also has a 200-yard regular-season game, with more sure to come with Andrew Luck throwing him passes.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/29/14 10:17am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) tweaked his ankle in the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans, and was forced to leave the game briefly. He was able to return, but was spotted after the game with a walking boot on his left foot as a precaution.
Huddle Up: You have to think at this stage of his career Bradshaw has multiple styles of walking boots: Air Jordan walking boots, Crocs walking boots for the summer months, probably a dress walking boot for more formal occasions... what we're saying is, injury is nothing new for Bradshaw. That said, he's stepped out of the walking boot and played well on more than one occasion so this doesn't necessarily rule him out for Week 5. You'll have to monitor his practice week and availability leading up to game time, but that's part of the deal when drafting/owning Bradshaw.
Da'Rick Rogers - WRPosted 9/29/14 7:06pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts have released WR Da'Rick Rogers and promoted FS Dewey McDonald to their 53-man roster Monday, Sept. 29, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Rogers was arrested early Monday morning on DUI charges
Huddle Up: Rogers had 14 catches for 192 yards and a pair of scores last season but had not played an offensive snap this season at the bottom of a deep Indy WR depth chart.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 9/25/14 3:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Hilton left the Colts' Week 2 win in the first half and didn't return, but he looks be fully on track to play Sunday.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/24/14 6:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (rest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Just a maintenance day for the veteran who, believe it or not, ranks sixth among all fantasy backs with 44 points heading into Week 4.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 9/24/14 6:08pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Good sign that the wideout was at least able to get in some work after leaving the Week 3 game before halftime. See, though, if he can increase his practice load in the next few days.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/18/14 7:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne and RB Ahmad Bradshaw were full participants in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. Both players received rest days Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Just a little early-season break for the two veterans, who have strong matchups Sunday going against a Jaguars' D which has been torched for 75 points and 869 yards in 2 games.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/16/14 12:23am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 13 times for 70 yards and caught 5 passes for 26 yards and 2 TDs Monday, Sept. 15 in a 30-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Starter Trent Richardson had more touches (22-18) than Bradshaw but the latter continues to get more done with less, averaging 5.4 yards per rush (13-70) to Richardson's 3.8 (21-79) and had 4 more catches and 10 more receiving yards. He also scored the pair of TDs while Richardson fumbled twice, losing one. The bottom line is that Bradshaw is the Indy back you want, even if he continues getting slightly less work.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/12/14 10:22am ET
Indianapolis Colts RBs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw are expected to split carries in Week 2. Richardson rushed only six times for 20 yards in Week 1 because the team fell behind early. However, in his limited work, he showed improved vision and decisiveness.
Huddle Up: Hard to emphatically state that 3.3 yards per carry indicates "improved vision and decisiveness", but we'll go with it. Bradshaw is a better fit when the team needs to throw, as they did playing catch-up in Denver, so it boils down to what direction Pep Hamilton and the offense want (or need) to go based on the game situation. Hope you weren't banking on Richardson being your (and Indy's) go-to feature back.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/11/14 2:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Likely just a maintenance day for the 35-year-old WR, but check in on him Friday just to make sure.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/4/14 7:14pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne was back to a full practice Thursday, Sept. 4, after resting Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: At 35 and coming off the knee injury, the veteran wideout is going to need some rest days. For this week, count on him as an WR3 option if you need him.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 8/21/14 12:07am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson is off to a slow start in training camp and the preseason, posting just 34 yards in 14 attempts. At 2.4 yards per carry, that's even less than the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged in his disappointing 2014. 'Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability,' general manager Ryan Grigson said Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Some are saying Richardson looks good this preseason but they must be watching games from his time at Alabama by mistake. Richardson is still dancing behind the line and looks like the same back he has for the last year and a half. He plays in an explosive offense but right now Richardson's big rookie year looks like a lifetime ago
Robert Mathis - LBPosted 8/21/14 6:42pm ET
Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (undisclosed) will not play in the team's third preseason game, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: It's not like the veteran Mathis needs the work, and the next time you'll likely see him in an Indy uniform is Week 5 as he will serve a 4-game drug-policy suspension to open the regular season.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 8/21/14 6:52pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is a game-time decision against the New Orleans Saints Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Indy would like to get the veteran wideout a few preseason snaps after he missed the final 9 games last season and the first two exhibitions this year. If he's doing as well as been billed in practices, count on seeing him Saturday.
Phillip Tanner - RBPosted 8/20/14 5:26pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts waived RB Phillip Tanner Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Tanner was fighting for a spot on the bottom of Indy's RB depth chart, but the Colts' signing of Deji Karim last week made him expendable.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 8/13/14 10:30am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) said Tuesday, Aug. 12, that he expects to play in the team's regular season opener against the Denver Broncos. He isn't sure if he will get the green light to make his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 16, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw is the expected backup plan to Trent Richardson in Indy. That he hasn't played in the preseason is keeping his fantasy value down, to the point that if you're not a believer in a T-Rich bounceback season Bradshaw is a great late-round flier... assuming, of course, he's healthy enough to actually play.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 8/12/14 10:22pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton not only believes he's a No. 1 wide receiver, but adds teammates Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks into that category as well.
Huddle Up: Hilton is right on in that Indy has had a sizable WR facelift over last season when Darrius Heyward-Bey, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen were all forced into more action than necessary. Hilton, Wayne and Nicks will vulture each other's fantasy value, but as a whole, it bodes very well for Andrew Luck's aerial outlook, and he should easily eclipse last season's totals of 3,822 passing yards and 23 TDs.
Hakeem Nicks - WRPosted 8/7/14 4:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks said he is in the best shape of his life. "I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...I came in weighing 209 when I was supposed to come in weighing 212," Nicks said. "After Pep came to me to clarify, he said that he (meant) everybody's getting into game shape right now--it's the beginning of camp. He came apologizing to let me know he wasn't just singling me out."
Huddle Up: All interpretations aside, we can start judging Nicks for ourselves Thursday night as Indy opens the preseason against the Jets.
