Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for minus-four yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

He was targeted three times on the night. Nicks' best opportunity came on an end-zone look, but it was a bit overthrown in good coverage. He's seen eight targets through two games with the Colts, and is no more than a WR4/5.

Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3.

Brent Celek dropped his lone target in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

It would have gone for an easy one-yard touchdown, but the ball clanked right off Celek's fingers. He's only in the lineup thanks to his willingness to block.
Sep 16 - 12:40 AM

Donte Moncrief caught his lone target for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

It was Moncrief's first NFL catch. He's the clear No. 4 receiver in Indy, but won't play a large role unless OC Pep Hamilton reluctantly opens up the offense or gets fired.
Sep 16 - 12:39 AM

Jordan Matthews caught 1-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

Matthews played in three-wide sets out of the slot, as expected. On his lone catch, Matthews caught an earful from coach Chip Kelly for not getting out of bounds. As the fifth or sixth option in the passing game, Matthews isn't start-able in fantasy. He won't have value unless there are injuries in Philadelphia.
Sep 16 - 12:37 AM

Coby Fleener caught just one pass for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Fleener saw just the one target a week after dropping a pass and botching a red-zone target. He's not worth owning in any fantasy leagues.
Sep 16 - 12:34 AM

Riley Cooper caught one pass for eight yards in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

Cooper was targeted just three times on the night; he dropped one deep ball in the end zone and later drew a pass interference call against Vontae Davis in the end zone to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard score. Cooper saw some good looks, but didn't do anything with them. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4.
Sep 16 - 12:32 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught six passes for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Hilton saw a team-high ten targets. He dropped the first pass of the game, and was targeted on Andrew Luck's late-fourth quarter interception. Hilton was mugged on the play by Eagles slot CB Brandon Boykin and was dragged to the turf. Hilton has seen a healthy 21 targets through two games, but has yet to break a big play. He has another favorable matchup in Week 3 at the Jaguars.
Sep 16 - 12:29 AM

Jeremy Maclin caught four passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 2 win over the Colts.

Maclin was targeted a game-high 11 times one week after seeing ten targets. He's clearly drawing the eye of Nick Foles, but Foles is missing his No. 1 receiver too often. Foles missed Maclin for a wide-open touchdown in Week 1, and also overshot him on Monday night in the end zone. If Foles can find his 2013 form, Maclin will flirt with high-end WR2 production as this target rate. He has another favorable matchup at home against Redskins in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 12:27 AM

Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 28 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Wayne was targeted seven times on the night, but couldn't shake free for any big gains. Andrew Luck also couldn't complete any passes downfield with OC Pep Hamilton dialing up run play after run play mixed in with short throwing plays. Wayne should rebound next week against Jacksonville. He's a WR3/4.
Sep 16 - 12:23 AM

Zach Ertz caught 4-of-6 targets for 81 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Outside of Darren Sproles, Ertz was the Eagles' leading receiver. But after playing 60 percent of the snaps in Week 1, we'd bet that number dipped in Week 2. He just wasn't on the field enough despite making highlight-reel catches when he did touch the ball. Ertz had a big catch on a 3rd-and-11 when he went up and got the ball to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard touchdown. He's a back-end TE1 thanks to his playmaking ability, but we want to see more usage.
Sep 16 - 12:16 AM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries and caught five passes for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Colts.

Bradshaw outplayed Trent Richardson for the second consecutive game to open the season. Bradshaw took his first carry of the game 29 yards up the left side. It looked like he was shot out of a cannon. Bradshaw legitimately looks like he's been reborn, and he's playing in all red-zone and passing situations, as evidenced by his one-yard and seven-yard scores. He's clearly the superior talent in the Colts' backfield, but we tend to think the Indianapolis coaching staff is too stubborn to realize it. That, or they'll wake up when it's too late.
Sep 16 - 12:08 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed for 79 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night, adding four catches for an additional 23 yards.

McCoy's 102 totals yards go largely unnoticed because of Darren Sproles' 178 yards and one score on 11 touches. Still, McCoy had a fine night against a pitiful defense. He didn't break off many big gainers, but McCoy was steady and showed off his video game-like moves on a couple occasions. He pounded his touchdown in from one yard away after Riley Cooper drew a DPI call in the end zone. Sproles' heavier load than expected is a bit of a buzzkill for McCoy owners, but Shady is still producing fine numbers and getting his touches. The Redskins are up next for the Eagles. McCoy will be a top-three option at running back.
Sep 16 - 12:02 AM

Trent Richardson rushed for 79 yards on 21 carries in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

He added a 16-yard reception. It was one of Richardson's best games since the trade, though it's nothing to write home about. Richardson had a few scampers of 10-plus yards, but he also ran up the backs of his blockers at times and fumbled twice. One fumble came in the red zone that Indy fortunately recovered, but the other was at his own 20-yard line. It set up Darren Sproles' 19-yard touchdown run for the Eagles and tied the game at 20-20. Meanwhile, Ahmad Bradshaw looks reborn as a Colt. We doubt the Colts' coaching staff realizes it.
Sep 15 - 11:54 PM

Nick Foles completed 21-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

The stat line is deceiving. Foles couldn't complete anything downfield outside of a couple shots to Zach Ertz. Instead, he simply dumped balls off to Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy and let them do all the dirty work. Foles just isn't seeing the field like he did in 2013. He'd be a bigger story if the Eagles hadn't been able to overcome 14-point halftime deficits in back-to-back weeks. He missed a wide-open Jeremy Maclin in the end zone Monday, and threw another pass well behind Ertz. Foles will remain on the QB1 map next week vs. Washington.
