Donte Moncrief caught 5-of-7 targets for 67 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.
Moncrief's night started horrendously with him dropping an 18-yard touchdown strike from Jacoby Brissett in the end zone. But Moncrief turned it around a bit, as the yards and catches were both season-bests to this point. The contract-year wideout has been a huge disappointment without Andrew Luck through six weeks and won't be fantasy usable Week 7 at the Jaguars. Oct 17 - 12:12 AM

The Indianapolis Star expects contract-year WR Donte Moncrief to reach free agency.

Moncrief has been down this year, catching 11 passes through the first five weeks. He’s open to re-signing with the Colts, but has no ties to GM Chris Ballard. Moncrief won’t struggle for interest if the Colts let him walk.
Oct 14 - 7:15 PM

Donte Moncrief caught all three of his targets for 32 yards in the Colts' Week 5 win over the 49ers.

Moncrief's season high in yards is 50, and he has just one touchdown. He simply isn't a usable fantasy player right now heading into Week 6 at Tennessee. He stands to benefit whenever Andrew Luck returns to action.
Oct 8 - 5:37 PM

Donte Moncrief caught three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 4.

Moncrief scored on an 18-yard fade at the end of the first half. He was held in check after that, with the Colts getting held to a field goal the rest of the game. The touchdown was Moncrief's first of the season. Moncrief is on pace for just 32 catches and 568 yards through four weeks.
Oct 2 - 12:32 AM

Donte Moncrief caught 2-of-3 targets for 44 yards Week 3 against the Browns.

Moncrief was actually benched to start the game in favor of Kamar Aiken, but Aiken was lost for the game with a concussion on the Colts' second possession. Moncrief now has five catches for 112 yards on the season and is not even a flex option next week heading into Seattle.
Sep 24 - 4:52 PM

Donte Moncrief caught 2-of-8 targets for 18 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

To begin the season, Moncrief has three catches on 12 targets. He didn't fight for the ball consistently on Sunday, and was one of the reasons the Colts lost. Moncrief will have no fantasy value until Andrew Luck (shoulder) returns.
Sep 17 - 4:43 PM

Donte Moncrief came down with one catch for 50 yards on four targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams.

Moncrief's lone catch, which also happened to be the largest gain of the afternoon for either team, came on a 50-yard deep bomb from Jacoby Brissett. That set up the Colts’ only touchdown of the game, which came two plays later on a three-yard run by Marlon Mack. Like the rest of the Colts save for possibly Frank Gore and T.Y. Hilton, it’s best to avoid Moncrief until Andrew Luck is back from shoulder surgery.
Sep 10 - 8:27 PM

Donte Moncrief corralled his only target for 55 yards Saturday in the Colts’ third preseason game.

Moncrief’s night was short and sweet. His lone target came on a slant from Scott Tolzien on Indy’s first play from scrimmage. Moncrief did a nice job to elude defenders, though he benefited from an ugly missed tackle by Robert Golden. He also drew a pass interference in the end zone that led to a goal-line touchdown for Frank Gore. With Andrew Luck still banged up from offseason shoulder surgery, Moncrief will be little more than a boom-or-bust WR4 in fantasy.

Donte Moncrief (shoulder) has been wearing a non-contact jersey at practice.

Moncrief has been playing through a sprained AC joint the last few weeks and was held out of the Colts' second preseason game. It's a concern given his shoulder issues date back to last year, but Moncrief should be ready for Week 1.
Aug 23 - 6:30 PM

Donte Moncrief (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday.

Moncrief sprained the AC joint in his shoulder last Thursday, but it proved to be minor, only costing his a couple practices. By all accounts, Moncrief has had a strong camp to this point. He scored a bunch of touchdowns last season but left a lot to be desired in yards. His breakout potential hinges on Andrew Luck's health.
Aug 9 - 8:48 AM

Donte Moncrief suffered a sprained AC joint in his shoulder on Thursday.

Coach Chuck Pagano is labeling Moncrief as day to day. It depends how severe the sprain is, but the Colts are saying it's "mild" for Moncrief. He missed a ton of action last season with a shoulder issue, though that was a broken shoulder blade. Moncrief was reportedly off to a fast start early in training camp.
Aug 4 - 11:00 AM

Donte Moncrief wants to increase his yards after the catch in 2017.

Playing hurt, Moncrief averaged a pitiful 2.5 yards after catch last season, placing in the bottom 12 of Pro Football Focus' metric. He averaged 4.1 in 2015. The contract-year wideout expects to move around the formation more this season. Moncrief was a 2016 fantasy bust, but is a strong bounce-back candidate.
May 9 - 2:19 PM

New Colts WRs coach Sanjay Lal said Donte Moncrief "has all the tools" to be "one of the better receivers in the league."

Moncrief's physical ability is not in question, but Lal seems to think he has room to grow. "I don't know how he was coached, what was demanded of him in the past," Lal said. "All I know is with me, it's a blank slate." Entering his contract year, Moncrief can earn himself a nice payday with a big season.
May 9 - 12:12 PM

Colts declared WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) inactive for Week 17.

Buzzed about all summer, third-year pro Moncrief ended up having a lost year. Injuries limited him to nine games, and he posted more than 50 yards receiving only twice. Moncrief did continue to show a nose for the end zone, scoring seven times. Still only 23, Moncrief will be a bounce-back/WR2 candidate in 2017. Also inactive for the Colts are CB Darius Butler, CB Rashaan Melvin, LB Deiontrez Mount, C Austin Blythe, C Kristjan Sokoli and OT Jeremy Vujnovich.
Jan 1 - 11:43 AM

Donte Moncrief (doubtful, shoulder) missed practice again Friday.

It'll be T.Y. Hilton and the tight ends for Indianapolis on Sunday. Moncrief endured a third NFL season plagued by shoulder and hamstring injuries, but he was a touchdown-scoring machine when active. He'll be positioned for a major bounce-back season in 2017, which will also be Moncrief's contract year.
