Dwayne Allen caught 3-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Allen looked poised for a strong day, catching an early pass on the opening drive, but he later dropped a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter and was barely heard from again, getting out-produced by Jack Doyle (6-65 on six targets). Allen theoretically got a boost with Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade) hurt, but his role didn't change much in the first game after Moncrief's injury. Allen will merely be a TE2 next against the Jaguars in London.

Jack Doyle caught 6-of-6 targets for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Once again, Doyle out-targeted and out-produced Dwayne Allen (3-35 on five targets). Doyle is looking more and more like Andrew Luck's Mr. Reliable and even more so without Donte Moncrief (shoulder) in the lineup. Without Moncrief, the Colts used two-tight ends as their base offense. Doyle will be on the streaming map in deeper leagues Week 4 against the Jaguars.
Sep 25 - 8:25 PM

Phillip Dorsett caught 3-of-4 targets for 27 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Dorsett played in all two-wide sets with Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade) on the shelf, but he ran into a tough draw against the Chargers' solid trio of corners. T.Y. Hilton dominated targets (11) and turned them into an explosive 8-174-1 line. Dorsett is going to take a backseat to Hilton with Moncrief down and isn't going to be a factor in the red zone. He remains a boom-or-bust WR3 heading into a Week 4 date with the Jaguars in London.

Josh Ferguson rushed one time for two yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 29 yards in the Week 3 win over the Chargers.

The target he didn't catch was a bad drop on third down late in the fourth quarter with the Colts down by four. Ferguson plays in catch-up mode and two-minute drills, but he's not worth owning in 12-team leagues.
Sep 25 - 8:14 PM

Frank Gore rushed 21 times for 81 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

He caught 1-of-3 targets for one yard. Gore looked to be well on his way to his first 100-yard rushing game with the Colts after a 70-yard first half, but the Colts went away from his for some reason and went to Josh Ferguson and the passing game with very little success. Gore ran through massive holes in the first quarter, particularly. This matchup was as good as it will get for Gore this season. He'll be back on the back-end RB2 map next week in London versus Jacksonville.

Andrew Luck completed 24-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Luck -- and the Colts offense as a whole -- was dreadful for much of the day, but he found T.Y. Hilton for a 63-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter with the Colts trailing 22-20. Luck could have had a more productive afternoon, but Dwayne Allen dropped a six-yard score early in the first quarter. His interception was a terrible sideline shot that set the Chargers up at Indy's six-yard line. Luck's shoulder "injury" was a non-issue, as he uncorked 37 attempts. Luck will look to rebound across the pond next week against the Jaguars in London.
Sep 25 - 7:56 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 8-of-11 targets for 174 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' 26-22, Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle. The knee "injury" that had Hilton listed questionable proved to be a non-issue. Hilton will be a WR1/2 next week when the Colts travel to London to face the Jaguars.
Sep 25 - 7:46 PM

Colts RT Joe Reitz exited Week 3 against the Chargers with a back injury.

Right guard Joe Haeg has moved to right tackle, with Jonotthan Harris entering.
Sep 25 - 6:45 PM

Colts CB Vontae Davis (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

He'll be making his season debut after missing about a month with an ankle injury. Davis' return will be a big boost to what has been a terrible pass defense, though the Colts are also still without CB Patrick Robinson (concussion) and slot CB Darius Butler (hamstring). Philip Rivers remains a QB1.
Sep 25 - 3:13 PM

T.Y. Hilton (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Hilton was added to the injury report Thursday and missed Friday's practice, but it all seemed precautionary. Look for him to be locked up with budding star CB Jason Verrett on the outside much of the day.
Sep 25 - 3:10 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

As expected. Despite being listed questionable, Luck was never in doubt. T.Y. Hilton (knee) is also active and starting. Inactive for the Colts are WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade), CB Darius Butler, CB Patrick Robinson, OT Le'Raven Clark, OG Denzelle Good, WR Devin Street, and NT T.Y. McGill.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora confirms Andrew Luck (shoulder) "is starting" Sunday against San Diego.

Luck's practice reps were limited during the week and he was listed as questionable, but there was never any concern about his availability among beat reporters. Some parts of the DFS community got worried when the Colts-Chargers game was pulled off the board at a few Vegas sportsbooks on Wednesday, but it is up at every meaningful sportsbook at the moment. There is some concern about Luck's sore shoulder, but he will be starting Sunday versus San Diego.

Colts CB Vontae Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Chargers in Week 3.

Coach Chuck Pagano expressed optimism Friday that Davis would be able to start versus San Diego, although his status may come down to a game-time decision. Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams would get small downgrades were Davis able to suit up. It's still unclear whether he can play a full complement of snaps.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Both Williams and Benjamin would become riskier targets if Davis played, although it's unlikely he'd be at full strength and he'd probably just operate on one side of the field as opposed to shadowing any one of the Chargers WRs. Benjamin and Williams both line up all over the field - neither has racked up over 40% of their snaps at any one WR position - so they'd each likely see Davis for about 20-33% of snaps assuming he plays every snap.
Sep 23 - 2:21 PM

Andrew Luck (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 3 against the Chargers.

There was never any doubt, even after Luck sat out practice Wednesday. Coach Chuck Pagano said the team is simply going to manage his reps this season. Luck is a top-end QB1 in a plus spot at home.
Sep 23 - 12:54 PM

T.Y. Hilton (questionable, knee) was held out of Colts practice on Friday.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Hilton is just "sore," and was "rested" on the last day of the practice week. "He's going to be fine," Pagano promised. Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday due to a limited practice. It sounds like he will be starting versus San Diego.
