Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 49 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the pass game. The Colts said they wanted to get rookie Marlon Mack more involved on offense after his big Week 5, but it was Gore and fellow vet Robert Turbin getting all the work. Mack carried the ball just two times. Gore has now rushed between 46 and 57 yards in each of the past five games. He's been consistently average.

Jack Doyle caught 7-of-11 targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

After missing Week 5 with a concussion, Doyle came back and led the Colts in targets. He caught a short eight-yard touchdown in the second quarter to get the touchdown-scoring started in this one, but otherwise struggled much of the night. He simply had trouble hanging onto the ball, dropping a couple passes and losing one fumble. Doyle will be a low-end TE1 Week 7 at Jacksonville.
Oct 17 - 12:18 AM

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.

Marlon Mack rushed two times for 18 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He failed to catch either of his two targets. Mack exploded for a 22-yard run on his first attempt, but lost four on the next carry in the first quarter and never touched the ball again. He's now had 12 carries go for zero or negative yards. Mack is the definition of boom or bust. The Colts said they wanted to get Mack more involved after his strong Week 5, but it didn't happen at all. Frank Gore was running well and turned 12 touches into 67 yards, while Robert Turbin chipped in 40 yards on seven touches before leaving with an elbow injury in the final quarter. Mack is worth a bench stash, but the Colts love their old guys like Gore, who never gets hurt.

Jacoby Brissett completed 21-of-37 passes for 212 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans on Monday night.

He added 15 yards on five rushes. Brissett came out guns blazing in the first half, going into halftime completing 12-of-19 balls for 119 yards and the score to Jack Doyle. He should have had a second touchdown to Donte Moncrief from 18 yards away, but Moncrief committed a horrid drop in the end zone on a perfect pass. After the half, Brissett was downright dreadful, going 9-of-18 for 93 yards, and the Colts again blew a second-half lead. Andrew Luck (shoulder) is nearing a return, but is likely at least another week away. Brissett won't be a fantasy option next week on the road in Jacksonville.

T.Y. Hilton caught just 1-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

The Titans came into this one bleeding fantasy points and production to opposing receivers, but Hilton was unable to get much going at all. He's had two massive games at home this season -- 7-153-1 vs. CLE and 7-177 vs. SF -- but has been real quiet on the road with 3-57-0, 3-30-0, and now 1-19-0 lines. His home-road splits have been a story his entire career, and things only get worse without Andrew Luck in the lineup. The Colts head back out on the road in Week 7 against Jacksonville's No. 1 pass defense. Hilton will be a borderline WR3/4 for that matchup.

Robert Turbin exited Week 6 against the Titans with a left elbow injury.

He took a 3rd-and-10 dumpoff 9.5 yards to the sticks and planted his left arm in the ground only to apparently dislocate his elbow. It looked gruesome, and Turbin was quickly ushered to the locker room. Before leaving, Turbin managed 40 total yards on seven touches. He's likely to miss extended time.
Oct 16 - 11:39 PM

Colts declared RB Matt Jones, QB Andrew Luck, DB Quincy Wilson, LB Anthony Walker, LB Tarell Basham, OG Isaiah Williams, and TE Henry Krieger-Coble inactive for Week 6 against the Titans.

Wilson and Basham are both healthy scratches as rookie draft picks.

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

ESPN’s Mike Wells expects Marlon Mack to have an "increased workload" on Monday night against the Titans.

This falls with Chuck Pagano’s plan to get Mack more carries. Mack led Indy to an overtime win last week, adding a big-play threat to an offense that’s lacked splash plays without Andrew Luck. The Colts have misplaced loyalty to Frank Gore, a 34-year-old on an expired deal with three straight sub-4.0 YPC seasons. Mack was a workhorse for star HC Willie Taggart at USF — starting 36-of-36 games — and is miscast in a change-up role. The Colts need to make the move to Mack if they want to get him double-digit starts — a streak he’s had since college. Mack is the future in Indy and deserves to start.

Jack Doyle has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to play Monday night against the Titans.

This was fully expected considering he practiced in full all week. Doyle has been mostly down this season, but Jacoby Brissett is coming off his best passing day of the year. Doyle is an option for desperate streamers.
Oct 14 - 1:13 PM

Colts placed RG Jack Mewhort on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Mewhort's knee swelled up in practice on Friday, and an MRI revealed he needed surgery. Mewhort was not playing well as he attempted to work through the injury, but this is still another blow for the Colts' struggling offensive line.
Oct 14 - 1:12 PM

Jacoby Brissett is listed on the Week 6 injury report with a left wrist issue, but practicing in full.

It's the first we've heard of it, though Brissett is in zero danger of missing Monday's game against the Titans. He offers streamer appeal against the Titans' awful pass defense.
Oct 12 - 7:43 PM

Jack Doyle (concussion, neck) is practicing in full for Week 6.

It means Doyle will be back for Monday's game against the Titans after missing Week 5. A volatile option so far this season, Doyle will remain a mid-range TE2 for however long Jacoby Brissett is under center.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Despite missing a game, Doyle is second on the team with 17 receptions. He has nice chemistry with Brissett, which was highlighted when he caught all eight of his targets against the Browns. He figures to return to being the second option behind T.Y. Hilton against the Titans, whose defense ranks 21st in TE DVOA. Although they've allowed the 6th-fewest PPR points to TEs, they haven't had a strong TE schedule. When they were challenged, they gave up a 5/56/0 line to Jared Cook and a 7/72/0 to Jimmy Graham. Doyle’s cheap $13 salary on Yahoo makes him our TE2 in terms of points-per-dollar.
Oct 12 - 4:05 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Marlon Mack is not ready to be an every-down or third-down back.

Mack erupted for 91 yards and a touchdown on nine carries against the 49ers, but Pagano said he is still a work in progress after missing some time due to injury. Mack has also been fairly boom-or-bust early in his career, failing to gain more than three yards on 18-of-25 attempts so far this season. Mack will likely see more touches moving forward, but he will need a more defined role to be usable in fantasy lineups.
