ESPN's Adam Schefter stated on NFL Insiders Monday that the "early sense" is T.Y. Hilton (ankle) will be available for Week 4 against Tennessee.

Coach Chuck Pagano said earlier Monday he didn't think Hilton's injury was "too severe," despite the fact that it cost him the entire second half of Sunday's win over Jacksonville. Of course, the Colts may have simply been playing it safe with Hilton because they were pasting the Jags. Through three games this season, Hilton has 16 catches for 186 yards without a touchdown.

Coach Chuck Pagano said he doesn't think T.Y. Hilton's ankle injury is "too severe."

Hilton had five catches for 80 yards late in the second quarter when he went down. The Colts don't sound very concerned, hinting at a standard kind of sprain. Owners could protect themselves by adding Hakeem Nicks or Donte Moncrief.
Sep 21 - 6:03 PM

Dwayne Allen secured 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Allen's stat lines through three games are 4-64-1, 0-0, and 4-43-1. He's basically the definition of a low-end TE1 in fantasy. The Colts take on the Titans next. Look for Allen to remain in the 4-6 target range against Tennessee.
Sep 21 - 5:10 PM

Coby Fleener caught 4-of-7 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He also dropped another would-be TD pass. Through three games, Fleener has turned in stat lines of 3-21, 1-13, and 4-49-1. He's very difficult to trust as more than a TE2 in fantasy. The Colts will host Tennessee in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:02 PM

Trent Richardson gained 57 yards on 14 carries and caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Most frustrating for those owners still starting T-Rich were back-to-back goal-line stuffs in the second half. The Colts promptly inserted Ahmad Bradshaw on third down, and Andrew Luck tossed a touchdown pass to Hakeem Nicks. Losing significant red-zone action to Bradshaw and still averaging under 4.0 YPC, Richardson is a weak RB2/flex in fantasy. The Colts host the Titans next.
Sep 21 - 5:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught 4-of-4 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

After not scoring once in 15 games with the Giants last year, Nicks has two TDs through three games with the Colts. He has turned in yardage lines of 36, -4, and 50, however. Nicks' fantasy outlook would improve if T.Y. Hilton (ankle) missed extended action, with rookie Donte Moncrief entering in three-receiver sets. Keep an eye on Hilton's injury status during the forthcoming week.
Sep 21 - 4:56 PM

Reggie Wayne secured 4-of-5 targets for 62 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Nine different Colts caught passes against Jacksonville. None of them topped 80 yards as Andrew Luck spread the ball around. Wayne has been held scoreless in each of Indy's first three games, and has only 88 yards over the last two combined. He's settling in as a low-upside WR3 option week to week.
Sep 21 - 4:53 PM

Colts rookie Donte Moncrief secured 4-of-5 targets for 55 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over Jacksonville.

The third-round pick added seven yards on a carry. Moncrief saw extended playing time in three-receiver sets after T.Y. Hilton exited with a second-quarter ankle injury, and never returned. Moncrief is a sensational athlete. He's more of a Dynasty league prospect than fantasy WR3, but could appear on the WR4/5 radar if Hilton misses multiple games.
Sep 21 - 4:50 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw turned eight carries into 65 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 romp over the Jaguars.

Bradshaw is consistently replacing Trent Richardson in red-zone situations at this point, allowing the former Giant to pile up three TDs over his last two games. Bradshaw's health remains the biggest obstacle for his 2014 fantasy outlook, but as long as he's upright he'll be a quality RB2 in PPR leagues, and an every-week flex in non-PPR. Keep him rolling against the Titans in Week 4. Tennessee's defense is getting gashed in the run game.
Sep 21 - 4:44 PM

Andrew Luck completed 31-of-39 passes for 370 yards, four touchdowns, and no turnovers in Sunday's Week 3 blowout win over the Jaguars.

He added 15 rushing yards on three scrambles. Through three games, Luck's TD-to-INT ratio stands at 9:3. He was surgical against the defense-less Jaguars, who sacked Luck twice but otherwise generated very little pressure as Luck spread the ball around to nine different pass catchers. Luck should have had a fifth touchdown, but Coby Fleener dropped the would-be score. Expect Luck to stay hot when the Colts host the crumbling Titans in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 3:45 PM

T.Y. Hilton exited Sunday's Week 3 game with an ankle injury.

The injury happened late in the second quarter. Hilton had five catches for 80 yards on six targets before departing. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game midway through the third quarter.
Sep 21 - 2:48 PM

Hakeem Nicks (illness) is active for Sunday's Week 3 game at Jacksonville.

Nicks missed some practice this week, but is ready to go. He'll play far behind T.Y. Hilton though, and is a WR4 at best. The Colts inactives: Da'Rick Rogers, Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), Khaled Holmes (ankle), Lance Louis, Joe Reitz (ankle), Art Jones (ankle) and Chris Carter.
Sep 21 - 11:53 AM

Hakeem Nicks (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

Nicks will likely come down to a game-time decision after missing practice the last two days. Even if he plays, Nicks is no more than a WR4 for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 8:17 PM

A.Q. Shipley will start at center in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Shipley has graded out as a top-ten center by Pro Football Focus through two games. He'll remain the starter even with Khaled Holmes (probable, ankle) healthy enough to return.
Sep 20 - 5:19 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells expects TE Dwayne Allen's targets and receptions will "increase as the season goes on."

Allen has only seen six passes thrown his way through the first two weeks of the season, while fellow tight end Coby Fleener has nine targets already. Allen has been more effective with his targets, though, and is simply a better player than Fleener. His role in the offense should grow, but Allen's upside is limited as long as Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton continue to soak up targets.
