Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns as the Colts defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 25-12, on Sunday, Nov. 29.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) posted his first 300-yard game in four years and improved to 4-0. Andrew Luck's job is safe, so no worries there. However, Hasselbeck has helped the Colts stay in contention during this period.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:06:02 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR Ahmad Bradshaw caught two touchdown passes from QB Matt Hasselbeck in a 24-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) may be worth the lower FantasyScore cost if he has a role in Hasselbeck's offense. This game looked promising for Bradshaw to get some short-yardage workouts.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:25:42 -0800
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw for two touchdowns Sunday, Nov. 22, in a 24-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Hasselbeck finished 23 of 32 for 213 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) needed a big game like this to keep the Colts in contention and he got, albeit with a little help from Adam Vinatieri. His yardage numbers weren't great, but at this lower price he makes for a decent FantasyScore pickup.
Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:12:17 -0800
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) will miss two to six weeks with an abdominal tear and a lacerated kidney he suffered in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos in Week 9. Luck will not need surgery, however. QB Matt Hasselbeck will start in Luck's place.
Fantasy Tip: This is obviously a big loss for the Colts. The timetable for Luck's return isn't certain and depends on how he progresses throughout his recovery. The fantasy value of all Colts' receivers, including T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Andre Johnson, takes a hit with Luck sidelined. Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a capable backup, as he has already shown this season, and may be a decent sleeper pick on FantasyScore in the time being if the matchups are favorable.
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 13:27:46 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is "day-to-day," and head coach Chuck Pagano will not say whether Luck will return in Week 6 to face the New England Patriots after practicing in full Monday, Oct. 12. Luck is 0-4 in his career against the Patriots and has lost by an average of 29 points. QB Matt Hasselbeck would start his third straight game if Luck can't go.
Fantasy Tip: Luck hasn't played the last two weeks and hasn't looked good at all in the games that he has played in. Look for Luck to be questionable again this week, and he could be a game-time decision, which makes him even that much riskier in all fantasy formats.
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 09:47:26 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QBs Andrew Luck (shoulder) and Matt Hasselbeck (illness) both practiced in full Monday, Oct. 12, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Luck missed the last two weeks and has been limited in practice, but this is a positive sign that he'll be ready to return in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. Pagano said that Luck "looked good" in practice and was throwing the ball well.
Fantasy Tip: The Colts will definitely need Luck in Week 6 in order to have a shot at beating the unbeaten Pats. After missing the last two weeks and looking pretty bad in the opening two weeks, Luck probably won't be very attractive in his return in daily leagues, though.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 16:31:59 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is dealing with a bacterial infection and was still on an IV Thursday, Oct. 8. Hasselbeck is starting against the Houston Texans and said he hopes he can play all four quarters.
Fantasy Tip: The Colts don't have the most ideal situation at quarterback tonight with Andrew Luck out and Hasselbeck ailing. Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a cheaper quarterback option on FantasyScore, but the reward might not be worth the risk.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 07:32:20 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) will start Thursday, Oct. 8, despite a virus that required intravenous fluids in the hospital after last week's game. Hasselbeck is still sick as he takes on the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had a solid performance last week and has a good matchup against Houston. He's a low-end flyer worth considering on FantasyScore if you're going cheap at QB.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 07:26:51 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't play Thursday, Oct. 8, with QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) drawing the start against the Houston Texans, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had a solid performance last week and has a good matchup against Houston. He's a low-end flyer worth taking on FantasyScore.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 06:16:58 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is uncertain to start Thursday, Oct. 8, against the Houston Texans, according to sources. Luck plans to test out his shoulder Thursday, but the colts are prepared if they must start QB Matt Hasselbeck. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said his team will "do the right thing," and that could mean resting Luck.
Fantasy Tip: Luck ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) would be at the bottom of the elite tier if he goes. Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) would be a very low-end flyer on FantasyScore. However, he had an impressive showing last week and has a good matchup.
Wed, 07 Oct 2015 10:51:21 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had a pretty good performance in Week 4, and if Andrew Luck (shoulder) is unable to go, Hasselbeck might be worth the flyer on FantasyScore.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:11:41 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 6, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look like Hasselbeck will be starting again for the Colts on Thursday night against the Houston Texans. Andrew Luck is expected to be healthy enough to start, so Hasselbeck will revert to his backup role.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 18:15:23 -0700
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) could be on target to play in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans Thursday, Oct. 8, as the team released QB Josh Johnson. QB Matt Hasselbeck also said Monday, Oct. 5, that he does not expect to play Thursday, indicating Luck will be ready.
Fantasy Tip: The Texans defense was terrible in Week 4 in Atlanta, but Luck ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is still a risky play for FantasyScore players given the fact he is coming off an injury.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 15:06:14 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck was solid in relief of QB Andrew Luck (shoulder), as he threw for 282 yards and one touchdown in a 16-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) may go back to the sidelines next week, but he may have to go again since the Colts have a short week before facing the Houston Texans on Thursday, Oct. 8. Keep an eye on this.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:36:11 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck will replace QB Andrew Luck in the starting lineup Sunday, Oct. 4, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a questionable replacement for Luck owners, but he is a better target for contrarian owners on FantasyScore. Jacksonville has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:17:22 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is not expected to play Sunday, Oct. 4, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. QB Matt Hasselbeck will replace Luck in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Deactivate Luck in all formats. Look to the free-agent waiver wire for New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick or Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr as a one-week play.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 10:24:47 -0700
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited for the third straight day in practice Friday, Oct. 2, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. However, Luck wasn't on the field in the portion of practice open to the media. Luck is questionable for Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Colts will take into account the fact that they play on a short week against the Houston Texans next Thursday. QB Matt Hasselbeck would start in Luck's place if he doesn't play.
Fantasy Tip: We find it hard to believe that Luck ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) won't suit up against the Jaguars. However, it may help explain his disappointing start to the season, and you have to wonder how effective he'll be if he does play. Most folks will avoid Luck at the high daily price, but you could gain an advantage with him as a contrarian play if you're willing to take on a little extra risk.
Tue, 03 Mar 2015 23:25:55 -0800

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 20:46:52 -0800
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck praised QB Matt Hasselbeck for helping the offense in variety of ways. "I lean on him every week," Luck said. "He is a huge part of helping me prepare, helping this offense prepare. He's a great sounding board for any player on our offense. He has the answer to just about every question."
Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck was re-signed by Indianapolis, and keeping around a veteran backup that Luck seems to trust and rely on certainly shouldn't hurt Luck's development.
Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:39:40 -0800

That topic came up maybe in September, October, November (of 2012), somewhere in there. I would be excited about the opportunity because it would be basically having the opportunity to stay. But again, there's so much that goes into those things. But from my perspective, yeah, absolutely."
Tue, 05 Feb 2013 21:38:35 -0800

"What also goes with that role is stepping in if he can't go, so I knew all that coming in. Some guys might feel differently at the stage I am in my career or whatever.

Thu, 01 Nov 2012 06:15:42 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck said he plans to involve TE Jared Cook in the offense more. Cook, who has 28 receptions for 373 yards this season, reportedly requested a trade earlier in the week, presumably disappointed over his lack of playing time. Cook played only 42 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 8, and he's played less than 50 percent of the snaps in six of the eight games so far this season. He's been targeted an average of five times per game. "I know how I feel about him, and I know how coaches feel about him," Hasselbeck said. "He is a great player. If anything, I feel like I should throw him the ball more. He makes plays for us and I like him a lot. He is definitely a big part of what we are doing."
Wed, 31 Oct 2012 20:58:55 -0700
