Colts | Matt Hasselbeck not in Colts' plans

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 11:45:51 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck was told by the Colts that he is not in their plans for next season. QB Josh Freeman is expected to back up QB Andrew Luck.

Fantasy Tip: It shouldn't be a surprise that Indianapolis wants to move on from a 40-year-old backup quarterback, especially after the beating Hasselbeck took last season. Luck is still arguably the best fantasy quarterback available despite missing most of last year with injuries.

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 14:38:29 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could have a new backup next season if impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck does not return. QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley are both still under contract and would be next in line to back up Luck.

Colts | Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley tag-team

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:37:09 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley combined to guide the team to a 30-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Jan. 3. Freeman finished 15 of 28 for 149 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Lindley was 6 of 10 for 58 yards and one score.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman and Lindley will likely go back to mop-up duty and will have little FantasyScore value moving forward, as it is clear both are backup quarterbacks. Andrew Luck will assume No. 1 status next year in Indianapolis, but the question is will it be with a new coach?

Colts | Josh Freeman to face Tennessee

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 07:09:33 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Josh Freeman is expected to start Week 17's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman was signed by the Colts less than a week ago and is receiving the starting nod because QBs Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney), Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs, back) and Charlie Whitehurst (hamstring) are all out with injuries. Freeman should be avoided in all fantasy formats and it might not be a bad idea to use the Titans' defense in FantasyScore this week.

Colts | Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley share reps

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 19:23:13 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley, each signed this week, took a majority of the quarterback reps in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: With Matt Hasselbeck and Andrew Luck dinged up, and Charlie Whitehurst done for the season, it appears one of the newly signed signal callers will make a start in Week 17 for the Colts. Ouch. Avoid either for FantasyScore purposes, and maybe load up with the opposing defense for an added bonus. Mistakes will likely be plentiful.

Colts | Indy down to Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:38:04 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley are the likely options to start in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Both quarterbacks were signed this week, so they have very little experience with the offense. That should make them off limits to everyone in daily games.

Colts | Indy starting QB unknown

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:43:44 -0800

There is no update on who the Indianapolis Colts plan to start at quarterback in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans between QBs Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley and Stephen Morris. QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) has already been ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: No matter who is starting under center for the Colts this week, it won't be pretty. Make sure to downgrade the likes of T.Y. Hilton ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Donte Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap), too. There's a case to be made for the Titans defense ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) as a deep sleeper defense.

Giants | Ryan Nassib works as backup

Wed, 28 May 2014 18:33:45 -0700

New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib was working as the primary backup to QB Eli Manning (ankle) during practice Wednesday, May 28, in organized team activities (OTAs). QB Curtis Painter (knee) and QB Josh Freeman also took reps.

Fantasy Tip: Nassib is believed to be on the roster bubble, so he'll need a good showing in offseason workouts, training camp and the preseason to stick. As long as Eli Manning (ankle) is healthy, Nassib won't really sniff the field anyway.

Giants | Keeping options open on Ryan Nassib

Thu, 01 May 2014 12:51:39 -0700

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said he is keeping his options open when it comes to QB Ryan Nassib. "We like Nassib, but he really hasn't had the chance to do a lot for us, and so we're going to take a real good look at him in the spring. We still think he's a really good player. He hasn't had the chance to play yet, but he's going to get a lot of work this spring, and obviously he'll get a lot of work in the preseason. Along with Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman there's competition."

Vikings | Christian Ponder receives another start

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 09:43:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Christian Ponder will be the starting quarterback Week 12. Frazier said QB Matt Cassel likely will be the No. 2 quarterback, but QB Josh Freeman could also be active for the game.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers present a better opportunity for Ponder to succeed, and he's familiar with them, but it's still best to stay away from him unless you're desperate in leagues where you start two QBs.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (shoulder) took most of the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, and expects to play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks.

"He practiced and (was) getting the game plan in and making some throws."

Fantasy Tip: Ponder shouldn't be in any starting lineups this weekend against a ferocious Seahawks defense.
