Fantasy Tip: It is not looking good Richardson to play in Week 8, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. Ahmad Bradshaw would receive more work if Bradshaw misses the game and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $6,300.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is ahead of schedule in terms of his knowledge of the offense, and the team believes he will perform when he is on the field, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.
Fantasy Tip: Moncrief may become more involved in the passing game as the season moves on and could have an expanded role in Week 8 if Reggie Wayne is not able to play. Moncrief could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues as well as FantasyScore since he only costs $3,000.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look promising for Wayne to play in Week 8 at this point. Wayne could be limited by the injury if he is active, so owners may want to avoid spending $5,800 on Wayne at FantasyScore this week.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he expects to play in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured in the second half of the Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and could have returned. However, he was held out because the game had already been decided.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should still play it safe and wait to see him participate in a full practice session before plugging him into the lineup. If Richardson cannot go, or suffers a setback, Ahmad Bradshaw ($6300 or 12.6 percent of cap) would be in line for even more touches.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor Wayne's practice participation for the rest of the week to get a better idea of his status for Week 8. Wayne has a price of $5,800 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to consider using a healthier option.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Richardson will be able to practice later in the week. Richardson probably will continue to share time with Ahmad Bradshaw if he is active for the game. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option for owners.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen said he was not expecting to be as involved in the red zone as he has been this season. He has five touchdowns in seven games, and three of those scores have come on plays in the red zone.
Fantasy Tip: Although Allen shares the tight end role with Coby Fleener, Allen has been the more reliable of the two this season. He will take up 11.4% of the cap ($5,700) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he is worth considering as the Colts take on a Pittsburgh defense that has already been burned by Jordan Cameron, Owen Daniels and Greg Olsen this year.

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agents RB Jeff Demps (Buccaneers) and Konrad Reuland (Jets) to their practice squad and released QB Dominique Davis and WR Chandler X. Jones from the practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne's (elbow) injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could cause him to miss a game or two, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Chuck Pagano hasn't revealed the results of Wayne's MRI exams, however. Wayne said his injury wasn't serious after the Week 7 win. He finished the game against the Cincinnati Bengals with just four catches for 15 yards, and he had two drops. WR Hakeem Nicks could receive a heavier workload if Wayne needs some time to heal from his injury. Nicks had zero catches on one target against the Bengals after catching just two passes for 18 yards the previous week.
Fantasy Tip: Monitor Wayne's practice status this week but be prepared to ignore him at FantasyScore in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Nicks could be a sneaky sleeper selection if Wayne is forced to sit out.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) said he is still working his way back to pre-injury form, but he looks a lot better than he did in training camp, according to beat writer Stephen Holder. Allen has 33 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns thus far.
Fantasy Tip: Allen ($5,700; 11.4% of your cap) has been a solid value buy at tight end on FantasyScore and could receive a boost if WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) misses time.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) could miss time with his elbow injury. Beat writer Stephen Holder tweeted that he isn't receiving good vibes from the situation, but it doesn't sound major. The team is receiving multiple opinions on the injury.
Fantasy Tip: Wayne's absence would signal FantasyScore value boosts for Hakeem Nicks ($3,900; 7.8% of your cap) and Donte Moncrief ($3,000; 6%). TE Dwayne Allen ($5,700; 11.4%) would also receive a boost. Nicks would be a solid flex option, while Moncrief would enter the fringe of flex possibilities.
