Fantasy Tip: Hilton has been one of the better receiver in fantasy football this season and has recorded a touchdown in four of the last five games. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:41:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has recorded more than two catches in only one of the last five games and has 30 yards or less in four of those games. He should receive a few targets during the game but should be avoided in all leagues.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:38:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gore has been a consistent performer for fantasy owners this season but has not found the end zone in the last three games. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:35:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Luck has thrown at least one touchdown in every game this season and has four 300-yard games in seven weeks. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues even though he will be facing a solid Kansas City Chiefs defense.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:34:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moncrief is expected to play after missing the last several games because of his injury. He should have a solid role in the passing game this week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:39:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: He was limited in practice all week after receiving one carry on two snaps in Week 7, so one has to wonder how Charles has regressed from last week. Spencer Ware is an elite RB1 play again this week against another soft run defense, while Charcandrick West should see some snaps in relief.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief has been out since Week 2. His return is great news for an offense that has been incredibly reliant of T.Y. Hilton during his absence and gives Andrew Luck a strong red zone option with Dwayne Allen out. Although it is difficult to trust players coming off such long layoffs, Chiefs-Colts has all the makings of a shootout. Look for Moncrief to hit the ground running as a high-upside WR2.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is expected to miss at least one more game. Jack Doyle has emerged as a full-time player in his absence, although this may not be the week to use him, as Kansas City's Eric Berry is usually successful in shutting down tight ends.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle), DT Henry Anderson (knee), LB D'Qwell Jackson (rest), DE Kendall Langford (knee), LB Curt Maggitt (ankle), OG Jack Mewhort (triceps) and WR Chester Rogers (hamstring, foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27. FS Mike Adams (shin) was limited. CB Vontae Davis (rest), DT Zachariah Kerr (ankle), LB Robert Mathis (rest) and OT Joe Reitz (back) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: He was limited yesterday, so he should be good to go this weekend. Unfortunately for Dorsett, Donte Moncrief is returning and he hadn't done much without Moncrief anyway. If T.Y. Hilton can't play, though, Dorsett could take over Hilton's role. Even so, benching Dorsett is the safer route.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:45:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gore should be well rested for this weekend's matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are yielding over 100 rushing yards per game to running backs so far this year, making Gore a viable RB2 candidate this weekend.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:39:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Luck will play this week as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He has a solid matchup versus the Kansas City Chiefs, too. Even when hurt, Luck has proven that he can achieve QB1 status. Play him as such in Week 8.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:33:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Even with the limited status, Moncrief should play this weekend after a multi-week absence. He'll have even more value if T.Y. Hilton can't play. Giving Moncrief a full gamut of plays may not be the case this week in his return from a prolonged hiatus, but he should be in starting lineups in what is a tasty tilt with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:26:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's never good when a player misses practice after not being listed on the injury report the previous day. Hilton's status will really need to be monitored heading into the weekend. He's a WR1 if he's active, but if he misses practice tomorrow then a plan B needs to be prepared.
