Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 8, while DT Arthur Jones (ankle) and CB Darius Butler (ankle) are listed as probable. All three players fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24. OT Gosder Cherilus and LB Erik Walden also participated in practice and are no longer on the injury report. Both players received a day off earlier in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson's absence will significantly boost the value of Ahmad Bradshaw ($6,300) at FantasyScore, especially because of Bradshaw's ability to catch passes out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: With the Colts playing an afternoon game Sunday, Richardson ($4,600) needs to be avoided at FantasyScore. Ahmad Bradshaw ($6,300) who has been the more productive back, especially in PPR leauges, is a solid option for your lineups.
Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:00:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Wayne officially out, that will boost the values of T.Y. Hilton ($6,900), Hakeem Nicks ($3,900) and Dwayne Allen ($5,700). Donte Moncrief ($3,000) is now an attractive option as a deep sleeper. The Steelers can be had through the air.

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.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) and OT Gosder Cherilus (rest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. CB Darius Butler (ankle) was limited during practice, while DT Arthur Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:19:53 -0700
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.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:19:08 -0700
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.
