Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (leg) was diagnosed with compartment leg syndrome in his calf following the game in Week 3 and had surgery Sunday, Sept. 27. Head coach Frank Reich told reporters the surgery went well Monday, Sept. 28, and that he expects Pittman back around Week 8.
Huddle Up: Compartment syndrome refers to increased pressure within a muscle compartment - in this case, Pittman's leg - that causes increased pressure in the muscle and could have resulted in nerve damage down the road, so Pittman appears fortunate to get this nipped in the bud as quickly as he did. From a fantasy perspective, he can be dropped in most redraft leagues for the time being, although there is a distinct chance he'll be useful near the end of the season.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton ended up with three catches for 52 yards on three targets in Week 3 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Hilton has managed at least three catches in each outing, but he has 53 or fewer receiving yards in each game and he hasn't visited the end zone yet. That's bad news for fantasy owners who depend on him as a WR1 or WR2. Hopefully he and new QB Philip Rivers will get on the same page soon. The Colts meet the Bears in Week 4.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed seven times for 21 yards in Week 3 against the New York Jets and he added four catches for 40 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Hines saw a solid piece of the backfield work behind Jonathan Taylor and Jordan Wilkins, as the Colts try to replace the loss of Marlon Mack. He is worth adding in most deeper fantasy leagues, especially in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran 13 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New York Jets and he added a three-yard grab on his only target.
Huddle Up: Taylor is the workhorse in Indianapolis right now, but Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines are also in the mix. Treat Taylor as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 in Chicago.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 17-of-21 passes for 217 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the New York Jets. The touchdown to TE Mo Alie-Cox was the 400th or Rivers' career, and he is the sixth player in NFL history to reach the milestone. Rivers also eclipsed the 60,000 career passing yardage mark in this game.
Huddle Up: Rivers didn't do much for fantasy owners, and he was given an early shower due to the lopsided nature of the score, as Jacoby Brissett finished up. Rivers will look for better fantasy results in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 3 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Pittman had only 47 yards in two games entering play in Week 3 and only receives a handful of targets each game. Fantasy players can avoid Pittman even if he is able to play next week.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Doyle likely will see a solid amount of targets in the passing game and should have a favorable matchup. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Hilton is off to a slow start this season but will have a favorable matchup this week. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Doyle appears to have a good chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He will have a favorable matchup if he plays and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

, Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is participating in practice Friday, Sept. 25, for the second straight day.
Huddle Up: It appears that Doyle has a chance to play after sitting out Week 2. On the flip side, that would knock fellow Indy TE Mo Alie-Cox down a peg or two after his breakout game (5 catches-111 yards on six targets) a week ago.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Doyle is a fringe TE1 when healthy as a big piece of the passing game. TE Mo Alie-Cox should be in line for another big game in Week 3 after catching five of six targets for 111 yards in Week 2.

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (knee) suffered damage to the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that will sideline him indefinitely, according to the source.
Huddle Up: Campbell was hit low on the second play of the game and obviously did not return. It's yet another blow to Indianapolis, which lost Marlon Mack for the season in Week 1. Much as they did in Week 2, the Colts could lean more heavily on the running game led by Jonathan Taylor as a result. Expect the team to find a way to get T.Y. Hilton more involved in Campbell's absence as well. He's the most natural candidate to absorb Campbell's snaps in the slot.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines caught one pass for four yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 and did not receive any carries.
Huddle Up: Hines had a fantastic Week 1 performance but only received one target in the passing game this week. His offensive role probably will change each week depending on the game plan, so he could still be a flex option next week against the New York Jets.

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal caught three passes for 19 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Pascal is off to a slow start to the season but may have a bigger role in Parris Campbell is sidelined for multiple weeks. He could be a possible flex option next week because of the matchup but is not a must-start option.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton caught three passes for 28 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Hilton has been held to under 55 yards in each of the first two games of the season and does not appear to have great chemistry with Philip Rivers at this point. He will continue to receive plenty of targets in the passing game and can be starting option in all leagues next week.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught four passes for 37 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Pittman was a game-time decision leading up to the game but received a team-high six targets during the game. He may have a bigger role next week if Parris Campbell is not able to play. Pittman has a chance to be a flex option in most leagues next week.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox caught five passes for 111 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox was filling in for Jack Doyle and was a popular target for Philip Rivers. He may receive the start again next week and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 101 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Taylor is the clear No. 1 running back with Marlon Mack sidelined and will continue to receive plenty of carries each game. He will be a must-start option next week against the New York Jets.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers went 19-for-25 for 214 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Rivers was without some of his pass catchers during the game but still had a solid performance. He should have a favorable matchup next week against the New York Jets and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Campbell's status in the next day or two. He was coming off a solid Week 1 performance but could miss time depending on the severity of the injury. Zach Pascal and Michael Pittman Jr. would see more time if Campbell is sidelined and could be flex options.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (toe) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Pittman suffered the injury during practice this week, so he may see limited playing time despite being active. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Pittman this week.

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Pascal should see a handful of targets in the passing game against the Minnesota Vikings and probably will be a top three receiver for the Colts. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can be benched if better options are available.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, but is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Hilton will be receiving Fridays off but will be ready for games unless he is dealing with an injury. He showed decent chemistry with Philip Rivers but probably will be able to post better numbers as his connection with Rivers improves. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan disclosed that Reich said "it's too early to tell if Doyle will miss more than one game" due to his injury. With Trey Burton out at least another two weeks on the Reserve/Injured list, the Colts have little choice but to turn to Mo Alie-Cox at tight end. The former VCU basketball player has a tough matchup against the Vikings' linebackers and safeties, but Doyle's absence could free up more underneath targets for someone like Parris Campbell.
