Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal (knee, foot) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Pascal has emerged as a steady, but low-upside WR3/FLEX option as a starter with the Colts. He has a good Week 12 matchup against the Tennessee Titans if he can take the field.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25. Rivers said he will be able to play in the Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: Rivers will miss a few days of practice but likely will be able to play unless he suffers a setback. He should have some success against Tennessee Titans and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) was pretty sore Monday, Nov. 23, according to head coach Frank Reich. The team will monitor the injury and see how Rivers responds this week. He headed to the injury tent late in the Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Rivers is riding high after outdueling Aaron Rodgers and helping the Colts sweep their four games against the NFC North Division this season. It sounds unlikely Rivers will miss an AFC South showdown against the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, but see how he does in practice Friday before making a final determination for your fantasy lineup.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had three receptions for 36 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Here's a couple interesting tidbits: 1) Hilton's last game with 100-plus receiving yards came on Dec. 23, 2018, with Andrew Luck at QB, and 2) Hilton's last touchdown was on Oct. 20, 2019, a string of 14 games. Perhaps it's time to unofficially change his name to T.Y. Travelodge. Jokes aside, he's only a flex target in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught three passes for 66 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: Pittman opened the scoring for Indy on a simple crosser that ruptured into a 45-yard touchdown but did little else the rest of the day. Pittman has strung together a nice three-game run, highlighted by his first 100-yard performance against the Titans, which he'll face again this week. He has WR3/flex value.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins had four carries for 21 yards on Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Green Bay Packers. He also had a 15-yard catch.
Huddle Up: Wilkins' load has dropped from 21 touches in Week 8 to 13, eight, and now five in three subsequent games. It's pretty clear that Taylor and Hines have defined roles, and Wilkins is mostly there in case Taylor can't get going or makes a critical mistake. That's not the type of player you can stick in your lineup.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines carried the ball six times for two yards in a Week 11 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Hines also caught three passes (on four targets) for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: There was a lot of speculation that Hines would be the primary option for the Colts against the Packers on Sunday, but he couldn't get anything going on the ground, and the team made the switch to Taylor at halftime. A rematch with the Titans could be just what the doctor ordered, though, as Hines hit them for 115 yards and two scores in Week 10. Try to find a spot for him in your lineup.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor carried the ball 22 times for 90 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Nov. 22. He added four receptions for 24 yards.
Huddle Up: An afterthought most of the past three weeks, Taylor carried the load Sunday afternoon when Nyheim Hines couldn't get anything going on the ground. Taylor ran hard and left plenty of yards (and a TD) on the field when the Colts were being called for holding on practically every play. It sure seems like the Colts will play the matchups, and that might be bad news for Taylor in next Sunday's rematch with the Titans; the rookie managed just 37 total yards in their TNF meeting.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) completed 24 of 36 passes for 288 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers. Rivers also suffered a toe injury during the game but is not expected to miss time.
Huddle Up: For the most part Rivers peppered the Packers with short throws and let his receivers make plays in space. He also had some good fortune with a couple of deflected balls falling between multiple defenders and a fumble return for a touchdown overturned on replay. Rivers injured his toe during the game, but he's the same guy that played the AFC Championship Game with a torn ACL so don't expect him to miss any time.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines appears likely to get the bulk of the carries in Week 11's game versus the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Hines had 70 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards and two total touchdowns in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. His recent performance, combined with inconsistent play from rookie RB Jonathan Taylor, mean that Hines should continue to see plenty of offensive snaps going forward. He merits consideration as an RB2 option in fantasy leagues, especially in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle on Saturday, Nov. 21, cleared the league's concussion protocol, and his questionable designation was lifted for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Doyle will be back after missing Week 10, and that will further muddle the Indy tight end picture with Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox also involved. Burton remains the best fantasy bet of the bunch, but he's a low-end TE2.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Burton caught seven passes over the last three games but was limited to 39 yards during that span. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 20, but is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox posted very good numbers early in the season but has been held to under 40 yards in four of the last five games. He is sharing playing time with other tight ends on the roster and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 20, but is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Hilton has posted at least 50 yards in only one of the last five games and has not shown a good connection with Philip Rivers this season. He can be at most a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox has caught three passes in each of the last three games but has posted at least 50 yards in only two games in 2020. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Burton had a bigger role in the passing game earlier in the season but has been limited to 39 yards over the last three games. He will see a few targets this week but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox caught three of four targets but for just 19 yards in Week 10. He won't retain much fantasy value once TE Jack Doyle is back in the lineup.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Doyle remains in the concussion protocol and will need to return to the practice field this week before being put back into fantasy lineups.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton had three catches for 24 yards in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Burton showed a spark when he returned from injury back in October, but he has just 39 receiving yards combined over his last three games. It doesn't appear like Burton, Jack Doyle or Mo Alie-Cox are going to separate from one another, making them all waiver fodder.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had four receptions (on five targets) for 40 yards in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Hilton was back on the field after sitting out Sunday with a groin injury; given the short turnaround it looks entirely possible the Colts held Hilton out since the division matchup with Tennessee was more important than Week 9 with Baltimore. Unfortunately, Hilton's numbers didn't get any better, and he extended his streak of games without a touchdown to 13 -- he last scored against Houston on Oct. 20, 2019. If you're desperate you can hold onto Hilton in the hope he turns things around. Otherwise, it sure feels like it's time to move on.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. had seven receptions for 101 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. He also carried once for 21 yards.
Huddle Up: Pittman's emergence over the last two games is an encouraging sign for a team that hasn't gotten a lot of production out of its receivers this season, most notably T.Y. Hilton. Pittman's eight targets were three more than fellow WRs Hilton and Zach Pascal, which is another step in the right direction. If Pittman is still on waivers he's someone to scoop up as a possible WR3/flex play down the stretch.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins carried the ball eight times for 28 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: After exploding for 113 total yards in Week 8, Wilkins has posted 38 and 28 yards, respectively, in the two subsequent games. Right now Wilkins isn't doing nearly enough to be owned and, from a fantasy perspective, is mostly functioning to undercut Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor carried the ball seven times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 25 yards in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Taylor caught a couple of nice passes and trucked a defensive back on Thursday night, but after the opening drive it was mostly Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the backfield. Plus, when Taylor did get the ball as a runner it was typically up the gut in short-yardage situations. While we wouldn't advocate cutting Taylor, it might be time to leave him on the bench if you have viable alternatives.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines had 12 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. Hines also caught five passes (on six targets) for 45 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Prior to Thursday night, Hines' biggest game of 2020 came back in Week 1 when he tallied 73 total yards and two TDs. Against the Titans, Hines went off for 115 combined yards and a pair touchdowns; that gives him four scores in his last three games. There's some legit Austin Ekeler vibes with Hines, but the Colts haven't seen fit to give him steady usage. Hines deserves to be owned, though knowing when to deploy him in your lineup could be tough.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 29 of 39 passes for 308 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Indianapolis had Tennessee on its heels all night long, hitting them with tons of short passes and misdirection for long sustained drives that seemed to wear the Titans down in the second half. Rivers was sacked just once, right before halftime, as Tennessee's season-long struggles pressuring the quarterback continued. Expect to see more of this quick-hitting attack going forward from Rivers and the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans, although he is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 12. He leads all tight ends in averaging 16.1 yards per reception this season.
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox is likely to split the tight end reps with Trey Burton on Thursday, making up for the loss of Jack Doyle, who is out with a concussion. MAC can be a decent TE2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and he isn't a bad low-cost DFS option if he doesn't suffer any kind of setback.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton is expected to see an expanded role in the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 12 with TE Jack Doyle (concussion) out.
Huddle Up: Despite the fact Doyle is out, Burton might not see a giant role with Mo Alie-Cox questionable due to a knee injury, but expected to play. Burton might be a decent TE2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but don't expect a giant performance.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 10. The Colts did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Hilton will be back in the lineup after missing the last game but has not been a big part of the passing game in 2020. He could be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 9. The Colts did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Hilton did not play in the last game but appears to have a chance to be in uniform in Week 10. He has been a disappointing fantasy option this season and may only be a flex option this week.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Nov. 9, and is not expected to be able to play in Week 10 versus the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: With Colts-Titans serving as this week's Thursday night game, go ahead and consider Doyle out now. Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton will see more snaps as a result. Both could serve as last-ditch options at the position in deeper fantasy leagues.
