Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Burton has been a reliable target for Philip Rivers over the last few weeks and has taken over the starting role. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (undisclosed) is not practicing Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Doyle reportedly left practice before it was finished for a non-injury reason, so Thursday's absence could just be a continuation. Certainly something to monitor, though, if you're considering using Doyle or another Indy tight end in Week 8.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said Thursday, Oct. 29, he is not thinking about his uncertain NFL future as he's playing out his final season under his current contract with the Colts. 'My work speaks for itself,' Hilton said. 'If they want me back, they want me back.'
Huddle Up: Hilton leads Indy in targets (37) but has only caught 20 for 242 yards and no TDs -- marking his slowest start in nine seasons. Until we see some signs of life, he's only a WR3/flex consideration in deep leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Burton has been targeted 16 times in three games since returning from injury and appears to be the main tight end for the Colts. He should have success against the Detroit Lions and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (leg) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list and was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 28. The team has 21 days to add him to their 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Pittman has missed the last month because of the injury, so he may need at least a week of practice before he is cleared to play. Fantasy players can monitor his progress but should avoid him at this point.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines posted five receptions for 27 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he didn't attempt a rush.
Huddle Up: Hines is only worth keeping around on a roster in deeper PPR leagues of 12 or more teams. The Colts are off in Week 7 before returning to action in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton was limited to one catch and 11 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It was easily Hilton's worst showing of the season. Hilton has also failed to score a touchdown in each of his first six games, dropping down to WR4 or flex status in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll look to bounce back in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions after the team's bye.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle registered three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: It was a good performance considering Trey Burton also had 58 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for a score. Philip Rivers loves to use his tight ends, and he finally jelled with both rather nicely. They'll use the bye to work on more rapport before returning to action in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal registered four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Pascal found the end zone for the first time since Week 2, and his yardage total was his second best of the season while posting a high in catches. Still, he has a ways to go before he is worth using outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. The Colts are off in Week 7 before facing the Detroit Lions in Week 8.

Indianapolis Colts WR Marcus Johnson ended up with five catches for a career-high 108 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and his second-career 100-yard game. He also has three straight games with at least one reception of 25 or more yards.
Huddle Up: Johnson has nine receptions for 188 yards, averaging a gaudy 20.9 yards per reception in his three games this season. He is worth scooping up for depth in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but you might want to wait until Week 8 since the team is on its bye in Week 7.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton ended up with four receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown while also running for a one-yard score in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It was easily Burton's best showing in three appearances with Indianapolis, as he continues to look more comfortable with his new team. If he continues at this rate he could re-emerge as a TE1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, his team is off until Week 8 in Detroit, so reserve him for now.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran 12 times for 60 yards in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added four receptions for 55 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The rookie's average yards per rush were a season high, as was his total scrimmage yardage total. He will get a much-needed rest in Week 7 before returning to action in Detroit after the bye.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 29-of-44 passes for 371 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It was easily the best day of 2020 for Rivers, as he had a season-best yardage total while also posting his first multi-TD performance, too. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 8 after the team's bye.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers' four touchdowns passes through the first five games of the season are the fewest of his career.
Huddle Up: Rivers has yet to throw multiple touchdowns in a game this year, and he has been held under 250 yards in four straight. He's a low-end QB2, at best.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Burton has been targeted 11 times in the two games since returning to the lineup and appears to a popular target for Philip Rivers. Fantasy players probably can still find better options to use and can keep Burton on the bench.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 16, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hilton is coming off his best game of the season but still has not posted more than 69 yards in any game in 2020. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (calf) was spotted standing on the sideline at practice on Wednesday, Oct. 14. He is still expected to return following the team's Week 7 bye.
Huddle Up: Indy's passing game has struggled this season, and part of that likely has to do with the absences of Pittman and Parris Campbell. Keep an eye on Pittman's recovery, and if he's ready to return in Week 8 he could be worth stashing on your bench.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers will remain the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, according to comments made by head coach Frank Reich on Monday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: "Philip is our quarterback" were the key words from Reich on Monday when he was asked if the thought of turning to Jacoby Brissett had been considered in light of Rivers' recent play. The 38-year-old has yet to account for more than one touchdown in his first five starts with the Colts, and there's an argument to be made that his mistakes are the reason they aren't 5-0. With the Colts looking at a Week 7 bye, it's possible Reich will change his tune if Rivers looks bad again in Week 6 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton posted five catches for 33 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Philip Rivers loves to use his tight ends, so Burton could be in line for some decent fantasy production once they really start to jell and get on the same page. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle did not record any offensive statistics in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns on two targets.
Huddle Up: Doyle appears to be well behind Trey Burton for touches among the tight ends, as the latter had five grabs for 33 yards on six targets. Don't bother with Doyle in fantasy football right now.

Indianapolis Colts WR Marcus Johnson posted three receptions for 53 yards on his three targets in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Johnson needs to do this on a more regular basis before fantasy owners pay any attention to him outside of the very deepest of leagues. He'll try to duplicate the success in Week 6 against the Bengals.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton registered six receptions for a team-high 69 yards on 10 targets in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Hilton has posted at least three receptions in each of his five games, but Sunday marked his season best in terms of yardage and he has yet to find the end zone. It's been a slow process jelling with new quarterback Philip Rivers. Hilton has been more of a low-end WR3 or flex fantasy option at this rate. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines posted three rushes for eight yards in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two receptions for 22 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The five total touches were his lowest since Week 2 when he saw the rock just once. It's the Jonathan Taylor show in Indy right now and Hines has rather limited fantasy appeal unless something happens to the rookie.

Posted 10/12/2020 2:21 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 12 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two catches for 17 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: The rookie has found the end zone three times in the past four outings and he has had at least 12 carries in each of the four games since Marlon Mack went down. Taylor remains a strong RB2 or flex fantasy play in most leagues. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 21-of-33 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. One of the interceptions were returned for touchdown.
Huddle Up: Rivers failed to throw a touchdown for the first time in five games, and he has just four TD strikes and five interceptions through five games. He hasn't had a 300-yard game since Week 1, either. Rivers has devolved into a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 9, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Hilton has been held to under 55 yards in each of the four games this season but has been targeted at least five times in three of the four games. He is not a must-start option at this point but can be a flex option in some leagues.

Indianapolis Colts LB Darius Leonard (groin) on Friday, Oct. 9, was ruled out of the team's Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Key IDP alert as Leonard, the team's leading tackler, will miss a matchup against the league's top rushing team.

Indianapolis Colts LB Darius Leonard (groin) on Thursday, Oct. 8, was doing high steps and running on the side, testing his groin injury during practice.
Huddle Up: Leonard, Indy's leading tackler with 27 combined, sounds like he is doing more Thursday after sitting out Wednesday, and we'll see if the team's practice report reveals any more about his status.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox caught one of his two targets for a 13-yard touchdown in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: The Colts made the questionable decision to try to force-feed the ball a bit to Trey Burton (five targets) in his team debut, but it resulted in only two catches for 16 yards. It goes without saying that Indianapolis' low-volume passing attack is hurting everyone involved in it from a fantasy perspective, although it is clear Alie-Cox has quickly emerged as a trusted option in the red zone. He'll be on the low-end TE1 radar in Week 5 against a Cleveland Browns defense that has been pummeled by tight ends so far.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton hauled in three of his five targets for 29 yards in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Hilton's slow day wasn't unexpected versus the Bears' defense, but he has yet to crack 10 fantasy points in PPR leagues through a quarter of the season. Granted, things have changed a little bit in the first month as the Colts have embraced more of a conservative, low-risk passing attack to cater to their strong defense, but it's still a bit of a shock coming from a player who was generally considered a strong WR2 in fantasy drafts. He needs to be on benches in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
