Joel Corry of the National Football Post: I've confirmed that (Colts RB) Trent Richardson's suspension for conduct detrimental voids the guarantees of his $3,184,062 2015 base salary.

Fantasy Impact:

If his suspension stands, the Colts can cut T-Rich without paying him for the final year of his contract. Look for the team to shore up the RB position this offseason.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Wayne isn't much of a fantasy option at this point, but he'll be out there against New England.

Fantasy Impact:

With Trent Richardson inactive, Dan Herron should see plenty of action with Zurlon Tipton serving as Colts RB2. This may mark the end of the Trent Richardson era in Indianapolis.

Friday, January 9, 2015, 6:47pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Wayne is expected to play, though his production has fallen off of a cliff this season. He has broken the 40-yard mark once in his last seven games.

Colts won't reduce Dan Herron's touches due to fumbles

Colts are going to stay the course with Dan Herron in spite of the fumbles per HC Chuck Pagano. Reducing touches might kill a guy’s confidence.

Fantasy Impact:

Herron finished with 22 touches for 141 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals, but fumbled twice, losing one. Zurlon Tipton played more snaps after Herron's first fumble, but Herron was in for all of the passing down work, which led to 10 catches for 85 yards. Herron should be a good play in what might be a high-scoring game against Denver.

OL A.Q. Shipley
LB Henoc Muamba

Fantasy Impact:

Trent Richardson was questionable with an illness, but it appears that he will play today. We prefer Dan Herron as a daily fantasy option.

Bengals Inactives

QB AJ McCarron
WR A.J. Green
DB Chris Lewis-Harris
OL Tanner Hawkinson
DL Devon Still
TE Jermaine Gresham
WR James Wright

Fantasy Impact:

A.J. Green was ruled out yesterday, so look for Mohamed Sanu to lead the team in targets, while Brandon Tate is likely to see a big increase in snaps. The Bengals are likely to go run heavy and try to play keep away from the Colts.

Friday, January 2, 2015, 5:04pm

Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 18. Richardson is likely to play, but may be limited, further boosting Dan Herron’s upside in a good matchup against Cincinnati.

Friday, January 2, 2015, 5:04pm

Colts WR Josh Cribbs (not injury related, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 18.

Friday, January 2, 2015, 5:04pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (groin, probable) missed practice Friday after taking full reps Thursday and is probable for Week 18. Wayne will be out there against Cincinnati, but he isn’t much of a fantasy option at this point.

Friday, January 2, 2015, 5:04pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 18. Allen makes his return this week. He is our #4 TE this week.

Marques Colston might be back with the New Orleans Saints next year. But just in case he isn’t, the Saints cherished his game-winning touchdown in Sunday’s 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for all it was worth.

Colston was awarded a game ball after turning a short pass into a 36-yard TD with 1:57 remaining. And the usually-stoic veteran even shed a tear, fellow receiver Robert Meachem told The Advocate.

“You couldn’t have scripted a better ending,” said Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who acknowledged that assistant coach Joe Vitt had made the team aware of certain milestones they could reach in the season finale -- including the fact that Brees and Colston could move into fifth place in NFL history with 68 touchdowns as a duo (they broke a tie with Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne).

Fantasy Impact:

Brees, Meachem and receiver Kenny Stills all insisted that they expect Colston to be back in 2014, even though his future is in doubt since he’s due $7 million in salary and bonuses. But the emotion they all expressed made it clear that they’re prepared for the possibility Colston, 31, might be done after nine seasons with the Saints. Colston could take a pay cut to stay, the story pointed out, but Saints may want to move on with a healthy Brandin Cooks back next year to go along with Stills, who emerged this year after injuries slowed his start to 2014.
