Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. Moncrief reportedly participated in a light practice on Friday, but officially he remained out. If he’s out or limited, Andre Johnson and Phillip Dorsett would both see an increase in playing time. Remember, Johnson had his best fantasy line of the year (6-77-2) against his old team back in Week 5, and Matt Hasselbeck was under center. The Colts play early on Sunday.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Griffin is not a bad dart throw for TE streamers this week. He had a touchdown in back-to-back games before a 1-20 outing (on five targets) against the Patriots last week. The Colts are #27 in TE aFPA.

Varying reports within Colts on Andrew Luck's status

ESPN - [Full Article]

Though Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay raised hopes that Andrew Luck could return from his lacerated kidney injury Sunday, when or if Luck will play again this season is in question, sources told ESPN.

Irsay had told NFL.com that he thought Luck should be able to play Sunday against the Houston Texans, but others in the Colts organization have not gotten any indication that that is close to happening at this time. As recently as last week, they did not expect Luck to be able to play against the Texans.

Luck told reporters Monday that his goal is to practice this week but that he doesn't feel 100 percent yet. He said he will play again this season.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he had "not heard anything from our trainers or doctors" on Luck practicing this week.

Fantasy Impact:

There seems to be a lot of varying reports within the organization. The Colts are handling Luck as carefully and cautiously as possible, the story said, and with good reason. Doctors know that Luck cannot risk elevating his heart rate because it would pump more blood through his kidneys, delaying the healing process, according to medical sources.

T.J. Yeldon has sprained left knee

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars won't know the status of rookie running back T.J. Yeldon until later this week.

Yeldon sprained his left knee Sunday against Indianapolis, left the stadium on crutches and was scheduled to undergo tests Monday.

The Jaguars (5-8) host Atlanta (6-7) on Sunday.

Coach Gus Bradley says Yeldon ''got his knee got bent a little bit'' against the Colts and was unable to return to the game. Bradley says general manager Dave Caldwell is considering bringing in another running back since Jacksonville already has Toby Gerhart, Bernard Pierce and Corey Grant on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact:

To make matters worse, the story said Yeldon is also dealing with a sprained right ankle and a groin injury. Denard Robinson would start if Yeldon can't play against the Falcons.

Colts think Matt Hasselbeck will be 'available' Week 15

Monday, December 14, 2015, 6:41pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts do not expect quarterback Matt Hasselbeck to practice Wednesday, but they are optimistic he’ll be “available” for Sunday’s pivotal AFC South game against the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“Yeah, I’m hopeful,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “He’s banged up, like a lot of the guys. He’s a warrior. He came back in that game after taking a few good licks. Matt is a tough guy and great competitor. I fully anticipate him being available for us.”

Pagano saying he thinks Hasselbeck will be “available.”

Fantasy Impact:

As the story says, it leaves the door slightly open that Andrew Luck could return Sunday. Luck has missed the past four games with a kidney and abdominal injury, but he could return to practice this week.
