Jets to stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB

Monday, November 28, 2016, 5:41pm

New York Post - [Full Article]

Eight is not enough for Todd Bowles to pull the plug on Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Jets lost their eighth game of the season Sunday, a 22-17 loss to the Patriots, but Bowles said Monday Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback next Monday, when the Jets play the Colts.

Fantasy Impact:

Those who cheer for the team, and perhaps even the NY media, seem to want the Jets to play Bryce Petty, the 2015 fourth-round pick, with an eye toward the future. But Bowles said that was not even a consideration after the Patriots loss. Fitz didn't play poorly most of the game but had a fumbled that pretty much sealed the fate of the Jets late in the game.

Colts hopeful to have WR T.Y. Hilton (back) Week 13

Colts HC Chuck Pagano is "optimistic" on WR T.Y. Hilton.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton injured his back on Thanksgiving and the good news is he's had some extra time off. He did not practice on Monday, according to reports. The bad news is this is a Monday night game against the Jets, so owners will have to save a spot for Hilton in their lineup or at least have a backup plan.

Colts QB Andrew Luck back on practice field

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

He may not have final clearance through the concussion protocol yet, but Andrew Luck is at least back on the field.

Per Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts quarterback was back on the field with his teammates this morning as the team resumed work for this week’s game with the Jets.

Luck was wearing a red non-contact jersey but he wears that anyway. Players have to go through workouts and emerge symptom-free as part of being cleared by an independent neurologist. He missed Thursday’s game against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck also has the benefit of an extra day since they play the Jets Monday. Seems like he's on track to play in Week 13.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion, out) did not practice Wednesday. Luck is out for Thursday night’s game against the Steelers. Scott Tolzien will get the start. It’s a downgrade for most of the Colts’ skill players.

Wednesday, November 23, 2016, 8:58pm

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Generally midweek downgrades are a bad sign for player availability. If Moncrief can’t play, Phillip Dorsett figures to get a bump in snaps.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton indicates QB Andrew Luck won't play

Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 5:15pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

There probably won't be a miracle recovery in Indianapolis this week. Andrew Luck, who was placed in the concussion protocol on Monday, will probably not be healthy in time for the Colts' Thanksgiving game against the Steelers.

That's according to Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, who indicated to reporters Tuesday that Luck will not play. Here's what ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported:

Asked on a conference call when the Colts found out Andrew Luck wasn't playing, T.Y. Hilton said, "we found out in the team meeting room when he wasn't there. Coach brought it to our attention." Talked about wanting to "win for him."

Related players: Scott Tolzien

Fantasy Impact:

The Colts haven't officially declared Luck out, but he doesn't seem likely to play. The story said only Davante Adams of the Packers has been cleared on a short week following a concussion this year. Scott Tolzien would start in place of Luck if he's not cleared.

Big Ben to see Ravens-like defense on short week

Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 12:46pm

The Times - [Full Article]

The Steelers will face the Indianapolis Colts on a short week, but it isn't taking much time for the players to become well-versed on their defense.

Indianapolis defensive coordinator Ted Monachino was hired in the off-season after spending the past six years as a linebackers coach with the Baltimore Ravens. The Colts already ran an attacking 3-4 scheme before Monachino's arrival, and he's since implemented several Ravens-based concepts.

"We're seeing a lot of Baltimore looks," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Wednesday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

While it may seem like bad news for Big Ben owners, the story goes on to say for as much as the Colts defense resembles Baltimore in tendencies, it lacks in production. The Ravens are second in the league in total defense, but the Colts are 30th, giving up a league-worst 284 passing yards-per-game. Roethlisberger has torched Indianapolis over the last two seasons, finishing with a combined 886 yards, 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions in two lopsided wins.

Colts QB Andrew Luck in concussion protocol

Monday, November 21, 2016, 6:20pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Colts could be without Andrew Luck when they play the Steelers at home on Thanksgiving Day.

The team announced that the quarterback is in the concussion protocol.

Related players: Scott Tolzien, T.Y. Hilton, Phillip Dorsett, Donte Moncrief

Fantasy Impact:

The timing is bad for the Colts who will be on a short week. It's a night game against the Steelers on Thanksgiving, so owners should probably have a backup plan. It will also downgrade the Indy receiving weapons. Scott Tolzien would get the start if Luck can't play.
