Colts have told WR Andre Johnson that they are releasing him, per source.

Related players: Donte Moncrief, Phillip Dorsett

Fantasy Impact: 

Donte Moncrief finished his second season with 64 catches for 733 yards and six touchdowns, but his numbers were a bit depressed due to the midseason loss of Andrew Luck. In seven games with Luck, Moncrief averaged 4.6 catches 50 yards and 0.71 TD (on 7.7 targets per game), which extrapolates to a 73-802-11 season. Fantasy-wise, that’s about what Michael Crabtree scored as the #19 receiver in standard formats. With Andre Johnson out of the way, Moncrief’s playing time and targets should increase a bit. He’s a serious threat to break out in his third season. Phillip Dorsett figures to step into the WR3 role, and will be fantasy relevant assuming the Colts' offense returns to form.
