Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Luck remains out indefinitely. Jacoby Brissett is a Sneaky Start against the Texans. It hasn’t been pretty, but Brissett is the No. 11 fantasy quarterback over the last four weeks. The Texans are No. 26 in QB aFPA.

Bengals WR John Ross wasn't part of game plan

ESPN - [Full Article]

For those waiting to see what Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick John Ross can do, it could be a while.

Ross was a non-factor in his first game back since his injury in Week 2 and played only six offensive snaps against the Colts. He has played a total of 11 snaps this season.

“John got to dress [Sunday] because I chose to suit him up, and Cody [Core] couldn’t go," said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. "He’ll continue to practice and get an opportunity as it goes. But he was not part of the plan going into the game.”

Fantasy Impact:

Ross, who has been nursing a knee injury, finally got back on the field after practicing for the past two weeks. However, even though the Bengals were down two receivers due to Core's and Tyler Boyd's injuries, the Bengals still had five receivers active between A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell, Alex Erickson, Josh Malone, and Ross.

Report: Colts QB Andrew Luck to visit shoulder specialist

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts shut down quarterback Andrew Luck two weeks ago after he suffered a setback in his throwing shoulder due to soreness. They will reportedly have their star quarterback see a specialist.

Jay Glazer reported that Luck will see a specialist on his surgically repaired right shoulder and that if they don’t find answers, they could shut him down for the rest of the season, per WTHR’s Bob Kravitz.

Related players: Jacoby Brissett

Fantasy Impact:

It's certainly not looking good for a Luck return this year. Reports say the Colts would play Luck if he does return this season no matter what their record is, but right now it seems they don't have answers to Luck's shoulder pain.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders questionable, no practice all week

Saturday, October 28, 2017, 7:42pm

Chiefs official site - [Full Article]

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders did not practice again Saturday, meaning he did not practice all week with his ankle injury; however, he is listed as questionable for Monday night against the Chiefs.

The questionable tag, by definition, is supposed to mean the player has a 50-50 chance to play. Generally, players who do not practice all week do not play, but it is not unprecedented for a player to still play after not practicing at all. T.Y. Hilton, for example, did it for the Colts in recent years.

Related Players: Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler

Fantasy Impact:

Sanders owners, if they do not have a better Sunday back-up option, should handcuff him with teammate Bennie Fowler for Monday night. Hopefully, there is more clarity on this before Sunday kickoffs; however, prepare accordingly. Also, move Sanders into your FLEX as well, if at all possible, to give you more options for Monday night than just another receiver.

'Chunk' plays hurting Colts defense

Friday, October 27, 2017, 4:43pm

Mike Chappell - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts are allowing a league-high 40 completions of 20+ yards, or 'chunk' plays as they are referred to. That number averages out to 5.7 per game. They gave up 55 'chunk' plays in 16 games last season—3.4 per game.

Fantasy Impact:

Facing the Colts this week are the Cincinnati Bengals and WR A.J. Green. The Bengals star wide receiver is averaging 15.5 yards per catch this season (35 receptions, 545 yards) and has caught at least one pass of 16+ yards in each game. He's also recorded 7 receptions of 20+ yards on the year. There's a chance Green will haul in a long pass or two this week, as he faces the defense allowing the most 'chunk' receptions. We have Green ranked as our No. 2 WR this week in what is a fantastic matchup, according to our aFPA metric.
