Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. We’re monitoring Fournette this week, but he should be able to play through the injury. Given the matchup, Chris Ivory is a Sneaky Start against the Colts.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) practiced fully Wednesday. Bortles is a Sneaky Start in a great matchup against the Colts.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) shut down due to soreness

Zak Keefer - [Full Article]

Colts GM Chris Ballard: Andrew Luck has had soreness in his shoulder. Won't practice this week.

This is what we call a setback.

Fantasy Impact:

We aren't terribly optimistic about Luck returning this season to offer good fantasy value, but the chances of a return increase as long as the Colts are in the playoff hunt. At a certain point, the team's record and Luck's situation may convince the Colts to shut him down for the year, but we aren't there yet.

Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) to miss rest of season

Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night.

Related players: Marlon Mack, Frank Gore

Fantasy Impact:

This should be good news for Mack owners. The team said they wanted to get Mack more involved heading into Week 6, but that didn't happen. He had just two carries while Turbin carried three times and caught four passes. One would think Mack could eat up a good portion of Turbin's workload moving forward.

Source: Titans QB Marcus Mariota will play Monday night vs. Colts.

Related players: Matt Cassel

Fantasy Impact:

Potential very good news for those planning to play Mariota. He likely won't be 100-percent. Of course, we may not officially know until inactives are posted an hour and a half before game time on Monday.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota officially questionable for MNF

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 3:18pm

Jim Wyatt - [Full Article]

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota has been listed as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Colts.

Mariota practiced on a limited basis throughout the week. The team is scheduled to practice again on Saturday night, but the team submitted an Injury Report to the league with Mariota’s projected playing status in advance.

Fantasy Impact:

With the Titans submitting an Injury Report before the final practice of the week, hopefully we will get a better indication after Saturday's practice and before Sunday lineup locks for Mariota's Monday night status. With Jacoby Brissett available in many leagues, that would be a convenient back-up option in this Colts-Titans game.

Mixed Messaging from Chuck Pagano on RB Marlon Mack

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 2:55pm

Mike Wells - [Full Article]

Based on coach Chuck Pagano's comments earlier this week, the fourth-round pick should see an increase in his workload in the backfield that also features Gore and Robert Turbin. Gore is still the team's primary running back, while Turbin excels in short-yardage situations.

It's also important to note Pagano also said this week Mack is not ready to be an every down back or third down back. And then he also said this during the week:

"I think it'd be wise to try to find ways to get him the football and get him more involved," Pagano said about Mack. "I think that would've happened by itself had he been available the entire time. Marlon is a change-of-pace guy, he's a speed guy. He's an edge guy. When he gets outside on the perimeter he's dangerous, and we all saw that."

Related Players: Frank Gore, Robert Turbin

Fantasy Impact:

The only clarity we have here is that Chuck Pagano thinks Marlon Mack (maybe) needs more touches, but he doesn't view him as an every down back. Perhaps, the Colts view Mack as a satellite back only for 2017. Frank Gore is not going to lose his job unless he gets injured (which he never does) because he's an elite pass protector. That's huge for the Colts who have had an injured franchise quarterback. As for Mack, he's seen 11, 7, and 10 touches in his three games this year. Like Washington's Chris Thompson, he'll likely need to remain extremely efficient with his touches to be fantasy relevant each week with Gore still in the picture.

Colts TE Jack Doyle clears concussion protocol

Mike Chappell on Twitter - [Full Article]

Longtime Colts beat reporter Mike Chappell said Saturday TE Jack Doyle is cleared to play after completing the concussion protocol.

Related Players: Jacoby Brissett, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief

Fantasy Impact:

Jack Doyle has had a slow start to the season, but with Andrew Luck's penchant for finding tight ends in the end zone, Doyle's fantasy stock should go up with his starting quarterback returns. For Week 6, he's a fringe TE1 in 12-team leagues in the wasteland that is 2017 fantasy tight ends.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday. He’s out this week.

Friday, October 13, 2017, 6:43pm
