FF Today's Take:Anytime a player takes a step back on the injury front during the middle of the week, it's noteworthy. Owners need to keep an eye on Hilton's practice reports over the next two-plus days before deciding on locking him into their lineups. With Hilton hurt and Phillip Dorsett (foot, hamstring) also ailing, Andrew Luck could be throwing to Chester Rogers, Devin Street and Jack Doyle against Tennessee this weekend.
Moncrief could be Luck's new Reggie Wayne-- Thu Aug 18 5:20 pm --
Potential dark-horse candidate to lead Colts in catches
The Colts have been looking for a possession receiver ever since Reggie Wayne tore his ACL in Week 7 of the 2013 season. Donte Moncrief has the size at 6-foot-2 to get space against defensive backs and the speed to get open. Moncrief may not lead the Colts in receiving yards or yards per catch this season, but it won't be surprising if he leads them in receptions, because he'll be the receiver Luck turns to when a play breaks down.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Roughly half of Mike Wells' reasoning is flawed, as Moncrief isn't exactly a "possession receiver" or comparable to an aging Wayne. Moncrief also isn't Luck's go-to guy; that honor belongs to T.Y. Hilton. With all of that said, Moncrief brings much-needed size to the Colts' receiving corps and is the most likely candidate to see a huge uptick in targets following the loss of 200-plus targets in the offseason. He's a strong WR2 and should be a target for RB-RB drafters.
T.Y. Hilton impressive in training camp-- Thu Aug 11 3:35 pm --
FF Today's Take:Like Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett (to a lesser extent), Hilton is set up for a boatload of targets as the Colts try to fill the 200-plus targets left behind by the departures of player such as Coby Fleener and Andre Johnson. Owners need to be aware of Hilton's propensity to play up (or down) to his indoor/outdoor and home/road splits, but if his game is taking the next step, perhaps he'll level out those splits a bit. He's on the WR1/WR2 borderline in most leagues.
