Colts' 1st round pick remains out with knee injury-- Fri Aug 28 6:05 pm --
Rookie WR Dorsett likely to miss tilt with Rams
Rookie WR Phillip Dorsett (knee contusion) has not practiced all week. Dorsett has worked on the sidelines with trainers doing rehab. He is not expected to be available for the St. Louis Rams game on Saturday night. He could be a game-time decision.(Global Post)
FF Today's Take:Over the years, there have not been many occasions where teams have three fantasy-relevant wide receivers. However, Andrew Luck just might complete enough passes this season to make one of Phillip Dorsett or Donte Montcrief worth owning, in addition to T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson. For now, Montcrief with his health and experience has a leg up, but that could change over the course of the season.
Colts, Hilton agree to five-year extension-- Thu Aug 13 5:20 pm --
$65 M, $39 M guaranteed
The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a contract extension with fourth-year receiver T.Y. Hilton on Thursday. The deal is for five years and is worth $65 million -- $39 million of which is guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed.
Hilton's $39 million guaranteed is nearly twice as much guaranteed money as any other player on the Colts roster. Quarterback Andrew Luck is second on the team in that category at $22.1 million, according to the Roster Management System.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Hilton will play his rookie contract out at $665,000, but his extension will make him the fourth-richest receiver - as things stand now - in the league once it kicks in after the season. It's a vote of confidence the Colts are confident in undersized wideouts Hilton and Phillip Dorsett working in tandem long-term with Donte Moncrief once Andre Johnson calls it a career.
