| Donte Moncrief has now dealt with injuries in two of his first three seasons in the NFL and will need to stay on the field to avoid the "injury-prone" label. Moncrief was able to catch a touchdown pass in seven of the nine games he played in 2016 making him a very attractive target for fantasy owners hoping for a full season breakout. A closer look at his numbers reveals only two games with over six receptions in 2016 and five in 2015. Low reception totals make Moncrief far more inconsistent than his numbers indicate on the surface. Nonetheless, the talented receiver out of Ole Miss has little competition to his playing time and will have plenty of room to work playing opposite Hilton. The stars might align to allow Moncrief to take a leap into fantasy WR2 territory yet a simple step forward should make him a solid WR3. Either way, simply staying on the field for most of the season should yield career high production across the board in 2017.
|Colts to start QB Jacoby Brissett|
Scott Tolzien goes to the bench

|Sources: The #Colts are planning on starting QB Jacoby Brissett on Sunday vs. #AZCardinals. Former starter Scott Tolzien goes to the bench.

FFToday's Take: The Colts were dreadful in Week 1 with Tolzien at the helm (9-18, 128 yds, 2 INTs) but Brissett has been with the team for roughly 2 weeks so it's hard to imagine this offense turning things around in Week 2. Colts players should be on your bench, however Donte Moncrief is worth a desperation flier as he should avoid Patrick Peterson on most plays.
| Luck out, Scott Tolzien to start Week 1|
Luck removed from the PUP list

|The Indianapolis Colts will go into Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams without quarterback Andrew Luck, general manager Chris Ballard said Monday.

FFToday's Take: This was the assumption all along but now it's official. Luck was removed from the PUP list but is still not ready to play and has an uncertain timetable. Tolzien is a poor Week 1 option against the Rams and gives a slight downgrade to T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and TE Jack Doyle.
