Eric Ebron Quiet Against Bills

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron caught three passes for 31 yards in a 37-5 blowout win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught four passes for 25 yards and two touchdowns in a blowout 37-5 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

T.Y. Hilton on Track to Face Bills

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is expected to be ready when the team takes on the Buffalo Bills in Week 7 after logging a full practice session on Wednesday.

Ryan Grant, Chester Rodgers Both Solid Streamers Against Jets

The Indianapolis Colts offensive identity over the last two weeks has been high-volume throwing, meaning there should be plenty of receptions to go around for the duo of wide receivers Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers in Week 6 against the New York Jets. With T.Y. Hilton unlikely to play, both wideouts should be WR3 options... Read More

Despite Lack of Weapons, Start Andrew Luck in Week 6

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is the first quarterback in NFL history to throw 59 times or more in back-to-back games, and fantasy owners should expect more of the same volume when the team takes on the New York Jets in Week 6. Although it looks unlikely that wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and tight end... Read More

Ryan Grant Pedestrian Against New England

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Ryan Grant caught six passes for 58 yards in a 24-38 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday. Grant operated as the team's top wideout with T.Y.
