Andrew Luck is a Top-10 Option in Week 8

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has thrown for four touchdowns in three of his last four games and has found himself as a top-10 fantasy quarterback over that entire span.

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.

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.

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.

Chester Rogers Leads Colts Wideouts in Receptions and Yardage

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Chester Rogers caught eight passes for 66 yards in the team's 24-38 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday. With No. 1 wide receiver T.Y.
