Better Luck(y) than good may not apply to the NFL, or at least not for the Colts. The Colts got their star quarterback behind center this season, but has not resulted in much success, as the team is 1-5 with the sole win coming against the Redskins in a game that was brutal to watch. The Colts top WR has been banged up and the injury and time share among the RBs has left much to be desired. While the Colts offense is currently 11th in points scored, much of that has been achieved while playing from behind or in garbage time. For fantasy purposes, it doesn’t matter much when the points are accumulated, but what can you expect from the offense moving forward?

Well, B_Don, riding solo for this podcast, takes a look at the Colts offense and breaks down the player profiles for the Colts offensive weapons not named Andrew Luck or T.Y. Hilton. B_Don profiles the secondary pieces in the offense to see who you can trust rest of season. Chester Rogers, Ryan Grant, Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle, Nyheim Hines, Marlon Mack, and Jordan Wilkins are profiled to give you an idea of what they are from an ability standpoint. B_Don also looks at the offense as a whole to give you fantasy values for these players moving forward.

    Re: The Colts, I am worried about the terrible WRs, tapping good passes into the arms of the defenders for interceptions. I have Luck on my team, and paid a premium to get him. Now I am worried.

    One unrelated question- is there a website I can compare split stats of WRs vs CBs? For example, Julio Jones got shut down by Joe Haden. AJ Green, against Joe Haden historically, has fared very poorly. Other WRs, on the other hand, may do well against him. Get what I am saying? Is there any tool out there? I would consider paying for it, if it is not free.

    Thanks in advance!

      @Oliver: Hey Oliver, I have Luck in a few places as well so I’m riding that train with you this season. Hopefully, the volume can make up for some of the deficiencies of the WRs. Getting T.Y. and Doyle back in the offense should help Luck out quite a bit as well.

      In regards to the stats, unfortunately, I don’t know of anywhere that provides those raw stats. There are different providers that evaluate the match-ups each week and provide varying levels of stats, but I’m not sure where to find those stats for perusal.

        @B_Don: I have Hilton, too. Was hoping for some major double TD counting this year.

        Thanks for responding re: the stats. I guess it would be kind of hard to compile such figures. We just have to rely on historical vs. the team, I guess.

        All the best!

          @Oliver: historical vs team would be quite a bit as useless as hitter/pitcher matchups in baseball, probably more so, defenses chance quite a bit year to year from team to team. in the haden example, he’s not close to as good as he was years ago now.

      @Better Call Limehouse: Richard (in PPR I think he’s the back you want if Marshawn can’t get back), Martin (I’m a hopeless Dougy Fresh apologist), Mostert, Gore J Will, Booker.

    standard (well, .2 PPR so pretty much), RJ2 or mostert?

      @A Wesley Snipes Life: same league, drop stills for any of t.smith (NO), t.will (LAC), beasley, richardson?

        @A Wesley Snipes Life: Seems like the Bucs aren’t going to give RoJo much of a chance, so, give me Mostert on the off chance he takes over there. I don’t think he will, but seems like a better bet at this point.

        I’d be fine moving on from Still for Smith or Beasley. I don’t think T Will is more than a boom or bust play any given week and I think it bounces back and forth between the 2 Williams.

  4. Tee Not Air Jags says:

    best order (PPR) of kearse, m.will, callaway, t.smith (NO)?

    Tre’Quan, M Will, Callaway, Kearse. Targets are inconsistent with all of these guys so give me the guys with the best offense and/or most skill.
