Colts | Matt Hasselbeck ruled out for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 15:15:13 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs, back) did not practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out of the Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts have yet to name their starting quarterback for Week 17, and whoever starts under center for Indianapolis should be avoided in all fantasy formats. One of Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley or Stephen Morris are expected to start against the Titans.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck, Donte Moncrief out

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 12:12:03 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs, back) and WR Donte Moncrief (toe) both missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was already doubtful to play this weekend and is a long shot. Stay away from any Indy quarterback who starts this one against the Tennessee Titans. Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has faded in the second half as he's battled injuries and should also be ignored on FantasyScore, even if he plays.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck, Donte Moncrief absent

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 16:00:28 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs) and WR Donte Moncrief (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.65 of cap) isn't expected to play this week, which is why the Colts signed Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley earlier in the week. Andrew Luck has already been ruled out, so Indianapolis is desperate at the position. Stay away from Colts quarterbacks this week. As for Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8%), he hasn't tallied over 100 yards in five weeks and has only scored once in the last eight games. With Freeman or Lindley expected to start, Moncrief is avoidable in Week 17.

Colts | Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck won't go on IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:46:28 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) and Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) won't be placed on the Reserve/Injured list in case the Colts make the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts have a very small chance of making the postseason, so don't expect to see Luck or Hasselbeck again this season. Luck's season was a huge disappointment, mainly due to injuries. But if he's back and healthy in 2016, he should be considered an upper-tier quarterback in fantasy drafts.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck doubtful

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 13:59:52 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) is doubtful to play in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Hasselbeck isn't ruling anything out, but he's "not super optimistic" that he will play in Week 17. QB Stephen Morris could play against the Titans if QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) isn't ready to return.

Fantasy Tip: Avoiding Hasselbeck everywhere is the right move in all fantasy formats. The Titans are a top-five fantasy matchup for quarterbacks this year, so Luck could have a surprisingly great game if he returns to action. It's a big risk on FantasyScore, but it could set you apart from your competition.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck might sit Week 17

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 21:49:25 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) said Sunday, Dec. 27, that he was not optimistic about playing in Week 17 after suffering a sprained AC joint against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: If Hasselbeck is sidelined for the season finale, it's likely Charlie Whitehurst would get the starting nod, although it is possible Andrew Luck could return, too. Stay tuned.

Colts | Charlie Whitehurst effective in relief

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:44:46 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Charlie Whitehurst completed 9 of 14 passes for 78 yards and no touchdowns in relief of QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder). The Colts won 18-12 over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Whitehurst ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) did just enough to help Indianapolis win. Is he worth starting in FantasyScore? Someone will have to lead that Colts offense if Hasselbeck can't do it. Keep an eye on the injury reports this week. There are better options out there, but some teams may be resting their top QB's in Week 17 so Whitehurst may not be a bad option for the cost.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck will not return

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 11:34:33 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) is out for the rest of the game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Charlie Whitehurst will take over as the starting quarterback. This news could bode well for Frank Gore as the Colts could focus on the run game for the rest of this contest. Gore already had 72 yards and two touchdowns at halftime.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck probable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 11:52:45 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he's probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore against the Miami Dolphins.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck, Andrew Luck limited

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 11:10:55 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) and Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) were both limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has already been ruled out this weekend and may be forced to sit in Week 17, too. Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is expected to start against the Miami Dolphins, but he's one play from being knocked out, so he's not a viable fantasy option at all.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck has another ailment

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 07:11:21 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, neck, arm, jaw) has been on a liquid diet since the Week 15 game because of damage to his jaw. He's hoping to return to solid foods Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) isn't expected to be in danger of missing the Week 16 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. However, there isn't a lot of upside for him on FantasyScore.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck limited

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:20:08 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is already expected to play this week, but head coach Chuck Pagano said earlier in the week that Hasselbeck is beat up from the feet up. Hasselbeck is still a backup fantasy quarterback and should be an afterthought on FantasyScore.

Colts | QB tandem practicing for Colts

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 09:39:27 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) and QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, neck, arm) are practicing Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Luck isn't expected to receive clearance to play in Week 16. Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) faces off against the Miami Dolphins but isn't a very stout FantasyScore play.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck expected to play

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 15:55:26 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (rib, neck, arm) is expected to play in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. It will be Hasselbeck's eighth start of the season. He took part in a walkthrough practice Tuesday, Dec. 22, and isn't in a sling like he was last week.

Fantasy Tip: Pagano admitted Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is beat up from the feet up, so there is no guarantee the veteran passer can make it through another full game. For that reason and plenty of others, Hasselbeck makes for a very poor daily option.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck beat up

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:45:34 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (rib, neck, arm) is "beat up from the feet up," according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano will evaluate Hasselbeck further Tuesday, Dec. 22, and the Colts may have to turn to QB Charlie Whitehurst in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins. QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) has already been ruled out, and the Colts want him to be cleared by doctors for game action with enough time to practice all week before he returns.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck is no safe bet to finish the entire game this weekend even if he starts, making him one to avoid in all fantasy formats. Whitehurst doesn't deserve your attention, either.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck left briefly

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 10:41:56 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back) left the game briefly in the fourth quarter in Week 15 with a back injury, but he later returned.

Fantasy Tip: The 40-year-old backup quarterback is beat up right now. He was 17-for-30 for 147 yards and a touchdown and interception in the Week 15 loss to the Houston Texans. Andrew Luck is pushing to return this weekend, so Hasselbeck might return to a backup role. Even if he receives another start, he isn't fantasy material.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck probable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 10:05:00 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is in line to start against the Houston Texans. His upside is rather limited on FantasyScore, though.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck back at practice

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 09:19:05 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) was back at practice again Friday, Dec. 18. If he can't play in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, QB Charlie Whitehurst will receive the start.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts are still holding out hope Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) can gut it out and play in a crucial game. However, pain tolerance will be a big issue, and Hasselbeck may not be very effective. Stay away from the Colts quarterback situation in fantasy this week.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck has rib separation

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 12:28:30 -0800

Updating an ongoing story, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is dealing with a rib separation that is "incredibly painful." Hasselbeck is unlikely to be able to throw without pain in his ribs. However, Hasselbeck is still expected to be available in Week 15 against the Houston Texans. The Colts are hoping Hasselbeck can do more in practice Friday, Dec. 18. QB Charlie Whitehurst would receive the start if Hasselbeck can't play.

Fantasy Tip: It's shaping up to be a game-time decision for Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) with Andrew Luck already ruled out. Whoever Indy is starting in this one, you'll want to stay away in all fantasy formats. Downgrading the Colts receiving weapons is wise, too.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck limited

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 11:54:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) was listed as limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) still has some hurdles to pass before he plays against the Houston Texans, and he's no guarantee. He's not worth a look in any fantasy format, and neither is Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) if he has to start.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck not guaranteed to start

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 11:35:31 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is not guaranteed to start against the Houston Texans in Week 15, and he said heavy breathing is the biggest challenge for him.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will be the guy if he's able to suit up with Indy already ruling out Andrew Luck. If Hasselbeck can't play, it'll be clipboard Jesus, otherwise known as Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap). Neither option for the Colts this weekend is a serviceable fantasy option.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck resting Wednesday

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 16:10:43 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) was resting in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16, and head coach Chuck Pagano is hoping to have Hasselbeck back at practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and to play in Week 15 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is expected to start against Houston with Andrew Luck out again. If he can't go, Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) would be the guy. Neither quarterback should be on your fantasy radar, though, especially against a tough Texans defense.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck, Donte Moncrief sit

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:30:43 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) and WR Donte Moncrief (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear right now if Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) or Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2%) will start for the Colts this week, but we know it won't be Andrew Luck. Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8%) doesn't have as much value without Luck, and the Houston Texans have defended wide receivers better than average this year, so invest in the Colts' passing game at your own discretion.

Colts | Andrew Luck back in Week 16?

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 11:30:40 -0800

The Indianapolis Colts are hoping QB Andrew Luck (kidney) can return in Week 16, but he won't play in Week 15 against the Houston Texans. QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is hopeful of returning by the end of the week. If not, QB Charlie Whitehurst will start this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Luck ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) would have an enticing matchup against the Miami Dolphins if he makes it back next week. Keep him stashed for that reason. Neither Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) nor Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) are worth of a sleeper pick at quarterback against a strong Texans D.

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 10:32:24 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) will not play Sunday, Dec. 20, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is expected to start.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should get the call against the Houston Texans, but he's a FantasyScore option without a lot of upside.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck out of practice

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 08:47:47 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is expected to start in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, but Andrew Luck (kidney) returned to practice Wednesday. Hasselbeck isn't a great FantasyScore option if he goes.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck should start

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 13:43:03 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) should be healthy enough to start in Week 15, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck has struggled and been beat up over the last two weeks, during which the Colts have lost. Andrew Luck apparently still isn't ready to return, so Hasselbeck remains the starter. He still shouldn't be considered a starting fantasy quarterback next week against the Houston Texans, though.

Colts | No fractures for Matt Hasselbeck

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 12:15:37 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) is sore Monday, Dec. 14, but he looks to have avoided any fractures as the damage is all in his soft tissue.

Fantasy Tip: If neither Hasselbeck nor Andrew Luck is able to take the field in Week 15, it would be up to Charlie Whitehurst to maintain the Colts' tie of the AFC South division lead. If Whitehurst starts for the Colts, he still shouldn't be started on your FantasyScore squad.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck in sling

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 11:50:55 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, arm) was seen leaving the stadium with his left arm in a sling Sunday, Dec. 13. His status for Week 15 against the Houston Texans is shaky.

Fantasy Tip: With Andrew Luck unlikely to return this week, either, the Colts could be looking at starting Charlie Whitehurst in an important divisional matchup. If Whitehurst is under center, you'll want to downgrade all of Indy's receiving options significantly.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck unable to finish game

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 13:33:08 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) left the team's Week 14 game because of injured ribs and was not able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the situation to see if Hasselbeck, Charlie Whitehurst or Andrew Luck will be the starting quarterback in Week 15. The Colts offense has not done a lot over the last few weeks, so owners may want to pass on whoever receives the start.

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 11:06:17 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, back) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 11, and he's probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($5,800, 11.8% of cap) appears he'll start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are probably options with more upside on FantasyScore after Hass was banged up last week.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck takes part in practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:38:06 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will be the starting quarterback in Week 14 unless he suffers a setbacks. He has played well at times while being the starter but is coming off a Week 13 game where he struggled. Owners in most leagues should have better options to use in their lineups.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck sore, could play

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:08:08 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, ribs) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, and is still sore. The hope is that he'll play this week, however, and he could be listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously Hasselbeck ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will need to be monitored after Indy's next few practices. If he isn't able to go, Charlie Whitehurst ($4,500, 9.0%) would start in his place. Whoever starts has a great matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, though, and they're both fairly cheap for quarterbacks.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck expected to start

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 14:30:10 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, rib) should be able to participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, and is expected to be the starting quarterback against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Hasselbeck's MRI revealed a stiff neck and a mild rib separation.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck could be limited during practice this week but appears to be on track to play against the Jaguars. He has played well at times while filling in for Andrew Luck but is coming off a game where he struggled. Hasselbeck will have a favorable matchup against Jacksonville, but owners probably will be able to find better options to use.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck unsure of status

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 14:04:44 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, shoulder) said he is not sure if he will be available to play in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but head coach Chuck Pagano said he believes Hasselbeck will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the week to see if Hasselbeck will be able to play. Hasselbeck suffered his first loss of the season in Week 13 and was held under 200 yards for the first time. He has thrown five touchdowns and four interceptions over the last three game and is not a great option if he plays.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck goes for X-rays

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 22:53:21 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck, leg) was lifted late in the second half of the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a lopsided score in the fourth quarter. Hasselbeck went for X-rays after the game, but it was unclear if the tests were for his neck or leg injury he suffered during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck might be a bit of a question mark for the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Avoid him in FantasyScore due to his uncertain status. Charlie Whitehurst might start if Hasselbeck cannot go.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck posts another good game

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 14:22:51 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns as the Colts defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 25-12, on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) posted his first 300-yard game in four years and improved to 4-0. Andrew Luck's job is safe, so no worries there. However, Hasselbeck has helped the Colts stay in contention during this period.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw catches two TDs

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:06:02 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Ahmad Bradshaw caught two touchdown passes from QB Matt Hasselbeck in a 24-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) may be worth the lower FantasyScore cost if he has a role in Hasselbeck's offense. This game looked promising for Bradshaw to get some short-yardage workouts.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck throws two TDs

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:25:42 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw for two touchdowns Sunday, Nov. 22, in a 24-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Hasselbeck finished 23 of 32 for 213 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) needed a big game like this to keep the Colts in contention and he got, albeit with a little help from Adam Vinatieri. His yardage numbers weren't great, but at this lower price he makes for a decent FantasyScore pickup.

Colts | Andrew Luck will miss time

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:12:17 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) will miss two to six weeks with an abdominal tear and a lacerated kidney he suffered in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos in Week 9. Luck will not need surgery, however. QB Matt Hasselbeck will start in Luck's place.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously a big loss for the Colts. The timetable for Luck's return isn't certain and depends on how he progresses throughout his recovery. The fantasy value of all Colts' receivers, including T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Andre Johnson, takes a hit with Luck sidelined. Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a capable backup, as he has already shown this season, and may be a decent sleeper pick on FantasyScore in the time being if the matchups are favorable.

Colts | Andrew Luck's status unknown

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 13:27:46 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is "day-to-day," and head coach Chuck Pagano will not say whether Luck will return in Week 6 to face the New England Patriots after practicing in full Monday, Oct. 12. Luck is 0-4 in his career against the Patriots and has lost by an average of 29 points. QB Matt Hasselbeck would start his third straight game if Luck can't go.

Fantasy Tip: Luck hasn't played the last two weeks and hasn't looked good at all in the games that he has played in. Look for Luck to be questionable again this week, and he could be a game-time decision, which makes him even that much riskier in all fantasy formats.

Colts | Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck practice

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 09:47:26 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QBs Andrew Luck (shoulder) and Matt Hasselbeck (illness) both practiced in full Monday, Oct. 12, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Luck missed the last two weeks and has been limited in practice, but this is a positive sign that he'll be ready to return in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. Pagano said that Luck "looked good" in practice and was throwing the ball well.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts will definitely need Luck in Week 6 in order to have a shot at beating the unbeaten Pats. After missing the last two weeks and looking pretty bad in the opening two weeks, Luck probably won't be very attractive in his return in daily leagues, though.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck not at full strength

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 16:31:59 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is dealing with a bacterial infection and was still on an IV Thursday, Oct. 8. Hasselbeck is starting against the Houston Texans and said he hopes he can play all four quarters.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts don't have the most ideal situation at quarterback tonight with Andrew Luck out and Hasselbeck ailing. Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a cheaper quarterback option on FantasyScore, but the reward might not be worth the risk.

Colts | Matt Hasselbeck still sick

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 07:32:20 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) will start Thursday, Oct. 8, despite a virus that required intravenous fluids in the hospital after last week's game. Hasselbeck is still sick as he takes on the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Hasselbeck ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had a solid performance last week and has a good matchup against Houston. He's a low-end flyer worth considering on FantasyScore if you're going cheap at QB.
