Wed, 03 Feb 2016 14:38:29 -0800

Colts | Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley tag-team

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:37:09 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley combined to guide the team to a 30-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Jan. 3. Freeman finished 15 of 28 for 149 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Lindley was 6 of 10 for 58 yards and one score.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman and Lindley will likely go back to mop-up duty and will have little FantasyScore value moving forward, as it is clear both are backup quarterbacks. Andrew Luck will assume No. 1 status next year in Indianapolis, but the question is will it be with a new coach?

Colts | Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley share reps

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 19:23:13 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley, each signed this week, took a majority of the quarterback reps in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: With Matt Hasselbeck and Andrew Luck dinged up, and Charlie Whitehurst done for the season, it appears one of the newly signed signal callers will make a start in Week 17 for the Colts. Ouch. Avoid either for FantasyScore purposes, and maybe load up with the opposing defense for an added bonus. Mistakes will likely be plentiful.

Colts | Indy down to Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:38:04 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley are the likely options to start in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Both quarterbacks were signed this week, so they have very little experience with the offense. That should make them off limits to everyone in daily games.

Colts | Indy starting QB unknown

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:43:44 -0800

There is no update on who the Indianapolis Colts plan to start at quarterback in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans between QBs Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley and Stephen Morris. QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) has already been ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: No matter who is starting under center for the Colts this week, it won't be pretty. Make sure to downgrade the likes of T.Y. Hilton ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Donte Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap), too. There's a case to be made for the Titans defense ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) as a deep sleeper defense.

Cardinals | Ryan Lindley will start playoff game

Thu, 01 Jan 2015 11:42:11 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will be the starting quarterback in the Wild Card playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Lindley will be starting his third straight game since taking over for an injured Drew Stanton (knee). He has thrown two touchdowns and four interceptions in his two previous starts. Lindley has a price tag of $5,300 on FantasyScore, but owners probably can find a better option to use.

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 11:06:32 -0800

Cardinals | History not on Ryan Lindley's side

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 09:17:08 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley enters the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks with 181 pass attempts without a touchdown, which is the most in NFL history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Seahawks have allowed only two passing TDs and have intercepted four passes in their last five games. Lindley has the worst completion percentage (51.4), fewest yards per attempt (4.3), least amount of touchdowns (0) and lowest total QBR (9.1) among 60 quarterbacks with a minimum of 150 passing attempts since 2012, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a cheap price of $3,600 at FantasyScore, you should avoid Lindley like the plague in daily games. Nothing about his skillset or the matchup shows promise here.

Cardinals | Ryan Lindley to start in Week 16

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 11:18:39 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will be the starting quarterback in Week 16, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said the team will also have a package for QB Logan Thomas during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Lindley will start in place of Drew Stanton (knee) but will be facing a very good Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 16. Owners should not consider using Lindley has a starting option this upcoming week.

Cardinals | Ryan Lindley, Logan Thomas both options

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 17:43:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Logan Thomas and QB Ryan Lindley are both options to start in Week 16, but head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Dec. 12, that he won't make a decision on a starter until Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of which player ends up under center, they shouldn't be considered a viable starter at FantasyScore in Week 16 with the Cardinals set to face the top-ranked pass defense of Seattle.

Cardinals | Drew Stanton going for tests

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 09:11:40 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) will undergo more tests when the team returns to Arizona, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "We'll take it very slow with him and see how it goes once we get in the MRI and all that information," Arians said. Stanton suffered a right knee injury as a rookie in 2007 and had surgery, and he also tore ligaments in his right knee in 2003 in college. QB Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton in the game Thursday, Dec. 11, with Arians electing Lindley over rookie QB Logan Thomas because of Lindley's experience.

Fantasy Tip: We should know the extent of Stanton's injury later today or tomorrow. If he's forced to miss time, the team will likely stick with Lindley at QB. You can ignore Lindley in all leagues, including at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Drew Stanton injures knee

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 19:39:06 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) is questionable to return to the team's game Thursday, Dec. 11, after suffering a right knee injury. QB Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona's offense has already been struggling since Carson Palmer went down with a knee injury, and if Stanton misses time, it is tough to trust any of the Cardinals' receivers with a third-string QB under center.

Cardinals | Expect competition at QB

Sat, 26 Jan 2013 06:57:12 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he is keeping an open mind when it comes to the quarterbacks on the team's roster. Arians will give QBs Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley an opportunity to earn the starting job; however, he is not opposed to an outside candidate earning the nod as well. "I'm sure that (general manager) Steve (Keim) and (vice president of player personnel) Jason (Licht) are going to be looking behind door number two," Arians said. "If door number two is a better option, we'll go to door number two." Arians said he's looking forward to meeting with all three quarterbacks but isn't in a rush to evaluate their chances at this point.
