Colts | Donte Moncrief out 4-6 weeks

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:41:41 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade) will miss four to six weeks with a fractured shoulder blade, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Fantasy Tip: Phillip Dorsett should see a bigger role. He has five catches for 124 yards, but he was targeted 11 times to grab five catches. He should be owned in most leagues now. Dwayne Allen should also see more action. He only has six grabs for 78 yards and a score, but he's a low-end TE1 option moving forward.

Colts | Donte Moncrief not out for the season

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:54:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief's (shoulder) status is still uncertain following a shoulder injury in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos. It is still being determined how much time Moncrief will miss, but he is not expected to be out for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: If Moncrief misses any time, then Phillip Dorsett would suddenly become the Colts' No. 2 wide receiver with T.Y. Hilton maintaining his status as the No. 1 receiver. Dorsett should be claimed off waivers if he is available in standard leagues. He could be worth a start this week in what may be a high-scoring affair against the San Diego Chargers.

Colts | Donte Moncrief to have MRI

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 07:05:04 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on his shoulder, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief has a 7-73-1 line on the year and has been a relatively quiet WR3 in fantasy. Check back for updates for his status for Week 3.

Colts | Donte Moncrief evaluated for concussion

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 20:26:33 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (concussion) is going through the NFL's concussion protocol after leaving the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos due to a head injury.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief posted just one grab for nine yards on three targets before departing. Fantasy owners will want to see him officially return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks before trusting him again. Phillip Dorsett and Quan Bray might benefit with more targets if Moncrief is forced to miss time.

Colts | Donte Moncrief busy for Indy

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 21:35:11 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted six receptions for 58 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief is expected to have a big role in the offense, serving as the No. 2 receiver behind T.Y. Hilton. He is a solid WR4 in most fantasy formats.

Colts | Donte Moncrief almost at full health

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 11:39:10 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) said his surgically repaired toe is 96% to 97% healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief has plenty of time to nurse that toe to 100% health between now and the regular season. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should be in the WR2 conversation with Andrew Luck returning.

Colts | Indianapolis using three receiver sets

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 20:15:00 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton, WR Donte Moncrief and WR Phillip Dorsett have been part of the three-receiver lineup implemented by offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski in the first two days of training camp. Under former offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, Indianapolis primarily used two-tight end sets.

Fantasy Tip: The big winner is Dorsett, who should be on the field enough to approach WR4 territory.

Colts | Donte Moncrief may catch a lot of passes

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 17:50:07 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is expected to lead the Colts in catches this year, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief has definitely shown he's capable of producing in the NFL, and he'll be even better if Andrew Luck can stay on the field. He has WR2 upside in 2016 after posting 64 catches for 733 yards and six touchdowns last year.

Colts | Donte Moncrief skidded without Andrew Luck

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 05:34:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief caught 34 passes for 381 yards and five touchdowns through seven games with QB Andrew Luck under center last season. In the nine following games, Moncrief caught just 30 passes for 352 yards and a single touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, losing Luck was a big blow for Moncrief's fantasy value in 2015. Entering 2016, though, it is Moncrief who isn't 100% healthy after offseason surgery to repair his turf toe, yet the third-year wideout is still commanding a selection in the early middle rounds of drafts. And while there is a lot to like about the chances of a breakout season from Moncrief, you'll just want to be careful that any profit potential isn't squeezed out of his fantasy stock by reaching too early for him in drafts. Keep tabs on his health leading into the season, too.

Colts | Donte Moncrief running routes

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:35:29 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) began running routes earlier this week for the first time since his toe surgery earlier this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief's timetable isn't crystal clear at this point, but he may be somewhat limited in training camp if the Colts want to limit risk of aggravation. If he's full-go by the regular season, though, then he's worth a WR2 selection.

Colts | Brian Tyms stands out in spring

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 20:18:04 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Brian Tyms stood out during organized team activities (OTAs), as he is locked in a battle for one of the two receiver spots behind WRs T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett. Beat writer Zak Keefer noted Tyms emerged from the pack of contenders for the No. 4 job, and he boasts size at 6-foot-3 that the team lacks among their top three receivers. The team expects to keep as many as six receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Tyms could be an intriguing fantasy sleeper if he is able to nail down the No. 4 job in Indy, as he could really be a weapon in the red zone. Stay tuned.

Colts | Dontie Moncrief underwent surgery

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:27:41 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) had surgery on his turf toe early in the offseason, but it's not expected to be a long-term issue.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief will be the Colts' No. 2 wide receiver behind T.Y. Hilton, assuming he's at full health. There is the possibility that Moncrief could have a breakout year if Andrew Luck stays upright. For now, though, Moncrief should be drafted as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Colts | Donte Moncrief suffers injury

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 13:00:53 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) suffered a toe injury during the team's Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief posted decent numbers this season and should be one of the top two or three receivers for the Colts in 2016. He could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues next season.

Colts | Donte Moncrief probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 15:21:03 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable to play in the Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hasn't practiced all week, so it is somewhat surprising to see him listed as probable for Week 17. However, his fantasy value is tied to a yet-to-be-named starting quarterback, which is far from ideal. View the receiver as a desperation start at FantasyScore this weekend.

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 | Donte Moncrief active Sunday

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 09:32:43 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) is active for Week 16's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option this week in FantasyScore.

Colts | Donte Moncrief questionable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 11:53:04 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) was limited Friday, Dec. 25, and is questionable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a midrange option on FantasyScore if he goes against the Miami Dolphins.

Colts | Donte Moncrief out again

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 11:13:19 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is in line to be a game-time decision Sunday, but it's not looking good since he hasn't practiced yet this week. Ignore him in all formats. T.Y. Hilton ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should see more looks, but he should be downgraded with a beat up Matt Hasselbeck running things.

Colts | Donte Moncrief to be game-time call

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 10:39:09 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (foot) is expected to be a game-time decision Sunday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) missed practice all week and played last weekend in Week 15. He posted 16.1 points on FantasyScore and would be a midrange option to consider against the Miami Dolphins.

Colts | No practice for Donte Moncrief

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:30:32 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) sat out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had a rebound game last week, catching five passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. It was his first score in six games, though, and Moncrief has proven to be inconsistent with Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback. Consider Moncrief a low-end WR3 or flex going forward.

Colts | Donte Moncrief finds end zone

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:07:37 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief caught five passes for 51 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief went six games without a touchdown before he picked up his touchdown in Week 15. He has been held to under 50 yards receiving in five of his last eight games. He will be facing the Miami Dolphins next week and is not a great fantasy option for owners.

Colts | Donte Moncrief active Sunday

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 08:55:14 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) is active for Week 15's game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has never missed a game in his career but don't be surprised if he's extremely limited versus Houston. He was listed as questionable on the injury report and didn't practice until Friday, Dec. 18, when he was spotted jogging alongside trainers. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this week.

Colts | Donte Moncrief questionable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 15:01:55 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Houston Texans, and he was seen jogging with trainers at practice Friday, Dec. 18. Moncrief has never missed a game in his career.

Fantasy Tip: If Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) does play, it sounds like he'll be extremely limited, making him one to avoid on FantasyScore. T.Y. Hilton ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) and Andre Johnson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see more looks with Moncrief hobbled, but you'd be smart to downgrade the Colts receivers with a banged-up Matt Hasselbeck at the helm.

Colts | Donte Moncrief back Friday?

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 14:39:01 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe), who is no longer wearing a walking boot, said he expects to practice Friday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Returning to practice tomorrow doesn't necessarily mean Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will play against the Houston Texans. In fact, with Indy's quarterback uncertain against a strong defensive club, Moncrief should be seen as a very weak play this weekend.

Colts | Donte Moncrief sits

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 09:34:48 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (foot) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 17, but he's not wearing a boot.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has one more day before it's time to look elsewhere for a midrange option on FantasyScore. The Colts play the Houston Texans, who have been solid against opposing WRs the last five weeks.

Colts | Donte Moncrief not in boot

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 16:16:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) watched practice from the sideline Wednesday, Dec. 16, but he did not have a walking boot on.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had a boot on earlier in the day. It's a good sign he had it off, but either way that shouldn't make you optimistic about his fantasy chances this weekend. He's failed to find the end zone since Andrew Luck went down, and things won't get easier this weekend against the Houston Texans.

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 | Donte Moncrief has 100-yard game

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 14:49:56 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief caught eight passes for 114 yards but did not score in a 25-12 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has had a lackluster November, with 10 catches and 89 yards entering this game. Despite the breakout performance, Moncrief has done nothing to prove he belongs in the lineup on a regular basis.

Colts | T.J. Hilton unlikely to play

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 16:02:00 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 5, and appears unlikely to play in Week 9 against the Denver Broncos. Hilton was in a boot during practice Thursday for his foot sprain. WRs Andre Johnson and Donte Moncrief are likely to see extra looks if Hilton sits out.

Fantasy Tip: Do not put Hilton ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) in your FantasyScore lineups. The Colts already faced an elite defense in the Broncos, and now it becomes tougher. Fading all of the Colts offensive players in this one is probably the right move, including Andrew Luck.

Colts | Donte Moncrief posts two receptions

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 22:39:19 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief managed a pair of catches for 18 yards in the Week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 2. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) was a victim of rain, inaccuracy of his quarterback and a tough pass defense. He isn't worth using in FantasyScore in Week 9, either, as the Denver Broncos and their sturdy pass defense stroll into town.

Colts | Donte Moncrief finds end zone

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 22:25:53 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted six receptions for 69 yards and a score in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has found the end zone four times in six games, posting 69 or more receiving yards in three of his past five. He is a solid WR2/3 or flex option in FantasyScore at a mid-level price.

Colts | Donte Moncrief to be No. 2 WR?

Sat, 17 Oct 2015 11:50:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is on his way to being the Colts' No. 2 wide receiver behind WR T.Y. Hilton, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.com. Wells said Luck and Moncrief have developed a rapport and that Moncrief's size, speed and big-play ability have made him one of QB Andrew Luck's favorite targets.

Fantasy Tip: It sure didn't look like Moncrief was the Colts' No. 2 receiver last week as Andre Johnson went off against the Houston Texans. Moncrief is a different player with Luck starting, though, and he's played better than Johnson when Luck has been in the game. With Luck expected to start this week, Moncrief could be in for a rebound performance and is worth starting on FantasyScore at $6,300 (12.6% of cap).

Colts | Donte Moncrief developing

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 08:42:32 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is running a wider range of routes this season and is developing into more than a deep threat.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a flex consideration against the Tennessee Titans this week with T.Y. Hilton (knee) banged up.

Colts | Donte Moncrief posts big numbers

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 21:42:30 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted seven receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) was a good addition in standard fantasy formats when it appeared T.Y. Hilton would not be able to play. Hilton was active, but Moncrief shined anyway. Going forward he is a solid FantasyScore option, especially since Hilton hobbled off in the second half.

Colts | Donte Moncrief might start in Week 2

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 18:08:02 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief might move into the starting lineup if WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) is forced to miss time due to the bruised left knee he suffered in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would be an outstanding FantasyScore value if he starts opposite Andre Johnson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap). Since the Colts do not play until Monday night, an official decision might not come until Saturday.

Colts | Indy to be cautious with T.Y. Hilton

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 11:00:43 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) is day-to-day with a bruised knee, but the Colts will be cautious with him and he could miss one or two games depending on how he feels, according to a source with knowledge of his condition. Hilton led the Colts with seven catches for 88 yards on 14 targets in their Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. WR Donte Moncrief's role on the outside will increase if Hilton sits out.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unwise to plan to have Hilton ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) in any of your Week 2 lineups, but let's wait and see what he does in practice this week first. Both Moncrief ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Andre Johnson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be worth a look on FantasyScore against the New York Jets if Hilton sits out, and Phillip Dorsett ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) might also be worth watching.

Colts | Phillip Dorsett favorite for No. 3 WR?

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 08:24:45 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett could be the current favorite for the No. 3 wide receiver position because of his varied skill set. WR Donte Moncrief is also competing for the No. 3 spot.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has played well this preseason. While he is smaller than Moncrief, Dorsett has a speed advantage. Dorsett and Moncrief both have fantasy value in the Colts' high-octane offense, but Dorsett should be drafted earlier right now.

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 09:33:10 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (groin) will not play in the first preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief is competing for the No. 3 receiver job, but he will need to return to the field if wants a realistic chance at the job. Moncrief could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he earns the job during the preseason.

Colts | Indy has competition for No. 3 WR job

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 09:48:54 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WRs Donte Moncrief, Phillip Dorsett and Duron Carter are candidates of the team's No. 3 wide receiver job, and all three have had positive moments during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye out on the competition during the preseason, because the winner of the job should have a solid role in passing game. Moncrief has a little more experience than the other two, which could give him a little edge. All three could be options in fantasy leagues this season depending on their role.

Colts | Donte Moncrief could be returner

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:30:13 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is a candidate to return kicks this season, according to special teams coach Tom McMahon.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief should see solid playing time this season but his fantasy value may take a hit since the team has a lot of weapons in the passing game. There is a chance he could win the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp and could be a late-round option in leagues if he receives consistent targets during the season.

Colts | Donte Moncrief's role expanding

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 18:38:41 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is going to have "more opportunities going forward," head coach Chuck Pagano told the team's official website.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief showed flashes of his potential last season, and with a bigger role in 2015, he should be able to provide WR3 value in the Colts' high-powered passing attack.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief posted seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief saw his most involvement to date thanks to the absence of Reggie Wayne to injury. He could be a very useful option in FantasyScore leagues if Wayne continues to miss time.

Colts | Colts confident in Donte Moncrief

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:53:56 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is ahead of schedule in terms of his knowledge of the offense, and the team believes he will perform when he is on the field, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief may become more involved in the passing game as the season moves on and could have an expanded role in Week 8 if Reggie Wayne is not able to play. Moncrief could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues as well as FantasyScore since he only costs $3,000.

Colts | Hakeem Nicks struggling to gain separation

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 09:14:33 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks continued to struggle to gain separation from defenders in Week 6 against the Houston Texans Thursday, Oct. 9. WR Donte Moncrief may start to phase Nicks out of the wide receiver rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks had just two catches (seven targets) for 18 yards last night against the Texans. He hasn't scored since Week 3 and doesn't have more than five catches in a single game this season. Nicks is a bench player for the time being, and you might want to consider dumping him for better options.

Colts | LaVon Brazill suspended

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:32:14 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR LaVon Brazill has been suspended for at least one year without pay by the NFL for violating the policy and program for substances of abuse.

Fantasy Tip: With Brazill out for the season, Da'Rick Rogers and Donte Moncrief could receive bigger roles on offense in 2014. Griff Whalen may also have a chance to make the final roster. None of the players should be drafted in leagues but could be waiver wire options depending on how they are used on offense.
