I was reading about substitutions that random fantasy owners made this week, and I found a number of alarming moves. Here are some examples that I saw:- Many people started Vick Ballard this week with Donald Brown out. Players riding the pine so Ballard could get a spot in various starting lineups: Ahmad Bradshaw, C.J. Spiller, Mikel Leshoure, Fred Jackson, Steven Jackson.- Julio Jones and Percy Harvin over A.J. Green and Victor Cruz- Wes Welker for Miles Austin- Andre Roberts over Ahmad Bradshaw and Demarco MurrayAll of these examples show how some fantasy owners overreact. Now one of these is debatable (I’ve heard that Jones and Harvin are pretty good), but it still counts as an alarming move. In general, the proven players were benched for enticing players who may have had some decent games so far this year. Some fantasy owners may have been concerned about matchups (Green going up against Joe Haden, Bradshaw going against the 49ers defense), but putting in Ballard over those oth...

This Sunday Colts fans got their long-awaited look at Vick Ballard who started in place of the injured Donald Brown. Fans have routinely panned Donald Brown and Joe Addai before him for their lack of productivity. Ballard's approach is very powerful in contrast to the slashing style favored by both Brown and Addai. Naturally fans assumed this would lead to a better run game between...
Well, it's a bit of a slow day so far for finding good, current stories on the Colts. Nonetheless, here's what I have so far:
Phil Richards of The Indianapolis Star says Allen and Fleener have been bright spots in the Colts' gloom. The two haven't been super productive, but remember that they're rookie tight ends. For rookies at that position, they'...
The Colts-Jets game was frustrating to watch, but we're going through with some links anyway.
Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan broke the game down in his Hot Reads column, and in his earlier quick recap and box score.
It was eerily similar to the season-opening 41-21 loss in Chicago, as the Colts were plagued by shaky play from rookie quarterback Andrew Luck (two interceptions...
The Indianapolis Colts needed to cut someone so they could sign tight end Weslye Saunders. Chandler Harnish was the victim. Harnish was drafted by the Colts with the final pick of the 2012 draft.The final pick of the draft gets dubbed the name Mr. Irrelevant and Harnish would certainly be considered that when you factor in the Colts also made the first pick of the draft, Andrew Luck...
Well that was fun, wasn't it?
A day after the Colts worst loss of the season, it's still hard to find many positives to take from their 35-9 thrashing courtesy of the New York Jets. Not only was yesterday's loss the result of a complete team effort: poor coaching, poor play by the offense and poor play by the defense, but the Colts also walked away from the game...
Michael Marot of the Associated Press talks about the Colts' need to fix some of their more glaring problems on defense:
But the most glaring problem so far, has been the leaky run defense that has been exposed by the Jaguars and Jets and is likely to be exploited by Cleveland (1-5) again this week, if the Colts can't revise the script.
"We missed a lot of tackles...
This week the Indianapolis Colts utilized Vick Ballard quite a bit in their game versus the Jets. Vick Ballard rushed eight times for 25 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in the Colts’ Week 6 loss to the Jets. Ballard never really had a chance because the Colts completely bailed on the run after falling behind 14-3 early in the second quarter. From there, they used a ton...

Dear Indy Star,
Pardon my French, but this really pisses me off. Road Wimps? Really? I know you were just in New York, but let me fill you in on something…you’re back in Indiana. Where Hoosier Hospitality is a thing. And not just a thing…a real thing.
I’m not one of those fans who thinks you can only say or write positive things...
Vick Ballard, RB, Colts – The rookie saw the bulk of the carries for the Colts, going for 25 yards on 8 carries on Sunday. He didn’t get too many carries because the team fell behind to the Jets, but he should be good for more work at home against the Browns in Week 7. He’s still available in many leagues.
Alex Green, RB, Packers – The second-year back from Hawaii is the...
I am back again within the walls of my mythical fantasy football stock exchange, watching the buzz for hot players and the desperate unloading of injured and poor performing players.
