This Thursday night the Indianapolis Colts meet the Jacksonville Jaguars.Will there be any good fantasy football options? Last week the Thursday night game seemed a banquet of (unreliable) fantasy options. Yes, there were choices everywhere. But the question was who could you trust? The answer of course ended up being practically no one, my apologies to Philip Rivers. This week the options are less of a banquet and more of an appetizer sampler. But with Aaron Rodgers and his arsenal on break, Robert Griffin III healing, Larry Fitzgerald trying to figure out how to get on Peyton Manning's team, and Trent Richardson giving his body a break, options are limited.

Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill put on a memorable show for Chuck Pagano on Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS - It looks like Andrew Luck needed only half a season to establish himself as a worthy successor to Peyton Manning. Luck completed 30 of 48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The 433 yards set an NFL rookie record. Cam Newton had set the record with 432 yards last season. "...
