T.Y. Hilton – WR Colts:
Six catches for 102 yards and a touchdown is a good day but having 11 targets is an even better day. The Colts are playing with a heavy heart and now that Andrew Luck is figuring out the NFL their offense is starting to pick up. Hilton adds another Colt receiver with fantasy value and no defense is in his way the next few weeks. At Jaguars next week.
Isaac Redman – RB Steelers:
The Chiefs are next on the Steelers docket and they have been giving up 142 yards per game to running backs. Redman is part of huge running back carousel in Pittsburgh but he is taking advantage of his chances having 147 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries last week. Pay attention to the injury updates this week and he may be a smooth plug in if the cards fall into the right place. Kansas City at home this week.
Marcel Reece – RB Raiders:
Not shocked McFadden got hurt, I am only shocked that it took this long. The Raiders run him into the ground each week and it has finally taken a toll on his person. He is possibly out, along with Mike Goodson, so he is bound to be catching the rock out of the backfield this week. At Baltimore this week.
Brandon Myers – TE Raiders:
With eight catches for 59 yards and his first two touchdowns of his career Myers has moved his way into the waiver wire section. He had 13 targets on Sunday and for some reason he has been ignored in the fantasy world – Until now. People are going to snatch him up now that he has gotten in the end zone. At Baltimore this week.
Joique Bell – RB Lions:
Bell had 73 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown to go with three catches for 36 yards. He finished above Mikel Leshoure in yards but less in touchdowns. He is behind Leshoure but his production is continuing to pick up with averaging 11 yards per catch. At Minnesota this week.
Last Week Results:
Miami Defense – Shredded by Andrew Luck.
Cecil Shorts – Three catches for 56 yards.
Jonathan Dwyer – Inactive.
Daniel Thomas – Six carries for 37 yards and two catches for 25 yards.
Joel Dreessen – Four catches for 38 yards and a touchdown.
BEST OF MAXIM
Finally. It's been difficult to judge how far the Colts have come this year, and at last we were able to see Indy win big. Remember when they lost to Jacksonville at home? Remember Cecil Shorts? Hard to forget; apparently, he's the best wideout in the league (just ask the Colts's secondary!). Mark Long recaps the game with some great quotes by Andrew Luck.
Two weeks after having surgery on his right knee to repair a ruptured patellar tendon, Indianapolis Colts’ wide receiver Austin Collie had his doctor astonished with how fast he was recovering. Two more weeks later, Collie’s father Scott was on his way to Los Angelesto meet with Austin and the doctor for a follow up appointment. During the six hour drive from the Collie home...

Cory Redding isn’t new to Chuck Pagano, he played for him in Baltimore. So, he knows first hand who Pagano is, and what he means to the Indianapolis Colts. Pagano is under going cancer treatment, but his spirit has shown the fight in him, and now the Colts are showing the same fire. At 5-3, the Colts are the surprise team of 2012, and according to Redding, Pagano is the reason...

One day after beating Jacksonville 27-10 to improve to 6-3, Arians talked about everything from two personal foul calls on the Jaguars for hitting Luck in the head or near...
Things have changed quickly over the past week. I have just two new entries into the Playoff Picture for Week 10 and it is due largely to the fact that the Dolphins and Eagles failed to take advantage of the promising situations in front of them. With the Eagles, it was more about the team that failed to take advantage of an opportunity. For the Dolphins, it's about having that...
Coming off of their 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Indianapolis Colts (5-3) head to Florida for their first - and likely last - prime time game of the season as they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football.

A lot has changed for the Indianapolis Colts since a 22-17 home-field loss to Jacksonville on Sept. 23. That's the only game the Jaguars have won this season and they are 1-7 on the year. Indianapolis, meanwhile, has posted wins in four of its last five games and is rolling along with a 5-3 record. Many Colts point to that loss to Jacksonville in the third week of the season...

Andrew Luck may not be Robert Griffin III when it comes to running the football, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting out of the pocket like his Washington counterpart.
Luck scored two rushing touchdowns on Thursday night against the Jaguars. But on one particular scramble in the fourth quarter, the Colts quarterback took a major hit hit from Jacksonville safety Dawan Landry...
The Jaguars secondary should be scared of the young gun
Indianapolis Colts (5-3) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (1-7) 8:20 p.m.
Not many people would have thought the Colts would be playoff contenders after saying goodbye to Peyton Manning and welcoming rookie Andrew Luck to be the franchise quarterback. But that is right where the Colts are right now, fighting for a playoff spot...
At the outset of the Thursday night live blog, commenter War Machine said, “Every off-season, I promise myself that I’ll watch football when I can, given that the time between seasons feels like an almost insurmountable expanse. This is one of the games that tests the tenacity of that vow.”
Well put. Though if we’re already channeling that sense of dedication, it worries...
The Jaguars take on the Indianapolis Colts tonight in a game that seemingly only matters to the Colts. At 5-3, Indianapolis is in the thick of the AFC wildcard race, and they're Jacksonville's most hated team. The Jaguars would need to win out and get plenty of help to make the playoffs. At 1-7, it's just not going to happen. Tonight's game is all about doing damage...
