Nerdy Football Analysis: This was the assumption all along but now it’s official. Luck was removed from the PUP list but is still not ready to play and has an uncertain timetable. Tolzien is a poor Week 1 option against the Rams and gives a slight downgrade to T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and TE Jack Doyle.

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Colts are characterizing the injury as minor. Moncrief is likely to miss a couple practices but there’s reason for fantasy owners to panic at this time.

No. 3 WR job in Indy “up for grabs”

Anyone who thought Phillip Dorsett and Kamar Aiken would definitely be the third or fourth wideouts for the Colts in 2017 needs to re-think their depth chart. Second-year wide receiver Chester Rogers is a serious contender for wide receiver reps this coming season and has a real shot at the up for grabs playing time behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

Nerdy Football Analysis: New GM Chris Ballard, OC Rob Chudzinski and Andrew Luck are all singing the praises of the former undrafted free agent. The new front office in Indy has no ties to Dorsett, so he is in real danger of ending up fifth on the depth chart. Aiken would seem to be the leader in the clubhouse for No. 3 duties, but Rogers appears primed to give him a run for his money. The winner of this competition should possess upside to be at least a WR5 in most leagues.
