It looks like Donte Moncrief will remain the Colts No. 2 receiver after catching 61 percent of his targets and posting six touchdowns for over 700 yards in his second season. Most of his good work came with Andrew Luck under center (five games with nine-plus Fantasy points). But be forewarned -- Luck has never produced multiple 1,000-yard or multiple six-touchdown receivers in the same season. If T.Y. Hilton is going to be Luck's huckleberry then Moncrief can't be expected to register big numbers, even if the Colts' thinned-out receiving corps leads to a slight increase in targets. Bank on Moncrief providing depth on your Fantasy roster, not as a wideout for your starting lineup. He's a target starting around 100th overall in a non-PPR league and 90th overall in PPR formats.
Moncrief (toe) has started running routes, according to his Twitter account. Moncrief aggravated a toe injury late last season and ended up having surgery on it earlier this offseason. He's missed Indy's offseason practices, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Moncrief (toe) has yet to participate in OTAs, but is no longer wearing a boot on his left foot, George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin reports. Moncrief aggravated a toe injury late last season and ended up having surgery on it earlier this offseason. While he has yet to return to the practice field, the shedding of his boot is a step in the right direction for an eventual return to the field. Moncrief is still expected to be ready to go for training camp, so he shouldn't end up missing too many valuable reps.
Moncrief did not participate in Tuesday's OTAs as he was wearing a boot on his left foot after undergoing toe surgery in the offseason, according to Indianapolis WTTV. Moncrief played with a toe injury the final month of the season and aggravated it in the last game. His return from the injury will be something to monitor this summer.
Moncrief (toe) left Sunday's game against the Titans after aggravating his injury. Despite logging minimal practice time over the final few weeks of the season, Moncrief played all 16 games for the second time in his two NFL seasons. The Colts have no shortage of questions to answer this offseason, but there's little doubt that Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton are core pieces for the future. Moncrief won't turn 23 until August.
Moncrief (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Moncrief will continue to play through his toe issue this weekend despite not practicing this week, but his Week 17 fantasy upside is impacted by the fact that the Colts are without both Andrew Luck and Matt Hasselbeck, which sets the stage for recently-signed Josh Freeman to draw the start at QB for the team on Sunday.
