Player Outlook
Minshew signed with the Colts this offseason, and he will be No. 2 on the depth chart after rookie Anthony Richardson was named starter. He's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. In 2022 with the Eagles, Minshew started two games for an injured Jalen Hurts, and Minshew averaged 20.0 Fantasy points per game against the Cowboys and Saints. He has potential to be a low-end starter in all leagues if he starts any games, but you shouldn't anticipate that on Draft Day given the Colts' commitment to Richardson. In deep Superflex and two-quarterback leagues you can take a flier on Minshew, but he's not worth drafting in any one-quarterback formats.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Quiet line in defeat

    Minshew completed 13 of 24 pass attempts for 141 yards and added one carry for nine yards in Saturday's 23-19 loss to the Texans. It was the third start this season in which Minshew did not tally a touchdown, resulting in a mediocre fantasy performance to close out the regular season. The Colts' charismatic quarterback did a good job of protecting the football Saturday, which afforded Jonathan Taylor (ankle) the opportunity to post a monstrous rushing line (30/188/1) despite the losing effort. Minshew accrued 3,305 passing yards with 15 touchdowns and 14 turnovers while appearing in 17 games (13 starts) replacing injured rookie starter Anthony Richardson (shoulder). The latter underwent successful shoulder surgery and is lined up to start for the Colts in 2024, leaving Minshew -- an unrestricted free agent -- a likely target for teams in need of a veteran signal-caller this upcoming offseason.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    Minshew scored 13.1 Fantasy points in relief of Anthony Richardson in Week 2 at Houston, and he should have the chance for a quality outing this week against the Texans in a huge game for both teams. Now, Minshew only has one game with more than 16.1 Fantasy points in his past four outings, but the Texans have allowed the past two non-Tennessee quarterbacks that they've faced (Zach Wilson in Week 14 and Joe Flacco in Week 16) to each score at least 23.2 Fantasy points. Minshew is a good option in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Quiet in win over Vegas

    Minshew completed 15 of 23 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Raiders. He added three rushing yards on two carries. Minshew and the Colts leaned on their running game after taking a 14-3 lead into halftime, limiting the quarterback's production, but he did help pad that lead with a 58-yard TD strike to Alec Pierce late in the second quarter. Indianapolis remains in a three-way tie atop the AFC South with Jacksonville and Houston, and as a result Minshew could be asked to do a lot more in Week 18's tilt against the Texans with a potential division title on the line.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Week 16 Waiver Priority List

    Minshew has scored at least 22.7 Fantasy points in two of his past three games, and hopefully Michael Pittman (concussion) can return in Week 16 after he was knocked out in Week 15 against Pittsburgh. The Falcons have allowed four of their past seven quarterbacks to score at least 23.4 Fantasy points, and Minshew should be considered a good streaming option in deeper leagues, especially if Pittman is healthy.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Tosses three TDs in Week 15

    Minshew completed 18 of 28 passes for 215 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions and also had two carries for no yards during Saturday's 30-13 win against the Steelers. Despite losing his top two available skill-position players in wide receiver Michael Pittman (concussion) and running back Zack Moss (arm) in the first half, Minshew tossed a trio of scores, marking the fifth time he's done so in his 46 career appearances. Minshew connected with eight different players, but only three of his 18 completions went for 20-plus yards, dampening his yards per attempt to 7.7. While there's a chance RB Jonathan Taylor (thumb) returns to action Week 16, Minshew again may be working with a compromised skill group Sunday, Dec. 24 in Atlanta considering the two injuries that befell the Colts on Saturday.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Matthew Stafford is available in 19% of leagues, he's a must-add, must-start QB this week. Jake Browning is available in 32% of leagues. I would start him over both Trevor Lawrence and Kyler Murray. But strictly based on our rule of guys below 65% roster rate, Gardner Minshew remains the best streaming option available.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Solid numbers in Week 14 loss

    Minshew completed 26 of 39 passes for 240 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Colts' 34-14 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. He also rushed twice for five yards and threw a two-point conversion pass. Minshew put together his usual reasonably solid numbers, finishing with his third straight productive effort through the air. Minshew connected with Mo Alie-Cox for his only touchdown pass, a two-yard toss late in the first half. The veteran signal-caller completed passes with eight different targets overall, and he'll aim to continue his current stretch of strong play against the Steelers in a Week 15 home matchup on Saturday afternoon.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Sleeper QBs

    I liked Minshew going into last week's game at Tennessee, and he delivered a standout performance with 22.7 Fantasy points, which was his best game since Week 7. Now, let's see if he can string together back-to-back quality Fantasy outings for the first time all season. It helps that he's facing a Bengals defense that has allowed five of the past six opposing quarterbacks to score at least 20.3 Fantasy points, and this is a big game for the Colts, who are in the mix for a playoff spot in the AFC. Minshew should be considered a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in Week 14.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Minshew finally delivered last week with 312 yards and two touchdowns against the Titans. Now he faces a Bengals defense that has allowed four of the last five QBs they've faced to score at least 20 Fantasy points. I would expect Minshew to be right in that range this week.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Week 14 Waiver Priority List

    I thought Minshew would play well against the Titans, and he scored 22.7 Fantasy points, which was his best performance since Week 7. He has the chance for another quality outing in Week 14 at the Bengals, who have now allowed five of the past six opposing quarterbacks to score at least 20.3 Fantasy points. Minshew is worth adding in one-quarterback leagues for up to 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Two touchdowns, 312 yards in win

    Minshew completed 26 of 42 passes for 312 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Titans. Minshew lost a fumble near the Tennessee goal line late in the second quarter, but he played a clean game otherwise. He delivered long completions of 55, 46 and 36 yards -- the final of which was a touchdown to Alec Pierce -- to top 300 passing yards for the third time on the campaign. Minshew also connected with Michael Pittman on a four-yard score to clinch the overtime victory, marking the first time that he managed multiple passing touchdowns since Week 8.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Week 13 Waiver Priority List

    Minshew was underwhelming in Week 12 against Tampa Bay with just 14.6 Fantasy points, and he's now gone four games in a row with fewer than 19 Fantasy points. He also failed to throw a touchdown for the second game in a row. But I'm willing to trust him as a low-end starter in Week 13 at Tennessee. The Titans allow an average of 18.1 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, and if Minshew hits that number that might make him a top 10 Fantasy quarterback this week given all the players on bye. Also, two of the past three quarterbacks against Tennessee (Baker Mayfield and Trevor Lawrence) have scored at least 22.2 Fantasy points, with only the struggling Bryce Young under that total in Week 12. I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of Minshew's best games of the season, and he's worth adding for up to 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Solid numbers in Week 12 win

    Minshew completed 24 of 41 passes for 251 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Colts' 27-20 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed three times for six yards and a score and fumbled once but recovered. Minshew wasn't able to get his team in the end zone through the air, but he put together a solid yardage total against a short-handed Buccaneers defense and also contributed a two-yard scoring rush early in the second quarter. Minshew unsurprisingly focused the most on Michael Pittman, who was on the receiving end of 10 of his completions, and standout rookie Josh Downs, who posted a 5-43 line. Minshew's yardage total was his highest since Week 7, and he'll now turn his focus to a Week 13 divisional road clash against the Titans.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Sleeper QBs

    Minshew has the chance for a big game against the Buccaneers, who have allowed three of the past four opposing quarterbacks to score at least 32.7 Fantasy points. For the season, Tampa Bay allows 22.4 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, and hopefully Minshew will take advantage of this matchup. He's due for a quality outing after scoring 18.8 Fantasy points or less in three games in a row, but I'm hopeful the Colts will be ready to go coming off their bye, especially with a healthy Josh Downs. Minshew is my favorite streaming quarterback for Week 12.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Tampa Bay has allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points to QBs this season, but even that doesn't tell the full picture. Three of the last four quarterbacks who have faced the Buccaneers have scored at least 32 Fantasy points. Minshew and the Colts offense should be sharp coming off the bye.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Underwhelming in win

    Minshew completed 18 of 28 passes for 194 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 10-6 win over New England. The Colts were able to rely heavily on Jonathan Taylor to escape with the win, as he carried the ball 23 times compared to Minshew's 28 pass attempts. Despite the limited volume, Minshew made plays when needed, including a 28-yard completion to Josh Downs to help clinch the victory. While he's helped the Colts to wins, Minshew now has one or fewer touchdowns in four of the six games he's started.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: QBs to Start

    My only real concern with Minshew this week is that the Colts could dominate the Panthers defense with Jonathan Taylor and Zack Moss running the ball, and Minshew doesn't have to do much. But he's averaging 19.2 Fantasy points per game in his four starts, and I think he can stay in that range this week. He scored at least 18.8 Fantasy points in each of his past two games against Cleveland and New Orleans, and those are brutal matchups. While Carolina limited C.J. Stroud to 12.9 Fantasy points in Week 8, the two previous quarterbacks in Jared Goff and Tua Tagovailoa scored at least 26.1 Fantasy points. I like Minshew as a low-end No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Minshew has historically lived in the 18-to-22 Fantasy point range when he's been a starter. This year he's averaging 19.2 FPPG in his four starts. The Panthers defense is nothing to fear, but I do worry that the Colts have so much success running on Carolina that Minshew doesn't have to do much. They are at New England and then on a bye the following week, so this is a one-week add.

  • Colts' Gardner Minshew: Mediocre numbers in loss

    Minshew completed 23 of 41 passes for 213 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Colts' 38-27 loss to the Saints on Sunday. He also rushed once for three yards. Minshew put together an inefficient day overall that highlighted some of his shortcomings as a passer. Minshew did keep the Colts in the game for the majority of the afternoon and connected with Michael Pittman and Drew Ogletree for scoring passes of 10 and 33 yards, respectively, for the quarterback's second straight multi-touchdown effort, but he also threw an interception for the third consecutive contest. Minshew's first opportunity to bounce back comes in a Week 9 road battle against the Panthers.
