Grant snagged just 34 of 52 targets for 334 yards and one touchdown in 14 games while playing on a one-year deal with the Colts in 2018. He won't have the opportunity to compete for a No. 2 role in Oakland like he did in Indianapolis, but it's not out of the question for the 6-foot-4 Grant to improve on his lowly efficiency metrics (6.4 YPT) if he can secure a regular spot in three-wideout formations with the Raiders. While it isn't clear where Grant stands in his recovery from the lingering toe injury that cost him the final two games of last season, there should be more clarity on that front once the team's offseason workouts commence April 15.
Grant, who missed last Saturday's wild-card contest, didn't have a significant target share down the stretch during the regular season, so his absence is more of a hit to the Colts' depth at wideout than it is to fantasy players. T.Y. Hilton (ankle), Dontrelle Inman (shoulder/finger) and Chester Rogers are in line lead team's receiving corps this weekend.
Grant sat out last weekend's wild-card win over the Texans and continues to nurse the lingering toe injury. The depth wideout will have another opportunity to prove his health in practice Thursday, but at this point he appears to be trending towards missing Saturday's divisional-round tilt against the Chiefs. If Grant is unable to go, Zach Pascal and Daurice Fountain could benefit from slightly increased snaps.
Grant (toe) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report.
The Colts merely held a walk-through Tuesday, but Grant was tabbed with DNPs all of last week before being ruled out for the Colts' eventual wild-card win at Houston. He'll have actual practices Wednesday and Thursday to turn the tide regarding his health, or risk sitting out a second consecutive contest.
Grant (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's playoff game against the Texans, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Grant's target share of late hasn't been significant, so this news doesn't have much fantasy impact. In his absence this weekend, T.Y. Hilton (ankle), Dontrelle Inman (shoulder/finger), Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal (knee) are in line to head the Colts' wideout corps.
