Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Set for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett and fellow Colts QB Philip Rivers both can become unrestricted free agents this offseason, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

With Rivers healthy for the entire 2020 campaign, Brissett's main contribution to the Colts was subbing in for some short-yardage plays. He scored three short rushing TDs and attempted just eight passes, never really getting a chance to rebound from his disappointing performance over 15 starts in 2019. While he's unlikely to find a team that wants him in a starting role, Brissett should at least be recognized as one of the better backup QBs, and he might even be a fallback plan for the Colts if Rivers isn't brought back.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Gets scripted drive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett didn't complete his lone pass but gained two yards on his lone carry in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans.

The Colts seemed to give Brissett the reins for an entire drive, but he was unable to capitalize on the opportunity. Brissett should continue to spell Philip Rivers in QB sneak situations, as he's logged at least one snap in seven straight games.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Maintains short-yardage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett gained two yards on his lone rushing attempt in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Texans.

Brissett also lost a yard while taking a knee. He often takes the field in short-yardage situations, as he's far more effective at the QB sneak than Philip Rivers. Brissett currently has three rushing touchdowns on 11 carries this year.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Scores two rushing TDs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett was 0-for-2 passing and had three carries for three yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Brissett continues to be used in goal-line packages and vultured away two touchdowns from the running backs. He also played a series on offense when the game became a blowout.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Sacked on lone play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett was sacked on his only play in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Jacksonville. He went under center and ran a quarterback option play at the goal line.

Coach Frank Reich said during the preseason that Brissett could play a handful of snaps per game to take advantage of his mobility. Brissett was brought in for such a situation Sunday, but the play was read easily by the Jacksonville defense and resulted in a critical losing play. Reich may have to reconsider Brissett's usage as a result. Brissett otherwise will serve as the backup to Philip Rivers.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Could play some snaps behind Rivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Frank Reich suggested Tuesday that Brissett could play a handful of snaps per game to take advantage of his mobility, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Brissett isn't exactly fleet of foot, but he does move around much better than breathing statue Philip Rivers, potentially making the 27-year-old useful for certain option concepts. The Colts reportedly intend to keep the former as a backup to the latter, making Brissett the highest-paid No. 2 QB in the league as he enters the second season of a two-year, $30 million contract. It is possible the team alters course before Week 1, considering Brissett's release would free up nearly $9 million in cap space (per overthecap.com), and a trade could clear out even more room. Either way, Rivers is ticketed for the Week 1 start.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Expected to stay with Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts intend to keep Brissett on the roster in 2020, despite the team's recent signing of Philip Rivers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Brissett was awarded a two-year, $30 million extension last September, an indication the Colts at least viewed him as a capable bridge option following the surprise retirement of Andrew Luck. The signal-caller got off to a strong start to the 2019 campaign but saw his production tail off down the stretch, finishing with an 18:6 TD:INT, 6.6 yards per attempt and a 60.9 percent completion rate across 15 games. The Colts' decision to hand Rivers a one-year, $25 million contract in free agency signals that he's the starter entering 2020, but the organization still apparently views Brissett as a valuable insurance option for the 38-year-old. Brissett will take home $7 million guaranteed if he remains on the roster through the end of Sunday, so if no trade is executed before then, the 27-year-old should stick with Indianapolis all season.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Facing uncertainty in Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Chris Ballard said "the jury is still out" on Brissett, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. "Jacoby did some good things," Ballard said Thursday. "But our passing game has to improve. The jury is still out. That's why we did the short-term deal we did."

Ballard did add a slightly more favorable comment: "Right now, I'll say Jacoby is our starting quarterback." Of course, it could be argued that 'right now' is the crucial part of the quote, with the implication that the Colts will try to find an upgrade. Brissett led the team to a 5-2 start while averaging two touchdown passes per game, but the season began to unravel when he suffered a knee injury Week 9 in Pittsburgh. He only missed one game, but his performance over the final two months was subpar, with the 27-year-old completing 56.4 percent of passes for 6.1 yards per attempt and four touchdowns in seven games (2-5 record). Brissett is signed through 2020 on a one-year extension with a $21.5 million cap hit, including $5.5 million that has already been paid and another $7 million that's guaranteed, per overthecap.com. The Colts have more than enough cap space to bring in veteran competition, and they also have a nice haul of 2020 draft picks in the early rounds (Nos. 13, 34, 44, 75).

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Rough outing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 12 of 25 pass attempts for 162 yards while also rushing four times for 17 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Brissett's late-season slide hit rock bottom after the signal-caller fell below a 50 percent completion rate for the first time in a game this season. The 26-year-old was looking like an adequate replacement for Andrew Luck (retirement) after a strong first half of the season when he posted a 64.5 completion rate, 1,590 passing yards and a 14:3 TD:INT ratio through the first seven games of the campaign. The league must have figured him out in the second half of the campaign, however, as he struggled to the tune of a 56.9 completion percentage, 1,352 yards and a 4:3 TD:INT ratio over his final eight games. The Colts extended Brissett through the 2020 season, so he should get a chance to redeem himself if the team doesn't pursue another option this upcoming offseason.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Runs for touchdown in slow game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 14 of 27 passes for 119 yards during Sunday's 38-6 win over the Panthers. He added 37 yards and a touchdown on three carries.

Brissett was held under 200 yards passing for the fourth time in his last six games. He has thrown just four touchdowns during that span. Without much traction in the passing game, Brissett relied on his legs to make a few big plays, scoring the Colts' first touchdown on a first-quarter sneak and then converting a third down with a big 24-yard run in the second quarter to set up Indianapolis' third touchdown. The season concludes next Sunday versus a Jaguars team against which Brissett threw for 148 yards and compiled two total touchdowns (one passing, one rushing) in a Week 11 win.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Rough game versus Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 18 of 34 passes for 165 yards in Monday night's 34-7 loss to the Saints.

Brissett endured a lackluster showing, not leading the Colts to any points until their final offensive drive of the game. The signal-caller's 4.9 yards per attempt marked a season low, and Brissett has now thrown for under 175 yards in three of his last five outings. He's also managed just four passing touchdowns versus three interceptions over that span, and although top wideout T.Y. Hilton was missing most of that time, Brissett's stock has taken a hit ahead of Week 16's matchup against the Panthers.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Two TDs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 19 of 36 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns while adding 26 yards on four carries in Sunday's 38-35 loss to Tampa Bay.

Brissett was inefficient against the vulnerable Buccaneers secondary, but he found Marcus Johnson for a 46-yard touchdown just 2:15 into the game and added a 12-yard touchdown to Zach Pascal in the third quarter. He has a tidy 18:6 TD:INT this season, but that ratio is 4:3 over his past six games. The quarterback's second-half decline has coincided with his team's drop in the standings, as the Colts have lost five of their last six to fall to 6-7.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Tops 300 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 25 of his 40 pass attempts for 319 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the team's Week 13 loss to the Titans.

Brissett opened the game on a positive note, completing his first five passes, highlighted by a 21-yard touchdown toss to Jack Doyle. That efficiency continued for much of the first half, as he was 10-for-14 with 132 yards and a touchdown through two quarters. However, he threw two key interceptions in the second half, which directly led to 10 points for the Titans. Despite the mistakes, Brissett averaged 8.0 yards per attempt for the first time in his last three contests and also surpassed 300 passing yards for the first time since Week 3. He'll have another chance to lead the team to a win in Week 14 in a positive matchup against the Buccaneers.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Underwhelming in Week 12 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 16 of 25 passes for 129 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and rushed four times for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 20-17 loss to the Texans on Thursday.

Brissett's final passing line says it all as far as how lackluster the air attack was Thursday, even with the return to action of T.Y. Hilton (calf). The fourth-year quarterback's passing yardage total served as a season low for him in a non-injury-shortened game, and it was his second straight sub-200-yard effort overall while playing all four quarters. Hilton was on a snap limit of sorts Thursday -- which certainly didn't help Brissett overall -- but he also failed to connect with two of his other wideouts, Marcus Johnson and Zach Pascal. Brissett did manage his third rushing touchdown of the campaign with a five-yard score in the latter portion of the second quarter, but he'll look to significantly boost his passing production at the expense of the Titans in Week 13.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Tallies rushing score in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett completed 15 of 24 pass attempts for 148 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the team's Week 11 win over the Jaguars. He also added two rushes for 12 yards and a touchdown.

Brissett didn't put up a massive statistical performance, but he capped two key drives in the third quarter by finding the end zone. The first came on the team's initial drive of the second half, when he completed a one-yard pass to Marcus Johnson. On the second drive, he found the end zone on his own with a five-yard rush. Brissett didn't showcase his typical efficiency after missing last week's contest against the Dolphins -- he averaged only 6.2 yards per attempt -- though he should be in for a better matchup in Week 12 against the Texans on Thursday.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Will start against Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Frank Reich confirmed Brissett (knee) will start Sunday against Jacksonville, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

Reich noted that Brissett made it through practice this week without any major issues, enabling the signal-caller to return after a one-game absence due to sprained MCL in his left knee. While Brissett will return under center, he'll be without top target T.Y. Hilton (calf), who has been ruled out another game.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Trending toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett (knee) will be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Coach Frank Reich verified Wednesday that he expects Brissett to draw the start during Sunday's game against the Jaguars, barring any setbacks. With No. 2 quarterback Brian Hoyer coming off a three-interception performance in the Week 10 loss to the Dolphins, Brissett's return to the starting lineup would offer Indianapolis' offense a well-timed chance to get back on track.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Status could become clear Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett (knee) could have his availability for Week 11 determined by Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. "If he's practicing on Wednesday and taking a full practice, you know, at that point we'll say we're ready to go," coach Frank Reich said Monday.

Despite practicing in a limited capacity last week, Brissett was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a left MCL sprain suffered one week prior. As intimated by Reich, Brissett's upcoming availability likely depends on his activity level at Wednesday's practice. Consequently, how he's listed on the ensuing injury report could offer a hint at Reich's eventual decision. If Brissett begins to trend toward another absence, veteran Brian Hoyer is available for another start.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Out against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Brian Hoyer will start at QB in Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET contest. Chad Kelly was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Game-time call for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Brissett was limited in practice all three days this week, which is encouraging, but George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin relays that coach Frank Reich acknowledged Friday with regard to the QB's Week 10 status that "we've got to make the right decision, for him and the team." If the Colts choose to play it safe with Brissett this weekend, Brian Hoyer would be in line to start at QB in Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET contest.
