Colts WR Austin Collie is already recovering from his concussion, and his status for Sunday’s game against the Bengals is still in question. But what is not in question is that you need to make sure that you have WR Blair White, and pretty much every Colts player, on your fantasy roster.
Maybe even RB Javarris James, too.
White’s name seemingly comes up every other week as another one of the Colts receivers gets injured. Even when Collie returns, it is only a matter of time before WRs Reggie Wayne or Pierre Garcon go down. At least that seems to be the trend for Colts players this season. So, just keep White to be safe.
We are starting to come to the time of the season when handcuffs are really important. If you have extra space on your roster, add some handcuffs. For instance, if you have any of the remaining Colts receivers, pick up White (though he likely figures into the game plan this week).
Normally, it’s a good idea to keep a bunch of bye week replacements and that extra defense on your roster, just in case. But no need for that anymore. And really, if you are still clinging to the hope that, say, Texans WR Jacoby Jones is going to be a sleeper this season, let that dream die.
Make a move to ensure that your starters are handcuffed. Your roster should be pretty much set, so just make sure your studs are insured.
