The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly planning on signing quarterback Josh Johnson in the wake of Andrew Luck heading to injured reserve, per Ian Rapoport. Johnson will act as extra insurance behind Jacoby Brissett and Scott Tolzien, meaning there are no real fantasy implications in the signing. Johnson was cut by the New York Giants in training camp this last summer.
The Indianapolis Colts worked out free-agent quarterbacks Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, Josh Johnson and Connor Shaw on Tuesday, according to sources. With Andrew Luck (shoulder) not a lock to play in 2017, Jacoby Brissett will remain the starter for the foreseeable future, with Scott Tolzien backing him up. This suggests Indianapolis isn't sold on Tolzien for depth purposes.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton failed to follow up a lights-out Week 3 performance when the team faced the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, catching three passes for 30 yards in a 46-18 loss. Hilton and fellow wide receiver Donte Moncrief had identical stat lines, but Moncrief was the beneficiary of the team's lone receiving touchdown. What this game should make clear for fantasy owners is the low ceiling Hilton has in bad matchups, though his role in the offense should allow him to perform well in favorable ones. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett is a notable upgrade for all Colts wide receivers compared to Scott Tolzien.
