Donnie Avery is listed as questionable for Thursday's game between the Colts and the Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Donnie Avery is listed as questionable for Thursday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the Colts' official site. Avery suffered a hip injury during the second half of Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins after catching five passes for 108 yards.

Avery was able to practice fully on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, which could mean good things for his status against the Jags. On the year, he has 34 receptions for 454 yards and a touchdown in eight games played.

Fantasy Impact: Avery's fantasy status looks good considering he was able to practice this week. Luckily for fantasy owners, he will play before anyone else in the league. If you rely on Avery in your league, you can adjust your lineup accordingly once the inactive list is released prior to Thursday's game.

Avery has been a decent deep-league PPR option this season, though outside of a pair of 100-yard outings, he rarely tuns in outstanding outings. As a bye week stop-gap, he is worth starting consideration. Otherwise, you should hopefully have better weekly options at your disposal.
