Austin Collie Not Ready To Play Yet: Fantasy Implications

Austin Collie's status for Week 2 remains in question. We break down the fantasy implications.

Head coach Chuck Pagano said Austin Collie "just wasn't ready" to play in Week 1 of the regular season. After Pagano made it seem like Collie would definitely play in the Colts opener, it appears unclear how much of a bearing he has on the situation.

Fantasy Impact: It's tough to tell what this situation really means. Pagano may have just been misleading everyone to throw off the Bears in their preparation, but it also could show fantasy owners that they shouldn't trust the head coach's advice on who to start in your lineup. Collie remains questionable for Indianapolis' Week 2 matchup against the Vikings. Be sure to continue checking on his status throughout the week. Don't believe the first report you hear, though, out of the Colts camp.
