Austin Collie is doubtful. We break down the fantasy implications.

Austin Collie (concussion) practiced on Wednesday then was held out for the rest of the week and is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Vikings.

Analysis: What a mess. Collie had news about him that said he expects to play, then moments later he got the doubtful tag. He really has a big upside with the Colts extremely thin at receiver, their vulnerable defense and his ability to run every route in the book. Collie should remain owned in most competitive leagues, but there's obviously no way owners can start him against the soft Vikings pass D.
