Delone Carter Fantasy: Colts RB Picks Up 46 Yards

You probably aren't expecting much out of Delone Carter, and as long as your expectations are in order, you can't be too disappointed with his performance on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The Indianapolis Colts running back rushed for 46 yards on nine carries. Clearly, those aren't huge numbers, but they are in line with what he's been doing this year.

Carter had 259 rushing yards and 12 receiving yards on the season with 2 touchdowns on the ground and zero in the air. Carter was averaging 37 yards rushing and 1 yard receiving per game. Carter is pushing for playing time over Joseph Addai in his rookie season.

Carter was ranked as the 26th ranked running back according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Tennessee Titans.

Reggie Wayne Fantasy: Colts WR Makes 5 Catches For 61 Yards

When you're quarterback is Curtis Painter, there's just so much you can expect from your wide receivers. Once again, Reggie Wayne had a solid, but underwhelming fantasy performance. Against the Tennessee Titans, Wayne had five catches for 61 yards without a touchdown. 

The longest play for the Indianapolis Colts wide receiver was a 23-yard catch. But other than that it was a pretty quiet afternoon for a player of whom much was expected this year.

Wayne had 426 receiving yards on the season with 1 touchdown in the air. Wayne was averaging 61 receiving per game. Wayne rushing yards was down nearly 25 yards per game from last season.

Wayne was ranked as the 29th ranked wide receiver according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Tennessee Titans.

Curtis Painter Fantasy: Are You Really Using The Colts QB, Still?

Curtis Painter really shouldn't be anyone's idea of a fantasy starting quarterback. Heck, he's barely an NFL starting quarterback and they need 32 of them. Once again, he showed that he's a perfectly forgettable fantasy performing, turning in 250 yards on 26 of 49 passing. Not horrible numbers, granted, but toss in his two interceptions and that's not the kind of thing you're going to get many points from.

Despite the Indianapolis Colts' horrid, winless start to the season, backup quarterback Painter has not been a colossal failure. His chemistry with Pierre Garcon has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners, and if you're starting quarterback is in a bye week, Painter's not a terrible play.

After feasting on weaker defenses like the Bucaneers and Chiefs, Painter has a touchdown and two picks in his last two games. This week he's facing the Titans' 15th-ranked pass defense, so don't expect big things.

Chris Johnson Fantasy: Titans RB Has Another Frustrating Game

Chris Johnson had another frustrating afternoon on Sunday even though the Tennessee Titans beat the Indianapolis Colts. Not only did he register just 34 rushing yards, but he split carries with Javon Ringer. By the end of the game, it looked like Ringer was the primary ball carrier, with Johnson only coming in when Ringer needed a break.

Johnson had 268 rushing yards and 143 receiving yards on the season with 1 touchdown on the ground and zero in the air. Johnson was averaging 45 yards rushing and 24 yards receiving per game. Johnson's rushing yards were up nearly 5 yards per game from last season.

Johnson was ranked as the 10th ranked running back according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Indianapolis Colts.

Colts Vs. Titans: Chris Johnson Losing Carries To Javon Ringer

By all appearances, Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is healthy. Yet, in Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, he has received just eight carries and picked up 14 yards. Meanwhile, third-year running back Javon Ringer has gotten five carries for 16 yards. Ringer also has four catches for 27 yards.

It would seem more than a little counter-intuitive for Ringer to supplant Johnson as the primary ball carrier for the Titans, but that could be what we're seeing. Johnson has rushed for more than 4,500 yards over the past three seasons, but had just 268 yards heading into Sunday's game. Even more concerning is the fact that he's averaging just 2.9 yards per carry and scored only one touchdown.

Johnson, who had 503 receiving yards two years ago when he also rushed for more than 2,000 yards, has just 143 receiving yards this year. 

The good news for Johnson owners is that Ringer isn't exactly tearing it up either. Ringer had just 62 yards on 20 carries heading into this game.

Matt Hasselbeck Fantasy: Titans QB Off To Solid Start

Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has gotten off to a solid start against the Colts. Hasselbeck has thrown for 151 yards on 15 of 21 passing. He has yet to throw a touchdown, though, and with the Titans leading 20-0 at the half, there appears to be little hope that he can really beef up his fantasy numbers.

Hasselbeck had an abysmal performance in Week 7 against the Texans, and tried to rebound against the Indianapolis Colts defense that allowed Drew Brees and the Saints to rack up 62 points. Hasselbeck has struggled to find any consistency this year, especially without Kenny Britt, and his two top targets, Nate Washington and Jared Cook, have been inconsistent at best.

Anthony Gonzalez Status Update: Colts WR Inactive Yet Again

UPDATE: Gonzalez is listed as inactive for the Colts Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. He has zero catches this season, so his scratch should come as no surprise.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez has dealt with injuries in the past, but has been a healthy scratch for a few games this season. When Gonzalez played, it's been mostly on special teams and not in the regular offense. He has yet to catch a pass this season in the three games he's been active and has only been targeted one time.

Gonzalez hasn't been productive at all since 2008, when he was last healthy. With Curtis Painter running the Colts offense, even if Gonzalez was playing and getting reps at receiver, it's not likely he'd be very productive anyway. The reasons for Gonzalez lack of playing time isn't really known, but it seems he's gotten in someone's dog house.

Jacob Tamme Status Update: Colts TE Passes Concussion Tests, Will Play

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jacob Tamme has been dealing with a concussion that he suffered in last weeks blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints. Tamme hasn't been a big factor in the Colts passing attack, which has been non-existent at times. With Dallas Clark healthy, Tamme's role in the offense has decreased. He has only a single catch this season for 1 yard.

Tamme has been good to go in practice, passing his concussion baseline tests. He should be ready to play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, but don't expect much from him out of the passing game. Since Clark is healthy, Tamme's role is primarily on special teams once again. Unless Clark goes down, don't expect him to see many targets.

Matt Hasselbeck Expected To Start Vs. Colts

Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was a full participant in the final two practices of the week and is expected to start on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Hasselbeck injured the thumb on his throwing hand during last week's 41-7 loss to the Houston Texans and was limited during Wednesday's practice, wearing a glove to protect the injured digit. Hasselbeck ditched the glove and Thursday and downplayed his injury.

"They kind of gave me the day off (Wednesday) just so I wouldn’t take a bunch of snaps and pound it, but I didn’t want them to give me the day off," Hasselbeck said via Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "But when you are as old as I am, 36, they give you a day off when you sneeze too much."

After a hot start to his stint with the Titans, Hasselbeck has cooled off the last two weeks, completing just 54.4 percent of his last 79 pass attempts for 366 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions as the Titans have lost back-to-back games to even their record at 3-3 heading into Sunday's game against the Colts, who have the NFL's 23rd-ranked pass defense.

Joseph Addai Status Update

Running back Joseph Addai sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but returned to the field on Friday and is one of 14 Indianapolis Colts players who are listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

After missing the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals with a hamstring injury, Addai suffered a new hamstring injury during the team's 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night. If Addai is unable to play, 2011 fourth-round pick Delone Carter and 2009 first-round pick Donald Brown would share the rushing duties on Sunday.

Carter leads the Colts with 259 yards and two touchdowns on the ground this season, while Brown, once considered a bust, is averaging 5.5 yards on his 22 rushing attempts, all of which have come over the last three games. The Titans defense ranks 24th against the run this season, allowing an average of 124.5 yards per game.
