TE - IND - Questionable
Week 8 Outlook
Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 8 game against the Lions.
Alie-Cox didn't play in the Colts' Week 6 game and then had the bye week to rest up. He returned to practice on Thursday so seemingly has a good chance to play against Detroit. Alie-Cox won't be fantasy relevant even if he suits up.
Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.
Alie-Cox missed the Colts' Week 6 game and then had their Week 7 bye to rest up. He's trending towards returning this Sunday against the Lions, but he isn't very fantasy relevant as a part-time player right now.
Mo Alie-Cox has officially been ruled out for Sunday's home game against the Bengals.
Alie-Cox hurt his knee last week in a game where he only garnered one target without a catch. Meanwhile, Trey Burton has seen 11 targets over the last two weeks since his return from injury. We all know that Phillip Rivers prefers throwing to his tight ends and it appears that Burton is becoming the favorite, even with a healthy Allie-Cox around. Expect an even bigger uptick in Burton's usage this week against the Bengals. Allie-Cox will hope to suit up again in Week 7 in Detroit.
Mo Alie-Cox (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday.
Alie-Cox has been tremendous when the Colts have actually used him, but he's been a non-factor since Trey Burton returned from IR. Alie-Cox can be left on the waiver wire in 12-team redraft leagues.
Mo Alie-Cox didn't catch his lone target as the Colts lost to the Browns on Sunday by a 32-23 score in Week 5 action.
With fellow tight ends Trey Burton and Jack Doyle both back on the field after dealing with injuries, Alie-Cox has seen his role reduced. Fantasy owners can drop Alie-Cox in all leagues.
