QB - FA
Scott Tolzien was pulled in favor of Jacoby Brissett as the Colts were blown out in Week 1 against the Rams 46-9. Tolzien was benched late in the fourth quarter and Brissett took the team down for the only touchdown of the game. Tolzien tossed two pick sixes while passing for only 128 yards. He added two yards on the ground.
The Colts desperately need Andrew Luck back and it looks like he will miss all of September, which means at least two or three more games. Tolzien may have lost his starting job to Brissett but fantasy owners should be streaming against the Colts if Tolzien is back under center in Week 2.
Scott Tolzien will start Week 1 against the Rams as Andrew Luck has been ruled out due to a shoulder injury. Jacoby Brissett was acquired via trade and Tolzien will probably have a short leash in this game.
Tolzien is not a fantasy option even against the Rams and even in two-quarterback leagues. If Brissett does start, he's worth a look in deeper leagues, two-quarterback leagues or DFS play.
Scott Tolzien, the probable starter for Week 1 if Andrew Luck can't play, didn't show much against the Steelers on Saturday. Tolzien finished with 123 yards on 7-for-10 attempts including one interception.
Tolzien is the presumed starter for the Colts in Week 1 if Luck can't go and the Rams would be on the streaming radar for fantasy owners. Tolzien is not worth a look as a streamer QB2 in Week 1. It would also be a downgrade for the Colts weapons including Hilton, Moncrief and Doyle.
Indianapolis Colts QB Scott Tolzien completed 22-of-36 passes for 205 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Tolzien was also sacked three times as the Colts fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-7.
If Colts starting QB Andrew Luck isnâ€™t cleared from the concussion protocol by next week, Tolzien will have a favorable matchup going against the New York Jets. However, unless you are in a very deep league and are desperate for a starting QB, I would stay away from the Coltsâ€™ number two signal caller.
Stephen Holder of the Indy Star reports that Indianapolis Coltsâ€™ backup QB Scott Tolzien may have some competition for the position with QB Stephen Morris. When Tolzein was initially signed, it was assumed that Tolzein would be the backup, however, Morris has been playing pretty well during the offseason and may give Tolzein a run for the job.
If everything goes according to plan in Indianapolis, this battle wonâ€™t even matter. Coltsâ€™ starting QB Andrew Luck, when healthy, is one the most talented QBs in the NFL. However, in the NFL things donâ€™t always go according to plan. Last year, Luck missed nine games with numerous injuries in what was easily the worst season of his young career. The Coltâ€™s ended up having to play five QBs over the course of a disappointing season where they failed to make the playoffs for the first time since Luckâ€™s been with the team. As meaningless as this battle may seem, the Colts' may have to rely on one of these players at some point during the season.
