The forecast for tonight's Colts-49ers game calls for a 100% chance of rain with winds of 20-30 mph. That's ugly -- and certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We'd try to avoid both of these passing games outside of 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and Colts WR Michael Pittman. You should also stay away from both Ks.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) has been downgraded to out for Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers. No surprise after he was unable to practice all week. Insider Kevin Bowen expects WR Ashton Dulin to take on a "much bigger role" behind WRs Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal. But Dulin is only in play in 1-game DFS contests.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the 49ers. He didn’t practice all week, though, so he seems unlikely to play. Hilton shouldn’t be in your Week 7 fantasy plans.

Colts WR Parris Campbell had surgery on his injured foot, he announced via Twitter. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says it "potentially" ends Campbell's season. We'll see if he's able to make it back, but he's not worth stashing in any redraft leagues.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) missed practice again on Thursday. He told reporters afterward that he's "50/50" to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday night, but we're not expecting to see him out there. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Colts S Julian Blackmon suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Wednesday's practice and will miss the rest of the season. Indy's 2nd-year starter at FS hasn't been a high-level IDP producer, but the injury takes away a player who as started 22 of the Colts' 23 games since he entered the league. Andrew Sendejo looks like the next man up. Indy lists him as Blackmon's backup on the "unofficial" depth chart, and Sendejo stepped in a couple of weeks ago when S Khari Willis missed time. Sendejo could present some low-level fantasy upside for deep IDP leagues.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly avoided a significant injury but looks iffy for Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is "doing fine" on Monday after hurting his quad in Sunday's win over the Texans, HC Frank Reich said. It looks like Hilton avoided a significant injury in his 2021 debut, but we'll see if he's able to play vs. the 49ers this weekend.

Colts HC Frank Reich told reporters Monday that WR Parris Campbell's foot injury is "significant" and that "he is going to miss some time," according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. The coach reportedly didn't give any more specifics, but that's enough to knock Campbell out of fantasy consideration in the few leagues where he still mattered. Campbell has drawn just 17 targets over 5 games so far this season.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton suffered a quad injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Texans and did not return. “I don’t think it’s bad,” HC Frank Reich said afterward. Hilton caught all 4 of his targets for 80 yards before exiting. We'll look for an update on the quad.

Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a foot injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Texans and is questionable to return. He caught a 51-yard TD before exiting. We'll update Campbell's status when we know more.

Colts CB Xavier Rhodes (concussion) is active for today's game against the Texans.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. It’s his 2021 debut after late-August neck surgery. We’ll see how big a role Hilton plays in this one, but he shouldn’t be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

The Colts on Saturday placed K Rodrigo Blankenship on IR for his hip injury. That means Blankenship will miss at least the next 3 games. Indy also elevated K Michael Badgley from the practice squad. He'll handle kicking duties Sunday against the Texans.

The Colts have activated WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) from IR. He had surgery for a disc issue just before the season and missed the first 5 games. We'd bet on Hilton working back to the #2 spot among Indianapolis wideouts but not pushing Michael Pittman aside.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Friday that he's "cautiously optimistic" WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) will be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend. It sounds like Hilton has been medically cleared and the team just wants to make sure he's back in game shape. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Hilton shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans.

Colts K Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Michael Badgley will kick for Indianapolis in that one and is a fine Week 6 fantasy fill in. The Colts are sporting a big 27-point implied total.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will practice on Wednesday for the 1st time since late-August surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. It's still unclear whether he'll play this weekend vs. the Texans. There's room for Hilton to carve out a sizable role in this Colts passing game, but we're not falling over ourselves to add him to fantasy rosters right now.

The Chiefs have "looked into" trading for Colts RB Marlon Mack, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported a couple of weeks ago that Mack is on the trade block. He's looked pretty good coming off last year's torn Achilles, averaging 4.3 yards on 20 attempts. The Chiefs, of course, have a need at RB after losing Clyde Edwards-Helaire for the next few weeks. We'll see where this goes, but Mack is an interesting stash if you have a roster spot to play with.

Colts K Rodrigo Blankenship injured his hip in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Ravens, HC Frank Reich said. Blankenship ended up missing an XP, getting a FG blocked and missing a 47-yard FG that would have won the game as time expired. We'll keep an eye on Blankenship this week, but you should plan on using someone else in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
