Monitor the Treylon Burks injury: Burks was carted to the locker room early in the fourth quarter with a foot injury and didn’t return.
- Burks received similar usage to past weeks, playing 32 of 39 offensive snaps in the first three quarters, including 19 of 23 pass plays.
- Cody Hollister took over as the third wide receiver in the fourth quarter.
- The Titans were winning at the time of Burks’ exit, so they largely went to more sets with multiple tight ends.
- Kyle Philips was active after playing limited snaps in Week 2 and missing Week 3, but he played only two snaps and didn’t return any punts after assuming that role in Week 1.
- Nick Westbrook-Ikhine would play a slightly higher percentage of plays if Burks misses time, while the door would be more open for Philips to become the main slot receiver again.
Monitor the Jonathan Taylor injury: Taylor suffered an injury that is believed to be a high ankle sprain.
- Taylor received his normal amount of usage before the injury, including 20 ineffective carries.
- Nyheim Hines took every snap after the injury, although this wasn’t surprising, as they were in clear passing situations.
- Taylor missed practice for the first time ever Wednesday with a toe injury.
- The Colts play on Thursday Night Football, making it less likely Taylor will be able to play this upcoming week.
- Hines ranked sixth in my handcuff rankings this offseason. The traditional pass-down back has some history playing on every down before Taylor became an All-Pro.
- Hines would be a top waiver wire target in the leagues he’s available this week, and he could go straight into starting lineups if Taylor misses next week.
Don’t add Mo Alie-Cox: The Colts' tight end caught two touchdowns but remains in a three-tight end rotation in Indianapolis.
- He ran a route on only 26 of 41 pass plays.
- Jelani Woods was the Colts' tight end to score two touchdowns last week, and at another point, Kylen Granson was leading the team in pass routes.
- All three tight ends have between 1.44 and 1.48 yards per route run this season.
- It’s fine to take dart throws on any of these three in daily fantasy, but none can be relied on in season-long leagues unless two get injured.
