When do you start thinking about selling off Colts players?

Postby Bowie » Mon Oct 30, 2006 9:07 am

They have nice match-ups during FF playoffs (I'm thinking about weeks 15 and 16), but the way they are rolling right now I could see them resting week 16 against HOU. I am personally concerned with Marvin Harrison, but would like to hear opinions on the rest of the Colts players as well.

We hear this every year. If you can get fair value, go ahead. However, I would not be worried about them sitting in Week 16 unless they have a nagging injury or something.

Yea....most teams aren't going to sit their offensive starters for the last 2 weeks. Especially players in a passing game like that can lose timing and momentum, so I wouldn't expect to see them sit before week 17 if they have things wrapped up.

Here is the box score for last year's week 16 Colts' loss to Seattle:

http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/live/NFL_20051224_IND@SEA

PASSING
CP/AT YDS TD INT
J. Sorgi 22/31 237 1 0
P. Manning 9/12 116 0 0

RUSHING
ATT YDS TD LG
E. James 13 41 0 11
J. Sorgi 3 7 0 6
J. Mungro 2 -1 0 0
D. Rhodes 5 -4 0 1

RECEIVING
REC YDS TD LG
B. Stokley 5 122 0 45
T. Walters 8 91 1 39
D. Clark 3 43 0 26
D. Rhodes 6 27 0 9
R. Wayne 2 21 0 15
B. Fletcher 2 19 0 10
A. Moorehead 2 16 0 9
E. James 3 14 0 6

From the recap:

"The Seahawks dominated a depleted Indianapolis team without Pro Bowlers Marvin Harrison, Cato June and Bob Sanders -- and with Manning (9 for 12, 116 yards passing) playing just one quarter."

Wayne and Edge were limited as well, if I remember correctly.

And you see where that got them playoff wise? I don't see them making the same mistake again.

When I hear the term "magical" in front of the 2006 Colt's season, that's when I started to get worried. They are now 7-0, right around 9-0 is when I start taking offers on my Colt's. Especially now that Denver has been debunked.

NE is 5-1 (going into tonight's game), SD is 5-2 and Den is 5-2.

They will need to lock up home field before resting their players. Hopefully, those teams can stay close. Plus, I think resting their players killed their momentum last year.
