Tip to Kuharsky, an insider fantasy piece

Collie is off to a rather historic start to the season, having registered a pair of games with 10 or more receptions and 150 or more yards twice in a team’s first three contests, which had not happened since the NFL-AFL merger. In addition, Collie is the first Colt to have a receiving touchdown in each of the team’s first three games of a season since 1999, when Marvin Harrison did it. Before that, it had been 38 years since a Colts receiver did it.

And yet, I got the feeling Collie’s terrific Week 1 performance in the loss to the Houston Texans and his understated Week 2 outing against the New York GiantsPierre Garcon, himself active in 13.7 percent of leagues in Week 3, would miss the Week 3 game with a sore hamstring — he didn’t even make the trip to Denver — was made official Saturday, and resulted in Garcon being dropped in a healthy portion of leagues, but it didn’t result in Collie getting enough fantasy attention. were viewed with skepticism, since he was on the bench in 69 percent of ESPN standard leagues Sunday.
