It has been a tough day on the injury front for some players that were drafted early in fantasy football drafts. First there was Adrian Peterson. Now the news breaks that Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief will be on the shelf for 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula:

From a fantasy perspective, you need to run to your waiver wire right now, seriously run now, and see if Phillip Dorsett is still available. The Colts are going to throw the ball as much as any team in the league and Dorsett is a talented player. He is going to see a lot of targets over the next month.

From a AFC South perspective, this is another blow to the Colts hopes. Most people thought they were the favorite to win this division before the season started. That is obviously not the case now with all of the injuries they have sustained and the 0-2 start. Can the Titans take advantage?
