Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri (groin), rookie linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) and left tackle Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) are all active on Thursday night against the Patriots. Vinatieri might struggle for kicking opportunities if a banged-up Colts team is playing from behind all night, which makes him a weak fantasy play. Leonard and safety Clayton Geathers (knee), who is also active, will help Indy's soft defense slow down a Patriots attack that just got better with the return of receiver Julian Edelman. Leonard has four sacks through four weeks and has become an IDP beast quickly in his rookie year. Castonzo will be making his season debut, which is good news for quarterback Andrew Luck. Still, Luck is an advisable QB1 in a game in which he's missing receiver T.Y. Hilton, running back Marlon Mack and tight end Jack Doyle.

Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri (groin), left tackle Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) and rookie linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) were all limited in practice on Wednesday and are questionable for Thursday night against the Patriots. The Colts haven't signed another kicker, so we'd expect Vinatieri to give it a go. However, with the Colts likely to be playing from behind, he's not a strong fantasy option. Castonzo has yet to play this year as quarterback Andrew Luck's blind-side protector. Leonard has four sacks on the year and has been an IDP beast through four weeks. If he's active, he should be in starting lineups as a tackling machine.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (hip) missed practice for the second straight day on Tuesday. It looks like he'll be missing his third straight game. That lines up Eric Ebron for another TE1 performance with receiver T.Y. Hilton (chest, hamstring) also looking unlikely to suit up on Thursday against the Patriots. Kicker Adam Vinatieri (groin) missed practice after being a full participant on Monday. That's an ominous sign for the veteran booter, but perhaps the Colts are just resting him on a short week.
