Sam Ehlinger To Start Against Texans, Nick Foles Ruled Out

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Nick Foles (ribs) will not play against the Houston Texans in Week 18. Interim head coach Jeff Saturday said Foles is still sore after taking a brutal hit against the New York Giants in the Week 17 loss. Sam Ehlinger will make his third start of the season, with Matt Ryan serving as his backup. Ehlinger has completed 41 of his 66 passing attempts for 364 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He remains off the fantasy radar in single-QB leagues in Week 18.

Sam Ehlinger Throws For 60 Yards In Blowout Loss

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger took over for Nick Foles (ribs) when the latter exited their Week 17 game against the New York Giants in the second quarter after a sack by Kayvon Thibodeaux. However, Ehlinger wasn't much of a help for the struggling Colts. While he went 9-for-14 in passes, he only gained 60 yards for an average of 4.3 per completion. The 24-year-old added 12 rushing yards on one attempt. However, Ehlinger did complete the Colts' only touchdown in the 38-10 blowout when he found Michael Pittman Jr. in the end zone for a six-yard pass. It remains to be seen if Foles or Ehlinger will be starting for Indianapolis in their season-ender against the Houston Texans next week. But either way, it's best to stay away from both players when looking for a quarterback for your fantasy roster.

Sam Ehlinger Won't Suit Up On Sunday Night

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger is inactive for Sunday's meeting with the Cowboys. Jeff Saturday had indicated earlier in the week he wanted to make a change to the depth chart. That's exactly what he did, as now Nick Foles will serve as Matt Ryan's backup. Ehlinger has played two games in 2022-23, throwing for 304 yards and an interception while completing just 61.5% of his throws. For those who still have the 24-year-old on their fantasy roster, it doesn't appear he'll be back under center anytime soon, as Foles is likely the next in line if Ryan continues to underperform offensively.

Sam Ehlinger Benched For Matt Ryan

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan will start in Week 10 against the Las Vegas Raiders over Sam Ehlinger. Interim head coach Jeff Saturday will go back to the veteran signal-caller in his first game as head coach on the road on Sunday. Ryan was seen taking snaps from starting center Ryan Kelly during pre-game warmups, which was the first sign that the Colts were making the switch at QB. The 37-year-old Ryan didn't look good at all in his first seven starts this year before being benched, but he has to be considered an upgrade for Indy's pass-catchers like Michael Pittman Jr., Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce. Still, he shouldn't be considered as anything more than a low-end QB2 in his return to the starting role against the Raiders.

Matt Ryan Takes First-Team Reps Over Sam Ehlinger

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan was spotted taking first-team reps over Sam Ehlinger prior to Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders. This is a significant development as it looks like interim head coach Jeff Saturday has made a change under center. Ryan completed 203 of 297 passes (68.4 percent) for 2,008 yards, nine touchdowns, and nine interceptions through the first seven weeks of the season. He was benched prior to Week 8. Through two games, Ehlinger tossed for just 304 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. He added 54 yards on the ground but was sacked a whopping nine times last week. The return of Ryan boosts the fantasy value of Jonathan Taylor, Michael Pittman Jr., Parris Campbell, and Alec Pierce.

Sam Ehlinger, Matt Ryan Not In Closed Competition

Indianapolis Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday said that the quarterback situation between Sam Ehlinger and Matt Ryan isn't a closed competition. Ryan has recovered from his right shoulder injury and will serve as Ehlinger's backup in Week 10 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Saturday said the team will constantly evaluate every position, so although the Colts said that Ehlinger would be their starter for the rest of the season before they fired head coach Frank Reich, there's now a possibility the Colts turn back to Ryan if Ehlinger continues to struggle under center. Ehlinger will likely be on a short leash now, and Ryan could once again become relevant in two-QB superflex leagues if he regains the starting role.

Matt Ryan To Back Up Sam Ehlinger

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan (shoulder) is set to be active against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10, but he'll serve as Sam Ehlinger's backup in Jeff Saturday's first game as the head coach. Those in deep two-QB or superflex leagues might want to consider picking up Ryan as a bench stash. Ehlinger's leash probably won't be long, and with a new coach leading the team, Ryan could find his way back on the field at some point this year. Under Ehlinger, the offense has been even worse, and the Colts' receivers have fallen off the fantasy radar.

Sam Ehlinger Will Remain The Starter In Indianapolis

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger will remain the team's starter, according to interim head coach Jeff Saturday. Saturday took over as head coach for Frank Reich, who was fired on Monday. That being said, the Colts will stick with Ehlinger instead of turning back to veteran signal-caller Matt Ryan, who was benched after Week 7. The benching was apparently the idea of team owner Jim Irsay and Ryan will continue to be sidelined despite the shake-up on the coaching staff. Ehlinger has thrown for 304 yards and one interception in two games. He's still looking for his first career touchdown pass.

Sam Ehlinger Brutal In Week 9 Blowout Loss

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger completed 15 of 29 passes for 103 yards and zero touchdowns while adding an interception in the Week 9 loss to the New England Patriots. This one never seemed close, as New England's defense dominated from start to finish, holding the Colts offense to just 121 yards. Ehlinger hasn't looked any better than Matt Ryan, so there could potentially be a decision made when Ryan's shoulder heals. The only thing Ehlinger provides that Ryan doesn't is his rushing ability. Ehlinger remains off of the fantasy radar in even the deepest of leagues in a matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders next week.

Sam Ehlinger Faces Tough Test In Week 9

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger took over for veteran Matt Ryan as the Colts' starting quarterback in Week 9, throwing for 201 scoreless yards en route to a loss. This week, Ehlinger's new life as a starting quarterback won't get any easier, as he takes on the New England Patriots stout defense. Head coach Bill Belichick is notoriously tough on young quarterbacks, and the Colts' struggling offense with a mediocre offensive line likely won't be an exception. Ehlinger is not a recommended fantasy play this week, but he could be a DFS dart throw if you're looking for value out of a cheap option at the position.
