The Lowdown: Jeremy Hill, Aaron Dobson, Colts Offense

Andrew Luck

Jeremy Hill

Jeremy Hill finished off his strong preseason Thursday night by carrying the ball 26 times for 160 yards on the ground and adding another 70 yards on six receptions. Head Coach Marvin Lewis wanted Hill to familiarize himself with what it is like to have an NFL workload.

“Well, Jeremy has to understand what it’s like to be an NFL running back,” said Lewis. “We aren’t five deep. When we get to Sundays and we go down to 46 guys, and if he’s going to be the guy, then he’s going to have to be able to shoulder the load. You can get some good conditioning out there tonight. They were good snaps for him to learn with tonight.”

While Giovani Bernard has had a rather lackluster preseason, Hill has been making the most of his. Justin Winn believes Hill is a better value than Bernard1 and Shawn Siegele thinks Hill could be the No. 1 rookie in 2014. I also targeted Hill as one of three late round RBs to target this year. I’m very high on this kid and with how things are shaping out this preseason, I am targeting him at all costs.

Aaron Dobson

I briefly touched on Dobson yesterday as he was set to make his preseason debut after returning from injury. He recorded three receptions for 57 yards and a TD.

“I’m glad I got out there in this game,” Dobson said. “Got my feet back up under me just so I can get ready for the next game. It was a need for me to get out there today.”

“It felt good just to be out there, running around, going game speed with my teammates,” Dobson said.

I am bringing up Dobson for the second day in a row because I think he makes for the perfect candidate to draft at a relatively low cost.2 According to Fantasy Football Calculator, he still doesn’t have an ADP. Shawn Siegele selected Dobson as one of eight breakout WRs you need to own in 2014. Justin Winn also believes in Dobson this year. Take a flier on Dobson, while he’s still considered a flier.

Colts Offense

The Colts offensive line has been plagued by injuries lately. They lost another player last night. Per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

“The Colts have seen injuries cost them guard Donald Thomas for the season and center Khaled Holmes for all but one drive of preseason action and they didn’t get through their final exhibition of the summer without seeing another offensive lineman go down.

Veteran Joe Reitz, who was playing left tackle for the Colts on Thursday but has played all over the line during his career, left the game with an ankle injury. His return is being called questionable.”

These offensive line issues make me even more concerned about Trent Richardson. Richardson is one of the players I am avoiding this year. The Colts are getting thin up front and this certainly doesn’t help Andrew Luck and their offense. Fantasy Douche writes about how Luck could be the top fantasy QB in 2014 this year. He makes a strong case, but lets hope this offensive line doesn’t become an issue.

  1. I agree  (back)
  2. I’ve Drafted him on all my teams so far this year.  (back)
