Colts WR Austin Collie is 'full go' for Week 1

A little more than two weeks ago, Colts wide reciever Austin Collie @AKCollie_17 suffered his fourth on-field concussion of the past 21 months. The word "retirement" was thrown around by some scribes, but Collie isn't done playing yet. And actually, he will play this Sunday versus the Bears after being medically cleared and practicing without limitations Monday.
Head coach Chuck Pagano described Collie as a "full go" in practice. "Fresh legs. Ran all over the place. Caught everything. Looked great."

Fantasy Analysis:

It's difficult to find a Colts starter I don't support this year. I am subscribing to the theory that while their current QB is worlds better than anyone who threw the ball for them last year, Indy's defense is still very rough, which means this team will take to the air early and often this season. Collie, Reggie Wayne, Andrew Luck, Donald Brown, I love them all. For Collie specifically, I think he's a reserve option for right now, but if he doesn't suffer any more concussions and is a part of this passing attack like I expect him to be, Collie will become a fine WR3 or flex in 12-team leagues.

While I am not taking the risk of starting Collie for wk1 I am thinking he will finish the game with 80yds & 1TD. I think he will prove to be Luck's favorite WR.
