News: The Colts placed defensive lineman Drake Nevis (hand) on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Nevis also finished last season on IR because of a back injury. He finished with just 20 tackles and one sack in nine games, so he didn't have any Fantasy value in IDP formats.
News: The Colts placed DL Drake Nevis on injured reserve on Tuesday. He was limited to just five games this season due to a back injury.
Analysis: Nevis was not much of an option in Fantasy when healthy so continue to ignore him in all IDP formats now that he is done for the year.
News: Colts DL Drake Nevis left Week 4 against the Buccaneers with a lower-back injury. He finished with three tackles and a pass defended prior to leaving the contest.
Analysis: Nevis is an interior lineman on the Colts' defense, who normally doesn't rack up a ton of stats. Fantasy owners should continue to leave him on the waiver wire, even when healthy.
News: The Colts drafted two defenders in the 2011 NFL Draft: LSU DT Drake Nevis (Round 3) and Michigan St. CB Chris Rucker (Round 6). Both are perfect fits for the Colts' Cover-2 scheme, which utilizes undersized, athletic defensive tackles and physical cornerbacks.
Analysis: Neither defender is expected to produce enough stats to warrant Fantasy use. Keep both off of rosters.
