Description: The Ravens cut former Colts quarterback Curtis Painter amongst a bevy of roster moves on Friday.
Insight: With Joe Flacco ahead of him on the depth chart, Painter never had a realistic chance to succeed in Baltimore so it's no surprise that they gave him the boot on cut day. Painter hasn't shown us much in his first three years of professional football (66.6 career QB rating) and we're guessing teams will be hesitant to sign him unless somebody gets injured. There's no fantasy upside here.

Description: Colts starting QB Kerry Collins is still experiencing concussion symptoms from last Sunday night's game and it's becoming more likely that Curtis Painter is going to start Week 4 (Monday night) vs. Tampa Bay.
Insight: Painter knows this offense more than Collins as he has studied under Peyton Manning the past few years and has learned a lot. The Colts signed Dan Orlovsky earlier this week just to make sure they have a viable backup for Painter should he go down.
