Frank Reich - HCPosted 6/16/18 5:42pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is under a throwing regimen designed by head coach Frank Reich, a regimen designed to test how far Luck's shoulder has progressed. If Luck passes all the tests, the team anticipates no limitations when training camp opens.
Huddle Up: As Luck goes, so go the Colts. There's no reason to suspect Luck should be anything below a mid-to-low QB1 or a high QB2 if the shoulder is healthy.
Nyheim Hines - RBPosted 6/15/18 7:35am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has been lining up in the backfield, in the slot and out wide in practice. Hines was among the most active players on the offense through spring and summer workouts, a clear indication that head coach Frank Reich and offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni have big designs for him.
Huddle Up: Hines could be an RB5 flyer that pans out for more. Marlon Mack figures to start, but he's unproven. If Hines' versatility shows well, and he stays healthy, look out.
Deon Cain - WRPosted 6/15/18 6:38pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain could open the season as the No. 3 wide receiver, according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, and Keefer expects Cain to see 'lots of snaps' this season.
Huddle Up: It's asking a lot for Cain to be a dependable fantasy option as a rookie, but his size could allow him to make an immediate impact in the red zone. He's at least worth stashing in keeper formats.
Chester Rogers - WRPosted 6/15/18 7:17pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers (undisclosed) missed all of minicamp with a minor injury.
Huddle Up: Rogers dealt with a hamstring issue last year, but it is unclear if this injury is related. He has a chance to open the year as the No. 2 receiver for the Colts, so Rogers could find himself in a great spot if both he and Andrew Luck are healthy. He's not a bad receiver to grab in the later rounds.
Robert Turbin - RBPosted 6/14/18 6:30pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Robert Turbin 'brings an element of size and power' to the offense, according to head coach Frank Reich, and Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star believes Turbin will have an 'important place' on the offense.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Turbin is going to be part of the committee in Indianapolis, and while Marlon Mack looks like the best fantasy option of the group, Turbin is worth keeping an eye on in case he handles the carries near the goal line.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/13/18 3:49pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) threw 15 to 20 passes during practice Wednesday, June 13, including a 20-yard pass to RB Jordan Wilkins. Luck was throwing an official NFL football during practice. He is not scheduled to participate in practice Thursday, June 14.
Huddle Up: It appears like Luck is making progress and should continue to throw passes leading up to training camp. The team expects Luck to be ready for the season, but owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy, but owners will need backup plans in case Luck is not ready.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/12/18 10:38am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) threw a football for the first time since October of 2017 on Tuesday, June 12. Luck reportedly threw about 10 passes at Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, none for more than 10 yards. The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer reports he'll ramp up his regimen over the next six weeks.
Huddle Up: The Colts have endured their fair share of ridicule for their handling of Luck since last year's fiasco, but the important thing is that his shoulder is sound, so it shouldn't matter whether he began throwing in March or June. Fantasy owners will obviously need to keep a close eye on reports regarding Luck ramping up his regimen over the next few weeks, but the fact he is throwing now is light years ahead of where he was last year at the same time. He's a risk-reward QB1 if he is ready for training camp.
Eric Ebron - TEPosted 6/8/18 7:19pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron said he looks forward to playing with QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) because he is 'always open' in head coach Frank Reich's offensive system.
Huddle Up: A change of scenery and Andrew Luck could help Ebron finally reach his potential, but he remains a boom-or-bust TE2 candidate for now.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/7/18 11:42am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is 'real close' to finally throwing a football again, according to head coach Frank Reich. Luck will essentially decide when he does start throwing.
Huddle Up: At this point it's a 'believe it when we see it' situation. Luck hasn't thrown in about a year and a half, so it will take some time for him to get back to full speed and to feel comfortable in a real-game scenario. For now, view Luck as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 6/3/18 7:13pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will still have opportunities to make plays down the field in head coach Frank Reich's fast-paced offense. 'A lot of jabs, stick and move, and then here comes the big punch,' Reich said. 'And when you keep them off-balance with the jab and you set up the big one.'
Huddle Up: Hilton managed 966 yards last year without Andrew Luck under center. If Luck's shoulder holds up, Hilton should jump right back into the WR1 conversation.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 5/30/18 7:30pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant worked as the No. 2 receiver during organized team activities Wednesday, May 30.
Huddle Up: Grant appears to have a good chance to win the starting job opposite T.Y. Hilton if he has a solid preseason. He is coming off a solid 2017 season and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver depending on his role.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 5/23/18 7:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not throw during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, and head coach Frank Reich said he is not sure if Luck will throw before the end of June minicamp but is confident that Luck will ramp things up in time for training camp.
Huddle Up: Owners will continue to monitor the situation to see when Luck will be able to throw again. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky option for fantasy owners in 2018. Owners that select him will need very good backup options on their roster.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 5/20/18 1:56pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is the favorite over Chester Rogers to start opposite T.Y. Hilton, based on the one-year, $5 million contract Grant signed in free agency, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Huddle Up: It's poor reasoning from Rosenthal and runs counter to The Indianapolis Star' Zak Keefer, who reported a couple of weeks ago that Rogers is the 'leading candidate' to start in 2018. Rogers is reportedly picking up the new offense quickly and already has some chemistry with Andrew Luck. Grant can be a fine slot option, but asking him to hold up on the outside on a regular basis may be too big of a request.
Eric Ebron - TEPosted 5/17/18 7:09pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron could be the 'de facto third receiver' this year, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Ebron has teased fantasy owners with his upside since entering the league. There is always a chance Andrew Luck could finally unlock Ebron's potential, but he is no more than a flier as a TE2.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 5/16/18 11:55am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has stood out so far in the offseason program and appears to be giving new head coach Frank Reich and the coaching staff his full effort.
Huddle Up: We already know Hilton is an elite wide receiver and will do his part for the Colts, but it's reassuring to know that he's on board with a new coaching staff. Hilton obviously isn't as productive without Andrew Luck, though. He's a WR1 with Luck and a WR2 without him.
Nyheim Hines - RBPosted 5/12/18 6:51pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has displayed an impressive ability to catch the ball, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Hines spent some time as a receiver in college, and it sounds like his versatility is making a good first impression. He is worth a flier as a RB5 in all formats, and he could make an immediate impact in PPR leagues.
Deon Cain - WRPosted 5/12/18 9:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain could 'find catches as a rookie' despite being a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: A strong training camp will help his cause, but Cain has the size and athleticism to be an impact receiver. He has enough long-term potential to stash in keeper formats.
Matt Jones - RBPosted 5/9/18 8:17am ET
Free-agent RB Matt Jones (Colts) will sign with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, May 9, according to a source. Terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Jones will have to battle for a spot, but he's worth keeping on a watch list as an RB5.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 5/7/18 9:00pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack 'remains the favorite to slide into the starting role' left behind by Frank Gore and 'assume whatever the Colts consider a No. 1 running back in 2018,' according to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.
Huddle Up: The Colts did not give Mack any true competition in the form of an early-round running back in the draft and have yet to sign a free agent who could push him. While telling The Star that Mack needs to improve in pass pro, general manager Chris Ballard also said 'everything with Marlon was better than I expected, everything.' Indianapolis will probably open the season with a committee backfield, but Mack should be given a shot to run away with the job if he starts fast. He's a high-upside, high-end flex option for now.
Matt Jones - RBPosted 5/1/18 7:58am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Matt Jones was waived Tuesday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Jones' sand in the fantasy hourglass is wearing thin, but he's still worth keeping on a watch list.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 5/1/18 8:11pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) played with a torn labrum in 2017, according to general manager Chris Ballard. Mack underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair the tear and expects to be fully healthy by training camp.
Huddle Up: The Colts did very little to address the running back position in the draft or free agency, so this is Mack's backfield to lead despite head coach Frank Reich suggesting his team doesn't have a starting running back right now. At the very least, Mack figures to nearly double his 93 carries from a season ago, which would make him a strong flex option and possible RB2 given his big-play ability.
Nyheim Hines - RBPosted 4/30/18 6:23am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has a unique skill set that should enable him to be a factor in the offense as both a runner and receiver. Hines played two years of receiver in college before moving to the backfield after a logjam cleared. Hines said multiple teams discussed drafting him and making him a permanent slot receiver.
Huddle Up: Hines is the type of RB5 flyer you target for the most potential reward. His stock could grow during training camp.
Nyheim Hines - RBPosted 4/28/18 9:20am ET
The Indianapolis Colts selected North Carolina State RB Nyheim Hines with the 104th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Hines could share some of the playing time with Marlon Mack this season but may not have a big role in the offense. He probably should only be valuable in keeper leagues in 2018.
Deon Cain - WRPosted 4/28/18 12:41pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts picked Clemson WR Deon Cain with the 185th overall selection (Round 6) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Cain was a deep threat for the Tigers, and he was a huge cog in the offense during their 2016 national championship season. He follows in the footsteps of Martavis Bryant, DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Mike Williams, as Clemson's just keeps pumping out NFL-caliber wideouts. He went later than many figured, but he has some upside and could be a big-play option for Andrew Luck before too long. Remember, Antonio Brown was once a Round 6 pick, too.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/28/18 2:47pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was a trade target for a few teams, but the Colts did not consider any trade offers, according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: Luck missed the entire 2017 season but appears to be on track for the 2018 season. Owners will need to monitor the situation during offseason workouts and training camp to see if he suffers any setbacks. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 4/28/18 7:01pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not the clear starter, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'I'm fine with running back by committee,' Reich said.
Huddle Up: Mack should still be considered the frontrunner to start, but he could share touches with Nyheim Hines and others. Mack looks like a RB3 candidate at this point.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/25/18 8:46am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is participating in every part of minicamp except throwing, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Luck is a wild card in fantasy this year. He could wind up being a top-three option, but his health continues to a pressing issue.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 4/13/18 8:45pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack said he is working with the team nutritionist to add a few pounds this offseason in order to handle more carries.
Huddle Up: If the Colts don't add another back early in the draft, Mack could be given a chance to lead the backfield in 2018. In that scenario, he would be worth grabbing as a RB3.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/9/18 11:09am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he has not thrown a regular football at this point because he does not want to skip any steps in his rehab. He said he trusts the process he is going through with his recovery.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to continue to monitor the situation to see if he will be ready for training camp or the regular season. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners but should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues if he is ready to play Week 1.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/29/18 7:18pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant has 'position versatility' and can be productive on the outside or in the slot, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Grant could end up seeing a lot of time in the slot for Indianapolis. Playing with Andrew Luck gives him a chance at fantasy relevance, and he could provide depth as a WR5.
