Frank Gore - RBPosted 7/22/17 9:35am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore, who turned 34 in May, finished with 66.2 percent of the team's carries in 2015 and 64.5 percent of the team's rushing attempts in 2016.
Huddle Up: Gore ranks 10th all-time with 2,965 carries and should move up to fifth on the list with another season's worth of rushing attempts. It's a nice way of saying he's nearing the end of his career, but he remains productive - albeit somewhat inefficient - due to his superior fitness and training. Backup Robert Turbin has reportedly had a great spring and rookie Marlon Mack appears to be the future at the position, so expect Gore to be a low-end RB2 at best in 2017.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 7/21/17 9:16pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief was the star of spring practices, according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Huddle Up: Injuries derailed Moncrief last season, but if he and Andrew Luck both stay healthy, he could be in for a big year. He is worth the gamble when you start thinking about WR3 options.
Adam Vinatieri - PKPosted 7/19/17 8:51pm ET
Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri wants to play two more seasons, based on all indications. If he were to play through 2018, he would likely pass retired PK Morten Andersen for the NFL lead in career points and field goals made.
Huddle Up: Even though he's miraculously about to enter his age-45 season, Vinatieri remains up there with the best of them at his position in both effectiveness and consistency. As long as he keeps kicking for the high-powered Colts, he'll continue to be a viable option at kicker in all fantasy leagues.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/13/17 6:33pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has still not indicated if he has begun the throwing portion of his shoulder rehab, but Kevin Bowen of Colts.com believes the fact that no veteran quarterback was signed this offseason means Luck is on track to start in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Despite the fact he is coming off shoulder surgery, Luck should still be viewed as a QB1 as long as the outlook remains positive. He could easily finish as a top-five option at his position.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/8/17 8:55pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said he doesn't expect it to take long for he and QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) to find their rhythm. 'For him, the main thing is to just get healthy and we'll pick up where we left off,' Hilton said. 'Two days back-to-back is all we need.'
Huddle Up: Hilton tends to be overlooked a bit in fantasy circles, but he led the NFL in receiving yards last year and is the go-to target for one of the NFL's best quarterbacks. As long as Luck remains on track for the start of the season, you can feel confident snagging Hilton as a low-end WR1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/28/17 9:04am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) told reporters Wednesday, June 28, despite the fact his rehab is going well, he still has yet to throw since his January shoulder surgery.
Huddle Up: While it is entirely possible the Colts are just playing it safe by giving their quarterback as much time as they can to get his shoulder right, Luck is running the risk of suffering an arm injury in camp if he tries to overdo it in an effort to catch up. There's still no hint of pessimism regarding his Week 1 status, but owners may want to knock him down a peg or two on their draft board until he is cleared to throw.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 6/15/17 6:19pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is still expected to remain the 'workhorse' back this season and see around 16 to 18 carries per game, according to Mike Chappell of CBS 4 Indianapolis.
Huddle Up: Gore isn't flashy, but as long as he seeing a bulk of the carries for the Colts, he is going to remain a dependable flex option with RB2 upside against weaker opponents.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/13/17 9:26am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be an observer in the minicamp this week, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Luck is expected to be ready for the season, but he may be idle until at least training camp. He remains a high-end QB1 option in fantasy.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 6/13/17 9:43am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is unlikely to do much during the minicamp this week due to a hamstring strain. The injury didn't appear to be a long-term concern.
Huddle Up: Hilton is coming off a career year with a 91-1,448-6 line, and he relies on his speed. These things happen, but it's worth keeping in the back of your mind when drafting him as a low-end WR1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/13/17 4:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) doesn't know if he'll be ready for training camp. He remains focused on the present, focusing on each rehab session. 'That's where my focus is and that's where I think it needs to be to truly get back to 100 percent,' Luck said.
Huddle Up: Luck will be one of the bigger stories to keep an eye on as the offseason progresses. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks he should be ready for the start of the regular season at least. That being said, it's fine to draft him as a starting fantasy quarterback again this year.
Phillip Dorsett - WRPosted 6/13/17 8:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 13, because of an undisclosed injury.
Huddle Up: Dorsett is considered one of the team's top three receivers at this point but may have to compete with Kamar Aiken for playing time. He posted 528 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 but would only be a late-round pick in deeper leagues if he receives solid playing time.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/9/17 5:24am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is healing well, and he's still expected to be ready for the season, according to owner Jim Irsay. 'He was really struggling going through the process of being ready to play (each week last season),' Irsay said. 'This was, quite frankly, not that complicated of a surgery. This was a simple labrum repair. There are a lot of other things that could have been involved with this surgery that weren't.'
Huddle Up: Luck's health has been spotty the last couple of years due to an abomination of an offensive line allowing him to be hit more frequently. However, he still has some of the best pure talent at the position. He's still a high-end QB1 in fantasy.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/6/17 3:35pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has not yet begun to throw the football again as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery. Luck has yet to participate in organized team activities, although he has worked with the other quarterbacks and helped receivers with routes and timing. Luck will also miss next week's minicamp as the Colts don't want to rush back their star quarterback.
Huddle Up: There is some cause for concern with Luck, but it is only early June. His surgery happened in January so that he would ideally recover in time for the regular season. As of now, continue to draft Luck as a QB1, but keep tabs on his status as the offseason progresses.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 6/1/17 9:24pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle said he is trying to 'improve' in the area of being a leader in order to help the team, as he's by far the longest-tenured tight end on the roster. 'He's a reliable, reliable guy,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'The quarterback has a ton of faith and trust in that guy. He's always where he's supposed to be, and that makes a huge difference.'
Huddle Up: Doyle's newfound leadership role could be important for fantasy purposes, as it may help keep him in the TE1 conversation if he's getting consistent looks from quarterback Andrew Luck. Last season, Doyle registered career highs in catches (59), receiving yards (584) and touchdowns (five), and with Dwayne Allen dealt away, it's possible he crafts together another campaign with similar numbers.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 5/27/17 9:40pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton's 5,861 receiving yards through his first five seasons rank in the top 10 in NFL history, but Hilton said he is still focused on improving. 'Leave no stone unturned,' Hilton said. 'I work on everything ? footwork, speed work. Just continue to train everything ? my hands, eye-hand coordination.'
Huddle Up: After leading the NFL in receiving yards last season, Hilton doesn't seem to be slowing down. He is Andrew Luck's top target and a WR1 in all fantasy formats.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 5/10/17 6:45am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief wants more yards after catch after his 2.5 yards after catch ranked 106th of 119 qualified receivers last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Moncrief has just one game of 75 or more yards in his last 23 games.
Huddle Up: Moncrief was a breakout candidate last season but ultimately fizzled and got hurt. The fourth-year receiver is playing for a contract, and now is as good of a time as any to have that breakout. He has 13 touchdowns in 25 games the last two years and could be a low-end WR3 or a high-end WR4.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 5/9/17 11:23am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief has already caught the eye of new wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal. Lal said Moncrief is a "piece of clay" with all of the tools to be one of the better receivers in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Coaches are obligated to talk up their players during the offseason, for what it's worth. Moncrief missed significant time last season with a fractured shoulder, but he was supremely efficient in finding the end zone, scoring six times in his last seven games. Moncrief is a viable low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 option.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 5/9/17 12:25pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief wants to increase his yards after the catch this season, whether that's by getting into space or moving around the formation.
Huddle Up: Moncrief had just 58 yards after the catch on 30 receptions last year. He did only play in nine games, though. As stated earlier, the third-year receiver is best drafted as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 4/29/17 11:04am ET
The Indianapolis Colts selected South Florida RB Marlon Mack at No. 143 in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Mack is a big play waiting to happen and can be flex all over the field. He brings a dynamic quality to the Colts' backfield that Frank Gore doesn't offer. There could be a sizeable role for this rookie given Gore's age and Mack's talents. Check him out in 2017 drafts as a fifth back or risky fourth.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/17/17 4:16pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he first injured his shoulder during an early season game in 2015. Luck said he made the decision to undergo surgery and does not have a timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Luck likely will not do anything until training camp at the earliest. Luck is one of the better quarterbacks when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, but owners may want a strong backup in case Luck is not ready.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/28/17 5:39am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't be rushed back, according to owner Jim Irsay, who was mum when asked if Luck would be ready for offseason workouts and organized team activities. 'We are not going to be rushing him,' Irsay said. 'We are going to make sure, obviously, that the shoulder has to be ready and the doctors are going to give full approval before he starts putting real reps on it and that sort of thing. We really feel that he's going to be completely healed for the season and he's going to have a great season.'
Huddle Up: Luck is a top three or four quarterback option in fantasy when healthy. The team is being cryptic as to what he actually had repaired in his shoulder, but there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for the season.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 3/27/17 7:12am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Kamar Aiken has scored five of his six touchdowns in the red zone over the past two seasons.
Huddle Up: Aiken gives Andrew Luck a big target in the red zone, and he'll be in the mix for the third receiver spot with Phillip Dorsett. Aiken has some luster as a WR5 in fantasy.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 3/23/17 3:53pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Kamar Aiken said he was told 'there was going to be open competition in the receiving room' when deciding to sign with the team.
Huddle Up: This indicates Aiken will have every opportunity to compete with the likes of former first-round draft pick Phillip Dorsett and Chester Rogers to be the No. 3 receiver in Indianapolis. The former Baltimore Raven blossomed during the 2015 season when pressed into action due to injuries, but was seemingly phased out of the offense this past year. He can be a valuable commodity in deeper formats if he has an active role in the Colts' high-powered offense.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 3/8/17 1:19pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen was acquired by the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 8, according to a source. It is not known what the Colts will receive in the trade.
Huddle Up: Allen likely will replace Martellus Bennett in the team's offense and should have a solid role in the passing game. He will have to share targets with the other pass catchers on the team and probably should be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 3/7/17 4:45pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Jack Doyle agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Colts Tuesday, March 7, according to a source. Financial details were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Doyle came out of nowhere last year to finish in TE1 territory, even while splitting time with Dwayne Allen. A similar situation could unfold this season, but Doyle should still be considered a low-end TE1 to high-end TE2.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/3/17 2:22pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) does not have a timetable for his return, but indications are that he will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Luck probably will not do much during the offseason and will have several months to recover from his shoulder surgery. Luck should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 as long as he is completely healthy.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/1/17 4:22pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not be rushed back and there is no timetable for his return at this point, according to general manager Chris Ballard. Ballard said the team will follow the doctor's order in terms of Luck's recovery.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when Luck will be back on the field. There is a chance that he does not participate in any offseason workouts and could wait until the start of training camp. Luck should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 2/11/17 3:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle is expected to have several suitors in free agency following his breakout 2016 season in which he finished with 59 catches for 584 yards and five touchdowns, according to the Indianapolis Star.
Huddle Up: The Colts absolutely love what Doyle brings to the locker room and it should be noted he pretty much rivaled Coby Fleener's best seasons in Indy with the year he just had. However, Dwayne Allen received a huge four-year contract last season and isn't going anywhere, while the Colts are high on the upside of Erik Swoope, With all the help Indianapolis needs on defense, it is possible Doyle will be allowed to walk if he doesn't agree to a team-friendly deal.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 2/9/17 7:54pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Jack Doyle will likely have multiple suitors in free agency, according to beat writer Stephen Holder.
Huddle Up: Despite sharing duties with Dwayne Allen, Doyle emerged as a viable weapon in the passing game. If he is given the chance to be the No. 1 tight end somewhere, he could be a TE1 candidate in 2017.
Phillip Dorsett - WRPosted 2/9/17 7:44pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett had four catches of at least 50 yards last season, but he finished with 30 receiving yards or less in eight games.
Huddle Up: Dorsett has big-play speed, but he has yet to show he can provide decent week-to-week production. He will be a late-round lottery ticket in 2017 drafts.
