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.
Eric Ebron - TEPosted 3/29/18 7:33pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron is an 'elite' player at his position, according to head coach Frank Reich, and Reich expects Ebron to be able to exploit man coverages.
Huddle Up: Ebron has been teasing fantasy owners with his physical tools since coming into the NFL, but he's yet live up to the hype. Feel free to gamble on him as an upside TE2, but Ebron's move to Indianapolis is likely to hurt Jack Doyle's fantasy value more than it will help his own.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/27/18 5:08am ET
Updating an ongoing story, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has begun throwing a football, according to head coach Frank Reich. Reich is optimistic Luck will cut it loose sometime this offseason, and it's clear he's trending in the right direction.
Huddle Up: Luck will be under consideration after the first few quarterbacks are taken, and you'll have to assess the risk versus the reward for the upper-middle QB1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/26/18 9:50pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has 'turned the corner,' according to owner Jim Irsay, who added that 'all indicators are (the) healing is going really well and we feel really optimistic.' The 'expectation' is that Luck will be on hand when the team begins their offseason conditioning program April 9.
Huddle Up: It's looking a little more likely Luck will be ready to open up next season, but then again, it still remains to be seen how effectively he can throw the football at this point. This is going to be one of the top storylines to monitor going into the summer, so it's still too early to determine if the former No. 1 overall draft pick can return to old form and be an elite fantasy QB1 once again.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/22/18 5:50am ET
Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Colts) is visiting the Miami Dolphins Thursday, March 22.
Huddle Up: Gore can still be useful in fantasy if he receives volume carries. He might top out as an RB3, but there isn't a lot of upside.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/22/18 1:04pm ET
Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Colts) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins Thursday, March 22, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Gore likely will serve as a backup to Kenyan Drake in 2018 but could receive some touches during games. He may be a late-round pick in deeper standard leagues but proobably will not be a big factor for owners.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/14/18 6:52pm ET
Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Colts) is close to reaching a contract agreement with Detroit Lions, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gore is one of several veteran running backs that the Lions have met with this offseason. He could receive most of the carries if he joined the Lions but would have to share work with Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah. Gore could be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if the deal is finalized.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/13/18 1:54pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Donte Moncrief plans to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to source.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has been held to under 400 yards in each of the last two seasons but does have nine touchdowns during that span. He probably will be the No. 3 receiver for the Jaguars next season and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/12/18 10:09pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is expected back in the team facility this week for a checkup. He has been working in California with quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux and the expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Yes, the club had this same stance around this point last year but after a full season off, things should be different this time around. There's still a lot more to follow pertaining to Luck's health, such as this upcoming checkup in Indianapolis, so it is obviously too early in the process to determine whether or not he'll be able to return to fantasy relevance next season. The ceiling is certainly high, though.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/8/18 8:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief 'isn't likely' to be re-signed by the club, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, as 'all current indications' point to the two sides 'parting ways for good' after the free-agent market opens up on Wednesday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has exhibited flashes of extraordinary potential since being selected in 2014, but the former third-round draft pick has largely been ineffective the last two seasons, mostly due to injuries and the Colts' woes at quarterback with Andrew Luck sidelined. He could easily blossom into a WR3 again elsewhere, so it'll be worth watching where he ends up.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/7/18 2:37pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Frank Gore would like to sign with a contender this offseason and wants to be a starter or a significant contributor for a team since he believes he probably has only one more season left, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Gore has been a solid running back for the last several seasons, but it is not known if he will be able to find a starting job in free agency. He can be a No. 3 fantasy running back in standard leagues if he receives a solid role with a team.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/6/18 7:36am ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Donte Moncrief has been linked to the Baltimore Ravens, who are revamping their receiving corps.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has been a sleeper for a couple of years, but he has never put it together or avoided injuries. He'll remain a lukewarm WR3 or WR4 flyer.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/1/18 5:07am ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Frank Gore was informed by general manager Chris Ballard that he won't be re-signed by the Colts.
Huddle Up: He turns 35 in May, and he could still be useful in a smaller role on a team. He cleared 100 yards in two of his last four games and could serve as fantasy depth at the position.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/28/18 12:05pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is on track to join the team's offseason program April 2, head coach Frank Reich said Wednesday, Feb. 28, at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine. Reich said Luck 'checked every box.'
Huddle Up: Good news, obviously. Luck has QB1 potential but has to be backed up with a legit fantasy starter. He will provide an intriguing risk-reward ADP in most scenarios.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 2/28/18 12:10pm ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is unlikely to return. Indy Star writer Zak Keefer said Colts head coach Frank Reich 'all but confirms the Colts are moving on from Gore' after Reich fielded questions Wednesday, Feb. 28, at the 2018 Scouting Combine.
Huddle Up: No surprise here. Gore turns 35 this year and will be used only in select situations, provided he is even able to find a 2018 home. He is no more than fantasy roster depth.
Adam Vinatieri - PKPosted 2/22/18 8:24am ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri (Colts) agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Feb. 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: If Andrew Luck (shoulder) is healthy, the offense should receive enough of a boost to put Vinatieri back in the low-end PK1 conversation in fantasy.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/21/18 5:47am ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is throwing weighted balls, which are heavier than footballs, in his rehabilitation.
Huddle Up: Luck will carry some risk, but he confirmed a second surgery isn't on the table right now. He's worth taking as a QB1 if you miss out of on the first few.
Adam Vinatieri - PKPosted 2/21/18 7:11am ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri is close to finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Colts, and it's expected to be done Thursday, Feb. 22.
Huddle Up: Vinatieri was just outside of the top 12 at the position last year on what was an atrocious offense. He has a chance to sneak back into the fold as a low-end PK1 this season.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 2/21/18 12:12pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is not expected to be re-signed. Gore will turn 35 years old this offseason but still wants to play. He is just 75 yards shy of reaching fourth on the NFL's all-time rushing list.
Huddle Up: Gore is nearing the end of his road in the NFL, but he's not completely washed up. At worst he can be used in short-yardage and goal-line situations. That being said, he is at best a late-round flex for fantasy purposes, wherever he plays.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/20/18 3:24pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still rehabilitating his throwing shoulder, but head coach Frank Reich hopes his star quarterback is healthy enough to participate in organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Luck had a 2017 to forget under the vague protection of Jim Irsay and company. He should be able to return at full health this season and the new coaching staff should be a breath of fresh air. If he is 100% then he's worth the risk of drafting as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback again.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/15/18 5:12pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he is excited about the offense head coach Frank Reich is bringing to the team. 'That sounds great,' Luck said. 'I know all the best offenses that I've been a part of in my career we've not been static and we've attacked. And I'm sure he'll have a great flavor and we'll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it's all about.'
Huddle Up: Luck's status for the 2018 season is still in question, so owners need to monitor the situation during the offense. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky fantasy option. Luck can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is cleared, but owners may want a solid backup in case he misses time.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/13/18 1:18pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and company will implement a strong element of no huddle into their offensive game plans, according to new head coach Frank Reich. 'We want to impose our will on the opponent,' Reich said.
Huddle Up: That's all well and good, but Reich's offense will largely hinge on the health of Luck. With Luck returning and the Colts under a new regime, things are looking up. Assuming they are at full health, Luck and T.Y. Hilton are QB1 and WR1 candidates, respectively.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/13/18 1:32pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has met with throwing experts in California as part of his rehabilitation process, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Luck has not begun throwing yet, but he does appear to be close to making that next step in his recovery from a torn labrum.
Huddle Up: Luck has had plenty of time and has plenty more time to make a full recovery with his throwing shoulder. The Colts have been extra careful with their star quarterback in an effort to have him prepared for the 2018 season. Again, if he is full go he is worth drafting as a QB1 even following the serious injury and extensive recovery.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/7/18 8:28am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) doesn't require more surgery, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'He doesn't need surgery,' Ballard said. 'I've not gotten than from the two doctors. He's not throwing a football yet and is working on arm speed. He's not going to skip a step.'
Huddle Up: Luck's availability is a big question mark again next season, and he could be an early backup option with big potential reward.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 2/6/18 6:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) may not out of the woods yet regarding his right shoulder, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported 'there still are doctors who have concerns about Luck's shoulder and whether he could wind up needing additional surgery.'
Huddle Up: This is the most plausible explanation as to why Josh McDaniels had a change of heart about accepting the Colts' head coaching job, although that is pure speculation at this point. If this report turns out to be true, Indianapolis is going to be in a world of hurt again in 2018 despite the fact Jacoby Brissett actually held his own for the most part in his first season with the Colts. Until he actually resumes throwing, Luck's availability for next season cannot be taken for granted.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 2/4/18 11:33am ET
The Indianapolis Colts could consider offering impending free-agent WR Donte Moncrief a short-term deal where he would have to prove his value, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has been limited to 21 games over the last two seasons because of injuries and posted only two touchdowns this season. He could receive some interest from teams during free agency but may not be a starting receiver in 2018. He has played well at times during his career but should be considered a No. 4 fantasy receiver next season.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/30/18 9:04am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is doing functional work - such as working on his motion and arm speed - to get strength back in the shoulder and is reportedly 'very close' to throwing again, according to a source. He is also reportedly headed out to the Los Angeles area in the near future to work with noted throwing mechanics and strength gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux.
Huddle Up: Luck is hardly out of the woods yet, but there seems to be a great deal of optimism we won't see a repeat of 2017. Furthermore, it's unlikely Josh McDaniels would be taking the head coaching job in Indianapolis if he wasn't getting exceedingly positive feedback regarding the recovery. As long as Luck gets some work in this summer, he should be able to return to the QB1 ranks in 2018.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/1/18 1:55pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be back 'with a fierce fire in his eyes' in 2018, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: Luck will have had two years to rest his injured shoulder, so one would assume he'll be full go for the 2018 season. His lack of playing time leading up to the season will certainly be a concern, but we know he can be a top-tier No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy.
