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.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/19/17 5:18am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) had surgery on his right shoulder Thursday, Jan. 19, for an injury that lingered since 2015, according to owner Jim Irsay. Luck will be ready for the season.
Huddle Up: Luck had a decent year that was in line with his 2014 season, but he really hasn't hit that next gear to truly be the best QB in fantasy that he was projected to be. Injuries and the offensive line have been issues, but he's still one of the top three or four options on draft day.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/19/17 8:24am ET
Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will begin throwing in three months, and he'll be ready to return fully in six months.
Huddle Up: Luck will be ready right around the start of training camp, and it shouldn't hinder his prospects for the 2017 season. His 2016 was on par, but just below, his big 2014 season. We're still awaiting that full blossom from him, and he'll be in the mix of second-tier QBs in fantasy drafts.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 1/10/17 8:11pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton became the first receiving champion since retired Los Angeles Rams WR Torry Holt in 2000 to lead the NFL in receiving yards and not be voted to one of the two Associated Press All-Pro teams. Hilton led the league this season with 1,448 receiving yards.
Huddle Up: Despite the snub, Hilton still enjoyed a terrific campaign in 2016, as he also recorded 91 receptions and six touchdowns. Without question, the 27-year-old will be one of the first receivers taken off the board next season and will enter the new year as a desirable WR1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/2/17 9:57pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck set a new career high in completion percentage during the 2016 season, completing 346-of-545 (63.5 percent) of his passes. He also recorded a career high with 7.8 yards per attempt.
Huddle Up: It was another excellent fantasy season for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as he also finished with 31 touchdown passes compared to 15 interceptions. Furthermore, he logged a 96.4 quarterback rating, which goes down as the second highest of his career. Going into next season, Luck could arguably end up being the best value at quarterback, typically being selected in fantasy drafts after the usual suspects, yet he's still capable of topping them all in production. Have him on your QB1 radar in 2017.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 1/1/17 5:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted six receptions for 95 yards on 12 targets in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and is the first Colts player to win the receiving title since Reggie Wayne in 2007.
Huddle Up: Hilton finished with career highs in receptions (91) and receiving yardage (1,448), and he has found the end zone at least five times in each of his first five NFL seasons. He'll be a solid WR1 again in all fantasy leagues in 2017.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/1/17 5:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 321 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He went over 4,000 passing yards for the third time in five NFL seasons.
Huddle Up: Luck finished with 31 TDs, his second-highest total in five NFL seasons. He re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in 2016, proving he is a must-have starter after his injury-marred 2015 season.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 1/1/17 4:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 62 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, becoming the fourth player in NFL history to top 1,000 yards at age 33 or older. He is the oldest since former Washington Redskins RB John Riggins achieved the feat in 1984, and first 1,000-yard rusher for the team since RB Joseph Addai in 2007.
Huddle Up: Gore's career is winding down, but he showed he can still be trusted for fantasy purposes. If he plays in 2017 and is the starter, he will be a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play again.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/30/16 2:25pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for the team's Week 17 finale Sunday, Jan. 1, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has missed practice each day this week.
Huddle Up: In a meaningless game for the Colts, expect Moncrief to be on the sidelines, especially since he's been battling injury all year. When he was out on the field, though, he looked very promising, as despite being limited to nine games, he impressively managed seven touchdown catches. Chester Rogers and Phillip Dorsett will each get a boost in his absence, but both would be boom-or-bust plays this weekend.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/30/16 2:29pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: More of the usual from Gore, who consistently sits out on Wednesdays before logging full practices on Thursday and Friday. As has typically been the case with him this season, he'll be in the RB2 conversation, but don't be surprised if he sees some of his workload scaled back in the Colts' meaningless Week 17 finale.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/30/16 2:41pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Friday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: This is par for the course for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as he typically is limited throughout the week before getting in a full practice on Fridays. Luck is a QB1 option on a weekly basis, and even in the Colts' meaningless season finale, that will remain the case opposite the Jaguars.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/29/16 2:10pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Gore is only 34 yards away from eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark. He played well versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in their first outing of the season, too, making Gore an RB2 candidate.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/29/16 2:06pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Luck has played through a plethora of injuries this year, including to his throwing shoulder. The Jacksonville Jaguars have an underrated defense, but Luck is still a QB1 consideration for those in Week 17 championship tilts.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/29/16 2:00pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has missed practice for two straight days now. If he's sidelined tomorrow then his Week 17 availability will be doubtful. T.Y. Hilton is primed for WR1 numbers despite the possibility of being shadowed by Jalen Ramsey.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/28/16 2:40pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: The Jacksonville Jaguars have not been good this year, but their rush defense has been somewhat of a silver lining. However, when Gore played them earlier this year he tallied 95 total yards and a touchdown. View him as an RB2 for the final week of the season.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/26/16 2:40pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) is undergoing an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, Dec. 26, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: The Colts have nothing to play for in the final week of the season, so don't be surprised if Moncrief sits out Week 17. If he does then Phillip Dorsett will start in his place, but he hasn't done much even when Moncrief has been sidelined. He's a desperation start if Moncrief is out.
