Jordan Wilkins - RBPosted 8/15/18 12:08pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has emerged as a potential backup, taking advantage of the absence of RB Marlon Mack (hamstring).
Huddle Up: Mack is expected to be back for the opener, so Wilkins isn't someone to pin your fantasy hopes upon. He is also still jockeying with rookie Nyheim Hines, as well as veterans Christine Michael and Branden Oliver for a meaningful role. Still, he is a name worth filing away if he wins a job on the 53-man roster and Mack goes down again at some point during the season.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 8/10/18 12:29pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks with a 'manageable hamstring strain,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who adds the team is still awaiting final confirmation.
Huddle Up: Robert Turbin got a bit of early run for the Colts after Mack left Thursday, but he will be serving a suspension to begin the season. It's very likely Indianapolis will give rookies Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines some more opportunities as the preseason progresses, and those two players should be the ones owners are targeting in fantasy drafts after Mack. The Colts' backfield figures to be a committee attack all season long.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 8/10/18 3:13pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is considered week-to-week because of a hamstring injury, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: The Colts likely will take things slow with Mack because it is a hamstring injury. Owners should monitor the situation because Mack probably will lead the team in carries in 2018. Mack can be considered a No. 3 receiver if he is healthy for Week 1.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 8/9/18 10:33am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is expected to play between two to four series, according to The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.
Huddle Up: That amount of playing time is a lot for a starting quarterback in the first game of the preseason, but Luck needs it. He hasn't thrown a football in any game since New Year's Day in 2016. Don't be surprised to see some rust, but Luck has mid-range QB1 upside if he can stay on the field.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 8/9/18 8:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) exited the preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury Thursday, Aug. 9, and won't return.
Huddle Up: Mack was expected to be the starter for the Colts, and if the injury turns out to be serious, Robert Turbin, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines could all see more touches. Thanks to his pass-catching prowess, Hines would likely have the easiest path to fantasy relevance.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 8/9/18 8:18pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) completed six of his nine pass attempts for 64 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: The numbers were of secondary importance for Luck. He made it through his brief appearance without any noticeable issues, and if he continues to look healthy throughout the preseason, you can expect him to start being drafted as a midrange QB1 in short order.
Erik Swoope - TEPosted 8/8/18 12:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Erik Swoope has reportedly been having a strong training camp, but he remains behind newcomer TE Eric Ebron and incumbent TE Jack Doyle on the depth chart.
Huddle Up: Swoope is a college basketball player turned football player, a la Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates. He missed the entire 2017 season due to a knee injury, but is turning heads in the summer. It might take a deal to another organization to give him any fantasy value, but he is a name worth stashing away for later just in case.
Chester Rogers - WRPosted 8/8/18 4:15pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers needs to show more consistency with the first-team offense if he wants a chance to win the No. 2 receiver job, in the opinion of 1070 The Fan's Kevin Bowen.
Huddle Up: Rogers likely will be the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver if he is not able to win a starting job. He has played well at times in the past but should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 8/7/18 9:45am ET
Indianapolis Colts WRs Ryan Grant and T.Y. Hilton 'have really separated themselves' with regards to the top two receiver spots on the depth chart, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: With all due respect to Grant, this would not be among the most favorable outcomes for the Colts if he holds off the competition. Grant has long been a favorite of his coaches for his dependability, but he is an average talent at best who doesn't bring the kind of size rookie Deon Cain has or the speed Chester Rogers brings to the table. Owners have to take notice because Andrew Luck is his quarterback, but Grant is not worth anything more than a late-round dart throw in most leagues.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 8/5/18 7:51am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton fielded punts at practice Sunday, Aug. 5, although head coach Frank Reich said he is unlikely to be used as a punt returner on a full-time basis.
Huddle Up: With Andrew Luck back under center and an offensive-minded head coach, the 28-year-old Hilton should once again be worthy of consideration as a No. 1 receiver. He is looking to bounce back from a 2017 campaign where he had just 57 receptions for 966 yards and four touchdowns.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 8/5/18 6:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is listed as the starter opposite WR T.Y. Hilton on the first depth chart released Saturday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Grant had a career-high 573 receiving yards for Washington last year, and if he can hold on to the No. 2 receiver job for the Colts, he should surpass that total. He's never been a impact fantasy option, but he is at least worth a flier as a WR5.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 8/4/18 10:04am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack has the chance to rush for 1,500 yards this season, in the opinion of owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: Mack likely is the leading candidate for the starting running back job and could receive a solid amount of carries during the season. He may not rush for 1,500 yards like Irsay indicated but could be a No. 3 running back in most standard leagues.
Jordan Wilkins - RBPosted 8/2/18 7:33pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has been coming into his own during training camp, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, and Holder believes Wilkins could force his way into the running back rotation.
Huddle Up: The Colts are heading to a backfield committee, and with the roles up for grabs, Wilkins is at least worth stashing for now.
Nyheim Hines - RBPosted 8/2/18 7:41pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has been lining up in the slot and being sent into motion out of the backfield when he isn't running the ball.
Huddle Up: The Colts are still sorting out their backfield rotation, but Hines has a good chance to see time as a third-down back and as a receiver. He's worth a late-round pick in PPR formats.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 8/1/18 10:47am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton and QB Andrew Luck haven't missed a beat since Luck returned to practice for training camp. 'It's like when you wake up. You brush your teeth, wash your face. It's easy for us, man,' Hilton said.
Huddle Up: Hilton has WR1 upside when Luck is throwing the ball his way. In 2016 Hilton led the NFL with 1,448 yards and he has averaged 81 catches for 1,250 yards and 5.75 touchdowns between 2013 and 2016 with Luck. There should be more of the same under a new offensive-minded coaching staff.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 8/1/18 5:12pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has thrown during five of the first six practices so far during training camp but will have a scheduled day off Thursday, Aug. 2. Luck has gone 85-for-112 during training camp.
Huddle Up: Luck appears to be making solid progress in his recovery and should be ready for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer a setback. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/29/18 7:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) took part in his first padded practice since 2016, completing 12 of his 14 pass attempts in 11-on-11 drills during training camp Sunday, July 29.
Huddle Up: After missing so much time with a shoulder injury, Luck enters 2018 as a high-risk, high-reward QB1 option. You will want to invest in a quality QB2 if you draft Luck to be your starter.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/26/18 12:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) looked sharp during practice Thursday, July 26, according to head coach Frank Reich. Reich said Luck looked strong and consistent during drills.
Huddle Up: Luck appears to be off to a good start and should improve as training camp goes on because he has not practiced in a while. Owners will need to continue to follow the situation to see if Luck suffers any setbacks. He is a No. 1 quarterback when healthy but is a risky option because of the shoulder.
Deon Cain - WRPosted 7/26/18 7:53pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain has shown a knack for making 'chunk plays,' according to head coach Frank Reich, and Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes Cain is going to push for 'serious snaps' this season.
Huddle Up: There continues to be buzz around Cain. He needs to be owned in keeper formats, and he could be worth a late-round flier in redraft leagues.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/25/18 8:41am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has let loose on several throws in practice Wednesday, July 25, and has shown arm strength close to where he was before the injury.
Huddle Up: Luck is a high-end QB1 option in a pool that doesn't have many that stand out without age on injury questions.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/25/18 1:28pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) likely will play in the first preseason game in two weeks, according to head coach Frank Reich. Luck is scheduled to practice Thursday, July 26, and Friday, July 27, before receiving a day off Saturday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Luck is coming back from his shoulder injury and probably will only be in the game for a series or two. It appears like Luck is on track for Week 1 as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy, but owners may want an elite backup if they draft Luck.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 7/25/18 1:32pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack said he played last season with a shoulder injury he suffered last training camp but has recovered from offseason surgery and is ready for camp this season,
Huddle Up: Mack appears to be the leading candidate for the starting running back job and should see a lot of work during the preseason. He posted decent numbers in 2017 despite the injury and has a chance to be a valuable fantasy option if he starts. Owners in most leagues could consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 back.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 7/20/18 11:25am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck will have no limitations with his surgically repaired shoulder and is 'good to go' for training camp, according to general manager Chris Ballard, who added Luck will take occasional days off but is fully healthy.
Huddle Up: So far, so good. While Luck still has to prove he can take a hit to his shoulder or fall on it without incident, it appears as if the Colts and the quarterback feel comfortable finding out where he's at. Although he figures to see very little action during the preseason, Luck can prove he is worth a mid-to-late round investment just by making it through August. Even with the Colts' upgraded offensive line personnel, however, he's a risk-reward QB1 until he proves he can make it through a season.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 7/8/18 12:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton logged 927 snaps last season - the ninth-most offensive plays among receivers in 2017.
Huddle Up: It's not a coincidence Hilton suffered through his worst statistical year since his rookie campaign in 2012 without Andrew Luck. Even without the stud quarterback peppering him with targets, the 28-year-old still uncorked a handful of his patented big games with Jacoby Brissett. Hilton hasn't missed a game in three years and is a prime rebound candidate in 2018 so long as Luck is under center. He's a nice value in the mid-third round of PPR drafts at the moment.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/27/18 10:22am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he plans to work out with the team's receivers before training camp. He said the workouts are part of his offseason plan.
Huddle Up: Luck continues to work his way back from shoulder surgery, but it is a good sign that plans to throw to his receivers. Owners will need to monitor his progress during training camp to see if he suffers any setbacks. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but owners may want a solid backup on the roster.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/27/18 10:50am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he is feeling no pain in his surgically repaired shoulder. He said he will continue with his plan of throwing for a few days then taking a day off until training camp.
Huddle Up: Luck appears to be making progress in his recovery, but his status for the start of the regular season is still in question. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but owners will need a solid backup in case Luck misses time.
Adam Vinatieri - PKPosted 6/19/18 1:27pm ET
Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri said he loves football as much today as he did when he first started playing. The 45-year-old veteran added that he won't be retiring anytime soon as he looks to become the NFL's all-time leading scorer.
Huddle Up: Vinatieri is arguably the greatest kicker in NFL history and holds his own in the fantasy realm, too. He'll have even more value if/when Andrew Luck returns, but for now he can be viewed as a high-end backup fantasy kicker.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 6/18/18 5:39am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) senses differences in how his shoulder reacts to new things this year. 'The pain is gone, and it's going to stay that way,' Luck said to reporters at minicamp. 'My body doesn't revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask.'
Huddle Up: Luck has the chance to be the best quarterback in fantasy, but until we see him in a team setting, he's still a risky high-end choice.
Eric Ebron - TEPosted 6/18/18 10:54am ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron was one of the more impressive players during offseason workouts and could have an impact in the passing game this season, in the opinion of the Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder.
Huddle Up: Ebron likely will have a solid role in the passing game in 2018 even if he is not the starting tight end and could be a target in the red zone. He has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in some leagues.
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.
