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.
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.
