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.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/30/17 11:50am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he believes that he will be ready for the start of offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Luck's situation during the offseason to see if he will need another surgery on his shoulder. Luck is a solid No. 1 quarterback when he is healthy but may be a risky option for owners next season if he is still dealing with the injury.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/29/17 10:51am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) doesn't believe he will require another surgery and will begin to throw again in the near future, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: It should be interesting to see whether or not the Colts decide to keep Jacoby Brissett around as insurance for Luck, but there is no question Indianapolis missed its former No. 1 overall pick in 2017. Assuming he avoids any setbacks this spring and summer, Luck should be considered a top-eight fantasy quarterback option once again next season.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/29/17 2:23pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Gore has been a decent option for fantasy owners this season and can be a flex option in standard leagues this week against the Houston Texans.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/29/17 2:17pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Moncrief may be a game-time decision in Week 17, so owners can check the inactive list for his status. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and can be avoided in most leagues.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/28/17 1:45pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Gore has been receiving practices off throughout the season and will be fine for Week 17. He has posted consistent numbers so far this season and could be a flex option for owners in standard leagues.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/28/17 1:57pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has not played since early December and his status for Week 17 is uncertain at this point. He has posted at least 50 yards in only three of his 12 games this season and probably should be avoided by owners.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/27/17 1:17pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Moncrief will be able to play in the regular season finale against Houston, but it is clear that he has fantasy appeal only in the deepest formats. He has just 26 grabs for 391 yards and two scores this season. It has been a lost year for Moncrief, who has one or no catches across four of his five outings.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/26/17 6:36am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore has a good matchup against the Houston Texans in Week 17 as the Texans have allowed the most points to the position over the last five weeks.
Huddle Up: Gore had 68 yards on 17 carries and two catches for 18 yards and a score in Week 16. He has just four touchdowns on the season, though, and that will limit his upside. He's a low-end RB2 for the finale.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/26/17 3:50pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore must rush for 139 yards in Week 17 to reach 1,000 rushing yards on the season. If he does reach 1,000 yards it will be the tenth time in his career he has reached the 1,000-yard mark in his career.
Huddle Up: Gore is an iron man. While his production has decreased as he has aged, he has not missed a game since 2011. As incredible as his longevity has been, the fact that he will be 35 years old next season makes him a risky draftee in what will be his 14th season.
Adam Vinatieri - PKPosted 12/24/17 5:22am ET
Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri said he plans to return for the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Vinatieri, who turns 45 this week, is 27-for-32 on field goal attempts this season and 20-for-22 on extra points. He will be a free agent after this season but should continue to be a viable kicking option in all fantasy formats regardless of where he lands.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 12/23/17 4:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for 17 yards on four carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 37 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Mack has received a limited amount of touches during games this season and has not been a big factor for fantasy owners. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues next week against the Houston Texans.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/23/17 4:36pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed for 68 yards on 17 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 18 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Gore has been pretty consistent in terms of his rushing yards this season but has been involved in the passing game over the last few weeks. He be considered a flex option in deeper leagues next week.
Jacoby Brissett - QBPosted 12/23/17 4:35pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett went 16-for-33 for 215 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Brissett has been held to under 200 yards in four of the last five games but has played well at times since taking over as the starting quarterback. He will be facing the Houston Texans in Week 17 but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Jack Doyle - TEPosted 12/23/17 4:46pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle caught five passes for 41 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Doyle has been targeted 18 times over the last two games and has posted 12 catches and 88 yards during that span. He should continue to be a big part of the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 12/23/17 4:43pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton caught six passes for 100 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Hilton bounced back after a few disappointing games and posted his fourth 100-yard game of the season. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners in Week 17.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 12/20/17 2:46pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) was given his usual day off of practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Gore needs to average just over 103 rushing yards in the Colts' final two games in order to reach the 1,000-yard rushing plateau. He's only eclipsed 100 yards in a game once this year, so don't count on him to reach that feat. That said, he's a desperation flex in fantasy title games.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/17/17 9:02am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's (shoulder) rehab is going well, but he is scheduled to throw soon to see if there is still pain in his surgically-repaired shoulder when he throws, according to sources. He could undergo a corrective surgery in January if he does continue to feel pain but is optimistic that he will avoid surgery. He would be sidelined three to six months if he has another surgery.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the offseason to see if Luck will be ready for the 2018 season. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy but be a risky option in drafts next season.
