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.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/28/18 2:47pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was a trade target for a few teams, but the Colts did not consider any trade offers, according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: Luck missed the entire 2017 season but appears to be on track for the 2018 season. Owners will need to monitor the situation during offseason workouts and training camp to see if he suffers any setbacks. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy.
Marlon Mack - RBPosted 4/28/18 7:01pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not the clear starter, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'I'm fine with running back by committee,' Reich said.
Huddle Up: Mack should still be considered the frontrunner to start, but he could share touches with Nyheim Hines and others. Mack looks like a RB3 candidate at this point.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 4/25/18 8:46am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is participating in every part of minicamp except throwing, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Luck is a wild card in fantasy this year. He could wind up being a top-three option, but his health continues to a pressing issue.
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.
