Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/27/15 1:28pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voided the guarantee of a $3,184,062 salary in 2015.
Huddle Up: Sounds like the perfect out for Indy with the deeply disappointing Richardson having averaged only 3.1 yards per carry in 20 games with the team.
Matt Hasselbeck - QBPosted 1/23/15 7:49pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.
Huddle Up: Hasselbeck, who has served as Andrew Luck's backup for the last two seasons but hasn't started a game since 2012 with the Titans, will turn 40 in September and it certainly looks like it may be the end of the line for the veteran.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/21/15 12:44pm ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: Lots of talk regarding Richardson's situation, none of it regarding his on-field performance--because there was none. Richardson missed practices, was reportedly dealing with a family situation, and was also suspended? Despite the cap hit and invested first-round pick there just doesn't seem to be any way Richardson returns to the Colts next season.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 1/20/15 3:29pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has shed the cast on his leg and was in walking boot Tuesday, Jan. 20. He hopes to begin working out soon and is interested in re-signing with the team in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw was clearly the Colts' best back, rolling up 725 yards from scrimmage and scoring 8 TDs in 10 games before getting injured, and is a good bet to return to Indy given the team's lack of RB talent with Trent Richardson's flame-out.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 1/20/15 10:19pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) is unsure if he will be returning for another season. Wayne was targeted just twice in the loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 18, and he didn't have any catches. Wayne said he plans to have surgery to fix a torn triceps this offseason. He will become a free agent this offseason, as well.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who turned 36 in November, caught 64 passes this past season but averaged a career low-matching 12.2 yards per reception and will likely not be in a rush to make any decisions on his future given the looming surgery.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/18/15 1:40pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship Game.
Huddle Up: Richardson didn't get a touch in the wild-card win over the Bengals, was inactive during the divisional round and his disastrous run in Indy appears to be over.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/18/15 1:54pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has been working with the team on a contract extension that could be the richest contract in the NFL, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This shouldn't be news to even the most causal of NFL followers.
Hakeem Nicks - WRPosted 1/16/15 4:47pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks figures to play a key role in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18, especially if the Patriots use CB Darrelle Revis to try to shut down WR T.Y. Hilton. Nicks has been showing more explosiveness in the offense in limited snaps of late. WR Reggie Wayne has just three of QB Andrew Luck's 77 postseason targets.
Huddle Up: Although Nicks caught a TD pass in the divisional-round win over the Broncos and certainly looks to be a better fantasy option than the fast-fading Wayne, he only has five targets himself in two playoff games so far.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 1/16/15 10:30pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not practice Friday, Jan. 16, but he officially isn't listed on the team's injury report for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: The veteran wideout will be out there Sunday, but he hasn't exactly been lighting up the stat sheet of late and was held without a catch in the divisional-round win over the Broncos for the first time all season.
Dan Herron - RBPosted 1/16/15 11:00pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.
Huddle Up: Herron has 236 total yards, including 119 rushing and a pair of scores, on 53 touches in Indy's two playoff games so far, and he figures to see plenty of work Sunday as the Colts' only reliable back facing a Patriot D which ranked eighth against the run (104.3 yards per game) during the regular season.
Vontae Davis - CBPosted 1/15/15 2:53pm ET
Indianapolis Colts CB Vontae Davis (knee) and CB Greg Toler (groin) are expected to play in the AFC Championship game, according to defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.
Huddle Up: If either does not or are significantly less than 100 percent, the pendulum swings even more heavily toward the Patriots as the CBs are the clear strength of the Indy defense.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/11/15 4:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has been ruled inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It seems the Colts have finally given up on their 2013 prize trade acquisition, who's struggled to keep his yards-per-carry average above 3.0 -- let alone make any sort of impact. Meanwhile, RB Michael Hill, a street free agent signed Tuesday, is active for the game and will back up Daniel Herron and Zurlon Tipton.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 1/9/15 4:50pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 9, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: The veteran WR certainly hasn't finished the season with a flourish, averaging 2.6 receptions and 28 yards over his last 7 games -- including his 1-12 showing in last weekend's wild-card win -- without catching a TD pass. Now, sure, he could break out Sunday as a by-product of the sheer volume of the Colts' passing game -- but he's clearly fallen far down the pass-catching pecking order in Indy. Stay far away unless you feel the urge to take a huge gamble.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/8/15 4:24pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's role is unclear leading up to the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11, after he was demoted to third on the depth chart behind RBs Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the team's wild-card playoff win. Richardson only played on one offensive snap last weekend. "We're going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we'll know more as we go through the week," head coach Chuck Pagano said.
Huddle Up: While Richardson got regular touches throughout the season despite his less-than-impressive performances, it looks like the Colts have finally soured on the former No. 3 overall pick. Stay far away, no matter how cheap his DFS salary figure may be.
Dan Herron - RBPosted 1/7/15 12:41am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron will return to a starting role against the Denver Broncos in the divisional round game Sunday, Jan. 11, after fumbling twice in the team's wild-card playoff win last weekend. Herron was pulled from the game in favor of RB Zurlon Tipton after fumbling the second time, but he returned to the game later.
Huddle Up: Herron finished with 56 yards and a TD on 12 carries and also added 85 yards on a career-high 10 receptions while Trent Richardson sat out. The rookie should again see plenty of work Sunday provided he can hold on to the ball.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 1/7/15 3:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been targeted the third most times (53) in the last three years in the playoffs, but his six drops are a league high in the playoffs in that span. Hilton dropped three passes last week in the wild-card playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals while still managing to catch six passes for 103 yards.
Huddle Up: The drops are a concern for Hilton, but it didn't prevent Andrew Luck from going back to him in the wild card game last week. And considering Hilton's big-play potential when he does hang on to the ball, it doesn't project to be an issue going forward.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/4/15 5:32pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) was active for the wild-card playoff game but was held out of the game. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he expects Richardson to play in the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Richardson missed only his second game in two years with the Colts, while rookies Dan Herron (12-56-1) and Zurlon Tipton (11-40) shouldered the load against the Bengals. Herron also led the team with 10 recdeptions for 85 yards and remains the only Indy back you want.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 1/3/15 12:48am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) is listed as questionable for the team's wild-card playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Jan. 4, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Richardson missed practice Friday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Richardson should be fine by Sunday but rookie Dan Herron will get the majority of the RB work Sunday against Cincy as usual.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 1/3/15 1:07am ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 2, and is listed as probable for the wild-card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Allen, who tied for the team lead with eight TD receptions this season despite not catching a pass in five of Indy's final seven games, will be out there Sunday after practicing all week.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 1/3/15 1:07am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 2, but is listed as probable for the wild-card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The veteran Wayne, who did practice in full Thursday, will play Sunday according to various media reports, but certainly check his status before kickoff to be sure.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 1/2/15 12:42am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne said Wednesday, Dec. 31, that he expects to be back with the team next season.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who turned 36 in November, had one of his least-productive full seasons with 64 receptions for 779 yards and 2 TDs. Regardless, he's one of the team's most respected veteran leaders, but if he does come back, he'll likely take even more of a backseat to young Indy WRs T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief next season.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 1/2/15 3:42pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and the passing game is expected to be leaned on even more in the team's Wild Card game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Jan. 4, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. 'Our emphasis is to just try and score every time we touch the football,' Hamilton said. 'If that's (by) running the football, that's great. Ideally we want to have balance in our offense. But at this point, we have to accentuate our strengths and do what we do best and find ways to score.' Indianapolis led the league in passing this year with a league-high 4,894 passing yards (306 per game). Luck led the NFL with 40 touchdown passes. The Colts rank 22nd in rushing yards per game this year (100.8) and 25th in yards per carry (3.9).
Huddle Up: The Colts' strength certainly is most definitely Luck and the passing game, but the QB struggled down the stretch, failing to throw for 200 yards in each of the final three regular-season games and tossing six TDs and five interceptions over the final four weeks. The Bengals, meanwhile, ranked as top-five defense against opposing fantasy QBs this season, but Luck did throw for 344 yards and two scores back in their Week 7 meeting in Indy.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 1/1/15 3:31pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Allen caught only 3 passes for 21 yards and a TD over the final seven games of the regular season and his return would be a boost for Andrew Luck and the offense but would certainly cut into Coby Fleener's numbers. He seems on track to play Sunday, but see what his practice participation looks like the rest of the week.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 12/26/14 4:45pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) has been ruled out for the team's Week 17 game. Allen did not practice Friday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: No surprise here -- especially with the Colts having little to play for in the finale. In the meantime, Coby Fleener's fantasy stock deserves a big bump in Allen's absence.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 12/24/14 6:12pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Definitely keep an eye on Allen if you've been using him as the Colts might err on the side of caution and hold him out in Week 17 even if he could play given the finale against the Titans doesn't hold much significance.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 12/23/14 4:10pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is expected to play in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans. Despite the fact the team has nothing much to gain in the regular season finale, the team is generally speaking about playing to win against the Titans, as they look to build some steam heading into the postseason.
Huddle Up: Luck has been brutal with 296 total passing yards and two TDs over the last two games, but you're likely still starting him if he's playing in Week 17.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 12/23/14 4:13pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is taking part in practice Tuesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Good sign that Hilton was able to get on the field after not practicing all week, and see if the progress continues the rest of the week.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 12/22/14 8:06pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 17, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Not having Hilton in Week 16 was a big loss for fantasy owners, but see if he'll be ready to go in this Sunday's regular-season finale.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 12/19/14 3:46pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, Dec. 19, and RTV6's Mike Chappell is convinced that Hilton will not play in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Hilton's prospects certainly appear dim after he was unable to do anything Friday, and if it comes down to a game-time decision, it'll be a late-afternoon announcement at that. Hakeem Nicks and rookie Donte Moncrief should both see a sizable uptick in looks should Hilton be sidelined.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 12/19/14 6:37pm ET
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, but is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Sounds like nothing more than a late-season veteran maintenance day for Wayne, and he could be in line for more work than usual Sunday with fellow wideout T.Y. Hilton a major question mark.
