Trent Richardson - RBPosted 3/25/15 10:58am ET
Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Tuesday, March 24, that he expects RB Latavius Murray and RB Trent Richardson to compete for the starting tailback job. 'I think it will be a competitive situation,' Del Rio said.
Huddle Up: Good news for Murray and his fantasy owners, as what we've seen from Richardson lately suggests he won't be much competition at all.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 3/24/15 2:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck likely will not be a candidate for a contract extension until next offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: Fantasy's top QB is doing just fine on and off the field for now, and Irsay and the Colts can use to extra time to plan how they want to structure their pending mega-deal.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 3/18/15 12:04am ET
Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson will be competing with RB Latavius Murray for the starting running back position this offseason.
Huddle Up: The inexperienced Murray has made only three starts and has only 82 career carries, but Richardson is going to have to pull off a dramatic career U-turn to have a shot after averaging all of 3.1 yards per attempt on his 316 rushes in Indy over the last two seasons.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 3/17/15 2:30pm ET
Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Colts) signed with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, March 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Silver & Black will try to salvage Richardson's career -- still at age 24 -- which took a well-documented disastrous turn during his two seasons in Indy. It also marks a complete overhaul in the Raiders' backfield as Latavius Murray, Roy Helu and now Richardson have replaced Darren McFadden and the retired Maurice Jones-Drew.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 3/12/15 8:08pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was released Thursday, March 12.
Huddle Up: As has long been expected following his disastrous two-year run in Indy. Frank Gore, Dan Herron and Vick Ballard are expected to head the Colts' ground game if they don't re-sign free-agent Ahmad Bradshaw.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 3/11/15 8:55pm ET
Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) could be a target of the San Diego Chargers after they lost out on Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson in free agency. Chargers general manager Tom Telesco was a former front office executive with the Colts.
Huddle Up: The difference between Wayne and Johnson is that AJ still has something left in the tank. Wayne might provide Philip Rivers with a veteran presence, but his days as an elite fantasy wideout are in the rear-view mirror.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 3/6/15 12:48pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne will not be re-signed for 2015, the team announced Friday, March 6.
Huddle Up: This marks the end of Wayne's brilliant run in Indy where he he compiled the seventh-most receptions (1,070) and eighth-most receiving yards (14,345) in league history. The 36-year-old WR successfully returned from his 2013 ACL injury but suffered a midseason elbow injury/torn trcieps last season and clearly struggled down the stretch, finishing with with 64 receptions for 779 yards and two TDs and failing to catch a pass in either of the Colts' two playoff games. Wayne hasn't officially said yet if its the end of his NFL career, but it sure seems like it at this point.
Dan Herron - RBPosted 3/5/15 10:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent Thursday, March 5.
Huddle Up: Herron, a sixth-round pick of the Bengals in 2012, served as Indy's No. 1 RB late in the season and in the playoffs and figures to remain part of the team's RB rotation even if it adds a veteran free agent or spend a draft pick on the position in a couple of months.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 2/27/15 8:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) recently underwent surgery on his triceps and has started his rehab. Wayne still has not decided if he will play in 2015.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who will be 37 in November, figures to be welcomed back as a reserve WR and veteran presence in Indy if he chooses to play another season, but it's certainly a wait-and-see proposition for the time being.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 2/26/15 1:54am ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw's pretrial conference has been rescheduled to April 8 as authorities await crime lab results. Bradshaw pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge for allegedly possessing marijuana when he was pulled over on an Ohio interstate earlier this month.
Huddle Up: The league has demonstrated it doesn't necessarily need a legal conviction to suspend a player, though that's how they've tended to play out cases involving drug possession and such. So Bradford might have a two-game suspension hanging over his head if he signs with a new team this offseason.
Matt Hasselbeck - QBPosted 2/26/15 10:09pm ET
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck was re-signed to a one-year deal Thursday, Feb. 26. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hasselbeck will turn 40 in September but he evidently has the confidence of the Colts as he's slated to back up Andrew Luck for the third straight season. It's a good gig, though, as Hasselbeck has only had to attempt 56 passes over the last two seasons.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 2/19/15 4:53pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton could receive a contract extension this offseason.
Huddle Up: Over the last two seasons, Hilton ranks 13th among league WRs in receptions (164) and ninth in yards (2,428) and has clearly become Andrew Luck's most productive target in a pass-catching corps short on sure things -- so an extension would seem to be a matter of "when" and not "if."
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 2/18/15 12:21am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson missed the team's walkthrough and flight for the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots. He was suspended two games without pay for not contacting the team prior to his absence. However, sources said his absence was due to serious complications with his girlfriend's pregnancy that could potentially have endangered the life of the child. Richardson rushed her to the hospital Jan. 17, the same day the team left for New England.
Huddle Up: It's only the start of what's sure to be a contentious offseason between T-Rich and Indy, and many see it ending with the two parties parting ways.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 2/18/15 9:25am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton changed agents recently, as he rehired Drew Rosenhaus after dismissing him back in June.
Huddle Up: If Rosenhaus is in the house, it must be approaching big-money time for Hilton.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 2/17/15 4:17pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has pleaded not guilty to a marijuana possession charge in western Ohio.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw, who rolled up 725 total yards and eight TDs in 10 games before suffering a fractured fibula, is an unrestricted free agent who's a good fit for the RB-needy Colts with his lengthy injury history being the main potential stumbling block.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 2/14/15 12:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw, who can file for free agency and sign with another team next month, was cited in Dayton, Ohio for marijuana possession and following too close to another vehicle.
Huddle Up: Looks like Bradshaw might enter free agency with a potential two-game suspension hanging over his head, in addition to his other baggage like an extensive injury history. That's likely to knock a few bucks off his contract.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 2/10/15 11:58pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson needs to be more decisive when he runs, according to New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount. Blount said Richardson needs to find the creases his offensive line gives him and use his size to his advantage.
Huddle Up: Blount's critique is nothing Richardson hasn't heard since the middle of last season, but the former No. 3 overall draft pick simply seems unable to make any adjustments to his game and it appears it will cost him a roster spot in Indy.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 2/9/15 2:56pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson developed a rocky relationship with the team last year, and the tension built up over the season because of weight issues, accessibility and an absence, according to multiple sources. Richardson was suspended two games for missing a walk-through. Richardson started the year at 225 pounds, but he ballooned up to 240 pounds later in the year, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Richardson wasn't particularly productive in addition to running afoul of team officials, and it's quite likely the team will find a way to move on from him in the offseason.
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.
