2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Indianapolis Colts
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Colts are the cream of the crop in their division, so another spot in the playoffs seems likely. This is a team on the rise. The big issue remains the defense, though. Can it do enough to make a run in the playoffs? We aren't so sure. The defense still has some holes and will allow some big games, making for some high-scoring games for the Colts. The offense will once again carry this team and should be one of the best in the league. Indy still seems a few players away from making a Super Bowl run.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Quarterback Andrew Luck still hasn't had that huge season but this looks like the year for Luck to post big numbers. He is another year older and has even more weapons to work with offensively (Hakeem Nicks). The Colts still don't have a great rushing attack, which is another good thing for Luck. This team is going to throw the ball a lot and Luck will benefit from this. We think he has a shot to be a top-five fantasy quarterback. Luck is ready to take his game to a new level.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Reggie Wayne is returning from his first major injury (torn ACL) and turns 36 during the season this year. You have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. Wayne should see a dip production and likely won't near his huge numbers of past seasons. Don't draft him based on what he has done in the past. Wayne isn't that player anymore. He still might have a few big games in this offense but expect inconsistent production and a downturn in stats.

Team Notes

Jul 30, 02:13 AM LB Darrin Kitchens (Bills), OT Chris Faulk (Browns), PK Jake Rogers (Browns), OT Aslam Sterling (Broncos), RB Chris Rainey (Colts), WR Gerald Ford (Dolphins), OT DeMarcus Love (Giants) and RB Brendan Bigelow (Buccaneers) all cleared waivers Tuesday, July 29. Each player is free to sign with any team.
Jul 29, 03:33 PM The Indianapolis Colts signed RB Phillip Tanner (Cowboys) Tuesday, July 29. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Jul 29, 01:23 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been consistent so far in camp, and he's not showing any limitations with his neck, which caused him to miss the final 13 games of last season. 'He looks fantastic,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'He has found the groove to make it. We know how tough Ahmad is. We know how he's wired, so I'm not going to be pulling back on the reins. He's one of those guys we have to protect them from themselves. It will take care of itself. He's not one of those guys that will think about what he went through.'

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw has a chance to play a role in the offense as long as he is healthy.
Jul 28, 09:52 AM Updating an earlier report, the Indianapolis Colts released RB Chris Rainey for a violation of team rules.
Jul 28, 08:52 AM The Indianapolis Colts released RB Chris Rainey.
Jul 27, 09:02 AM The Indianapolis Colts re-signed RB Davin Meggett (Redskins) Sunday, July 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Jul 27, 01:02 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 26, because of a soft tissue issue, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said the team is being careful with Richardson and want him to be 100 percent before he returns to the field.
Jul 26, 07:32 PM Free-agent RB William Powell (Eagles), RB Orwin Smith (Packers) and Phillip Tanner (Cowboys) worked out for the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, July 26.
Jul 25, 07:12 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Impact: He is done for the year. Ballard just can't stay healthy in recent seasons.
Jul 25, 03:32 PM Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (knee) is being held out of practice Friday, July 25, as a precaution. It is believed the issue is knee related.
Jul 25, 03:02 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Friday, July 25.
Jul 24, 02:52 PM Indianapolis Colts CB Vontae Davis (undisclosed) and FS LaRon Landry (undisclosed) both did not participate in practice Thursday, July 24.
Jul 24, 08:33 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) has been cleared to practice. Bradshaw is an RB4, but he could be worth more if Trent Richardson fails to produce again.
Jul 24, 08:33 AM Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) and OG Donald Thomas (quadriceps, biceps) have been cleared to practice.
Jul 23, 06:13 PM Indianapolis Colts FB Stanley Havili (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.
Jul 23, 11:13 AM Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) said he has been medically cleared to practice. He's expected to be limited, though, especially in the near future.
