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.
