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

May 24, 08:32 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett has impressed QB Andrew Luck with his ability to quickly learn the offensive scheme. 'It's definitely not too big for him,' Luck said. 'He fits in very, very well.'
May 23, 03:22 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson will play a significant part in the Colts' offense this season, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.
May 21, 09:12 AM Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson has made a 'pretty seamless' transition to the offense, and he has a strong grasp of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Johnson took snaps with the starters during organized team activities Wednesday, May 20.
May 21, 08:52 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was made a 'pretty seamless' transition to the Colts' offense and is displaying strong knowledge of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
May 13, 08:33 PM Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is missing the first four weeks of the Colts' offseason program as part of his plan to play as many as 20 games in 2015. "The high ankle sprain (from 2014) lingered a little longer then I wanted it to. I talked to (Coach Pagano) about it and there was an understanding. I've been out here for two months, just grinding, getting my body in good shape so that I can go out and the team can depend on me. Getting late in the year (2014), I had a banged up knee and a banged up ankle. They didn't feel, I didn't feel, that they could depend on me and that was frustrating because I feel as if, in every situation throughout the season, they can count me," Allen said. Allen expects to rejoin the team Monday, May 18, for the beginning of organized team activities.
May 11, 12:52 PM Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) pleaded no contest and paid a fine to settle a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession in Ohio. He paid $351 in fines under the plea agreement, and his Ohio driving privileges were suspended for six months. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league will review Bradshaw's case 'under our policies.'
May 04, 10:52 AM Indianapolis Colts WR Kadron Boone, DE Gannon Conway, RB Jeff Demps and OT Matt Hall were waived Monday, May 4.
Apr 27, 10:02 AM Indianapolis Colts LB Jerrell Freeman signed his restricted free-agent tender Monday, April 27.
Apr 22, 02:13 PM Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said he will become a leader on the team since free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) will not return. 'I'm the captain of the room. Right now, I gotta make sure everybody's on point, make sure we're on point with Andrew (Luck). For me, whatever (Wayne) taught me, make sure I'm teaching everybody else, because it's only right. Marvin did it with him. He did it for me. Now, I gotta pass on the torch,' Hilton said.
Apr 20, 03:02 PM Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen's contract talks will not begin until after the season. He has been given permission to train with his own trainer this offseason.
Apr 18, 12:22 AM Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson said he plans on participating in an offseason program that begins Monday, April 20. 'I'm excited about it,' Johnson said. 'I'll actually be heading to Indy tomorrow. I'm excited about the opportunity. Can't wait to get it going. It'll be different, but at the same time, still football. I'll go in, just learn what I need to learn, learn my new teammates and try to fit in and help win games.'
Apr 15, 01:03 PM Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) has not received interest from the Miami Dolphins at this point.
Apr 14, 01:43 AM Indianapolis Colts OT Anthony Castonzo is slated to play under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. The team sees him as their long-term left tackle, although according to sources there is no long-term deal imminent at this time.
Apr 14, 01:43 AM Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton recently fired his agent and re-hired Drew Rosenhaus, a move believed to precede a contract negotiation. He has outperformed his third-round rookie deal, and likely wants a new deal. The two sides have had negotiations, but it is unclear if the talks have moved forward.
Apr 14, 01:43 AM Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener is entering the final season of his rookie deal, and he is scheduled to become a free agent in spring 2016. He has established himself as one of the most criticial components of the Indy passing offense.
Apr 14, 01:43 AM Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen has struggled to stay healthy in the early part of his career, so it is likely he needs to improve his durability before the team offers him a contract extension.
