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

Jan 27, 10:43 AM 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.

Fantasy Impact: This is a good way to dump Richardson for the coming season, which is likely to happen.
Jan 23, 04:42 PM Indianapolis Colts impending restricted free-agent C A.Q. Shipley is not expected to re-sign with the Colts this offseason.
Jan 23, 04:42 PM Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.
Jan 23, 04:42 PM Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Cory Redding is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.
Jan 23, 04:42 PM Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Fili Moala is not expected to re-sign with the team this offseason.
Jan 21, 09:13 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Impact: Not good. You have to think his time in Indy is over.
Jan 20, 10:13 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) has shed the cast on his leg and is 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.
Jan 20, 10:13 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.
Jan 19, 07:03 PM 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 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.
Jan 19, 05:43 PM The Indianapolis Colts signed WR Kadron Boone, DE Gannon Conway, LB Carlos Fields, DB Winston Guy, OT Tyler Hoover, WR Ryan Lankford, WR Josh Lenz, DT Kelcy Quarles and TE Erik Swoope to Reserve/Futures deals Monday, Jan. 19.
Jan 19, 01:33 PM Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton was shut down by New England Patriots CB Kyle Arrington in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 18. Hilton had only one catch in the game.
Jan 18, 09:42 PM Indianapolis Colts LB Andy Studebaker (chest) was punished on a block while playing on special teams in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18, against the New England Patriots. He was coughing up blood, and was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. He is officially listed as questionable to return.
Jan 18, 08:12 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Zurlon Tipton posted a rushing touchdown late in the second quarter of the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18.
Jan 18, 01:02 PM 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.
Jan 18, 08:22 AM Indianapolis Colts CBs Vontae Davis (knee) and Greg Toler (groin) will play in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18.
Jan 17, 03:12 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Impact: Ouch. Richardson has plummeted down the depth chart for the Colts.
