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

Oct 24, 02:02 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the chances aren't looking good that he plays.
Oct 24, 01:52 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Oct 24, 01:02 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Oct 23, 03:32 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a good sign for Richardson, who is looking iffy to play right now. Get other options ready.
Oct 23, 03:32 PM Indianapolis Colts LB Erik Walden (rest) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23. TE Jack Doyle (knee) was limited during practice, while CB Darius Butler (ankle), OT Gosder Cherilus (rest) and DT Arthur Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice.
Oct 23, 02:22 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is ahead of schedule in terms of his knowledge of the offense, and the team believes he will perform when he is on the field, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

Fantasy Impact: He could get on the field sooner than later with Reggie Wayne hurting. He probably isn't worth grabbing for fantasy teams just yet, though.
Oct 23, 12:12 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Impact: Wayne is expected to miss the game this week.
Oct 23, 12:53 AM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he expects to play in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured in the second half of the Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and could have returned. However, he was held out because the game had already been decided.
Oct 22, 04:33 PM Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Impact: Wayne is expected to miss the game this week.
Oct 22, 04:33 PM Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) and OT Gosder Cherilus (rest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. CB Darius Butler (ankle) was limited during practice, while DT Arthur Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice.
Oct 22, 04:23 PM Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Impact: Most believe Richardson will be ready for the game this week but nothing is 100 percent certain right now.
Oct 22, 09:54 AM The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agents RB Jeff Demps (Buccaneers) and Konrad Reuland (Jets) to their practice squad and released QB Dominique Davis and WR Chandler X. Jones from the practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Oct 22, 03:03 AM In their bye week, the New York Giants are working out several free agents. In addition to QB Terrelle Pryor, who was previously mentioned, other free agents include TE Tony Moeaki (Chiefs), RB Felix Jones (Steelers), RB Alex Green (Jets), WR Jonathan Baldwin (Chiefs), RB Dion Lewis (Browns), TE Ted Bolser (Redskins), PK Travis Coons (Titans), OL Jack Cornell (Raiders), P Jake Dombrowski (Harvard), PK Nate Freese (Lions), P Robert Malone (Redskins), G Antoine McClain (Saints), TE T.J. Williams (Packers) and LS Tyler Ott (Patriots).
Oct 21, 10:23 PM Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen said he was not expecting to be as involved in the red zone as he has been this season. He has five touchdowns in seven games, and three of those scores have come on plays in the red zone.

Fantasy Impact: Allen is having a fine season and we think the best is yet to come. He can be a big-time factor in this offense.
Oct 21, 06:23 PM Indianapolis Colts QB Dominique Davis and WR Chandler X. Jones were released Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Oct 21, 12:53 PM Indianapolis Colts LB Jerrell Freeman (hip) is undergoing an MRI exam. However, head coach Chuck Pagano is optimistic that Freeman is 'going to be OK.'
