  Colts | Jack Doyle could have bigger role    Wed Feb 3, 05:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle may see an increase in usage in 2016 and could assume the backup tight end position if one of impending free-agent TEs Coby Fleener or Dwayne Allen don't re-sign.

Footballguys view: We have a feeling that Allen could move on in free agency (Steelers?) for a larger role. Fleener has a connection with QB Andrew Luck dating back to their college days together at Stanford. Doyle may see an increase in playing time, but we're not super excited by his fantasy potential if he's still a backup behind Fleener.

Indianaplis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri could be re-signed by the Colts this offseason. Owner Jim Irsay said they would like to retain Vinatieri, and he is hoping to get that done.

Footballguys view: We don't see this as being a problem. It's good for both sides to stay together if the dollars work out.

  Colts | Good chance for new Andrew Luck deal?    Tue Feb 2, 06:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is healthy and there's a good chance he'll receive a new deal this offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay. Irsay said there's a good chance the Colts and Luck can get a long-term deal done this offseason. There haven't been any major negotiations yet, but Irsay said that's going to be happening as March approaches.

Footballguys view: In the near future, Luck will be the highest paid player in the NFL. So long as he's healthy, the Colts can make a run at the division title and playoffs. He's a franchise quarterback and the future face of the NFL.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to be extended?    Mon Feb 1, 04:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could receive a contract extension this offseason. The Colts have as much confidence in him now as they ever have.

Footballguys view: That wouldn't be a surprise. Luck is headed into the final year of his rookie deal, and any new contract should make him the league's highest-paid player.

  Colts | Coby Fleener looking at free agency     Wed Jan 27, 04:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Coby Fleener will be entering free agency as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Footballguys view: Fleener has scored 17 touchdowns in his four-year career. He's been splitting time with Dwayne Allen, and now he may want to move on for a chance to be 'the man' for a different team. The Colts may want to bring Fleener back if the price is right.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen wants to return    Tue Jan 12, 12:20 AM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen said Monday, Jan. 11, that he is hopeful of returning to the team for 2016 and beyond. 'I plan on being back. I hope everything is wrapped up before the period even starts,' Allen said. 'I found my home and hope to stay.'

Footballguys view: Both Allen and Coby Fleener are set to be free agents in 2016. While there's a chance Allen could come back, we think the odds are better that Fleener stays and Allen goes. If healthy, Allen can produce at a high level. However, injuries and inconsistencies have held back his game.

  Colts | Andrew Luck could ink extension    Sat Jan 9, 06:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could sign a contract extension this offseason as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. 'If we don't get an agreement,' owner Jim Irsay said, 'we still have time. And he is going to be signed. There's a reasonably good chance we can come to that agreement this offseason. He will be here, trust me. Andrew and I have talked - we talked after the end of the season - and he couldn't be more excited.'

Footballguys view: There's no need for any delay. If the two sides can come close to an agreement, then they need to make it happen.

  Colts | Greg Manusky fired    Tue Jan 5, 05:06 PM

Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky was fired Tuesday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: The Colts kept head coach Chuck Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson, but changes had to be made. Manusky didn't bring a consistently effective defense to the field, but it wasn't all his fault. The Colts generally have a lack of talent on that side of the ball.

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener caught seven passes for 88 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown, in a 30-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

  Colts | Frank Gore rushes for 76 yards    Sun Jan 3, 05:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore had 19 carries for 76 yards and no touchdowns in a 30-24 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Gore was stronger than his numbers at the beginning of the year and as weak as his numbers late in the year, although he finished with a kick. Gore was dragged down by the Colts offense but mostly defied his age this year. Next year it will be harder to project him to do that.

  Colts | Josh Freeman to face Tennessee    Sun Jan 3, 10:09 AM

  Colts | Frank Gore has chance at 1,000 yards    Sat Jan 2, 08:52 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore needs 109 yards in the Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans to become the first Colts running back since 2007 to record 1,000 yards in a season. Gore's season high in rushing yards is 98 yards.

Footballguys view: There may not be much to like about the Colts this week, but we think they'll pound the rock time and time again with Gore in Week 17. DFS players need to consider Gore as a cheaper RB option. Season-long owners can look to Gore as a RB1 in Week 17 championships.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is not expected to be retained for the 2016 season barring a playoff berth.

Footballguys view: Always great to find this BEFORE the last game. Does wonders for morale. With Andrew Luck the centerpiece of the offense, this should be a sought after job, though some of owner Jim Irsay's actions and Luck's issues have dulled the shine a tad.
