  Colts | Andrew Luck signs extension    Wed Jun 29, 03:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck signed a five-year extension through 2021 Wednesday, June 29.

Footballguys view: The Colts know that Luck can be the best QB in the league, and it's no surprise they would lock him up at this point. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Luck's five-year extension is actually a six-year deal. It is worth a little more than $139 million in total, which is a new NFL record. It also comes with $87 million in guaranteed money, also an all-time record. With new contract in hand, Luck should be in for a high-end QB1 season for fantasy owners.

  Colts | Head coach praises Josh Ferguson     Mon Jun 20, 05:57 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson is a man of many talents, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. 'He's smart. He picks things up in a hurry. He's very, very athletic,' Pagano said. 'He's a great receiver out of the backfield. We can split him wide, we can displace him formationally. He's a mismatch out in space. He's got juice. He can go. He's got great vision.'

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a lightning quick rusher who can work well as a receiver out of the backfield. The rookie from Illinois could work his way up the depth chart behind starter Frank Gore. Make sure to add Ferguson--or at least monitor him--in deep dynasty leagues.

  Colts | WR Donte Moncrief should be a 'full go' by training camp    Sun Jun 19, 06:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is expected to be a 'full go' by the start of training camp according to Colts.com writer Kevin Bowen.

Footballguys view: Only a couple of days ago we learned that Moncrief was back to running routes as he continues to recover from toe surgery. With QB Andrew Luck back and healthy, we're super excited about the Colts' passing game. Barring injury, Moncrief could have better numbers this season. We could see him eclipse 100 targets again and have 70 or more catches. His current ADP is WR35 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Frank Gore wants 1,000 yards     Sun Jun 19, 03:10 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is eyeing the 1,000-yard mark in 2016 at 33 years old. Gore is more determined this year after just missing 1,000 rushing yards last season at 967 yards. 'I just have to start taking care of my body, eating healthy, start training to get myself ready and to try to go get it,' Gore said.

Footballguys view: The Colts improved their offensive line this offseason for two reasons. First (and most importantly), the team needed to protect QB Andrew Luck much better in 2016. Second, the team wants to run the ball more effectively. They haven't had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2007, but Gore has a chance to eclipse that mark if he stays healthy. Gore was only 33 yards short of 1,000 in 2015, but a better offensive line (and a healthy Luck) could help him improve the 3.7 yards-per-carry average he had last season.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief running routes    Sat Jun 18, 01:35 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) began running routes earlier this week for the first time since his toe surgery earlier this offseason.

Footballguys view: Moncrief played with turf toe over the last month (or so) of the 2015 season. He's out of his walking boot and could have a breakout season for the Colts in 2016. Moncrief is a favorite target of QB Andrew Luck, and with Luck healthy we're expecting big things from the Colts passing game. His current ADP is WR35 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Josh Ferguson impressing in OTAs    Fri Jun 17, 10:10 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson has impressed with his quickness in workouts, and head coach Chuck Pagano called him a 'mismatch' in space and 'not just a third-down back.'

Footballguys view: We're not surprised, and Ferguson is a dynasty prospect we have an appreciation for. During his college career at Illinois, Ferguson was known as a quick all-purpose back. Earlier this year at the East-West Shrine Game practices, Ferguson was also impressive with his quickness, foot frequency and ability to make defenders miss. The Colts have an interesting group of young RBs behind starter Frank Gore. If Gore goes down with an injury, we'll see if Ferguson or someone like Trey Williams could get more playing time.

  Colts | Andrew Luck on the move more?    Fri Jun 17, 12:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck will be on the move more in 2016, and offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer want to design more plays that can use Luck's athleticism outside of the pocket. Protecting Luck remains of utmost importance, though, and the Colts believe they have the personnel to do that. The Colts have used more rollouts in offseason practices.

Footballguys view: The Colts need to do whatever they can to protect Luck. Last year, the O-Line was terrible and Luck was beat up way too often...eventually knocking him out for the year. Having him on the move will help keep the rush away from him. If nothing is there as a passer, Luck has the athleticism to pick up yards as a rusher.

  Colts | Andrew Luck is a full participant    Mon Jun 13, 11:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) made all of his throws and looked in complete command during organized team activities (OTAs) after rehabilitation from a lacerated kidney. 'He's got a lot in his mind he wants to prove,' quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer said.

Footballguys view: If Luck is at full strength, the Colts are a team who can make a deep playoff run. The Colts should thrive through the air, and Luck is a QB1 for fantasy owners once again. His current ADP is QB3 (5.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | O-line coming together in Indy    Mon Jun 13, 11:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts OT Anthony Castonzo is expected to start at left tackle with OG Jack Mewhort at left guard and C Ryan Kelly in the middle. Two jobs remain up for grabs, as OT Joe Reitz is the incumbent at right tackle, although OT Le'Raven Clark might contend. OG Hugh Thornton (ankle) appears to have a leg up at the right guard spot, but he has missed time in the spring with an ankle injury. OLs Denzelle Good, Jonotthan Harrison and rookie Joe Haeg are also in the mix.

Footballguys view: This is the best news Colts fans could see come to fruition this year. The O-Line was terrible last year, and it was part of the reason why Andrew Luck was knocked out for the season. The team has a franchise QB in Luck, and they need to do everything they can to better protect him. They made a few moves to improve the O-Line and reports indicate all things look good on that front.

  Colts | Brian Tyms stands out in spring    Mon Jun 13, 11:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Brian Tyms stood out during organized team activities (OTAs), as he is locked in a battle for one of the two receiver spots behind WRs T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett. Beat writer Zak Keefer noted Tyms emerged from the pack of contenders for the No. 4 job, and he boasts size at 6-foot-3 that the team lacks among their top three receivers. The team expects to keep as many as six receivers.

Footballguys view: The Colts are the fifth team Tyms has been on since coming into the league with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Florida A&M in 2012. We'd be surprised if now is the time he makes an impact as a pro. There's not much competition behind the "big 3" at WR for the Colts, so perhaps Tyms is able to make the 53-man roster and see some snaps. Even if that's the case, Tyms won't be a fantasy factor unless there's a rash of injuries above him on the depth chart.

  Colts | Veteran Robert Mathis looking good    Mon Jun 13, 11:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts DE Robert Mathis (Achilles') is fully recovered from a torn Achilles' tendon which kept him out in 2014, and with limited playing time in 2015. He has been a full participant in the team's offseason program, save for a few days he was held out for rest. Beat writer Zak Keefer noted he looked fast and ready when on the field.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't as devastating as they used to be. He was slowed by the injury last season, but it sounds like Mathis is better this offseason. The Colts had 35 sacks last year, but with Mathis back near full strength that number could grow.

  Colts | Tyler Varga practices this offseason    Sat Jun 11, 10:19 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Tyler Varga (concussion) has been able to participate during offseason workouts and will compete for playing time during the preseason.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Yale in 2015, Varga is an instinctive runner who has reliable hands as a receiver out of the backfield. Behind Frank Gore, the Colts have some interesting names in the mix for the remaining spots. Varga is going to compete with guys like Josh Ferguson and Trey Williams for perhaps only one or two spots. We like Williams the best, but Ferguson is a shifty receiver...so Varga will have his hands full in this competition.

  Colts | Andrew Luck learning to slide    Fri Jun 10, 09:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is reluctantly accepting the fact that he needs to slide when he leaves the pocket, OT Anthony Castonzo said.

Footballguys view: Good! We admire Luck's toughness, but he can't expect to have a long and fruitful career if he doesn't learn to slide. The NFL beating that Luck has to take needs to be reduced, and the Colts have made moves to clean up the offensive line. Now, it's on Luck to help protect himself further.

  Colts | Andrew Luck feels he is a better QB    Fri Jun 10, 09:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is improving with every practice, head coach Chuck Pagano said, and Luck said he is 'physically and mentally' a better quarterback.

Footballguys view: We're excited about the Colts offense with a healthy Luck under center. They could make a run at the playoffs this year so long as their young passer is healthy and in the lineup. Fantasy owners should consider Luck a high-end QB1. His current ADP is QB3 (5.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Andrew Luck deal not imminent    Thu Jun 9, 12:46 PM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's next contract needs to work for both sides, and nothing is imminent yet, according to owner Jim Irsay. The team has set a soft deadline for training camp in July to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: There's no rush and the Colts need to be careful because they still need to field a team around Luck so they can't spend every cent. We think he's due for a bounce-back season though and should be a solid QB1 this fantasy season.

  Colts | Andrew Luck progressing toward deal    Wed Jun 8, 02:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is making progress toward a blockbuster extension, sources say, which is expected to be finalized in July.

Footballguys view: This is the biggest no-brainer in the history of Earth. Pay the man! Luck is arguably the best young QB in the game, and he's about to get paid in a big way. The deal is expected to make Luck the highest-paid player in league history, and he could reach $25 million annually.

  Colts | Nate Irving much lighter    Mon May 30, 01:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Nate Irving (knee) has lost 30 pounds this offseason after playing at 260 pounds last season. Irving and LB Sio Moore are expected to start opposite LB D'Qwell Jackson this year. Jackson said he can already tell that Irving is moving more confidently and has more explosion in his movement.

Footballguys view: Irving has a nose for the ball and at a lighter weight he should be better as a coverage player in space. The battle between Moore and Irving will have to be won in training camp.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen may be on field more    Fri May 27, 12:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen could see the field considerably more in the upcoming season, as new offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski may elect not to use as many multiple tight-end sets as former offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. The players listed behind Allen on the depth chart are all unproven, being TEs Jack Doyle, Erik Swoope and Darion Griswold.

Footballguys view: Coby Fleener moved on in free agency to the Saints, and that leaves "Robocop" aka Allen as the primary tight end. We like Swoope in super-deep dynasty leagues, but Allen really has no competition for snaps at the position. His current ADP of TE17 (13.03) seems too low.

  Colts | Josh Boyce works with starters    Tue May 17, 10:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Josh Boyce received work with the first-team offense during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, because of injuries to WRs Donte Moncrief (toe) and Phillip Dorsett (hamstring).

Footballguys view: This is a good opportunity for Boyce to make a positive impression. A fourth-round pick for the Patriots in 2013, Boyce did nothing of note in New England. Now he's trying to earn a roster spot on a deep Colts WR corps.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett suffers injury    Tue May 17, 10:13 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) suffered an apparent hamstring injury during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, according head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is a speed WR who has been banged up as a pro. Last year, the 2015 first-round pick missed five games of his rookie season due to a fractured fibula. This year, Dorsett will be in the mix to be the team's speed slot wide receiver. If healthy, he can stretch the field and track the ball down the seam.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief underwent surgery    Tue May 17, 08:27 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe) had surgery on his turf toe early in the offseason, but it's not expected to be a long-term issue.

Footballguys view: The Colts don't seem to be worried about this surgery. Moncrief was bothered by this injury at the end of last year, and surgery was decided to be the best option this offseason. All reports indicate that he'll be ready for training camp.

  Colts | Arthur Jones could be ready by camp    Tue May 17, 02:34 PM

There is hope that Indianapolis Colts DT Arthur Jones (ankle) may be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

  Colts | Andrew Luck full-go    Tue May 17, 02:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder, kidney) said he is full go with no limitations for organized team activities. He took part in every drill during OTAs.

Footballguys view: The Colts go as Luck goes. If he's healthy, the team can make a run at the postseason. Last year, Luck was beat down behind one of the league's worst offensive lines. The Colts have made more than a few steps to improve the play up front, so Luck should be better protected this season. With an average (at best) rushing attack, the offense should flow through Luck. Fantasy owners should consider him his normal QB1 in drafts. He's current ADP is QB4 (5.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Unlikely to rejoin Dwight Freeney    Sat May 14, 02:47 PM

Free-agent DE Dwight Freeney (Cardinals) probably won't be coming back to the Indianapolis Colts despite his desire to play in 2016, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Never say never, but signs seem to indicate that Freeney isn't going to return to the Colts. Freeney is not the same player he used to be and has 12 sacks over the last three years with two different teams (Chargers, Cardinals).

  Colts | Indy won't change Andrew Luck    Wed May 11, 01:38 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck missed nine games due to injury last year, but new quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer said they won't limit Luck and try to force him to change his playing style. Luck has taken more than 100 hits since entering the NFL, but he also committed 13 turnovers and completed just 55.3% of his pass attempts in seven games last year.

Footballguys view: The Colts need to do everything they can to protect Luck. He's arguably the best young QB in the league, and most certainly an elite-level passer. Luck needs time to throw and his amazing upside doesn't need to be cut short by injury. Four of the Colts eight picks in the 2016 NFL draft were offensive linemen. The Colts know what they have in Luck, and we expect them to do a much better job of keeping him upright.

  Colts | Everett Golson tries out with Indy    Sun May 8, 09:39 PM

Free-agent QB Everett Golson, QB Blake Frohnhapfel and QB Ammon Olsen were invited to try out for the Indianapolis Colts during rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: Golson is an athletic QB who bounced around during his college football career. We like Frohnhapfel more as he's accurate and makes decisions quickly with his arm. Any of these three guys are merely camp arms, but perhaps one could make his way to the team's practice squad as a developmental player.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is having serious contract negotiations with the organization, and owner Jim Irsay said he would like Luck signed by the start of training camp in July.

Footballguys view: What was the old line from Terrell Owens? "It's only a matter of time!" That's right, as in the near future we expect to see Luck rewarded with a contract that makes him the highest paid QB in the NFL. He's the key to their success, and the Colts need to do anything they can to lock him down for years to come.
