  Colts | Andrew Luck may not throw for a while    Wed May 23, 10:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not throw during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, and head coach Frank Reich said he is not sure if Luck will throw before the end of June minicamp but is confident that Luck will ramp things up in time for training camp.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are incredibly nervous about this situation and for good reason. The nerves can be calmed down if/when Luck starts throwing and shows no setbacks. He's QB14 (10.05) at this time in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Ryan Grant expected to start at WR?    Sun May 20, 04:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is the favorite over Chester Rogers to start opposite T.Y. Hilton, based on the one-year, $5 million contract Grant signed in free agency, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: That would make sense, but the competition is open and we won't see until training camp how things shake out. Grant is perhaps better suited to play outside, while Rogers may be best suited to play in the slot. With Andrew Luck back in action, the Colts passing game should have more life in 2018.

  Colts | Chester Rogers impressing coordinator    Wed May 16, 10:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers has been one of the standout performers this offseason, according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners to watch here. Rogers has flashed a bit during his pro career when not slowed down by a hamstring injury. The Colts are looking for a new no.2 wide receiver with Donte Moncrief moving on to the Jaguars this offseason. Rogers may have the early lead to start opposite T.Y. Hilton.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton impressing early on    Wed May 16, 02:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has stood out so far in the offseason program and appears to be giving new head coach Frank Reich and the coaching staff his full effort.

Footballguys view: Hilton has to be re-energized after a down season in 2017 that saw him fail to reach 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in four years. He's not catching passes from QB Andrew Luck yet, but the team is hopeful to get that dynamic duo fired up again in 2018. Hilton finished 2017 as WR25 (standard-scoring leagues) but could approach top-15 numbers (or higher) if the Colts offense is clicking on all cylinders.

Indianapolis Colts S Malik Hooker (knee) returned to the field for the first time Tuesday, May 15, since suffering a torn ACL and MCL on Oct. 22. Hooker did some back pedaling, cutting and breaking in different directions, according to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan.

  Colts | Terrance West visits Colts    Tue May 15, 04:47 PM

Free-agent RB Terrance West (Ravens) visited the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, May 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts already have six backs on the roster, but they are lacking in experience at the position...especially after adding Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the 2018 NFL draft. West appeared in only five games last year and averaged a career-low 3.5 yards per carry. He's gotten little interest other than a workout for the Eagles about a week ago. The Colts may just be updating their emergency list here.

  Colts | Deon Cain to have a role early?    Sun May 13, 12:03 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain could 'find catches as a rookie' despite being a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Cain fell to the sixth round even though some felt he would be a second or third round pick. A former high school quarterback, Cain is dangerous with the ball in his hands after the catch. He's got the ability to 'stab and stash' the ball quickly so defenders don't get much of a shot at stripping the ball away. Cain did not increase his production in college with enhanced opportunity and may never be more than a quality rotational player. The upside is there to be more if he can play up to that untapped potential.

  Colts | Nyheim Hines turning heads    Sat May 12, 09:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has displayed an impressive ability to catch the ball, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Hines should be turning heads as he's got the 'wow' factor when touching the ball as a runner or receiver. He's got the ability to be moved all over the formation as Hines is a running back but can play slot receiver as well. Expect the Colts to mix him into the offense, making him an interesting flier pick in deep PPR leagues with 'what the heck' flex potential.

  Colts | Indy adds Rakeem Nunez-Roches    Fri May 11, 06:50 PM

The Indianapolis Colts claimed DE Rakeem Nunez-Roches off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, May 11. The team also waived LB Joshua Perry.

Footballguys view: The Colts now take over Nunez-Roches' entire $1.9 million salary for 2018. It's a bit of an odd pairing given the Colts defensive scheme, but we'll see if a fresh start can do Nunez-Roches some good.

  Colts | Quenton Nelson among nine signees for Colts    Fri May 11, 08:47 AM

Indianapolis Colts OG Quenton Nelson, DE Kemoko Turay, DE Tyquan Lewis, RB Nyheim Hines, WR Daurice Fountain, RB Jordan Wilkins, WR Deon Cain, LB Matthew Adams and LB Zaire Franklin signed their rookie four-year deals Friday, May 11. Nelson, a first-round pick, has an option for a fifth year. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Hines, Fountain and Wilkins here. Hines is a running back/slot receiver who can make big plays with explosion and burst. Fountain is a better-than-advertised route runner who can get open and make plays after the catch. Wilkins is an early fantasy darling out there and seen as a player with Matt Forte-like ability who could take over the backfield duties from Marlon Mack. Stay tuned.

  Colts | Marlon Mack the early favorite at RB    Tue May 8, 12:00 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack 'remains the favorite to slide into the starting role' left behind by Frank Gore and 'assume whatever the Colts consider a No. 1 running back in 2018,' according to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.

Footballguys view: Mack (shoulder) played with a torn labrum in 2017, according to general manager Chris Ballard. As a rookie, Mack only had 93 carries for 358 yards with 21 receptions for 255 yards and four touchdowns combined. He'll be at the top of the depth chart to begin OTAs and minicamp, but Mack will face competition from rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. Mack needs to stay healthy and show that he can be a full-time back, or at least the lead back in a committee. The Colts backfield is one fantasy owners are going to have to wait and see what happens in training camp.

  Colts | Quenton Nelson to start at LG    Mon May 7, 04:02 PM

Indianapolis Colts OG Quenton Nelson is expected to be the starting left guard this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Nelson is a generational talent at the guard position. He's big, physical, mean and nasty on the football field. Protecting Andrew Luck has been a huge problem for the Colts in the past. Drafting Nelson will help that and he'll also blast open holes for the rushing attack.

  Colts | Marlon Mack had torn labrum as rookie    Tue May 1, 11:11 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) played with a torn labrum in 2017, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

  Colts | Steve Ishmael signed by Colts    Tue May 1, 03:12 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Steve Ishmael (Syracuse) was signed by the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Ishmael just kept getting better as his college career with the Orange carried on. Last year, Ishmael led the ACC in receptions (105) and receiving yards (1,345). He plays with outstanding body control and a physical nature at 6'2" 210 pounds.

  Colts | Matt Jones waived    Tue May 1, 10:58 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Matt Jones was waived Tuesday, May 1.

Footballguys view: No surprise here, especially after the Colts selected both Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the 2018 NFL draft. Jones only had five carries for the Colts last year and he may find it difficult to latch on with a new team.

  Colts | Nyheim Hines a dual threat    Mon Apr 30, 09:23 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has a unique skill set that should enable him to be a factor in the offense as both a runner and receiver. Hines played two years of receiver in college before moving to the backfield after a logjam cleared. Hines said multiple teams discussed drafting him and making him a permanent slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Hines was a dual threat in college who can line up in the backfield, in the slot or out wide. It will be interesting to see how and where the Colts play him on the field. Hines has the speed to take it the distance any time he touches the ball.

  Colts | Marlon Mack in a committee?    Sat Apr 28, 10:01 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not the clear starter, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'I'm fine with running back by committee,' Reich said.

Footballguys view: Nyheim Hines is just as explosive and maybe a better receiver, and Jordan Wilkins is a better inside runner. The Colts should employ an Eagles-esque running back rotation like the one Reich used in Philadelphia last year.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was a trade target for a few teams, but the Colts did not consider any trade offers, according to owner Jim Irsay.

  Colts | Indy drafts Nyheim Hines    Sat Apr 28, 12:20 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected North Carolina State RB Nyheim Hines with the 104th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Hines is a versatile back who has home run ability but lacks the size to be a bell-cow back. A sprinter in college, he has breakaway speed, and has the experience to be a slot receiver as well if the Colts have need. Aside from size concerns, Hines is a better athlete than a football player, isn't the greatest pass-catcher and sometimes struggles to adjust to the blocking in front of him.

  Colts | Tyquan Lewis drafted by Indianapolis     Fri Apr 27, 09:14 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Ohio State DE Tyquan Lewis with the 64th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

Footballguys view: A big, impressive looking guy, Lewis had an off year in 2017. He's shown flashes of speed which has let him get past linemen both inside and out, but his overall athleticism and lack of run-stopping ability is disappointing.

  Colts | Indianapolis adds Kemoko Turay    Fri Apr 27, 08:34 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Rutgers DE Kemoko Turay with the 52nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

  Colts | Braden Smith selected by Colts    Fri Apr 27, 07:27 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Auburn OG Braden Smith with the 37th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

Footballguys view: All it seemed to take was a major, lingering injury to Andrew Luck for the Colts to begin really focusing on offensive line play. Along with first round guard Quenton Nelson, Smith forms a tough inside vanguard for the run game, and a solid overall improvement in pass blocking up the middle.

The Indianapolis Colts selected South Carolina State LB Darius Leonard with the 36th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

  Colts | Quenton Nelson ready to contribute     Thu Apr 26, 11:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts OG Quenton Nelson said he will help the passing game and the running game. 'So that's what I give is a pocket to step up in, and I think I also help the offense establish the run through my nastiness,' Nelson said.

Footballguys view: He'll have his work cut out for him. While he upgrades things, he can't play all five positions at once. Nelson is a great start though.
