  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.

Footballguys view: Getting Jones back is a good thing for the Colts defense. Jones missed all of last season with an ankle injury. Injuries have kept Jones off the field for all but nine games since he signed with the Colts back in 2014.

  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'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.

  Colts | Antonio Morrison signs rookie deal    Fri May 6, 01:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Antonio Morrison signed his rookie contract Friday, May 6.

Footballguys view: Morrison was once arrested for barking at a police dog. When asked why he did it, Morrison said "He barked at me first". He could push to start next to D'Qwell Jackson this year.

  Colts | Ryan Kelly agrees to terms    Wed May 4, 09:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts first-round draft choice C Ryan Kelly agreed to terms with the Colts Wednesday, May 4. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Colts need to do something at the center position, and they get a huge upgrade here with Kelly. He's smart, tough and physical. We're expecting him to be a quality center for the Colts for a decade.

  Colts | Owner wants Andrew Luck signed soon    Sun May 1, 08:48 AM

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.

  Colts | Indy takes Ryan Kelly 18th overall    Thu Apr 28, 10:11 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Alabama C Ryan Kelly with the 18th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: A smart move for a team whose quarterback got killed last season. Kelly was not flagged for a holding penalty last year and was a very stable piece of the Bama offensive line.

  Colts | Jihad Ward meets with Colts    Wed Apr 27, 10:33 AM

Illinois DT Jihad Ward met with Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson Tuesday, April 26.

Footballguys view: Ward is versatile and athletic, but he is still a project as a defensive lineman after starting his junior college career as a wide receiver/safety. The Colts should be looking at him in the second round, although his ceiling could get him into first round consideration.

  Colts | Sign two offensive tackles    Wed Apr 20, 05:16 PM

Free-agent OTs Kevin Graf (Eagles) and Mitchell Van Dyk (Steelers) signed undisclosed deals with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, April 20.

  Colts | Andrew Luck not at full health     Mon Apr 18, 05:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder, kidney) said he's not as healthy as he can be and that he still has work to do, although he did say he feels really good. Luck did he say he participated in everything during the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: The Broncos broke Luck last year during the regular season, and the Colts season tanked after he went down. Luck did not disclose a timeline for his rehabilitation or what he must do in order to complete a full recovery by Week 1.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett expected to be No. 3 WR    Mon Apr 18, 04:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Colts in 2016 if he is able to stay healthy.

Footballguys view: A trio of T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Dorsett should be fantastic. Now we'll see if Andrew Luck can stay healthy and shine in 2016. The Colts have offensive firepower, but their offensive line needs a ton of work.

  Colts | Indy's No. 2 TE job Jack Doyle's to lose    Fri Apr 1, 09:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will have the first shot at being the No. 2 tight end in 2016 with TE Coby Fleener signing with the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Doyle is unlikely to have much fantasy value in 2016. Dwayne Allen is going to finally get the chance to prove himself as the lead TE for the Colts after years of splitting time with Fleener.

  Colts | Indy works out Marshaun Coprich    Mon Mar 28, 03:41 PM

Illinois State RB Marshaun Coprich worked out privately for the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 28, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Watching his ultra-productive career (over 5,200 yards rushing) there are some who will compare him to Darren Sproles. We're not buying it. Coprich can make people miss, but he's not as explosive as Sproles is. Think more Jacquizz Rodgers when considering a pro comparison for the late-round or undrafted prospect. Coprich accepted a plea agreement this summer for selling nine grams of marijuana to undercover officer and will still be on probation during the draft.

  Colts | Andrew Luck needs to learn to slide    Thu Mar 24, 12:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck needs to learn how to slide better in order to avoid big hits in games, according to owner Jim Irsay. Minor league baseball manager Dean Treanor has offered his services to teach Luck the proper way to slide. Luck suffered a lacerated kidney on a hit he took last season and missed extended time.

Footballguys view: It's the least of his issues, as he had a lot of accuracy and timing problems last year. If he's healthy, we think he bounces back this coming season and could be a solid QB2 in fantasy.

The Indianapolis Colts view OT Anthony Castonzo as a rock at left tackle, even though he is coming off, arguably, his worst season since 2011.

Footballguys view: Andrew Luck's 2015 was a nightmare, due in large part to offensive line play. He is still an elite QB1 heading into the 2016 season, but Luck's seemingly safe floor is not longer an asset after the bottom dropped out last year.
