  Colts | Eric Ebron topped TEs in red zone    Fri Apr 19, 12:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron was the league's highest-graded tight end in the red zone in the 2018 season with a Pro Football Focus grade of 85.7.

Footballguys view: Ebron had a whopping 13 touchdowns in 2018 and that's why he finished as a top-5 fantasy tight end. We'll see if he can duplicate that success moving forward in 2019 as a favorite target in the red zone for QB Andrew Luck.

  Colts | Darius Leonard aiming to play lighter in 2019    Tue Apr 16, 09:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Darius Leonard weighs 221 pounds at the moment and intends to keep his weight below 225 in order to take advantage of his athleticism.'I'm not a typical linebacker. I'm more of a speed guy, very athletic so if I'm going to play in space, I'm going to need to move. ... I played all my life at 215, 220 and was never over 225. And last year I was injured a lot, that was when I was pretty heavy, so I want to stay down. Hopefully, I can cut some of that down,' Leonard told Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan.

  Colts | Deon Cain likely to miss workouts    Mon Apr 15, 09:37 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) likely will miss all of the offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: We've heard this update from Ballard before. There are no known setbacks to Cain's recovery, so we should think he'll be back by training camp.

  Colts | Chester Rogers signs tender    Mon Apr 15, 08:41 AM

Indianapolis Colts restricted free-agent WR Chester Rogers signed his second-round tender Monday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Rogers was a restricted free agent and the second-round tender meant he was likely staying with the Colts. We should see him work as the slot receiver for the Colts this year with T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess on the outside.

  Colts | High ceiling for Deon Cain    Sun Apr 14, 10:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) has 'great upside,' according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: We love Clemson receivers in dynasty formats, and Cain does have great upside if he can stay healthy and improve. Cain was a sixth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2018 NFL draft and his rookie season was cut short by a knee injury suffered in August. The Colts have revamped their WR corps this offseason, but Cain is one to keep tabs on as the pecking order at the position is established in training camp.

  Colts | Josh Jacobs visiting Indy    Thu Apr 11, 01:58 PM

Former Alabama RB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Josh Jacobs is visiting with the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, April 11, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jacobs is widely considered the best RB in the 2019 NFL draft. He's a swift runner with plenty of power. He keeps his feet upon contact and Jacobs can be used effectively as a receiver out of the backfield. Once he builds a head of steam, changing direction quickly or smoothly is a problem. The Colts have a jam-packed backfield already but are looking at adding more talent to the position. Jacobs might be the only RB selected in the first round of this draft.

  Colts | Indianapolis hosts Spencer Ware    Tue Apr 9, 05:50 PM

Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) visited the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: Ware has some skill as a runner and receiver but has had trouble staying healthy in the pros. The Colts already have a jam-packed backfield but are just updating their emergency list by taking a look at Ware.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton coming off career highs    Sun Apr 7, 12:22 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted career season highs last season with 90.7 receiving yards per game and a 63.3-percent catch rate despite battling though various injuries.

Footballguys view: Hilton is a WR1 for Fantasy GMs provided he stays healthy. The Colts didn't upgrade their receiver position (sorry Devin Funchess) as much as we expected them to this offseason. Hilton is Andrew Luck's favorite target and should continue to get plenty of opportunities in the Colts offense.

  Colts | Indianapolis in contact with Dontrelle Inman    Sat Mar 30, 02:01 PM

Free-agent WR Dontrelle Inman (Colts) is still receiving interest from the Indianapolis Colts, but the two sides are not close to an agreement.

Footballguys view: Inman played in nine games last year for the Colts, catching 28 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns. The Colts went out in free agency and added Devin Funchess but GM Chris Ballard has expressed interest in bringing back Inman. He did work out for the Lions but remains on the open market.

  Colts | Indy signs Justin Houston    Thu Mar 21, 04:02 PM

Free-agent LB Justin Houston (Chiefs) was signed to a two-year, $24 million contract by the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, March 21, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Houston gives the Colts much needed edge rush presence at a reasonable price. They were apparently in on Preston Smith, but lost out to the Packers. They are getting a better, if less durable player right now, one that could help them get past his old Chiefs teams in the playoffs.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) had a good visit with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 20, and the sides will continue their dialogue. A signing is not imminent, but not out of the question.

Footballguys view: We'll see where this goes. Ajayi is looking for another fresh start on the open market. The Colts have a nice group of running backs with guys like Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines...but clearly they are looking for more depth at the position.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) is scheduled to visit the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 20, according to a source.

The Colts have a good group of running backs in Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins but clearly they are looking for more help. We'll see if that's through free agency with a back like Ajayi or in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Colts | Indy officially signs Devin Funchess    Thu Mar 14, 07:14 PM

Free-agent WR Devin Funchess (Panthers) officially signed with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, March 14.

Footballguys view: Funchess is a big-bodied receiver who has yet to really play up to his potential. The Colts could use a big target like him opposite of T.Y. Hilton. We'll see if Funchess can stay healthy and be an effective weapon for the Colts. He's on a one-year deal, so if he doesn't work out the Colts can easily move on.

  Colts | Second-round tender for Chester Rogers    Mon Mar 11, 08:35 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts restricted free-agent WR Chester Rogers has received the second-round tender offer, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Grambling State a few years ago, this second-round tender means he's likely going to stay with the Colts. In 2018, Rogers had a career-high 53 catches, 485 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. The Colts added Devin Funchess in free agency but that should not cut that much into Rogers' production.

  Colts | Indy to add Devin Funchess    Mon Mar 11, 07:37 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess plans to sign a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth as much as $13 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Funchess is not a top-tier free agent, but he could contribute with an upgrade at the quarterback position with Andrew Luck. The big-bodied veteran had a down year with the Panthers in 2018 and should benefit from a change of scenery. Funchess has the size to be a threat in the red zone, and the Colts should have a high-powered offense. He's got WR2 upside for Fantasy GMs if he hits the numbers he had in 2017.

Free-agent WR Tyrell Williams (Chargers) is expected to be pursued by the Indianapolis Colts in free agency. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports anticipates Williams will demand $12 million annually.

Footballguys view: The Colts have over $100 million to spend in free agency. They are looking for upgrades at the wide receiver position for guys behind T.Y. Hilton. Williams has a nice size/speed combination and is looking for a larger role than he had with the Chargers in recent years. It seems like a good fit on paper, we'll see if this comes to fruition.

  Colts | Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown not fits for Indy    Wed Feb 27, 08:31 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are unlikely to receive much interest from the Indianapolis Colts, according to comments made by general manager Chris Ballard and head coach Frank Reich on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: The Colts have over $100 million in cap space but it sounds like they're not going to consider either of the superstar players from the Steelers. They are in a Super Bowl window and adding a talent like Bell (or Brown) could put them over the top. It sounds like they'll move in a different direction to continue building towards a championship.

Footballguys view: Cain was a sixth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2018 NFL draft. He missed all of his rookie season due to this knee injury. Cain has a great size/speed combination and could develop into a quality no.2 wide receiver for the Colts if he stays healthy. We like the dynasty upside of Cain, but know that the Colts should add competition at the position this offseason.

Footballguys view: Inman appeared in only nine games in 2018, catching just 28 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns. Expect the Colts to upgrade their WR corps whether or not they decide to keep Inman around for 2019.
