  Colts | Jordan Wilkins emerges as challenger    Wed Aug 15, 03:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has emerged as a potential backup, taking advantage of the absence of RB Marlon Mack (hamstring).

Footballguys view: Wilkins has always been a fantasy sleeper in this undecided backfield. The rookie from Ole Miss has a good all-purpose skill set with a good size/speed combination. Wilkins has good footwork and knows how to make defenders miss in tight quarters. He needs to improve his pass protection and run with a bit more authority if he wants a large role for the Colts in 2018. Fantasy GMs need to monitor this backfield looking for value. Wilkins has a current ADP of RB56 (13.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Indy hashing out starting CBs    Wed Aug 15, 03:07 PM

Indianapolis Colts CBs Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore II are listed as the team's starters on the unofficial depth chart, but CB Quincy Wilson made the start in the preseason opener over Desir last Thursday. Moore has reportedly been most steady in training camp so far, and he is viewed as the most versatile for the slot corner spot, too.

  Colts | Anthony Walker still nursing injury    Wed Aug 15, 03:06 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Anthony Walker Jr. (groin) tweaked his groin on July 29 and has been sidelined since, losing his grip on the starting job at the MIKE linebacker position. LBs Zaire Franklin and Skai Moore have been given looks at the position during training camp and the preseason, but Walker is still considered the favorite once he can return.

  Colts | Tarell Basham losing grip on job?    Wed Aug 15, 02:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts DE Tarell Basham was considered the definite favorite to start opposite DE Jabaal Sheard earlier in training camp, but the team has shuffled things around. DT Margus Hunt has moved over from defensive tackle to work at end, and DE John Simon has also worked with the starters. DE Kemoko Turay (undisclosed) is battling an undisclosed injury at the moment and isn't considered to be in the mix. The team is expected to use a rotation at the spot opposite Sheard even after someone officially wins the job.

  Colts | Right tackle up for grabs in Indy    Wed Aug 15, 02:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts OT Denzelle Good (hamstring) is likely the favorite to start at right tackle, but he is sidelined for two weeks to nurse a hamstring injury. OT Austin Howard has been demoted for poor play and unable to seize the opportunity, so OT J'Marcus Webb has worked with the first-team offense, while OT Joe Haeg has also started to see reps at the spot.

  Colts | Tion Green signed by Colts    Tue Aug 14, 05:02 PM

Free-agent RB Tion Green (Lions) was signed by the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, Aug. 14. LB Will Ossai was waived with a Non-Football Illness designation in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Green came out of Cincinnati as an undrafted free agent in 2017. Signed by the Lions, Green is a big-bodied back who can grind between the tackles. The Lions decided to let him go, and now he finds his way to Indianapolis.

  Colts | Indy adds Branden Oliver, Matt Hazel    Sun Aug 12, 07:31 PM

Free-agent RB Branden Oliver (Chargers) and WR Matt Hazel (Browns) signed with the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Aug. 12. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. The team also placed WR Deon Cain (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list and waived WR Dres Anderson.

Footballguys view: Oliver is a solid all-around back, but an achilles tear might have robbed him of his ceiling. Still, with the Colts backfield mostly banged up, it is worth tracking any competent back on the roster - even Christine Michael.

  Colts | Robert Turbin dealing with injury    Fri Aug 10, 06:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Robert Turbin (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the first preseason game and is considered week-to-week.

Footballguys view: Turbin will have plenty of time to get to 100% as he serves a four-game suspension to begin the season. The team appears to be keeping him on the roster despite the suspension, so he may be on our waiver wire watch list later in the season.

  Colts | Deon Cain has torn ACL    Fri Aug 10, 06:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the first preseason game and will miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: The worst fears ended up being correct, as Cain will be lost for the season. Fellow rookie Daurice Fountain has an opportunity opened up for him, and Ryan Grant is likely entrenched as the #2. Chester Rogers might end up being the #3, but he has had a mixed camp to date. Cain is still worth a stash in dynasty leagues, especially ones with IR slots.

  Colts | Deon Cain could have serious knee injury    Fri Aug 10, 03:52 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) may have suffered a season-ending knee injury in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Aug. 9, according to The Ringer's Michael Lombardi.

Footballguys view: Cain was pushing Chester Rogers to be the #3 and potentially play a big role in the red zone. This could help Jack Doyle, clearly the better red zone tight end of the Colts duo with Eric Ebron.

  Colts | Marlon Mack likely to miss 'a few weeks'    Fri Aug 10, 03:29 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks with a 'manageable hamstring strain,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who adds the team is still awaiting final confirmation.

Footballguys view: Good news, but this still mars the fantasy outlook of a speed back like Mack, at least until he comes back and plays a few weeks without incident. None of the other Colts backs impressed, so Mack is still in line to lead this backfield as soon as his hamstring is ready.

  Colts | Deon Cain injures knee    Fri Aug 10, 10:29 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) left the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, with a knee injury and did not return.

Footballguys view: Ryan Grant appeared to be clearly ahead of Cain for the #2 wideout spot despite Cain's offseason and camp buzz, and this injury will only increase the gap between the two.

  Colts | Andrew Luck back in action    Thu Aug 9, 11:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) completed six of his nine pass attempts for 64 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Nothing of note happened, which is great news. Luck was able to be effective on high percentage passes and took some hits. Everything is on schedule for him to start Week 1 vs Cincinnati.

  Colts | Marlon Mack tweaks hamstring    Thu Aug 9, 11:07 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) exited the preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury Thursday, Aug. 9, and won't return.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries can be tricky for speed backs like Mack. The good news for him is that the rookie backs didn't play a big role or overwhelm on their touches, but the Colts will likely be very cautious with Mack through the rest of the preseason and we'll hold our breath when he takes his first post-injury touches.

  Colts | Andrew Luck will play sparingly    Thu Aug 9, 01:33 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is expected to play between two to four series, according to The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.

Footballguys view: The team will -- wisely -- be cautious with Luck. Things look good right now, and he doesn't look rusty, so why risk scuttling the season before it's begun with a Luck injury? The offensive line looks improved, he has some good targets and a defense which should keep him in games. He's a top-five talent hovering at 10 overall for quarterback ADP. If Fantasy GMs like what they see over the next few weeks in preseason, he could move up past that.

  Colts | Nyheim Hines listed as top returner    Wed Aug 8, 07:35 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines is listed as the No. 1 kick and punt returner on the team's first depth chart.

Footballguys view: Hines is explosive and he is a bit of a sleeper for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues. If he plays up to his potential, the opportunity is there for him to have some flex appeal in that format. He could be the Colts version of Chris Thompson.

  Colts | Erik Swoope lost in the shuffle?    Wed Aug 8, 03:03 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Erik Swoope has reportedly been having a strong training camp, but he remains behind newcomer TE Eric Ebron and incumbent TE Jack Doyle on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Swoope has always been an intriguing deep dynasty prospect, mainly because of his story (never played college football) and skill set (basketball player in college at Miami). He is buried on the depth chart but an injury or two could put him into a more prominent role. Just remember the name as things are finally shaping up for Swoope after developing for a few years with the Colts.

  Colts | Malik Hooker still limited    Tue Aug 7, 02:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) remains limited during practice and is not expected to be a full participant until next week at the earliest.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Hooker made it through only seven games as a rookie. His talent is off the charts and the team should ease him back into action now that he's ready to participate. The team is hoping that Hooker will be able to play in the third preseason game.

Indianapolis Colts WRs Ryan Grant and T.Y. Hilton 'have really separated themselves' with regards to the top two receiver spots on the depth chart, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Grant appears to still have created a gap between him and rookie standout Deon Cain, with holdover Chester Rogers stuck at no higher than third on the depth chart.

  Colts | Erik Swoope having great camp    Mon Aug 6, 11:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts TE Erik Swoope is having a great camp, in the opinion of beat writer Zak Keefer.

Footballguys view: Swoope has taken a few years in the pros just to learn the position. He never played college football but instead played college basketball for the University of Miami. He brings that basketball skill set to the football field. Swoope is a player we've always monitored in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Colts | Ryan Grant listed as starter    Sun Aug 5, 09:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is listed as the starter opposite WR T.Y. Hilton on the first depth chart released Saturday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Grant was a fifth-round pick out of Tulane in 2014 and basically served as a backup receiver during his three years with Washington. Now with his new team, we'll see if Grant can show well as the starter. Hilton should absorb a lot of targets with Chester Rogers also getting some targets as the slot receiver. Grant caught 45 passes last year with Washington but projecting him for 30-40 catches this year might be fair...even with the new starting role.

  Colts | Anthony Castonzo to miss time    Sun Aug 5, 01:47 PM

Indianapolis Colts OT Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) is expected to 'miss a little bit of time' after reinjuring his hamstring Friday, Aug. 3. Castonzo is expected to be ready to play in time for the season opener.

Footballguys view: The addition of Quenton Nelson should get this line out of the bottom of the NFL ranks, but they'll need Castonzo to stay healthy. Hopefully this isn't a harbinger of an injury-marred season for the team's best offensive lineman for the last few years.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett unlikely to be moved    Sat Aug 4, 05:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett likely will not be traded even if a team offered a first-round pick, according to owner Jim Irsay. Irsay said he believes Brissett is the best backup quarterback in the NFL.

Footballguys view: It's debatable who the best backup quarterback in the league is, but Philadelphia fans (hello, Nick Foles, Super Bowl MVP) would take issue with Irsay's claim. Brissett showed a bit filling in for Andrew Luck last year. He's not Luck, but if Brissett is forced into the lineup the bottom won't fall out of the offense.

  Colts | Owner high on Marlon Mack    Sat Aug 4, 01:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack has the chance to rush for 1,500 yards this season, in the opinion of owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: We'll take Irsay's comments with a grain of salt here. All signs point towards the Colts employing a three or even four-way (once Robert Turbin is back) committee in the backfield. Mack is still the most valuable in terms of ADP.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to play in preseason opener    Fri Aug 3, 02:54 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is expected to play with the starters for about a quarter in the preseason opener versus the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: This is much better than anyone would have projected when Luck wasn't throwing a regulation football yet in the spring. If he doesn't have any setbacks, Luck should be good to go for Week 1 against Cincinnati and he's looking like a value at his current ADP.

  Colts | Nyheim Hines working as receiver    Thu Aug 2, 10:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has been lining up in the slot and being sent into motion out of the backfield when he isn't running the ball.

Footballguys view: Hines could be an intriguing PPR guy if he is lining up in the slot a ton. He's got excellent speed and Andrew Luck has lacked a weapon for the shorter throws since his tight ends never seem to work out. He might be worth an upside pick late, especially in PPR leagues.

  Colts | Jordan Wilkins pushing for time    Thu Aug 2, 10:33 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has been coming into his own during training camp, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, and Holder believes Wilkins could force his way into the running back rotation.

Footballguys view: Wilkins isn't the fastest back, but he's quick and shows tremendous vision. The Colts don't have a great backfield, so if he keeps this up he could see snaps. Right now Marlon Mack is likely to be the lead running back, but he's no sure thing. If Wilkins does work during the preseason games, you can bet he will get a shot. Right now he's not worth a pickup, but he is a guy to watch.
