  Colts | Robert Mathis needs to slow down    Mon Aug 3, 10:43 AM

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (Achilles') needs to slow down in his rehabilitation process, according to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. Mathis, 34, is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon and will be brought along slowly.

  Colts | Owners expects T.Y. Hilton extension    Thu Jul 30, 12:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has a good chance to receive a contract extension before the start of the regular season, according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: The Colts want to get deals with their core players done, and Hilton is certainly a centerpiece of the offense. We could see him sign a deal similar to what both Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant received ($14 million annually) earlier this year.

  Colts | Gosder Cherilus released    Sun Jul 26, 12:26 PM

Indianapolis Colts OT Gosder Cherilus was released Sunday, July 26.

Footballguys view: The Colts offensive line already has enough question marks, but Cherilus was evidently expendable. Slow to recover from a knee injury, Cherilus failed to live up to the $35 million contract he received from the Colts back in 2013. There's still $8.7 million in dead money remaining on that deal.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen the preferred TE?    Fri Jul 24, 09:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen has started every game he has been healthy enough to play in, and Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes Allen's more complete skill set and the team's expanded receiving corps could lead to more snaps for Allen as the lone tight end in 2015.

Footballguys view: Allen is fantastic, but he's also been banged up quite a bit. Over the last two years, Allen has only played in 14 games. If healthy, Allen should be a high-upside TE2 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is TE13 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Chuck Pagano believes in Robert Mathis    Thu Jul 23, 10:01 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (Achilles') 'will make a huge impact' this season, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: The Colts need all the help on defense they can get. Their offense is jam-packed with superstars, but their poor offensive line and poor defense is a serious concern. They're most certainly a Super Bowl contender, and getting great play from Mathis would definitely help.

  Colts | Andrew Luck works with receivers    Sat Jul 18, 10:56 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck recently worked out with some of his receivers at Stanford University in preparation for training camp.

Footballguys view: Luck and the Colts are going to have an incredibly powerful passing attack. The extra work this offseason should help this offense get off to a hot start.

  Colts | Frank Gore should see more running room     Fri Jul 17, 11:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore faced eight-plus defenders in the box more than any other running back in his final season with the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: He faced defenses like that because Colin Kaepernick doesn't exactly strike fear into the hearts of opponents (minus Dom Capers) as a passer. With Andrew Luck as his new quarterback, Gore should see defenses thinned out to defend the pass. That should lead to strong RB2 numbers from Gore this season.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton could leave Indianapolis    Fri Jul 17, 12:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will likely command more than the $11 million per season that Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace receives, and Hilton could receive the franchise tag or become a free agent next year as the team works on an extension for QB Andrew Luck, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.

Footballguys view: It's a bit soon to be predicting whether or not Hilton is going to stay with the Colts. He's not going to get Calvin Johnson (or Dez or Demaryius) money, but he'll be paid in that second-tier range. He's a favorite target of Luck, and we have a feeling the two sides will be able to get something done.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton may not give discount    Thu Jul 16, 07:49 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is not expected to give the Colts a hometown discount when the time comes for his contract extension, according to Stephen Holder of the indystar.com.

Footballguys view: Hilton was a third-round pick by the Colts in the 2012 NFL draft, so he's not exactly been breaking the bank in NFL terms. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract and should get a handsome payday next offseason. Hilton is unlikely to match the contracts that both Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas just received, but he could get rewarded with a deal appropriate for the next tier of wide receivers.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen sheds weight    Wed Jul 15, 12:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen plans to play at 255 pounds, which is 13 pounds lighter than he was last season.

Footballguys view: A lighter Allen could be a more explosive player, and perhaps it will help him stay healthier. He's going to once again split time at tight end with Coby Fleener. Allen is coming off the board at TE14 (12.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Indy to spread the field more?    Thu Jul 9, 06:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and Co. are expected to spread the field more this season with three-and four-wide receiver sets.

Footballguys view: Luck was already the most valuable fantasy quarterback this year. His weapons have been upgraded, but his defense really hasn't, so Luck could set the bar even higher this year. If your league lets him fall to the third round, abandon the plan of waiting on QB.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief could be returner    Sun Jun 28, 01:30 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is a candidate to return kicks this season, according to special teams coach Tom McMahon.

Footballguys view: The Colts wide receivers corps is a bit stacked right now, so getting Moncrief on the field for returns makes a ton of sense. With Andre Johnson and T.Y. Hilton in the lineup, it's possible Moncrief could end up with a lot less targets--especially with rookie Phillip Dorsett thrown in the mix at WR3. So the Colts would naturally try to utilize Moncrief's abilities in other ways. This helps GMs a little bit in leagues that give you points for returns but he's still no more than a WR5.

  Colts | Nate Irving ahead of schedule    Sun Jun 28, 09:39 AM

Indianapolis Colts LB Nate Irving (knee) is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and has a chance to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: The Colts could use him rotating into the middle of the linebackers, swapping out with Jerrell Freeman when necessary. He just signed a three-year deal, and the team is certainly betting on him helping solidify the run defense.

  Colts | Coby Fleener wants to improve play    Fri Jun 26, 05:45 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener said he wants to be a more consistent player and is looking to limit his mistakes on the field. 'Your flubs are aired in front of the whole world. Whether you're sitting at a desk all day or whether you're playing football, nobody wants to make the 'Not Top 10.' Unfortunately I've been there and I'm trying to limit that as much as possible.'

Footballguys view: The Colts have one of the most exciting passing games in the league. Fleener has been a favorite target of QB Andrew Luck from their days together in college at Stanford. He'll split time and targets once again with Dwayne Allen in 2015. Fantasy owners should consider Fleener a low-end TE2 who could put up TE1 numbers in certain matchups.

  Colts | Jack Mewhort may start at RT    Wed Jun 24, 06:13 PM

Indianapolis Colts OG Jack Mewhort could start at right tackle if OT Gosder Cherilus (groin, knee) is not ready to play during training camp. Mewhort will stay at left guard if Cherilus is healthy enough to play.

Footballguys view: The Colts offensive line is pretty messy...and a big question mark entering the 2015 season. We feel they should have addressed the position better in the 2015 NFL draft instead of stockpiling players at other positions (another WR, talented as Phillip Dorsett is but really?). Our own offensive line expert, Matt Bitonti, ranked the Colts 21st in his OL rankings at Footballguys.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett wants to be a playmaker    Tue Jun 23, 04:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett said he wants to be a playmaker for the team this season. 'I consider myself a playmaker,' Dorsett said. 'I want to be able to earn their trust and be a guy that they can look to to make a big play and make a play anytime. I just want to earn their trust and that's it right now.' Dorsett said he has learned all of the receiver positions and is ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is a playmaker. He can fly down the field and take the top off the defense regularly. Dorsett does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder, and he does a good job of disguising when deep passes are incoming. We love his upside, but we're curious about his role this year. Dorsett is behind T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson on the depth chart. He'll compete with Donte Moncrief to be the team's WR3 in 2015.

  Colts | Evan Mathis not in plans    Wed Jun 17, 07:20 AM

Free-agent OG Evan Mathis (Eagles) isn't being pursued by the Indianapolis Colts, and the team is unlikely to change its mind.

Footballguys view: The Colts should be after Mathis as they have a shaky offensive line in front of superstar Andrew Luck. Teams seem to be shying away from the talented veteran because of his likely price tag. Mathis can still play at a high level, and there's a few teams out there who will have no problem paying his salary.

  Colts | Frank Gore appears to be fresh    Tue Jun 16, 12:20 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was in attendance for nearly all of the team's voluntary workouts, and he displayed a dedication that is not necessarily expected of such an established player. He appears fresh and is as motivated as ever.

Footballguys view: Message! Gore is going to be the bellcow back for the Colts this season, and he could post some nice numbers in this offense. Opponents are going to be focused on stopping (or at least slowing down) Andrew Luck and the Colts passing game. This should mean fewer men in the box for Gore to attack. Gore is a safe and reliable RB2 for your fantasy team, and his current ADP is RB14 (3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Vick Ballard doing individual work    Tue Jun 16, 12:19 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has resumed doing individual field work and he is shooting for Aug. 1 to return to football-related activities. He has yet to be medically cleared.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries are the career-ending injuries they used to be, but Ballard is facing an uphill battle. The Colts have a talented backfield led by Frank Gore, and Ballard may not be able to make the final roster. He'll compete with Dan Herron, Zurlon Tipton and Josh Robinson to establish the pecking order behind Gore.

  Colts | Indy pleased with Phillip Dorsett    Tue Jun 16, 12:18 AM

The Indianapolis Colts are pleased with WR Phillip Dorsett, who has quickly acclimated to the offense while showing a varied skill set. "He's learning multiple positions in this offense, which is not easy," general manager Ryan Grigson said Monday, June 15.

Footballguys view: There's a lot to like about Dorsett's game. He can fly down the field, track the ball easily over his shoulder and make big catches downfield. Dorsett is going to compete with Donte Moncrief to be the team's WR3 behind T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton not worried about contract    Sun Jun 14, 07:33 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said Saturday, June 13, that he is leaving contract negotiations to his agent and is going to 'just go out and have fun' this year.

Footballguys view: Hilton has a meager cap number of around $1.6 million this season. With another solid year of production, he will be seeing a much larger paycheck in 2016. The Colts would be wise to keep him around because of his connection with Andrew Luck, but affording his services could be difficult. Hilton may be looking at a contract that pays him $9-10 million annually.

  Colts | No timetable for two linemen    Sun Jun 14, 10:14 AM

Indianapolis Colts OT Gosder Cherilus (groin, knee) and OG Donald Thomas (quadriceps) do not have return dates at this point.

Footballguys view: The Colts have issues up front on the offensive line. They will be cautious with both of these guys as they return from injury. Cherilus will start at right tackle, while Thomas will be a reserve left guard for the Colts.

  Colts | Vick Ballard able to do some things    Sun Jun 14, 09:51 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has been able to participate in some individual drills this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ballard has not received medical clearance at this point but believes he can return to the field by August 1st. He'll compete with guys like Dan Herron, Josh Robinson and Zurlon Tipton to be the primary backup behind Frank Gore. He's no lock to make the final roster.

  Colts | Extension coming for T.Y. Hilton?     Thu Jun 11, 05:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton could be receiving an extension in the near future, according to owner Jim Irsay. Irsay said he'd like to get something done sooner rather than later.

Footballguys view: It's wise to lock him down, though the Colts have to make sure they don't overspend on the offense and hurt the defense long term, as they did during the Peyton Manning years. That said, if they lock Hilton down now, they will probably save money as his value will keep rising. Right now Hilton is tracking as a borderline WR1 with an ADP of 3.02, which is right about where his value is.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen keeping focus on field    Sat Jun 6, 09:42 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen said he isn't going to worry about a possible contract extension during the season. 'It's a lot of mouths to feed, and if you worry about that, you're not going to play well,' Allen said. 'The best thing you can do for yourself is know that off-field stuff will take care of itself.'

Footballguys view: Both Allen and Coby Fleener are set to hit the free agent market next offseason. The Colts will monitor both closely, and there's a good chance only one of them returns. Allen has the higher upside, but Fleener has that chemistry with Andrew Luck which dates back to their days together in college at Stanford. Allen is right to focus only on playing well. If he performs up to his expected level, the rest will take care of itself.

  Colts | Josh Robinson could have a role    Sat Jun 6, 06:49 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Robinson has a chance to receive snaps in 2015 and could be a key part of the team's backfield in the future, according to beat writer Kevin Bowen.

Footballguys view: At 5'9" 215 pounds, Robinson is a bowling ball between the tackles and he's got good hands as a receiver out of the backfield. It's Frank Gore's show this season, but Robinson could be groomed in 2015 for a larger role in the future.

  Colts | Robert Mathis' timetable shifts    Fri Jun 5, 10:25 AM

Indianapolis Colts OLB Robert Mathis (Achilles') has shifted his timetable from being ready for training camp in August to preparing to be ready by the season opener in September.

Footballguys view: The Colts are moving things back here. Achilles' injuries aren't quite as devastating as they used to be, but for an older player like Mathis any extra recovery time is a good thing. If he suffers any setback during recovery, then starting the season on the PUP list could be an option.

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was not in attendance at the team's voluntary organized team activities Wednesday, June 3, according to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. No reason was given for Gore's absence, but Pagano stressed the practices are voluntary.

Footballguys view: We're not worried here, and you shouldn't be either.

  Colts | Jean Sifrin waived    Wed Jun 3, 05:37 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jean Sifrin was waived Wednesday, June 3.

Footballguys view: Sifrin was waived to make room for TE Sean McGrath as he attempts a comeback after "retiring" from football last year. An undrafted free agent out of UMASS this year, Sifrin was initially discovered a few years ago playing flag football. The 27-year old had 42 catches for 642 yards and six scores last year in college.

  Colts | Sean McGrath making comeback    Tue Jun 2, 10:39 PM

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent TE Sean McGrath (Chiefs) Tuesday, June 2. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Indianapolis Colts DE Robert Mathis (Achilles') plans to be ready for the start of training camp Aug. 1.

  Colts | Tyler Rutenbeck signs with Indy    Mon Jun 1, 09:25 AM

Undrafted free-agent WR Tyler Rutenbeck (Dubuque) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Monday, June 1.

Footballguys view: Rutenbeck has a slender build, measuring in at 6'2" 186 pounds. Washington signed him as an undrafted free agent earlier this year, but they released him after 12 days. The Division III star caught 33 touchdowns over the last two seasons. He'll try to latch on as a practice squad player as the Colts have an incredibly deep and talented group of wide receivers.

  Colts | Andre Johnson loving Andrew Luck    Sun May 31, 11:40 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson said he has regained his passion for the game because of the opportunity to play with QB Andrew Luck, and he called Luck 'smart as hell.'

Footballguys view: It's easy to see why Johnson got frustrated in Houston catching passes from below-average quarterbacks. With the Colts, Johnson has a chance to win a Super Bowl. He'll be a big part of their high-powered passing offense in 2015. His current ADP is WR17 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Indianapolis Colts rookie WR Phillip Dorsett signed his four-year contract Wednesday, May 27. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is a fantastic talent, but finding targets this year could be a problem. He's got the speed to get on top of the defense in a hurry, and Dorsett does a good job of looking passes in over his shoulder. Dorsett will compete for a spot on the depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson.

  Colts | Andrew Luck impressed by Phillip Dorsett    Sun May 24, 08:27 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett has impressed QB Andrew Luck with his ability to quickly learn the offensive scheme. 'It's definitely not too big for him,' Luck said. 'He fits in very, very well.'

Footballguys view: We love Dorsett's natural ability as a playmaker at the wide receiver position. We question how many targets the rookie will be able to get on a jam-packed Colts roster. Dorsett will compete with Duron Carter and Donte Moncrief for the WR3 job behind T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson. If Dorsett wins that job, he'll also be splitting targets with tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.

  Colts | Andre Johnson to have big role for Colts?    Sat May 23, 03:15 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson will play a significant part in the Colts' offense this season, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Johnson is out of the cluster-you-know-what that is the Texans QB situation, and now he gets to catch passes from Andrew Luck. We're expecting a resurgence from the veteran this season. His current ADP is WR19 (4.06) in 12-team PPR leagues. He was the 12th-best fantasy receiver in 2013, and his production might put him around the top 15 in 2015.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to compete with WRs Donte Moncrief, Duron Carter and Vincent Brown for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp. Dorsett is also expected to be a candidate for the kick and punt returner jobs.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is certainly talented, but finding playing time for the rookie could prove to be difficult with this jam-packed group. Throw in tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen and it means Dorsett will have an even more difficult time finding targets. Watch this battle unfold throughout training camp and the preseason. The Colts are going to be a pass-happy offense--and you want the right piece of that action.

  Colts | Andre Johnson comfortable in offense    Thu May 21, 08:52 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson has made a 'pretty seamless' transition to the offense, and he has a strong grasp of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Johnson took snaps with the starters during organized team activities Wednesday, May 20.

Footballguys view: Good news for dynasty owners looking for a last season or two of production from Andre Johnson. We know he's fading, but he still nearly topped 1,000 yards last season despite a pretty bad quarterback situation in Houston. He looks to be in good position for a bounce-back year in Indianapolis with Andrew Luck throwing the ball and his current ADP hovers around the mid-fourth round for redraft purposes.

  Colts | Frank Gore transitioning smoothly    Thu May 21, 08:37 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was made a 'pretty seamless' transition to the Colts' offense and is displaying strong knowledge of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: Gore is a huge upgrade over what passed for a run game over the last few years in Indianapolis, whose last 1,000 yard rusher came in 2007. Gore is coming off of four straight 1,100 plus yard seasons, and has topped the 1,000 yard mark in eight years of his decade long career. Right now Gore's ADP is in the late third, but we feel he could give you RB2 value very easily.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett expected to help early    Thu May 14, 01:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to make an early impact on offense because of his speed, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

Footballguys view: Help early as what...a decoy? The Colts have a jam-packed group of wide receivers, and the rookie Dorsett is likely fourth in the pecking order behind T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson and Donte Moncrief. Oh yeah, throw in tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener and you have an even tighter window for potential targets. Dorsett is a fine player, we just don't know how he's going to be fantasy relevant this season unless injuries hit in front of him on the depth chart. His current ADP is WR68 (13.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen missing offseason program    Wed May 13, 08:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is missing the first four weeks of the Colts' offseason program as part of his plan to play as many as 20 games in 2015. "The high ankle sprain (from 2014) lingered a little longer then I wanted it to. I talked to (Coach Pagano) about it and there was an understanding. I've been out here for two months, just grinding, getting my body in good shape so that I can go out and the team can depend on me. Getting late in the year (2014), I had a banged up knee and a banged up ankle. They didn't feel, I didn't feel, that they could depend on me and that was frustrating because I feel as if, in every situation throughout the season, they can count me," Allen said.

Footballguys view: Allen expects to rejoin the team Monday, May 18, for the beginning of organized team activities. The Colts have a ton of weapons on offense after collecting wide receivers through the draft and free agency. These added weapons could impact the fantasy numbers that Allen puts up in 2015. His current ADP is TE10 (9.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett praised by Andrew Luck    Thu May 7, 10:50 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett received praise from QB Andrew Luck Wednesday, May 6. 'I know Phillip's going to be a stud,' Luck said. 'Runs like the wind, tracks the ball in the air, makes big plays.'

Footballguys view: Luck is correct, Dorsett is a stud with big-play ability. We like him as a prospect, but we just thought it would be better for the Colts to select an offensive or defensive lineman in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.

  Colts | Josh Robinson agrees to terms    Thu May 7, 01:26 AM

The Indianapolis Colts agreed to terms with RB Josh Robinson Wednesday, May 6. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Robinson could step in for Frank Gore on occasion and his bruising 'bowling ball' style would be a huge help on third-and-short opportunities. It's also important to keep in mind that while Gore continues to be effective, at his age the production can drop off at any time. While Robinson has little value as more than a handcuff in redraft leagues, that could change quickly.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett will be the team's kick returner in addition to his role on offense.

  Colts | Joshua Cribbs released    Fri May 1, 06:01 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Joshua Cribbs was released Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Well, as they drafted Phillip Dorsett on Thursday, this comes as no surprise. The bottom of the depth chart gets pushed. He's not as quick or deadly returning kicks so his value has been reduced quite a bit.

Miami (Fla.) WR Phillip Dorsett was selected 29th overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: These toys around Andrew Luck are awesome, but there were serious holes at other--more important--positions the team could've filled. Dorsett joins a cramped group of wide receivers including T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief and Duron Carter. It will be tough for him to make any sort of impact early on.


  Colts | Jerrell Freeman signs tender    Mon Apr 27, 09:55 AM

Indianapolis Colts LB Jerrell Freeman signed his restricted free-agent tender Monday, April 27.

Footballguys view: Freeman had held off signing his tender as he wanted a new long-term deal with the Colts. The deadline to sign his tender is Friday, and Freeman had no leverage as zero teams showed interest in signing him away.
