Swoope is a last-round pick in best ball drafts, but he offers a high season-long and weekly ceiling for a minuscule cost. He has big play ability, his role should grow with the trade of Dwayne Allen, and Swoope also happens to play with Andrew Luck.
Swoope had arthroscopic knee surgery in August and is currently week-to-week.
An athletic basketball prospect-turned-tight end, Swooper earned limited playing time last year and produced. He could earn even more this year as part of the starting rotation.


Erik Swoope is another example of a former basketball player who turned into tight end. Entering his fourth year in the league, Swoope has earned more playing time and now finds himself second on the Colts tight end depth chart behind Jack Doyle. Swoope had 297 yards on 15 receptions last year (19.8 YPR) and could see an uptick in usage, especially in the red zone this season. His athleticism makes him a candidate to receive multiple touchdowns on a Colts team that has exploited tight ends in their offense. At age 25, he is entering the prime of his career with three years of experience under his belt. Swoope recently had arthroscopic knee surgery (scope) in August and is considered week to week. His Week 1 availability is not known at this time. (August 15)

Colts | Erik Swoope week-to-week (Mon Aug 14, 05:29 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Erik Swoope (knee) recently underwent a knee scope and is considered week-to-week.

Our View: Swoope never played college football as he was a basketball star at the University of Miami. He's been learning the pro game for a few years with the Colts, and we have added him in nearly every deep dynasty league we play in. At some point, Swoope has to stay healthy and start paying off for the Colts. So far that hasn't happened, so in deep dynasty leagues we'll continue to monitor his progress.
