Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is being viewed by head coach Frank Reich as the team's workhorse in the backfield, according to Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star.
Huddle Up: Mack rushed for 908 yards and nine touchdowns last season while adding 103 yards and one touchdown as a receiver. Nyheim Hines should handle the majority of third-down duties in 2019, but Mack could still return plenty of value as a high-end RB2.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will sit out the team's minicamp this week with a calf strain, head coach Frank Reich announced Tuesday, June 11.
Huddle Up: That means we don't expect to see Luck on the field until training camp, but it's still not enough to ding his rankings as one of the elite fantasy QBs.
Posted 6/07/2019 2:06 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to reach '1,000 all-purpose yards' in 2019.
Huddle Up: Hines was a weapon in the passing attack last year, but he could have a hard time matching his total of 63 receptions last year after the Colts added Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell. He's only worth a speculative add late in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) may be able to participate in the minicamp next week, but head coach Frank Reich said the team will not be worried if Luck misses those practices as well.
Huddle Up: Luck does not need to on the field during training camp, so he probably would be limited if he practices during minicamp. He is coming off a terrific 2018 season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (6-foot-5, 267 pounds) took first-team reps at mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 4. He drew praise while filling in for Jack Doyle (hip) and Eric Ebron (groin). 'Watching him grow is like watching your son become something special,' Ebron said. 'He's gonna play such a huge role this year.'
Huddle Up: Alie-Cox, a former college basketball star, caught seven of 13 targets last season for 133 yards and two touchdowns. He won't be a serious fantasy option unless Doyle and/or Ebron were to miss time in 2019, but he could be worth stashing in dynasty formats with Ebron under contract for just one more year.
Posted 6/04/2019 4:06 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was not participating in OTA workouts Tuesday, June 4, as he begins a third straight week on the sideline with a calf strain.
Huddle Up: While it's certainly not good news, a calf strain is a far cry from Luck's throwing-shoulder ailments of recent offseasons, so don't hesitate in selecting him as one of the first few QBs off the board in your drafts.
Posted 5/29/2019 9:05 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) said he is able to run routes as part of his rehab.
Huddle Up: Cain appears to be on track for training camp and probably is competing for the No. 3 receiver job behind T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Fantasy players will need to monitor Cain during the preseason because he could be a late-round pick in some leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in practices this week because of his calf injury, according to head coach Frank Reich. Reich said Luck could play if the team had a game this weekend, but the team wants to be cautious with the injury.
Huddle Up: Luck does not really need to be on the practice field until training camp, so the team is taking things slow. He is coming off a terrific 2018 season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues this upcoming season.
Posted 5/26/2019 1:05 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess knows how to run a lot of QB Andrew Luck's favorite routes, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Funchess never seemed to to put it all together in Carolina, but if he can establish himself as the No. 2 option across from T.Y. Hilton, WR3 production isn't out of the question.
Posted 5/21/2019 11:05 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Hilton is expected to be limited this offseason but should be a full participant during training camp. He has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/16/2019 1:05 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain's (knee) recovery from knee surgery is going well, according to general manager Chris Ballard, but Ballard said Cain isn't likely to return to full strength until midway through the regular season.
Huddle Up: Cain is going to have a tough time securing a regular role in the offense if he is operating at less than 100 percent. He still has some appeal in keeper formats, but it sounds like he can be left on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.
Posted 5/15/2019 8:05 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) likely will be limited during offseason workouts because the team wants him to rest after dealing with ankle injuries last season.
Huddle Up: Hilton has posted at least 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons and will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Colts. He can be considered a No. 1 receiver in all leagues this upcoming season.
Posted 5/07/2019 5:05 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron said Tuesday, May 7, he is aiming for Rob Gronkowski's single-season tight end-record of 17 receiving touchdowns. 'I gotta go get 17,' said Ebron, who had 13 receiving TDs and one rushing score in 2018.
Huddle Up: Ebron's 13 TDs came on only 66 total receptions -- a rate that realistically isn't sustainable, especially with fellow Indy TE Jack Doyle expected to be healthier after missing 10 of 16 games last season. Still value him as a low-end TE1, though.
Posted 4/30/2019 5:04 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has high hopes for the team's offense in 2019. 'This offense is going to be scary,' Hilton said Tuesday, April 30.
Huddle Up: Hilton missed two games in 2018 and was somewhat limited in others, but still caught 76 of 120 targets for 1,270 yards and six TDs to finish as a WR2. He should challenge, though, to return to the WR1 ranks this coming season.
Posted 4/30/2019 2:04 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, April 30.
Huddle Up: Ware will provide depth, but he could be a solid short-yardage option behind Marlon Mack in the offense. Take a look at him as an RB5 in traditional leagues, and he receives a boost in TD-only leagues.
Posted 4/19/2019 4:04 pm UTC
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.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as 12 of Ebron's tight end-leading 14 TDs, including one rushing, came in the red zone. However, just be sure not to overpay for Ebron in fantasy drafts this summer as he only totaled 12 TDs in his four NFL seasons prior to 2018.
Posted 4/07/2019 4:04 pm UTC
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.
Huddle Up: Even if the Colts add another wide receiver this offseason, Hilton figures to remain a top target for Andrew Luck and is a high-end WR2 consideration in drafts.
Posted 3/29/2019 6:03 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack can 'carry the load' and 'play on all three downs,' according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Huddle Up: It's not as if the Colts have another option at the moment that can legitimately push Mack for every-down work, although Nyheim Hines was drafted last spring to operate in a satellite-back role and will probably continue to function in that way. Still, it's hard to ignore what Mack did when he was finally healthy last year, carrying 218 times for 1,068 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games (including the playoffs). He carries RB1 upside into 2019 but will probably come with an RB2 price tag.
Posted 3/29/2019 1:03 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) is still on track to return in time for training camp, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: With the signing of Devin Funchess and the emergence of Eric Ebron, Doyle isn't a lock to produce steady numbers. That being said, Andrew Luck loves his tight ends, so Doyle could be worth a look as a TE2.
Posted 3/29/2019 1:03 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess was a player that head coach Frank Reich pushed the front office to pursue in free agency. 'I'm so excited about Devin,' Reich said. 'I mean, when I watch his tape, what I see is a big man who is really athletic.'
Huddle Up: Funchess is coming off a down year, but he will be given every opportunity to become the No. 2 option in the passing attack. Consider him a WR4 with upside.
Posted 3/18/2019 2:03 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Ware can still be an RB4 if he lands in the right timeshare to run between the tackles.
Posted 3/11/2019 11:03 pm UTC
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.
Huddle Up: The Colts have been looking for a No. 2 receiver, so Funchess could take over that role next season. He is coming off a disappointing season where he posted only 549 yards and four touchdowns. Funchess could be a possible late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/02/2019 5:03 am UTC
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess is referring to himself as a 'former Carolina Panther' and 'now looking for a new team.' After an unproductive season the team is not expected to re-sign him.
Huddle Up: Funchess racked up 63 grabs for 840 yards and a career-best eight scores in 2017, but he tumbled back to mediocrity with just 44 catches, 549 yards, four touchdowns and a career-low 12.5 yards per grab last season over 14 outings. He might land a new job, but he has a long way to go to prove himself to fantasy owners again.
Posted 2/27/2019 10:02 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) is on track for the start of training camp, according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Huddle Up: Cain is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but could compete for the No. 2 receiver job during camp depending on what the team does at the position. He can be a late-round option in fantasy leagues if he is a top-three receiver for the Colts.
Posted 2/27/2019 6:02 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) underwent hip surgery this offseason and is doing fine. The goal is for him to be recovered in time for training camp.
Huddle Up: Doyle was sidelined for 10 games because of the hip issue, while counterpart Eric Ebron blossomed. Ebron is the Colts tight end to draft, but Doyle may represent a sleeper if he's full go in camp and avoids aggravation.
Posted 2/17/2019 1:02 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) will have a 'chance to become a big-play threat' in his second season, according to Mike Sando of
Huddle Up: Cain was turning heads in training camp as a rookie prior to his knee injury, but he could pick up where he left off in 2019, especially now that Andrew Luck has returned to form. Cain could be a great target in dynasty formats during the offseason.
Posted 2/08/2019 2:02 am UTC
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess could be an option for the Baltimore Ravens because his size would allow him to be an effective blocker when QB Lamar Jackson scrambles, according to Clifton Brown of
Huddle Up: Funchess would also be a big target for Jackson in the passing game, but after seeing the run-heavy approach the Ravens adopted with Jackson as the starter, it is hard to see any Baltimore receiver being a great fantasy option in 2019.
Posted 2/03/2019 1:02 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was named the 2018 Comeback Player of the Year Saturday, February 2, becoming the first player in franchise history to earn the honor.
Huddle Up: Luck's 39 touchdown passes ranked second in the NFL, and he set career highs in completions and completion percentage. He has re-established himself as a high-end QB1 heading into 2019.
Posted 1/25/2019 11:01 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri said he is not sure if 2019 will be his final season. He said he could consider continuing his playing career if he is productive in 2019.
Huddle Up: Vinatieri made 23 of his 27 field goals this season and has been one of the more consistent kickers over the last several years. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
