Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) will be a "full-go" at the start of training camp next month, according to general manager Chris Ballard. "He'll be full-go. He was full-go all the way up until the last day of OTAs, and we had two heavy throwing sessions the two days before, and so we backed off a little on the last day," Ballard said.
Huddle Up: Richardson added that "everything has been smooth sailing so far." The second-year quarterback was limited to only four games as a rookie and battled different injuries even for the short time he played before the shoulder injury knocked him out for the year. If (and it is a big if) he can stay healthy, Richardson has overall QB1 upside in 2024.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson said he plans to work out with some of the wide receivers on the roster before the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Ricardson missed most of the 2023 season because of an injury, so it would help him to get some extra work in with the receivers before the season. He is a valuable fantasy option because of his running and passing abilities and probably will be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) rested on the final day of minicamp practice Thursday, June 6, due to shoulder soreness.
Huddle Up: Richardson is close to being fully healthy, but there are still some hurdles to clear. As long as he's ready to go for training camp, Richardson is a high-upside QB1 option in fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) will not participate in any of the practices this week because of a knee injury. Head coach Shane Steichen said Pittman is being held out as a precaution.
Huddle Up: Pittman will receive some extra time to rest his knee and should be fine for the start of training camp. He will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Colts and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trey Sermon is "quite clear" the backup running back to Jonathan Taylor, according to sources Saturday, June 1.
Huddle Up: Sermon won't have a valuable profile for fantasy managers as long as Taylor is healthy, but he may have some handcuff value if he does win the RB2 job.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jelani Woods (hamstring) told reporters Thursday, May 31, that he feels "more explosive" coming off a hamstring injury that claimed his entire 2023 season.
Huddle Up: Woods can be an intriguing option for fantasy football considering his elite athleticism and Shane Steichen's history of using the tight end position. However, he's a streaming option right now until he proves he can be a stable asset for fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor did not participate in the voluntary workout Thursday, May 30, because of a personal issue.
Huddle Up: Taylor is one of the better running backs in the NFL when healthy and should see plenty of touches in each game. He will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues this upcoming season.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) remained out of practice on Thursday, May 30. Pittman was injured on May 22 when he bumped knees with another player during a voluntary workout.
Huddle Up: Head coach Shane Steichen noted Pittman should be fine after the injury occurred, so there is no cause for alarm here. The likelihood is that Pittman will not see the field again until training camp in about six weeks. The veteran should be a serviceable WR2 in most fantasy leagues, although he will face more competition for targets this year than he did in 2023.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) isn't expected to change his playing style after suffering a season-ending injury in 2023. "Changing my game and my play style? I don't feel like there's anything wrong with my play style," Richardson said at OTAs on Wednesday, May 22.
Huddle Up: Richardson's rushing ability is what can separate him from the rest of the quarterbacks in fantasy. Though it may lead to more injury opportunities, the second-year quarterback is a QB1 option with high upside if he stays healthy.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) bumped knees with another player during the voluntary workout Wednesday, May 22, but head coach Shane Steichen said Pittman should be fine.
Huddle Up: The Colts may keep Pittman on the sideline for the rest of the offseason, but he appears to be in no danger of missing the start of training camp. He is the main option in the passing game for the Colts and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Josh Downs had at least four receptions and at least six targets in six of his first eight games, but after suffering a knee injury in Week 9, he had three or fewer receptions in six of his final eight games and had three targets or less five times in that span.
Huddle Up: Although Downs was able to play through the injury, his production suffered a noticeable decline. He should be healthy heading into 2024, but the Colts did add Adonai Mitchell in the draft. Despite the potential he showed as a rookie, Downs is probably no more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trey Sermon is the "early leader" to be the primary backup to RB Jonathan Taylor, according to James Boyd of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Sermon hasn't done much since being drafted in 2021, but Taylor has missed time in each of the past two seasons. Zack Moss was a useful option in Taylor's place last season, so Sermon could be worth stashing as a handcuff.

Indianapolis Colts WR Josh Downs said he has been working on improving his route running and hopes for a big jump in play this upcoming season since he will understand the offense better.
Huddle Up: Downs posted 771 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie season but could earn a bigger role in the offense if he improves his play. He likely will be the slot receiver for the Colts this upcoming season but may not be more than a No. 4 receiver in some leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is expected to have minimal restrictions during the offseason workout program, according to sources Sunday, May 5. The Colts be cautious with his workload, but Richardson wants to get started.
Huddle Up: Richardson has been making steady progress with his throwing program and should be ready to go whenever the Colts deem him fit. He's a QB1 with high upside if he can stay healthy.

Texas WR Adonai Mitchell was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 52nd overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Mitchell may be eased into the offense as a rookie but could see a handful of targets in each game this upcoming season. He can be selected in fantasy leagues but probably will be on the bench most weeks. He should have more value in a year or two.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is up to 40 throws per day as a part of his rehab program, according to sources Monday, April 8.
Huddle Up: Richardson seems ready to partake in the spring workouts and if all goes well, he should be a fringe QB1 with upside due to his rushing abilities.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is expected to be ready for spring workouts, according to sources Monday, March 25.
Huddle Up: This is good news for Richardson's development after he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in October. Richardson is a fringe QB1 option with the upside to be a potential league-winner due to his rushing ability.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Michael Pittman Jr. agreed to a three-year deal Monday, March 11, with the Colts worth a maximum of $71 million. The deal includes $46 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Pittman was the WR14 in PPR leagues last year, and as his quarterback situation improves, his fantasy standing could blossom as well. He's a great WR2 for now.

Indianapolis Colts LB Zaire Franklin agreed to a three-year, $31.26 million extension Monday, March 11.
Huddle Up: He may not carry a ton of name value on the surface, but if you're in an IDP league, you know he's a legit LB1. He had an astounding 179 total tackles last season and was ranked No. 7 at the LB position despite missing a game.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco said he is he interested in re-signing with the Browns this offseason but also will look for a team that will give him the chance to play in 2024.
Huddle Up: Flacco likely will test free agency to see if he has a chance to compete for a starting job with a team this offseason, but it seems like there is a good chance he remains with the Browns if he must take a backup role. He played well as the starter for the Browns this past season but will not have fantasy value if he does not start for a team.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery but there is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Shane Steichen. He has been able to throw as part of his rehab.
Huddle Up: Richardson probably will not do a lot during offseason workouts but probably will be ready for the start of training camp. He was valuable fantasy performer before the injury and likely will be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next season if healthy.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year on March 13, but a return to Cleveland reportedly remains his first choice. To that end, his agent and the team met with each other at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine last week to discuss the possibility of him playing with the Browns for another season.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery, but general manager Chris Ballard said there is no timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Richardson probably will be limited during offseason workouts but probably will be available for training camp. He was playing very well before the injury and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues next season.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco is unlikely to return to the Browns next season, according to Zac Jackson of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Flacco was the QB5 in one fewer game over the last 5 weeks of the season. If he has the chance to start for someone as a bridge quarterback, he'll be sought after in two-QB leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) resumed throwing on Tuesday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: Richardson underwent season-ending shoulder surgery after playing only four games as a rookie. The No. 4 overall pick told reporters in December that he is "progressing way faster than everyone thought" he would. Given the timing of his injury and surgery, it would seem reasonable to expect him back ahead of training camp. Assuming he has learned his lesson and does a better job of avoiding contact as a NFL sophomore, fantasy managers should feel great about him being a high-end QB1 in 2024.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco said he wants to play in the NFL next season.
Huddle Up: Flacco played very well after taking over as the Browns starting quarterback, but it is not known if he will be able to find a starting job next season. He could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in some leagues next season if he starts for a team.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Michael Pittman Jr. likely will be a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term contract, in the opinion of ColtsWire's Cody Manning.
Huddle Up: Pittman is one of the better receivers in the NFL and likely will remain with the Colts for at least one more season. He will continue to be the focal point in the passing game and will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) said he doesn't need to overhaul his style of play despite suffering an injury last year. "But I don't think I have to change the way I play," Richardson said. "Just being a little smarter."
Huddle Up: Richardson battled injuries throughout his rookie season and only appeared in four games. He did flash his upside in his limited action, accounting for seven total touchdowns with four coming on the ground. Richardson is an injury risk, but his potential as a runner gives him a QB1 ceiling.

Cleveland Browns QB Joe Flacco (calf) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Flacco has been outstanding since becoming the starter for the Browns. He will have all of his pass catchers available this week and can be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.
