Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) 'deserves a good contract,' Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, but added that he doesn't know if the team will be in position to offer the pending free agent one this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Colts certainly aren't in need after second-round rookie Jonathan Taylor's late-season emergence, leaving Mack in tough spot as a free agent running back coming off a season-ending Achilles injury. The clock, though, is on Mack's side as he'll only turn 25 in March.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers met with the general manager Chris Ballard for an hour earlier this week, Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, as Rivers heads into the offseason pondering his future. 'Do I think Philip can still play? Absolutely,' Ballard said. 'He's going to take some time, and we're going to take some time. We'll meet again in about a month.'
Huddle Up: Rivers will turn 40 before the end of next season, but can still sling it as evidenced by his eight straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards and 23 TD tosses. Fantasy-wise, though, he's now at the low end of the QB2 scale after residing in the high-end QB2/low-end QB1 range.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers said he is not sure if he will play next season.
Huddle Up: Rivers likely will take a few weeks to decide but will play with the Colts next season if he decides to continue his career. He posted solid numbers this season and can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he decides to play in 2021.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Rivers was posted only two touchdowns and two interceptions during the final two games of the regular season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but was removed from the injury report Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: The Colts had every reason to keep Taylor off his feet and away from any kind of physical contact this week after giving him 30 carries in Week 17. If the Colts are to upset the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, it will likely be because Taylor had a big hand in it. While Nyheim Hines will mix in and handle a number of snaps on passing downs, the rookie appears primed for another 20 or so touches and is a great option in playoff leagues and/or DFS.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6. He said Wednesday that he felt fine after a career-high 30 carries in Week 17, and he said he'll be 'ready to roll' for the AFC wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Taylor just missed out on the AFC Player of the Week for Week 17 after his epic performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars, rolling up 253 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries. He is a must-have fantasy option in postseason leagues and DFS play for Saturday.Kei

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers is expected to either re-sign with the Colts this offseason or decide to retire, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Rivers ranks in the top 10 in the NFL in passing yards entering Week 17 and has 23 touchdowns in 15 games. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he decides to continue his playing career.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. on Saturday, Jan. 2, cleared the league's concussion protocol and will be available to play Sunday in Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Pittman gets a green light in a must-win game for Indy, but be wary of placing too much fantasy trust in the rookie as he's failed to reach double-digit fantasy points in each of his last five games.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hilton has been playing very well over the last month or two and will have a favorable matchup this week. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Pittman still needs to be cleared by doctors before he can play but appears to have a chance to on the field in Week 17. He has been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games but has failed to post 50 yards in any of those games. He will have a favorable matchup this week but can be benched if better options are available.

Huddle Up: Rivers is still dealing with the toe injury but will be in uniform for the regular season finale. He has played very well during the second half of the season and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues since several quarterbacks will not be playing this week.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. ended up with three receptions for 38 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Pittman was outperformed by Zach Pascal and T.Y. Hilton in this one, but the future is bright for the rookie. He should scoot up draft boards heading into 2021. The Colts finish up with the Jaguars in Week 17.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle was good for season highs of four catches and 50 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Doyle has two or more grabs in three straight, and that's a season high. He has a ways to get before fantasy owners rely on him on a regular basis. The Colts host the Jaguars in Week 17. He had three grabs for 49 yards on four targets in Week 1 at Jacksonville.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton ended up with three receptions for 60 yards and seven targets in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Hilton has had a difficult season overall, but he has been healthier lately and started to jell better with Philip Rivers. He has 24 grabs for 408 yards and four touchdowns across the past five games to make amends to his fantasy owners. The Colts host the Jaguars in Week 17.

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal posted three grabs for a team-high 64 yards with a touchdown in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Pascal had two touchdowns over the first 13 games, but he has found the end zone three times across the past two outings. Despite the uptick in production, he is more of a WR5 heading into the regular season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed eight times for 44 yards in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added five receptions for 20 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Hines saw a high volume of touches, and he averaged 5.5 yards per carry. Still, as long as Jonathan Taylor remains healthy, Hines' fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Colts host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 18 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he did not have a catch on just one target.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been a solid fantasy option this season, but he has really kicked it into high gear over the past three games with 44 runs, 307 yards and five touchdowns. Rookie wall? What rookie wall? Despite playing more games than he is used to in a single, he has actually gotten stronger as the year has progressed.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 25, and is not on the injury report.
Huddle Up: Rivers is a quality QB1 option with a high floor but a lower ceiling than some other non-elite options out there. No team has given up more points to QBs in 2020 than Atlanta, although this is just the 15th-best opponent to face using data from the last five weeks.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (rest) was given the day off of practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is not on the injury report.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Rivers has been playing very well over the last month and should have some success against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues, but fantasy players in standard leagues may have better options available.

Huddle Up: Rivers is dealing with a lingering toe injury but is in no danger of missing the Week 16 game. He is averaging a little over two touchdowns per game over the last five games and could be a possible low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.
