Texas QB Sam Ehlinger was selected in the sixth round (218th pick) of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Ehlinger threw for 11,436 yards with 94 touchdowns against 27 interceptions in his four years at Texas. He'll compete for the backup job behind Carson Wentz, and could get playing time if Wentz's struggles from 2020 with the Philadelphian Eagles continue early.

Indianapolis Colts restricted free-agent WR Zach Pascal signed his second-round tender Monday, April 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Pascal had a 49-629-5 line last season, which was nearly identical to 2019. He will serve as depth at the back end of drafts as a WR4 or WR5.

Free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton (Colts) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $10 million - including $8 million guaranteed - to remain with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday, March 24.
Huddle Up: The Colts are essentially bringing the band back together at receiver with Hilton, Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal currently slotted to be the top four options again. Hilton got off to a dreadful start in 2020 before going on a bit of a touchdown binge late in the season. The addition of Carson Wentz should theoretically benefit a field-stretching wideout like Hilton, although the Colts could easily decide to build their passing attack around Pittman and Campbell instead. Hilton should be viewed as a WR4 with an equal amount of upside and risk heading into drafts this summer.

Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz received a $10 million roster bonus Friday, March 19.
Huddle Up: Wentz has a playoff roster around him, but he could use some stability at receiver. The line in front of him is great, and he could return to QB1 form in fantasy.

Free-agent RB Marlon Mack (Colts) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 17, worth $2 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jonathan Taylor will continue to be the main running back for the Colts, but Mack will see a handful of touches each game if he can recover from his torn Achilles. He can be a handcuff to Taylor or a late round pick in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts restricted free-agent WR Zach Pascal received the second-round tender offer Tuesday, March 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Pascal is coming off a career year and could have a bigger role depending on what the team does with T.Y. Hilton. He has a chance to be a No. 4 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton 'could be in play' for the Green Bay Packers if he hits free agency, according to Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler of
Huddle Up: Hilton's days as a No. 1 option are probably behind him, but his fantasy value would receive a big boost if he lines up across from Davante Adams with Aaron Rodgers under center.
Posted 3/12/2021 8:34 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) is making good progress in his recovery and plans to be ready for the start of training camp, according to a source. He will test the free-agent market this offseason.
Huddle Up: Mack may not be able to find a starting job this offseason but can be a part of a committee for a team. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation because Mack can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy back depending on his situation.
Posted 2/27/2021 4:58 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines was third among running backs in the league with 77 targets in 2020.
Huddle Up: Hines was 18th at the position in PPR leagues, and he could stand to improve on those numbers with Carson Wentz under center. Hines will be an undervalued RB2 in PPR leagues.
Posted 2/25/2021 11:25 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton hopefully will end his career with the Colts, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Hilton will be a free agent this offseason, but there is a good chance that he re-signs with the Colts. He had a solid second half of the season and likely will be a regular contributor no matter where he plays in 2021. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/25/2021 10:56 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) is rehabbing his injured Achilles tendon at the team's facility.
Huddle Up: Mack probably will have to find another team since the Colts have Jonathan Taylor and may not be able to find a starting job. Fantasy players can monitor his status because he can have fantasy value depending on his role.
Posted 2/19/2021 7:13 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts Jonathan Taylor in 2020 became the fifth rookie running back since 2000 to finish his first season with at least 1,100 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns while averaging at least five yards per carry.
Huddle Up: Taylor finished strong with five straight 19-fantasy-point plus games to end the regular season and wound up with the sixth most total PPR points at the position. He's a strong back-end RB1 to consider in drafts this offseason.
Posted 2/18/2021 8:41 pm UTC
Incoming Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz was not a trade target for the New England Patriots, according to a source. The Colts have agreed to acquire Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: The Patriots likely will have a new quarterback next season, but it is not known if they will add a quarterback in a trade, free agency or the NFL Draft. The Patriots do not have a great group of pass catchers, so their starting quarterback likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Posted 2/18/2021 4:55 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was acquired by the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Feb. 18, in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-round pick. If Wentz's playtime is 75 percent or better next season, the second-rounder becomes a first-round pick. It would also become a first-rounder if Wentz plays at least 70 percent and the Colts make the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Wentz will land with a playoff-ready roster and will have a great offensive line in front of him. This setup gives him as good of a chance as any to return to QB1 form in fantasy.
Posted 2/15/2021 9:25 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is not receiving trade interest from the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have Drew Lock as their starter but likely will look for an upgrade at the position during the offseason. Lock played well at times in 2020 but would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts next season.
Posted 2/10/2021 6:34 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is being shopped to other teams, but the Eagles are not moving on their asking price and are not receiving the offers they are looking for from teams, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears are believed to be the frontrunners for Wentz, but he is still part of the Eagles at this point. There is a good chance that he will be traded at some point this offseason, which will make Jalen Hurts the starter for the Eagles. Both Wentz and Hurts probably will be No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks in 2021.
Posted 2/09/2021 4:03 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has not been the focal point of any recent trade inquiries from the Washington Football Team, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.
Huddle Up: Even though Philadelphia traded Donovan McNabb to Washington years ago, intra-division trades are incredibly rare - especially when it involves a younger quarterback. It's also possible Washington doesn't see Wentz as much of an upgrade over what it might be able to acquire in the draft, especially if it costs multiple first-rounders as has been reported in some places.
Posted 2/08/2021 8:04 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz may be traded in the next day or two, according to a source. The Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts are believed to be the frontrunners for Wentz with an unidentified team also in the mix.
Huddle Up: Wentz lost his starting job to Jalen Hurts and likely will be playing with a new team next season. Hurts probably is the leading candidate to start for the Eagles next season but may need to compete for the starting job during camp. Wentz has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on where he ends up, while Hurts can be at least a No. 2 quarterback.
Posted 2/06/2021 8:40 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is on the trade block, and the Eagles are reportedly asking for a pair of first-round draft picks in exchange. That has led some teams to lose interest, according to Greg Bedard of the Boston Sports Journal.
Huddle Up: That's a steep price for a QB with a considerable cap hit coming off a hideous season, but it sounds like a team or two may pay that price -- or at least come close.
Posted 2/05/2021 5:42 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is close to being traded, according to an NFL source Friday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: Wentz took a huge step backward last season, throwing for only 16 TDs and a league-high 15 interceptions while averaging only 6.0 yards per attempt. Despite Wentz's balky contract, the QB quest remains strong, and it sounds like there is a team (or teams) who believe the 28-year-old QB can be turned around.
Posted 2/04/2021 4:44 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has been the subject of calls fielded by the team from interested suitors. The Eagles haven't shopped him, but they are listening.
Huddle Up: Wentz has yet to return to his MVP form after injuries curtailed his ascension. He'll be a QB2 in fantasy regardless of his uniform next year.
Posted 1/29/2021 5:56 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Friday, Jan. 29 in his introductory news conference that he's in quarterback evaluation mode with QBs Carson Wentz and Jalen Hurts. 'Naming a starter, that hasn't even crossed my mind,' Sirianni said.
Huddle Up: If Wentz isn't traded -- and his contract would make it somewhat tough -- then expect one of the most discussed QB battles of the offseason to take place in Philly.
Posted 1/27/2021 8:36 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton is a player owner Jim Irsay would like to re-sign this offseason, but Irsay said he is not sure how free agency will play out.
Huddle Up: Hilton had a disappointing first half of the 2020 season but played very well during the second half of the season. He finished the season with 762 yards and five touchdowns. He probably will receive interest from a few teams and will have fantasy value in 2021 no matter where he plays.
Posted 1/14/2021 6:45 pm UTC
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.
Posted 1/08/2021 12:35 am UTC
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.
Posted 1/07/2021 3:30 am UTC
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
