  Colts | T.Y. Hilton coming back to Indy    Wed Mar 24, 02:56 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The market for Hilton did not develop as some thought it would so he stays with the Colts for a good price. The team had been public about their interest in retaining Hilton and they were able to get the deal done. Hilton, Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell, and Zach Pascal make up the top wide receivers for new QB Carson Wentz. We see Hilton as a WR3 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

  Colts | Indy to meet with Sammy Watkins    Mon Mar 22, 06:29 PM

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) is scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts are looking for weapons to put around new QB Carson Wentz. They let T.Y. Hilton hit free agency and would bring him back at the right price. If he's not available or a deal cannot be agreed upon, then Watkins could be an answer.

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.

Footballguys view: The Colts keep everything in place with their backfield. Jonathan Taylor will be the lead back, Nyheim Hines will be the change-of-pace back and Mack returns as a do-everything backup. This move was expected a month or so ago.

Indianapolis Colts restricted free-agent WR Zach Pascal received the second-round tender offer Tuesday, March 16, according to a source.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton likely to hit free agency    Sun Mar 14, 11:50 AM

A new contract for Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton does not appear imminent, meaning that it is likely that he will hit the open market. However, this does not necessarily mean that the Colts and Hilton don't have mutual interest in reuniting for the 2021 season.

Footballguys view: The Colts will let him shop around and see what he can get. Hilton's market won't be that hot based on where he's at with his career. He could return to the Colts if his contract number does not materialize elsewhere.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett could return to Indianapolis in 2021    Sun Mar 14, 11:45 AM

The Indianapolis Colts have not ruled out bringing back QB Jacoby Brissett as a veteran backup for QB Carson Wentz.

Footballguys view: The only other quarterback that the Colts have under contract for the 2021 season besides Wentz is QB Jacob Eason. Brissett could have some interest but nobody is going to hand him a starting quarterback job.

  Colts | Denico Autry attracting interest from multiple clubs    Sat Mar 13, 11:56 AM

Indianapolis Colts DL Denico Autry is expected to draw interest from the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and New York Jets in free agency, according to a league source. The Colts have interest in bringing him back but it is unlikely that an agreement will be reached before free agency officially gets underway Wednesday, March 17, according to a second league source.

  Colts | Marlon Mack should be ready for camp    Fri Mar 12, 03:34 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Colts could bring back Mack on a very cheap deal if he doesn't draw interest in free agency, much to the chagrin of anyone who drafted Jonathan Taylor in an early best ball draft or who is holding him in dynasty leagues.

  Colts | Jacob Eason building chemistry    Wed Mar 3, 09:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacob Eason has been holding offseason workouts with WR Michael Pittman Jr. and WR Dezmon Patmon.

Footballguys view: Eason is a developmental quarterback who is working to be a quality backup to Carson Wentz in 2021 and beyond. He's a strong-armed quarterback who can attack a defense down the field. We'll continue to monitor him in deep dynasty formats.

  Colts | Nyheim Hines targeted a ton    Sat Feb 27, 11:58 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines was third among running backs in the league with 77 targets in 2020.

Footballguys view: Good! Hines needs to be targeted that much or more going forward. The Colts have Jonathan Taylor as a lead back and Hines can work as a change-of-pace back behind him. Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues know how valuable a player like Hines can be given his role.

  Colts | Coach would like T.Y. Hilton to return    Thu Feb 25, 06:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton hopefully will end his career with the Colts, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Hilton is not the same player he used to be. The Colts want to bring him back but the price will have to be right. That means they could let him test the market and then bring him back if his contract offers aren't too outrageous.

  Colts | Marlon Mack continues rehab    Thu Feb 25, 05:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) is rehabbing his injured Achilles tendon at the team's facility.

Footballguys view: Mack is set to be a free agent when the new league year begins. The team wants to bring him back and that's sounds like a real possibility. They'll have a backfield led by Jonathan Taylor, and Nyheim Hines will get plenty of work as a receiving back. If Mack returns, it will be in a role behind those two.

  Colts | Jonathan Taylor in rare company    Fri Feb 19, 02:13 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Taylor only showed us the tip of the iceberg in terms of what he can do at the pro level. Expect his production to continue to grown, and Taylor could end up as one of the top-rushing backs in the league. The team could implement more RPO looks with new QB Carson Wentz under center.

  Colts | Indy checked in on Derek Carr    Thu Feb 18, 04:35 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr received trade interest from the Indianapolis Colts, but the Raiders said Carr was not available, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The phone has been ringing in Jon Gruden's office. Teams are checking in on Carr and being rebuffed so far. However, the calls about Marcus Mariota may be growing with Carr supposedly off the market. Mariota has a very affordable $10.7 million salary in 2021 and wants the chance to start again.

  Colts | Carson Wentz to Colts    Thu Feb 18, 11:55 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Wentz played his best football when Frank Reich was the OC for the Eagles. Now reunited with Reich, Wentz is hoping to have a bounce-back season. He was rushed far too often and looked rattled (and just plain bad) in 2020. The Colts have a much better offensive line, and we'll expect more RPO concepts to help Wentz settle down and start playing at the level he used to.

  Colts | Indy could add Zach Ertz    Sat Feb 13, 07:51 PM

Updating a previous story, the Indianapolis Colts have discussed acquiring additional players from the Philadelphia Eagles with QB Carson Wentz and could look to add TE Zach Ertz in a potential trade, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com Saturday, Feb. 13.

Footballguys view: The Eagles connection with Frank Reich means any potential trade gets tossed about as a possibility...for good reason. We'll see Ertz dealt at some point this offseason.

  Colts | Indy already made play for Carson Wentz?    Fri Feb 12, 12:45 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has been the focus of recent talks with the Indianapolis Colts, who have reportedly offered 'two second-round draft choices and maybe a third or fourth down the road,' according to longtime NFL analyst Ron Jaworski via Jeff Skversky of WPVI Philadelphia.

Footballguys view: The Eagles want more for Wentz. The Colts seem to be one of the top destinations for Wentz because of their need at quarterback (Philip Rivers retired, Jacoby Brissett a free agent) and the previous working relationship with Frank Reich. Stay tuned.

  Colts | Chris Godwin an option for Indianapolis?    Tue Feb 2, 03:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin - an impending free agent - is expected to receive interest on the open market from the Indianapolis Colts this offseason, according to Evan Massey of NFLAnalysisNet.

Footballguys view: With T.Y. Hilton set to be an unrestricted free agent, the Colts are looking for help at the wide receiver position. Godwin may be looking to work as a no.1 receiver for a new team. Buzz around the Colts indicate they would like to bring Hilton back, but the price will have to be right...especially if they make a move for Godwin.

Former Philadelphia Eagles passing game coordinator Press Taylor is expected to join the Indianapolis Colts' coaching staff in an undisclosed capacity in the coming days, according to multiple sources.

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.

Footballguys view: Irsay can hope all he wants, he needs to pay Hilton if he wants him to stay. Injuries and inconsistencies derailed Hilton's game in 2020, so perhaps his market will be a bit cooler for the veteran. We'll see what kind of interest Hilton gets as a free agent.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett will have chance to start    Sat Jan 23, 07:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will be under consideration to be the starting quarterback in 2021, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'I don't want to discount Jacoby,' Ballard said. 'We still like Jacoby Brissett and think he's a good player. Let's not take Jacoby out of the mix completely here.'

Footballguys view: Brissett is a top end backup, but he might only be an adequate starter, which would be a disappointing route for a team in a Super Bowl window to take. Brissett has some value in 2QB/Superflex leagues, but in 1QB leagues he would be a pedestrian option at best.
