If you’ve yet to have your fantasy draft, it’s undoubtedly right around the corner. Although the Colts offense hasn’t had a massive reconstruction in comparison to the defense, the running back and receiver positions have been altered enough to warrant the conversation.
Jake Arthur, from Pro Football Spot, joined me today to run through everything you need to know about the Colts fantasy value for the upcoming season.
Marlon Mack isn’t expected to carry a significant role in his rookie season, but Robert Turbin presents an interesting option in addition to Frank Gore still being the unquestioned starter at the position.
Taking a look at the receivers one must wonder if T.Y. Hilton can match his yardage production from 2016 with a healthy Donte Moncrief coming back in such a pivotal year. Also, wondering if Moncrief can be as productive in the red zone with the addition of Kamar Aiken serving as another option for Luck inside the 20 yard line.
Most of us expect Chester Rogers to continue his upward trend, but can he do enough to be a realistic option in most fantasy drafts?
We can’t forget the new-look defense. Right now the unit isn’t getting much attention nationally and I don’t know that much of that will change until they prove it on the field. They do, however, present a real possibility of having an improved run defense, and it’s hard to think they could be any worse than last year in forcing turnovers.
Does Adam Vinatieri get the same respect he has in years past as he ages? And how much will the perceived added depth on defense improve the Colts special teams aspect of their defensive value for fantasy owners?
All of these questions are answered and much more on today’s Colts Cast.
