Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Football Projections

QB Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) Like Robert Griffin, Andrew Luck should be a solid QB1 with upside as a rookie. I expect him to have better passing numbers than either Newton or Griffin, but he won’t match either of their rushing numbers, which is why Griffin has the advantage over Luck in fantasy, at least for this year. Projection: 4000 passing yards, 23 passing touchdowns, 14...

Colts claim Taylor, waive Murphy

The Indianapolis Colts claimed offensive guard Zane Taylor off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles and waived offensive guard Matt Murphy on Friday.

Photos: Rookie Wage Scale

Gone are the days when NFL rookies and their agents try to hold out and milk as much money from their new teams as possible as they miss out on rookie minicamps and other offseason workouts. Say what you want about Roger Godell, but realize that his help in the implementation of the rookie wage scale has changed the offseason in the NFL for good. This makes the overall game of football...

AFC South Pre-Season Odds Review

Perhaps no other division in the NFL will see more adversity and growing pains than the AFC South. Three teams in the division will most likely start first or second year quarterbacks in 2012. It's arguably the biggest reason why many analysts and odds makers believe that the Houston Texans will run away with the division. The Texans are heavily favored to win the division...
