2015 Week 5: Colts Fantasy Football Preview vs. Texans

 The Indianapolis Colts find themselves in another interesting position on Thursday night against the Houston Texans, as the Colts may be without Pro Bowl quarterback Andrew Luck for the second week in a row. Though without their signal caller, this does not kill Luck’s teammate’s fantasy value. We'll use a simple rating scale for each player, grading each from A-F. An "A"...

Three things you must know about the Indianapolis Colts for tonight’s game

It is Thursday and the Indianapolis Colts are taking part in their annual Thursday night road game. This game is a nuissance. The Colts are struggling to get all their players healthy and playing two games within five days is not helping that cause. Fans are still buzzing about the exciting overtime win last weekend. The Indianapolis Colts fan-base has adopted a terrible mind-set...

Indianapolis Colts: Using the Bunch Formation to Win

The Indianapolis Colts found something to build on with their win against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, and that something was rhythm on offense. No one is saying the dink-and-dunk offense that averaged 4.4 yards a play is key to solving the Colts offensive problems, but it’s a good starting point. Against the Houston Texans, the Atlanta Falcons focused on a couple of things...

Indianapolis Colts Numbers to Know: Week 4

 Well that was...something. The Indianapolis Colts’ 16-13 overtime win over the Jacksonville Jaguars was not exactly easy on the eyes, and even given quarterback Andrew Luck’s absence, it was hardly a convincing win. Indianapolis was actually out-gained by Jacksonville in terms of total yardage (431 to 326) and on both a per play (5.5 to 4.4) and per drive basis (33.2 to 27...

The Path to Victory: Week 4 Review

As the Indianapolis Colts looked to start 2-0 in division play, I gave two keys to focus on to help get that done. Here is how it all shook out on Sunday. Result: 16-13 victory vs Jacksonville Jaguars Offense Goal: Three or less hits on QB Actual: Nine (Six knockdowns, Three sacks) This entire section was thrown in disarray when the news of Andrew Luck sitting out broke early...

Colts Authority Daily Notebook: Christmas Comes Early

In a game the Colts had no business winning, the Jaguars chose to keep them in the game. Every time it seemed like the Jags could start to distance themselves they handed a gift the Colts in one form or another. The Jags penalties and poor execution kept the Colts within reach and ultimately helped the Colts pull out the overtime win. But a win is a win and at 2-2 the Colts sit atop...

Colts do just enough to take down the Jags 16-13 in OT

This was a game the in which the Colts sorely needed a W.  The chasm between 2-2 and 1-3 is an enormous one, but as many of us suspected during the week, Indianapolis would need to rely heavily on veteran backup Matt Hasselbeck (or as Colts radio announcer Bob Lamey continually calls him, “Hassel-back”) while Andrew Luck’s shoulder heals. This was a game of defense, a game...

Colts hoping to get tight ends more involved in offense

The Indianapolis Colts boast a pair of talented tight ends in Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, but thus far this season, the duo have been largely missing from the team's offense. Fleener, who caught 51 passes for 774 yards and eight touchdowns last season, has just one reception for five yards so far. Allen, who caught eight touchdowns of his own a year ago, has three catches for...

How Andrew Luck responded to 0-2 start last season

Who would’ve expected the Indianapolis Colts to start the season with a league-high eight turnovers and a league-low of just 21 points in their combined two games. And to top it all off Andrew Luck also has the lowest passer rating in the NFL at 58.9 Now flashback to the 2014 season when Andrew Luck rolled though Jacksonville and Tennessee with a combined eight touchdowns, one...

The Path to Victory: Week 2 Review

Last week, I gave two areas the Colts needed to find success to send them down the Path to Victory. Let’s review how they did. Result: 20-7 loss vs. NY Jets Offense Goal: 12 TE targets Actual: Zero Before you say, “Joe Reitz had a chance at a touchdown!” I’m going to stop you. Reitz is a lineman and should not have been in that situation. The coaching staff thought they could...

The Path to Victory: Week 2-New York Jets

This week in The Path to Victory we will look at what Indianapolis can do to help avoid an 0-2 start. The Jets were assembled by the coach that had the winning formula against Indy last week, Rex Ryan. Their defense still has Ryan’s fingerprints all over it. On offense, Brandon Marshall was a key offseason addition to give Ryan Fitzpatrick a large weapon in the passing game...

Indianapolis Colts: Work to be done

The Indianapolis Colts’ week 3 matchup, otherwise known as the dress rehearsal, against the St. Louis Rams was an up and down affair. The Colts started out hot both offensively and defensively, before settling into a sluggish middle of the first half. Andrew Luck and Andre Johnson connected for a touchdown early on in the game, which was very reassuring to see. Luck will need to...

Five Colts facing a make-or-break season in 2015

The stakes are high in Indianapolis the season. The Colts have assembled what they, and many observers believe, is a Super Bowl-caliber roster. If the Colts fall short, players (and perhaps coaches) will likely be held accountable. But regardless of whether Andrew Luck and company hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February, there are some members of the team that need big seasons to guarantee...

The Colts also upgraded at running back in free agency, bringing in former San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl...

Colts' Coby Fleener not worried about contract

Coby Fleener enters the final year of his contract with the Indianapolis Colts with a pretty compelling argument to make. Fleener's 129 receptions through his first three seasons are the most of any Colts' tight end in team history. For a franchise that has featured the likes of Hall of Famer John Mackey and one of Peyton Manning's favorite targets, Dallas Clark, that's quite an...
