Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Football Outlook

The 2013 was a great season for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. Not only did they reach the playoffs for the second consecutive season, they won their division in dominating fashion, going 6-0 against their division rivals. The Colts averaged a little more than 24 points a game last season, and scary enough, the offense will be even better this season. Not only will Reggie...

T-Rich Just Not Running Well

Colts running back Trent Richardson ran the ball for 14 yards on four carries.Fantasy Spin:After struggling in the first two preseason games, Richardson seemed to run with a purpose on Saturday. He ran for five and eight yards on his first two carries, but then ran for one yard in his next two carries combined. He is still a risky pick in the fifth round, which is his ADP. Tell me...

Indianapolis Colts vs. New Orleans Saints: Three Things to Watch

When I sat down to do my “Players We Watched” this week, the players I chose kept being extremely boring. Basically, it would have made for a waste of a post.

Colts GM: Richardson must “answer the bell”

[Credit AP]The clock is ticking on Trent Richardson in Indianapolis. It’s been a little more than two weeks since Richardson promised a new and improved version of himself for the 2014 season, and so far this preseason, the former No. 3 overall pick has done little to quell the fears of Colts fans, or the team’s front office. Now, with two weeks left before the regular season...

Colts GM: Trent Richardson needs to answer the bell, do his job

By any measure, running back Trent Richardson has been a huge disappointment. The Colts gave up a first-round pick to get him and he responded by averaging 2.9 yards per carry last season. Impossibly, Richardson's been worse this preseason, managing just 2.4 yards per carry. For months, the coaching staff and front office have offered excuses for why Richardson has struggled...
