Roster Moves: Colts place WR Marcus Johnson on IR and sign WR Dontrelle Inman

The Colts continue to struggle to keep healthy wide receivers. They have sent Marcus Johnson to IR after he was injured on a blatantly uncalled personal foul in which he was tackled several yards out of bounds. There is not a “good” way to end up on IR, but this one has to sting for Johnson who was robbed of an opportunity by a cheap play.

We also signed CB D.J. Killings to the...

Practice squad players the Colts should target

Colts need to add depth desperately, which players among the league’s practice squads should they consider?

The 2018 season has not gone according to plan for the Indianapolis Colts. After starting the year 1-5 and having a laundry list of players on the injury report week after week, there are a few changes that need to be made. Many fans and writers have proposed exploring the trade market, as many big named players are rumored to be available. That is great in theory but trading in the...

NFL Power Rankings Week 7: Injuries, inexperience keeping the Colts at the bottom

The Colts dropped another game, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they’re hanging out at the bottom of everyone’s rankings again this week. There are a lot of reasons for their struggles. Youth and inexperience, injuries, and significant talent gaps at some positions have hampered their success all season.

At some point, you are what your record says you are, and what the Colts record says is that they are one of the worst teams in football. The good news is that the AFC has...

Report: Colts work out Junior Galette, Thomas Rawls

Junior Galette‘s spent the first six games of the season as a free agent, publicly lamenting his misstep in spurning a Redskins offer earlier this offseason. The Colts are taking a look at the veteran edge defender, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports (on Twitter), while also examining Thomas Rawls. Galette previously auditioned for the Rams, but the edge rusher-thin juggernaut opted not to sign him over the summer. He missed all of the 2015 and ’16 seasons because of preseason injuries...

Colts vs Jets: Winners and Losers from week 6

Another week, another disappointing loss. The Colts now sit at 1-5, somehow not even nearly out of the divisional race, but also not providing much in the way of hope that they have what it takes to right the ship. Let’s take a look at some of the winners and losers from this week’s game against the New York Jets.

Winners Andrew Luck

Let’s take a minute to appreciate how good Andrew Luck has been. The guy is back from what could have been a career ending shoulder injury, and he is...

Colts vs Jets: Week 6 snap counts

Now that the dust has settled and we have had a chance to take a look at the Colts week 6 game against the Jets, it is time to take a look at the snap counts and see if there is any information to be gleaned from them. Let’s get to it.

Notes

It was interesting to get a look at the running back snaps with all of the backs healthy. Nyheim Hines got double Marlon Mack’s snaps, and Mack was the next closest RB. This is proving how valuable Hines is as both a runner and as a pass catching...

Poll: Impact plays from Colts vs. Jets

In my estimation this was easily the most disappointing loss of the season. I know, I predicted a Jets win but I really wanted to be wrong. The Colts were outplayed in all three phases of the game today and that’s what’s so disappointing. In weeks past there was always some bright spot, Darius Leonard or Andrew Luck, the defense played hard and racked up a lot of sacks. Something. Anything. Today’s loss wasn’t like the ones before it. Even still, I’m going to be taking a look at...

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Colts suffer fourth straight loss, losing to the Jets 34 - 42

The Indianapolis Colts cannot get out of their own way. Four turnovers was simply too much to overcome, and it often will be. The injury situation has become so absurd that Indianapolis finished the game with only two healthy receivers. Tight end Eric Ebron was clearly on a pitch count due to injury.

On the positive end, Andrew Luck was kept fairly clean throughout the entire game. The second half saw Marlon Mack and the ground game come to life. There were a couple of occasions where the...

2018 Week 5: Colts vs. Jets 2nd Half Open Thread — Colts trail 13 - 23

The first half of football was a pretty sad competition between two teams who appeared interested in performing worse than the other. Nothing the Jets did in the first half makes them look like a particularly good football team. Batted balls resulting in touchdowns, fumbles in your own territory. Every advantage the Colts could give the Jets in the first half, they did.

The result is trailing 13-23 going into the half with the chance to kick the ball away to New York to start the second...

2018 Week 6: Indianapolis Colts vs. New York Jets Open Thread

If the Indianapolis Colts want to keep hope alive for the 2018 regular season, the team must find a way to win in the Meadowlands. Frankly, the team needs to reel off a convincing win and play a full game on both sides of the ball. It isn’t enough for fans to realize that the team is better than its record. Ultimately, a team’s record will define what they can do and determine any hope of making it into the playoffs.

The good news for Colts fans is that the AFC South is a mess. The...

Fantasy Football Start or Sit analysis for Week 6

Quarterbacks: Jameis Winston and Baker Mayfield (Start); Alex Smith (Sit)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are simply a one-dimensional offense, and that probably won’t change anytime soon with the unit struggling to find a consistent No. 1 running back threat. With the Bucs averaging just 69.5 yards a game on 3.1 per attempt, Winston will be in prime position to throw the ball close to 40 times. The Bucs face an Atlanta team that is struggling on defense as well, making this game potentially a...

Fantasy Football: Last minute waiver wire pickups owners need for Week 6

Jameis Winston, Quarterback, Tampa Buccaneers

The Tampa Buccaneers simply have no answer at running back, struggling to find a consistent running game by averaging just 69.5 yards a game on 3.1 per attempt. Tampa Bay’s terrible defense puts them in situations where the offense has to throw the ball consistently. With Ryan Fitzpatrick’s magic wearing off, it’s now Winston’s time to take over the offense that leads the league in passing yards per game (363.2).

Winston is available in...
