2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Indianapolis Colts

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Indianapolis Colts.



Andrew Luck516.1317.4381927.416.554.7273.52.54.4262.91
Assuming Luck is under center against the Bengals in Week 1, which seems likely at this point, it will be 616 days in between meaningful games. In his past three full seasons, Luck has finished as fantasy's QB4 (2013), QB2 (2014) and QB4 (2016). If he can stay healthy for the entire season, there is plenty of profit potential for those willing to roll the dice on Luck.
Jacoby Brissett32.919.622410.

Running Backs


Marlon Mack156.8650.74.224.6218.911.2115.76
With Frank Gore no longer in the picture, Mack is the favorite for the largest share of the backfield's workload, but Indianapolis drafted running backs Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the fourth and fifth rounds, respectively. Mack had 583 YFS, 21 receptions and four touchdowns with an average of 3.8 YPC as a rookie in 2017.
Nyheim Hines80.6354.61.630.1276.91.50.880.15
Drawing some comparisons to Darren Sproles, Hines is an explosive (4.38 forty) athlete, converted wide receiver and his versatility should allow Frank Reich to move him all over the field.
Robert Turbin60.5229.91.912.3100.
Jordan Wilkins73.9310.
Christine Michael4.517.
Josh Ferguson3.613.

Wide Receivers


T.Y. Hilton721180.85.40001.2148.08
Failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since his rookie season, the new offense and return of Andrew Luck bodes well for Hilton, who led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2016. A bounce-back campaign is on the horizon for the speedster, but one concern (with or without Luck) is the lack of touchdowns -- Hilton has never had more than seven scores in a season.
Chester Rogers374811.94.515.800.560.08
Ryan Grant33.9403.42.50000.155.14
Daurice Fountain17.5262.51.80000.336.45
Deon Cain17.1225.72.10000.234.77

Tight Ends


Jack Doyle57.55295.20001.581.1
Doyle finished second on the team in targets (108) last season and posted career highs with 80 catches and 690 yards last season. With the Colts signing Eric Ebron, it's possible that Doyle fails to reach those numbers or perhaps even his 2016 numbers (59/584/5).
Eric Ebron45.3552.74.10000.279.47
Missing multiple games in his first three seasons, Ebron played a full 16-game slate last year and finished with 53/574/4. Ebron has 161 receptions for 1,822 yards and 10 touchdowns over the past three years combined. The former top-10 pick is still just 25 years old and perhaps the change of scenery will do him some good.
Erik Swoope8.399.60.70000.113.96
