Indianapolis Colts: Predicted Finish, Key Signings and Fantasy Stars

Indianapolis Colts: Estimated finish, key signings and fantasy stars

In part 14 of a 32-part series, we profile every team in the National Football League with a prediction of where each team will end up in their division, key off-season acquisitions, and their top fantasy stars. Today we’re looking at the Indianapolis Colts.

Key off-season acquisitions

The most notable offseason acquisition for the Colts came at quarterback when Indianapolis acquired Matt Ryan from the Atlanta Falcons for a third-round pick in the 2022 National Football League Draft. Ryan had spent the last 14 seasons in Atlanta and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. The veteran quarterback replaces Carson Wentz, who Indianapolis traded to Washington in 2022 and 2023 for a third-round draft pick.

In 2021, Ryan completed 375 passes in 560 attempts for 3,968 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also had 40 rushing carries for 82 yards and another touchdown.

As far as defense goes, the Colts’ most significant acquisition was defensive end Yannick Ngakoue of Washington, DC. Ngakoue had 28 combined tackles, 23 quarterback hits, 10 sacks, eight tackles for a loss, three pass deflections and two forced fumbles.

Jonathan Taylor starts the season as the top draft player in all of fantasy football. Last season, he led the National Football League in rushing yards (1,811), rushing touchdowns (18), longest rushing touchdown (83 yards), yards per game (106.5), yards from scrimmage (2,171), and rushing and touchdowns (20). ).

Indianapolis also has the sixth-best defense in the NFL going into the season. Last season, the Colts gave up 365 points, the sixth lowest point allowed in the AFC.


There’s no doubt that the Colts and Tennessee Titans are the class of the division in the AFC South. Indianapolis hopes Ryan will benefit from a change of scenery, just as the move benefited Matt Stafford, who left Detroit for the Los Angeles Rams during last year’s offseason. And we know what happened there when the Rams won the Super Bowl.

The Colts are definitely a playoff contender. However, it may require Ryan to come into contact with his recipients. I’m predicting a comfortable second place for the Colts.
