NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts added veteran signal-caller Philip Rivers after the Chargers let him walk. Jacoby Brissett filled the space left by Andrew Luck’s surprising departure last year, but Rivers should be an upgrade. Rivers’ veteran presence coupled with a strong overall team and coach, should keep the Colts in the playoff race.
High fantasy/betting impact
* T.Y. Hilton activated from NFI list, Malik Henry activated from Covid IR — August 12
The Colts welcomed back two receivers, including their most important. Hilton dealt with calf issues much of last season and looks to bounce back from his worst season as a pro.
* T.Y. Hilton started training camp on the NFI list, but says he is close to returning in a “couple days.” — Source — August 10
Hilton has a hamstring issue, but it doesn’t appear to be much, giving him time to be ready by the time the Colts start more work on the field. As always, Hilton has a ton of upside and should be more consistent with Rivers throwing him the ball.
