Fantasy Football Outlook: With Bruce Arians moving on to Arizona, the Colts brought in Luck’s old coach from Stanford in Pep Hamilton to run the offense. Good move for Luck as his familiarity with Hamilton should keep the Colts offense on schedule for another productive season.
We will likely see more use of the tight ends with Hamilton running the show and the vertical game won’t be used like it was with Arians. This is what we saw at Stanford and while a different approach it was an effective offense.
What does surprise me is that the Colts failed to add another inside the tackles running back opting to select Kerwynn Williams in the later rounds. Williams will have a shot to be in the mix but he will probably see more work in the passing game.
This leads me to wonder whether we will see the type of running offense we used to watch when Hamilton and Luck were together back in college?
I’m also not a fan of the Colts defense and while they held it together to go to the playoffs a year ago, it will probably be the weak link that holds them back as an 8 and 8 team this year.
Luck should take another step forward in his progression as a starting quarterback and I like his odds to beat the passing numbers he posted a year ago, in part because of the team structure around him. Reggie Wayne is still playing good football and as I’ve pointed out above, if Indianapolis is going to compete, it appears the passing game will have to be the strength of the team.
Look to Luck as a solid low-end QB1 option on draft day, making him a perfect fit for those of you that like to wait until the middle rounds to take a quarterback.
