Just when it appeared dynasty owners could make sense of the fantasy landscape in Indianapolis, the Colts complicate things by taking another player from Miami (FL). Often referred to as the Hoosier state, Indiana is making a slow transition into becoming the “U” of the Midwest. Former Miami players on the Colts roster include Frank Gore, Andre Johnson, Erik Swoope (former basketball player now TE), and newly acquired first round pick Phillip Dorsett (no relation to Tony). Head Coach Chuck Pagano as well as former Colts wide receiver, Reggie Wayne, are also alumni of Miami, FL.

Many questions came and went with first round surprise selection of wide receiver Dorsett. The Colts management felt Dorsett was the best value on the board at the pick #29. Analysts and fantasy pundits alike believe he is TY Hilton 2.0. Dorsett is fast, runs solid routes, is smaller in stature, and does have some similarities in his game. Truth is, Dorsett brings some depth and the ability to be a kick/punt returner the Colts have been missing for many years. In short, the morning after the first round of the draft, the Colts released KR/PR Josh Cribbs, leaving many to speculate that the return duties now belong to Dorsett.

The Colts brass have also created leverage following the 2015 when TY Hilton could potentially hit the free agent market. They have built in a short term safety net in case of injury, but are also utilizing a long-term vision of the offense in the absence of TY Hilton. So how does this affect the fantasy landscape in Indianapolis you might ask?

Let’s break down the offense and see how this could affect each player in the “new” Colts offense.

    A good review of a confusing offense (for WRs and TEs anyway!). One of the more intriguing long-shot stashes out there I think is Erik Swoope actually. It will be interesting to see what their TE situation looks like with Allen and Fleener hitting their contract years at the same time as Luck and TY.
