Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Reeling from the sudden retirement of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, the Colts finished third in the AFC South with a record of 7-9. Their Super Bowl aspirations took a hit and the team never found its footing during the season behind their sudden starter Jacoby Brissett. The receiving corps dealt with injuries and didn’t give their quarterback the best options. The young, ferocious defense kept them in most games. The outlook as far as dynasty hinges on how well Brissett plays and if the Colts can bring in some receiving options for their young quarterback.

Brissett signed a two-year contract worth $30 million dollars after the news of Luck’s retirement. He is signed through this season and was a solid team leader but struggled down the stretch a little.
The team won five of its first seven games and appeared to not be missing a beat. Brissett had two games in which he threw for over 300 yards and two games with over 70 percent completion percentage. It was almost a tale of two seasons, he was sidelined part of week nine and all of week 10 and the Colts limped to the finishing line.
