2023 Dynasty Rookie Post-Draft Update: Anthony Richardson, QB IND

Kevin White

The NFL Draft is behind us, rookie drafts are taking place, and as dynasty managers we are looking ahead to the upcoming season. In our Dynasty Rookie Post-Draft Update series, we break down all the incoming fantasy-relevant rookies, looking at their profiles and where they fit. The basis of the rookie profile involves the usage of STORM analysis, focusing on five key components: Situation, Talent, Opportunity, Risk, and Market.


Name: Anthony Richardson

Position: Quarterback

Pro Team: Indianapolis Colts

College Team: Florida

Draft Status: Round one, fourth overall

Landing as a top four draft pick, on a team that recently appointed new head coach Shane Steichen and as the first pick of the new regime is the perfect situation for Anthony Richardson in dynasty. Steichen has previously worked with elite QBs Justin Herbert and Jalen Hurts - aiding their overall development and tailoring the offensive scheme to maximize their abilities. The Colts’ offense is built around cornerstone RB Jonathan Taylor - ideal for Richardson in order to relieve the pressure of pass game expectations early on in his career. Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce provide big-bodied targets on the outside, in addition to a TE room with a plethora of size. The offensive line is solid overall - anchored by all-pro left guard Quentin Nelson, pro bowl center Ryan Kelly and offensive tackle Braden Smith. Both Taylor and Pittman are unrestricted free agents in 2024, but we should expect them both to be re-signed as the foundational pieces of a Colts offense surrounding Richardson. There's plenty to like about Richardson’s situation, with room for further growth in the future.
