Early Fantasy Football Look at Colts Players

June 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

With roughly two months before most participants begin their fantasy football drafts, Fantasy experts at took an early look at who they think is the top 300 picks are for the 2012 season. These experts weren't excited over anyone from the Colts roster as only one player cracked the top 100. Ironically, divisional rival, the Houston Texans, had the consensus number one fantasy player for 2012 in running back Arian Foster. In total, the Indianapolis Colts had 6 players in the top 300 with their own running back Donald Brown ranked the highest, coming in at #95.

On Thursday, Indy Gridiron discussed Donald Brown's hold on the top running back spot despite the recent signing of Mewelde Moore and the young backs trying to take his reps. Some fantasy experts believe that Donald Brown could be a "sleeper" this year. Head coach Chuck Pagano believes that Brown is a "3 down" back and has had a great off season so for. Unfortunately, I think that rookie draft pick Vick Ballard (#244), DeIone Carter (#170) and Mewelde Moore could eat into Brown's touches. Both Pagano and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians believe that multiple running backs are needed for the entire season. Expect a running back committee for the 2012 season, which means only draft Brown if you need a 4th running back who you can start on a bye week.

Reggie Wayne was the next on the list ranked #103. However, Pete Prisco of feels that Wayne is overrated and doesn't see Reggie as anything more than a possession receiver. In terms of fantasy football, I would say take him as your 4th or 5th wide receiver.

The man who will be throwing Wayne the ball, Andrew Luck, was ranked #138. Personally, I wouldn't touch Andrew Luck unless he has lights up the scoreboard in the first 2 regular season games. The odds are stacked against Luck this fantasy season.

The biggest sleeper on the Colts is tight end Coby Fleener (#195). Coby Fleener and Andrew Luck have a comfort level with each other due to their time at Stanford. Additionally, Arians has already showed that he plans on starting two tight ends and shifting Fleener all over the field to create mismatches. I look for Coby Fleener to have a solid fantasy football season of at least 600 to 700 yards receiving and 7 or 8 touchdowns.

The Colts have made a lot of changes in 2012. It's going to be hard seeing Peyton in another Jersey, but as I am, I'm sure you are all excited to see what Andrew Luck can do for our team. If you would like to continue reading about the Colts, you can do so at
