Pros: The Colts can suppress points. Their 34 sacks last year were their most since '05. They have defensive end Robert Mathis and free safety Antoine Bethea as anchors, and their secondary is becoming more seasoned.
Cons: They finished 28th among defenses in standard scoring last year. They were middling in the NFL in interceptions and sacks, and now Dwight Freeney (ankle) is limited. Safety Bob Sanders can't stay healthy and may not be ready for Week 1, per some reports.
Fantasy tip: Their name inflates their draft value, which places them on average among the top 15 defenses taken. This defense might struggle to be consistent enough to be an every-week starter.
