Fantasy Tip: Hilton is entering the final year of his contract but likely is one of the team's top priorities in terms of signing players to extensions. Hilton should be the leading receiver for the Colts this season and likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen has started every game he has been healthy enough to play in, and Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes Allen's more complete skill set and the team's expanded receiving corps could lead to more snaps for Allen as the lone tight end in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Allen has fringe TE1 value because of his red-zone impact alone, and the possibility of an expanded role makes him worth the taking a chance on when the top tight end options are off the board.

Fantasy Tip: Luck posted career highs in passing yards (4,761) and touchdown passes (40) last season and will look to improve his play this season. Luck will have a lot of weapons to work in 2015 and should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite consistently facing defenses designed to shut him down, Gore finished with 255 carries for 1,106 yards and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. Now that Andrew Luck is his quarterback, Gore should have a lot more running room in 2015. He should make a solid RB2.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will likely command more than the $11 million per season that Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace receives, and Hilton could receive the franchise tag or become a free agent next year as the team works on an extension for QB Andrew Luck, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Hilton's contract isn't up for another year, and he should continue to put up big numbers as Luck's go-to weapon in the meantime. At the very least, he is a high-end WR2.

Fantasy Tip: Hilton probably won't be paid as much as Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant or Demaryius Thomas, but he won't want to be stiffed either. That bridge is yet to be crossed, however. For now, you should take Hilton as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2 in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Allen had just 29 catches, but he broke out with eight touchdowns. The offense will have two legit receivers, so it might open up things a bit more in the middle for him. He's on the fringe as a low-end TE1 but has upside in this offense.

Fantasy Tip: This move would make sense for the Colts, not only to help veteran RB Frank Gore, but to spread the wealth among WRs T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, not to mention TEs Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener. The Colts are stacked on offense with arguably the best quarterback in the league. Indianapolis could be a breeding ground for fantasy success.

Fantasy Tip: Moncrief should see solid playing time this season but his fantasy value may take a hit since the team has a lot of weapons in the passing game. There is a chance he could win the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp and could be a late-round option in leagues if he receives consistent targets during the season.

Indianapolis Colts LB Nate Irving (knee) is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and has a chance to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener said he wants to be a more consistent player and is looking to limit his mistakes on the field. "Your flubs are aired in front of the whole world. Whether you're sitting at a desk all day or whether you're playing football, nobody wants to make the 'Not Top 10.' Unfortunately I've been there and I'm trying to limit that as much as possible."
Fantasy Tip: Fleener is coming off a solid 2014 season with 774 receiving yards and eight touchdowns but will have to share targets with several other options in the passing game. Fleener could be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts OG Jack Mewhort could start at right tackle if OT Gosder Cherilus (groin, knee) is not ready to play during training camp. Mewhort will stay at left guard if Cherilus is healthy enough to play.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett said he wants to be a playmaker for the team this season. "I consider myself a playmaker," Dorsett said. "I want to be able to earn their trust and be a guy that they can look to to make a big play and make a play anytime. I just want to earn their trust and that's it right now." Dorsett said he has learned all of the receiver positions and is ready for the start of training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Dorsett likely will see playing time in multi-receiver sets and could be used as a deep threat. Owners in deeper leagues could consider him an option in the late rounds of drafts that could have the potential to have a bigger impact on the team.
