Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton became the first receiving champion since retired Los Angeles Rams WR Torry Holt in 2000 to lead the NFL in receiving yards and not be voted to one of the two Associated Press All-Pro teams. Hilton led the league this season with 1,448 receiving yards.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the snub, Hilton still enjoyed a terrific campaign in 2016, as he also recorded 91 receptions and six touchdowns. Without question, the 27-year-old will be one of the first receivers taken off the board next season and will enter the new year as a desirable WR1.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck set a new career high in completion percentage during the 2016 season, completing 346-of-545 (63.5 percent) of his passes. He also recorded a career high with 7.8 yards per attempt.
Fantasy Tip: It was another excellent fantasy season for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as he also finished with 31 touchdown passes compared to 15 interceptions. Furthermore, he logged a 96.4 quarterback rating, which goes down as the second highest of his career. Going into next season, Luck could arguably end up being the best value at quarterback, typically being selected in fantasy drafts after the usual suspects, yet he's still capable of topping them all in production. Have him on your QB1 radar in 2017.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted six receptions for 95 yards on 12 targets in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and is the first Colts player to win the receiving title since Reggie Wayne in 2007.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton finished with career highs in receptions (91) and receiving yardage (1,448), and he has found the end zone at least five times in each of his first five NFL seasons. He'll be a solid WR1 again in all fantasy leagues in 2017.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 321 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He went over 4,000 passing yards for the third time in five NFL seasons.
Fantasy Tip: Luck finished with 31 TDs, his second-highest total in five NFL seasons. He re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in 2016, proving he is a must-have starter after his injury-marred 2015 season.

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 62 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, becoming the fourth player in NFL history to top 1,000 yards at age 33 or older. He is the oldest since former Washington Redskins RB John Riggins achieved the feat in 1984, and first 1,000-yard rusher for the team since RB Joseph Addai in 2007.
Fantasy Tip: Gore's career is winding down, but he showed he can still be trusted for fantasy purposes. If he plays in 2017 and is the starter, he will be a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play again.
