Fantasy Tip: Moncrief has definitely shown he's capable of producing in the NFL, and he'll be even better if Andrew Luck can stay on the field. He has WR2 upside in 2016 after posting 64 catches for 733 yards and six touchdowns last year.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett figures to be that No. 3 wide receiver behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. The second-year receiver is more of a deep threat, but he definitely has breakout potential this year. View him as a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Fantasy Tip: Ferguson has plenty of upside and would make for a nice complement to Gore. He has yet to prove himself, but taking him in the late middle rounds isn't a bad strategy with the potential he has.

Fantasy Tip: This should have been anticipated as Gore is 33 years old and entering his 12th NFL season. If he can stay healthy he should still be in contention for 1,000 rushing yards and at least a handful of scores. Drafting him as an RB3 would be ideal.

Indianapolis Colts OG Hugh Thornton will need to hold off C Jonotthan Harrison, OT Denzelle Good and OT Joe Haeg for the starting right guard position. Haeg is the most likely to come off the bench, however.

Indianapolis Colts LB Erik Walden will likely start at outside linebacker and take a majority of the snaps on running downs while LB Trent Cole could see more time on passing downs, according to beat writer Kevin Bowen.

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore uses critics to stay motivated at 33 years old. "When I hear it, that's when I attack my training," Gore said. "When I'm tired, I tell myself what the people are saying about me." Gore works out twice a day, adding football-specific field work to his usual workout involving speed, agility and strength training. Gore said working out more makes his mind stronger heading into training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Not many running backs succeed at Gore's age, but something has to be said for his work ethic, determination and sustainability. If he can stay healthy, Gore is capable of achieving low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 numbers.

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore's yards per carry fell from 4.1 to 3.5 when QB Andrew Luck was out of the lineup, and he averaged just 2.7 yards per carry in the three games OT Anthony Castonzo missed.
Fantasy Tip: He fell just short of 1,000 yards last season, and a healthy Luck could pay big dividends for the Gore. His age is a red flag, but Gore is still worth a look as a RB3 as the clear starter in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore said he hears the naysayers who question if he can produce at his age, and he uses the doubters as motivation to "attack" his training. "I try to do two workouts three times a week," Gore said. "(In the second workouts), I do more agility, jump cuts, moves, working my feet in small spaces. Just trying to imitate like when I'm in the hole."
Fantasy Tip: The last time a running back Gore's age or older rushed for 1,000 yards was in 1984, so the odds aren't in his favor. A healthy Andrew Luck should help free up Gore and the running game, but don't count on him being more than a RB3 in 2016.

Indianapolis Colts DE Henry Anderson (knee) is in the final stages of his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but general manager Ryan Grigson said Anderson will not return to the field until he is completely recovered.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief caught 34 passes for 381 yards and five touchdowns through seven games with QB Andrew Luck under center last season. In the nine following games, Moncrief caught just 30 passes for 352 yards and a single touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, losing Luck was a big blow for Moncrief's fantasy value in 2015. Entering 2016, though, it is Moncrief who isn't 100% healthy after offseason surgery to repair his turf toe, yet the third-year wideout is still commanding a selection in the early middle rounds of drafts. And while there is a lot to like about the chances of a breakout season from Moncrief, you'll just want to be careful that any profit potential isn't squeezed out of his fantasy stock by reaching too early for him in drafts. Keep tabs on his health leading into the season, too.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett may be used sparingly considering the Colts already have T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief as their primary targets. Dorsett isn't in his prime yet, but taking him as a WR4 wouldn't be the worst decision-making. He could end up as Andrew Luck's No. 3 wide receiver, after all.
