Colts 2014 Positional Review: Wide Receiver

1 of 6

The Indianapolis Colts finished the season 11-5 and made it all the way to the AFC Championship game. We take a look at each position and break down the units performance over the past season. Pro Football Focus (PFF) provides the grades, Football Outsiders DVOA (value per play) and DYAR (total value).

Heading into the 2014 season, the Colts appeared to be set at wide receiver. The return of a healthy Reggie Wayne and addition of Hakeem Nicks led the team to having a promising unit.

With T.Y. Hilton, the Colts had three players who had led their respective team’s in receiving at some point in their careers heading into the season.

Of the team’s 5,062 total passing yards, 3,004 came from the receivers. The Colts fielded a varied aerial attack with a variety of weapons, but the receivers weren’t without their issues.

The Colts led the NFL in drops by a wide margin with 40 (roughly 6.2-percent of their passes). Half of those drops were from wide receivers.

Heading into 2015, the receiving corps has just one answer and a number of holes to fill.
