The Indianapolis Colts will be setting up camp in Anderson, Ind. in just under two days. The Colts have a loaded roster with lofty expectations this season. They spent the offseason adding veteran talent to both sides of the ball.

Andrew Luck is coming off a 40 touchdown season, and with all the weapons available to him this year we could easily see that number tick up. Four of the returning receiving options accounted for 26 of Luck’s TD receptions.

A quick glance downfield could have Luck looking at T.Y. Hilton or tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. The Colts also added a potential Hall of Famer in Andre Johnson, who led the Texans in receptions despite an unhealthy rotation at quarterback.

Those four options are going to get the bulk of the attempts (not to mention the looks Frank Gore is sure to get out of the backfield), but the Colts have at least three other wideouts vying to be the third wide receiver on the depth chart. There are currently 11 wide receivers on the 90-man training camp roster, but it is doubtful that the team would enter the season with more than five or six on the final roster.

The Colts love their two tight end sets, but with all the talent at wide receiver they’ll be running with three wideouts a fair amount in 2015.
