With fantasy football drafts rapidly approaching, which Indianapolis Colts players should fans want on their team?
If you’re a fan of the NFL, by now you probably have joined a fantasy league. Every year, new players emerge as top fantasy options and this year will be no exception.
The Indianapolis Colts are a talented team and have a few players that could help fans win their fantasy football championship. Some players are obvious picks and others are sleepers. Which Indy players should be high on the fantasy big board?
In this article, let’s look at the top three must-draft fantasy players for the Colts that can help teams win their league.
3. Colts D/ST is a must-draft unit
If you have paid attention to the moves Indy made this offseason, this should come as no surprise. Last year, the Colts ranked 7th among D/ST in fantasy.
Taking a defense that was already one of the better options in fantasy and then adding Yannick Ngakoue and Stephon Gilmore makes Indy’s defense one of the premier options in fantasy.
Defense and special teams are often one of the more undervalued positions in fantasy, but it is often crucial in close matchups. As a fantasy team manager, you can most likely wait until the final three rounds to draft a defense.
This year’s Colts’ defense will be a top-five fantasy defense. With that being said, I think the second to last round in fantasy drafts will be a good slot to pick them up. This is great value for a defense that should give you 8-10 fantasy points per week.
