Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano believes Indianapolis possesses the best players it's ever had since he's been there. Pagano said the coaching staff and front office will have a tough time cutting down to the final 53-man roster with all the talent they have.
Fantasy Tip: With Andrew Luck, Frank Gore, T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson, not to mention a better than mediocre defense, Pagano has the right to be pumped up about this year's squad. Luck is considered by many to be the top quarterback in the NFL, and in fantasy football, Gore is in the RB2 conversation, Hilton is a WR1 and Johnson in WR2 territory with added value in PPR leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard is expected to enter training camp as the team's No. 1 running back, but that doesn't mean RB Donald Brown will not also see playing time. Head coach Chuck Pagano sees Ballard as a player who gets stronger as the game wears on, while Brown is considered more of a home run hitter for the offense.
"Can Vick be an every-down guy? Yeah. Can Donnie be an every-down guy? Yeah. They are different types of runners and are more than capable on third down, knowing the protections and picking up blitzers and being effective once they get out to catch the football and doing those things out of the backfield," Pagano said. "Vick is a solid, solid guy; Donnie is a home run hitter," Pagano said. "If he gets the edge and hits a crease, he can take it the distance."
Fantasy Tip: Ballard should be viewed as a third fantasy running back who could have slightly more value in PPR leagues. Brown is a handcuff pick and likely nothing more than a sixth back in deep leagues.
