Fantasy Tip: Johnson will be the unquestioned No. 2 receiver behind T.Y. Hilton and should plenty of opportunities to rebound from a disappointing 2014 campaign with the Houston Texans. If he can stay on the field, he's a viable WR2 candidate, especially with Andrew Luck now throwing to him.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to compete with WRs Donte Moncrief, Duron Carter and Vincent Brown for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp. Dorsett is also expected to be a candidate for the kick and punt returner jobs.
Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has been working on picking up the offense during offseason workouts and should have the chance to earn solid playing time in his rookie season. Dorsett could be a late-round option in drafts next season because of his potential.

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson has made a "pretty seamless" transition to the offense, and he has a strong grasp of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Johnson took snaps with the starters during organized team activities Wednesday, May 20.
Fantasy Tip: While Johnson is joining a crowded receiving corps, he still projects to have a significant role in the offense. Entering his 13th season, Johnson's production is on the decline, but catching passes from Andrew Luck won't hurt his stat line. At best, Johnson is a low-end No. 2 wide receiver in all formats. Still, there are no guarantees he is a starting fixture all season, and the touchdown totals haven't been helpful -- 12 scores over the past three seasons. All said, Johnson looks a lot better as your third receiver than your second, and he likely isn't worth reaching for entering his age-34 season.

Fantasy Tip: At 32, Gore's best years are likely in the rear-view mirror. However, a slight resurgence with his attachment to a strong offense isn't out of the question, especially in the touchdown department. Additionally, FantasyScore players and PPR owners will be interested to find out how Gore is planned to be utilized in the passing game, so check back for updates on that front. He has snatched just 27 passes over the past two seasons, after all. He should be drafted as a low-end No. 2 running back in traditional formats, and unless you're expecting a huge spike in receptions, Gore is best suited as a No. 3 back in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett likely will not see a lot of playing time initially, but his speed should help when the team spreads things out. Dorsett could be a late-round option in deeper leagues next season but should not be a weekly starting option.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is missing the first four weeks of the Colts' offseason program as part of his plan to play as many as 20 games in 2015. "The high ankle sprain (from 2014) lingered a little longer then I wanted it to. I talked to (Coach Pagano) about it and there was an understanding. I've been out here for two months, just grinding, getting my body in good shape so that I can go out and the team can depend on me. Getting late in the year (2014), I had a banged up knee and a banged up ankle. They didn't feel, I didn't feel, that they could depend on me and that was frustrating because I feel as if, in every situation throughout the season, they can count me," Allen said. Allen expects to rejoin the team Monday, May 18, for the beginning of organized team activities.
Fantasy Tip: Allen played 13 games last season, catching 29 passes for 395 yards and eight touchdowns. As one of Andrew Luck's favorite red zone targets, Allen could perform like a top-10 tight end if he can stay healthy. Due to injury concerns, Allen could set up as a steal in the latter rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett received praise from QB Andrew Luck Wednesday, May 6. "I know Phillip's going to be a stud," Luck said. "Runs like the wind, tracks the ball in the air, makes big plays."
Fantasy Tip: Although Indianapolis isn't exactly hurting for weapons in the passing game, there should be some targets available for Dorsett with Luck leading a pass-happy attack. His big-play ability will likely make him a high-risk, high-reward gamble at FantasyScore in his rookie season.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson will be battling Vick Ballard and Zurlon Tipton for a chance at meaningful carries behind Frank Gore and Dan Herron.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has joined one of the top offenses in the NFL and should have a solid role in the passing game. Dorsett could be an option in the late rounds of deep leagues next season.
