2018 Disaster Draft: The Indianapolis Colts

Oh my God, the Indianapolis Colts are so bad. They’re next-level bad. They are horrible. I can’t even figure out how to make heads or tails of what they are doing here. Anyway, here’s their roster and who they are protecting for a disaster draft. Really, a disaster draft is everything they’ve had since drafting Andrew Luck, FOLKS!

Lost to Free Agency: Frank Gore, Darius Butler, Adam Viniateri, Barkevious Mingo, Kamar Aiken

The No Doubters:

Player POS. 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022
Andrew Luck QB $24,400,000 $27,525,000 $28,400,000 $21,000,000 UFA
T.Y. Hilton WR $13,000,000 $15,000,000 $14,542,000 UFA
Anthony Castonzo LT $10,800,000 $11,050,000 UFA
Malik Hooker S $2,863,615 $3,436,338 $4,009,063 UFA
Jabaal Sheard OLB $7,500,000 $8,000,000 UFA
Jack Doyle TE $5,218,750 $5,650,000 UFA
Margus Hunt DT $2,000,000 UFA
Quincy Wilson CB $1,310,517 $1,572,621 $1,834,724 UFA
Henry Anderson DE $872,919 UFA

Andrew Luck is Schrodinger’s quarterback, which is exactly the reference that now-150 pound book worm will get and appreciate. T.Y. Hilton is a good football player, and Jabaal Sheard is the only elite player they have on their team. Jack Doyle gets a lot of pub in fantasy football circles. Full disclosure: the rest of these guys I haven’t heard of outside of Margus Hunt, but they had the highest Madden Pro Football Focus scores for their cost, so here we are.

The More-Than-Likely Staying:

Player POS. 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022
Johnathan Hankins DT $8,000,000 $8,500,000 UFA
John Simon OLB $3,281,250 $4,000,000 UFA
Al Woods DT $2,000,000 UFA
Jacoby Brissett QB $760,076 $915,114 UFA
Clayton Geathers FS $838,482 UFA
Marlon Mack RB $659,912 $749,912 $839,912 UFA
Matthias Farley SS $630,000 RFA

The Colts have a cheap player problem, as in, too many players are terrible, but cheap. This is no different. Hankins is good, Simon is decent. Woods is okay. The rest of these guys are cheap, but not great. They fill out the roster because they have to keep sixteen players from their trash roster.

 

The Leftovers:
Enjoy the garbage in the disaster draft, Conquistadors and Arches.
