  • Anthony Richardson Making Good Progress

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson (shoulder), who played in parts of just four games in his rookie season in 2023 before having season-ending shoulder surgery for an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, is making roughly 40 throws per day in his recovery this offseason. He has thrown more than 200 passes in all just five months post-surgery. The 21-year-old former fourth overall pick is on a mission to get ready for his sophomore season and should be fully ready for Week 1 this fall. "I've never waited this long to get back to playing football," Richardson said. "I'm just on a mission this year. Once that mission's complete, then I'll be good." While Richardson has plenty to improve on as a passer, he has considerable QB1 upside in fantasy football because of his sure athletic ability and rushing prowess despite not having played a full season in the NFL.

  • Colts QB Anthony Richardson On Track To Participate In Spring Practices

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    Last month, Anthony Richardson resumed throwing in a notable step forward in his rehab process. The Colts quarterback continues to make progress while recovering from a sprained AC joint. That shoulder injury led to season-ending surgery early in Richardson's rookie campaign. He remains the team's clear-cut starter ahead of the 2024 season, though, with backup Gardner Minshew having been [...]

  • Anthony Richardson Expected To Take Part In Spring Practices

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Shane Steichen wouldn't say definitively that quarterback Anthony Richardson (shoulder) will be cleared by next month but he "should be" after missing most of his rookie season in 2023 with an AC joint sprain that required season-ending surgery. "I know he's super fired up and ready to roll through the spring practice and training camp and this season," Steichen said. The 21-year-old had surgery on Oct. 24 and began throwing last month. This year in training camp, Richardson will take all of the starting reps while Joe Flacco serves as his backup. Having his role clearly defined at this stage of the offseason, as well as another year in the same system, should make Richardson feel more comfortable than he did as a rookie. His brief showing in 2023 gave fantasy managers a quick glimpse into his high-end QB1 upside, mainly because of his elite rushing abilities.

  • Colts Re-Sign Backup Center Jack Anderson

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    The Indianapolis Colts re-signed backup center Jack Anderson to a one-year deal ahead of 2024 free agency. Originally a 2021 seventh-round pick by the Buffalo Bills out of Texas Tech, Anderson has played in 15 games with three starts between his time with the Colts, Bills, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles. He did not log a snap in 2023. Starting center Ryan Kelly is one of the best players at his position, so this is simply a depth-solidifying move for the organization that aims to protect second-year quarterback Anthony Richardson in 2024.

  • Anthony Richardson Begins Throwing Again

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is throwing again after suffering a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in October that required surgery. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft flashed fantasy upside early in his career, averaging 23.1 fantasy points per game through his first three starts. However, he suffered a concussion and a major shoulder injury before making it to Week 6. The 6'4" signal-caller has elite physical traits, but he'll have to find a way to stay healthy to live up to his potential. With Richardson already throwing in February, he's likely to be one of the first 10 quarterbacks off the board in 2024 fantasy drafts due to his rushing upside.
