The return of Andrew Luck launches the Colts back into the competitive spectrum. A dynamic, elite QB when healthy, Luck delivers a jolt to the Colts' offense, which has the potential to quickly climb the Madden ratings this season.
The Colts' offense runs through Luck. Ratings-wise, Luck plays like an Aaron Rodgers with a little less zip. He's solid in all aspects of the game and is very accurate for a QB below 90 OVR. He won't break too many sacks, but he can run and throw with precision.
With Luck back at the helm, T.Y. Hilton can now be fully utilized as a dynamic playmaker, packing 93 Speed and game-changing stick moves. His quickness and Agility are killer for deep routes, but can also create separation on quick slants when the blitz is coming.
This team is blessed with two outstanding options at tight end to make up for the lack of depth at receiver. Base stats aside, very little separates Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron. Doyle is better in traffic and shorter routes, while Ebron is a more versatile playmaker. I see two TE sets in the Colts' future.
The defensive side for the Colts is another story. You're not going to get many three-and-outs, so you'll have to focus on turnovers to create stops. T.J. Green is your best choice for User Lurks with quality Speed, decent Man Coverage, and servicable Catching.
Jabaal Sheard might not break into the 90s for OVR, but he can provide some pressure up front. His 91 Finesse Move is the best asset you have on the Colts' D-line.
Free Safety Malik Hooker was putting together a quality rookie campaign, catching an INT in three-straight games. That was cut short by a knee injury, but Hooker is back, and could be the diamond in the rough for the Colts' D. The combo of 91 Jumping with 88 Speed can help produce the turnovers you need.
