NFL: NFL Draft Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts’ Great Big Reset™ saw the franchise bring in new leadership at head coach, former Philadelphia Eagles OC Shane Steichen, and a true investment under center, No. 4 overall pick Anthony Richardson. The success or failure of those moves will ultimately come to characterize general manager Chris Ballard’s stewardship of the team.

Let’s take a look at the projected offensive depth chart for the Colts following the 2023 NFL Draft.

Player most impacted by NFL Draft for fantasy football

Michael Pittman Jr. has the talent to become a No. 1 receiver but hasn’t enjoyed the caliber of QB necessary for his production to reach that level. Though the improvement might not appear immediately, Anthony Richardson provides a much higher upside than any signal-caller with which Pittman has worked since Philip Rivers.

Fantasy managers might not see huge returns from Pittman early in the season as Richardson, assuming he starts, adjusts to NFL defenses. But the possibility for explosive gains could quickly make Colts fans forget about last season’s disasters.
