The Colts have talent at their skill positions, but they also have depth concerns.
“We have three guys at wide receiver [who] we know about and then we have a bunch of guys [who] have talent, can run, have height, weight and speed and can catch and do all those things, but they have to go do it now,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “Those guys are all going to compete for that spot, and that’s what training camp is all about. We’ve got talent, we’ve got guys that are capable, they are just unproven.”
There's no clear-cut favorite on who Frank Gore's backup is even though the team is high on undrafted free agent Josh Ferguson out of Illinois. Gore had 227 more carries than his next closest teammate last season.
The Colts are just fine with their starting skill spots, but any kind of injury the team will need to sort out who is up next. Whomever wins the jobs could certainly have fantasy potential if there is an injury at some point. The story also mentioned TE, where it's just Jack Doyle and Chase Coffman behind Dwayne Allen.
Boyce has an opportunity to earn a roster spot behind T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett. Amazingly, his nine career receptions places him 4th on the Colts roster. That’s how much inexperience there is behind the undisputed top-3 Indianapolis wideouts. Originally a 4th round pick of the Patriots, Boyce would have upside with injuries to those other receivers.
A roster spot is nowhere near guaranteed for Boyce, and even if he makes the team, a lot has to happen for him to get snaps. There is no way he gets work ahead of a healthy Hilton, Moncrief, and Dorsett.
Boyce will not be draftable in 2016 fantasy drafts. Only injuries elsewhere will change that.
