Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.75: Projecting the 2019 Colts Offense with Dwain McFarland

Matt Waldman and RSP contributor Dwain McFarland continue their 2019 projection series with a conversation about the Colts offense. 

For the past five weeks, RSP Film and Data contributor Dwain McFarland and I had great conversations about player and team projections for the Titans, Buccaneers, Texans, Ravens, Cardinals, Bengals, Chiefs, Eagles, and Packers offenses. This week, we continue our ongoing podcast series with an examination of the Colts’ offense.

This is far from a data-only discussion. We discuss the context of player movement, player style, scheme design, injuries, coaching changes, and usage histories:

  • How does Frank Reich’s offense compare to the Eagles and Chargers schemes?
  • The historical run-pass ratios for Reich-coached teams and taking a stab at the 2019 Colts’ ratios.
  • Where do Nyheim Hines and Spencer Ware fit into the projection models based on past history?
  • Despite spreading the ball around as much as any scheme, can we count on T.Y. Hilton for another strong year?
  • If Hines remains a significant offensive factor, who is the odd-man out—Eric Ebron, Parris Campbell, Devin Funchess, or Jack Doyle?
  • Is Andrew Luck in store for a career year?
  • What can we expect from depth like Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams, Deion Cain, and Mo Alie-Cox?

This is an info-packed podcast with both of us sharing projections for individual players and on-field reasons to support our thoughts. We’ll continue next week
