NFL Midseason Report: AFC SOUTH
Indianapolis Colts 6-2
The Colts came off a 19-9 loss to lowly San Diego with a 39-33 win over Denver. Trent Richardson, Coby Fleener, T.Y. Hilton, Andrew Luck, Donald Brown, and Darrius Heyward-Bey have all been inconsistent. If they can keep up some kind of consistency, they are real Super-Bowl contenders, with or without star receiver Reggie Wayne.
Hilton is a WR2/3 with Wayne out. Fleener is a TE2, and Luck is a shaky QB1.
Houston Texans 2-6
The Texans are in all-out panic mode. On a 6 game losing-streak, star Running Back Arian Foster is also out indefinitely. Houston has much more talent than they are showing, however, it may already be too late for them.
Foster is out, star Andre Johnson is a WR2, and Garrett Grahm is a weak TE2.
Tennessee Titans 4-4
The Titans have exceeded expectations this year, third-year Quarterback Jake Locker has been very promising and a much improved Defense has helped them win three of their first seven games. Although the playoffs are a long shot, Locker looks like a solid franchise Quarterback for years to come.
Halfback Chris Johnson is a RB2, receiver Kendall Wright is a WR4, and Locker is a below-average QB2.
Jacksonville Jaguars 0-8
The Jags have been a disappointment this season, with starting Quarterback Blaine Gabbert and Halfback Maurice Jones-Drew injury-prone, the Jags have relied on NFL-fringe Quarterback Chad Henne to lead the offense this season. The defense has also been a disappointment.
Henne is a desperate QB2, Jones-Drew is a RB2 and receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon are WR2's.
