    The Indianapolis Colts open their season at home as underdogs against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts are starting this 2023 season with rookie, NFL Combine legend Anthony Richardson at quarterback and ex-Philadelphia Eagles offensive Coordinator, Shane Steichen, as head coach. The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to grow on last season’s playoff berth and establish themselves as part of the AFC elite teams.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    What does the Jaguars passing offense look like with the new addition Calvin Ridley? Lawrence improved immensely as a second-year pro and Doug Pederson is a proven quarterback-friendly head coach. Calvin Ridley is returning from a full-year suspension last year and adds another weapon to this up-and-coming offense. Will Ridley return to his top-five fantasy wideout form as a Falcon or will he slot in behind fantasy breakout wide receiver from last season, Christian Kirk?

    How will Anthony Richardson starting at quarterback affect the rest of the Colts’ weapons on offense? The Colts selected Anthony Richardson as the fourth overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft. Richardson is an all-time athlete at the quarterback position. This offense is being coached by former Eagles offensive coordinator and play-caller, Shane Steichen. Steichen’s offense was RPO-heavy with a rushing quarterback in Philly, so it will be interesting to see how this offense looks under a quarterback with a similar skill set.
