If you want a team that can spread it around inside the 10, I offer the Indianapolis Colts. They were the only team that had 13 different players catch passes in that part of the field last year (and all but two of them caught touchdowns).

T.Y. Hilton is typically underused in that part of the field. He tends to be a DeSean Jackson type – a small, fast receiver who’s best used in the open field (where he has room to run away from people). But Hilton actually saw a team-high 10 targets inside the 10-yard line last year. That’s 4 more than Eric Ebron (though both caught 4 passes).

The Colts have some new pieces to work in this year. They drafted Parris Campbell, they signed Devin Funchess, and they’ve got Jack Doyle healthy again.

I expect a productive offense, but one where the targets are spread around (particularly around the goal line).
