The Colts were the 4th ranked fantasy tight end defense last year, but I think that flies out the window with the suspension of DE Robert Mathis. I really question if the Colts will be able to generate a pass rush and if they cannot, Manning can find any target.
I am not sure how much it matters that the 49ers were 11th against fantasy tight ends. They are going to be down MLB NaVorro Bowman and OLB Aldon Smith, which is a big part of their defense.
