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.
Dallas was the fourth worst fantasy tight end defense, so expect Vernon Davis to have a big game in the opener.
