Default Colts Best at Free Agency in 2018 per Spotrac

According to Spotrac, the Colts were the most effective team at getting value out of free agency during this last offseason:

Per Spotrac:

By far one of the most successful free agent classes in the league, the Colts took a few low-risk moves on bringing in Ebron & Grant to add weapons for luck, and both have been effective. Denico Autry has been one of the more productive edge defenders in the game, and Matt Slauson has been another positive piece to a finally improved offensive line.
Here's an article from Colts.com which provides a bit more detail:

I'm not sure how Spotrac calculated its numbers for this analysis, but I generally agree that the Colts free agency pickups this last offseason have been largely successful (with the notable exception of Howard and, because of injury, Slauson). I'd personally bump Ebron up to an "excellent" signing, and lower Slauson due to his injury though he seemed to be reasonably effective before getting hurt.

I guess the counterargument is that the Colts didn't sign any ultra high end free agents, and it's easier to get value out of lower tier free agents than the big guys, but it's nice to see that the Colts are spending their money effectively.
