Colts | Andrew Luck throwing underneath more

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 05:46:22 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is throwing more underneath passes to get the ball out quicker and allow his receivers to use their speed after the catch. "They've worked really hard on that clock in (Luck's) head," coach Chuck Pagano said. "You can sit and wait and wait and wait and hold that thing too long. I think our guys up front, that starting unit and the couple guys that came in did a really nice job of giving him some time. He is not turning down a profit so if things aren't there down the field, then go ahead and hit your check-down. We've got some guys that can make some plays if we can get them the ball in space."

Fantasy Tip: Luck took a step backwards last season after being arguably the top quarterback taken in most drafts. He's still a high-end quarterback that will likely be one of the first to come off the board, but it's not a given that he's No. 1.

Colts | Andrew Luck back on the horse

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:15:37 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck made his first start since November, completing all eight of his pass attempts for 71 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Luck was very efficient in albeit low-risk situations. He appears to be 100 percent and is primed for a bounceback season. He will be a QB1 in all fantasy formats in 2016 as long as he can stay healthy.

Colts | Andrew Luck on track to play vs. Ravens

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:56:56 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is expected to play in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Luck was held out of the first preseason game but probably will receive limited snaps against Baltimore. He struggled with injuries last season but will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game in 2016. Luck should be a solid No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

Colts | Andrew Luck likely to sit out Saturday

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:30:53 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck will not play in the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Buffalo Bills, according to team owner Jim Irsay.

Fantasy Tip: Irsay pointed to the fact it is "a long preseason" and the team has two home games coming up over the next two weeks as reasons why Luck will not take the field tonight. Scott Tolzien should play the first quarter and perhaps into the second. Luck should still be considered a top-five quarterback throughout the remainder of draft season.

Colts | Andrew Luck admits to mistakes

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 18:06:41 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he has made his "fair share of mistakes" during training camp and is doing his best not to repeat those mistakes.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is adjusting to a new offensive coordinator and new offensive scheme, so a few growing pains aren't surprising. Ultimately, he should benefit from more three-receiver sets and post QB1 numbers in 2016.

Colts | Andrew Luck looks sharp

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 12:33:53 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck received praise Thursday, Aug. 4, from Colts WR T.Y. Hilton. When asked if he has noticed a difference in Luck's pocket passing, Hilton said, "Oh yeah, he's changed a lot of things with his footwork (and) his delivery. He's just working hard. He's getting the ball out quicker. He's making sure guys are in the right spots. He's checking the protection (and) making sure guys are picking up the blitz or stunts or whatever they're doing. He's looking really well."

Fantasy Tip: Everything points to Luck being on track to bounce back nicely for fantasy purposes and rank among the top point-getters at his position. Draft him after the fourth round in standard formats.

Colts | Andrew Luck to play preseason opener

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 20:19:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and the rest of the team's starters will play in the preseason opener Sunday, Aug. 7, against the Green Bay Packers. Luck and the starters aren't expected to stay on the field long.

Fantasy Tip: Luck missed substantial time in 2015 due to a kidney injury, so the team wants him to get plenty of game reps to get back into the swing of things. All indications are that Luck is healthy and he will return to being a top-flight QB1 in all fantasy formats in 2016.

Colts | Quicker release for Andrew Luck?

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:46:55 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck would like to get rid of the ball quicker in 2016 in an effort to increase better health. Luck said eliminating things quickly, like routes on his drop back, will be key in a quicker release. "I think that's the skill set you learn as time goes on," Luck said, "the ability to eliminate one option and move on to the next."

Fantasy Tip: Luck has been battered and bruised plenty over his four-year career. An improved offensive line and a faster release should certainly pay off for Luck and the Colts offense. If the versatile quarterback can stay healthy through training camp and the preseason then he'll be worth selecting as a mid-range QB1.

Colts | Healthy teammates to help Frank Gore

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:40:19 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore's yards per carry fell from 4.1 to 3.5 when QB Andrew Luck was out of the lineup, and he averaged just 2.7 yards per carry in the three games OT Anthony Castonzo missed.

Fantasy Tip: He fell just short of 1,000 yards last season, and a healthy Luck could pay big dividends for the Gore. His age is a red flag, but Gore is still worth a look as a RB3 as the clear starter in Indianapolis.
