Colts | Andrew Luck throwing weighted balls

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 05:47:16 -0800

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is throwing weighted balls, which are heavier than footballs, in his rehabilitation.

Fantasy Tip: Luck will carry some risk, but he confirmed a second surgery isn't on the table right now. He's worth taking as a QB1 if you miss out of on the first few.

Colts | Indy hopes to have Andrew Luck at OTAs

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 15:24:16 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still rehabilitating his throwing shoulder, but head coach Frank Reich hopes his star quarterback is healthy enough to participate in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Luck had a 2017 to forget under the vague protection of Jim Irsay and company. He should be able to return at full health this season and the new coaching staff should be a breath of fresh air. If he is 100% then he's worth the risk of drafting as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback again.

Colts | Andrew Luck excited about new offense

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 17:12:42 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he is excited about the offense head coach Frank Reich is bringing to the team. "That sounds great," Luck said. "I know all the best offenses that I've been a part of in my career we've not been static and we've attacked. And I'm sure he'll have a great flavor and we'll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it's all about."

Fantasy Tip: Luck's status for the 2018 season is still in question, so owners need to monitor the situation during the offense. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky fantasy option. Luck can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is cleared, but owners may want a solid backup in case he misses time.

Colts | Andrew Luck meets with experts

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 13:32:15 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has met with throwing experts in California as part of his rehabilitation process, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Luck has not begun throwing yet, but he does appear to be close to making that next step in his recovery from a torn labrum.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has had plenty of time and has plenty more time to make a full recovery with his throwing shoulder. The Colts have been extra careful with their star quarterback in an effort to have him prepared for the 2018 season. Again, if he is full go he is worth drafting as a QB1 even following the serious injury and extensive recovery.

Colts | Indianapolis will have up-tempo offense

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 13:18:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and company will implement a strong element of no huddle into their offensive game plans, according to new head coach Frank Reich. "We want to impose our will on the opponent," Reich said.

Fantasy Tip: That's all well and good, but Reich's offense will largely hinge on the health of Luck. With Luck returning and the Colts under a new regime, things are looking up. Assuming they are at full health, Luck and T.Y. Hilton are QB1 and WR1 candidates, respectively.

Colts | GM says no Andrew Luck surgery

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 08:28:27 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) doesn't require more surgery, according to general manager Chris Ballard. "He doesn't need surgery," Ballard said. "I've not gotten than from the two doctors. He's not throwing a football yet and is working on arm speed. He's not going to skip a step."

Fantasy Tip: Luck's availability is a big question mark again next season, and he could be an early backup option with big potential reward.

Colts | Concern Andrew Luck may need more surgery?

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 18:34:32 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) may not out of the woods yet regarding his right shoulder, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported "there still are doctors who have concerns about Luck's shoulder and whether he could wind up needing additional surgery."

Fantasy Tip: This is the most plausible explanation as to why Josh McDaniels had a change of heart about accepting the Colts' head coaching job, although that is pure speculation at this point. If this report turns out to be true, Indianapolis is going to be in a world of hurt again in 2018 despite the fact Jacoby Brissett actually held his own for the most part in his first season with the Colts. Until he actually resumes throwing, Luck's availability for next season cannot be taken for granted.

Colts | Andrew Luck close to throwing again

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 09:04:49 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is doing functional work - such as working on his motion and arm speed - to get strength back in the shoulder and is reportedly "very close" to throwing again, according to a source. He is also reportedly headed out to the Los Angeles area in the near future to work with noted throwing mechanics and strength gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is hardly out of the woods yet, but there seems to be a great deal of optimism we won't see a repeat of 2017. Furthermore, it's unlikely Josh McDaniels would be taking the head coaching job in Indianapolis if he wasn't getting exceedingly positive feedback regarding the recovery. As long as Luck gets some work in this summer, he should be able to return to the QB1 ranks in 2018.

Colts | Andrew Luck will be back next year

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 13:55:40 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be back "with a fierce fire in his eyes" in 2018, according to team owner Jim Irsay.

Fantasy Tip: Luck will have had two years to rest his injured shoulder, so one would assume he'll be full go for the 2018 season. His lack of playing time leading up to the season will certainly be a concern, but we know he can be a top-tier No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy.

Colts | Andrew Luck hopes to be ready for workouts

Sat, 30 Dec 2017 11:50:41 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he believes that he will be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Luck's situation during the offseason to see if he will need another surgery on his shoulder. Luck is a solid No. 1 quarterback when he is healthy but may be a risky option for owners next season if he is still dealing with the injury.
