Colts | Andrew Luck to play Sunday

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 07:59:03 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will play in Week 3's game against the San Diego Chargers, even though he is listed as questionable on the injury report, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. He was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, after practicing on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has a very favorable matchup versus San Diego and should be viewed as a solid QB1 option in all formats. The Chargers have allowed 649 passing yards and four touchdowns through their first two contests.

Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton limited Thursday

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 14:49:46 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) and WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) were limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Usually when players are limited this "early" in the week they end up playing that weekend. Luck and Hilton both have a good matchup on paper, although Hilton could be shadowed by one of the best cornerbacks in the game in Jason Verrett. Tempering expectations for Hilton in such a case would be advised, but he's still a WR2 consideration, while Luck remains in QB1 territory.

Colts | No practice for Andrew Luck

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:59:46 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, because he is still nursing a sore shoulder and coaches and trainers wanted to provide him an additional day of rest.

Fantasy Tip: Luck lands in a prime matchup for a bounce-back showing in Week 3. The San Diego Chargers have allowed the fourth most passing yards (649) in the league and four touchdowns through the first two games of the season. Monitor Luck's progress leading into Sunday, but as long as he's active, he's a strong fantasy option.

Lions | Ziggy Ansah drawing extra attention

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 20:02:29 -0700

Colts | Andrew Luck looking to his tight ends

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 18:59:28 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck targeted TE Dwayne Allen and TE Jack Doyle a combined 10 times in Week 1, resulting in eight completions for 88 yards and three touchdowns, and Luck said he wants to attack defenses in multiple ways this season.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts draw a tough matchup with Denver in Week 2, and if you have a decent alternative to Allen, you should plug them in.

Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton practice in full

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 12:59:55 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) got in a full practice Friday, September 16, after being limited in the previous day's session. Additionally, WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) returned to practice after not practicing on Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of their status from earlier in the week, both will be fine for the Colts' Week 2 tilt. Luck posted monster numbers in the opener at Detroit, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him continue to provide QB1 production from here on out. Meanwhile, although Hilton didn't score in Week 1, he still had a solid showing with six catches for 79 yards on a healthy 12 targets. He's a desirable WR2 with WR1 potential.

Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton on injury report

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:06:50 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 15, while QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited with a right shoulder ailment. Neither had been on the injury report earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: The extent, cause and severity of these injuries were not disclosed, but it's alarming for players to show up on an injury report later in the week. In Luck's case, however, the Colts may just be limiting his reps before gameday. He and Hilton both face a tough test in the Denver Broncos this week, and their fantasy value already takes a dip because of that. They're definitely both still startable as long as they're playing, but look for updates on their statuses this weekend.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 13:24:25 -0700

Colts | Andrew Luck limited Thursday

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 16:53:18 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, September 8.

Fantasy Tip: Although Luck has been limited in practice the past couple of days, owners can still safely fire him up with confidence for Week 1, as the team's opener with the Detroit Lions should likely produce a lot of points. Obviously, Luck will be one of the main reasons for that.

Colts | Indy trying to keep Andrew Luck fresh

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 22:39:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 7. However, a source said Luck being listed as limited is nothing more than making sure he is fresh and ready for the Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: The team was cautious with Luck throughout training camp and the preseason. He'll be just fine for the regular season opener and beyond, and he is a top-notch fantasy option across the board and in DFS.

Colts | Andrew Luck limited Wednesday

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 16:43:18 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Luck probably will be fine for Week 1, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He has several weapons to work with in the passing game and should be a starting quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

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.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck with receive $60 million guaranteed by March of 2017. He will earn $81 million by March of 2018 and $87 million fully guaranteed by March of 2019.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is set, he just needs to stay healthy. The dead horse has been beaten already, but Luck should be considered as a top-five fantasy quarterback this year.

Colts | More on Andrew Luck's deal

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 13:04:09 -0700

Updating previous items, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's five-year extension is actually a six-year deal. It is worth a little more than $139 million in total, which is a new NFL record. It also comes with $87 million in guaranteed money, also an all-time record.

Fantasy Tip: It's been said enough already, but Luck is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and in fantasy football. View him as a top-five fantasy quarterback in fantasy drafts.

Colts | Andrew Luck extension details

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:31:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's five-year extension is worth $75 million over the first three years, according to a source. The amount is slightly less over the final two years.

Fantasy Tip: It's a big-time extension for a big-time quarterback. As stated previously, Luck is arguably the most complete quarterback in the league. He has extra fantasy value because of his running ability. An argument can be made to draft him as a top-three fantasy quarterback, but it's probably safer to take him as a top-five quarterback considering his injury history.

Colts | Andrew Luck signs extension

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:25:56 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck signed a five-year extension through 2021 Wednesday, June 29. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The numbers should be record-breaking on this deal. Luck is arguably the most complete quarterback in the NFL when he's healthy. He's worth drafting as a top-five fantasy quarterback despite being nagged with injures last year.

Colts | Andrew Luck on the move more?

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 09:39:43 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck will be on the move more in 2016, and offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer want to design more plays that can use Luck's athleticism outside of the pocket. Protecting Luck remains of utmost importance, though, and the Colts believe they have the personnel to do that. The Colts have used more rollouts in offseason practices.

Fantasy Tip: Designed rollouts are different from having Luck escape the pocket to use his legs for extra yards. The Colts have made it clear that they'd like their QB to avoid as many hits as possible after he sustained a serious injury in 2015 and missed a large chunk of time. With better protection and full health, Luck could easily be one of, if not the most, valuable fantasy quarterbacks.

Colts | Andrew Luck is a full participant

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 20:19:18 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) made all of his throws and looked in complete command during organized team activities (OTAs) after rehabilitation from a lacerated kidney. "He's got a lot in his mind he wants to prove," quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer said.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has a chip on his shoulder after an injury-marred 2015, and that's not good for the opposition. It is good for a returning T.Y. Hilton, and, of course, prospective fantasy owners. Luck won't go in the first round, but he could intrigue fantasy owners starting at the end of Round 2 when looking for that bona fide No. 1 fantasy signal caller with something to prove.

Colts | Andrew Luck learning to slide

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:55:09 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is reluctantly accepting the fact that he needs to slide when he leaves the pocket, OT Anthony Castonzo said.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has the potential to be the top fantasy quarterback, but he can't help owners if he is sitting on the sidelines. He should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in drafts in 2016.

Colts | Andrew Luck feels he is a better QB

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:44:09 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is improving with every practice, head coach Chuck Pagano said, and Luck said he is "physically and mentally" a better quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries ruined Luck's 2015 season, but he should still be viewed as a top-five fantasy quarterback in 2016.

Colts | Andrew Luck deal not imminent

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 09:46:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's next contract needs to work for both sides, and nothing is imminent yet, according to owner Jim Irsay. The team has set a soft deadline for training camp in July to get a deal done.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is expected to land the richest deal in NFL history, but a lot has changed from a fantasy perspective in a calendar year. He's coming off an injury-riddled season, and his weapons around him are pretty questionable. He still has the talent to keep him in the top-three picks at the position.

Colts | Andrew Luck progressing toward deal

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 11:46:48 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is making progress toward a blockbuster extension, sources say, which is expected to be finalized in July. The deal is expected to make Luck the highest-paid player in league history, and he could reach $25 million annually.

Fantasy Tip: Luck figures to get paid handsomely, but there are plenty of questions about the personnel around him. The offensive line was one of the worst last year, and he doesn't have a big security blanket in the running game or proven targets after T.Y. Hilton. Luck still has the talent that should make him one of the top three QBs drafted in fantasy.

Colts | Andrew Luck full-go

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:19:27 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder, kidney) said he is full go with no limitations for organized team activities. He took part in every drill during OTAs.

Fantasy Tip: Luck couldn't stay healthy in a tumultuous 2015 season. With a new starting center and a hopefully improved offensive line, Luck could return to top-tier fantasy quarterback form. Despite the injury concerns, he should still be regarded as a top fantasy quarterback, too.

Colts | Indy won't change Andrew Luck

Wed, 11 May 2016 10:38:20 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck missed nine games due to injury last year, but new quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer said they won't limit Luck and try to force him to change his playing style. Luck has taken more than 100 hits since entering the NFL, but he also committed 13 turnovers and completed just 55.3% of his pass attempts in seven games last year.

Fantasy Tip: With full health, Luck should return to one of the top tiers of starting fantasy quarterbacks behind what should be an improved offensive line. Luck will likely limit some of the scrambling he does because of his injury last year, but it won't completely disappear, as it gives him an extra dimension to confuse and frustrate defenses. If your leaguemates are a little down on him in drafts, take advantage.

Colts | Owner wants Andrew Luck signed soon

Sun, 01 May 2016 05:48:01 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is having serious contract negotiations with the organization, and owner Jim Irsay said he would like Luck signed by the start of training camp in July.

Fantasy Tip: View Luck as a top-tier quarterback with the upside to be the No. 1 fantasy QB in 2016. Entering his fifth year in the league, Luck's fantasy floor is also attractive for those who target a set-and-forget quarterback early in drafts. However, he recently said he still isn't 100% healthy after dealing with shoulder and kidney injuries in 2015. Check back for updates on his status leading into the season.

Colts | Andrew Luck not at full health

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 14:41:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder, kidney) said he's not as healthy as he can be and that he still has work to do, although he did say he feels really good. Luck did he say he participated in everything during the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 18. Luck did not disclose a timeline for his rehabilitation or what he must do in order to complete a full recovery by Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL when he's healthy, but staying healthy has been tough for him lately. He had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL last season, and he tends to have a nitty, gritty playstyle, too. That being said, he's still worth taking as a top QB1.

Colts | Andrew Luck needs to learn to slide

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 09:51:43 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck needs to learn how to slide better in order to avoid big hits in games, according to owner Jim Irsay. Minor league baseball manager Dean Treanor has offered his services to teach Luck the proper way to slide. Luck suffered a lacerated kidney on a hit he took last season and missed extended time.

Fantasy Tip: Luck missed nine games last year because of his injury and was a huge disappointment to his fantasy owners. It remains to be seen what kind of damage Luck can do in Rob Chudzinski's offense, but he should remain in the top tier of starting quarterbacks.

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 11:45:51 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck was told by the Colts that he is not in their plans for next season. QB Josh Freeman is expected to back up QB Andrew Luck.

Fantasy Tip: It shouldn't be a surprise that Indianapolis wants to move on from a 40-year-old backup quarterback, especially after the beating Hasselbeck took last season. Luck is still arguably the best fantasy quarterback available despite missing most of last year with injuries.

Colts | Andrew Luck's new deal to be 'shocking'

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 10:39:52 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is in the final year of his rookie contract, but team owner Jim Irsay expects extension talks to begin in the coming months. "Andrew is going to be here. I don't know when that might be, but it's just a matter of time before we talk about this new contract and agreed to. It's going to be a big number. It's going to be a shocking number, nine figures and probably a $20 (million) starting point per year, but again we will find the right number to get to," Irsay told WISH-TV last week.

Fantasy Tip: Luck missed the final seven games of last season due to a lacerated kidney, but he has since recovered. The Colts know what they have in Luck, so their top priorities this offseason figure to be upgrading the offensive line and getting a deal done to keep their young quarterback in Indianapolis long-term. If the Colts can protect him better, he's an obvious bounce-back candidate with the ability to again be the top fantasy option at his position.

Colts | Good chance for new Andrew Luck deal?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 15:00:02 -0800

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is healthy and there's a good chance he'll receive a new deal this offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay. Irsay said there's a good chance the Colts and Luck can get a long-term deal done this offseason. There haven't been any major negotiations yet, but Irsay said that's going to be happening as March approaches.

Fantasy Tip: Luck was forced to watch from the sideline for the better part of the 2015 season, but that didn't lessen the faith the Colts have in him as their future star quarterback. When Luck is fully healthy he's a candidate to be the top overall fantasy quarterback.

Colts | Andrew Luck to be extended?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:28:49 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could receive a contract extension this offseason. The Colts have as much confidence in him now as they ever have.

Fantasy Tip: Luck has proven to be an elite quarterback when he's at full health. The injury bug really plagued Luck last year, which should turn out to be an anomaly. Continue to view him as a top-level QB1.

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 15:20:00 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could sign a contract extension this offseason as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. "If we don't get an agreement," owner Jim Irsay said, "we still have time. And he is going to be signed. There's a reasonably good chance we can come to that agreement this offseason. He will be here, trust me. Andrew and I have talked - we talked after the end of the season - and he couldn't be more excited."

Fantasy Tip: Luck will likely be one of the first QBs taken in next year's drafts.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) was previously in line for a deal that would have made him the richest quarterback in the NFL, but his lacerated kidney and lost 2015 season meant that deal never ended up getting done. He is only guaranteed for injury through 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Luck is likely going to get paid, as he has been mostly everything as advertised until this injury-plagued and forgettable 2015 season. If the Colts were foolish enough to go another route in the next year or two, there would be plenty of people lining up for Luck's services. The good news about 2015 for fantasy owners is that Luck will likely be a steal on draft day.

Colts | Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck won't go on IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:46:28 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QBs Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) and Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) won't be placed on the Reserve/Injured list in case the Colts make the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts have a very small chance of making the postseason, so don't expect to see Luck or Hasselbeck again this season. Luck's season was a huge disappointment, mainly due to injuries. But if he's back and healthy in 2016, he should be considered an upper-tier quarterback in fantasy drafts.

Colts | Andrew Luck out for Week 17

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:28:35 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) won't have time to get enough repetitions in practice this week, and he won't play in Week 17, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Fantasy Tip: Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is the likely starter, but he doesn't belong in your FantasyScore lineup against the Tennessee Titans.

Colts | Andrew Luck still not cleared

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:15:34 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) still hasn't received medical clearance Tuesday, Dec. 29, but he could play in Week 17 if he's cleared in time.

Fantasy Tip: Luck ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has no reason to risk his namesake against the Tennessee Titans in the regular season finale. Charlie Whitehurst ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely start, if his hamstring injury isn't severe. However, he shouldn't be your starter on FantasyScore.

Colts | Andrew Luck not cleared

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 15:37:28 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) said that he still isn't cleared for team drills. Luck wants to play in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans if he is cleared this week.

Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Luck's status throughout the week. If he's cleared and is expected to start against the Titans, he'd be a really sneaky sleeper pick on FantasyScore despite the fact that he's been out for a while. The Titans have been a really nice matchup for opposing quarterbacks for much of the year.
