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.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has a lot more talent than his futile 16-109-1 line shows, and he had eight TDs in 2014. He'll be a sneaky TE2 flyer in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: AJ had a disappointing 41-503-4 season, but he could catch on elsewhere and still be a factor in PPR leagues. He'll be a WR5 flyer near the end of drafts.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri said he plans on playing a 21st season in the NFL and maybe more. Vinatieri will be 43 when training camp starts in August. Vinatieri is expected to re-sign with the Colts, too. He missed just three field goals in 58 attempts in the last two years with Indianapolis. Vinatieri is also third all time in made field goals (503).
Fantasy Tip: Age is just a number, right? Vinatieri remains one of the NFL's most efficient booters, and his fantasy value should remain high in Indy, especially with Andrew Luck expected to return healthy and boost the offense's potential.

Fantasy Tip: If Fleener or Allen doesn't return, then Doyle will indubitably see more snaps next season, but still probably not enough to warrant starter consideration.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck could have a new backup next season if impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck does not return. QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley are both still under contract and would be next in line to back up Luck.

Fantasy Tip: Vinatieri is one of the most accomplished kickers in the history of football, and he's still reliable even at age 43. Remember him in the later rounds of your fantasy drafts.

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.

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.
