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.

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.
