Colts | Indy working on deal with Andrew Luck

Sun, 18 Jan 2015 09:51:20 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has been working with the team on a contract extension that could be the richest contract in the NFL, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Luck had an outstanding 2014 regular season with 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns. Luck should be one of the top quarterbacks for years to come and will be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues next season.

Colts | Andrew Luck hasn't beaten Pats

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 09:18:26 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is 0-3 and has thrown eight interceptions in his three career games against the New England Patriots. "I'd like to think I'm a better quarterback and we're a better team and more well-equipped to handle the unknown and the unforeseen," said Luck, who threw for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 42-20 loss to the Patriots at home Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: The way Luck has been playing, it's hard not to consider him at FantasyScore against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game, despite Luck's poor results against the Pats in a small sample size.

Colts | Andrew Luck struggles on road in playoffs

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 13:41:41 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is 0-2 with a 50.5 completions percentage with two touchdowns and five interceptions in the playoffs on the road in his career. At home in the playoffs, he's 2-0 with a 67.4 completion percentage with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: It's a small sample size, but definitely something worth considering when trying to choose your QB at FantasyScore this weekend. Luck ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) is the most expensive player this weekend, which will make it tough for him to return value for you, even if the Colts are forced to play catchup all day long against the Denver Broncos.

Colts | Andrew Luck shows maturity

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 15:53:15 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was often forced to throw the ball underneath to keep drives going against the Cincinnati Bengals in the wild-card playoff win last weekend. Luck targeted RB Dan Herron 11 times, and the running back caught 10 of those for 85 yards. Luck was also 7-for-11 for 126 yards and a touchdown on blitzes. He also didn't commit a turnover after turning the ball over 22 times during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Luck ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) had a breakout season in 2014, and he carried that momentum into the playoffs. Despite being the most expensive FantasyScore option this weekend, he could still be a good choice for your daily lineups against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have a solid defense this year, but Luck and the Colts could very well be playing catchup all game long.

Colts | Indy to rely on passing game

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 10:53:58 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and the passing game is expected to be leaned on even more in the team's Wild Card game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Jan. 4, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. "Our emphasis is to just try and score every time we touch the football," Hamilton said. "If that's (by) running the football, that's great. Ideally we want to have balance in our offense. But at this point, we have to accentuate our strengths and do what we do best and find ways to score." Indianapolis led the league in passing this year with a league-high 4,894 passing yards (306 per game). Luck led the NFL with 40 touchdown passes. The Colts rank 22nd in rushing yards per game this year (100.8) and 25th in yards per carry (3.9).

Fantasy Tip: Luck ($8,600; 17.2% of cap) is the highest-priced player at FantasyScore this weekend. He's put up big numbers this year, but he also has turned the ball over frequently. In the playoffs, if Indy becomes too one-dimensional, it'll likely hurt Luck tremendously. He's a risky option at such a high price point.

Colts | Andrew Luck to play in Week 17?

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 18:02:57 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is expected to play in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans. Despite the fact the team has nothing to gain in the regular season finale, the team is generally speaking about playing to win against the Titans, as they look to build some steam heading into the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Luck might very well play, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him limited to a half or a few quarters if the team builds a big lead or falls behind. FantasyScore owners likely want to avoid this situation.

Colts | Andrew Luck removed early

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 15:03:03 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was lifted late in the third quarter of the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: The game was lopsided, and there was little to no chance of Indianapolis improving their playoff seeding anyway. Luck finished the day 15 of 22 for 109 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Matt Hasselbeck replaced Luck.

Colts | Andrew Luck having fumble issues

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 05:46:35 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has 12 fumbles this season, six of which were lost. That's the most of any player, regardless of position, in the league. He has six fumbles in the last three games. He has also thrown the third-most interceptions in the league with 13.

Fantasy Tip: Luck ($9,000; 18.0% of your cap) is the highest-priced player in FantasyScore this week. Proceed with caution.

Colts | Andrew Luck struggling in first quarter

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:33:17 -0800

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is 10-for-23 for 117 yards and just one touchdown, five turnovers and six sacks in the first quarter of the team's last three games. "If anything, it's frustrating. It's my bonehead mistakes," Luck said. "It's the nature of the team, the way coach Pagano coaches. You just play football. Whatever happened on the last play, good or bad, you move on. I think by and large, our guys do that. We have a good play -- great -- on to the next play. Something bad happens, we have to move on and atone for it."

Fantasy Tip: This is nitpicking a small sample size of what otherwise has been a fantastic season for Luck. Against a Houston Texans secondary that has allowed many big plays this year, Luck should be a good option for your FantasyScore lineups this weekend for $9,000.

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:16:35 -0800
