Huddle Up: The fact that Luck still doesn't appear all that close to returning to football activities suggests he won't be ready next week either, which makes it even more confusing why he wasn't put on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to the season. Luck is still worth a hold at the moment, but it may become more difficult to do so as the bye weeks start affecting roster decisions. Jacoby Brissett will get another start but is not worth fantasy consideration in most leagues.
Posted: 9/18/2017 1:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Jacoby Brissett will likely remain under center for the Colts. He's done nothing to write home about so far this year, but he has only played about a game and a half. Brissett is startable in two-quarterback leagues, but he can be avoided other than that.
Posted: 9/11/2017 1:47pm ET
Huddle Up: The Colts have been somewhat secretive as to the full disclosure of Luck's health and timeline. We know they think he can be back before midseason or they would have put him on short-term Injured Reserve. As it stands, only T.Y. Hilton and Frank Gore garner weekly starter consideration as flex options.
Posted: 9/6/2017 3:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has already been ruled out for the Week 1 game, so it's not much of a surprise that he was a spectator in practice. Scott Tolzien has already been tabbed as the starter against the Rams for the opener.
Posted: 9/4/2017 8:14am ET
Huddle Up: It could be multiple weeks before he's able to play since he really didn't have a training camp. Scott Tolzien will start in his place, and he's a massive downgrade from Luck - obviously. T.Y. Hilton and the rest of the receivers will lose some luster, as expected, as long as Luck is out. Conversely, TE Jack Doyle could be a sneaky value with the backup quarterback in. RB Frank Gore could be utilized heavily early on, and he receives a slight boost. As for Tolzien, he's only of use in leagues that start two quarterbacks against the Los Angeles Rams.
Posted: 9/2/2017 1:12pm ET
Huddle Up: This move is a formality so he doesn't remain on the list into the regular season. Luck is still unlikely to play in Week 1.
Posted: 8/31/2017 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck will need to take part in some practices before he is ready to play in a game, so he could miss the first few weeks of the season. Luck is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but owners will need to have another solid quarterback on their roster to use until Luck returns.
Posted: 8/31/2017 6:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck would miss the first six weeks of the season if he stayed on the PUP list, so he will now be able to practice as soon as possible. It appears like Luck will miss at least one regular season game, but owners could still consider him a No. 1 quarterback if he only misses two or three games.
Posted: 8/30/2017 5:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Luck's practice participation next week to have a better understanding of his status for Week 1. Luck can still be a No. 1 fantasy option in leagues if he only misses a few games, but owners would need a strong backup to use in the first few weeks.
Posted: 8/24/2017 5:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck's shoulder concerns continue to linger and it looks like he's on track to miss the first game or two -- if not more. There's no doubt the former No. 1 overall draft pick is one of the best quarterbacks in the game when he is healthy, but his health could continue to be an issue even after he does return. Thus, owners might be better off seeking a safer option with their QB1.
Posted: 8/22/2017 1:16pm ET
Huddle Up: The Colts are creeping close to crunch time and Luck has yet to practice. He's inching closer to the short-term IR list by the day. Luck is a QB1 as long as he avoids that list, but use extreme caution.
Posted: 8/13/2017 1:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck is working his way back from the surgery and his status for the start of the regular season is in question but it seems like he is making progress. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy and will have a solid group of receivers to work with in 2017. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues, but owners will need a strong backup in case Luck misses a few games.
Posted: 8/9/2017 8:43am ET
Huddle Up: The cloud of question over his Week 1 status speaks resoundingly. The team is being super cautious with him, and it makes sense. The more we hear from the team, the greater the possibility blooms that he won't be ready for the start of the season. He's a high-end QB1 in fantasy, but you have to start considering how much he's ahead of that next tier of two or three players.
Posted: 8/8/2017 10:56am ET
Huddle Up: Ideally, Luck would have started throwing a football sometime in mid-to-late July. By all accounts, he has yet to do so. Even if he has and the team isn't reporting it, his lack of practice does not bode well for him to start the season out on fire. Luck remains in the QB1 conversation, but there are enough other good quarterbacks that owners should not feel bad about letting someone else assume the risk-reward associated with him in the sixth round or later.
Posted: 8/1/2017 6:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Bremer suggests general manager Chris Ballard's statement about Luck's injury status last week stands. There still have been no reports the quarterback has actually started throwing a football yet, so it's hard to get overly optimistic he will be ready Week 1. He will remain a dicey QB1 investment in early August drafts until he is actually cleared to practice.
Posted: 8/1/2017 2:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Pagano is right; the Colts don't want to make matters worse by bringing their franchise quarterback back before he's ready. If Luck does start the season on the PUP list then veteran backup Scott Tolzien would likely start. Monitor this situation as the season nears.
Posted: 8/1/2017 10:32am ET
Huddle Up: All Luck needs to do now is get his shoulder right, which is a concern. Assuming that happens early in the season, Luck should enjoy better protection than he has been afforded over the first five years of his career. Until he is cleared to throw a football, he needs to be considered a high-risk, high-reward QB1.
Posted: 7/29/2017 8:51am ET
Huddle Up: Luck did confirm he was throwing a tennis ball but did not confirm whether or not he has thrown a football yet. Although the Colts continue to express no urgency regarding their quarterback, owners need to push him down their rankings and assume he will be limited in some way for at least the first month of the season until he can prove that won't be the case. Luck may end up becoming a mid-round value who becomes a steal, but he is very much a risky proposition at the moment.
Posted: 7/25/2017 6:56am ET
Huddle Up: Luck has begun the throwing part of his rehab, and he's expected to be ready for the start of the season. He remains a high-end option as a QB1.
Posted: 7/24/2017 10:08am ET
Huddle Up: The team has been pretty mum on his status, but they have said all along he's expected to be ready for the season. Even if he were to miss a game or two, he still remains a high-end QB1 in fantasy.
Posted: 7/13/2017 6:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite the fact he is coming off shoulder surgery, Luck should still be viewed as a QB1 as long as the outlook remains positive. He could easily finish as a top-five option at his position.
Posted: 7/8/2017 8:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Hilton tends to be overlooked a bit in fantasy circles, but he led the NFL in receiving yards last year and is the go-to target for one of the NFL's best quarterbacks. As long as Luck remains on track for the start of the season, you can feel confident snagging Hilton as a low-end WR1.
Posted: 6/28/2017 9:04am ET
Huddle Up: While it is entirely possible the Colts are just playing it safe by giving their quarterback as much time as they can to get his shoulder right, Luck is running the risk of suffering an arm injury in camp if he tries to overdo it in an effort to catch up. There's still no hint of pessimism regarding his Week 1 status, but owners may want to knock him down a peg or two on their draft board until he is cleared to throw.
Posted: 6/13/2017 4:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck will be one of the bigger stories to keep an eye on as the offseason progresses. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks he should be ready for the start of the regular season at least. That being said, it's fine to draft him as a starting fantasy quarterback again this year.
Posted: 6/13/2017 9:26am ET
Huddle Up: Luck is expected to be ready for the season, but he may be idle until at least training camp. He remains a high-end QB1 option in fantasy.
Posted: 6/9/2017 5:24am ET
Huddle Up: Luck's health has been spotty the last couple of years due to an abomination of an offensive line allowing him to be hit more frequently. However, he still has some of the best pure talent at the position. He's still a high-end QB1 in fantasy.
Posted: 6/6/2017 3:35pm ET
Huddle Up: There is some cause for concern with Luck, but it is only early June. His surgery happened in January so that he would ideally recover in time for the regular season. As of now, continue to draft Luck as a QB1, but keep tabs on his status as the offseason progresses.
Posted: 4/17/2017 4:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Luck likely will not do anything until training camp at the earliest. Luck is one of the better quarterbacks when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, but owners may want a strong backup in case Luck is not ready.
Posted: 3/28/2017 5:39am ET
Huddle Up: Luck is a top three or four quarterback option in fantasy when healthy. The team is being cryptic as to what he actually had repaired in his shoulder, but there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for the season.
Posted: 3/3/2017 2:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck probably will not do much during the offseason and will have several months to recover from his shoulder surgery. Luck should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 as long as he is completely healthy.
Posted: 3/1/2017 4:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when Luck will be back on the field. There is a chance that he does not participate in any offseason workouts and could wait until the start of training camp. Luck should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.
Posted: 1/19/2017 8:24am ET
Huddle Up: Luck will be ready right around the start of training camp, and it shouldn't hinder his prospects for the 2017 season. His 2016 was on par, but just below, his big 2014 season. We're still awaiting that full blossom from him, and he'll be in the mix of second-tier QBs in fantasy drafts.
Posted: 1/19/2017 5:18am ET
Huddle Up: Luck had a decent year that was in line with his 2014 season, but he really hasn't hit that next gear to truly be the best QB in fantasy that he was projected to be. Injuries and the offensive line have been issues, but he's still one of the top three or four options on draft day.
Posted: 1/2/2017 9:57pm ET
Huddle Up: It was another excellent fantasy season for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as he also finished with 31 touchdown passes compared to 15 interceptions. Furthermore, he logged a 96.4 quarterback rating, which goes down as the second highest of his career. Going into next season, Luck could arguably end up being the best value at quarterback, typically being selected in fantasy drafts after the usual suspects, yet he's still capable of topping them all in production. Have him on your QB1 radar in 2017.
Posted: 1/1/2017 5:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck finished with 31 TDs, his second-highest total in five NFL seasons. He re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in 2016, proving he is a must-have starter after his injury-marred 2015 season.
Posted: 12/30/2016 2:41pm ET
Huddle Up: This is par for the course for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as he typically is limited throughout the week before getting in a full practice on Fridays. Luck is a QB1 option on a weekly basis, and even in the Colts' meaningless season finale, that will remain the case opposite the Jaguars.
Posted: 12/29/2016 2:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has played through a plethora of injuries this year, including to his throwing shoulder. The Jacksonville Jaguars have an underrated defense, but Luck is still a QB1 consideration for those in Week 17 championship tilts.
Posted: 12/24/2016 7:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has two or more touchdown pases in each of his past five games, and nine of the past 11. He remains a must-start fantasy option despite the fact he hasn't had a 300-yard game since Oct. 23, a span of seven games.
Posted: 12/23/2016 2:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has thrown for at least 250 yards in each of his last five games and has thrown 11 touchdowns and five interceptions during that span. He should be considered a solid No. 1 quarterback in leagues because he should have all of his pass catchers available.
Posted: 12/22/2016 2:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries this year and throughout his career. He's used to playing injured and this week will be no different. Fortunately, he and the Colts face an Oakland Raiders pass defense that is quite accommodating. Luck is a high-end QB1 for Week 16.
Posted: 12/21/2016 2:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has QB1 potential no matter who he plays, but the Minnesota Vikings have not been kind to passing offense in 2016. Start him if he's your best option, but Luck is in low-end QB1 territory this week.
Posted: 12/18/2016 6:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has two or more touchdown strikes in each of his past four games, and six of the past seven. He hasn't had a 300-yard game since Week 7, but he remains a must-start fantasy option across the board.
Posted: 12/16/2016 12:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck is usually a safe QB1 option to deploy, but he may be on the lower end of that conversation this week with an ultra-tough matchup opposite the Vikings. Even so, he's been too good for fantasy owners to suddenly abandon during the most important stretch of the campaign.
Posted: 12/15/2016 2:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has played pretty well this year despite injuries and a soft offensive line. That being said, he'll be on the road against one of the better pass defenses in the NFL in the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota has only yielded 15 passing touchdowns while picking off 12 passes. There may not be better choices, but Luck is more risky than normal this week.
Posted: 12/15/2016 8:52am ET
Huddle Up: Luck tossed for 276 yards, two scores and two picks last week. He faces a stout Minnesota Vikings defense, and he's an upper-middle option in Week 15.
Posted: 12/15/2016 8:23am ET
Huddle Up: Luck was 24-for-45 for 276 yards, two scores and two picks last week. He'll face a tough Minnesota Vikings defense this week, which makes him an upper-middle QB1 in Week 15.
Posted: 12/14/2016 11:37am ET
Huddle Up: Owners should check on Luck's status later in the week but probably will be back at practice in the near future. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 15 but can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.
Posted: 12/11/2016 9:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Luck has eight touchdown passes and three interceptions over the past three games, although he hasn't had a 300-yard passing performance in five straight outings. He remains a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 15.
Posted: 12/9/2016 1:28pm ET
Huddle Up: It's not a concern regarding his status for Sunday, as the Colts typically manage his reps throughout the week. As is always the case, Luck will take the field as a QB1 for fantasy teams of all leagues.
Posted: 12/8/2016 3:13pm ET
Huddle Up: This is just par for the course for the former No. 1 overall draft pick, as Luck is generally held to limited reps throughout the week. As usual, he'll enter this weekend as a QB1.
