Colts QB Andrew Luck remains on roll in burying Bengals
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/19/14) Colts prolific quarterback Andrew Luck didn't need to be lights-out Sunday against Cincinnati with his defense pitching a shutout.
But he was anyway.
Luck finished 27 of 42 for 344 yards, two touchdowns (giving him 19 on the year) and no interceptions in burying the Bengals. It was his fifth consecutive 300-yard performance. Not bad considering he threw for minus-1 yard on the team's first possession.
One of the touchdowns was a touch-lob over a defender to tight end Dwayne Allen that was taken 32 yards into the end zone.
Luck will seek to keep it rolling in Week 8 against the Steelers.
Andrew Luck is amazing
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/10/14) How much fun is it to own Colts quarterback Andrew Luck right now? He's off to an amazing start this season, and he was awesome again Thursday night at Houston.
Luck was 25-of-44 passing for 370 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, and he added 18 rushing yards with a fumble. In standard leagues, he was good for 29 Fantasy points, which is now four times this season that he's scored at least 29 points.
He hasn't scored less than 22 Fantasy points in any game this year, and we don't see him slowing down any time soon. He faces the Bengals at home in Week 7, which isn't an easy matchup, but Luck should be considered a Top 5 Fantasy quarterback the rest of the season.
His breakout year is happening before our eyes, and we love how dominant Luck has become. And, to get you even more excited, he closes the year with plus matchups against Jacksonville, Washington, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas and Tennessee from Week 12 on. He's going to be awesome come Fantasy playoff time.
Colts' Andrew Luck fires three touchdown passes in Week 6 win
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/9/14) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck got off to a fast start in a Week 6 victory over the Texans in Houston on Thursday.
Luck threw a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter. He found Ahmad Bradshaw for a 5-yard touchdown strike and then fired a 4-yard dart to Coby Fleener on the final play of the period. Luck had his pass tipped by Jared Crick at the line and picked off by Justin Tuggle in the second quarter. He bounced back with a 33-yard strike to T.Y. Hilton in the third quarter.
Luck compiled for 370 yards through the air while completing 25 of 44 passes. He added three touchdowns and one interception, registering a 97.7 passer rating. He rushed for 19 yards on seven carries and was sacked three times in a 33-28 victory. He has 1,987 passing yards through six games.
The Colts will host the Bengals in Week 7.
Even when he's not great, Andrew Luck is pretty good
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/5/14) Even when things aren't going well for elite quarterbacks, they find a way to pick Fantasy owners up. At this point, there is little question that Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is among the ranks of the league's elite.
Last week, I wondered if Luck was the best quarterback for Fantasy purposes around. While Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers might have something to say about that, Luck has certainly put himself in that discussion, and he showed why again in Week 5 against the Ravens.
Luck turned the ball over twice, but still racked up 21 Fantasy points Sunday. He remains an incredibly effective scrambler, a dangerous weapon given how much he has improved as a passer. He has tossed 300-plus yards in four of five games, and now has multiple touchdowns in each.
The Colts have had Luck sling the ball around 43.2 times per game, and it is hard to argue with the results. Luck has some tough matchups coming up, but you cannot even think about sitting him at this point.
Colts' Andrew Luck scores twice in win over Baltimore
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/5/14) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was not at his best but still managed to crack the 300-yard mark in a Week 5 victory at home over the Ravens on Sunday.
Luck showed some struggles early on and was picked off twice by Haloti Ngata in the first quarter and was limited to 109 passing yards in the first half. Luck fired a 6-yard touchdown strike to Dwayne Allen in the third quarter and scored on a 13-yard scamper in the fourth quarter to put the game away. It was his second rushing touchdown of the season.
Luck compiled 312 yards through the air while completing 32 of 49 passes. He added one touchdown and two interceptions in the air, registering a 72.8 passer rating. He was sacked once and rushed for 12 yards on six carries in a 20-13 victory.
Luck has surpassed the 300-yard mark in all but one of his first five games. He'll look to continue that trend at Houston in Week 6.

Manning breaks Favre's TD mark in 42-17
DENVER (AP) Peyton Manning's receivers played keep-away with his milestone memento and the NFL's new leader in career touchdown passes toyed with the San Francisco 49ers in the Denver Broncos' 42-17 victory Sunday night.
|Accolades have been poured on to Andrew Luck since arriving in the league in 2012, but there's one thing we can't call him just yet: An elite Fantasy quarterback. As a rookie he had just six games with 20-plus Fantasy points and he didn't improve on it in his second season. So even though he finished as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback both seasons and even had more Fantasy points in 2013 despite 552 fewer passing yards, he wasn't exactly consistent. The good news is that the Colts will absolutely surround Luck with tons of good receivers, giving him every opportunity to post career-highs. Hakeem Nicks was signed away from the Giants for the year, Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen are back following knee injuries and the offensive line should find an upgrade or two. This should all result in Luck still running an efficient offense but completing more passes and coming up with better numbers and, hopefully, developing consistency for Fantasy purposes. Of course he's still held in high regard as a No. 1 quarterback, one you should be able to snare at a good value in drafts starting in Round 6.
