Colts not giving up on run game


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton says they'll be a "score-first team" instead of a run-first or pass-first team. Typical coachspeak, but Hamilton even would admit that as much as he wanted to run the ball last season, passing was far more effective. 

"When you have Andrew Luck, that really gives you an ability to adapt to whatever the circumstances are and have a chance to be successful," Hamilton said per ESPN, who believes the Colts will still aim to run the ball and not have Luck pass over and over again. Indianapolis ran the ball 409 times last year and threw it 582 times. The acquisition of Trent Richardson didn't pay off last season, but it doesn't mean wholesale changes this season. 

"Our mentality has not changed; we have to be physical at the point of attack. We have to try and knock people off the ball and wear them down physically," Hamilton said. "We have to have a sense of balance and still have a physical mentality, make up going into games so we can wear our opponents down how we see fit."


Surprising Blake Bortles pick won't pay off for Fantasy


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) The Jaguars must love Blake Bortles to take him over the likes of Sammy Watkins and Khalil Mack, two players they could have used. But Bortles is a big-armed, big-bodied quarterback who can run a little bit, sort of like how Andrew Luck can. We'd like it better if he was able to throw to Justin Blackmon every week, so until they can fix their receiving corps he's not going to be a stellar Fantasy pick. This is a long-term selection for the Jaguars and it should be that way for Fantasy too.

We're viewing Bortles as a second-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts, a mid- to late-round pick in keeper-league formats and a guy not worth a draft pick in standard seasonal play.

Jadeveon Clowney sends warning shot to Andrew Luck


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney had a message for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Clowney said if the Texans draft him No. 1 overall and pair him with defensive end J.J. Watt, Luck "better have his head on a swivel," reports Yahoo's Dan Wetzel.

The Texans play the Colts twice a year as AFC South rivals.


Hakeem Nicks' wish list: Colts, Panthers, Chargers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Free agent receiver Hakeem Nicks told ESPN he can see himself catching passes from the Colts' Andrew Luck, the Panthers' Cam Newton or the Chargers' Philip Rivers. Nicks failed to catch a touchdown pass with the Giants last season.

"Players have already started to reach out to me from other teams saying they would love for me to come join them," Nicks said. "I just want to make it clear that I want a long-term deal and I want to be happy. I'm excited about talking to teams and making it work."

Nicks earlier said he was open to a one-year deal.


Andrew Luck set to start in Pro Bowl


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) Chuck Pagano will start his Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck, in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, the Charlotte Observer has reported. Pagano added, however, that Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Eagles counterpart Nick Foles will see plenty of action.

Andrew Luck taking playoff loss hard


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is taking the team's playoff loss hard, according to NFL.com.

Luck said he feels like "a lost puppy" now that the season has ended. He added that he's looking forward to having a strong offseason, and that he hopes to get over the hump next season. Luck should have Reggie Wayne back from a torn ACL next season. The 35-year-old receiver recently said he plans to come back "better than before."


Andrew Luck throws career-worst four INTs in playoff loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck endured an up-and-down performance during Saturday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Patriots.

With his back against the wall, Luck had to throw his way out of it, and as a result, threw a career-worst four interceptions. Luck was picked off by Alfonzo Dennard on the opening drive of the game but bounced back with a 38-yard touchdown pass to LaVon Brazill in the first quarter.

Luck found Brazill again for a 35-yard strike in the third quarter but was picked off by Dont'a Hightower, Jamie Collins and Dennard once more. He completed 20 of 41 passes for 331 yards with two touchdowns in a 43-22 defeat.

Luck averaged 387.0 passing yards, with six touchdowns and seven interceptions through two postseason games. He finished the regular season with 3,822 yards passing , 23 touchdowns, nine interceptions and an 87.0 quarterback rating while completing 60.2 percent of his passes and also scoring four touchdowns on the ground.

Andrew Luck says Colts won't be impacted by weather


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said the team won't be impacted by weather.

The team has had to practice indoors due to extremely cold temperatures in the midwest, but Luck downplayed those issues. He added that the team has played in cold temperatures before, and that they "won't lose sleep over it."


Andrew Luck comes up big late in comeback


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) In his first playoff game a year ago, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck struggled mightily as the Ravens ran through the Colts in the Wild Card round. Early on Saturday against the Chiefs, it looked like more of the same, before Luck flipped the script to lead the way in an improbable 45-44 win. 

Luck and the Colts fell behind big early in the game, entering the second half down 31-10 with Luck struggling. He opened the second half with an interception, one of three on the day, but did just about everything else he needed to to get the win from that point on.

Luck ultimately finished the game with 443 yards through the air while completing 29 of 45 passes, and he added four touchdowns to make up for his three interceptions. He also scored on a fumble return on the goal line, while adding 45 yards on seven carries. 

Luck put it all on the table, good and bad, Saturday, and has earned the right to move on to the second round of the playoffs in his second season. His prize is the right to take on either the Broncos or Patriots on the road, depending on the outcome of Sunday's other Wild Card game. 


Andrew Luck held to one touchdown Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was limited to just one touchdown Week 17 against the Jaguars.

Luck finished the game 26 for 37, for 282 yards and a score. He also picked up 7 rushing yards on two attempts. Luck was effective, but the team turned to the running game once they got close to the red zone. In order to keep Luck healthy for the playoffs, the Colts pulled him near the end of the third quarter.


Andrew Luck a strong start Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is a strong play Week 17 against the Jaguars.

Jacksonville hasn't been effective against quarterbacks, allowing them to average 21.80 Fantasy points per game. The team has allowed 27.9 points per game on defense. Through 15 games, they've given up 28 passing touchdowns. The first time the two teams met this season, Luck threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns.

Though the Colts have clinched the AFC South, they still have something to play for Week 17. With a win, and losses by the Patriots and the Bengals, the Colts can clinch a bye. Luck has mostly been a low-upside play after losing wide receiver Reggie Wayne, but has twice thrown for at least three touchdowns over the past eight games. Considering how bad Jacksonville has been, there's a decent chance he makes it three times in his last nine games. 


Andrew Luck manages Colts to 10th win


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Andrew Luck completed 26 of 37 passes for 241 yards with a touchdown to help push the Colts to a 23-7 win over the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday. Luck added 5 rush yards and had no turnovers. 

Save for a fortuitious catch-and-run by Donald Brown for a touchdown and another nice 31-yard strike to T.Y. Hilton, Luck was more of a game manager than a stat machine. He had one other reception -- a 21-yard catch by Griff Whalen -- go for more than 20 yards. Each of his other 23 completions was for 17 yards or less. 

Luck has a solid matchup next week vs. division rival Jacksonville to end the regular season. He'll also play at home in the playoffs after that. 


Andrew Luck probably considered just a safe play Week 16


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) It's probably fair to say Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was a huge letdown for Fantasy owners in Week 15 after he was coming off a 40-point Fantasy performance the week before. Luck did throw two touchdowns Sunday vs. Houston, but he finished with just 180 passing yards and 19 Fantasy points.

Luck has been held to less than 20 Fantasy points in five of his last six games. He surpassed 20 Fantasy points five times in his first eight games. It's quite obvious to see how the absence of veteran receiver Reggie Wayne (knee) has impacted the passing game, particularly Luck's numbers.

Next up for Luck is Kansas City in Week 16. For the season, quarterbacks are averaging 17.6 Fantasy points per week against the Chiefs, which is tied for the 10th-lowest average. Only four quarterbacks have thrown for multiple touchdowns against Kansas City, and quarterbacks have tossed nearly as many interceptions (20) as touchdowns (21).

You might be surprised to know, but Luck enters Week 16 as a top 10 Fantasy quarterback. His early-season play has been a huge factor in earning that distinction. But if you look at his weekly production, he finished with less than 10 Fantasy points just once this season.

Luck is probably not a home-run option Week 16 because of the matchup. So if you are looking for potential sleepers, Jay Cutler, Ryan Tannehill and Kirk Cousins could be possible options to start over Luck this week.


Andrew Luck not needed in the second half


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Relying mostly on short, underneath routes, quarterback Andrew Luck got the Colts off to a quick start Week 15 against the Texans, leading the team on two touchdown drives in the first half for a 20-3 halftime lead.

It was so effective that, with the defense playing well, the passing game wasn't even needed in the second half. In all, Luck completed 19 of 32 passes for 180 yards, but in the second half, he was just 4 for 10 for 22 yards. Luck also had five carries for 29 yards, but then again, he also threw an interception, getting picked off by Johnathan Joseph in the first quarter. The Colts won the game 25-3.

It was a stark contrast to the Colts' previous meeting with the Texans in Week 9, when Luck threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns. The Texans were more competitive in that one, losing 27-24.

The Colts will visit the Chiefs in Week 16 for what figures to be a more even matchup.


Andrew Luck could defy matchup again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Though he appeared to have a tough matchup Week 14 at Cincinnati, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck turned in his best performance of the season, throwing for 326 yards and four touchdowns. He's a good bet to defy the odds again in Week 15 against a Texans team that ranks second against the pass, allowing 183.6 yards per game.

Despite the high ranking, the Texans have gotten burned by plenty of quarterbacks this season, allowing 23 touchdown passes while recording an NFL-low five interceptions. They've faced the Jaguars two of the last three weeks, which has certainly helped pad their stats, but against the Patriots in Week 13, they allowed 371 yards and two touchdowns to Tom Brady.

Luck himself had no trouble against the Texans in Week 9. In fact, from a Fantasy perspective, it was his third-best game of the season. He threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns. Granted, it was a more competitive game than the Texans have played in recent weeks, which required Luck to put up big numbers, but given Trent Richardson's struggles, the Colts are learning they have to rely on Luck's arm to win games.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both expect Luck to pick up where he left off, ranking him among their top-10 quarterbacks, but he's no lock. Nathan Zegura ranks him only 14th.


Andrew Luck has huge Week 14 game


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck completed 29-of-46 passes for 326 yards and a season-high four touchdowns in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Bengals. Luck completed passes to nine different players. 

This was Luck's third 300-yard game of the season, and his four passing touchdowns nearly equaled his output over his previous five games (he had thrown five total touchdowns since Week 9). Most of Luck's yardage -- along with two of his touchdowns -- came in the fourth quarter, as the Colts went pass-heavy to try and catch up. He connected twice with Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill on Sunday; the touchdowns were the first of the season for each receiver. 

The Colts host the Texans in Week 15. Luck threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns when the teams played in Week 9. 


Andrew Luck has tough Week 14 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck hasn't hit the 20-Fantasy point mark since Week 9. He's thrown just two touchdowns against five interceptions over his last four games, and hasn't gone over 235 passing yards in his last three. 

His Week 14 opponent, the Bengals, are a terrible matchup. They haven't allowed a quarterback to reach 20 Fantasy points since Week 7. In the last five games, the Bengals have allowed four passing touchdowns and have intercepted eight passes. 

This is not the week you want to depend on Luck to perform. He has been off ever since Reggie Wayne went down, and while Coby Fleener is emerging as a solid second target, T.Y. Hilton has dropped off considerably. The erratic run game has not helped matters. 

There's always a chance Luck breaks out (there's always a chance that any quarterback breaks out, though). But as long as he's left with that Reggie Wayne void, Luck can be benched in standard formats for better options. 


Andrew Luck still sliding, but comes out on top against Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is still in a slump that has plagued him over the last four games, but he did wind up on the right side of the score Sunday against Tennessee.

He completed 17 of 32 passes for 200 yards, no touchdowns and a first-possession interception. He has just two scoring passes and five picks in those four games. He was 8 of 18 at one point in the second quarter before recovering to complete his next four for 54 yards before halftime.

Luck, who threw for a mere 37 yards in the second half and was sacked five times, registered a quarterback rating of 59.4 for the game. He will attempt to turn his fortunes around against a tough Bengals defense next Sunday in Cincinnati.


Andrew Luck in need of big game


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has struggled of late heading into his Week 13 matchup against the Titans. It could be tough for him to snap out of his recent struggles against Tennessee.

Luck has gone three games in a row with fewer than 20 Fantasy points, including his Week 11 meeting with the Titans in Tennessee when he scored 18. In his past three games, Luck is averaging 249 passing yards with three total touchdowns and four interceptions.

Against the Titans, Luck was 23 of 36 passing for 232 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions, and he ran nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown. But the Titans have been stingy against opposing quarterbacks all season.

Only Matt Schaub in Week 2 scored multiple touchdowns against Tennessee, and Schaub is the only quarterback to score more than 20 Fantasy points, including matchups with Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. 

Luck is better at home than on the road, but this matchup could be tough for him to overcome. We consider him just a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback this week.


Andrew Luck held in check Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was limited to just one touchdown Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Luck had a tough time getting anything going against the Cardinals. He completed 20 passes in 39 attempts, picking up 163 yards. Luck was limited to just 4.2 yards per completion against Arizona. His main target, T.Y. Hilton, was locked down most of the game by Patrick Peterson. Luck was only sacked once, but the Cardinals hit him eight total times. They also forced Luck to toss an interception. Luck was able to somewhat salvage the poor performance, throwing for a 17 yard touchdown to Coby Fleener in the fourth quarter. He also completed a two-point conversion attempt. 

Luck will look to get things going Week 13 against the Titans.


Andrew Luck ready for Arizona


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is facing a middle-of-the-road opponent Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Arizona ranks 15th against opposing Fantasy quarterbacks, allowing 18.40 Fantasy points per game. The team's pass defense has been inconsistent, limiting Cam Newton and Matt Ryan to just one combined passing touchdown, but allowing Case Keenum to throw for three scores. Even in games where they have struggled, Arizona still manages to disrupt the passing game. The team has picked off 14 passes already this year. 

Luck has excelled in that area this season, cutting his interceptions from 18 to just six through 10 games. Luck has also been somewhat inconsistent in the passing game. He's been held without a passing touchdown three times this year. In two games, Luck only tossed one touchdown. In his other five games, he's racked up multiple touchdowns through the air. Luck's rushing ability has saved him in some of those games. The quarterback has already scored four touchdowns on the ground, the same amount as Cam Newton. A rushing touchdown might be what puts him over the top this week against the Cardinals.


Andrew Luck finds the end zone with feet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck didn't strike for many big plays in Week 11 against the Titans, but he did find the end zone once in a 30-27 win.

Luck completed 23 of 36 passes for 232 yards in the game, but failed to pass for a touchdown for the first time in four games. He did avoid turnovers well, just one week after coughing it up three times. Luck added a rushing touchdown, his fourth of the season, while scampering for 31 yards, his highest total since Week 2.

Luck managed the game well, though he has now failed to throw a touchdown in two of his last five games. He will try to get back on track in his next game, in Week 12 against the Cardinals. 


Andrew Luck has tough Week 11 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck -- coming off a season-high 353 passing yards in Week 10 -- has a tough week 11 matchup against the Titans on Thursday night.

Tennessee has allowed 12.9 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, the fourth-lowest average in the league. The Titans last allowed a quarterback to score 20 Fantasy points in Week 2 -- the only time it has happened this season. 

The Titans have allowed one passing touchdown since Week 5. And only one quarterback has thrown multiple touchdowns in a game. Luck had thrown three touchdowns in each of the two games prior to Week 10 (when he threw one), and has five multiple touchdown games this season. 

Luck may struggle Thursday night against a tough Titans defense. If you have better options on your roster, it might be a good idea to bench Luck. Otherwise, cross your fingers and hope that the Colts can find some way to exploit the Tennessee defense. 


Five Colts players contribute during Week 10 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Colts fullback Stanley Havili, running back Dan Herron, wide receiver Griff Whalen, wide receiver LaVon Brazill and wide receiver David Reed all made it onto the stat sheet during a 38-8 loss Week 10 vs. St. Louis.

Havili had one carry for 1 yard, while adding three catches for 25 yards.

Herron had one carry for no gain and one catch for 57 yards. In fact, Herron almost scored on his 57-yard catch-and-run, but he was pulled down at the 3-yard line late in the fourth quarter.

Whalen had three catches for 36 yards. His longest catch went 25 yards and he was targeted five times.

Brazill had one catch for 11 yards, despite five targets. Brazill was targeted multiple times in the end zone. He was targeted on a 53-yard pass from Andrew Luck in the first half, but the pass was too far in front of Brazill in the end zone. Brazill was targeted three times by quarterback Matt Hasselbeck when the Colts got down to the Rams' 3-yard line. The last target near the goal line, however, was intercepted.

Reed initially had a 4-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but the play was reversed to a 2-yard catch after it was ruled Reed stepped out of bounds before scoring.

The Colts are back in action Week 11 at Tennessee.


Andrew Luck throws three interceptions in surprising loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Sunday's game against the Rams was supposed to be a cakewalk for quarterback Andrew Luck and the AFC South leading Colts. Well, someone forget to tell the Rams.

Luck was intercepted three times and eventually sat out the final two offensive series during a 38-8 blowout loss Week 10. Luck completed 29 of 47 passes for 353 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for a team-high 17 yards.

The Rams brought pressure from the get-go Sunday, which seemed to keep Luck off balance all afternoon. Luck was sacked and stripped of the football on the sixth play of the game. It was recovered by St. Louis and returned by Chris Long for a 45-yard touchdown. Luck had a terrible first half, completing 12 of 23 passes for 93 yards.

It didn't get much better for Luck in the second half. He was picked off in the end zone on the opening drive in the third quarter, as he targeted Darrius Heyward-Bey on a 9-yard touchdown. Luck then threw his second interception on the next drive. Luck's final interception came in the fourth quarter, as he targeted Coby Fleener in the end zone for a 13-yard touchdown.

Luck did have a 13-yard touchdown pass to Donald Brown in the second half. He came close to a second touchdown twice in the fourth quarter. However, a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Reed was overturned after a review showed Reed stepped out at the 2-yard line. A few plays later, Luck dove at the goal line for what could have been a 6-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-goal play, but he was stopped at the goal line.

The Colts are back in action Week 11 at Tennessee.
