Andrew Luck delivers three more touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) After accounting for three touchdowns in the season opener, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw three short scoring passses in Monday night's 30-27 loss to the Eagles. It was Luck's fifth career game with at least three touchdown passes.

Luck completed 20 of 34 throws for 172 yards and rushed four times for 20 yards. However, Luck was picked off in the fourth quarter with Indy driving to put the game away. Receiver T.Y. Hilton was clearly held on the play, but no flag was thrown.

Luck found running back Ahmad Bradshaw for two of his touchdowns, tight end Jack Doyle for the other. Luck visits the Jaguars in Week 3 looking for his first victory of the season.

Andrew Luck goes for 370 yards, 3 TDs in losing effort


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck overcame a slow start to finish with 370 passing yards and three total touchdowns in a 31-24 loss to the Broncos. Luck, however, was picked off twice, giving him nine interceptions in his last three games dating to the 2013 playoffs.

Luck threw for 252 yards after halftime as he nearly rallied Indy from a 24-0 deficit. He finished 35 of 53 passing with two touchdowns and ran five times for 19 yards, including a 9-yard score right before halftime in which he dove for the pylon. Luck got stuffed on a 4th-and-goal sneak in the third quarter.

Playing behind a makeshift line, Luck took three sacks and was hit at least six times. He kept firing and, with the Colts trailing 31-10 in the fourth quarter, found his rhythm. Tight end Dwayne Allen tiptoed down the sideline for a 41-yard touchdown catch, and wideout Hakeem Nicks made a juggling 9-yard scoring grab to pull the Colts within seven.

On 4th-and-6 from the Denver 39 with under two minutes left, Luck tried to hit Reggie Wayne over the middle but the pass was broken up and the Broncos ran out the clock.

Luck faces the Eagles in Week 2 on Monday Night Football.


Conditions ripe for Andrew Luck explosion


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck enters the season with the same offensive coordinator for the first time since he was a college sophomore. He's got a much better arsenal to throw to, with a healthy Dwayne Allen and Reggie Wayne joining T.Y. Hilton, Coby Fleener and free agent acquisition Hakeem Nicks.

With Trent Richardson stuck in mud and the offensive line not blowing anyone off the ball, Indy will lean more heavily on Luck's passing this year. He's set up for a monster year, beginning Sunday night in Denver.

"Last year with some new guys around him, he had to adapt and adjust," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton told NFL reporter Dan Pompei. "Now, things are coming together as far as having an entire arsenal of weapons and having a good understanding of what we are doing offensively. We have a feel for what he is most comfortable with as it pertains to what we use in our system."

Luck shredded Denver last year, accounting for four touchdowns and 35 Fantasy points. The Broncos have retooled, but it's not as if their schemes will fluster him. Roll with Luck as a Top-5 option in this primetime shootout.


Andrew Luck has mixed results Saturday vs. Saints


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a touchdown and was picked off once during Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

Luck hooked up with Coby Fleener for a 21-yard touchdown strike in the first quarter, but was picked off by Kenny Vaccaro later in the period. He played into the third quarter and compiled 103 yards through the air while completing 10 of 18 passes. He was sacked once and registered a 67.6 quarterback rating.

Andrew Luck looks sharp in preseason game No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck looked sharp and appeared to be in midseason form Saturday night against the Giants in exhibition play.

Luck fired a 5-yard touchdown strike to Griff Whalen on the second drive of the night. Luck played into the second quarter and worked four series with the first-team offense. He compiled 89 yards through the air while completing 12 of 18 passes. He also added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 96.8 passer rating.

Luck has 142 passing yards through two preseason games. He will look to keep rolling Aug. 23 against the Saints.

Andrew Luck sharp in 2014 debut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck led his team to a field goal on the opening drive against the Jets, then gave way to backup Matt Hasselbeck. Luck hit 4 of 5 throws for 53 yards. The drive stalled when backup center Jonotthan Harrison made a bad snap.

With Reggie Wayne sitting out, Luck targeted T.Y. Hilton three times and Hakeem Nicks twice. Luck connected with Hilton on all three attempts for 38 yards. Luck faces the Giants on Saturday, Aug. 16 in the second preseason game.


Andrew Luck 'way ahead of anywhere he's ever been'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Colts coach Chuck Pagano sounds pleased with what he's seen in camp from quarterback Andrew Luck, who's thrown for 46 touchdowns and run for nine more in his first two seasons. "He's way ahead of anywhere he's ever been," Pagano said.

Andrew Luck headed for career season


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been good for Fantasy owners the past two years. This year, he has the chance to be great.

Luck is a breakout candidate for a career season in 2014 because of his upgraded receiving corps with an improved T.Y. Hilton, the addition of Hakeem Nicks and the return to health of Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen.

For more on Luck's potential and how to approach drafting him, check out my breakout column here.


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.
