Andrew Luck still not throwing 'the Duke'

by Anthony Cervino | Mon, Apr 9th 6:52pm EDT

MMQB's Albert Breer is reporting Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has yet to throw an official-sized NFL football. "I have not picked up The Duke and started throwing it yet. I don't want to skip steps," Luck said on Monday. "I'm trusting the process I'm in now very, very much." (Albert Breer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

While Luck is throwing, he is not throwing an official NFL ball. And with teams beginning to report for voluntary workouts and the NFL draft right around the corner, the 2018 regular season will be here before you know it. There is not a lot of time for Luck. He needs to get back on the field sooner rather than later and it cant wait until training camp. He needs to be throwing and back into the swing of things by the start of OTAs. Luck has been dealing with the injury since 2015 and has not played a meaningful game since 2016. Not only do we need to see if his arm is back to normal, but we also have to see if his throwing motion has to be tweaked once he finally throws "the Duke." Moreover, he needs to regain his rapport with his pass-catchers and adjust to Frank Reich. The sooner Luck returns to the field the better it is for his fantasy outlook. Until I see further progress with his rehab, I'd remain cautious and only buy-low. If you're a Luck owner, you're better off holding him and taking the chance that he returns to form -- you've had him this long and won't likely see a return close to anywhere close to his upside.
