QB - IND - Questionable
Week 17 Outlook
Andrew Luck has 'no timeline' for return
Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard gave no indication on a timeline for quarterback Andrew Luck's return from offseason shoulder surgery. “He is rehabbing, he is doing everything the doctors tell him," Ballard said via the Indy Star. "We are going to go strictly on the doctor’s orders. He has been there every day that I have been in the building. Andrew has been sitting there working and rehabbing and doing everything that needs to be done. We are going to do the best thing for Andrew. We are going to follow the doctor’s orders and when he is ready to go he is ready to go.”
Although Ballard replied, "no timeline", when asked about Luck's availability for spring workouts, Colts beat writer Stephen Holder reports his [Luck's] arm remains in a sling and that he believes the signal caller is "widely expected to miss on-field work this offseason." Barring a setback, however, Luck is fully expected to return for training camp in July, per reports.
Andrew Luck undergoes successful surgery
Indianapolis Colts quarterback (shoulder) Andrew Luck underwent successful surgery to repair a lingering shoulder injury.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Luck's recovery timeline is three months to begin throwing and six months "for a full return" to football activities -- which is roughly a "mid-July" return. The oft-injured signal caller is on track to be sidelined for the majority of the team's offseason program, and could even miss a part of training camp, depending on how his rehab flows. However, Colts owner Jim Irsay gave his fan base a glimmer of hope tweeting early Thursday morning that his franchise quarterback "will be ready for [the 2017] season," -- likely and hopefully for Week 1.
Andrew Luck finishes the season with a game-winning drive
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck finished the year strong completing 24-of-40 passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Colts’ 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After a disappointing injury-filled year in 2015, Luck responded with a strong fantasy season in 2016. While Luck didn’t quite have the season that he had in 2014 where he was the number two QB in fantasy football, Luck was one of the most consistent QBs in 2016. Luck had at least one touchdown in every game he played this season and at least 250 yards in all but three games. While QBs that were drafted later such as Matt Ryan and Drew Brees had better seasons, no one regrets drafting Luck. He should be one of the top three or four QBs off of the board in 2017.
Andrew Luck pads his stats in late comeback effort in Week 16
Andrew Luck completed 19 of 29 passes for 288 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions on Saturday against the Raiders. He also rushed four times for 12 yards, including a touchdown.
Luck's fantasy line was better than his real-life performance, as he added the majority of his stats in the second half when the Colts were furiously trying to come back. Luck has been an excellent fantasy quarterback in 2016, and should be a top option in Week 17 against Jacksonville.
Andrew Luck is dominant against the Vikings’ spectacular defense
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 21-for-28 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts’ 34-6 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Luck continues to be one of the most reliable and consistent players in Fantasy Football in 2016. With two games remaining against the Oakland Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Colts’ playoff hopes still alive (although on life support), continue to start Luck.
