The big question on everyone’s mind around the Indianapolis Colts is what the status of star quarterback Andrew Luck will be. A year ago, Luck and the Colts feigned optimism about his recovery from a shoulder injury.
That parlayed into a disastrous season where Luck didn’t play a single snap.
Luck promises this rehab process has and will be different. He also vows to be ready for week one.
Whether you can trust Luck or not may dictate how you look at him as you head into fantasy football drafts this summer. However, there’s reason to be optimistic and if Luck is healthy, there’s even more reason to take a chance on him.
Even when he was struggling with turnovers and dealing with shaky pass protection, Luck still found a way to rank 4th amongst fantasy passers in 2016 and 2nd in 2014. If healthy, he has the talent to vie for a top-1o spot in 2018.
The beauty is you’re not taking on much risk to see if he can be that same guy again. A potential stud QB1, Luck can be had in round 8 or later, depending on your league size and type.
I’m certainly not saying Luck is a lock to suit up in week one or doesn’t carry risk. However, the investment is mild for a top shelf talent that can produce at an elite level when he’s on top of his game.
