|Every so often a team is lucky enough to land itself a franchise quarterback. And if you are the Indianapolis Colts, you hit the jackpot and end up having two consecutive eras with franchise QBs. At least, thatís the plan. The Andrew Luck era starts in 2012 and the Stanford product possesses the athleticism, intelligence and intangibles to start for the Colts from Day 1 of training camp. But that doesnít amount to a hill of beans for your fantasy squad given the lack of talent the Colts possess on offense. While Luck makes for an outstanding dynasty league prospect, his prospects for 2012 leave something to be desired. Not only is Indianapolis attempting to rebuild its aging, leaky offensive line, the team also lacks a proven starting running back, has a pair of rookies atop its tight end depth chart and has a group of wide receivers led by 12-year veteran Reggie Wayne but with little else behind him. For Luck to emerge as a starting fantasy quarterback, he will need his supporting cast to improve greatly upon what is expected in 2012 and thatís not likely to happen. He is a low end QB2 at best.

Gets a bump in title to Associate Head Coach
|Rob Chudzinski is officially off the market for coordinator positions around the NFL.
The Colts named Chudzinski as their associate head coach Tuesday, announcing a deal that will keep the coveted former Browns coach in Indianapolis. Chudzinski had been mentioned as a candidate for offensive coordinator positions with the Rams and 49ers, but Colts general manager Ryan Grigson had denied teams permission to interview him. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: One thing fantasy owners like is stability and it appears the Colts offensive philosophy will remain intact now that Chud is staying put. Pep Hamilton will again serve as offensive coordinator and call plays. Under the two, quarterback Andrew Luck set career highs in yards and touchdowns this past season.

"Need to build some steam"
|Colts are going to, generally speaking, play to win against Tennessee despite having nothing to gain. They need to build some steam. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: After laying an egg against the Cowboys in Week 16, the Colts would probably be well-served by trying to find their groove offensively against the overmatched Titans. T.Y. Hilton is expected to return and Andrew Luck is a good bet to excel, so both players should be top-five plays in daily fantasy or Week 17 championships, even if they only play three quarters.
