|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.
|Andrew Luck rests shoulder, expects to play -- Wed Sep 21 4:53 pm --|
Should return to practice Thursday
|INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Three days after taking 16 hits, Andrew Luck missed Wednesday's practice with a sore throwing shoulder.
Luck said it was just sore, downplaying the obvious concern his absence will raise among fans. He said he hopes to return to practice Thursday and plans to play Sunday as the Colts try to avoid their first 0-3 start in five years, when San Diego comes to town.
FF Today's Take: Andrew Luck isn't the first quarterback that needed an extra day of rest after playing the Denver defense. This doesn't appear to be anything other than soreness right now but it is worth monitoring as the season progresses. Scott Tolzien would get the start if Luck can't play against the Chargers.
