|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, that’s 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 doesn’t 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 that’s not likely to happen. He is a low end QB2 at best.

Expected to be ready for training camp

FF Today's Take: Further reports suggest that Luck will miss most of the off-season but should return to full throwing by mid-July. For now, fantasy can expect to be ready to go for Week 1. Luck was a top 5 fantasy quarterback in 2016.
| Colts' Luck on track to play -- Wed Nov 30 6:15 pm --|
|It appears Andrew Luck is on track to return to action Monday night against the Jets.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters the quarterback remains in the concussion protocol, but Luck told reporters after practice Wednesday that he participated in the session with no restrictions.
FF Today's Take: This is great news for an Indianapolis offense that struggled to get much going with Scott Tolzien under center last week. Barring a setback, Andrew Luck will be a big boost for the fantasy values of T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

FF Today's Take: Hilton landed heavily on his back in Week 12 but should be able to go in Week 13. Assuming Andrew Luck (concussion) is back under center, Hilton will have a tasty matchup against the Jets.

Placed in concussion protocol
|Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is in the NFL's concussion protocol, coach Chuck Pagano announced Monday. Colts Insider Zak Keefer said it usually takes players five to six days to get through protocol, which would obviously put Luck in danger of missing the Colts' Thanksgiving game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But "no two concussions are the same," Keefer added. "There's no timetable or 'normal' recovery." (Indianapolis Star)|
FF Today's Take: This is a big one for fantasy owners, as likely replacement Scott Tolzien is a huge step down from Luck and lowers the ceiling of players like T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Owners should expect to be without Luck this week, which would make the Steelers' defense a bit of an interesting streaming option this week.
