Week 9: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck is on an amazing tear through the NFL, with five games of 370 yards or more passing so far this season (including last week's 26/45 for 400 yards, with three TDs and two interceptions thrown at Pittsburgh) and seven-out-of-eight games with in excess of 300 yards passing. T.Y. Hilton is the sixth-ranked wide receiver in the land at the half-way point, with 53/866/2 receiving; Dwayne Allen is eighth among fantasy tight ends with 22/326/6; and Ahmad Bradshaw is fifth among fantasy running backs in the PPR paradigm with 76/371/2 rushing and 31/264/6 receiving. That's a studly collection of Colts, friends. The Giants' pass D is ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 262.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores offset by 11 interceptions generated to date (second-most in the NFL). However, Luck has thrown 22 pass TDs vs. nine interceptions this year - he's not especially prone to turnovers. The Giants have 13 sacks this season (21st in the NFL). Tony Romo hit this group for 17/23 yielding 267 net yards, three TDs and one interception (two sacks for -12 yards) two weeks ago; Nick Foles threw 21/34 for 245 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, with one sack taken for -3 yards back in Week 6. This is a great matchup for Luck and company on Monday Night Football during Week 9.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs HOU (25 / 44 / 370 / 3 / 1 pass, 7 / 18 / 0 rush)

After starting the game off in a zone, Luck cooled off in the second half as J.J. Watt started wreaking havoc on the Colts' offensive line. But, make no mistake, Luck still finished with a very good game overall, hitting T.Y. Hilton for three long balls over the top, including a 33-yard touchdown pass in the second half. Luck hit key passes all day, and finished with another game of over 350 yards and multiple touchdown passes. He and his center, undrafted rookie Jonotthan Harrison, did have another snap-related issue, but that should smooth out going forward. His lone interception wasn't his fault either, as the pass got batted at the line of scrimmage. Houston's defense is one of the better ones the Colts will face all season, and Luck still picked them apart unimpeded for most of the contest.

2014 Week 7 vs CIN (27 / 42 / 344 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 5 / 0 rush)

In a game that typifies the kind of season Luck is having, the Colts quarterback had a fairly unimpressive day but still managed his sixth 300-yard passing day and his sixth multi-touchdown day. A fumble on a handoff to Trent Richardson was the only blemish for Luck, who has gotten a bit unlucky with snap fumbles and handoff fumbles that largely were somebody else's fault over the last three weeks, but he is being efficient and getting huge volume numbers that make up for a few turnovers. Luck's spreading the ball around, and it's working.

2014 Week 8 vs PIT (26 / 45 / 400 / 3 / 2 pass, 3 / 26 / 0 rush)

After the Colts shut the Bengals out last week and the Colts' running game got going, there may have been some fear that Andrew Luck's high-volume usage would decrease as the Colts improved as a well-rounded team. Sunday was proof that that won't be happening any time soon. With the Colts defense allowing Ben Roethlisberger to have one of the greatest passing performances ever, the Colts were forced to rely on Luck more than ever, and he responded brilliantly, for the most part. Outside of an early pick on a jumped route, Luck was sublime, keeping the Colts in the game and leading to 34 points on the road. But the early pick-six and later safety on an unfortunate intentional grounding penalty put a damper on Luck's day, and dug them into a deeper hole. But for fantasy purposes, it seems that the Colts will need every bit of Luck's arm as we expected.
