News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 12): Luck's shoulder/arm condition is still mostly unknown other than we know he hasn't played for the last two weeks. And the Colts won both of those games with 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback. This week brings a potentially explosive fantasy matchup against the Pats and ten days rest, but we might not know if Luck is starting until right before the game.
Week 6: vs New England Patriots
Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

2015 Week 3 vs TEN (18 / 30 / 260 / 2 / 2 pass, 6 / 21 / 0 rush)
Once again, Andrew Luck looked like he forgot how to play football. For the first time this season, however, he came back. He came back to what we expected to see this season in the fourth quarter against the Titans, going 11 for 13 for 144 yards and two touchdowns to bring the Colts back to victory. It's tempting to say the Colts have figured some things out offensively, based on the end of the game, but the little mistakes continue to sabotage the offense for the first three quarters. Against the Jaguars, Luck will again have a much easier time than he did in the first two weeks, but the consistency issues will be a question until Luck can go a game without having a bad turnover.
2015 Week 2 vs NYJ (21 / 37 / 250 / 1 / 3 pass, 4 / 24 / 0 rush)
Andrew Luck is currently going through the worst two-game stretch of his career. Sure, he's gone up against a couple talented defenses and is piloting an offense with questionable coaching, but Luck simply isn't the quarterback we saw last season. Against the Jets, Luck looked like he was a rookie again, struggling to deal with pressure up the middle and consistently missing throws. Above all else, he was careless, throwing the ball up for grabs multiple times when blitzers got into the backfield quickly. Luck is too talented to see this trend continue, but he and the offense have a lot of work to do to build up enough chemistry to be the fantasy goldmine we expected.
2015 Week 1 vs BUF (26 / 49 / 243 / 2 / 2 pass, 4 / 20 / 0 rush)
It was a rough day for Andrew Luck, who was off-target from the very beginning as he attempted to deal with the attacking Buffalo defense. Luck missed several potential big plays early on, including two deep shots to T.Y. Hilton that came up short and an off-target screen pass to Frank Gore in the open field. Luck looked rushed throughout the day, as the offense shifted to a quick-throw focus that didn't play to his or the Colts' personnel strengths. Still, Luck reminded us that he's as matchup-proof as anybody in fantasy football, managing nearly 20 points on one of the worst games of his career.
Latest NewsColts | Andrew Luck's status unknown (Mon Oct 12, 04:27 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is 'day-to-day,' and head coach Chuck Pagano will not say whether Luck will return in Week 6 to face the New England Patriots after practicing in full Monday, Oct. 12. Luck is 0-4 in his career against the Patriots and has lost by an average of 29 points. Our View: With the release of backup QB Josh Johnson, we think Luck should be able to go on Sunday. QB Matt Hasselbeck would start his third straight game if Luck can't go.
link to story Colts | Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck practice (Mon Oct 12, 12:47 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QBs Andrew Luck (shoulder) and Matt Hasselbeck (illness) both practiced in full Monday, Oct. 12, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Luck missed the last two weeks and has been limited in practice, but this is a positive sign that he'll be ready to return in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. Our View: Pagano said that Luck 'looked good' in practice and was throwing the ball well. We think Luck returns this week to play against the Patriots in Week 6. Stay tuned to the practice reports as the week goes on.
link to story Colts | Andrew Luck close to returning (Fri Oct 9, 08:24 AM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is close to returning, and head coach Chuck Pagano said he's supremely confident Luck will return for Week 6. Our View: Pagano also laughed after this pronouncement. We know very little about Luck's shoulder ailment other than it has cost him two games. The Colts won both of those games, so they might not be in a rush to get him back against Jacksonville next week. We'll be watching the practice reports closely.
link to story Colts | Week 5 Inactives for Colts (Thu Oct 8, 07:18 PM) - The Indianapolis Colts have declared QB Andrew Luck, LB Bjoern Werner, OT Denzelle Good, LB Jerrell Freeman, OG Lance Louis, DL T.Y. McGill, RB Tyler Varga inactive for Week 5. Colts | Andrew Luck out Thursday (Thu Oct 8, 10:26 AM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't play Thursday, Oct. 8, with QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) drawing the start against the Houston Texans, according to a source. Our View: That's that. As previously stated, we'd avoid Hasselbeck as anything other than a QB3 and expect the team to lean on Frank Gore, who should be a rock-solid RB2.
