We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Adam Schefter rocked the fantasy community Saturday night with a tweet, "Filed to ESPN: Andrew Luck has informed the Colts he is retiring from the NFL, per source. There will be a press conference Sunday to make it official, but Luck is mentally worn down, and now checking out." The drop-off from Luck to Jacoby Brissett should not be overly impactful for the Colts receivers but he is still inferior to the neckbearded passer. He is much better than we remember from the 2017 season. Brissett was just acquired and was learning the system. Now, he has enjoyed two offseasons with coach Frank Reich. Andrew Luck had not participated in practice for a long while so Brissett had been assuming the starters' reps in practice. Indianapolis had a chance to trade Brissett earlier this year as he is entering the final year of his contract, but chose to keep him given Luck’s injury history. This decision looks great now but gives an indication that the organization knew this was a possibility. The Colts front office gets a year to evaluate the young passer before deciding to either extend his contract or permit him to walk. We fully expect the team to add a veteran quarterback to the mix, but keep an eye on the enigmatic Chad Kelly, who has played well this preseason. Kelly has loads of talent and an equal amount of troubles off the field.
Denver rookie Drew Lock injured his right (throwing) thumb in the Broncos second preseason game. He is not expected to be ready for the opener and there is talk that Lock could open the season on injured reserve. Joe Flacco is entrenched as the starter so the only fantasy impact is that the injury will result in less practice time for the youngster as he tries to get used to the speed of the NFL game. Kevin Hogan appears to be Flacco’s backup until Lock returns.
