Colts QB Andrew Luck 'will have plenty of opportunities to throw the ball'

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck finished just outside of the top 10 in pass attempts last season with 570. However, many Indy fans were left frustrated that the number wasn't greater. Instead, offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton decided to stick with an ineffective running game headed by Trent Richardson and his 3.0 yards-per-carry average. However, this season should be a little different, according to's Mike Wells.
"The Colts will run the ball because they want to have as much of a balanced offense as possible, but I don't think you'll hear them talk about a power-running game as much as last season," Wells wrote earlier this week. "They simply want to put points on the scoreboard whichever way necessary. With that said, and the weapons they have on the outside, Luck will have plenty of opportunities to throw the ball."

Fantasy Analysis:

We can only hope. With Reggie Wayne @Reggie_Wayne87, T.Y. Hilton @TYHilton13, Hakeem Nicks, Coby Fleener @coby, Dwayne Allen @Dallen83, and Richardson, there is no doubt that Luck has the skill players around him to do whatever asked. All the Colts and Hamilton need to do is ask and keep asking. Demand it.
Fantasy owners believe Luck's time is here; he's the fourth QB selected in drafts, according to FFToolbox's ADP chart.
