Indianapolis Colts

By Larry Gold, Friday, September 12, 2014

UNLIMITED CEILING, MVP CANDIDATE. Andrew Luck enters his third year with more upside than any other QB. Luck finished 2013 outside the Top 10 in most relevant quarterback categories, but one must look beyond the numbers to grasp what awaits Luck. The former Stanford grad excelled in spite of injuries across the offense, leading his Colts to a division title with a porous offensive line and non-existent running attack (outside of two games where Donald Brown performed). Luck did his best Tom Brady impersonation and worked with a collection of young, unpolished receivers (along with TY Hilton) to maximize his success. The Colts upgraded their offensive line through the draft and signed free agent Hakeem Nicks. With Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen returning from injury and Trent Richardson likely more comfortable in the offense, the sky is the limit. Luck is currently the fourth QB off the board in most redraft leagues (with a 37.43 ADP), so you are already betting on a large statistical surge for Luck if you draft him. However, if you are comfortable sacrificing an elite WR or RB early in your draft to lock up a sure thing at QB, look no further than Luck.

World Championship Drafts: In dynasty, Luck is normally going QB2 overall (third round) behind only the great Aaron Rodgers. The expectations are high for this Colts QB.
