Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will finally make his preseason debut against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday.

That’s the plan for now at least. That’s because we’ve seen anything can happen when it comes to Luck and the Colts.

There was the cancelled Hall of Fame game on Aug. 7. That was out of the Colts' and Green Bay Packers' control because of the poor field conditions.

Most people thought Luck would play a series or two against Buffalo last weekend.

Owner Jim Irsay had other ideas. He tweeted out about two before kickoff that Luck would sit the game out and took a subtle shot at Bills coach Rex Ryan’s aggressive approach in the preseason.

The good news is that the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium won’t be an issue for tonight’s Colts preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills.

But there’s bad news for those wanting to see quarterback Andrew Luck in his first action since early November: Luck won’t play in tonight’s game, according to team owner Jim Irsay.

Irsay just sent out a tweet that saying as much: “Colts Fans; it's a long Pre-Season and 2 Home Games are coming in the next 2 Weeks. Look for #12 to make 1st Start then instead of tonight.”

Fantasy Impact:

Luck, when speaking to reporters on Thursday, seemed as if he expected to play, the story said. Coach Chuck Pagano singled out specific players who had been ruled out but did not mention Luck.

Luck: Colts WR T.Y. Hilton 'probably the best player on the field' at camp

Andrew Luck says the consistency of Colts WR T.Y. Hilton was impressive all camp. "Probably the best player on the field."

Fantasy Impact:

In 22 games over the past two seasons with a healthy Andrew Luck, Hilton has averaged 5.1 catches for 86 yards and 0.45 TD. Those are fringe WR1 numbers in PPR formats and solid WR1 numbers in standard leagues. With Luck back under center, Hilton should have a bounce back season after finishing #22 in both formats last year.

Coby Fleener, Drew Brees working on chemistry

It's safe to say New Orleans Saints tight end Coby Fleener is still trying to learn the nuances of playing with Drew Brees after playing with the same quarterback for his entire college and NFL career in Andrew Luck.

Brees is still learning Fleener's game, of course. Yet Fleener seems well aware of who's the boss and it's more about learning Brees than vice versa.

"There's absolutely some catching up to do on my part," Fleener said after Day 4 of training camp practices Sunday at The Greenbrier. "Drew can write the playbook if he wanted to. He's just that well versed in what we're doing.

Fantasy Impact:

The last two days displayed how quickly the two are coming along the story said. It added Brees connected with Fleener on a few intermediate routes in team drills, and also a one-armed grab with a ball thrown behind him in team drills. On Sunday, Brees hit Fleener perfectly on a deep seam route for a long touchdown connection.

Andrew Luck feels 'as good as ever'

There's reason to believe Andrew Luck was never fully healthy at any point in a disappointing 2015 season.

He missed two early-season games with an injury to his throwing shoulder, played through torn cartilage in two of his ribs and went down with a lacerated kidney at midseason.

Going all the way back to the season opener we saw a quarterback with waning arm strength and shaky pocket presence, suggesting Luck was hiding an injury he never revealed.

"Personally, I know I wasn't playing well, whether I was injured or not," Luck recently acknowledged to the Indianapolis Star. "I have some thoughts, but I don't want to share them. I wasn't doing a good job and it's no one else's fault but mine."

Fantasy Impact:

Luck said he feels as good as ever coming into a training camp. He should bounce back nicely this season, and we're thinking he ends up a top-five QB.

When it comes to NFL quarterback contracts, a rising tide doesn’t necessarily lift all boats. Just ask Ryan Fitzpatrick, who gained no leverage from contracts given to players like Sam Bradford (two years, $35 million) and Brock Osweiler (four years, $72 million). Ultimately, a quarterback’s value is driven not by what others have gotten, but by what anyone will pay this specific player.

Fitzpatrick, despite the Bradford, Osweiler, and now Andrew Luck deals, can’t get eight figures per year from the Jets, or anything close to that from anyone else. Next year, that same problem could apply to Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Taylor is due to earn $3 million this year, which when it comes to quarterbacks isn’t peanuts but pressed peanut sweepings. For Taylor, his value next year likely will be driven by the market for mid-level quarterbacks, if anyone out there chooses to pay him a mid-level contract, which currently is in the range of $15 million per year. Luck’s new contract doesn’t change that.

Colts sign QB Andrew Luck through 2021

ESPN - [Full Article]

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay stuck to his word and secured franchise quarterback Andrew Luck's long-term future with the organization before the start of the 2016 season.

The Colts announced Wednesday that Luck has signed an extension through the 2021 season that will make him the highest-paid player in the NFL, based on guaranteed salary.

Fantasy Impact:

Go get that money, Andrew.

Colts QB Andrew Luck will be ready to play in April

Andrew Luck’s return to being full-go?

It’s something Colts fans never saw in the final two months of the 2015 season.

Luck’s return though has a target date, one that marks the beginning of the team's 2016 offseason program.

“April 18th, he should be ready to roll,” Chuck Pagano said of Luck during this week’s NFL Combine.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck was the #22 QB through the first three weeks before hitting the injury report in Week 4 with a shoulder injury. By the time his season ended in Week 9, he was the #16 QB in total fantasy points and owned the #13 per game average. This was disappointing production given his top-overall finish in 2014 and his previous production (#8 in 2012, #6 in 2013). He should bounce back into the top 5 assuming he stays healthy.

Pagano: Andrew Luck will not play in Week 16

Monday, December 21, 2015, 4:37pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

If the Colts want to try to stay in the AFC South race, they’re going to have to do it without Andrew Luck for at least another week.

Via Mike Chappel of IndySportsCentral.com, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Luck will not play this week at Miami.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s not a surprise, as Luck recovers from a lacerated kidney. Pagano said he’d hold out the chance Luck could play in the regular season finale if he’s able to see him practice, the story said. With 40-year-old backup Matt Hasselbeck “beat up from the feet up” in Pagano’s words, it might come down to Charlie Whitehurst at some point, the story added.
