“Being in one place for a long time, the past two years have been pretty frustrating,” Colts WR Andre Johnson said, via ESPN.com. “Just being here is like a breath of fresh air for me.”
Part of that breath of fresh air has to include playing with Andrew Luck after cycling through several quarterbacks while with the Texans. Matt Schaub was the most accomplished player of that group and Johnson showed them all some kindness by putting a unnecessary qualifier on his assessment of Luck’s skills.
“He throws a great ball,” Johnson said. “Probably the best quarterback I’ve ever played with. I’m excited about the opportunity.”
Johnson will likely start opposite T.Y. Hilton. It’s a big upgrade from a quality-of-quarterback standpoint, as he has never played with one as good as Andrew Luck. His targets are likely to take a hit, however. He averaged 9.7 T/G in 2014, while Hilton and Reggie Wayne led the Colts with 8.7 and 7.7 T/G, respectively. So this looks like a case of the targets dropping but the quality of those targets increasing. After finishing in the top 10 (in PPR) in five of his previous six seasons, Johnson finished #28 in 2014. He’s turning 34 this offseason, so it may be foolhardy to expect a huge bounceback season, but low-end WR2 numbers in PPR formats seem reasonable.

Andrew Luck - Week 20 vs. New England
So far in the playoffs Andrew Luck hasn't had a monster game. In the first matchup he threw for 376 yards, which was nice, but only finished with one touchdown. In a tougher matchup last week he threw for 265 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
This week Luck gets another tough assignment against the Patriots. Joe Flacco had success last week throwing four touchdowns, but make no mistake the Patriots' defense has great players in the secondary. When Luck faced the Pats earlier this season he threw for 303 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
All four quarterbacks available this week are talented and can put up points. Luck has been money all season, so he's not a bad option.
