Mort: Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) could need 'additional surgery'

Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 10:15am

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

On Sunday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported there still are doctors who have concerns about Andrew Luck's shoulder and whether he could wind up needing additional surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck is not out of the woods yet for 2018. This report could have influenced Josh McDaniels' decision to renege on his agreement to join the Colts as head coach. Stay tuned.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Andrew Luck has finished as a top-five fantasy quarterback in each of the last three seasons. Luck's ten weeks as a top-10 quarterback last season were the third-most behind only Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan.

Fantasy Downside

Luck had offseason surgery on a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, and there is ambiguity on whether he will be available at the start of the season, after spending all of training camp on the PUP list. During the Colts' first preseason game broadcast, GM Chris Ballard said Luck's shoulder strength is already higher than at any point last season. However, after the game, owner Jim Irsay could not say unequivocally Luck would be ready for the season opener against the Rams.

2017 Bottom Line

It has become abundantly clear the Colts are taking a long-term approach to Luck's rehab and absolutely will not rush him back. However, there doesn't seem to be any concern that he'd miss more than a game or two at the start of the season. His ADP had been in the fourth/fifth round area before doubt was cast on his availability to start the season. If his ADP drops into the sixth or later, it might be worth pulling the trigger if you don't mind drafting a QB early since it is an easy position to replace if Luck does miss a game or two.
