Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said the team will proceed through the offseason as though retired QB Andrew Luck has no intentions of returning to football. As a result, the Colts are expected to be in the quarterback market and could select one in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Although incumbent QB Jacoby Brissett will receive $7 million in guaranteed money in 2020 and has an opportunity to earn an additional $8 million, his inconsistency could lead the club to look elsewhere for a viable solution under center. If Brissett begins next year as the Colts' No. 1 signal-caller, he should be viewed as no better than a high-end QB2 in any fantasy format unless the team can upgrade their receiving corps alongside T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has informed owner Jim Irsay that he intends to retire, according to a source.
Huddle Up: In one of the most shocking moves in recent memory, Luck has apparently decided to step away from the NFL. The move not only hurts Luck owners, but also fantasy owners who have invested in other members of the Indianapolis offense. Jacoby Brissett will become the new starting quarterback for the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) will not participate in practice for at least another week, according to head coach Frank Reich, who noted Luck's issue is a matter of 'full-speed movement versus pain threshold.'
Huddle Up: It's looking more and more like Luck will be unable to play in the season opener, and it's anyone's guess if he will be ready at any point in the near future. At this point, it's probably safe for owners to draft him like a high-upside QB2 and hope he can be ready before the bye weeks hit.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) worked out on the field before the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, and appeared to be moving around well.
Huddle Up: Luck is still uncertain for Week 1, so fantasy players will need to continue to keep an eye on his status. He is a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues when he is healthy, but players may want to draft a strong No. 2 quarterback in case Luck misses a few games.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) continues to be sidelined because an ankle issue, but the Colts have guarded optimism about Luck's availability for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Luck has missed most of training camp because of the injury and probably is considered questionable for Week 1 at this point. He is a risky option in fantasy leagues at this point because of the injury but is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) is unlikely to play in the preseason due to an ankle issue, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Aug. 13. Ballard said he's not ready to say the regular-season opener is in jeopardy due to the injury and Luck will continue rehabbing.
Huddle Up: This is not good news for a consensus top-five fantasy quarterback. The breaks should be pumped on drafting Luck for now, who is currently being selected in the fifth round on average in standard leagues. This situation will need to be monitored through the rest of the preseason to see if he's at least able to return to practice.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is dealing with a 'small bone issue,' and it's nothing to do with his Achilles', according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: There is good news and some cause for concern there. Luck's status for the season opener still seems promising, but we've been here before. Luck is knocking on the door of the elite tier in fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in the next three practices, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Luck has been dealing with this calf injury for most of the offseason and training camp but there is several weeks before the start of the regular season. Fantasy players should continue to monitor the situation, but Luck should be a No. 1 quarterback if healthy.
