The Colts have picked up their fifth-year option on Luck's contract with the team, ESPN.com reports.

Such an outcome was essentially a forgone conclusion, but the move ensures that Luck -- who led the NFL in TD passes (40) in 2014 and was third in passing yards (4,761), will be under contract with the Colts through the 2016 season. Down the road, of course, the 25-year-old signal-caller is candidate to earn a lucrative extension from the organization, but at this stage, the team doesn't plan to address that situation until after the 2015 campaign.

Luck completed 12-of-33 passes for 126 yards with two picks in Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

It was a rough ending to Luck's season, but it doesn't changed the fact that the rising star finished the regular season with a career-high 4,761 passing yards and a league-leading 40 touchdown passes against 16 picks. Luck will approach the 2015 season -- which will be his fourth campaign in the NFL -- as one of the fantasy football's elite quarterbacks.

Luck completed 27-of-43 passes for 265 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions, in Sunday's 24-13 win over the Broncos. He added 21 yards on two carries.

Luck came out firing with a slew of short passes, as the Colts didn't try a running play until their third drive. The offense was a bit more balanced from that point on, but it should be noted that 10 of Daniel Herron's 23 carries came in the final quarter while Indy was sitting on a lead. Luck wasn't spectacular, but he was accurate on short and intermediate passes, and he didn't make any bad mistakes. Both interceptions were from deep throws on third-and-long, and while they didn't really hurt the Colts, Luck probably should have thrown the ball further if he was going to throw to blanketed receivers. In any case, he gets another tough matchup for the AFC Championship Game in New England, though the Patriots did just give up 31 points to the Ravens.

Luck completed 31-of-44 passes for 376 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-10 wild card win over the Benagls.

Luck, who also ran twice for 18 yards in Sunday's win, is now on track to square off against former Colt QB Peyton Manning and the Broncos on the road next weekend.

Luck completed 10-of-16 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns before giving way to Matt Hasselbeck during Sunday's win over the Titans.

The Colts had already clinched a playoff spot, and after throwing touchdowns to Coby Fleener and Jack Doyle in the first half, Luck let the veteran Hasselbeck close things out. Luck finished the regular season with a career-high 4,761 passing yards and a league-leading 40 touchdown passes. The knock against him this season has been turnovers, as he threw 16 interceptions and lost six of 12 fumbles. However, it was good enough to help the Colts win 11 games for the third consecutive season, and he'll be a solid fantasy play during the postseason, regardless of who they play.

Luck completed 15 of 22 passes for 109 yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys. He was intercepted twice and did not throw a touchdown.

Just a devastating stat line for anyone who started Luck in a Week 16 championship game. Luck was pulled from the game in the third quarter with the Cowboys thoroughly dismantling the Colts. He was so dominant for most of the season, only to completely fall apart when fantasy owners needed him most (Weeks 15 and 16). If you somehow survived this stinker and are still alive in Week 17, take solace in the fact that Luck has a good chance to bounce back against a Titans team that he shredded for 393 yards and four touchdowns in Week 4.

Luck completed 18-of-34 passes for 187 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception, while also rushing eight times for 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans.

Luck's 18 completions were a season-low, and his 187 passing yards were his lowest total since he threw for 172 against the Eagles back in Week 2. However, he still managed to throw two touchdowns for the second game in a row, and he now has nine touchdowns in the last three games. However, he continues to be sloppy with the ball, turning it over six times over that span. The Colts clinched the AFC South with the victory, and while they still have a chance at a top-2 seed, they need the Broncos or Patriots to lose, which should at least keep Luck on the field in Week 16 against the Cowboys, who are allowing the ninth-most passing yards per game this season.

Luck completed 24-of-53 passes for 294 yards, with two touchdowns, a pair of interceptions and lost fumble, in Sunday's 25-24 comeback win at Cleveland. He also rushed the ball five times for 37 yards and a touchdown.

Luck didn't look sharp early on, and trailed for most of the second half, but saved his best for last, throwing a short touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with only 32 seconds remaining. He has a good shot to post better numbers next week at home against Houston, which has not defended opposing QBs very well this season.

Luck completed 19-of-27 passes for 370 yards, with five touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Redskins. He also added four carries for 20 rushing yards, though he lost a fumble.

A week after passing for only 253 yards and one touchdown against the Jaguars, Luck set a season-high in touchdowns, while throwing for exactly 370 yards for the fourth time this season. He has now broken the 300-yard mark in all but two games this year, though he figures to have a tougher time hitting it in Week 9 against a Browns defense allowing the ninth-fewest passing yards per game.

Luck completed 21 of 32 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown, while also rushing eight times for 49 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Luck struggled with constant pressure and ended up taking five sacks in the game. He connected with seven different receivers, but only T.Y. Hilton finished with more than 40 yards, and a majority of his production came on a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was only the second time all season that Luck failed to throw multiple touchdowns, and he failed to extend his eight-game streak with at least 300 passing yards. He'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Redskins, who came into Sunday ranked 11th in fewest-passing yards per game this season, though only three teams had allowed more passing touchdowns.
