Andrew Luck QB IND 10 Hrs
Andrew Luck completed 29-of-46 passes for 326 yards and four touchdowns in Week 14 against the Bengals.
Luck also led the Colts in rushing with 32 yards on two attempts. The Colts were playing from behind all day long, leading to a ton of work for the passing game. The coaching staff finally turned away from Darrius Heyward-Bey, giving more reps to youngsters Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill. Luck hooked up with each for a pair of touchdowns. The Indianapolis offensive line didn't surrender one sack for the first time all season. Luck will be a locked-in QB1 next week against a Texans team that is just going through the motions.

Andrew Luck completed 17-of-32 throws for 200 yards and an interception in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Titans.
He added five scrambles for 42 yards, including a 24-yard keeper around right tackle on the Colts' most momentous drive of the game, in the fourth quarter. Luck absorbed five sacks, including four in the second quarter alone. The Colts' pass protection is atrocious, and lately Luck has been exacerbating the problems by holding onto the ball too long, as if he's become shell shocked. He'll only be a borderline QB1 in Week 14 at Cincinnati.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports Colts OC Pep Hamilton is "under pressure" within the organization to "step up his game" after so many slow offensive starts over the past several weeks.
Two sources tell Silver that Hamilton "might be having a tough time adjusting" to the NFL as a rookie coordinator coming from Stanford. The transition was expected to be smooth based on Hamilton's familiarity with Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener, but has been the opposite. The Colts have prioritized scheme over personnel under Hamilton, taking a big step back from the all-too-brief Bruce Arians era. There is reportedly a belief at Colts headquarters that Hamilton has "struggled to free up receivers" like T.Y. Hilton, and his system has lacked imagination and aggressiveness. If the Colts keep playing as they've been playing, Pep the Playcaller could be one-and-done in Indy.

Andrew Luck completed 20-of-39 passes for 163 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' 40-11, Week 12 blowout loss in Arizona.
Luck's offensive line cannot hold blocks long enough for anything to develop down field, even though they surrendered just one sack. The second-year stud quarterback posted a pitiful 4.2 YPA on Sunday. He also led the regulars in rushing with 31 yards on two carries. Trent Richardson and Donald Brown combined for 16 yards on nine totes. Luck's No. 1 receiver, T.Y. Hilton, was blanketed by Patrick Peterson all afternoon and hurt his shoulder in the process, though he missed just a couple plays. On his touchdown pass, Luck hooked up with Coby Fleener from 17 yards away in garbage time. His interception was a brutal pick-six to Karlos Dansby in the second quarter. Luck threw off his back foot as he was falling away on the play. The 7-4 Colts host the Titans next week. Luck tossed for 232 yards against Tennessee in Week 11.

Andrew Luck completed 23-of-36 passes for 232 yards in Indianapolis' 30-27 Week 11 win over the Titans, adding nine rushes for 31 yards and a touchdown.
Luck's 11-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter - which included the second-year quarterback faking LE Derrick Morgan out of his shoes - saved what would have otherwise been a highly forgettable fantasy effort. Luck spent the entire first half throwing off his back foot, as the Colts' sieve-like offensive line had two of its worst quarters of the season. The whole offense settled down after the break, however, with Luck striking up a nice connection with Coby Fleener. Life hasn't been easy for Luck without Reggie Wayne, but he appears to be slowly adjusting. Luck will be a borderline QB1 in Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Andrew Luck completed 29-of-47 passes for 353 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Indianapolis' Week 10 loss to the Rams.
He was pulled mid-way through the fourth quarter with Indy trailing 38-8. As has been the case for the most of the season, Luck was the victim of horrible pass blocking and questionable play calling, but he deserves a large share of the blame for his worst start of the year. Luck spent the first half overthrowing everybody in sight, stared down his receiver on his first pick and overthrew Coby Fleener on his second. The third came on a tipped pass in the end zone. Luck was throwing a much crisper ball in the second half, but it was far too little, too late in a game Indy trailed 28-0 at the break. Luck is too good not to get back on track in Thursday's game against the Titans.

Andrew Luck completed 18-of-40 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 9 win over the Texans.
Luck struggled to get anything going early, but was able to connect with T.Y. Hilton for all three of his touchdowns in the second half. Playing without Reggie Wayne, he completed just 45 percent of his passes and averaged 6.8 yards per attempt. It was another impressive fourth quarter comeback from Luck, who's on pace for 3,690 yards, 36 touchdowns, and six interceptions through eight games. He'll remain a QB1 for next week's matchup against the Rams.

Andrew Luck completed 21-of-38 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 7 win over the Broncos.
He added four carries for 29 yards and a scored on a 10-yard scramble in the third quarter. Luck threw all three of his touchdowns in the first half and relied mostly on the short-to-intermediate passing game. He didn't have any turnovers and managed to outplay Peyton Manning, but couldn't get anything going downfield with T.Y. Hilton, averaging just 6.0 yards-per-attempt. Through seven games, Luck has 1,574 passing yards (224.9 YPG) and 13 total touchdowns. He'll be a recommended QB1 start when the Colts come out of their bye in Week 9 against the Texans.

Andrew Luck completed 18-of-30 passes for 202 yards and one interception in the Colts' 19-9, Week 6 loss to the Chargers on Monday night.
Luck was sacked just once but faced a lot of heat, especially from Chargers RE Corey Liuget. Liuget was giving the left side of the Indianapolis line fits all night long. Luck was also plagued by drops. There were at least five of them. Darrius Heyward-Bey had one of the bigger ones on what might have been a 60-yard touchdown. The ball was a bit overthrown, but it clanked right off DHB's hands with nothing but green grass ahead. Coby Fleener had the other big drop just before halftime. Luck's interception came on the final drive with the Colts down ten points. OC Pep Hamilton dialed up maybe two deep passes all night long. Luck and the 4-2 Colts welcome Peyton Manning back to town next Sunday.

Andrew Luck completed 22-of-36 passes for 260 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception as the Colts dominated the Jaguars in Week 4.
He rushed twice for 26 yards, and was removed late in favor of Matt Hasselbeck with the Colts kicking Jacksonville's tail. Luck bounced back from an inaccurate, sloppy first half to march Indy's offense down the field consistently in the final two quarters, finding Coby Fleener for a 31-yard score and Reggie Wayne for a five-yarder. Through four weeks, Luck is on pace for a 20:8 TD-to-INT ratio as a passer, though he's buoying his stats with rushing yards and scores. The 3-1 Colts will host the Seahawks in Week 5. Luck will be a low-end to mid-range QB1.
