Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck completed 19 of his 36 pass attempts for 203 yards and a touchdown in a 13-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. He also added two carries for 17 yards on the ground. In a juicy matchup against a bottom-two passing defense from the regular season, the entire Colts offense was a virtual no show and was outscored in the game by their special teams unit. Luck's usual velocity and comfort in the pocket was disrupted by both the snowy weather and the Chiefs pass rush, which managed to sack him three times. While his fantasy owners might not be too happy about his lackluster performance in the NFL playoffs, Luck should remain the front runner for the Comeback Player of the Year Award and be recognized as one of the stronger options at the quarterback position in fantasy football.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck completed 19 of his 32 pass attempts for 222 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in a 21-7 win over the Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card Round on Saturday. He also added eight rush attempts for 29 yards. Both of Luck's touchdowns came in the first half of the contest, with a six yard strike to tight end Eric Ebron and an 18 yard pass to wide receiver Dontrelle Inman. The game script unfolded in a manner that allowed the Colts to turn away from throwing the football and likely disappointed Luck's fantasy owners. After accumulating a 21-0 lead heading into the third quarter, running back Marlon Mack was featured and ended up gashing the Texans defense with 24 attempts for 148 yards and a touchdown. While the battle of the AFC South should have been more of a shootout, Luck draws an extremely favorable matchup against the No.1 seeded Kansas City Chiefs who gave up the second most passing yards per game in the regular season. With the Colts offensive pieces firing on all cylinders and appearing fully healthy, Luck should be a QB1 play in the AFC Divisional Round.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 285 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in a 33-17 win over the Tennessee Titans. He also added seven carries for 17 yards on the ground. While Luck threw an ugly pick-six in the second quarter to keep the Titans hopes alive, it should not overshadow how effective the Colts were in the red zone. All three of Luck's passing touchdowns came inside Tennessee's 20 yard line, with the Colts converting on four of their seven trips to that part of the field. After putting up one more three touchdown effort to thrust the Colts into the AFC Wild Card Round, Luck is certainly the front-runner to be comeback player of the year with 4,592 passing yards, 39 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions on the 2018 season. Luck will have a great opportunity to produce once again against the Houston Texans in their first bout of the playoffs, who Luck trounced for 863 passing yards, six touchdowns, and one interception when he faced them in two contests this season.
