Fantasy Football: Top 5 Players to Avoid in the Draft

USA TODAY Sports

2. Andrew Luck (QB, Indianapolis Colts)

Andrew Luck has finally returned after missing last season with a shoulder injury. The last couple of years have been rough for Luck, especially with injuries. In 2016 (the last year Luck played), Luck was the fourth-ranked quarterback in fantasy scoring.

I know he’s back and everyone is saying he looks healthy. But, it’s hard for me to believe he’ll return to his old self immediately. Of course, I’m hoping he maintains his health, but shoulder injuries are no joke when it comes to QB’s. For a guy with the last name of Luck, he hasn’t had much for the past year.

Luck is a talented QB, but it remains to be seen what he’ll look like come Week 1 of the regular season. He’s played a few snaps in preseason so far, looking a bit rusty not playing for a whole NFL season last year (which is expected). He’s also shown a few flashes of the talent we grew accustomed to before his injuries.

At this moment, Luck is being drafted as the eighth QB in fantasy. That could prove to be a steal if he can maintain his health, but it could come back to bite you if he struggles. He also lacks many weapons on offense with T.Y Hilton as the main guy. I would hold your horses on your expectations for Luck this season (Get it? He’s on the Colts). I’ll show myself out.
