Andrew Luck ruled out for Week 2, fantasy value currently at -100

Can this man PLEASE get healthy ASAP?

NFL: Detroit Lions at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Sorry those daring or deranged enough to draft Andrew Luck in your fantasy leagues, you might not be seeing your quarterback anytime soon:

It’s never a good thing when the head coach rules out a player practically a full week before the game. Clearly Luck is still a long ways off from throwing a football, let alone seeing any NFL action. I’m sure Colts fans, after seeing what their team looks like with Scott Tolzien at the helm, are crossing all their appendages hoping Luck comes back soon.

The Colts offense looked utterly overwhelmed under Tolzien Sunday, managing only 225 total net yards of offense while giving up two pick-sixes. The Colts were so bad they got blown out by the Rams. That’s really all you need to know.

Who knows if Tolzien or Jacoby Brissett will be marched out to slaughter in week two but I will say I’m staying away from all Colts in fantasy. Frank Gore did look good Sunday but I’d be worried how much damage he’ll be able to do with defenses stacking the box, daring whomever's behind center to throw the ball.

Expert analysis on Colts fantasy outlook in 2018: bleak.
