Ever since quarterback Andrew Luck was an 18-year-old freshman at Stanford, he was wildly being regarded as the best quarterback to come out of college since John Elway, who by coincidence also played quarterback at Stanford. Luck’s legendary status and Chuck Norris-like myths grew and grew before he even took an NFL snap. (Of course, Andrew Luck is the only documented case of a human being beating a brick wall in a game of tennis.) The consensus number one quarterback was taken first overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2012 draft and immediately lit up the league as a rookie. He threw for over 4,000 yards and 24 touchdowns in his rookie campaign.
Luck was an easy 1.01 rookie pick in 2QB and superflex formats as well as in standard dynasty format which has not been the case for any quarterback since that 2012 draft. Since being drafted, Luck was easily a top five-ten (QB1) fantasy quarterback and arguably a top three dynasty quarterback regardless of league format – up until this past year, that is.
Once the Colts were ousted into the off-season back in the 2016 season, it was reported in January of 2017 that Luck had surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair a torn labrum. Rumors were that he played through this injury for the last two football seasons, which seems extremely odd to me unless it was minor in nature and gradually turned into a larger tear as the games progressed.
