Andrew Luck was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday after passing for 433 yards and two touchdowns to help the Indianapolis Colts defeat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. He set an NFL record for the most passing yards in a single game by a rookie, breaking Cam Newton's one-year-old record of 422 yards.
Luck also matched Peyton Manning's record of four 300-yard-plus passing performances by a first-year player. On the year, Luck is now 190-for-336 passing for 2,404 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: Luck looked every bit like what a No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft should look like in leading the Colts to a pivotal win over the Dolphins. He averaged a season-high 9.0 yards per attempt, raising his YPA to a solid 7.2 on the year.
Luck is still a rookie, and hasn't shown the consistency to be a weekly fantasy starter in standard fantasy formats for the moment. That could certainly change with a string of performances like the one he had Sunday. He is a solid QB2/backup to own, however. He has a great matchup this week against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that is giving up 256 yards passing per game.
