Andrew Luck will get more reps this week as he faces on of the leagues top defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is expected to get more reps this week as Indianapolis faces the Steelers on Sunday night. The Colts are coming off of a dominating 38-3 win over the Rams, but Pittsburgh should provide a more experienced and talented group of defenders for Luck to face and he'll be in there for longer than he was last week.

Fantasy Implications: Luck was 10-of-16 for 188 yards, 2 TD and 0 INT against the Rams in the first preseason game, but St. Louis does not have the best defense in the NFL. The Steelers allowed the fewest points in the NFL last season and the fewest passing yards, so even if it is a preseason game without James Harrison, Luck will be facing one of his toughest challenge to date. If he plays as well as he did against the Rams, drafting Luck in your fantasy league is going to start picking up even more steam.
