Andrew Luck had some ups and downs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andrew Luck was on par with expectations with 309 yards on 23-of-45 passing with three picks and score.

Analysis: Obviously, the three picks are a major flaw in Luck's performance and those will have to disappear for the fantasy owners that were counting on him as a high-upside backup. However, the Bears have a very good defense and the pressure certainly impacted Luck's ugly outing. The Colts D is underwhelming to say least, so Luck will be forced to sling it quite a bit when the Colts are on the comeback trail. Even though the matchup is much better against the Vikings next week, we still would suggest keeping him on the bench.
