Andrew Luck posts unlucky fantasy day for owners

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts’ offensive leader was roughed up by the Rams in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 353 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the team's 38-8 loss to the St. Louis Rams. Luck also fumbled the ball in the first quarter of the game, leading directly to a Rams touchdown.

Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners and the Colts themselves had to be shocked by the loss. With three picks and a fumble lost in the game, Luck and his teammates were unable to put points on the board until the final quarter of the game.

Luck led the Colts to a come-from-behind win last week against the Houston Texans and the team has also topped tough teams like the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers this year. With that in mind, Luck's performance against the Rams might as well be chalked up as an off day.

He is perhaps the best young quarterback in the game today and there's no question that the team only goes as far as Luck will take them. It's obvious he's developed chemistry with wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and the Colts have a running game that features more stability in Donald Brown. It's for those reasons that fantasy owners need not fret about the loss. Luck is still a great passer and remains a must-start on a weekly basis.
