Andrew Luck limited with shoulder injury, fantasy value still high

We break down the fantasy football impact of Andrew Luck dealing with a shoulder injury heading into Week 1.

Andrew Luck was banged up throughout last season, so seeing him on the Week 1 injury report is a bit concerning. Luck was listed as a limited participant Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

A lacerated kidney, abdominal tear, and broken ribs limited Luck to just seven games in 2016. He never missed a game in his previous three seasons, so his poor health was hopefully just a fluke.

Fantasy Spin: The Indianapolis Colts' offense is once again built around Luck, who is projected to be among the top fantasy players in 2016. He is ranked as a top-three quarterback heading into Week 1. Unless this injury continues to limit him in practice this week, start Luck against the Detroit Lions.
