Andrew Luck Retiring: Fantasy Implications

With a sudden and shocking announcement by Andrew Luck, that his is retiring from the NFL, let’s examine what that means on your fantasy outlook.

An emotional and what I believe to be heartfelt announcement, at the Colts press conference,  Andrew Luck is retiring.  https://godefylife.com/2019/08/24/andrew-luck-to-retire/#more-43379

Here is some info to take in the world of fantasy.

Your potential  QB Pivots-

Carson Wentz- PHI- Projected QB rank – 8th

4500 Yards, 32 Passing TD

Jared Goff -LAR – Projected QB rank- 10

4555 Yards, 31 Passing TD

Sleeper –

Jacoby  Brissett- IND- Projected QB rank- 19

3800 Yards, 22 Passing TD – This number could greatly improve. Big upgrades on the offensive line ( Quenton Nelson).  Improved wide receiver play, and a much improved red zone TE.  Brissett inherits a Colts offense that is built for Luck, but a QB with skill should be about to step in and make some noise.  Look out for this QB on the waiver wire.

Marlon Mack should get increased touches, but I’m not sure if that will mean increased production, as the Colts will be defended differently by teams across the league.

Look out for an uptick in production for Eric Ebron. And Downtick for T.Y Hilton as Brissett’s depth to target is no where near Luck’s.
