Colts QB Andrew Luck told the Indianapolis Star this week that his surgically repaired shoulder is "feeling better and better every week." But he also said that he has not yet resumed throwing. Earlier this month, Luck spoke as though he didn't yet know whether he'd be ready for training camp. Owner Jim Irsay billed the surgery as a "positive" in early June, as it repaired an issue Luck had been playing through for a while. But we're anxious to see Luck take the field again and prove that all remains positive. He'll carry some risk in early drafts, but there's time for the veteran QB to assuage worries before the heat of fantasy football draft season in late August and early September.

Colts GM Chris Ballard said Friday that QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is "good to go" for the start of training camp. He'll take planned days off but will take starter's reps when camp opens next Thursday. “He’s throwing the ball pretty well,” Ballard said. We'll be looking for reports on Luck's arm strength and accuracy in practice and will hopefully get to see him in preseason action. He's certainly on track for Week 1 right now but remains a risk/reward fantasy pick.

Colts QB Andrew Luck threw in practice last week for the 1st time in about 8 months. Insider Albert Breer reports that Luck is now "deeper into his rehab without a major hiccup" than he's been since undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder in January 2017. He's traveled this offseason to Los Angeles to work on his mechanics and to Amsterdam to learn about alternative training techniques, according to Breer. Luck still hasn't thrown in 11-on-11s, and his reps will be closely monitored when training camp opens. But he certainly seems to be trending in the right direction. Luck's ADP is sitting in the 11th round as the 17th QB off the board. He's a fine shot to take at that price tag.

Colts QB Andrew Luck threw at Tuesday's minicamp session. (Here's video proof.) As far as we know, it's the 1st time Luck has thrown a football in about 8 months. The Colts have played it extremely safe with his rehab this time around, but owner Jim Irsay said that Luck "won't have any limitations" when training camp opens next month. We'll continue to keep a close eye on him throughout the summer, but Luck has turned into a risk worth taking at his current 11th- or 12th-round price tag. He finished 4th among QBs in fantasy points when we last saw him in 2016.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing a football and isn't expected to do so until training camp, according to insider Kevin Bowen. As far as we know, the last time Luck did any extensive throwing was the middle of last October. He hasn't played in a game since January 1, 2017. Throwing at the start of camp would give him about 6 weeks to get ready for Week 1. As Bowen notes, "the window for any hiccup in his rehab is all but closed at this point of the offseason." Luck's ADP has dropped into the 11th round of recent best-ball drafts.

Colts QB Andrew Luck told reporters Monday that he still has yet to get back to throwing a real football following last year's shoulder surgery. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Luck says he's not freaking out because he's "very, very optimistic" and making progress. It is only April, but today's quotes sound a lot like what we were hearing last spring when we fantasy owners tried to downplay our own concerns. Luck will be among the most closely watched players in the league until he proves he's all the way back.
