2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: ANDREW LUCK CERTAIN TO MISS WEEK 1 AND LIKELY MORE

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay did his best dodge-and-weaver when meeting with the media on Thursday in terms of the availability of QB Andrew Luck and when reading through the lines, it appears he is a lock to miss Week 1 and maybe more.  Luck continues to come along at a deliberate pace from offseason shoulder surgery and the Colts coaching staff/front office have seemingly made it their mission to be as vague as possible on that front.  A slam-dunk top tier fantasy football quarterback when healthy, the loss of Luck is a HUGE negative for the values of wideouts T.Y. Hilton and Donte Monctief; not to mention tight end Jack Doyle.  If you own any of these three receivers, things are looking grim in terms of their immediate fantasy football outlooks and if Luck misses more than the opener which is looking more likely by the day, then crisis time will be reached.  There will likely be no market for Hilton, Moncrief, or Doyle so your best left to holding them and the same goes for Luck who still has all the talent in the world to be a big-time player if he gets himself right.  For now though, all seems grim here with no end in sight for the trouble.
