Andrew Luck Still Not Throwing, Not 'Sullen Or Morose' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jun 28, 2017 1:19 pm

Andrew Luck is still not throwing, but he remains unconcerned.

The quarterback is still recovering from shoulder surgery.

"Feeling better and better every week," Luck said. "Still haven't started throwing. But that process will come when it's ready."

When asked about the status of his rehab, he replied: "No reason to be sullen or morose! It's a beautiful day."

Just drafted him in a 20 team league. He better start throwing or his owners will become sullen and Morose. Anybody have an opinion of my trade offer of Luck and M Gordon for Bortles and L Bell? My current backup QB is T Taylor.

Don't do that trade. Luck is likely to be ready come week 1 but suppose he isn't returning week 4...he will likely be one of the top scorers at QB the remaining weeks. Its a safe bet he will outperform Bortles even if he missed the first month. Bell is awesome but Gordon will likely put up good scores himself too. Bells scoring isn't going to be enough of a difference to cover how much scoring you lose week to week with the QB swap. I wouldn't do that trade. Just my opinion though.

Edit...I forgot you said your backup was Tyrod. You've got a starter to give you some numbers if Luck isn't starting week 1. You'd be crazy to do the trade.

Thanks for the reply. This is a PPR league so Bell is likely to outpoint Gordon by over 100 points. I really doubt Luck outpoints Taylor by over 100. Honestly I think the trade is a no brainer in my favor.
