Andrew Luck’s Arm Shows Signs of Life, Launches 464 Yards + 4 TDs

Entering Week 4, Andrew Luck’s arm strength was being called into question, and appropriately so: He had been held under 180 passing yards for two straight weeks. His YPA had dropped from 6.0 to 5.8 to 4.1 in consecutive weeks. He was pulled on a Hail Mary attempt for Jacoby Brissett — talk about the warning sign of all warning signs.

Exit Week 4, and these concerns should be laid to rest. Days after insisting he “can make all the throws” with a “full arsenal,” Luck put the money where his mouth was, throwing a whopping 62 attempts for 464 yards — both career highs — while tossing 4 TDs in the process. In general, Luck was far more willing and accurate pushing the ball downfield. After erasing his arm question marks, Luck’s well on his path towards a QB1 Return.

That path may hit a speed bump in Week 5, however. The Patriots are fresh off their best defensive effort, and Luck’s arm has to be sore following such heavy usage, and on a short week. Even more concerning, TY Hilton is unlikely to play with a hamstring ailment, leaving Luck with a “Weapons Cabinet” headlined by Ryan Grant, Chester RogersEric Ebron, and Nyhiem Hines (lol). Still, owners have to be encouraged with this massive rebound.
