Fantasy Football Stock Report: Colts make Andrew Luck the highest-paid player ever

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

Not only did the Colts sign Andrew Luck through 2021, but his new six-year, $140 million contract makes him the highest-paid player in the history of the NFL. Even though he is extremely smart (duh, he went to Stanford), Luck has struggled to make smart choices with the football. Luck has thrown double-digit interceptions in three of his four NFL seasons (including 12 in seven games in ’16), and has a tendency to throw the ball into tight coverage. Now that Luck is healthy, he should be a major bounce-back candidate in 2016.

“Speaking publicly about the incident for the first time, the Cowboys running back gave a different account than the one circulated by his coaches earlier this month to explain the accident that required surgery and is expected to keep him out for about two months.”

The Cowboys running back coach initially said Darren McFadden broke his elbow when he dove to catch his cell phone, but that was proven wrong on Monday when he told reporters that he slipped on cement near a swimming pool. Story aside, McFadden will be questionable for Week 1, as he recovers from surgery on his broken elbow. He will miss the majority of camp, which will most likely allow newcomer Alfred Morris to open the year as Ezekiel Elliott’s backup. McFadden could be a solid handcuff candidate with Elliott, especially if the Cowboys stay true to their word and expect to give the rookie 300-plus carries.

“Seferian-Jenkins is a $10 million talent with a ten-cent head. In just two seasons with the Buccaneers, he’s proved he has the uncanny ability to turn a molehill of a mistake into a mushroom cloud of trouble.  The problem has the potential to cost him his job.”

Austin Sefarian-Jenkins is one of the more talented tight ends in the league, but it looks like he is on thin ice in Tampa. ASJ teased fantasy owners in the opening game of 2015 with a 5/110/2 statline against the Titans; however, he battled injuries for the remainder of the season. The tight end will continue to be hit-or-miss in 2016, so it would make sense to avoid him. Keep an eye on backup Cameron Brate, who could start over ASJ to begin the season.

Not Strictly Fantasy:

  • Haha, Johnny Manziel is currently in Cabo and he told TMZ Sports that he’s going “completely sober” starting on July 1st. Good one.
  • June was a tough month for big-time deaths, so the guys at Pardon My Take decided to talk to death and get the lowdown.
  • It was a wild day in the NHL. Subban is headed to Nashville, Shea Weber is headed to Montreal, Stamkos is staying home and Chiarelli wanted no part of the top two picks of the 2010 draft.
