SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

This was the last projection we'll be doing for Andrew Luck assuming his retirement sticks.  For the sake of posterity we'll keep this posted.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Andrew Luck as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019. His 358 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Ben Roethlisberger and ahead of Cam Newton. He has averaged 25.06 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 22.3 fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #4 most highly owned quarterback. Andrew Luck is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #3 fantasy position rank.
