With a first-year GM, the Colts should take a long-term view with their $140 million franchise QB and get him ready for the 2018 season.
Luck, who had shoulder surgery in January, practiced for two days two weeks ago and then amped up his workload during his two days of practice last week.
The Chiefs did manage to get into the end zone on their next possession. Smith connected with De’Anthony Thomas for a 57-yard touchdown. And if Reid had taken the points earlier, Kansas City would have a lead.
Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Who needs great quarterback play? Not Brown, especially judging by his exceptional catch on a deflection off Phillip Gaines’ helmet that Brown took 51 yards for a touchdown and a nine-point lead with 3:24 remaining in the game. Brown’s catch played a major part in his 29.5 PPR point fantasy day, the best among wide receivers through the 4 p.m. ET games.
