The Indianapolis Colts announced on Tuesday that QB Andrew Luck will be out 2-6 weeks with a lacerated kidney and abdominal tear suffered in Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Denver Broncos. This marks the second time that Luck will be forced to miss an extended amount of time this year, and with no real indication of when he'll return, it's time to start looking for a replacement in your fantasy football lineup. Here are four guys you should target to replace him:
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Bills
Taylor is healthy now and he's worth adding in most leagues. He's owned in less than 60 percent of leagues, so you might be able to grab him, and is a dual-threat - which is a big boost to his fantasy stock. He's put up at least 15 points in all but one game he's played this season, meaning he's someone you can rely on.
Derek Carr, QB, Raiders
Carr has been on fire the past few weeks, scoring at least 20 points in five of Oakland's eight games this year. He had a few clunkers early this season, but Carr has played like a Top 10 fantasy QB lately. He's also owned in less than 60 percent of leagues as and could be a quality matchup play each week.
Tony Romo, QB, Cowboys
Yep, we're at the point where it's okay to add an injured Romo if he's on the market. He'll be back soon and he should return to his Top 10 QB numbers. There's some risk, but the upside is high.
Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans
This one is risky, but Mariota is also likely to be available on the waiver wire. He's owned in just 37 percent of leagues, and has played great in several games this season - including in last week's win over the Saints. If you're looking for a high upside backup, Mariota is a smart investment.Back to the Fantasy Football Newsfeed
