With Luck's activation, whether the Colts will carry 4 quarterbacks to start the season is unclear (as Morris' job may be safe until Brissett fully learns the playbook), however, it's a better situation than it was to start the day with the team's latest trade and Luck's apparent progress. Luck underwent surgery in January and his return timetable remains uncertain, but the Colts are tentatively expected to activate him from PUP before Week 1.
That changed just eight days before the start of the regular season. From a fantasy perspective, target Luck in the double digit rounds of upcoming fantasy drafts with extreme caution and tempered expectations. But the Colts still resisted the temptation of adding another veteran player to push backup QB Scott Tolzien in the offseason. If Luck is sidelined for an extended period, the fantasy values of T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Jack Doyle will take a tremendous hit.

Looks like Andrew Luck's not going to sit out the first six weeks of the regular season after all. When it comes down to it, the addition of Brissett is for the present and the future. It's going to take time for Luck to regain his form.
Luck's status for the Colts' 2017 regular season opener against the Los Angeles Rams on September 10 is immediately unknown, however. He needed as many snaps as possible. In 2016, Brissett started two games for the Patriots and is coming off a strong preseason finale performance earlier this week. He played in 15 games last season.
