Buying Luck

Postby psu007 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 8:33 am

So what is Andrew Luck's value right now? If you were trying to buy Luck, what do you feel comfortable paying without knowing the full extent of his injury going forward?

Owners who have held him for this long aren't likely to sell for anything less than his peak value as we largely expect him to return to form.

I'm not sure how many buyers would be willing to pay that given his injuries, but it's probably what it will cost.

What was peak cost, roughly current Rodgers or Wentz value?

On the flip side, I'm trying to decide what feels reasonable given the uncertainty, so from a buyers perspective. The Luck owner in my league seems receptive to moving him and I don't get the sense he's looking for peak value.

You might be able to get Luck for a safer but low-upside QB like Cousins, Goff, Ryan, or Stafford

He was nearby Rodgers in startup ADP last year. I imagine now he's closer to Mariota or Stafford, which seems fair to me.

1QB league? I'd give a late 1st and think I was buying low.

Owners are probably going to want 1.06-1.07 but the buying market is probably in the 1.10 range

In my 3 startups this year he’s ben in the 7-9 range (75-100 in Pick terms). Has gone after guys like Stafford, Mariota, Goff and even mahomes in most.

I like him and personally would prefer him to all of them. As a buyer early 2, seller mid to late 1.
