IT'S SAFE TO SAY the Colts, who selected Andrew Luck No. 1 overall, would not want to redo the 2012 NFL draft. They have a quarterback to build their franchise around. But betcha the Redskins wouldn't mind a do-over, exchanging oft-injured Robert Griffin III, the No. 2 pick. The Redskins also took Kirk Cousins with the 102nd pick. Their franchise is at a crossroads. Miami might be OK with Ryan Tannehill (No. 8). Cleveland, which took Brandon Weeden at No. 22, definitely wishes it still had the receipt.

ANDREW LUCK phoned Zach Ertz last week and the former Stanford teammates wished each other luck in their season openers. They also discussed meeting up before Monday night's game at Lucas Oil Stadium, where for the first time in each of their burgeoning professional careers they will play as opponents. Luck, the Colts' third-year quarterback, and Ertz, the Eagles' second-year tight end, are rising stars at their respective positions. Their talent was apparent early in each of their careers at Stanford, where they connected nine times for touchdowns in two seasons on the field together, in 2010 and 2011.

Wondering whether to start Drew Brees and A.J. Green, or to bench Geno Smith and Jason Avant? If you're looking for help with your starting-lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 1 of the 2014 season.   Watch 'em roll Jay Cutler, QB, Bears vs. Bills. With an explosive array of weapons at his disposal, and a porous secondary in his sights, Cutler should get his season off to a rousing start. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers at Cowboys.

IN THE PAST, some have accused Roger Goodell of dropping the ball when it comes to issuing suspensions. Yesterday, he dropped the hammer. On an owner, no less. The NFL commissioner suspended Colts owner Jim Irsay for six regular-season games and gave him a maximum fine of $500,000 for violating the league's personal conduct policy. That's a bit more than the four-game suspension players such as Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson get for a first-time violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

The Eagles acquired kicker Cody Parkey from the Colts on Wednesday for running back David Fluellen. Parkey was waived Tuesday night and Fluellen was waived Wednesday morning, although they were exchanged instead before waivers processed at 4 p.m. Parkey, a 22-year-old rookie from Auburn, is 2 for 2 on field goals this preseason with a longest of 45 yards. His strength appears to be kickoffs, and he led college football with 69 touchbacks last season. Parkey was 15 of 21 on field goals as a senior, including 5 of 6 from 40 to 49 yards and 1 of 4 from beyond 50 yards.

Given the fortuitous circumstances of their 45-44 comeback win over the Kansas City Chiefs, you have to figure that the Indianapolis Colts are big believers in luck (hey, they have a horseshoe on their helmets). So it make sense that they would add an extra lucky charm to help their postseason run - and maybe put a jinx on their next opponent, the New England Patriots. On Monday, the Colts signed former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch, just days before playing the wide receiver's ex-team in the divisional round.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 12 of the 2013 season. Watch 'em roll Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49ers at Redskins. He hasn't given us much to pin our hopes on lately, but Kaepernick offers significant upside in this juicy matchup. Washington has been overly generous to opposing QBs, even at home. And the Monday night factor should work in favor of Kaepernick, who relishes the spotlight. Andre Brown, RB, Giants vs. Cowboys. No defense has surrendered more fantasy points to opposing backs than Dallas'.

THE QUESTION of the week came from Joe Malizia, an old friend of the Fantasy Football department who is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Drum in upstate New York. He asked whether it was time to drop Colts running back Trent Richardson? Malizia, 40, grew up in Roxborough and is headed to Afghanistan for a short deployment after the first of the year. Fantasy has always been a way for him to stay tethered to family and friends back here. About 10 years ago, we wrote a story about an Oakland-based group that had a draft in 1963 and is widely considered the first fantasy football league.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7. Watch 'em roll Cam Newton, QB, Panthers vs. Rams. I called him the most frustrating QB in Fantasyland earlier this week, and he'll probably prove me right again Sunday. But after his monster outing against the Vikings, he should - mind you, should - take advantage of another tasty matchup with the Rams' subpar pass defense. Brandon Jacobs, RB, Giants vs. Vikings. You're not chasing last week's stats when Jacobs' next matchup is against the defense that surrenders the most fantasy points to opposing rushers.

THE COLTS' PLAN to bring Ahmad Bradshaw along slowly went out the barn door when second-year back Vick Ballard tore up his right knee in practice on Thursday. Colts coach Chuck Pagano called it "a freak accident" during a non-contact drill and said Ballard will have season-ending surgery. While we all wish Ballard well, there is a very real fantasy development here, and anyone who stashed Bradshaw on their roster could benefit greatly. "I'm ready. I'm set to go," Bradshaw said yesterday.
