Colts WR depth chart unclear

The Indianapolis Star - [Full Article]

It will be interesting to see how the Colts line up in two wide-receiver sets. This much is certain: Reggie Wayne starts. Somebody asked on Twitter if that could be stated as fact. Yes, it can. Wayne is still a Pro Bowl WR. You don’t sit him.

The early hunch is Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton will alternate at the other starting WR slot when they are in two-receiver sets. This is why the team has training camp and preseason games. Such roles sort themselves out.

“We feel good about acquiring a talented player in Darrius Heyward-Bey,” GM Ryan Grigson said in a team release. “He’s big, strong and shows toughness in traffic and after the catch. He’s got elite finishing speed that’s as good as there is in the NFL.”

Fantasy Impact: 

We're expecting Hilton to emerge as the solid starter opposite Wayne with DHB coming in on three-receiver sets. Hilton showed too much promise in his rookie season to take a back seat to Heyward-Bey, though only time will tell.
