Reggie Wayne Fantasy News

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Donte Moncrief played a bit more than Hakeem Nicks in Week 7, though Nicks has out-snapped Moncrief 277 to 96 on the season and 35 to 12 as recently as Week 6. Moncrief has offered a better FP/snap, per our Player Snap App. We'll keep our ear to the ground and try to determine which player would be the better desperation start in Week 8, though right now we would lean Nicks’s way, given his experience. Dwayne Allen might be the biggest beneficiary of extra work in the passing game.

Colts WRs Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief have one thing in common: Both could take on greater roles if Reggie Wayne is out of the lineup.

"I think the ball is being spread around, and (Nicks') opportunities are going to come," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. "The more (defenses) adjust to take away certain receivers, tight ends or whoever it may be, it's just a matter of time before a pro like Hakeem has an opportunity to capitalize on the right matchup."

Regarding Moncrief, Hamilton said coaches have already gained enough confidence to play him in key situations without fear of the moment being too big.

"He's ahead of schedule," Hamilton said. "He's a guy that we feel like at any given moment we can plug him in and he'll be ready to go out there and perform at the level that's expected."

Fantasy Impact:

There isn't a clear cut winner if Wayne is sidelined, but Moncrief did out-snap Nicks in Week 7, while Nicks has far more experience.

A source with knowledge of the situation said that while the injury to Reggie Wayne’s left elbow doesn’t appear to be serious, it could force him to miss a game or two. Coach Chuck Pagano didn’t reveal the results of a MRI on Wayne’s elbow during his Monday press conference.

Wayne suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s 27-0 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. He went up for a pass from quarterback Andrew Luck and was knocked off balance by Bengals cornerback Adam Jones. Wayne cushioned his fall by using his left arm.

Fantasy Impact:

This keeps getting worse. Wayne eventually came back into the game last week after hurting the elbow, but then said after the game the injury wasn't a big deal. We had a report about the MRI on Monday. Hakeem Nicks could step into a bigger workload if Wayne misses time.
