Reggie Wayne Fantasy News
Tuesday, December 10, 2013, 10:10am
The second-year wide receiver was on the field for 45 snaps in Indianapolis' 42-28 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The playing time produced all of two catches for seven yards.
The quiet afternoon was part of a disturbing trend for Hilton.
Hilton had two big games coming off the team's loss of WR1 Reggie Wayne, but Hilton admitted lately he's been drawing double teams and also team's top cornerbacks. Hilton is becoming a risky play at this point because over the last four weeks he has just 17 receptions for 135 yards. On top of that, it's another tough matchup against Houston in Week 15.

Wayne: Trent Richardson felt 'forced' into offense
Wednesday, December 4, 2013, 11:29pm
"He came to me, he wasn't pouting or anything. This was the next day after he found out he was demoted and he said, 'Now I can sit back and actually watch the way it's supposed to be done.' He kind of feels that he was maybe forced into it early without actually learning it."
Whatever the reason for Richardson's struggles, he's playing behind Donald Brown now. Brown should be a solid RB2-type the rest of the way. He is the #21 RB since Week 9.

MRI confirms Reggie Wayne tore ACL

It's a huge loss for the Colts, who will have to go with T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey as their two starting WRs. LaVon Brazill is next up on the depth chart, but this could leave the aggressive Colts, who appear to be all-in this season, in the market for a WR before the trade deadline. The team has a bye this week to try and get the situation straightened out. At the very least, look for them to bring in a free agent.
Darrius Heyward-Bey gaining confidence

The bigger news is that T.Y. Hilton will remain the WR3 for now. He's only been seeing snaps in three-WR sets which means Heyward-Bey will start opposite of Reggie Wayne. We still rank Hilton way ahead of Heyward-Bey on our WR list. But with DHB seemingly on track for more snaps, keep an eye on him as a possible pickup, either on the wire or on upcoming drafts. His name hasn't been called much on fantasy draft day.
Darrius Heyward-Bey sprains knee
Sunday, August 4, 2013, 7:04pm
The veteran wide receiver, signed by the Colts in April, limped off the practice field Sunday with a sprained knee, according to The Indianapolis Star.
Hilton was getting high praise from HC Chuck Pagano just very recently despite the fact DHB was running with the first team.
Darrius Heyward-Bey runs as Colts WR2

The news here is T.Y. Hilton's value potentially takes a hit if this continues. This would make him the third option and the odd man out of the Colts' two-TE sets. It's early, of course, but it's something to monitor as he was considered a mid-round WR option. Obviously Heyward-Bey would move up the rankings as well.
LaVon Brazill suspended for four games
Monday, June 24, 2013, 4:02pm
Brazill will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sep. 30 following the team’s September 29 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brazill is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

But the New York Giants receiver said in an interview with NFL Network on Wednesday morning that his absence was not because of his desire for a new long-term contract.
"I really don't talk about my contract in the media and stuff like that," Nicks said. "But contract wasn't related."
It sounds like there won't be any issues with Nicks showing up to training camp. He takes a bit of a hit in our rankings at the moment, coming in 16th due to injuries last season. His ADP is the fifth round, about a full round lower than Marques Colston and Reggie Wayne who we have ranked 15th and 17th, respectively.

The Colts had a pretty good vertical passing game last year, and they are looking to develop it further. What’s more, they believe they have the resources to be one of the better teams in the league at stretching the field. Part of their enthusiasm has to do with the acquisition of Darrius Heyward-Bey. Indy coaches see him as a potentially explosive playmaker who can get behind coverage. The Colts will be trying to get Heyward-Bey more opportunities than he ever had in Oakland. And they also want to use second year tight end Coby Fleener more as a vertical threat down the seam. With his speed and size, Fleener should be able to take advantage of man to man matchups as well as zone coverages.
The plan to push the ball downfield doesn't really jibe with the team's move to a West Coast offense, which typically relies on quick hitting throws. Heyward-Bey has played very well in stretches, so it will be interesting to see how he fits in with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton. If he stays healthy (and progresses), DHB could be a long-term replacement for Wayne.

For the first time in years, Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is studying at night in the off-season, although with new HC Bruce Arians, Fitzgerald is never sure what’s going to be on the test the next day. Fitzgerald might study his usual position, the “X,” then be asked to do something completely different, like play the “Z” (flanker), or the “F,” which is sort of a slot position.
