Fourth-year wide receiver Chester Rogers was, arguably, the best player on the field during Tuesday’s practice open to reporters.
Whether it was his diving sideline catch or his leaping, fingertip grab later in the workout, Rogers’ presence was felt throughout. Rogers, per usual, showed his ability in space, where he is often at his best because of his ability to make defenders miss. With veteran T.Y. Hilton and rookie Parris Campbell sidelined, Rogers got extensive work with the first-team offense and quarterback Jacoby Brissett. He took full advantage.
Indy's WR room is certainly a crowded one with T.Y. Hilton, Deon Cain's impending return from injury and the additions of Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell this offseason. Rogers has shown flashes of production in his three-year tenure with the Colts but averaged just 7.1 PPR points per contest last season. He needs to show more consistency to be fantasy relevant, but Indy's offense has the ability to support a deep receiving corps.
