Torn ACL ends Colts WR Wayne’s season

Reggie Wayne has played at an elite level since coming into the league as a rookie. A brief rundown of his résumé highlights: he helped the Colts win a Super Bowl, he made the Pro Bowl six times, he was an All-Pro three times, he led the NFL in receiving yards in 2007, and he’s also the Miami Hurricanes’ career receptions leader with 173. Pretty impressive feat since more than a few good NFL WRs spent their college days at the U. But his 2013 season came to a premature end as he suffered a torn ACL during Week 7 against the Broncos.

 

Wayne haden’t posted enormous fantasy stats this season like he did in the past, but he has shown good consistency, especially for you PPR nuts. Even though his yardage bounced between 50 and 100 on a weekly basis, he failed to catch five or more passes in only one game this season. Scoring only two TDs was somewhat disappointing, but that’s the stat line with which he will finish the season.

 

Darrius Heyward-Bey now becomes a popular pickup, even though his production has been that of a borderline WR3 thus far this year. But Andrew Luck has got to find a primary target now, and he began to look Heyward-Bey’s way more after Wayne went down. Heyward-Bey has the potential to become a solid WR2 the rest of the way. After flaming out with the Raiders, this is his last chance to avoid becoming an unproductive journeyman.
