Chester Rogers, WR, Indianapolis Colts
After a slow start in Week 6 against the New York Jets, Rogers finished with four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown. He also has double-digit targets in three straight games, as Andrew Luck continues to air it out plenty (288 attempts through six games).
Drops have been an issue for Rogers and the Colts’ wide receivers as a group. But with T.Y. Hilton (chest, hamstring) very banged up a high-volume passing attack like Indianapolis’ has to go to someone and the next two games against the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders look favorable.
With 20 catches over the last three games, Rogers’ fantasy value is greatest in PPR leagues as a low-end WR3. But Luck’s throwing volume is also bringing enough standard scoring production to put him on the radar in that format too.
