Darrius Heyward-Bey finds late touchdown to salvage fantasy day

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Darrius Heyward-Bey burned the Broncos defense for a huge score in the fourth quarter. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darrius Heyward-Bey caught five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Broncos. He made a nice cutback and wound up burning the Denver secondary for a 56-yard score with just five minutes to play on Thursday night.

Heyward-Bey's touchdown was his first since Week 10. His 56-yarder marked the second-longest catch for him in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: Only Rod Streater saw more targets than DHB throughout the night. He also tied Denarius Moore with six looks overall from Carson Palmer.

We've seen a rather inconsistent Heyward-Bey this season, but it's clear he has the ability to take it to the house if he gets out in space. He's still hard to start on a regular basis, though.
