LaVon Brazill Gaining Value With Austin Collie Injured: Fantasy Implications

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - AUGUST 12: LaVon Brazill #15 of the Indianapolis Colts stretches for a first down after catching a pass against Josh Gordy #25 of the St. Louis Rams during a preseason NFL game at Lucas Oil Stadium on August 12, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

The Colts receiving corps is a little depleted with a few players out, and LaVon Brazill is become a bigger target. We break down the fantasy implications.

LaVon Brazill played as the No. 3 receiver in the Colts first two preseason games, and now with Austin Collie missing action due to a possible concussion, he could see a lot more targets coming his way as the No. 2 wide out.

Analysis: Through two preseason games, Brazill has seen 10 targets come his way. The rookie out of Ohio is gaining momentum in the fantasy world, emerging as a sleeper pick by several experts. He has good speed and solid hands from what we've seen so far in 2012. Donnie Avery, the next receiver on the Colts depth chart, continues to sit out with yet another injury. Given his track record with ailments in the past, Brazill shouldn't expect too much competition from Avery. Beyond Collie and Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis is extremely young in the receiving corps. If Brazill keeps up his strong play, he'll be someone to consider for your lineup.
