Reggie Wayne was targeted six times and caught three passes for 41 yards during Saturday's preseason game between the Colts and Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 41 yards and was targeted six times by Andrew Luck during Saturday's preseason game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins. Wayne has been one of Luck's favorite targets throughout preseason, and figures to be a big part of the Colts' gameplan with the start of the regular season just around the corner.

Analysis: There has been some skepticism that Wayne can still be an elite fantasy prospect, but although he's set to turn 34 in November it's clear that the Colts still value him. The fact that Andrew Luck has been as-advertised through three weeks of preseason certainly helps his cause. There is no reason for Wayne to be on the field when the Colts play the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday. He may have slipped into WR3/Flex territory this season, but he is still plenty valuable as a fantasy option.
