Reggie Wayne exploded against the Bears to lead the way in receiving for the Colts in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andrew Luck threw for over 300 yards in his first regular season game, and he turned to Reggie Wayne to rack up nearly half of his yardage. Wayne finished with nine receptions for a whopping 135 yards on 18 targets from his rookie quarterback.

Fantasy Impact: With Austin Collie sidelined for Week 1, Wayne emerged as the primary target in the Colts receiving corps. While fantasy owners surely expected him to see an increase in value, few likely anticipated this kind of scoring outburst. Plenty of critics were ready to write Wayne off heading into 2012, but he proved Sunday he isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Keep an eye on Collie to see if he plays in Week 2. His presence will take away from Wayne's fantasy production. However, this is a promising start for the veteran wideout.
