Austin Collie has been cleared to play in Sunday's game between the Colts and the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Austin Collie has been cleared to play and should be "full-go" for Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Minnesota Vikings, head coach Chuck Pagano announced Wednesday. Collie has been on the shelf for the Colts since suffering a concussion in preseason. He was limited in practice last week before being ruled out at game-time against the Chicago Bears.

Analysis: With rookie T.Y. Hilton expected to return as well, the Colts should be much stronger in the passing game this week. Just how effective either receiver will be remains to be seen considering the time they've spent sitting. You might want to wait to see how they perform this week before moving your lineup around. The news probably isn't too encouraging for Reggie Wayne owners, who quite enjoyed his nine catches off 18 targets from last Sunday's game. While Wayne should see his targets drop, at least he won't see as much attention from opposing secondaries.
