Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Darrius Heyward-Bey

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Darrius Heyward-Bey's chances are going up and he'll get another one against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Indianapolis Colts are on the short week and will take on a divisional rival in the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.

Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey hasn't been a very productive starter for the Colts this season, totaling 22 catches for 231 yards and one score. Clearly, the speedster averaging just 10.5 yards per catch is a disappointment.

He was hurt most of earlier this year and the team held him out of some practice two weeks ago, but he returned to a full participant last week. He really has done much and the Colts are really missing Reggie Wayne badly.

In his last two games, he was targeted 12 times and caught just four of those balls. What's more, he had a bad drop and was the intended receiver on Andrew Luck's first pick against the Rams.

Fantasy impact: Teams tend not to score as much on short weeks, so it's going to be really tough to count on DHB. Sure, the Titans will key on T.Y. Hilton, but the lack of chemistry between Luck and DHB jumps off the screen. He's only worth using in 16-team leagues or deeper. If that.
