Darrius Heyward-Bey practices in full, expected to play for fantasy owners

The Colts receiver is back practicing and should be ready to face the Cardinals in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday, according to the Colts Vectren Radio Network's Greg Rakestraw. Heyward-Bey caught just one pass before leaving last week's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Heyward-Bey has five catches in his last three games. It was expected that when teammate Reggie Wayne (torn ACL) went down with a season-ending injury, Heyward-Bey would stand to see the biggest bump in production.

It's safe to say that hasn't happened. He's no longer getting the targets you'd typically expect as quarterback Andrew Luck seems to be sticking with T.Y. Hilton and Colby Fleener for the most part.

Luck is obviously having a difficult time trusting Heyward-Bey and many are questioning whether or not he was actually hurt last week. Since he's no longer on the fantasy radar even in deeper leagues, Heyward-Bey is not really worth stashing right now.

LaVon Brazill is next in line to get more looks for the Colts, so he may be worth a look if you've been burned by Heyward-Bey.
