Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Da'Rick Rogers getting hot at the right time

The rookie is finally getting regular playing time and making the most of it. Could he be a fantasy savior during the playoffs?

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers always had talent, but off-field issues led every team to pass on him in the 2013 NFL Draft. He signed with the Buffalo Bills before training camp, but was later cut and signed by the Colts. It was looking like a lost rookie season for Rogers.

Things changed quickly over the past few weeks. When Reggie Wayne tore his ACL, Rogers started to see more snaps, but still wasn't involved in the passing game until last week. The Colts finally gave up on Darrius Heyward-Bey and gave Rogers a chance to show his talent. He did not disappoint, grabbing six catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy impact: Rogers remains raw and unpredictable, but the Colts seem to realize that he's too talented to keep off the field. If you're hurting for depth at the WR3 spot, he'll be a good gamble against a Texans defense just mailing it in this week. "The Rick" Rogers will be a quality stash in Dynasty leagues and has breakout potential in 2014 if he stays out of trouble.
