Darrius Heyward-Bey in a slump, fantasy value almost zilch

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts wide receiver hasn’t quite filled the shoes of teammate Reggie Wayne. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is averaging less than two catches per game with teammate Reggie Wayne (knee) sidelined, according to the Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder.

Fantasy Impact: Heyward-Bey was easily the most added receiver on the Colts roster in fantasy leagues when Wayne went down for the season. The presumption was he'd handle a steady workload opposite T.Y. Hilton but that hasn't happened.

DHB has a grand total of just five catches over the last three games and the Colts offense has been struggling as a whole. Facing the Cincinnati Bengals while in a slump is not exactly a dream scenario for fantasy owners.

Even if you're in deeper leagues and desperate there are many important factors to consider. Firstly, quarterback Andrew Luck hasn't exactly been his best over the last month or so. Secondly, in addition to having Hilton as his number one receiver, Luck is finding tight end Coby Fleener more often lately, leaving Heyward-Bey stuck in a rut for looks.
