Da'Rick Rogers, LaVon Brazill each have big games for Colts despite fantasy invisibility.

The two wide receivers burst from relative anonymity to score two touchdowns apiece Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Indianapolis Colts probably weren't expecting big contributions from undrafted rookie Da'Rick Rogers or second-year sixth-rounder LaVon Brazill in 2013, and until Sunday, they were right. Both players had career-best (or, in Rogers' case, career-first) games Sunday, though, accounting for all four Indianapolis touchdowns in the Colts' 42-28 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Rogers, who entered Sunday without even a target in his career, caught six passes for 107 yards and two scores Sunday, scoring on 69- and 2-yard connections with quarterback Andrew Luck. Brazill had been more of a tertiary piece for the Colts, with eight catches and 97 yards on the year, but caught three for 53 yards and two scores himself Sunday. Brazill's scores came on 19- and 29-yard catches.

Fantasy impact: With wide receiver T.Y. Hilton struggling mightily of late (11 total fantasy points in his last four), and Darrius Heyward-Bey doing little worth nothing. the Colts might look to the two relative newcomers more and more often. For now, they aren't worth fantasy use, but if this keeps up that could change.
