Reggie Wayne is active and has decent fantasy value

Reggie Wayne is back from a one-game absence. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne is active against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. He missed Week 8 due to an elbow injury but has been back at practice this week.

He was a full participant in practice on Friday and previously said he won't be limited on Monday. Wayne was coming off two horrible games, totaling just 50 yards on eight catches against the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals.

Even before the elbow issue, he has hardly been the player we've become accustomed to, catching just 38 passes for 434 yards and a single touchdown through seven contests. Wayne also was one of the most durable players in the league before his ACL tear in 2013, playing in all 16 games in every year from 2002-2012.

Wayne's return shouldn't affect fantasy superstar T.Y. Hilton, and perhaps won't hurt the tight ends either.

Fantasy impact: Wayne has been ready to go since before the weekend, so if you are in a deep league and chose to play him then he should be good to go.
