ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells says the team remains high on Da'Rick Rogers.
After Hakeem Nicks' signing, Rogers lost a bit of his luster. But keep in mind Nicks only signed a one-year deal, and Reggie Wayne is nearing the end of the line. While Rogers may not make the second-year leap fantasy owners were hoping for, he's only 23 (in June) and his arrow continues to point up. Rogers is the favorite for No. 4 receiver duties, followed by LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen. Apr 6 - 10:23 AM

Colts second-year WR Da'Rick Rogers lost much of his 2014 breakout appeal when the team signed Hakeem Nicks.

Rogers remains a high-ceiling Dynasty hold, but his path to 2014 playing time is now blocked by T.Y. Hilton, Nicks, and Reggie Wayne, with LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen also pushing for snaps. Rogers, 23 in June, finished his rookie year with 14 catches for 192 yards (13.7 YPR) and two touchdowns.

Da'Rick Rogers insists the off-field issues that caused him to fall out of the 2013 draft entirely are "in the past."

"That stuff is in the past," he insisted. "It's all about football for me." Rogers' consistency remained an issue into the playoffs, but he's a candidate for a sophomore leap. "I believe I showed the Colts that they can trust me, that I can come to work and be professional every day," added the 22-year-old. Rogers will be a late-round 2014 re-draft flier with some upside.

Jan 24 - 5:16 PM

Da'Rick Rogers played on 21-of-66 snaps (31.8 percent) in Saturday's season-ending loss to the Patriots.

For the second straight week, Rogers played behind T.Y. Hilton (60 snaps), Griff Whalen (51) and LaVon Brazill (44). It's a reminder that although Rogers possesses great physical tools, he did not fully gain the trust of the coaching staff this season. He'll have a ton of work to do on the field and must keep his nose clean off it in order to get a bead a bigger role in 2014. Assuming Reggie Wayne can get back from his ACL tear, Rogers will be shooting for the No. 3 job.
Jan 13 - 11:03 AM

Da'Rick Rogers was held without a catch on four targets in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Depending on how tough of a grader you are, Rogers committed at least two drops, and possibly three. It was not a good way to head into the offseason for a player who will be firmly on the bubble in next summer's camp. 6-foot-3, 206 pounds with 4.52 wheels, Rogers has ideal size/speed for an NFL receiver, but is a knucklehead off the field and raw on it. There's a chance he eventually puts it all together, but Dynasty-league owners shouldn't be holding their breath.
Jan 12 - 12:29 AM

Da'Rick Rogers played on 28-of-67 (41.7 percent) snaps in Saturday's win over the Chiefs.

T.Y. Hilton led the way with 61 snaps, followed by Griff Whalen (54) and LaVon Brazill (49). Still, Rogers' usage in a playoff game is encouraging considering he was signed off the street by the Colts in September. With a full offseason to work in the program, he could easily pass up Brazill for No. 2 duties opposite Hilton.
Jan 6 - 8:34 AM

Da'Rick Rogers caught one pass for 46 yards in Indy's Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Rogers' catch was an impressive grab on a third-quarter jump ball. He drew only two targets, however, and was running as the Colts' No. 4 wideout. He won't be much of a daily-league option for the Divisional Round.
Jan 4 - 8:53 PM

Da'Rick Rogers caught two passes for 20 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Not seeing extensive playing time until late in his undrafted rookie year, Rogers wound up with a 14-192-3 stat line as a receiver, blowing up on the fantasy scene with a six-catch, 107-yard, two-score effort in Week 14 at Cincinnati. With a skill set similar to Brandon Marshall's, Rogers will be a player to follow closely on the national stage in January's playoffs.

Da'Rick Rogers caught four passes for 42 yards in Week 16 at Kansas City.

Rogers ran in two- and three-wide sets along with T.Y. Hilton and Griff Whalen. He saw six targets on the day. Rogers couldn't get loose deep, and neither could any of the other Indianapolis receivers in the win. He remains locked in as the No. 2 receiver for the Colts on the outside. Jacksonville travels to Indianapolis for the regular season finale next Sunday.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:28:00 PM

Da'Rick Rogers started and played 60-of-74 snaps in the Colts' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Unfortunately, Rogers had a drop and saw only six targets on a day where Andrew Luck needed only 180 passing yards to beat a Texans team that beat itself. Either way, Rogers has clearly bypassed Darrius Heyward-Bey as a starter in two-receiver sets opposite T.Y. Hilton. Rogers managed 23 yards on two catches against Houston, but maintains Hail Mary WR3 value in fantasy title week. The Colts head to Kansas City for Week 16.

Da'Rick Rogers caught two passes for 23 yards in Indianapolis' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Rogers drew only six targets in a game where the Colts took the air out of the ball early. The Texans simply weren't competing. Rogers almost made it all worth it for gambling fantasy owners in the second quarter, but was under-thrown on a potential 27-yard touchdown. The pass was picked off. It was a disastrous day for owners who took the WR3 plunge, but Rogers is locked in as the No. 2 receiver for an offense that's looked much more smooth the past two weeks. He'll be a high-reward WR4 for Week 16 against the Chiefs.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 05:58:00 PM

Da'Rick Rogers is expected to have an even bigger role Sunday with LaVon Brazill (foot) inactive.

Rogers already played on 41-of-60 snaps last week and went off for a 6/107/2 line. Now he's the clear-cut No. 2 wideout behind T.Y. Hilton and gets a plus matchup in the dome against the Texans. Rogers is a risk because he's so unproven, but his talent plus this opportunity gives him a ton of upside as a WR3 gamble.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 12:39:00 PM

Da'Rick Rogers played on 41-of-60 (68.3 percent) snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

At long last, the Colts identified their talent and utilized it. Darrius Heyward-Bey was demoted to 23 snaps while T.Y. Hilton led the way with 45 and LaVon Brazill chipped in with 42. Rogers is the man to watch here as the unique talent that went undrafted in April solely due to off-field concerns. His on-field ability was never in doubt and he proved it by busting out for a 6/107/2 line against Cincy. Rogers comes with risk because he's so unproven, but this usage confirms he'll at least be a WR4 with upside in a nice matchup in the dome against the Texans Week 15.

Da'Rick Rogers caught six passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 42-28, Week 14 loss to the Bengals.

Rogers was targeted a game-high nine times as he saw a ton of playing time in two- and three-wide sets with T.Y. Hilton and LaVon Brazill. The nine targets were the first nine of his career, in Rogers' second career game. Finally, in Week 14, the Colts avoided trotting Darrius Heyward-Bey and his butter fingers out there for starter snaps. Rogers has always been long on talent, but he went undrafted in April due to major character concerns. By all accounts, he's kept his head on straight since entering the league. Rogers should be owned across the board in dynasty as a rocked-up 6-foot-3, 206-pound receiver capable of breaking tackles and racking up YAC. His snaps should only increase over the final three weeks.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:21:00 PM

According to the Indy Star, "signs point toward more of Da'Rick Rogers and less of Darrius Heyward-Bey" going forward.

When asked who will be starting across from T.Y. Hilton this week, coach Chuck Pagano was non-committal. "We've got four guys on the 53-man roster right now at the wide receiver position and we've got to do a great job of playing to their strengths," he said. "We're going to need them all." The Colts have seen what Heyward-Bey can do and it isn't pretty. Rogers is a name to keep on watch lists as he could be forging ahead as soon as this week.
