I still got plenty of gas left Juan…

This offseason Reggie Wayne was rumored to be headed to wherever Peyton Manning landed. Well, he stayed at home to work with Andrew Luck. Not such a bad thing for fantasy owners. Wayne had 18 targets from the rookie last week, which was just a flat out ridiculous amount for any WR. This week I liked him going against the Vikings who have crushed by fantasy WRs over the past couple of seasons and he didn’t let me down.

Wayne now has 15/206/1 in his first 2 games and the ‘old man’ looks like he has been rejuvenated by the superstar rookie QB. Sounds a little like Steve Smith last season with Cameron Newton. I love what Wayne has done, but I can’t leave out Donnie Avery out of this post. The Ex-Ram has played great in place of Austin Collie with 12/148/1 in 2 games. Pretty solid work and this pass offense looks legit.

Kuharsky's notes on Colts-Vikings

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN says that he loved Luck's pocket presence and mobility during the Vikings matchup, among other notes.  What I liked: Luck is just fantastic on the move, whether it’s a relatively small step up or slide over or a big rollout or run away from pursuit. Obviously he cannot lose 22 yards trying to run out of a late sack and has to surrender at times. But...
