Colts WR Reggie Wayne feels like his old self


Colts WR Reggie Wayne feels like his old self

Perhaps "old" is the wrong word to use, because Reggie Wayne @Reggie_Wayne87's 35-year-old body must think it's still 25.
Wayne, entering his 15th season, is about nine months removed from tearing his ACL. Yet, he said Thursday that he feels no pain and hasn't experienced any setbacks. He's been running routes and "effortlessly snatching passes out of the air" in training camp, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. After watching Wayne's first full-squad practice last week, head coach Chuck Pagano called his performance "really incredible.
"But again, it probably doesn't shock anybody here. It certainly doesn't shock me. We all know his mindset, his work ethic and his determination, and how bad he wanted to get back."

Fantasy Analysis:

Wayne is only a WR4 following the acquisition of Hakeem Nicks, and you would expect T.Y. Hilton @TYHilton13 to improve in his third season. However, Wayne was on pace for 1,000 yards prior to his injury, and he still might be able to reach or at least come close to that mark if the Colts do the smart thing and decide to put the offense on Andrew Luck's shoulders more often. So, yeah, Wayne is only a WR4. But even at the age of 35 and coming off of a major knee injury, he's a quite good WR4.
