Da'Rick Rogers came out of nowhere to become the waiver wire fantasy pickup of the week.
The undrafted rookie wide receiver out of Tennessee Tech exploded for six receptions, 107 yards and two touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Andrew Luck targeted him nine times on the afternoon, three more than any other Indianapolis Colts receiver besides Coby Fleener, who also finished with nine.
Rogers hadn’t caught a pass prior to Week 14. Given that, he’s a risky start going forward. However, he’s a must-add simply on potential alone.
Indianapolis plays the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars to finish out the season. The 2-11 Texans offer opponents plenty of scoring opportunities, and the Chiefs and Jaguars are both in the bottom 12 in the league in passing yards allowed.
Rogers is owned in 0 percent of Yahoo! Sports leagues. That number will skyrocket—owners should peg him as their No. 1 waiver priority.
