(Collie and Garcon have filled in admirably.)

While it may still end up being worth the wait , all signs are pointing towards dropping Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez .

He hasn't played a single down since going down in Week One and is now seeking a second opinion on his injured right knee.

The injury was originally suspected to be a sprain, but reports are now saying that Gonzalez has been rehabbing a slightly torn PCL for the past nine weeks, and he is now seeking a second opinion through Dr. James Andrews.


Fantasy Perspective

Keep Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie handy (mainly Collie), and at least start contemplating what life would be like with mini-Gonzo sitting among the other inept receivers on your waiver wire.

If there are any gems left over, this may be the time to cut ties with Gonzalez and take a chance. Receivers such as Jeremy Maclin, Michael Crabtree, and possibly even the newly-signed Chief, Chris Chambers, could be worth the risk.
