The Colts have been cautious with Wayne, working him back slowly from last season's ACL tear. He has looked healthy throughout camp and was seen practicing with the first team on Tuesday. (Source: Colts.com)
Fantasy Impact: While there shouldn't be any concerns with Wayne's productivity if healthy, it would be nice to see him in action prior to the beginning of the season. Wayne figures to be a large part of the passing game but with the return of TE Dwayne Allen and the addition of WR Hakeem Nicks he may see a drop in targets. He currently has an ADP in the seventh round which may be a bit of a reach considering the plethora of receiving options.

Fantasy Impact: This shouldn't come as a surprise as the 35 year old Wayne is easing himself back into action after tearing his ACL at the midpoint of last season. The future Hall of Famer holds some value in the later rounds of drafts because of his rapport with Luck along with the Colts expected to implement a less conservative offensive approach.

Head Coach Chuck Pagano mentioned that Reggie Wayne will not play during the Colts preseason opener against the Jets. Pagano said Wayne will see action at some point during the preseason, just not yet. (Source: Jason Mullins)
Fantasy Impact: Wayne is still recovering from a season injuring ACL tear last year. While he has looked healthy in practice thus far, he has yet to take a hard hit. Assuming he makes it through the preseason unscathed, Wayne should produce at WR2 level.

Wayne was impressive in the early part of last night's practice, hauling in 7 of Andrew Luck's first 10 completions. He was the main receiving threat with T.Y. Hilton sitting out with a jammed finger. (Source: Colts.com
Fantasy Impact: Wayne was able to adjust to a couple of passes that were off-target which is a good sign for a player coming off of a season ending ACL injury. Wayne may not play much in pre-season games but it is promising to see the progress he has made to this point. He continues to be Luck's security blanket as the first option when they need to move the chains. I wouldn't expect the emergence of the other options within the receiving corps to impact Wayne's touches too much. Keep in mind, prior to injury last season Wayne was on track for over 1100 receiving yards. The return of Dwayne Allen and the signing of Hakeem Nicks may reduce that figure slightly, although the biggest impact will likely be red-zone targets.

Fantasy Impact: Wayne is a favorite target of Andrew Luck, especially when it comes to moving the chains. At 35, there were questions as to how long Wayne would take to recover from last season's injury. So far, he has quieted those concerns.

Like teammate Vick Ballard, Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is recovering from a torn ACL last season and has been cleared for training camp, per Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.
Before last year's injury, Wayne had been extremely durable as he played all 16 games every year from 2002 to 2012.
Turning 36 years old in November and returning from a significant injury, the odds are stack...
