Reggie Wayne was held without a catch in his Patriots preseason debut.
Fantasy Impact: Reggie Wayne had zero catches and dropped his only target thrown his way. Wayne played with the Tom Brady grouping and played mostly at outside receiver. With LaFell and Edelman still sidelined Wayne is purely a depth move for the Patriots seen as a low risk high reward player. Edelman is expected back but LaFell may be put on the reserved PUP list so Wayne may see solid playing time during the 2015 season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Reggie Wayne's one-year contract with the Patriots is "worth up to nearly $3 million, including incentives." Rapoport added Wayne got "almost $500k up front." (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: There are quite a few incentives in Reggie Wayne's contract. It definitely looks like Wayne will be with the team for the whole season and the Patriots will be using him. If Brandon LaFell is not ready for the season Wayne could see quite a few targets to start off with. But also expect the Patriots to keep his work load down so he can stay healthy which will hurt his fantasy value.
