Andre Caldwell placed on the injured reserve list

The Detroit Lions have placed WR Andre Caldwell (hand) on the injured reserve list with a broken bone in his hand. Caldwell is expected to negotiate an injury settlement with the club and could return in 2016 according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Caldwell's outlook for the 2016 season on the Detroit Lions remains grim. The eight-year veteran was placed on IR with a broken hand which opens up the door for Andre Roberts and Jeremy Kerley to compete for a larger role on Detroit's questionable receiving corps in the upcoming campaign.

Andre Caldwell grabs first touchdown of the year

Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders have dominated the wide receiver position for the Broncos but on Sunday night it was Andre Caldwell who left his mark on the game. Caldwell caught a four-yard go-ahead touchdown late in Sunday's game to give the Broncos a three point lead with only a minute left in the game. Denver would pull out a 30-24 victory in overtime against the Patriots. Caldwell finished the game with only two catches for eight yards and a score.

Fantasy Impact

It was clear to see that Caldwell and Osweiler have some developed chemistry from practice as Caldwell's touchdown was perfectly executed. Still, Caldwell has been irrelevant all year and that isn't likely to change in the future. There is no need to play Caldwell in any fantasy or daily league as he is a long way from having a defined role in this offense.

Andre Caldwell has touchdown called back

Andre Caldwell nearly had his first touchdown of the season Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers. Caldwell was wide open and caught a 5-yard touchdown pass but was flagged for offensive pass interference on the play. He finished with 24 yards off one catch in the game. The Broncos defeated the Packers 29-10.

Fantasy Impact

The role of the third wide receiver has still yet to be claimed from the receivers behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Caldwell hasn't done much all year but inched closer to being relevant Sunday night. He will only become fantasy relevant if something happens to Thomas or Sanders.

Andre Caldwell targeted only once in win

Andre Caldwell was only targeted once Sunday, catching a pass for one yard against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Entering the season Caldwell's role in the offense was expected to increase. Last year he was only targeted 15 times. If Week 1 is any indication it could be more of the same in 2015.

Caldwell's role to increase

In light of Wes Welker's four game suspension, Andre Caldwell will fill the Broncos' void at WR. Emmanuel Sanders figures to move inside to the slot, while Caldwell assumes the outside WR role across from Demaryius Thomas.

Fantasy Impact

Due to Caldwell's tenure with the Broncos, he's earned the trust of the coaches and more importantly, Peyton Manning. He's the near term solution to Welker's four game absence. Caldwell is worth a roster stash in deeper leagues, especially if you have an immediate plug and play need. However, as the season progresses, we expect Cody Latimer's talent to overtake Caldwell as the next man up.
