Reggie Wayne released from Patriots

Reggie Wayne survived just two weeks on the New England Patriots' roster. The former Indianapolis Colts star asked for and was granted his release Saturday

Fantasy Impact

The fact that Reggie Wayne asked for his release probably means he realizes that he's not up to the task of playing another season. Expect Wayne to announce his retirement and do it as a Colt. Fantasy owners who picked him up thinking he would be a big part of the Patriots offense can drop him.

Reggie Wayne plays in his first preseason game for the Patriots

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.

Reggie Wayne contract details released

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."

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.

Patriots sign Reggie Wayne

The New England Patriots have reached a one-year agreement with free agent WR Reggie Wayne.

Fantasy Impact

This is certainly an intriguing signing. The Packers were reportedly also expressing interest after Jordy Nelson's season-ending injury. Wayne becomes fantasy-relevant, and the signing will impact Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell to some degree.

Reggie Wayne has garnered interest across the league

While the Broncos' interest in Reggie Wayne has waned, the Packers, Patriots, Ravens and Texans are all interested in his services.

Fantasy Impact

Wayne just wants one more year in the league, and it seems like these four teams are all willing to give him a shot. He injured his triceps in February, but all of his 14 seasons have come with the Colts. He'll likely have more value as a mentor to young receivers than he would playing regularly on the field.
