Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Chester Rogers signed his one-year, second-round tender for $3.095 million on Monday. Rogers was a restricted free agent. He caught a career-high 53 passes for 485 yards and two touchdowns in a full season last year and could be in the slot in 2019 between T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. The Colts offense is on the rise with a healthy Andrew Luck under center, so Rogers could improve on his numbers from a season ago if everything goes according to plan.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Chester Rogers caught all seven of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in a 28-27 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. While Rogers wouldn't normally see any form of fantasy relevant receiving volume, the departure of tight end Eric Ebron early in the contest opened the door. While his fantasy day would have been good heading into the fourth quarter, a one yard touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Luck to put the Colts ahead for good made it a great outing. If Ebron ends up unable to play in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans, Rogers could make for a WR3/4 option for fantasy owners in need.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (concussion), wide receiver Chester Rogers (groin) and tight end Erik Swoope (knee) are all active for Week 13 against the Jaguars. Mack was always expected to play after practicing this week. As the team's clear lead back, he'll be an RB2 this Sunday. Rogers last scored on Oct. 14 and hasn't been a big part of the offense in recent weeks. He should be avoided for starting lineups. Swoope will act as the backup to Eric Ebron with Jack Doyle on Injured Reserve and Mo Alie-Cox on the sidelines.
