2019 Fantasy Outlook
Forced into action almost out of necessity due to a variety of injuries and lack of depth at wide receiver, Rogers put together his best season as pro in 2018, amassing 53 receptions, 485 yards and two touchdowns, logging the second-most snaps of any Indy receiver save for T.Y. Hilton. Despite the amount of playing time and relatively acceptable counting stats, Rogers was largely ineffective considering the workload, boasting a measly 9.2 yards per reception out of the slot. By the end of the season, both Zach Pascal and Dontrelle Inman developed into more effective weapons, with Rogers merely acting as a safety net for quarterback Andrew Luck to the tune of an average target depth of 6.5 yards. The Colts made a point of improving their wide receiver corps this offseason, signing Panthers castoff Devin Funchess and adding Parris Campbell in the second round of the draft. Campbell in particular could wind up pushing Rogers out of the No. 3 WR spot, thanks in large part to his dynamic speed (4.31 40-yard dash). In any case, the role lost much of its appeal after Luck announced his retirement in late August. Read Past Outlooks

Knee
December 2, 2019
The Colts intend to place Rogers (knee) on injured reserve, spelling an end to his season, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
ANALYSIS
Indianapolis may not announce a corresponding roster move for another day or two, but Rogers' impending shutdown implies the follow-up tests he underwent Monday revealed that he fractured his knee in the Week 13 loss to the Titans. Rogers only contributed 16 receptions for 179 yards and two touchdowns across 28 targets in 12 games this season, but his absence nonetheless hurts with the Colts already having lost several other pass-catching options to injury. Fortunately for Indianapolis, the potential returns of receivers T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) as soon as Week 14 could help soften the loss of Rogers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The No. 2 receiver gig is up for grabs in Indy following Donte Moncrief's departure for Jacksonville. Rogers is considered one of the two leading candidates to seize the role, with the other coming in the form of offseason acquisition Ryan Grant, who set career highs in Washington last season with 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns. While rookie receivers Daurice Fountain (5th round) and Deon Cain (6th) could also make some noise, Rogers may have a leg up on all of them given his familiarity with the team. In 2017, Rogers won the No. 3 job out of training camp, but a hamstring injury limited him to just 11 games.
As an undrafted rookie last season, Rogers climbed the ranks and ended the season as the No. 4 option on the depth chart. The 23-year-old registered 19 receptions for 273 yards in 14 games and emerged as a trusted target for Andrew Luck. If the rapport of the two can continue to grow on the field, Rogers could emerge as a darkhorse fantasy producer in 2017.
