Heyward-Bey came to the Colts for a fresh start and to try and prove he wasn't a first round bust after being the number seven pick in the 2009 NFL draft. In the Colts' last game two weeks ago, Reggie Wayne went down with a season ending injury that will move DHB up in the pecking order. He was already playing on 75.2 percent of the snaps, but was seeing under five targets per game. Playing with stud quarterback Andrew Luck, Heyward-Bay will have no problem seeing his targets get up closer to the 7-10 range. DHB makes for a very solid start at wide receiver or flex.

Playing for the Vikings and being part of their offense hasn't been the best place to be. The Vikings are one and six and have already started three different quarterbacks this season. Who will be throwing the passes is anyone's guess, but the Vikings will be losing and will be throwing and one guy we know will be catching passes is Kyle Rudolph. While his stats aren't anything special, he does lead the Vikings in receptions (28) and is tied for the lead in TD receptions (two). This week Rudolph takes on a Cowboys defense that is giving up an NFL league high 315 passing yards per game. If you need a start at tight end this week, look no further than Kyle Rudolph.
