With Reggie Wayne lost for the season, Heyward-Bey will be more involved in the Colts passing game. Indianapolis appears hell-bent on running the ball, but with Andrew Luck at the helm expect the run-pass ratio to stay close to 50-50. That can only mean more targets for the speedy Heyward-Bey who saw a season-high seven passes thrown his way Sunday night. He also scored his first touchdown of the year and with his speed could be a sneaky play in the coming weeks.

The rookie caught his first touchdown of the season Sunday. He's still splitting time with Jermaine Gresham, but Eifert is averaging a robust 12.3 yards per catch and has the higher ceiling going forward. He's been consistently targeted and appears close to breaking out in a Bengals offense that has shown some improvement in recent weeks. Cincinnati also has upcoming games against Miami and Baltimore who rank 2nd and 11th respectively in points allowed to tight ends.
