Colts sign WR Darrius Heyward-Bey

The Colts signed their Donnie Avery replacement on Monday. They agreed to terms with former Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey on a one-year deal that's worth as much as $3 million, a source told USA Today. Heyward-Bey spent four years with the Raiders and has yet to live up to his status as a first-round pick. He caught 41 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns last season.

Fantasy Analysis:

DHB and Avery are similar players in that they rely on their straight-line speed. It's a cheap deal, and I think Heyward-Bey is an upgrade compared to Avery. His fantasy stock certainly rises with Andrew Luck as his quarterback instead of whomever Oakland will put under center, but he won't be anything more than the Colts' No. 3 WR. Like Avery last year, Heyward-Bey could turn into a valuable bench or bye-week addition, but his ceiling doesn't go much higher.
