WR Reggie Wayne getting used to Colts' new offense; QB Andrew Luck looking for young WRs to step up

The Colts are installing their third different offense in three years. Everyone has been trying to learn offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton's system, but you will excuse Reggie Wayne @Reggie_Wayne87 if he's a bit behind. After spending most of the offseason training in Miami, he showed up to Colts camp on Wednesday and admitted that he is still trying to get up to speed with what's being called.
"I'm still trying to figure it out," Wayne said of Hamilton's West Coast-style system. "I'm still doing some of the things that I did last year. I'm still trying to figure some things out. But hopefully I can continue to build on what I did last year and show [the media] that it's not time for me to hang it up yet."
While Wayne continues to study, quarterback Andrew Luck is calling upon his younger wideouts, specifically T.Y. Hilton and LaVon Brazill @BrazillLaVon, to continue to improve.
"They're going to be a big, big part of this offense," Luck said. "... For us to be productive, we're going to have to have every man on the offensive side of the ball contribute."

Fantasy Analysis:

I'm a big fan of Luck this year. Yes, this new system won't present as many down-the-field opportunities for Luck, but I think he and Wayne will thrive again. T.Y. Hilton should see his numbers increase with his snap count, and both of the Colts' sophomore-year tight ends, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, should be involved consistently. Luck has a lot of quality weapons at his disposal, and I think he will take full advantage. He's in the QB1 class.
