|Ryan Grant has never had a season with more than 50 targets or 600 yards, so why is he a meaningful fantasy wide receiver? Because the wide receiver corps for Indianapolis is barren and he represents the early favorite to be the WR2 on an Andrew Luck-led offense. He handled 65 targets in 2017 and converted that into 573 yards and 4 TDs on 45 receptions. Luck had 545 pass attempts in 2016 and he's averaged 585 attempts per 16 games. If Grant can earn a decent share of these targets, he could have value as a fill-in flex during bye weeks.
|Deon Cain making some noise|
Sixth-round expected to have early role

|Deon Cain has been the big star of training camp so far. Very fluid, fast, excellent hands ... Look for him early on to make a big impact. (Peter King on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Colts wide receiver situation opposite T.Y. Hilton is unsettled to say the least, although Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant should have a slight leg up over the rest of the field. Still, it would be a mistake to discount Cain, who has steadily been generating buzz all summer long. At 6-2 and 202 pounds, Cain brings more size to the table than his competition, making him a nice complement to Hilton.
