2019 Fantasy Outlook
Forced into action almost out of necessity due to a variety of injuries and lack of depth at wide receiver, Rogers put together his best season as pro in 2018, amassing 53 receptions, 485 yards and two touchdowns, logging the second-most snaps of any Indy receiver save for T.Y. Hilton. Despite the amount of playing time and relatively acceptable counting stats, Rogers was largely ineffective considering the workload, boasting a measly 9.2 yards per reception out of the slot. By the end of the season, both Zach Pascal and Dontrelle Inman developed into more effective weapons, with Rogers merely acting as a safety net for quarterback Andrew Luck to the tune of an average target depth of 6.5 yards. The Colts made a point of improving their wide receiver corps this offseason, signing Panthers castoff Devin Funchess, while adding Parris Campbell in the second round of the draft. Campbell in particular could wind up pushing Rogers out of the No. 3 WR spot thanks in large part to his dynamic speed (4.31 40-yard dash), but a pair of late-round 2018 picks in the form of Daurice Fountain and Deon Cain also should be in contention for the role.

Needs to battle for slot job
WRIndianapolis Colts
April 29, 2019
Rogers faces serious competition for snaps after the Colts used a second-round pick on Parris Campbell, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Rogers caught 73.6 percent of his targets last season, but he managed just 9.2 yards per catch with a long gain of 34. The lack of explosiveness is notable even for a slot specialist, whereas Campbell can bring 4.31 speed to the same role after scoring 12 touchdowns his senior season at Ohio State. On the other hand, Rogers has a clear advantage in terms of experience and route-running polish, so it won't come as any surprise if he holds down the slot job for another year. Either way, the Indianapolis passing game will continue to run through T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and the tight ends.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The No. 2 receiver gig is up for grabs in Indy following Donte Moncrief's departure for Jacksonville. Rogers is considered one of the two leading candidates to seize the role, with the other coming in the form of offseason acquisition Ryan Grant, who set career highs in Washington last season with 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns. While rookie receivers Daurice Fountain (5th round) and Deon Cain (6th) could also make some noise, Rogers may have a leg up on all of them given his familiarity with the team. In 2017, Rogers won the No. 3 job out of training camp, but a hamstring injury limited him to just 11 games.
As an undrafted rookie last season, Rogers climbed the ranks and ended the season as the No. 4 option on the depth chart. The 23-year-old registered 19 receptions for 273 yards in 14 games and emerged as a trusted target for Andrew Luck. If the rapport of the two can continue to grow on the field, Rogers could emerge as a darkhorse fantasy producer in 2017.
