Da'Rick Rogers, Griff Whalen benefit from LaVon Brazill's ban
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With LaVon Brazill suspended for at least a year, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen have the inside track on the Colts' final two receiver spots, reports ESPN.com. Rogers and Whalen should make the team behind Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and rookie Donte Moncrief.

Griff Whalen becoming important target for Andrew Luck
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts receiver Griff Whalen, who spent time this year on the practice squad, has become one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets. Whalen has been targeted 20 times over the last three games, catching 15 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns. 

According to ESPN.com, Whalen has a built-in advantage because he played with Luck in Stanford. Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton was their offensive coordinator at Stanford, "and he’s using the same passing plays he used while coaching them in college," the report said.

Hamilton told the website that "the quarterback-receiver dynamic is all about trust and the quarterback has to trust that the receiver is going to get to the spot and or beat man coverage."

The Colts host the Chiefs in a playoff game Saturday.

Da'Rick Rodgers caught two passes for 20 yards. Stanley Havili also caught two balls, but had 18 yards. Weslye Saunders had 18 yards, but caught one ball. LaVon Brazill caught one bal for 11 yards.

Griff Whalen leads Colts in receiving yards
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

It was less than a month ago when the Colts released Griff Whalen to make room at another position. He's since re-established himself as more than just a part-time receiver. Whalen worked often at Kansas City in Week 16, leading the team with seven catches on eight targets for 80 yards.

Whalen was used mainly in the slot, running lots of curl, crossing and out routes.

"He's a guy that is a tireless worker; he is accountable," coach Chuck Pagano said. "There's obviously a trust factor with the quarterback, going back to their college days. He's one of those guys we've had up, back down, then back up again; he works at his craft. He practices extremely hard, probably harder than he plays the game. It's not a surprise to see Griff making the plays that he makes because we see it all the time in practice. He did a phenomenal job for the second week in a row, he got first downs for us, made some clutch catches, made guys miss in the open field, got yards after contact, so he did a great job."

It's a dimension the Colts offense could continue to use not just next week against the Jaguars in Week 17 but also in the playoffs.

Griff Whalen makes impact in return
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts wide receiver Griff Whalen, back on the active roster after being waived in mid-November, was a surprise contributor Week 15 against the Texans. Working out of the slot, he was targeted five times, catching four passes for 45 yards, second-most on the team. He also scored his first career touchdown on a 14-yard strike from quarterback Andrew Luck in the first quarter.

Whalen was filling in for LaVon Brazill, who was out with a bruised right foot after making an impact of his own with two touchdown catches last week. He'll look to remain involved Week 16 at Kansas City.
