Rogers had two receptions for 39 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Houston. Rogers got ample playing time the past three games with Donte Moncrief out, but had just three receptions on 11 targets. His production would likely improve if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018, but it's not clear if Rogers will be given a shot a top-three receiver role.
Rogers had one reception for 19 yards on four targets in Saturday's loss at Baltimore. Rogers drew the start opposite T.Y. Hilton with Donte Moncrief sidelined with an ankle injury. However, that didn't translate to many more opportunities as quarterback Jacoby Brissett looked almost exclusively toward Hilton and Jack Doyle. Rogers could get a start again in Week 17 and has a better matchup at home against the Texans.
Rogers had two receptions for six yards on four targets in Sunday's loss at Buffalo. Rogers played 66 of the offense's 71 snaps as he got the second most playing time among receivers with Donte Moncrief out with an ankle injury. However, the increased playing time didn't get Rogers more receptions amid the blizzard conditions in Buffalo. He could have a more productive day in the passing game next week if Moncrief remains out.
Rogers is expected to pick up increased snaps during Sunday's game against the Bills with Donte Moncrief (ankle) ruled out for the contest, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. Rogers had already received four more offensive snaps than Moncrief in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars, so the former's playing time may not tick up too dramatically. Even so, the absence of Moncrief in the passing attack could prompt quarterback quarterback Jacoby Brissett to look Rogers' way more often, raising the receiver's fantasy ceiling a bit.
Rogers had four receptions for 35 yards on six targets in Sunday's 30-10 loss at Jacksonville. Rogers had more snaps on offense (54) than Donte Moncrief (50), but three of Rogers' targets came on the final drive when the game was all but over. Still, Rogers' playing time has been increasing the past three games, and he could get more targets as the team looks toward 2018.
