Wayne: Colts' Alec Pierce' 'time will come'

Indianapolis Colts receivers coach Reggie Wayne expressed confidence in second-year receiver Alec Pierce, stating that Pierce's "time will come."

What It Means:

Wayne added that he was not concerned about the former second-round pick and that Pierce is "confident in his ability." Rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson explained that the team did have deep shots dialed up for Pierce during their Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that their protections schemes fell apart before those routes could develop. Pierce is an athletic receiver with big-play upside, but his good games may be too unpredictable for fantasy managers' likings with the Colts this season.

Pierce caught 1 of his 3 targets for 5 yards in Week 1, resulting in a single fantasy point for his efforts. Things could look a little better against the Houston Texans in Week 2, though, and numberFire's models project him for 2.6 catches for 34.6 yards and 0.2 touchdowns for 5.8 fantasy points. He has a $5,100 salary on FanDuel.
