Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey's 1-year contract only includes $65,000 guaranteed via a signing bonus, with a base salary of $730,000.
Huddle Up: In other words, DHB has a lot to prove after his deeply disappointing 29-309-1 1-year stop in Indy last season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed free-agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (Colts) to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Steelers add another speed receiver to their mix. DHB's primary competition will be second-year wideout Markus Wheaton, though Heyward-Bey's inconsistent hands have him as the lower seed in that battle.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) will miss around a week because of his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: This has zero impact on the Colts' offense as DHB has been a huge disappointment and has fallen behind young Indy WRs T.Y. Hilton, LaVon Brazill, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Wild Card playoff game and is considered doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Heyward-Bey was already losing playing time to Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill, so he may not even be missed.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: It will be far from a huge loss if DHB can't go this week as he failed to record a reception in Indy's final 3 games and has been pushed to the background with the emergence of young WRs Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (head) was being evaluated for a concussion after the team's Week 9 game, but head coach Chuck Pagano said Heyward-Bey was cleared.
Huddle Up: He didn't do too much in the game while healthy, though he did draw a pass interference call. He should be the second starter for the foreseeable future, so a few nice games are in store. But don't expect much from him on a weekly basis.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is expected to step up and produce, as he is technically the team's No. 1 wide receiver following the season-ending injury to WR Reggie Wayne (knee).
Huddle Up: Any way you slice it, there's suddenly a lot of pressure on DHB, who has 18 catches on 35 targets for 190 yards and a TD this season. His best game has been a 5-catch, 59-yard effort against the 49ers in Week 3, and that's going to be the minimum expected of the wideout if he's truly going to step up as Andrew Luck's No. 1 WR.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 18, or Thursday, Sept. 19. He underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder, but it did not show any problems.
Huddle Up: There isn't much fantasy value here, but having him on the field takes pressure off Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Sunday, Sept. 15, that WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) went down hard on his shoulder in the Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins, forcing him from the game. Heyward-Bey is scheduled for an MRI.
Huddle Up: Hopefully the injury isn'g serious for DHB, but this is good for T.Y. Hilton, who had a big game against the Dolphins. Granted, Hilton didn't do much in the second half after Heyward-Bey left the game, but more playing time means more opportunities to score fantasy points for the explosive Hilton.

The Indianapolis Colts have kept WR Darrius Heyward-Bey as a starter over speedy WR T.Y. Hilton, and the teams cites Heyward-Bey's blocking skills in the run game as a major factor.
Huddle Up: With Pep Hamilton calling the shots, Indy may not run as many three-receiver sets as they did last year under Bruce Arians. And if Hilton isn't a starter, he may not see the field as much as would be necessary to live up to his current fantasy ADP.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee) will miss time because of a sprained medial collateral ligament.
Huddle Up: This pretty much seals the deal for T.Y. Hilton to be the No. 2 receiver for Andrew Luck and the Colts. Hilton was going to be an integral part of the offense regardless, but more snaps mean more opportunities to score fantasy points for Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was diagnosed with a sprained left knee Sunday, August 4, and it's unclear how much time he might miss. The injury occurred during the afternoon session at Indianapolis' training camp. Heyward-Bey was then taken to the training tent at Anderson University and watched the rest of practice with the knee wrapped in ice.
Huddle Up: Heyward-Bey had been working as the starter opposite Reggie Wayne; if he's out for any significant length of time, it opens the door for TY Hilton to see more of the field.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is battling WR Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 2 receiver spot in training camp. Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has used Hilton all over the field, lining up outside on the left and right, and also in the slot. Hilton is also expected to serve as the team's primary punt returner.
Huddle Up: This is a great camp battle, but it might give you heartburn if you already own T.Y. Hilton. It looks like the Colts will be utilizing him plenty regardless if he is the "No. 2" receiver, but Heyward-Bey could steal snaps if he wins the job.

The Indianapolis Colts believe WR Darrius Heyward-Bey could be an explosive playmaker this season that could get behind the defense. Heyward-Bey is expected to receive more opportunities than he received when he was with the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: After a career season in 2011 (64-975-4), DHB's numbers slipped to 41-606-5 this past season, but playing with one of the game's top young QBs in Andrew Luck and having talented WRs Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton to help divert defensive attention should net a statistical uptick for Heyward-Bey.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey did not participate in practice Wednesday, May 29, because of a sore hamstring. The injury is believed to be minor.
Huddle Up: Hamstring injuries can linger, but it's far too early to get worked up over DHB missing a workout or two. If he's still on the sidelines in August, then you can nudge him from the fringe to off your fantasy radar.
