WR LaVon Brazill - Free Agent
|5-10, 192||Born: 3-15-1989||College: Ohio||Drafted: Round 6, pick 206 (2012)|
2013 Week 12 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
Tied for fourth on the team in catches in this one, Brazill was a benefit of the pass-only scheme the Colts had to adopt once they got down multiple scores. There wasn't anything special on his catches, but in a game where there wasn't much else, Brazill deserves to get his mention in this one.
2013 Week 13 vs TEN (8 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
The leading targeted receiver in this game, Brazill was finding himself on the nice end of a few well thrown balls by Luck and it was Brazill who was the receiver Luck threw his lone deep ball attempt to (granted it was incomplete); and with DHB getting booed late in the third quarter, it's just another sign of the Colts really needing someone to help out Hilton in the receiving game- if this game shows any indication, then they are ready to try and make Brazill that guy.
2013 Week 14 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 53 / 2 rec)
Always on the roster, but never given a true shot, Brazill made the most of his 4 targets in this one, catching 3 of them and turning 2 into TDs. His first one was on a basic over the middle pass where he didn't give up, at all, and the Bengals defenders didn't apparently want to bring him down as he broke easily 5/6 tackles en route to his 19 yard score; the second one was a basic go-route where he torched Terence Newman and Luck just lobbed it to the endzone and Brazill made it look easy. In a game where they where in full-blown passing mode, Brazill finally got looks and he definitely made an impact with them- one can only hope that as the season goes on, that trend continues.
2013 Week 18 vs KC (6 / 4 / 54 / 0 rec)
With Hilton getting all the notoriety as the Colts receiver in this one, Brazill held his own when he was called upon; three of his four catches went for a first down and his long of 30 extended one of the Colts final TD drives. As their kick returner he didn't do anything, which isn't anything different from whomevers been back there anyways for Indy this season. While TY was the clear cut top WR for the Colts here, Brazill carved himself a nice little role in this one.
2013 Week 19 vs NE (7 / 2 / 73 / 2 rec)
Caught a meager two balls in this one- however with them both going for the lone Colts touchdowns, there wasn't any two bigger catches for Indy. The first TD catch was down the sideline and couldn't have been placed any better by Luck, as Brazill tight roped down the sidelines final few yards; and the second came later on in the third and again was the result of a greatly-placed Luck pass. In a season where Indy needed anyone to step up at the receiver position, Brazill did what he could and you would think he's part of this offense come next season.
2012 Week 1 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Brazill was mostly involved on kick returns and passing downs where he was the #4 WR. He had just one catch, a short dump off where he was able to push up field for a quick 10 yard gain. His highlight play though was the second return of the third quarter, where Brazil fumbled the ball and the Bears recovered it on the Indianapolis 12 yard line.
2012 Week 6 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Brazill's sole reception occurred at the end of the third quarter. The Colts' utilized Brazill's speed by throwing him a quick wide receiver screen. Brazill was the beneficiary of a Reggie Wayne block, cutting up the right sideline for a 14 yard gain.
2012 Week 7 vs CLE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Brazill saw limited involvement in the offense with just a single, uncatchable target. Against man coverage, Brazill got separation on a go route, but Luck's throw was out-of-bounds on the third down. Brazill remains an intriguing option in deep leagues and keeper formats as the Colts passing game remains wide open outside of Reggie Wayne.
2012 Week 9 vs MIA (5 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
The fleet-of-foot receiver had five targets from Luck against the Dolphins, but could only rein in two of them for twenty-five receiving yards. Brazill saw an uptick in his snap count with the in-game injury to Donnie Avery, a workload increase that is likely to continue if Avery misses any time. Brazill should be line for better days, given his speed to burn and ability to get separation from coverage.
2012 Week 11 vs NE (4 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)
Brazill made an excellent 25-yard reception against Aqib Talib down the right sideline. Talib was in good position, but Brazil adjusted to the ball to high point a perfectly thrown pass. On third and five, Brazill caught a pass over the middle that should have been stopped short of a first down. Brazill used his speed however to accelerate away from defenders and gain the sideline for a big gain of 21 yards. Brazill appeared to have an opportunity for a big touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, but he couldn't extend to make the reception on a well thrown pass from his quarterback.
2012 Week 12 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Brazill only received one target on Sunday, picking up 11 yards, but what an important catch it was. After a seven yard loss on a Ballard run, it was Brazill's catch that put the Colts in a much more manageable 3rd and six on the offense's lone TD drive.
2012 Week 16 vs KC (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Brazill and Luck had plenty of opportunities to make plays, but both receiver and quarterback appeared to be on different pages.
2012 Week 18 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
As the no.4 receiver, Brazill saw limited snaps and just two targets against Baltimore. On his first chance in the passing game, Andrew Luck found Brazill in a tight passing window over the middle to convert a third down. Later in the game, Brazill was targeted deep down the field against one-on-one coverage. The throw was too long for Brazill, who could not make a play on the pass.
