Aiken said he was told that there would be open competition for spots at wide receiver, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

T.Y Hilton and Donte Moncrief are locked in at the top, but with 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett shaping up as a disappointment, the rest of the Indianapolis wideout depth chart should be up for grabs. Aiken had to settle for a one-year deal in the wake of a disappointing 2016 season, but he did catch 75 passes for 944 yards in 2015 while serving as Baltimore's No. 1 receiver for much of the year. The Andrew Luck-led Colts could give the 27-year-old a real shot to get his career back on track, as Moncrief's injury history and Dorsett's poor performance leave the team without reliable pass-catching options behind Hilton.

Aiken signed a contract with the Colts on Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken officially inked his new deal with the Colts on Tuesday afternoon, giving Andrew Luck another weapon to utilize on offense. The 27-year-old had a breakout season in 2015, recording 75 receptions for 944 yards and five touchdowns with the Ravens. He figures to serve as the Colts' No. 4 wideout on the depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett.

Aiken is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Colts, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken visited the Colts on Friday and also drew interest from Seattle, with his ability to contribute on special teams likely piquing the interest of a couple of franchises that already have solid weapons out wide. The 2011 UDFA bounced around the league while mostly playing special teams until 2015, when he caught 75 passes for 944 yards after injuries pushed him to the top of Baltimore's depth chart. Aiken only caught 29 balls for a much healthier Ravens team last season, mostly serving as the No. 4 wide receiver. He's likely ticketed for a similar role in Indianapolis, though it's conceivable he could challenge disappointing 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett for the No. 3 spot. Aiken is expected to sign a contract at some point Tuesday.

Aiken, an unrestricted free agent, is visiting with the Colts on Friday, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

A 2011 undrafted free agent, Aiken hung around the league due to his contributions on special teams, eventually breaking through as the leading receiver (944 yards) for an injury-ravaged 2015 Ravens squad. He followed the breakout with a forgettable 2016 campaign in a much healthier offense, catching 29 of 50 targets for 328 yards and a touchdown. Aiken is also getting a look from the Seahawks, but regardless of where he ultimately lands, he'll likely be looking at a role as a depth receiver and special teams contributor.

Aiken finished the 2016 season with 29 catches on 50 targets, racking up 328 yards (11.3 YPR) and one touchdown in the process.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken entered the year as a trendy sleeper candidate following a strong 2015 campaign when he produced 75 receptions for 944 yards and five touchdowns. However, his high production in 2015 was at least partially a function of the Ravens' serious attrition at wide receiver with both Steve Smith Sr. and Breshad Perriman suffering season-ending injuries at different points of the year. The Ravens had a full complement of receivers this year with Smith and Perriman both healthy and the addition of Mike Wallace. With that, Aiken got lost in the shuffle and saw his target and snap counts plummet. Even with Smith officially retired, it appears unlikely the impending unrestricted free agent, Aiken, will be back in Baltimore in 2017. Depending on where he lands, Aiken has shown that he can be a competent No.2 or No.3 in an NFL offense when given the opportunity.

Aiken was held without a catch on two targets in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken was entrenched in a minor role in the offense again Sunday as he saw just two targets on the 33 offensive snaps he played. Although Aiken's snap count has remained reasonably consistent over the second half of the season, even with Breshad Perriman's ascension, his target volume has taken a significant dip. Aside from a four-game stretch in October in which he saw just under 5.0 targets per game, Aiken has averaged just 2.54 targets per game in his 11 other outings. He'll face the Bengals on the road in Sunday's season finale.

Aiken caught both of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was lightly used Sunday with just two targets, Aiken made the most of his opportunities Sunday as he reeled in his first touchdown of the season. His five-yard touchdown grab marked just his third target inside the red zone this season and his second target inside the 10 yard line. Aiken does appear to be locked in as Baltimore's No.3 receiver over Breshad Perriman, but his low target volume coupled with his lack of explosiveness puts a definite cap on his upside. Furthermore, Baltimore tends to run the ball in the red zone or look towards the likes of Steve Smith or Mike Wallace, which limits Aiken's scoring chances.

Aiken caught one of four targets for 10 yards in Monday's loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Monday was yet another quiet outing for Aiken as he only saw four of quarterback Joe Flacco's 52 pass attempts thrown his way. He was only able to corral one of those targets, which went for a 10-yard pickup to give the Ravens a fresh set of downs. He's up to 25 catches on the season and he's on pace to play half as many snaps as he saw all of last season, making him a non-entity in most formats.

Aiken caught all three of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

A thigh injury had Aiken listed on the injury report leading into Sunday, but he was able to play through it and he caught everything thrown his way. Unfortunately, Aiken was targeted on just three of Baltimore's 50 passing plays while the likes of Dennis Pitta, Mike Wallace, and Steve Smith all saw seven or more targets. In fact, Aiken has only seen five or more targets just once in the five games the Ravens have played since their bye week. Aiken and the Ravens will head up to Foxborough for a Monday night clash with the Patriots in Week 14.

Aiken (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Although Aiken will be active, the wideout has seen just 13 combined targets over four games since the bye week, and is continuing to lose snaps to Breshad Perriman on the outside. Having been held out of the endzone all season and never seeing more than six targets in a single game, Aiken doesn't offer much fantasy upside in Week 13.
