Parris Campbell Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

Colts WRs Michael Pittman (ankle) and Parris Campbell (abdomen) are questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Both guys were added to the injury report and limited in Friday's practice. Campbell wasn't a fantasy option anyway after running a route on just 65% of pass plays in the opener. Pittman is also better off on fantasy benches this week at less than 100% and in a tough matchup.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (Achilles) graduated to a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll play in Sunday's opener vs. the Seahawks. The Achilles issue is worth monitoring, though.

Colts WR Parris Campbell was limited in Wednesday's practice with what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls a "lingering" Achilles issue. It's reportedly not something that will keep Campbell out of Sunday's opener vs. the Seahawks, but it's certainly a situation to keep tabs on.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is expected back before mid-season but will “probably” miss more than 3 games, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Hilton, of course, is coming off surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. We’ll see about further updates on his exact return. His absence probably helps the outlooks for WRs Paris Campbell and Zach Pascal most.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had surgery this week to alleviate his disc issue, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. The team has placed the veteran wideout on IR, but GM Chris Ballard reportedly said they expect Hilton back "sooner than later." The IR stint means Hilton will miss at least 3 games, but it sounds like he might not be out much longer than that. Expect Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal to work as the top 3 WRs while Hilton is gone.

Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports that WR T.Y. Hilton is expected to miss "multiple weeks" with an injury he initially suffered in practice last Wednesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he's being evaluated for an "upper back/neck injury." We'll see about the specific diagnosis and return timeline. Hilton already didn't sit high in the rankings, so he's not worth much attention in typical fantasy football drafts. Hilton's absence will help the target outlooks for WRs Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Colts QB Carson Wentz (foot) is "trending" toward being ready for the start of the season. That jibes with recent positive reports on Wentz's recovery from August 2 surgery. We're still 32 days away from the Colts' season opener, so we'll continue to monitor Wentz's progress. Mortensen adds that G Quenton Nelson (foot) is also on track to be ready for Week 1. Excellent news for the entire Colts offense.

Colts QB Carson Wentz will undergo foot surgery and is expected to be out 5-12 weeks, HC Frank Reich announced Monday. Wentz's injury reportedly dates back to high school, but a broken bone recently came loose and is causing pain. The surgery will remove that piece of bone. The timeline is wide-ranging and would have Wentz back anywhere between early September and late October. That means Wentz has an outside chance to be ready for Week 1 -- or could be out for about half the season. We'll be on the lookout for updates on his surgery and rehab. But at this point, Wentz isn't worth drafting in lineup-setting leagues and should be considered just a QB3 in best ball. His situation also adds risk to Indianapolis' skill-position players, namely RB Jonathan Taylor and WRs Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell.

Update: Reich added that he expects to have a better idea of Wentz's return date in about 2-3 weeks.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has been limited to 9 games over his first 2 NFL seasons due to a plethora of injuries. But, according to The Athletic's Zak Keefer, the team still believes he'll "become a vital player in their offense." The Colts made Campbell the 59th overall pick of the 2019 draft after he caught an Ohio State-record 90 balls as a senior and then blazed a 4.31-second 40-yard dash at the Combine. Campbell has flashed in those 9 games he's played so far, catching 5+ balls 3 times and also carrying 6 times for 50 yards. "If Campbell exits camp without any setbacks, he’ll have a big role in 2021," Keefer adds. Campbell remains super cheap in drafts, with an ADP sitting outside the first 12 rounds.

Colts WR Parris Campbell said he's been cleared after last September's knee injury and is back to 100%, per The Athletic's Stephen Holder. The Week 2 sprained MCL and PCL cost Campbell the rest of the 2020 season -- after he missed 9 games with a multitude of injuries during his 2019 rookie campaign. So we just haven't seen much of this guy on an NFL field yet. Campbell does have 3 games of 5+ catches among his 9 outings, so there's certainly some sleeper appeal here. We'll see how the summer goes for him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a PCL injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings and will be out "indefinitely." That sounds like it'll land Campbell on IR for some amount of time. That'll elevate the playing time for WR Zach Pascal, who jumped from 62% snap share in Week 1 to 81% in Week 2. It could also increase the opportunities for RB Nyheim Hines and the TEs in the short-to-intermediate range. Campbell looks droppable in fantasy football leagues of little-to-moderate depth.

Update: Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports that a source says it's actually an MCL injury for Campbell and that there's a "low percentage" chance that he returns this season. Take Campbell out of your 2020 plans for now.

Further update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Campbell sprained both the MCL and PCL, adding: "No clear timetable yet, but it'll be a while."

Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a left knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings. He was in obvious pain and had to be carted off. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Colts WRs Michael Pittman (toe) and Zach Pascal (ankle) are questionable for this weekend’s game against the Vikings. Pittman was limited in practice all week, while Pascal got in a full practice on Friday. Neither guy is a fantasy option, but their absences would mean more targets for WRs T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is a "full go" for Week 1, according to Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star. That should return Campbell to a top-3 WR spot for an Indy offense that has dealt with injuries to its top 2 TEs during camp. Campbell carries plenty of upside into the 2020 season at a late-round price.

Colts WR Parris Campbell is in the concussion protocol after being involved in a minor car accident, according to insider Kevin Bowen. It's Campbell's 1st documented concussion. We'll see when he's cleared to get back on the field. Campbell had been off to a nice start in camp and is line to open the season as 1 of the Colts' top 3 WRs.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has gotten off to a good start in camp. "Yeah, he looks strong, fast, smart, explosive, good hands, understands the offense, consistent," HC Frank Reich said. "I mean, it's early but that's what we are looking for from him. Now we just need that to continue to build." Andrew Walker of the team's official site notes that Campbell has been running primarily out of the slot and has been a favorite target of QB Philip Rivers so far. Campbell's rookie season was ruined by injuries, but it looks like he's in line to play a significant role in Indy's passing game this year.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has been placed on the IR after breaking his foot in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It ends a rookie season that also saw Campbell deal with hamstring, hernia and hand injuries. We'll track his rehab this offseason. The Colts are down to WRs Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Ashton Dulin.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hand) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. The rookie has been out since Week 9 and certainly isn’t a safe Week 14 fantasy play. But Campbell tallied 13 targets and 3 carries in 2 games without T.Y. Hilton earlier this year. And the matchup is right. He’s at least in play for DFS tournaments.
