Zach Pascal Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

NJ.com's Chris Franklin has Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal as the Eagles' 3rd and 4th WRs right now, behind the obvious lead duo of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. That leaves 3rd-year WR Jalen Reagor fighting Greg Ward, Britain Covey and Deon Cain for what's expected to be the final 2 spots at the position. Reagor should certainly hold an edge at that level, but this standing doesn't bode well for his chances of finding fantasy football relevance.

The Eagles signed former Colts WR Zach Pascal to a 1-year deal. This reunites Pascal with Nick Sirianni, Indy’s OC from 2018-2020. The 27-year-old pass catcher brings some size (6’2, 214) to Philly’s WR corps, but he averaged just 540 yards across 2019-2011. Pascal isn’t someone to chase in early best ball drafts.

Colts WR Zach Pascal came off the COVID list Thursday, returning him ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The Colts have placed WR Zach Pascal on the COVID list, knocking him out for tonight's game against the Cardinals.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans and will miss Thursday night's game vs. the Jets, according to The Athletic's Zak Keefer. We'll see if Hilton can get cleared for Week 10. Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal will again operate as Indy's top 2 WRs on Thursday night.

The forecast for tonight's Colts-49ers game calls for a 100% chance of rain with winds of 20-30 mph. That's ugly -- and certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We'd try to avoid both of these passing games outside of 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and Colts WR Michael Pittman. You should also stay away from both Ks.

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 QB Carson Wentz, WR Zach Pascal and C Ryan Kelly were activated from the COVID list on Thursday. Wentz seems to be on track to start next weekend's opener vs. the Seahawks -- but he'll do so with very little practice time under his belt.

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.

The Colts have placed QB Carson Wentz on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Indy also placed WR Zach Pascal and C Ryan Kelly on the same list. We’re not sure if Wentz was a close contact or if he tested positive, but it’s a setback regardless. Per team insider Mike Chappell, HC Frank Reich wanted to see Wentz “shoulder a heavy load going into next week.” That's not happening now. We’ll update you when we learn more.

Update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that all 3 players were close contacts with a Colts staffer who tested positive. That means they could return in 5 days if they test negative and remain symptom-free.

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.

The Colts have tendered WR Zach Pascal at the 2nd-round level, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That means any team that signs Pascal away would need to surrender a 2nd-round pick to Indy. We're not betting that another team will pay that price, so expect Pascal to remain a Colt. He ranked 2nd on the team in receiving yards (629), 3rd in targets (71) and 3rd in receptions (44).

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Michael Pittman figure to serve as Indy’s top 3 WRs. Pascal is the best bet for targets, but even he’s just a WR4.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (calf) has been activated from IR and is expected to play against the Lions on Sunday. The rookie is worth stashing in deeper leagues but shouldn't be in Week 8 fantasy lineups. Pittman's return does damper the sleeper appeal on WRs Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson, though.

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 WRs Michael Pittman (toe) and Zach Pascal (ankle) are active for today’s game against the Vikings. They’ll serve as Indy’s #3 and #4 WRs.

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 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 T.Y. Hilton (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He admitted earlier this week that he's not a lock to return this season. Zach Pascal gets another game as Indianapolis' #1 WR and is an upside WR3 play vs. Tampa's league-worst WR defense.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Fantasy owners can't be counting on him to play against the Bucs this weekend. That'd again leave Zach Pascal as Indy's #1 WR in the plus matchup.
