Deon Cain Fantasy Football News 2019

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He's expected to miss another game or 2 beyond Week 10. With WR Parris Campbell (hand) also out, Indy is down to WRs Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain. Pascal led the group in snaps and routes last week and is a viable WR3 in Sunday's plus matchup.

Colts WR Parris Campbell fractured his hand in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, HC Frank Reich said. The rookie will undergo surgery and "miss some time," Reich said. The team is hoping not to place him on IR, but Campbell figures to miss multiple weeks. It's unfortunate timing as he was in line to assume a bigger role with T.Y. Hilton out with his calf injury. The Colts are now down to Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain as their healthy WRs. We'll see if Devin Funchess is ready to return from his broken collarbone.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. HC Frank Reich said Friday that Hilton hurt his calf on Wednesday and could miss 3 weeks. His absence leaves Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Parris Campbell and Deon Cain as Indy's top 4 WRs in Pittsburgh this weekend. Pascal is the best fantasy bet after leading those other 3 in snaps and routes last week, but he's no better than a WR4. Downgrade QB Jacoby Brissett without Hilton.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Raiders. That leaves WRs Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers atop the depth chart. Cain and Campbell are the most exciting options but are really only in play for DFS tournaments.

The Colts ended up listing WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) as doubtful on the final Week 4 injury report. So it looks like he'll be held out of Sunday's game against the Raiders. That leaves Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers as Indy's top 4 WRs. Cain led the group in snaps last week and is the best fantasy bet. But you should avoid this situation outside of DFS tournaments.

The Colts have placed WR Devin Funchess on IR with his broken collarbone. That knocks him out until at least Week 10, so Funchess can be dropped in redraft leagues. We'll see who picks up his snaps going forward. The 6'2, 202-pound Deon Cain might be a sneaky bet. Parris Campbell, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal are other candidates.

Colts WR Devin Funchess suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Funchess is likely heading for surgery. Expect the wideout to miss at least half the season. His injury will leave more available for fellow WRs Deon Cain and Parris Campbell.

Colts GM Chris Ballard said WR Deon Cain (knee) is expected to be on the field for training camp but likely won't be back to 100% until "midway" through the season. Last year's 6th-rounder is still rehabbing last August's torn ACL. He was buzzing before that injury and remains a nice dynasty stash. But Cain is a long shot to make a 2019 fantasy impact in a WR corps that added Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell this offseason.

Colts rookie WR Deon Cain suffered an ACL tear in Thursday night's game against the Seahawks and will miss the rest of the season. The 6th-round pick had been building buzz since the spring and appeared en route to immediate impact on the offense. His injury likely solidifies Ryan Grant's status as the #2 wideout and leaves opportunity for WR Chester Rogers -- along with other new targets such as TE Eric Ebron and rookie RB Nyheim Hines. Cain remains an attractive dynasty stash. He turned 22 this week.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Sunday that Ryan Grant has "separated" from the pack in the competition for the team's #2 WR job. Chester Rogers has reportedly struggled early in camp, and rookie Deon Cain has "leveled off of late" after a strong start, according to the Indy Star's Zak Keefer. This battle isn't over yet. But if you're taking a shot on a Colts WR late in your draft, Grant looks like your guy for now.

Colts rookie WR Deon Cain had a strong spring and has carried that momentum into training camp. He was a standout in Thursday's session, according to the Indy Star's Zak Keefer. HC Frank Reich has noticed. “In this league, you gotta make chunk plays,” Reich said. “He flashes, he’s got a little knack, he’s good against press coverage.” The Colts' #2 WR spot is wide open behind T.Y. Hilton. Veterans Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers still look like the favorites for the job, but there's certainly opportunity for Cain. We'll continue to track his progress.

The Colts spent an early 6th-round pick on Clemson WR Deon Cain. The 6'2, 202-pounder ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash at the Combine and finished the 3-cone drill in 6.71 seconds. Both numbers rate 77th percentile or better among Combine wideouts since 1999. Cain's production proved inconsistent, though he put up a nice 15.4% career TD rate and topped 17 yards per catch in each of his 1st 2 seasons. He joins a Colts offense with little proven ability behind T.Y. Hilton at WR.
