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.

The Colts have activated WR Michael Pittman (leg) from IR. We'll see when the rookie is ready for game action, but we wouldn't bother stashing him now outside of deep fantasy leagues. He caught 9 of 12 targets for 73 scoreless yards over the season's first 3 weeks.

Colts WR Michael Pittman underwent surgery on Sunday to address compartment syndrome in his calf, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's the injury that Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett dealt with last November. Per Rapoport, Pittman is expected to be sidelined through the Colts' Week 7 bye. The rookie can be dropped in redraft leagues. Indy is now down to WRs T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal, Daurice Fountain and Ashton Dulin.

Colts WR Michael Pittman suffered an ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets. He's questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

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.

The Colts selected USC WR Michael Pittman with the 34th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6’4, 223-pounder impressed at the Combine with a 4.52-second 40 time and 36.5-inch vertical. He finished with an 86th percentile SPARQ score. Pittman improved his numbers in each of his 4 seasons at USC, culminating with a big 101-1,275-11 line in 2019. He ranked 4th in the nation in catches, 10th in receiving yards and 19th in TDs. His market shares — 28% of the receptions, 29% of the yards and 31% of the TDs — are just mediocre, though. And Pittman’s 2.32 yards per route run ranked 22nd among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. He’s a strong route runner, especially for his size, and has a reliable pair of mitts, dropping just 2.8% of his catchable targets over the past 4 years. There’s just very little explosion to Pittman’s game, which would seem to limit his fantasy upside. He does have a clear path to a rookie-year role, though, with T.Y. Hilton the only established WR in Indianapolis.
