Parris Campbell Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

The Athletic's Zak Keeker doesn't expect WR Parris Campbell to be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Chargers. The rookie missed most of August with a bum hamstring but flashed in the preseason finale with 3 catches for 42 yards. "[HC] Frank Reich and staff have been impressed at how quickly he's picked up the scheme," Keefer says. We wouldn't want to trust Campbell in fantasy lineups in his pro debut against a tough Chargers defense. But he's an intriguing bench stash -- even with Jacoby Brissett under center.

Colts WR Parris Campbell played in the team's preseason finale, catching 3 balls for 42 yards, including this explosive catch and run. The rookie missed almost all of August with a bum hamstring and just returned to practice on Monday, so it was good to see him out there. Campbell's upside took a big hit with QB Andrew Luck's retirement. But he was flashing early in training camp and should quickly emerge as a top 3 WR in Indianapolis. You could do worse as a late-round pick in your fantasy draft.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) practiced on Monday for the 1st time since late July. That missed time is a big deal for a rookie -- even though he was reportedly balling out before going down. Throw in the QB downgrade from Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett, and Campbell doesn't look like an early-season fantasy option.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts QB Andrew Luck has decided to retire. Luck has reportedly already talked to team management about his decision. Jacoby Brissett now takes over the starting gig. This appears to be a shocking move to everyone. Schefter reports that Luck feels "worn down." The QB switch lowers the ceiling for everyone in the Indy offense. The Colts finished 30th in points and 31st in scoring in 2017, with Luck sidelined (shoulder) and Brissett starting.

Here's a full breakdown of the fantasy impact of Luck's retirement.

The Athletic's Zak Keefer tweets that there's "no guarantee" that WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) is ready for Week 1. The rookie has been sidelined for about 3 weeks now with his bum hammy, and HC Frank Reich hinted on Tuesday that Campbell won't practice this week. He was buzzing early in camp and should emerge as the Colts' #3 WR quickly once he gets healthy. But it doesn't look like Campbell will be an early-season fantasy option.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) was set to return to practice but suffered a setback over the weekend, HC Frank Reich said. "He felt a little something yesterday,” Reich said. “We’re kind of re-evaluating that. Hopefully, that wasn’t too much. … We’ll have to wait a few more days to see if that settles down. Hopefully, we can get him back soon.” Campbell was shining early in camp but has now missed 10 straight practices. He needs to get back on the field soon if he wants to be an early-season fantasy option.

Colts WR Parris Campbell missed his 6th straight practice on Tuesday with a hamstring injury. The rookie was lighting up training camp early but needs to get back on the field if he wants to win a significant early-season role. We'll keep an eye on him. Campbell is still worth a look at his 12th-round ADP.

The Athletic's Zak Keefer raved about WR Parris Campbell, calling him a "draft-day steal" and saying he's "dripping with talent." Virtually everyone covering the Colts deemed Campbell a standout early in training camp. He's been sidelined with a hamstring issue the past few days, so we'll keep an eye on that situation. But it sure sounds like the rookie is set to play a significant role this year. "Campbell feels bigger than he’s listed, and he’s more polished than you’d assume," Keefer wrote. "[HC Frank] Reich has already indicated he plans to use him all over the field." Campbell is a nice upside pick at his 12th-round ADP.

The Colts grabbed Ohio State WR Parris Campbell with the 59th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. After a quiet first 2 seasons on campus, Campbell led Ohio State with 584 receiving yards as a junior. Then he set a school record with 90 catches this past season and became just the 5th Buckeye to top 1,000 receiving yards (1,063). His 12 TDs tied for 8th in the country. Campbell ranked 5th among all draft-eligible WRs in yards per route run (3.47), according to Pro Football Focus. He lined up primarily in the slot for Ohio State and did the vast majority of his work near the line of scrimmage. Only 21 of his 111 targets last year came 10+ yards downfield, and he made just 2 catches 20+ yards downfield. Campbell blew up the Combine with a 4.31-second 40 time and a 99th percentile SPARQ score at 6’0 and 205 pounds. So there’s a chance he becomes more of a deep-ball receiver at the next level. Joining Andrew Luck in Indianapolis is a nice long-term landing spot.
