Basic StatsMichael Pittman's Preseason Player Analysis

View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Despite a rocky season from Carson Wentz, Pittman showed major growth in his 2nd pro season.
  • He appeared in all 17 games after missing 3 as a rookie.
  • Among 37 WRs with 100+ targets, Pittman ranked 15th in PFF receiving grade, 13th in yards per route run and 7th in contested catch rate.
  • He caught 71% of his targets overall, another top-15 mark in the 37-player sample.
  • Pittman finished as a top-24 WR 8 times, maxing out as the WR2 Week 8 vs. Tennessee.
  • Boosted by a thin WR corps that saw T.Y. Hilton miss 7 games, Pittman reached 8+ targets 7 times. His 25.6% target share easily paced the team.
  • Pittman saw 25.4% of Indy’s red zone targets — 8th most among WRs league-wide.
  • HC Frank Reich and OC Marcus Brady return for another year together. Indy ranked just 28th in pass rate; 21st in total plays.
  • The offseason turned up the arrival of Matt Ryan, who’s at minimum an upgrade in accuracy and dependability on Carson Wentz.
  • Both Reich and Pittman have touted Ryan's ball placement in OTAs. “The ball is just right there, and you just turn and catch the ball. I mean, it just makes it easy,” Pittman said. “Matt can pretty much put it wherever he wants.”
  • The Colts are currently slated to enter the season with rookie 2nd rounder Alex Pierce and Parris Campbell behind Pittman.
  • Pierce brings downfield ability and contested-catch strength, but he’s still a wild card as a rookie (and 1-year college producer). Campbell brings serious durability concerns.
  • This TE group brings promise but doesn’t have a standout target among Mo Alie-Cox, Kylen Granson and raw rookie Jelani Woods.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Pittman ranked as the PPR WR18 last year in what amounted to a breakout 2nd season.

What’s encouraging? Pittman managed to dodge the Colts making a significant upgrade to the WR corps this offseason. That puts the USC product in line for another hefty workload. He’ll also enjoy a noticeable QB upgrade following the addition of Matt Ryan.

Ultimately, a WR1 season is well within play for the 24-year-old Pittman.

Carson Wentz, QB WAS

10:57am EST 1/2/22

Carson Wentz cleared to play Week 17

Colts QB Carson Wentz (COVID) has been medically cleared to play vs. the Raiders today, HC Frank Reich told NFL Network's Stacey Dales. Wentz is just a QB2 in what figures to be another run-heavy attack from the Colts. But he's good news for RB Jonathan Taylor and WR Michael Pittman

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 Colts are "confident" that WR Michael Pittman (ankle) and WR Parris Campbell (abdomen) will play against the Rams in Week 2, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Both are questionable, so we'll have to confirm their statuses ahead of kickoff.

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 GM Chris Ballard said Wednesday that WR T.Y. Hilton has had surgery to alleviate his disc issue, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. Ballard said Hilton should be back "sooner than later." The IR designation means the veteran will miss at least the first 3 games.
