View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Playing alongside QB Desmond Ridder, Pierce broke out for a career year as a ’21 senior (52-884-8).
  • He easily led Cincinnati with 20.2% of the receptions, 26.2% of the receiving yards and 24.2% of the receiving TDs.
  • Pierce (6’3, 211) excelled on deep balls, combining contested catch ability with deep speed.
  • At the Combine, he excelled in the 40-yard dash (82nd percentile time), the vertical (93rd percentile) and broad jump (90th percentile). He was below average in the agility drills, though, which confirms what we saw on tape.
  • Indy took him in Round 2 as the 12th WR off the board.
  • Pierce joins a WR corps that lacks a clear #2 behind Michael Pittman. Parris Campbell, Dezmon Patmon, Mike Strachan and Ashton Dulin currently stand as top options, along with Pierce.
  • The Colts upgraded their QB room by shipping out Carson Wentz for Matt Ryan. While Ryan doesn’t have Wentz’s arm strength, the accuracy upgrade should be noticeable.
  • This offense doesn’t project for high-volume passing, though. Indy ranked 28th in pass rate last season.
  • Offensive-minded HC Frank Reich and OC Marcus Brady return for another season. With Jonathan Taylor back, too, this offense will remain balanced.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Pierce landed in a fine spot for immediate playing time. The Colts offense just doesn’t have the pass volume to support him as anything more than a late best-ball pick.

Matt Ryan, QB IND

Ryan posts big numbers in loss

Colts QB Matt Ryan threw for a season-high 356 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He spread the ball around. TE Mo Alie-Cox, WR Alec Pierce and WR Michael Pittman tied for the target lead with 6 apiece. Alie-Cox caught all of his for 85 yards and both TDs. Pierce caught 4 balls for 80 yards. Pittman was limited to 3 catches for 31 yards. TE Kyle Granson and WR Parris Campbell also hauled in 4 receptions apiece. Challenging matchups with Denver and Jacksonville lie ahead the next 2 weeks.

Colts WR Michael Pittman returned from his 1-game quad injury to draw a team-high 9 targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He turned that into team highs in receptions (8) and receiving yards (72) but watched TE Jelani Woods claim both of the team's TDs. Although operating as the clear top target through his 2 games, Pittman has stopped short of truly dominating in that area, claiming 25.3% of QB Matt Ryan's total attempts in those contests. That level will work for supporting his fantasy production going forward but doesn't match the biggest target hogs around the league. Alec Pierce checked in 2nd among Colts wideouts Sunday with 5 targets in his return from a concussion.

Colts WR Alec Pierce (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Chiefs this weekend but isn’t a viable fantasy starter at this point.

Colts WR Alec Pierce (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. The rookie made some progress through the protocol this week and has a good chance to be cleared for Week 3. Look for WR Ashton Dulin to pick up most of Pierce's snaps against Jacksonville.

Dynasty Write-up
Pierce’s production at Cincinnati was just OK. But the 6’3, 211-pounder tested as a 98th percentile athlete at the Combine. And the tape is intriguing: contested-catch dominance and obvious juice to win downfield. The Colts evidently liked what they saw, making Pierce a 2nd-round pick and the 12th WR off the board. He finds plenty of opportunity in Indianapolis, where there’s little on the depth chart behind Michael Pittman.
