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.

Michael Pittman, WR IND

8:15am EDT 9/26/22

Pittman returns to lead Colts WRs

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Pittman finished his 2nd season (and 1st full, healthy campaign) as WR17 in PPR, despite QB play that led to another Carson Wentz trade. Pittman looks like the lead wideout for an offense with potential to improve at QB over the next 2 seasons.
