Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Campbell sprained his left MCL and PCL in Week 2 last year and missed the rest of the season.
  • He played in just 7 games as a rookie in 2019, missing 2 with an abdominal injury, 4 with a fractured hand and 3 with a broken foot. He was also sidelined that summer with a hamstring issue.
  • Campbell declared himself 100% healthy in May.
  • He’s flashed a few times among his 9 NFL games, posting lines of 5-25 (8 targets), 5-53 (5 targets) and 6-71 (9 targets). Campbell has also carried 6 times in that limited action.
  • The Colts took Campbell with the 59th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft after he set an Ohio State record with 90 catches and became just the 5th Buckeye to top 1,000 receiving yards (1,063) as a senior.
  • Campbell blazed a 4.31-second 40-yard dash and earned a 99th percentile SPARQ score at 6’0 and 205 pounds.
  • There’s been buzz from beat writers and Colts coaches on Campbell both of the last 2 summers. “He looks strong, fast, smart, explosive, good hands, understands the offense, consistent," HC Frank Reich said last August.
  • The Colts brought back WR T.Y. Hilton on a 1-year, $8 million deal, and WR Michael Pittman is a candidate for a 2nd-season leap. But the team didn’t make any significant additions to the WR room, so there’s a clear path for Campbell to win a top-3 role.
  • The big change comes at QB, where Carson Wentz replaces Philip Rivers. That’ll be an upgrade if we get 2017-2019 Wentz; a downgrade if it’s 2020 Wentz.
  • The Colts have ranked 27th and 25th in pass rate and 24th and 20th in pass attempts the past 2 seasons. Those teams were quarterbacked by Jacoby Brissett and then Rivers. In 2018 -- Frank Reich’s 1st season as HC and with Andrew Luck under center -- Indy finished 7th in pass rate and 2nd in attempts. We’re projecting the Colts’ 2021 pass rate to settle in between where it was in 2018 and 2019-2020.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

First things first: Campbell needs to stay healthy. He’s missed 23 of 32 games over his first 2 NFL seasons with abdominal, hand, foot and knee injuries.

The Colts made Campbell a 2nd-round pick in 2019, though, and he’s flashed in training camp and in his limited regular-season action. Battling for snaps with WRs Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal, there’s plenty of opportunity for Campbell to carve out a big role in 2021.

He’s a potential sleeper and worth monitoring closely this summer.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has been limited to 9 games over his first 2 NFL seasons due to a plethora of injuries. But, according to The Athletic's Zak Keefer, the team still believes he'll "become a vital player in their offense." The Colts made Campbell the 59th overall pick of the 2019 draft after he caught an Ohio State-record 90 balls as a senior and then blazed a 4.31-second 40-yard dash at the Combine. Campbell has flashed in those 9 games he's played so far, catching 5+ balls 3 times and also carrying 6 times for 50 yards. "If Campbell exits camp without any setbacks, he’ll have a big role in 2021," Keefer adds. Campbell remains super cheap in drafts, with an ADP sitting outside the first 12 rounds.

Colts WR Parris Campbell said he's been cleared after last September's knee injury and is back to 100%, per The Athletic's Stephen Holder. The Week 2 sprained MCL and PCL cost Campbell the rest of the 2020 season -- after he missed 9 games with a multitude of injuries during his 2019 rookie campaign. So we just haven't seen much of this guy on an NFL field yet. Campbell does have 3 games of 5+ catches among his 9 outings, so there's certainly some sleeper appeal here. We'll see how the summer goes for him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a PCL injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings and will be out "indefinitely." That sounds like it'll land Campbell on IR for some amount of time. That'll elevate the playing time for WR Zach Pascal, who jumped from 62% snap share in Week 1 to 81% in Week 2. It could also increase the opportunities for RB Nyheim Hines and the TEs in the short-to-intermediate range. Campbell looks droppable in fantasy football leagues of little-to-moderate depth.

Update: Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports that a source says it's actually an MCL injury for Campbell and that there's a "low percentage" chance that he returns this season. Take Campbell out of your 2020 plans for now.

Further update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Campbell sprained both the MCL and PCL, adding: "No clear timetable yet, but it'll be a while."

Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a left knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings. He was in obvious pain and had to be carted off. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is a "full go" for Week 1, according to Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star. That should return Campbell to a top-3 WR spot for an Indy offense that has dealt with injuries to its top 2 TEs during camp. Campbell carries plenty of upside into the 2020 season at a late-round price.
