The Colts on Saturday activated WR Parris Campbell from IR. He had been there since Oct. 19 after suffering a foot injury in the Week 6 win over Houston. HC Frank Reich reportedly said the coaching staff will decide whether to play Campbell in the regular-season finale against Jacksonville. We wouldn't bet on a big role if Campbell does get into that game. We'll see about his role for the playoffs (assuming the Colts get there).
The Giants are signing WR Parris Campbell, according to The Score's Jordan Schultz. Finally healthy last year, Campbell set career highs across the board with 63 catches, 623 yards and 3 TDs. That was still only good for a 64th-place finish among WRs in PPR points per game. Campbell finds plenty of opportunity in the Giants' WR corps -- but we'll see how he fits alongside WR Wan'Dale Robinson. Both of those guys do their best work from the slot. Robinson, of course, is rehabbing a November ACL tear.
Update: Campbell got a 1-year deal, $3 million deal that can be worth up to $6.7 million via incentives.
The targets returned Sunday for Colts WR Parris Campbell, with QB Matt Ryan taking back over for Sam Ehlinger. Campbell matched WR Michael Pittman for the team leads in targets (9) and receptions (7) in the win over the Raiders. He turned those into 76 yards and the team's lone TD catch (from 35 yards out). Pittman gained just 53 yards on his 7 catches (7.6 per reception). TE Kyren Granson checked in 3rd with 4 catches for 57 yards. Campbell now has 9+ targets and 7+ receptions in each of the past 3 Ryan games.
Colts WR Parris Campbell led the team with 12 targets, 10 receptions and 70 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans, adding Indy's only offensive TD. It marked his 2nd straight game of double-digit targets, though high volume for QB Matt Ryan has certainly helped. Campbell garnered 27.3% of Ryan's pass attempts Sunday and 22.5% over the past 2 games combined. He'll be worth a look in WR3 territory for the Week 8 home date with Washington. Michael Pittman checked in 2nd among Colts WRs against Tennessee, with a 6-58 receiving line on 9 targets. Rookie Alec Pierce collected just 3 catches for 37 yards on 4 targets. The team's TEs combined for just 2 catches and 10 yards on 3 targets.
Colts QB Matt Ryan threw to WR Parris Campbell multiple times this offseason, and the duo is off to a strong start in training camp. "When I'm lined up in the slot running those crossers, that's Matt's bread and butter," Campbell said. "I think that's my bread and butter, too." Campbell, of course, has been limited to just 15 games by multiple injuries through 3 NFL seasons. But he's still just 25 and is running as Indianapolis' #2 WR at the start of camp. "This is his year for him to show out. We're ready for that," OC Marcus Brady said. "He's been looking great — he had a great offseason, he's had a great few days here. I thought he made some nice catches, run some great routes, you can feel his speed out on the field." Campbell is an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
Colts WR Parris Campbell ran "exclusively" with the 1st-team offense and was "featured extensively" in last week's minicamp, The Athletic's Zak Keefer writes. Campbell has been limited to 15 games over the last 3 years by a litany of injuries. But with WR Zach Pascal gone and WR T.Y. Hilton still unsigned, there are 106 targets available in Indianapolis. It sounds like Campbell will have every opportunity to claim a big chunk of them. He's worth a look late in fantasy drafts.
