  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Dominant effort in Week 2 loss

    Pittman (ankle) secured eight of 12 targets for 123 yards in the Colts' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

    A late-week addition to the injury report, Pittman shook off his questionable designation to pace the Colts in receptions, receiving yardage and targets on the afternoon. Pittman likely derived some benefit from the absence of fellow wideout Parris Campbell (abdomen), and he quickly made up for a lackluster three-catch showing from Week 1 that cast some doubt on his ability to live up to his current de facto status as the No. 1 wideout in the team's offense. Pittman will look to build on the stellar performance Week 3 when the Colts face off with the Titans in an AFC South road battle, but the health of quarterback Carson Wentz (ankle) undoubtedly will be pivotal to the receiver's fantasy outlook for that contest.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Cleared for Week 2

    Pittman (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Pittman was a late addition to the Colts' injury report after hurting his ankle in practice Friday, but the issue won't be significant enough to keep him off the field Sunday. The second-year wideout was on the field for all but two snaps in the Colts' Week 1 loss to the Seahawks, but he didn't see much volume in the passing game with three receptions for 29 yards on four targets.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Expected to play Sunday

    The Colts are confident that Pittman (ankle) will be available for Sunday's game against the Rams, despite him being listed as questionable on the official injury report, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Schefter adds that the team wants to test Pittman in pre-game warmups before making a final decision on his status. Pittman, who was added to the injury report Friday after being a limited participant in practice, will likely operate as Indianapolis' top option on the outside Week 2 with T.Y. Hilton (neck) on injured reserve.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Questionable against Rams

    Pittman (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Pittman was a late addition to the injury report after being limited in practice Friday. He'll likely suit up and continue to start on the outside with T.Y. Hilton (neck) still sidelined. The 2020 second-round pick played all but two of the Colts' offensive snaps in Week 1 but had just three catches to show for all that playing time.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Just three receptions Sunday

    Pittman had three receptions on four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

    Pittman played on 74 of the offense's 76 snaps as he took over the No. 1 receiver role with T.Y. Hilton out after neck surgery. However, he was just fourth on the team in targets as Indy's offensive line struggled to give Carson Wentz enough time to throw a deep ball. Wentz sustained 10 quarterback hits in the game. Because Indy's O-line is viewed as as strong unit, Pittman should improve if the unit bounces back and Wentz has more time to throw.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Could move into No. 1 role

    Pittman is expected to step in as the Colts' No. 1 receiver for at least the first three weeks of the season with T.Y. Hilton (neck) headed to injured reserve after undergoing surgery Wednesday, Michael Baca of reports.

    Even before he had the procedure to address a disc issue, Hilton was no longer the undisputed top option in the Indianapolis wideout room, but his absence nonetheless boosts early season target projections for Pittman, Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell. Given that he's locked in as a starter on the heels of a solid rookie campaign, Pittman looks like the upside play out of that group, though he profiles as a possession receiver more so than a big-play threat. He showed strength and elusiveness after the catch last season, creating some fantasy intrigue even if downfield targets are few and far between. The Colts expect Hilton to return this season, possibly as soon as October.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Role could expand

    With T.Y. Hilton potentially in line to multiple games due to an upper back or neck injury, Pittman, Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell appear poised to head the Colts' wide receiving corps early on this season, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

    Also in the team's wideout mix battling for depth slotting are Mike Strachan, Ashton Dulin, Dezmon Patmon and DeMichael Harris. As a rookie, Pittman caught 40 passes for 503 yards and a TD in 13 games, but with Hilton now expected to miss time, the 2020 second-rounder has a chance to assume an expanded role with the team to start the coming season and in the process solidify his standing as a fantasy lineup option.

  • Colts' Michael Pittman: Snags one pass Saturday

    Pittman posted one catch (on two targets) for seven yards during Saturday's preseason victory at Minnesota.

    Even with veteran T.Y. Hilton taking a seat, Pittman wasn't targeted by starter Sam Ehlinger until the first play of the second quarter, and his only catch went for seven yards. Meanwhile, all of Mo Alie-Cox, Zach Pascal, Parris Campbell, Nyheim Hines and even Farrod Green earned targets before Pittman. Pittman seems to be vying with Pascal and Campbell for slotting on the wide receiver depth chart, but Carson Wentz's foot injury has led to uneven quarterback play from Ehlinger and Jacob Eason, the primary competitors for a potential Week 1 start.
