Colts' Michael Pittman: Leading receiver in playoff exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman caught five of 10 targets for a team-high 90 yards and added an 11-yard carry in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills.

Pittman racked up 102 scrimmage yards in the first half, but he also dropped a difficult but makeable catch in the end zone on 4th-and-goal late in the second quarter. He was a non-factor in the second half, losing one yard on his only catch. The rookie second-round pick topped 100 scrimmage yards only once in the regular season while reaching 50 in just three of 13 games, but hopefully Pittman will be able to build on this strong postseason debut heading into his sophomore season.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Just two grabs Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (concussion) secured both of his targets for 28 yards Sunday in the Colts' 28-14 win over the Jaguars.

After clearing the league's five-step concussion protocol earlier in Week 17, Pittman handled his usual starting role alongside T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal in the regular-season finale. The rookie second-round pick wrapped up his inaugural campaign with 40 receptions (on 61 targets) for 503 yards and a touchdown. He'll look to continue his steady production in the postseason, beginning with Indianapolis' wild-card game in Buffalo on Saturday.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Cleared for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (concussion) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Pittman was deemed questionable Friday, but he has since cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol. The rookie second-round pick is slated to start at wide receiver in the crucial divisional tilt. Pittman hasn't produced big plays lately, as he's failed to post more than 50 yards or a touchdown in a game since Week 11.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing fully both Thursday and Friday.

Per Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis, the wideout still needs clearance from an independent neurologist in order to play this weekend. That said, Bowen relays that Pittman appears on track to receive the green light to play ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (concussion) practiced fully Thursday.

Pittman was limited Wednesday, so his full participation Thursday would appear to give him a good chance of clearing the NFL's concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Friday's final injury report of the week will confirm whether or not Pittman heads into the weekend with any questions regarding his Week 17 playing status.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Opens week with limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

Pittman will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol in order to participate in Sunday's must-win season finale against Jacksonville, but it's good to see him practicing in some capacity after sustaining the head injury in last week's loss to the Steelers. The rookie second-round pick appeared to be breaking out in November with three consecutive games over 50 yards, but he hasn't reached that mark in his five appearances since.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Concussion confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Pittman is in the league's five-step concussion protocol, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Pittman hauled in three of five targets for 38 yards before being force out of last weekend's loss to the Steelers due to the brain injury. He'll need to garner full medical clearance in order to suit up against the Jaguars on Sunday, with the Colts still competing for a playoff berth.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman exited Sunday's game against the Steelers with a possible concussion, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Prior to leaving the contest to be evaluated for a possible concussion, Pittman caught three of his five targets for 38 yards.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Tough outing against Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman caught two of three targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans.

Pittman finished third among wide receivers in targets and receiving yards, as Zach Pascal and T.Y. Hilton both garnered six targets and recorded more than 70 yards. The rookie out of USC is in a bit of a cold spell, as he has caught more than two passes just once over the past four games, failing to surpass 50 receiving yards or score a touchdown in any of those outings.

December 16, 2020 01:24 PM
Colts' Michael Pittman: Posts 45 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman caught two of five targets for 42 yards, adding a three-yard rush during Sunday's 44-27 win against the Raiders.

The rookie posted two receptions of 19-plus yards during Week 14, but his fantasy production remains in a slump. Pittman racked up 14 catches for 223 yards and a touchdown between Weeks 9 and 11, but he's now been held under 50 receiving yards with no touchdowns over each of his past three outings. Workload remains consistent for the USC product, as he's attracted five-plus targets in five of his past six contests heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Texans.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Catches all five targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman caught all five of his targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 26-20 win over the Texans.

Pittman finished second on the team in catches and receiving yards while tying for second in targets. His long gain went for just 13 yards, however, as he finished with a lackluster average of 9.2 yards per reception. Meanwhile, T.Y. Hilton enjoyed his best performance of the season and seems to be hitting his stride after playing second fiddle to Pittman in recent weeks. Despite seeing 14 targets over the last two games, Pittman has snared just seven of those while totaling 74 yards and will look to improve his efficiency in next Sunday's matchup with the Raiders.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Can't deliver despite opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman recorded two receptions on nine targets for 28 yards in Week 12 against the Titans.

Pittman was the most-targeted wideout for the Colts, but he was uncharacteristically inefficient. Entering the Week 12 contest, Pittman had broken out across his last two games by converting 11 targets into 10 receptions, 167 yards and a touchdown. The entire Indianapolis offense was poor against the Titans, however, and Pittman will have the chance to bounce back in a positive matchup in Week 13 against the Texans.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Builds on breakout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman recorded three receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Packers.

After breaking out in Week 10 thanks to commanding seven targets, Pittman showcased his big-play ability against the Packers. He did the majority of his damage on a short reception, after which he subsequently weaved through the opposing secondary to find the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown. His remaining two receptions went for a combined 21 yards, though Pittman continues to establish himself as a favorite target of Philip Rivers. Pittman will look to continue his breakout in a Week 12 matchup against the Titans.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Career-best numbers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman brought in seven of eight targets for 101 yards and rushed once for 21 yards in the Colts' 34-17 win over the Titans on Thursday night.

The rookie was making his third appearance since a three-game stint on injured reserve due to a lower leg injury, and he turned in what was easily his best game yet as a pro. Pittman recorded a game-long 40-yard catch among his exploits while pacing all pass catchers on either club in receptions, receiving yards and targets. The 23-year-old's impressive size/speed combination was also on full display during his nifty 21-yard reverse in the second half, and he'll look to make even bigger contributions in what could turn out to be a Week 11 aerial shootout against the Packers on Sunday, Nov. 22.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Four grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman secured four of seven targets for 56 yards in the Colts' 24-10 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Pittman was much more involved in his second game back from injured reserve, as he'd managed just one catch for six yards over 45 snaps Week 8. His receiving yardage led the Colts on the afternoon, while his reception tally tied for second with T.Y. Hilton (groin) out of action and Jack Doyle leaving the game in the first quarter with a concussion. Pittman will look to build on Sunday's improved numbers in a Thursday night Week 10 road battle versus the Titans, a game that both Hilton and Doyle could be hard-pressed to return for.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Resumes practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Pittman sat out Thursday's walk-through practice after being deemed to have been in close contact with a team staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. The wideout's return to practice a day later suggests his absence Thursday was merely cautionary, so he'll be on track to play Sunday against the Ravens.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Sits out Thursday's walk-through
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman was one of several Colts players who missed practice Thursday because they were in proximity to the team staff member who tested positive for COVID-19, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Per Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star, the other Indy players in the same situation are Sheldon Day, Tyquan Lewis and Quenton Nelson. All four players can return to practice Friday if they test negative for COVID-19.

Colts' Michael Pittman: One catch in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (lower leg) caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 41-21 win over the Lions.

Pittman played 45 offensive snaps in his first action since Week 3 but simply didn't get much attention from quarterback Philip Rivers. The rookie second-round pick will hope to get open more frequently against the Ravens in Week 9, but doing so won't be easy against the stingy Baltimore secondary.

Colts' Michael Pittman: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittman (lower leg) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Pittman underwent surgery to address a lower leg injury he suffered in Week 3. He returned to practice this week, but it's not clear how much he'll be able to play this Sunday against Detroit. Still, when healthy he should take over as the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

October 28, 2020 09:44 PM
Colts' Michael Pittman: Set to resume practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Frank Reich said that Pittman (lower leg) will return to practice Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

With Pittman having been designated to return from injured reserve, the Colts now have a 21-day window to decide whether to return the wideout to the active roster or to keep him on IR for the remainder of the season. Unless Pittman suffers a setback, however, it's safe to assume that he's in the team's plans, with offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni indicating that he's eager to welcome Pittman back to the team's pass-catching mix. Prior to his injury, Pittman hauled in nine of his 12 targets for 73 yards in three games.
