Draft note
by John Paulsen
Pittman missed three games as a rookie, but finished with 40 catches for 503 yards and a touchdown on 61 targets. That projects to 49-619-1.2 on 75 targets had he played a full season. Pittman’s route-running was solid–Matt Harmon of Reception Perception called him a “possible breakout candidate” after he finished fifth amongst his rookie class in success rate versus man coverage. Pittman certainly has the upside to return value at his current ADP (8th round, WR47), though it’s worth wondering if any receivers in Frank Reich’s spread-it-around offense will see enough targets to become a consistent fantasy starter. T.Y. Hilton, Nyheim Hines and Zach Pascal return, and Parris Campbell is back from injury. It’s also fair to wonder if Carson Wentz is primed for a bounceback season as he reunites with Reich.

IND WR Michael Pittman Jr. - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Michael Pittman Jr. was disappointing in Week 1 against a Seattle defense that really struggled last year against the pass. He caught just three passes on four targets for 29 yards. He did play 97% of the team’s offensive snaps, but was clearly outperformed by Zach Pascal, and it’ll be hard to bank on him until he shows something.

This week, Pittman Jr. faces a tough Rams defense that was tops in the NFL in aFPA to opposing wide receivers in 2020, and just demolished the Bears’ passing game on Sunday night. He’s worth holding on to based on his snap count and potential, but I’m going to need to see it before I trust him in my lineup.
