Draft note
by John Paulsen
Pittman should be penciled in as the starter opposite T.Y. Hilton, though Zach Pascal and/or Parris Campbell will have something to say about that. This is a good short-term landing spot for the talented rookie given the addition of Philip Rivers and the 9.2 vacated targets per game that are up for grabs in Indy. Pittman should see snaps, and that’s half the battle for rookie receivers hoping to make a splash in year one. The Colts also lost Eric Ebron, who had 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Pittman’s 6’4” frame (and 11 touchdowns as a senior) should make him a primary end zone target for Rivers. Kevin Zatloukal's WR Success Model says there's a 30% chance that Pittman has a top 36 finish in his first three seasons.

IND WR Michael Pittman Jr. - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Tennessee Titans

Michael Pittman had only three catches last week against the Packers, but he caught every one of his targets and finished with 66 yards and a touchdown. Pittman is risky because the Colts' wide receivers aren’t getting consistent work and his targets have been sporadic outside of the two preceding weeks, when he totaled 15 targets. Banking on his upside is risky, but he definitely should be rostered.

This week, Pittman faces a Titans defense that ranks 27th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. That makes him pretty tempting. Philip Rivers may miss the game due to injury, but either way, I think Pittman is a nice desperation, boom-or-bust option in deep leagues. If he’s on waivers, he’s definitely worth at least a speculative add at the back end of the roster if he can get more targets.
