Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (ankle, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. Parris Campbell (abdomen, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. These are both late-week downgrades which are worrisome. If neither player can go, Zach Pascal would serve as the team's most experienced receiver. Going back to last season, Pascal has six touchdowns in his last five games, including the postseason. He'll likely draw Jalen Ramsey in coverage, which is not ideal.
IND WR Zach Pascal - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Los Angeles Rams
Zach Pascal had a nice start to the season with four catches for 43 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a loss to the Seahawks. Pascal also played 91% of the team’s offensive snaps, making it clear he’s going to be a primary part of the offense.
This is a tough matchup for Pascal, facing a Rams defense that shut down the Bears’ passing game on Sunday night and was ranked number one in aFPA to opposing wide receivers a year ago. It’s risky to bank on him in a tough matchup, but his five targets seem sustainable, giving him hope for low-end WR3 production.
