2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Colts had some WR depth with T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell, but they took Pittman with the 34th overall pick anyway. At 6-4, 223, Pittman is massive for a wideout, and he runs a fast-for-his-size 4.52 40, specs similar to those of Tampa Bay's Mike Evans. Pittman is a good route runner and can use his size and ball skills to win jump balls over top of overmatched defensive backs. He didn't do much until his senior year, but exploded for 1,275 yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games for USC. It's unclear whether Pittman can beat out last year's second-rounder Campbell and/or Pascal for a role opposite T.Y. Hilton, but he should get a chance whenever training camp opens this summer.

Lower Leg
October 3, 2020
Pittman (leg) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Considering coach Frank Reich relayed Friday there was no specific timetable in regard to Pittman's return from lower-leg surgery, the IR designation seemed like the most plausible outcome. The Colts activated tight end Trey Burton (calf) off injured reserve Saturday and presumably could use him to offset a pretty beleaguered Colts receiving corps, but expect the likes of T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal to assume the majority of WR snaps with Daurice Fountain, Ashton Dulin and Dezmon Patmon battling for the remaining scraps.
