24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Indianapolis Colts
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Last year's 34th overall pick, Pittman missed three games after having surgery for compartment syndrome, but then showed flashes when he was healthy, even with shot-putter Philip Rivers throwing him the ball. Pittman finished with 8.2 YPT, two catches of 40-plus yards and a 100-yard game in Week 10 against the Titans. Not included in Pittman's season totals are his stats from the wild-card loss to Buffalo, in which he put up a 10-5-90 receiving line with an 11-yard run, to boot. At 6-4, 223, Pittman is massive, and he moves well for his size - 4.52 40. (Think a slightly smaller Mike Evans.) The Colts' receiving corps is wide open, featuring a past-his-prime T.Y. Hilton, physically gifted but never healthy Parris Campbell and the steady but unspectacular Zach Pascal. It's possible none emerge as a true No. 1, but Pittman might be the best bet among the four, especially with Hilton starting the season on IR after neck surgery. Read Past Outlooks

Pittman hauled in all four of his targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-18 win over the 49ers.
ANALYSIS
Pittman resumed his role as the Colts' top outside threat with T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) sitting this one out. The 24-year-old took advantage of the opportunity, recording his second 100-plus yard game of the season as well as his second trip to the end zone. Pittman has been the team's most-consistent wideout and fantasy producer at the position, but fantasy managers need to monitor Hilton's status for next week's matchup against the Titans, as Pittman took a backseat (two catches for 35 yards) to the veteran in the lone game they played in together Week 6.

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.
