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.

Leading receiver in playoff exit
WRIndianapolis Colts
January 9, 2021
Pittman caught five of 10 targets for a team-high 90 yards and added an 11-yard carry in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills.
ANALYSIS
Pittman racked up 102 scrimmage yards in the first half, but he also dropped a difficult but makeable catch in the end zone on 4th-and-goal late in the second quarter. He was a non-factor in the second half, losing one yard on his only catch. The rookie second-round pick topped 100 scrimmage yards only once in the regular season while reaching 50 in just three of 13 games, but hopefully Pittman will be able to build on this strong postseason debut heading into his sophomore season.
