WR - IND - IR
Week 8 Outlook
WR Parris Campbell is will undergo surgery soon and is "not officially out for the season, said Colts' HC Frank Reich.
Campbell will undergo surgery on his knee, but there is no timetable for his return. The Colts will now be without Campbell and Michael Pittman (leg) for the foreseeable future. Campbell is expected to return at some point in the season and is worth stashing in deep-league formats. The 23-year-old has recorded six receptions for 71 yards over two games in 2020.
The Indianapolis Colts have officially placed WR Parris Campbell on IR.
Campbell was a popular sleeper in fantasy drafts this year, and Week 1 was promising. He saw 9 targets for 71 yards and looked to have a good report with QB Phillip Rivers. However, a sprained MCL and PCL has put a damper on things. Campbell should be held onto if possible, but it's worth noting the Colts have a bye in Week 7, and that may play a part in rushing him back. It may be worth monitoring the usage of WRs Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal moving forward.
Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell was carted off the field on Sunday with an apparent knee injury, and the initial concern was that he had torn his ACL. While an ACL tear was eventually ruled out, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter is reporting that Campbell suffered a PCL injury that is "expected to sideline him indefinitely."
Campbell played in just seven games during his rookie season, and it looks like he is going to miss significant time once again. He will likely be headed to injured reserve this week, and we should learn more about his potential timetable in the coming days. With Campbell out, Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascall are the top candidates for additional snaps and targets.
