Michael Pittman Jr. Week 15 Outlook - Texans at Colts

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Dec 17th 2020, 8:19am EST

He's the one playing the most snaps among the Colts receivers, but it's become the T.Y. Hilton show and Pittman's kind of been forgotten. Should he though? He's seen at least five targets in each of the last three games, including five of the last six. Outside of his 101-yard game against the Titans back in Week 10, Pittman hasn't topped 66 yards, so it's starting to feel a bit like we did about Hilton earlier this year before he hit his stride. Are we close with Pittman? If there's a matchup to take advantage of, it's this one. The Texans have allowed 14 different wide receivers to finish as top-30 options against them, and it would be more if they weren't so bad against the run. They've only faced 19.2 targets per game to wide receivers (10th-fewest) but have allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to them. The 2.01 PPR points per target they've allowed is huge when you're getting five-plus targets like Pittman is, and though he did catch all five of his targets against them in their first matchup, they only went for 46 yards. He's someone who should offer a WR4/5-type floor with a ceiling for more if it's his turn to shine, which makes him an interesting DFS tournament play this week.
