It's probably time that we recognize just how dominant Pittman has been this season. After being drafted around the WR50 mark in drafts this past off-season, Pittman is now the WR16 on the season and he's averaging 11.8 Half PPR points per game. He has 61 receptions on the season for 805 yards and 5 touchdowns through 12 games and he was essentially free in drafts. While he's had a few down games here recently, he's still an incredibly consistent WR that's receiving the majority of the targets in Indianapolis. With all that being said, he now gets to take on the Texans defense this week and this is a matchup that you're going to turn right back around and plug him into your starting lineup. The Texans are allowing 173.8 receiving yards per game to opposing WRs and we should see Pittman get back on track here. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR2.
