Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 1 Rankings

Michael Pittman Jr. Note

Pittman is a talented young receiver, but he was stuck in a bad situation last year with a dusty Matt Ryan playing quarterback for most of the season, and Pittman's situation might not be that much better this year with rookie QB Anthony Richardson facing NFL defenses for the first time. Pittman is a good bet to lead the Colts in targets for a third consecutive season, but that might not translate into worthwhile fantasy production. Treat Pittman like a midrange WR4.

Alec Pierce Note

A vertical receiver like Pierce should mesh well with a rocket-armed quarterback like Anthony Richardson. But while Richardson gets accustomed to facing NFL defenses, connections between Richardson and Pierce could be more infrequent than we'd like. Keep Pierce on ice until we see him establish chemistry with the rookie QB.

Evan Hull Note

The rookie from Northwestern was a prolific pass catcher in college. However, mobile quarterbacks tend not to check down to their running backs as often as pocket passers, and Colts QB Anthony Richardson is extremely mobile. But Hull is a capable runner, too, and if Colts head coach elects to be run-heavy to make life easier for Richardson - as Steichen did two years ago when he was the Eagles' offensive coordinator in Jalen Hurts' first year as a starter - Hull could get a significant number of early-season carries in what figures to be an RB-by-committee. Still, it's probably best to keep Hull on your bench this week.

With Jelani Woods on IR, none of the Colts' tight ends are worthwhile fantasy options. Leave Granson on the waiver wire.
