Michael Pittman Jr. Note

Pittman has a 28.4% Target share and a 27.1% air-yard share with 1.96 YPRR. If we're staying on the train and riding with the biggest surprises of the 2023 season so far, Pittman has to be among them. He is the WR12 in fantasy. Richardson being a better passer than many gave him credit for in the predraft process has helped fuel this production. The Rams have utilized zone coverage on 52-56% of their corner's snaps. Against zone, Pittman's Target share has increased to 28.6%, and his first read share has climbed from 36.3% to an insane 41.2%. Pittman will run about 75% of his routes against Ahkello Witherspoon (38.5% catch rate and 22.0 passer rating) and Derion Kendrick (40% catch rate and 70.1 passer rating). Week 4 Positional Value: WR2

Josh Downs Note

Downs has played solidly as Indy's starting slot. He has a 19.0% Target share with 1.38 YPRR and a 20% first-read share. Against zone coverage this season, all of those numbers have dipped. Against off-coverage, Downs has a 16.9% Target share with 1.1 YPRR and a 15.7% first-read share. This isn't an encouraging trend. The passing attack has condensed around Pittman when the team has seen zone. Downs will match up Cobie Durant this week (71.4% catch rate and 101.5 passer rating). Downs has only one less red zone target (three) than the team leader Pittman (four). Week 4 Positional Value: WR4/5
