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

Michael Pittman Jr. quiet in Week 4

Michael Pittman Jr. caught one of his five targets for 15 yards and added a two-point conversion catch in a 29-23 overtime loss to the Rams in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

Pittman was quiet in the loss, although his five targets tied for the team lead. Rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson spread the ball around in the contest and only wound up completing 11 passes, which capped all of the passing attack's upside. Pittman will be a WR2 in Week 5 in a plus matchup against the Titans.
