Michael Pittman Jr.
WR - IND
This Week Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
All around complete wide receiver with great size for the position. Long strides and long arms, which show up in his effect on the downfield passing game. Good route runner and controls his body well through breaks. Used all over the field at USC, so has a wide variety of route combinations on tape. Used everywhere from screens to curls to Go routes and Posts. Not overtly shifty at the LOS, but possesses enough agility and short area quickness to keep defenders on their toes. Phenomenal hands in the receiving game. Strong at the catch point and able to bring down almost anything in his catch radius. Natural receiver and secures the ball quickly after the reception. Great in contested situations due to his size. Boxes out defenders well downfield and uses his body to shield the ball. Defenders don't have long enough arms to reach around or above him to try to knock the ball out when he boxes out. Good in after the catch situations too though. Fluid runner and has enough burst to be able to take a 5 yard slant or curl and turn up field and pick up extra yardage. Big enough to drag defenders along too. Quick though and able to take short passes and break a couple of tackles and house it. Incredible deep ball tracking ability. Always able to find the ball in the air and locate where it's going to be coming down where he can high point the ball. His best trait. Good speed for his size and absolutely has enough to succeed in the NFL. Overall, a great talent at the WR position who set CFB on fire this year with a few different QBs. Underrated and will absolutely be a gem for a NFL team. Smart WR who understands how to locate soft spots in zones and understands how to dip in and out of inside/outside releases to gain leverage. Mature WR and will absolutely make an impact at the next level.

Michael Pittman Jr. picks up 90 receiving yards in loss
Michael Pittman caught five of 10 targets for a team-high 90 yards and added an 11-yard carry in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills.
Pittman was lead the Colts receivers in targets on Saturday as QB Philip Rivers looked for the rookie second-round pick often. Look for Pittman to have a bigger role in 2021 and could be a fantasy sleeper if he can stay healthy.
