Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 After completely disappearing in week four against the Rams, Kirk came back to life and saw a 17.9% target share in week five. While this only turned into 39 total receiving yards, it is encouraging to see Kirk's involvement move back up. With that being said, there's no predictability with the other receiving weapons in this offense after Hopkins. With the injury to Maxx Williams, we could see Kirk's target share increase slightly, but that's too much of a risk to take in our starting lineups this week. Kirk is nothing more than a low-end FLEX play that has the possibility of completely falling flat.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
It's been fun to watch Pittman assert himself as the Colts' lead receiver. His 42-yard TD catch against the Ravens on Monday night was a beauty, with Pittman reaching back to pluck an underthrown ball from over the head of a defender who was interfering with him at the time, then keeping his balance and fighting off a tackle attempt as he navigated the final 10 yards to the end zone. Over his last four games, Pittman has averaged 9.8 targets, 6.5 receptions and 84.8 yards. T.Y. Hilton is due back from a neck injury soon, but make no mistake: Pittman is the main man in this WR corps now. He checks in at WR26 in the Week 6 rankings. Pittman's price is up to $5,500 on DraftKings, but he's still a value. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Pittman Jr had 7 targets, 6 receptions, 89 yards, and 1 TD against the Ravens on MNF. He should be a WR3 against the Texans 6th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
