The Indianapolis Colts will be making a game-time decision as to whether or not rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman will play Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. Pittman suffered a toe injury in practice this week. He’s now officially listed as questionable.

Fantasy impact: WR Michael Pittman injury

A second-round pick out of USC, Pittman’s impact was limited last week against the Jaguars. He caught two passes for 10 yards, working as the team’s third and fourth receiver. He could see more work this week, if he’s healthy enough to play, as the Colts will be without tight end Jack Doyle and expected to be in a shootout against Minnesota. That said, his fantasy impact was likely minimal.

It does mean that T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell will see even more work this week, giving their fantasy value an extra nudge. Both saw nine targets last week, and are are good values in DraftKings leagues this week ($5,700 for Hilton and just $4,500 for Campbell.) Zach Pascal could see more work in three receiver sets, but probably not enough to be worth consideration for your lineups.
