How to handle Michael Pittman injury in Week 17 fantasy football

Michael Pittman is on the Colts final injury report for Week 17. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

The Indianapolis Colts have listed wide receiver Michael Pittman as questionable for this week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pittman has been dealing with a concussion, but he was able to practice in full on both Thursday and Friday this week.

Fantasy impact: Michael Pittman (concussion)

Though we don’t have official word that Pittman has cleared the league’s concussion protocol, the fact that he was able to practice in full for two days at the end of the week is about as good of sign as anything sort of official confirmation that he’ll be in uniform on Sunday.

This is a must-win game for the Colts, who are still chasing a playoff berth. However, Pittman probably doesn’t have enough value to merit a roster spot this week in fantasy football. He’s yet to have more than 50 yards or find the end zone since Week 11. T.Y. Hilton has resumed his role as the team’s No. 1 receiver.
