Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. on Saturday, Jan. 2, cleared the league's concussion protocol and will be available to play Sunday in Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Pittman gets a green light in a must-win game for Indy, but be wary of placing too much fantasy trust in the rookie as he's failed to reach double-digit fantasy points in each of his last five games.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, but is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Pittman likely will be on the field if he is cleared by the doctors to play. He has recorded only two receptions in three of his last five games, so fantasy players likely will be able to find better options for their lineups.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Pittman appears to be on track to play in the finale and likely will see a few targets against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but can be benched if better options are available.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Pittman still needs to be cleared by doctors before he can play but appears to have a chance to on the field in Week 17. He has been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games but has failed to post 50 yards in any of those games. He will have a favorable matchup this week but can be benched if better options are available.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. ended up with three receptions for 38 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Pittman was outperformed by Zach Pascal and T.Y. Hilton in this one, but the future is bright for the rookie. He should scoot up draft boards heading into 2021. The Colts finish up with the Jaguars in Week 17.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught two passes for 19 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 15. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Pittman played well earlier in the season but has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last four games. He probably will see a handful of targets next week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. pulled in two of his five targets for 42 yards and added a three-yard carry in Week 14 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: With Indianapolis running for 212 yards and Philip Rivers only attempting 28 passes, there wasn't much left for the rookie or a lot of reason to feed him the ball, especially with T.Y. Hilton recapturing his old form recently. There's a decent chance Pittman will be fantasy-relevant again before the season is over, but it may not happen if the running game and Hilton keep it up in Week 15 against the Houston Texans - which they should. Consider him a decent WR4 in that matchup.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught two of his nine targets for 28 yards in a 45-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 12.
Huddle Up: After a solid three-game stretch, the rookie turned in a quiet performance. The silver lining is that he saw a season-high nine targets, and his role in the offense continues to grow. Pittman is worth rostering as a depth piece.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. caught three passes for 66 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: Pittman opened the scoring for Indy on a simple crosser that ruptured into a 45-yard touchdown but did little else the rest of the day. Pittman has strung together a nice three-game run, highlighted by his first 100-yard performance against the Titans, which he'll face again this week. He has WR3/flex value.

Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. had seven receptions for 101 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. He also carried once for 21 yards.
Huddle Up: Pittman's emergence over the last two games is an encouraging sign for a team that hasn't gotten a lot of production out of its receivers this season, most notably T.Y. Hilton. Pittman's eight targets were three more than fellow WRs Hilton and Zach Pascal, which is another step in the right direction. If Pittman is still on waivers he's someone to scoop up as a possible WR3/flex play down the stretch.
