Indianapolis Colts WR Josh Downs had at least four receptions and at least six targets in six of his first eight games, but after suffering a knee injury in Week 9, he had three or fewer receptions in six of his final eight games and had three targets or less five times in that span.
Huddle Up: Although Downs was able to play through the injury, his production suffered a noticeable decline. He should be healthy heading into 2024, but the Colts did add Adonai Mitchell in the draft. Despite the potential he showed as a rookie, Downs is probably no more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.

Indianapolis Colts WR Josh Downs said he has been working on improving his route running and hopes for a big jump in play this upcoming season since he will understand the offense better.
Huddle Up: Downs posted 771 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie season but could earn a bigger role in the offense if he improves his play. He likely will be the slot receiver for the Colts this upcoming season but may not be more than a No. 4 receiver in some leagues.
