Indianapolis Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. posted two receptions for 35 yards on three targets and he ran once for three yards in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Pittman will now have to share the load with T.Y. Hilton, who was back from a neck injury, although he did leave with a quad ailment. Pittman was operating as the No. 1 wideout in Hilton's absence, but the latter had four grabs for 80 yards on four targets, affecting Pittman's volume. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in Week 7 at San Francisco.
