2024 Season Outlooks

Pittman became the go-to target for Gardner Minshew in 2023. He earned 156 targets and turned them into 109 receptions and 1,110 receiving yards. His 30% target share ranked him among the league leaders. In 2024, his outlook changes with the Colts moving on from Minshew and Anthony Richardson returning to the lineup as the starter. There is more variance in Pittman's profile after the team added Adonai Mitchell at WR in the draft and because it's unknown how Richardson will distribute the football. Pittman is a third-round pick in Fantasy drafts but he has a lower floor than most WRs coming off the board in this range.

A steady career progression as a sure-handed receiver earned Pittman a big extension from the Colts heading into his fifth season. The son of a former bruising running back, Pittman handles a physical, possession role that includes rare volume, as he finished ninth in total targets and fifth in receptions in 2023. A touchdown-per-target rate of just 3.1% as a pro and a modest average depth of target clip the past two seasons have resulted in WR2 outcomes for Pittman. As the likely first read for Anthony Richardson on most dropbacks this season, Pittman enters the season with a stable floor for WR2 production and the upside for a new tier of value. Targeting Pittman after the crop of true WR1 options are taken could prove savvy.
