  • Alec Pierce Dealing With Minor Foot Ailment

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce (foot) sat out of practice Wednesday with a minor foot issue, but head coach Shane Steichen said "it's nothing serious," and he could have practiced on Wednesday. The team is just being cautious with the second-year wideout early in the offseason. Pierce posted 593 yards and two touchdowns on 41 receptions in the lifeless Colts offense last season, so it was ultimately a decent campaign for the Cincinnati product. With Parris Campbell gone, he could serve as the primary field-stretcher for a combination of quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and No. 4 overall pick Anthony Richardson in 2023. Michael Pittman Jr. should continue to operate as the Colts' No. 1 WR, but Pierce and rookie Josh Downs will battle it out to be the second option in the passing game.

  • Jelani Woods, Josh Downs Dealing With Injuries

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Jelani Woods (hamstring) and rookie wide receiver Josh Downs (knee) are dealing with injuries this week and didn't take part in organized team activities on Thursday, according to head coach Shane Steichen. Neither injury seems particularly serious, so both players should be just fine for training camp this summer. Woods caught 25 passes for 312 yards and three TDs in 15 games (two starts) in his rookie year in 2022, and he could be in line for more playing time alongside fellow tight ends Mo Alie-Cox and Kylen Granson. Downs was a third-rounder this year is likely to operate as receiver depth for the Colts in his rookie season and is unlikely to have much fantasy appeal in single-year leagues.

  • Josh Downs Impressing The Colts

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Josh Downs has been receiving high praise from Colts wide receiver coach Reggie Wayne. "He's the player I think we were missing, A guy who's agile, who's versatile who can win on the option routes. I think he's the right fit for us," says Wayne. The expectation is that Downs is going to compete with Isaiah McKenzie for the starting slot role during camp. The Colts clearly think highly of Downs considering they selected him in the third round. That being said, Downs could end up being an impactful player on this offense from Day 1. The 21-year-old is worth a stash in dynasty leagues as he could very well find himself with a big role on this offense.

Downs, a third-round pick out of North Carolina, is expected to step in as the Colts' starting slot receiver and play alongside starters Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce. Downs is unlikely to be a difference-maker in fantasy in 2023 but he is on the radar as a solid stash in dynasty leagues.
