I still believe in the talent of Tyreek Hill, and while Tua is no doubt a downgrade from Patrick Mahomes, I'm not down on Tua. Hill seems a bit over the top in his newfound love for Tua (receivers, am I right?), but the new head coach seems like a smart guy. Get Hill in space and let him do his thing.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. May Thrive With Matt Ryan

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. had a breakout season in 2021, finishing with 88 catches for 1,082 yards and six touchdowns. While those numbers are impressive, some believe the wideout will have an even finer year now that Matt Ryan is on the roster, with an NFL scout stating, "there's no question in my mind that a better quarterback is going to get Pittman the ball more often." Although a lot of the playbook is designed to keep Jonathan Taylor involved, Pittman still has an excellent chance to be a more productive fantasy option with Ryan under center throughout the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. A Fan Of Matt Ryan

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., who finished last year 18th in the NFL in receiving yards and 18th in catches, is a huge fan of new quarterback Matt Ryan. Pittman has been very impressed with the ball placement of Ryan, and the new signal-caller should help Pittman achieve his 2022 goal of proving that he's a true No. 1 receiver in the league. "Working on route discipline," Pittman said of his main area for improvement. "Sometimes you just go out there and start playing football. Yes, I can make plays like that but you want to stay on QB timing because it helps everybody else flow so I'm really working on that." The 24-year-old third-year wideout is being ranked as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 heading into fall fantasy drafts, and he should see an uptick in production if he continues to gain chemistry with Ryan in training camp.

  • Alec Pierce The Front-Runner To Be WR2 In Indianapolis

    Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Alec Pierce appears to be in the lead for the second starting receiver role opposite Michael Pittman Jr. heading into training camp. Kevin Hickey of Colts Wire stated, "The No. 52 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft should be competing for a starting role right away. In fact, the starting role opposite Michael Pittman Jr. is likely Pierce's to lose going into training camp. It may take some time before his production catches up simply given the learning curve for rookie wide receivers, but Pierce should be competing for the second-most targets in the offense right off the bat." The obvious (and perhaps only) competition for this starting role would be wide receiver Parris Campbell, who has been plagued by injuries over his three years in the league. There were a total of seven wide receivers selected in Round 2 of the NFL draft, and while the 22-year-old Pierce may not flash the upside of others he could realistically win the most snaps among all of them in 2021.
