  • Alec Pierce Proving He Belongs

    Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Alec Pierce had a pair of touchdowns in training camp practice on Tuesday despite being blanketed by All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore in coverage. It's still early this summer, but The Athletic's Zak Keefer thinks Pierce belongs. The rookie out of Cincinnati has impressed the moment he arrived, flashing athleticism and smooth ball skills, and it will only help him in the long run that he's working quite often against Gilmore, a former Defensive Player of the Year. The 22-year-old probably shouldn't be on the radar in standard-sized leagues just yet, especially in a run-heavy Colts offense, but fantasy managers should circle him in rookie-only drafts.

  • Colts Pushing For Alec Pierce To Compete For Starting Spot

    The Indianapolis Colts are pushing rookie wide receiver Alec Pierce to compete for a starting role early on in his first NFL season. Pierce's vertical abilities and versatility bode well for his chances of grabbing a role early on, and his skill set fits well with what the Colts want to do on offense. "Alec (Pierce), one of the things we like about him is he's a very smart guy. He really has learned the offense quickly," head coach Frank Reich said. Pierce will have to compete with guys like Ashton Dulin and Parris Campbell, but the Colts offense could be extremely multiple with Pierce working both outside and in the slot alongside Michael Pittman Jr. With new quarterback Matt Ryan in town, Pierce could certainly make some noise in his rookie campaign for fantasy managers if he wins the No. 2 job.

  • 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.

  • Colts Sign Second-Rounder Alec Pierce

    The Indianapolis Colts signed second-round wide receiver Alec Pierce to his rookie deal on Monday. Pierce's deal is worth $6.6 million and includes a signing bonus around $2 million. The No. 53 overall pick in the draft out of Cincinnati was mostly used as a deep threat in college, but the 6-foot-3, 213-pounder was showcased in the red zone during rookie minicamp last weekend and could be targeted often in the red area by quarterback Matt Ryan in his first NFL season. The 22-year-old may not get a ton of targets in Indy's run-first offense, but Pierce has an opportunity to battle for a starting job opposite Michael Pittman Jr. right away. He could end up being a nice sleeper in dynasty drafts this fall.

  • Alec Pierce Used In Red Zone During Rookie Camp

    Indianapolis Colts second-round wide receiver Alec Pierce was a featured target in the red zone during team drills at rookie camp over the weekend, and he made two eye-opening touchdown catches that showed his ability to use his long frame to his advantage. "It becomes basketball down there," Pierce said of the red zone. "You have to go up and high-point the ball, rebound the ball." The 6-foot-3 rookie pass-catcher could excel deep down the field with veteran quarterback Matt Ryan and in the end zone, but he'll probably be hard to trust on a week-to-week basis in the Colts run-first offense. Pierce is expected to compete for a starting spot opposite Michael Pittman Jr. in his first NFL season.
