Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) will have his 21-day practice window opened following the conclusion of Week 4, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. At any point when a player is eligible to return from the PUP list, the team can trigger their practice window, giving them 21 days to activate the player or rule the player out for the rest of the season. Assuming the Colts don't want to sideline Taylor for the year, it's looking like he'll return sometime over the next three weeks. Rapoport notes that Taylor is "fully healthy," which means he could be back sooner rather than later. He also writes that "there have been no recent trade talks between the Colts and other teams" surrounding Taylor, who voiced his displeasure with ownership and requested a trade this past summer.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Shane Steichen said that rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson (concussion) will start in Week 4 on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Richardson suffered a concussion in Week 2 and was held out of the Week 3 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens. However, the fourth overall pick in this year's draft cleared the concussion protocol this week and is good to return to a starting role, pushing Gardner Minshew back to the bench. The 21-year-old is going to need to make improvements as a passer, but he's already a high-end rusher at the QB position and will have QB1 upside most weeks, including this weekend in his return against the Rams.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. is coming off another strong performance in Week 3, in which he caught nine passes for 77 yards. Pittman Jr. has been the No. 1 option in this Colts passing attack, receiving over ten targets a week in each of his first three games. The third-year-receiver will face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4, a secondary that has allowed an average of only 181 passing yards this season, good for seventh best in the league. Despite the tougher matchup, Pittman Jr.'s target share sets him up as a solid PPR WR2 option with a slightly lower ceiling than in previous weeks.

New York Giants wide receiver Parris Campbell leads the team in receptions (11) among the wide receiver position this season but isn't gathering the yards (47) needed to be fantasy-relevant. All of his work has been at or near the line of scrimmage. The longest catch for the ex-Colt has gone for just nine yards. The entire Giants' passing game has been a mess and the coaches may begin looking elsewhere for production. Second-year receiver Wan'Dale Robinson saw his first action of the season in Week 3 and earned five targets on just 11 snaps. His playing time could cut into Campbell's snaps. Campbell should remain on the waiver wire across all non-Dynasty fantasy football formats.

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) appears ready to return from the PUP list, according to ESPN's Stephen Holder. The 24-year-old was placed on the PUP list ahead of Week 1 due to an ankle issue. He reportedly looks great and has been moving around well lately. It certainly appears that Taylor is ready to get back on the field. He won't be eligible to return until Week 5, so that means at least one more week of Zack Moss as the starter. However, Taylor also requested a trade before being placed on the PUP list. It's unclear if he has any intentions of suiting up for the Colts again. Taylor physically appears ready to play, but who knows when he'll actually suit up again.
