Isaiah McKenzie Joining Giants

The New York Giants have agreed to a deal with wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie on Tuesday. The details of the deal are unknown, but it's assumed to be a cheap one-year deal. The 28-year-old is looking for a bounce-back campaign after a quiet season with the Indianapolis Colts in 2023. McKenzie has been more of a depth player throughout most of his career. However, he was able to make some noise with the Buffalo Bills in 2022. That season, McKenzie finished with 42 receptions for 423 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games. The expectation is that McKenzie will be more of a depth option, so his fantasy value will probably be limited next season.

Colts Suspend Isaiah McKenzie, Tony Brown For Rest Of Season

The Indianapolis Colts are suspending wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie and cornerback Tony Brown for the remainder of the 2023 season for "conduct detrimental to the team," according to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team. McKenzie caught just 11 passes for 82 yards in 13 games this year. Brown has appeared in 12 games, logging ten tackles, one forced fumble, and one interception. Neither player is a key contributor on offense or defense, but the Colts will have to fill their shoes with other depth options.

Isaiah McKenzie Inactive For Week 15

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie (coach's decision) is a healthy scratch for Week 15 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Saturday represents the first time this season that McKenzie is inactive. Through his previous 13 games, he totaled 11 catches and 82 receiving yards. Given the 28-year-old's depth role, his absence has no fantasy implications. Michael Pittman Jr. remains the Colts' only must-start receiver with the fantasy playoffs upon us.

Isaiah McKenzie Practices In Full

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie (toe) went from not practicing at all with the team on Wednesday to being a full participant in Thursday's session. If he puts in another full practice day on Friday, he should be fine to play in Week 13 against the Titans in Tennessee. The 28-year-old pass-catcher shouldn't be in any starting fantasy, though, in what should be more of a defensive division battle. Besides, McKenzie hasn't had a very big role in the Colts' offense in 2023. The former Georgia Bulldog is essentially the No. 4 wideout behind Michael Pittman Jr., rookie Josh Downs and Alec Pierce. McKenzie hasn't scored and has only 11 catches (14 targets) for 82 yards in 11 games. He hasn't caught a single pass in five separate games.

Isaiah McKenzie Doesn't Practice On Wednesday

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. The veteran wideout will look to upgrade his participation on Thursday or Friday as the Colts prepare to take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 13. McKenzie has not been a major part of the Indy offense in Week 13, although he has been active on special teams.

Isaiah McKenzie Signs With The Colts

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie has re-signed with the team after being released earlier in the day on Wednesday. The veteran wideout signed with the Colts in the offseason and was battling with rookie Josh Downs for the Colts' starting slot role during camp. After McKenzie was initially released it appeared that Downs had locked up the starting spot but that may not be the case anymore. McKenzie offers some value on special teams but Downs offers more upside as receiver. The 28-year-old wideout posted the best season of his career last year with the Bills when he snagged 42 balls for 423 yards and four touchdowns to go along with nine carries for 55 yards and another score.

Isaiah McKenzie Released By Colts

Veteran wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday. He looked to have made the roster after Tuesday's roster cutdown but is headed to waivers just a day later. McKenzie will likely draw interest from other organizations, but it's tough to see a path toward fantasy relevance for the 28-year-old who has failed to make a big impact since entering the NFL in 2017. After this move, the Colts have Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce, and Josh Downs as the only active wide receivers on the roster. That said, the team will likely look to add someone as the waiver process plays out.
