Strong finish to encouraging '22

Campbell secured six of nine targets for 42 yards and rushed once for 26 yards in the Colts' 32-31 loss to the Texans on Sunday. He also committed a fumble recovered by Indianapolis.

Analysis: Campbell put a strong cap on his first fully healthy season since his rookie 2019 campaign, logging action in all 17 games and putting together a career-best 63-623-3 line through the air that he complemented with 58 rushing yards on five attempts. The fourth-year speedster tied Deon Jackson for the team lead in receptions and paced the Colts in targets on the afternoon, making it a noteworthy afternoon all the way around. Campbell is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, and he could certainly be an intriguing mid-level asset on the open market if he doesn't return to Indianapolis under what will almost certainly be a new coaching staff.

Team-high yardage total in loss

Campbell brought in three of six targets for 52 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Colts' 38-10 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: Campbell led the Colts in receiving yardage thanks almost entirely to a 49-yard grab. The speedster has been blessed with an extended stretch of good health for the first time in his career this season, and he'll look to build on what was his best receiving yardage total since Week 11 in the regular-season finale versus the Texans at home.

Catches two of five targets in loss

Campbell hauled in two of five targets for 19 yards during Monday's 20-3 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Campbell finished second among the Colts wideouts in targets and offensive snaps behind Michael Pittman, but the former failed to make much of a fantasy impact. From Weeks 4 through 13, Campbell totaled 45 receptions on 60 targets for 450 yards and three touchdowns, but he's managed just four receptions on eight targets for 32 yards across the Colts' past two games following their Week 14 bye. The 2019 second-round pick figures to operate as the team's No. 2 wideout again in Week 17, but given his recent performances, he'll likely be a risky fantasy play even in deeper leagues.

Two catches in Week 15 loss

Campbell caught two of four targets for 13 yards in Saturday's 39-36 overtime loss to Minnesota.

Analysis: Campbell tied with Alec Pierce for second on the team with four targets, but Michael Pittman led the way with 10 catches for 60 yards on 14 targets to finish as the only Indianapolis receiver with more than two catches. With an inconsistent role on an offense helmed by Matt Ryan -- who hasn't thrown for 250 yards in a game since Week 6 -- Campbell will remain a risky fantasy option in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Nets 45 yards in blowout loss

Campbell caught four of five targets for 43 yards and had one carry for two yards in Sunday's 54-19 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: Campbell was one the few bright spots for the Colts' passing game in an otherwise forgettable showing from the entire unit. The 2019 second-round pick was able to bounce back from a rough Week 12, but the end results were still middling from a fantasy perspective. Campbell and the Colts are off for Week 14, resuming play against the Vikings on Dec. 18.

Shut down by Steelers

Campbell caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Monday's 24-17 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Of Matt Ryan's 199 passing yards, 159 went to either Michael Pittman or rookie tight end Jelani Woods, and Pittman caught the Colts' lone touchdown pass of the night. Campbell had demonstrated decent chemistry with Ryan prior to this dud, but the 25-year-old wide receiver will remain a hit-or-miss option in Week 13 against Dallas as part of a Colts passing game that's failed to find consistency in 2022.

Returns to full practice

Campbell (illness) practiced fully Friday.

Analysis: Campbell was limited in Thursday's practice, but he returned to full participation Friday. Barring a setback, the 25-year-old wide receiver will take the field Monday against a vulnerable Steelers secondary.

Nov 25, 2022 12:54 PM EST

Logs limited listing Thursday

Campbell (illness) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's walk-through.

Analysis: Campbell has two more chances to return to a full practice ahead of Monday night's game against the Steelers. Assuming he's active for the contest, the wideout will maintain a key role in the Colts' passing attack, which has resulted in Campbell totaling 12 catches on 15 targets for 143 yards and a TD over his last two outings.

Nov 24, 2022 12:58 PM EST

Maintains momentum

Campbell caught five passes for 67 yards on six targets against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: Campbell has been rather busy in Matt Ryan's last four starts, drawing 38 targets and turning them into 29 catches for 270 yards and three touchdowns (76.3 percent catch rate, 7.1 yards per target). So long as Ryan remains the Indianapolis starting quarterback, Campbell might continue to turn a corner in his career trajectory. Hopefully he can keep rolling against Pittsburgh in Week 12.

Posts best yardage of season

Campbell caught seven of nine targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: With Matt Ryan back under center, the fourth-year wideout set a new season high in receiving yards while capping his day with a 35-yard TD grab in the fourth quarter that proved to be the game-winning score. Campbell has already posted career highs in catches (39), yards (373) and TDs (three) across the board this season, largely because he's been able to stay healthy -- his prior career high for games played was only seven, but he has yet to miss a contest in 2022. The whole Colts offense could struggle to make an impact in Week 11 against the Eagles, however.

Limited by Patriots

Campbell recorded two receptions on five targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Patriots. He added one rush for one yard.

Analysis: Campbell finished tied for second on the team in both targets and yards, an indication of how much the Colts' offense struggled in Sunday's loss. In positive news, he's maintained a significant role in the offense, typically finishing second in targets behind Michael Pittman. However, Campbell has managed only four receptions for 58 yards combined in the two games since Sam Ehlinger has taken over as quarterback.

Continues hot streak in Week 8

Campbell caught both of his targets for 43 yards and also recorded a 28-yard carry during Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: After opening the season with just 112 receiving yards through the first five games, Campbell has caught fire over the last three, gathering in 19 of 25 targets for 170 yards and two touchdowns. He also bolstered his Week 8 stat line with his first rush since 2020, which doubled as the team's longest play on the ground. Campbell will look to keep up his hot streak Sunday at New England, whose defense has allowed the 13th-most yards per target (8.5) to opposing wideouts this year.

Nov 1, 2022 4:11 PM EST

Another big effort

Campbell recorded 10 receptions on 12 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Campbell turned in his second consecutive strong performance and led the Colts' receiving corps in targets, receptions and yards. He also accounted for the team's only touchdown of the day on a four-yard catch late in the third quarter. Campbell now has 23 targets across his last two games, and he should the chance to continue to rack up looks in the short areas of the field in the absence of Ashton Dulin (foot).

Season-high effort in win

Campbell secured seven of 11 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 34-27 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Campbell came out of nowhere to generate season-best reception, yardage and target totals. He also was on the receiving end of one of Matt Ryan's trio of touchdown tosses, recording a four-yard scoring grab late in the second quarter for his first visit to the end zone since Week 6 of last season. Campbell's first opportunity to build on the strong all-around effort comes in a Week 7 road matchup against the Titans.

Tallies 22 yards in OT win

Campbell secured two of three targets for 22 yards during the Colts' 12-9 overtime win over the Broncos on Thursday.

Analysis: Campbell racked up a season-high 43 receiving yards during last week's loss to the Titans, but he was less effective in Thursday's low-scoring victory. The 2019 second-rounder hasn't been targeted more than four times in any of the first five games of the season, and he's secured 11 of 15 targets for 112 yards to begin the year.

Oct 7, 2022 10:08 AM EST

Season-high four receptions

Campbell had four receptions for 43 yards on four targets in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: Campbell nearly duplicated his output from the first three games (47 yards) combined. Despite his best game of the season, Campbell played on just 67% of the snaps on offense after playing 77% or more the first three games as the Colts utilized two- and three-tight end sets more frequently. Campbell may continue to have a smaller role in the offense despite his slight increase in production.

Oct 3, 2022 11:56 AM EST

Non-factor again

Campbell started at receiver next to Michael Pittman, but had just two receptions for ten yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

Analysis: Campbell played on 58 of the offense's 71 snaps, outpacing Alec Pierce (32) and Ashton Dulin (18). However, Pierce had five targets in his return from a concussion. Campbell has been almost a non-factor in the offense despite seeing the second most snaps among receivers with just five receptions for 47 yards and no touchdowns through three games. He could be at risk of losing his starting job before too long.

Sep 26, 2022 12:44 PM EST

Wastes expanded opportunity

Campbell did not record a reception on either of his targets in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: With Michael Pittman (hip) and Alec Pierce (concussion) sidelined, Campbell had an excellent opportunity to command additional targets among the Colts' pass catchers. In particular, the fact that Dezmon Patton earned six targets was disheartening for Campbell's future prospects of production. Campbell now has only three only receptions on six targets for 37 yards through two games this season, and he appears to be in danger of losing out further on his role in the offense.

Sep 18, 2022 6:32 PM EST

Just 37 yards receiving in opener

Campbell had three receptions for 37 yards on four targets in Sunday's tie at Houston.

Analysis: Campbell's stats are a little misleading in that he had a 27-yard garbage time reception when both teams were just running out the clock at the end of overtime. Campbell played on 71 of the offense's 92 snaps, but didn't appear to be a big part of the game plan and Matt Ryan appeared to have a better rapport with Ashton Dulin. At least Campbell stayed healthy (he's played just 15 games in three years) and it's just one game, but there's reason for concern.

Sep 12, 2022 9:50 AM EST

Another target-free outing

Campbell started Saturday's preseason win against the Buccaneers, but he wasn't targeted on 13 offensive snaps.

Analysis: While Campbell saw action in all three of the Colts' exhibitions, he only saw two passes comes his way and didn't haul in either of them. He thus enters the regular season with no in-game connections with new starting quarterback Matt Ryan, and Campbell also has ample competition for targets in the form of top wide receiver Michael Pittman and rookie second-round pick Alec Pierce. On top of that, injuries have limited Campbell, a 2019 second-rounder himself, to 15 games and 34 catches through three campaigns.
