Michael Pittman Jr. Held Out Of Thursday's Practice

Thursday, May 30, 4:30 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) did not participate in Thursday's OTA practice, but Joel A. Erickson of Indy Star said it was for precautionary reasons. Pittman banged knees with a defender last week and limped off the field, but he is expected to be "fine". The former second-round pick has posted at least 88 receptions, 925 yards, and four touchdowns over the last three seasons, but he'll face more target competition this year. The Colts selected Adonai Mitchell in the second round of the 2024 NFL Draft, and 2023 third-rounder Josh Downs is expected to have an expanded role. All that said, Pittman should remain the WR1 for Anthony Richardson and post at least low-end WR2 numbers in his fifth NFL campaign.

Brandon Aiyuk Making News With Latest Social Media Post

Sunday, July 7, 9:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk posted a picture of a Washington Commanders' practice session on the social media platform TikTok. The wideout reportedly wants to remain in San Francisco, although he wants to be paid. However, if both sides can't reach an agreement on a new deal, Aiyuk has been vocal about his desire to play in Washington or Pittsburgh. This isn't the first time he has used social media to keep himself in the news. But considering Aiyuk amassed 1,342 receiving yards and seven touchdowns off 75 catches in 2023-24, his fantasy stock is higher than ever. It could increase even more with a move to the Steelers or Commanders, where he would likely be considered the No. 1 wideout on the depth chart.
