Michael Pittman Jr. A Safe Option In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 10:55 AM

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.

Brandon Aiyuk Will Play Against Arizona

Friday, September 29, 6:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday and will play on Sunday versus the Cardinals. The 25-year-old began the season by accumulating 11 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the first two weeks. However, he missed Week 3 because of a shoulder injury. But with Deebo Samuel (ribs, knee) questionable versus Arizona, Aiyuk should see extra attention from Brock Purdy in Week 4, making him a must-start in all fantasy formats.
