Michael Pittman Jr. Reels In Nine Catches In Week 3 Win

Monday, September 25, 11:04 AM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. had another solid outing in the team's 22-19 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens, hauling in nine catches for 77 yards. Pittman Jr. continues to be a favored target of both quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and Anthony Richardson, receiving double-digit targets for the third week in a row with 11. The 25-year-old receiver provides an incredibly safe floor weekly in PPR formats with his target share and has WR1 upside if he can find the end zone in upcoming matchups. He'll face a Los Angeles Rams defense in Week 4 that has been surprisingly stingy to opposing wideouts, but he can confidently be included in lineups for that contest.

George Pickens Leads Steelers Receivers In Week 3

Monday, September 25, 2:04 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens recorded four receptions for 75 yards on six targets in a 23-18 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. Although Pickens didn't repeat the dominant performance he had in Week 2, the 22-year-old still tied for the team lead in targets and led all Steelers in receiving yards. With Kenny Pickett looking much improved on Sunday night, there is reason to believe that Pickens can continue to post solid fantasy production going forward. With Diontae Johnson (hamstring) out for at least the next two games, Pickens should be viewed as a quality WR3 or flex option.
