Michael Pittman Jr. Not Against Franchise Tag

Tuesday, January 9, 12:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., who is coming off the best season of his career with 109 catches, 1,152 yards and four touchdowns, is set to enter free agency for the first time in his career in March. His 109 receptions are tied with Marvin Harrison for the fourth-most in franchise history, and they were also the fifth-most in the NFL in 2023. While Pittman said he's loved his time in Indianapolis, he's intent on testing the open market for the first time in his career. When asked about the possibility of the Colts putting the franchise tag on him to limit his free-agent options, Pittman said, "The franchise tag, I don't think anybody would be displeased with $23 million. The franchise tag is almost like a tag of respect because you get paid like the top five of your position." Regardless of where the 26-year-old ends up in 2024, he's going to be highly coveted in fantasy drafts this fall.

Jameson Williams Low On DFS Radar On Sunday

Thursday, January 18, 2:40 PM

Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams came back from an ankle injury to face the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Wild Card Round last week, but he caught just two passes for 19 yards. The speedster has seen three or fewer targets in ten of his 13 games this year, meaning he's clearly not a trustworthy fantasy or DFS option. However, he is just $3,600 for DraftKings full-slate contests, so DFS gamers paying up for expensive players elsewhere can consider him a boom-or-bust dart throw against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that surrendered the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers during the regular season. Just don't be surprised if he's in for another quiet day.
