  • Ashton Dulin and Parris Campbell have been thrust into the fantasy football spotlight for NFL Week 2 following news that Colts starting wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will miss Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a quad injury.
  • Updated fantasy football rankings and analysis for Week 2 suggest that one of these wide receivers has more upside, while the other is a safer, high-floor option.
  • Continue reading to see how fantasy football players should approach Ashton Dulin and Parris Campbell for Sunday's Week 2 slate.

Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman (quad) was downgraded to out on Saturday prior to Indianapolis’ Week 2 matchup against the Jaguars.

Pittman is only in his third year in the NFL, but he’s already established himself as one of the game’s best receivers. In his first two seasons in the league, the former USC star amassed 128 catches for 1,585 yards with seven touchdowns.

Last week against the Texans, he notched nine receptions (13 targets) for 121 yards and a touchdown.

There are a number of players on the Colts who could see increased targets in Pittman’s absence. Parris Campbell and Ashton Dulin are the prime WRs to keep an eye on, while tight end Mo Alie-Cox and RB Nyheim Hines are other players to monitor.

Updated Ashton Dulin Fantasy Football Ranking

The WR offering the most upside due to Pittman’s injury is Ashton Dulin, who jumps all the way up to WR46 following the news. He’s a quality boom-or-bust option as a WR4, providing the most value for a team that is a decent underdog and willing to take a risk at the position.

Parris Campbell is likely to lead the team in targets, and he’s the safest option to play. He is assured to get a solid portion of the targets from quarterback Matt Ryan.

Speaking of Ryan, he’s now a low-end QB2 who doesn’t have much upside.

Nyheim Hines could also see an increased role, and he’s up to RB42. As always with Hines, he’s best-suited for PPR leagues.

Mo Alie-Cox also gets a boost as he may now be Ryan’s most trusted red zone target. He’s another boom-or-bust player and is my TE30.
