1Durability, durability, durability
Parris Campbell has missed 34 of 49 games since the Colts drafted him in the third round in 2019. He’s not yet in Kevin White territory, as his age suggests his prime years await. That said, Campbell’s floor remains quite low, while his ceiling is deceptively high. Much of his fantasy fate hinges on whether he can stay on the field.
2X-factor: Alec Pierce
Rookie Alec Pierce has a good shot at claiming the No. 2 WR job. That said, a strong camp from Campbell would put the veteran receiver in position to push Pierce for at least a co-share of Matt Ryan’s targets, if not more. The fact is, we don’t know how good either of them can be in 2022. But we do know both are talented. Campbell can push for streamable fantasy value if he exits camp ahead of Pierce on the depth chart.
3Optimal upside rivaling Michael Pittman Jr.’s?
It might seem strange to call Campbell a breakout candidate. But there’s a narrow path for top-28 production. He’s the Colts’ quickest and fastest receiver, and Ryan is not a stranger to heavily targeting WR duos. Pittman is the known commodity, but on paper (and on tape), Campbell remains a gifted fantasy football player. Assuming the Colts and Ryan remain invested in him (and for now, they are), Campbell could achieve his optimal ceiling as a weekly fantasy starter.
