Campbell had an injury-plagued rookie season. He played just seven games, catching 18 passes for 127 yards. Campbell will try to put his rookie season behind him and emerge as a top target in the Colts offense this season. He should compete for prominent role in the Colts offense. Campbell is a real speed burner than can get by defenders in a hurry. He runs good routes and can turn a short pass into a big play. He lacks a little physicality and might need to add some strength to be a more complete player.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Many had high hopes for Campbell last year but that didn't pan out. He is more of a wild card this year after having all sorts of injury issues his rookie year. He might be worth a late-round grab but that is about it. He is likely up and down for fantasy teams. Expect around 40 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.
Coming into his rookie season Parris Campbell should have an immediate role in the Colts offense. With T.Y. Hiltonthe number one and playing on the outside, Campbell and free-agent addition Devin Funchess should have a dual role in the slot.At 6 and 205 pounds, Campbell is as big of a target as Funchess and Ebron. He will be unlikely to produce in the red zone the way they could either. However, that is not what the Colts need, they need an underneath guy who theycan trust to get first downs.In his senior season at Ohio State Campbell was just this for Dwayne Haskins. In 14 games he caught 90 passes for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns. He is ideally suited to be a slot receiver in the NFL. While this is not as conducive to touchdown production, he can still have a solid fantasy career as a possession wide receiver. Jarvis Landry, Golden Tate and a late-career Larry Fitzgerald have all found success in this role and if he works hard, Campbell could do the same.As for this season, as good as the Indianapolis offense will be, this may not be the year to expect a stellar performance from him. As stated, the Colts have Hilton, Ebron, and Funchess. Add inNyheim Hines and the return of Jack Doyle to the passing game, as well as the potential for increased usage of Marlon Mack, and the opportunity for Parris Campbell in 2019 is limited. That is especially the case now that Luck has retired. With Jacoby Brissett under center, there are a lot of questions marks surrounding the entire Colts offense and that includes Campbell.In dynasty leagues, he is a solid pick in the late first or early second round. In redraft leagues, he is more of a last round flier, or preferably a waiver addition if someone gets hurt in Indianapolis. Otherwise, dont waste a pick in drafting him this season. But watch out for him next season.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (foot) said that he's 100 percent healthy heading into the 2020 season and has been for several months. Campbell played in just seven games (three starts) in his rookie season because of injuries, ultimately finishing with 18 receptions, 127 receiving yards and one touchdown. The second-round selection should see most of his snaps out of the slot in 2020 with Chester Rogers out of the picture, and the second-year wideout could be an excellent late-round value pick with Philip Rivers looking to him underneath now. But he'll obviously need to stay healthy in order to do so.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that wide receiver Parris Campbell will play more in the slot this season with the team wanting to move him around. "Im super pumped about Parris and his upside," Reich said. Campbell battle a handful of injuries in his rookie season, and he wound up playing in only seven games (three starts). The 22-year-old reeled in 18 catches for 127 yards and one touchdown in his first season. However, he'll start in three-wide sets with T.Y. Hilton and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. and has big-time upside with Philip Rivers now at quarterback in Indy. Campbell is an excellent value pick late in drafts as a second-year sleeper if he can stay healthy in 2020.
