Zach Pascal Outlook – Before 2021
Zach Pascal spent 3 years at Old Dominion where he put up fairy impressive numbers. Unfortunately for him, they weren’t good enough for teams to take a chance on him in the 2017 NFL Draft. He spent time on the Titans and Washington Football Team before getting signed by the Colts.
Pascal will be entering his 4th year in the NFL, and he’s been a depth piece on the Indianapolis Colts roster. The Colts seem to like Pascal after they placed a second-round tender on him. He set career highs last season as he finished with 44 receptions for 629 yards and 5 TDs. The had him at a WR55 finish in fantasy, which is a WR5 in lineups. This would plant him firmly on the bench at best. Will he make a step forward in 2021?
Zach Pascal 2021 Redraft Outlook
With T.Y. Hilton re-signing in Indianapolis, Pascal will remain the WR4 on the depth chart barring injuries. All the receivers in front of him, including Hilton, Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell, all have injury problems and worries, so Pascal should be a guy who’s on most rosters because he could have a real chance of being a WR3 or WR4 in 2021.
With all this being said, Pascal could move farther down the depth chart if the Colts decide to draft a WR in the first 2 days of the draft. If that happens, it’s fair to say that you can confidently drop Pascal and take a chance on a guy with more upside. He’s not a big name by any means in 2021, but he’s a name to keep your eye on.
Zach Pascal’s ADP is #270 overall and #103 among WRs in 1QB PPR formats. His ADP in SuperFlex formats is #310 overall and #103 among WRs. This ADP is to be expected from Pascal since Indianapolis’s QB situation is better, but still not one of the top in the league. He’s also far down the totem pole in a WR room that’s already weak.
In 1QB leagues, players comparable in value to Zach are David Moore, Collin Johnson, Tyrell Williams, DeSean Jackson and Cam Sims. If I’m looking to take a chance on another WR, I’m looking for someone with the highest upside. Collin Johnson and Cam Sims offer that for me, and I’d be seeking out those trades immediately if I’m a Zach Pascal manager, especially Collin Johnson before the draft with all the Trevor Lawrence hype that will surround all Jags players, thus raising their value.
Players with similar value to Pascal in SuperFlex leagues are similar to the players listed above, but the QB differences are Marcus Mariota, Jacoby Brissett and Taylor Heinicke. Looking at this list, I see three QBs who have a solid chance to get playing time in 2021. Mariota and Heinicke would be my top 2 targets in that order if I needed depth at QB in my league. Mariota offers a high rushing upside which could make him a sneaky value. It’s just whether he’ll get on the field or not.
