With T.Y. Hilton ruled out for the Indianapolis Colts' Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders, Jacoby Brissett will likely have to find a new go-to target. The early returns haven't been positive, as the Colts are trailing, 14-7, midway through the first quarter.

Hilton entered the week with a 27 percent target share, the ninth-highest mark in the NFL, so his absence could create some opportunities for Colts' skill-position players, like Parris Campbell.

Brissett is just 1-of-5 for five yards and one TD, and Campbell has yet to catch a pass, though he has seen one target. Still, with Indianapolis trailing early, the Colts could be forced to go to the air, which would be a positive for Campbell's fantasy outlook.

The rookie Campbell has blazing speed (4.32 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine), so he's a natural fit to replace Hilton as Indianapolis' deep threat in Week 4.

Whether or not Campbell will turn this new opportunity into production is anyone's guess, but he certainly has a chance to be fantasy viable as long as Hilton remains sidelined.
