Player Outlook
McKenzie signed with the Colts this offseason, and he could be the No. 4 receiver in Indianapolis behind Michael Pittman, Alec Pierce and Josh Downs but is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues if he remains in that role. McKenzie spent the past five seasons in Buffalo, and there was some thought that he could have a breakout campaign in 2022. But he managed just 7.9 PPR points per game, and it's hard to expect much more production with the Colts. If McKenzie does well meshing with rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson, add him off the waiver wire. But given his overall body of work, McKenzie is not expected to make much of an impact for Fantasy managers in 2023.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Full go Thursday

    McKenzie (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. The veteran wideout missed Wednesday's practice with a toe injury, but after practicing with no limitations Thursday, it seems as if he's been able to move past the issue. McKenzie has filled a limited offensive role in his first year with Indianapolis, catching 11 of his 14 targets for 82 yards and playing on 14 percent of the team's offensive snaps.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Estimated as DNP on Wednesday

    McKenzie (toe) was listed as a nonparticipant on the Colts' practice estimate Wednesday, James Boyd of The Athletic reports. McKenzie played just five offensive snaps during Sunday's win versus the Buccaneers, and that he may have been nursing a toe injury would be a reasonable explanation for his limited involvement. Indianapolis' injury reports Thursday and Friday will give a better idea of whether he'll be available in Week 13 at Tennessee.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Plays just six snaps on offense

    McKenzie had one carry for three yards and didn't have a target in Sunday's 27-20 win over Tampa Bay. He also returned one punt for 13 yards. McKenzie played just six snaps on offense as he moved back to mostly a special teams role with the Colts' top three receivers healthy.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Four grabs in win

    McKenzie reeled in all four of this targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 10-6 win over the Patriots. McKenzie four receptions on four targets and 31 yards were season-highs in each category. Additionally, the veteran's 46 percent offensive snap share was his highest mark of the 2023 campaign. With that said, McKenzie was unable to take a big leap in his production as fellow wideout Michael Pittman soaked up 12 targets from Gardner Minshew. The 28-year-old McKenzie should continue to stay off the fantasy radar going forward based on his minimal product through 10 games. The Colts enter their Week 11 bye before hosting the Buccaneers on Nov. 26.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Two receptions in win

    McKenzie had two receptions for 12 yards on three targets in Sunday's win at Carolina. He also had three punt returns for an 11-yard average. McKenzie played a season-high 24 snaps on offense with Josh Downs leaving with a knee injury. McKenzie would likely be the starting slot receiver Sunday against the Patriots in Germany if Downs were to miss the game.

    McKenzie had two receptions for 23 yards on two targets and returned two punts for 13 yards in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Takes over kick-return role

    McKenzie had one carry for four yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's win over Tennessee. He returned one punt for five yards and one kickoff for 19 yards. McKenzie was used on a gadget option play in the backfield but otherwise wasn't a factor in the offense. He played on seven of the offense's 66 snaps. His primary role remains in the return game, where he added kickoff-return duties to his punt-return job after the season-ending injury to Dallis Flowers (Achilles).

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Just one reception

    McKenzie had one reception for six yards on three targets in Sunday's overtime loss to the Rams. He also returned one punt for 13 yards. McKenzie played on seven of the offense's 64 snaps as he continues to have a limited role as the fourth receiver.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Records first reception with Indy

    McKenzie had one reception for seven yards on one target in Sunday's win at Houston. He also returned one punt for no gain. McKenzie played just two snaps on offense after only playing special teams in Week 1. McKenzie lost the starting slot receiver role to rookie Josh Downs in preseason, and the former is therefore likely to mostly be used as a punt returner.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Brought back by Indy

    The Colts re-signed McKenzie on Thursday. After initially cutting McKenzie earlier Wednesday, the Colts opted to bring the veteran slot man aboard, likely at a more team-friendly price. As Week 1 approaches, McKenzie will likely vie with rookie Josh Downs for snaps alongside the team's top two receivers, Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce.

  • Isaiah McKenzie: Let go by Indianapolis

    The Colts released McKenzie on Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. The move doesn't come as a total shock, given the lack of guaranteed money on McKenzie's one-year contract. Rookie Josh Downs locked down the No. 3 wideout job for Indianapolis, and he and cornerback Dallis Flowers can handle any return work that might otherwise have gone to McKenzie.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Plays with backups

    McKenzie caught his only target for eight yards in Thursday's 27-13 preseason win over the Eagles. McKenzie appeared to only play with the backups, while rookie Josh Downs (no catches on two targets) took a vast majority of snaps with the first-team offense alongside Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce. If it's the same alignment Week 1 against Jacksonville, it might mean McKenzie is limited to work on returns and perhaps the occasional trick play or jet sweep.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Gets start at slot receiver

    McKenzie drew the start as the No. 3 receiver in Saturday's preseason loss at Buffalo and had three receptions for 20 yards on four targets. McKenzie did draw criticism from his receivers coach for a miscommunication on a route that led to an opening-drive interception, but he was otherwise productive. He's battling rookie Josh Downs for the slot receiver role. The job battle may not be decided until late in the preseason.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Listed as No. 3 receiver

    McKenzie is listed as the No. 3 receiver on the Colts' first unofficial depth chart of the preseason, Raven Moore of the team's official site reports. He's notably listed ahead of rookie Josh Downs, his primary competition for the slot role, though McKenzie getting the No. 3 designation may be in deference to his veteran status. Given the third-round draft capital the Colts invested into him, Downs may still be the frontrunner to win the slot job, but McKenzie could still craft out a meaningful rule even as Indianapolis' No. 4 receiver and punt returner.

  • Colts' Isaiah McKenzie: Faces slot WR competition

    McKenzie will face competition for the starting slot receiver role from 2023 third-round pick Josh Downs, the Indianapolis Star reports. Indianapolis wide receiver coach Reggie Wayne called Downs the best receiver in the 2023 draft class, so that may be an indication he has a head start in the race. The Colts signed McKenzie for just one year and $1.23 million, so it's not a lock he even makes the Week 1 roster. However, the Colts may want to begin the season with a veteran in the slot if Downs has any growing pains in training camp, especially if rookie Anthony Richardson, the fourth overall pick in this year's draft, wins the starting quarterback job over Gardner Minshew.
