Pitts was hounded in the red zone last season in no small part due to seeing the bulk of the coverage from defenders, leading to RB Cordarrelle Patterson being the go-to red zone weapon for the Falcons.
Atlanta could feed Pitts more in the red zone while using Patterson to draw coverage. This will open the Falcons offense up more and likely result in more TDs for Pitts this season.
K. Pitts Receptions 2022 Reg. Season
- Over 72.5 Receptions -115
- Under 72.5 Receptions -115
Pitts is projected to see 75 receptions this season after getting 68 last season. Sportsbooks are split on these NFL odds surprisingly.
Pitts is likely to be a bigger part of the Falcons’ offense going forward but how much more is the question.
Patterson saw 52 receptions off of 69 targets last season, WR Russell Gage saw 66 receptions off of 94 targets, and WR Olamide Zacheaus saw 31 receptions off of 53 targets. Pitts led the team in targets and is projected to see more targets going forward.
Taking the Over on Pitts’ receptions is likely a winning bet based on the projected targets going forward.
