2019 Fantasy Outlook
Cain tore his ACL during his first preseason game and subsequently missed the 2018 season. His status for 2019 remains tentative, as the 22-year-old isn't expected to be at full strength until mid-way through the campaign, according to GM Chris Ballard. The team that the 2018 sixth-rounder will ultimately rejoin likely will have better pass-catching depth, though injuries to teammates may take a toll by the time he's actually ready to play in a game.

Cutting and sprinting at OTAs

Knee - ACL
May 30, 2019
Cain (knee) has been sprinting, cutting and running routes, giving him a chance to be ready for the start of training camp, Zak Keeper of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Both player and team have hinted at a cautious approach to rehab throughout the offseason, with GM Chris Ballard even suggesting that Cain may not be his usual self until midway through the 2019 campaign. His progress seems to be moving along a bit faster than anticipated as the young wideout works his way back from the ACL tear he suffered Aug. 9. Cain will be 13 months removed from the injury by Week 1, but there's no assurance of a significant role even if he's ready to play. A repeat of his 2018 bid for a starting role will be tricky, as the Colts now have Devin Funchess, Zach Pascal and second-round pick Parris Campbell competing for roles behind top wideout T.Y. Hilton.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Like the departed Donte Moncrief, who left Indianapolis in free agency this offseason, Cain stands tall at 6-foot-2 and ran the 40-yard dash in the low 4.4s. However, the sixth-round rookie isn't considered as complete of a receiver as Moncrief and even has a reputation of being nothing more than a straight-line speedster. With that said, Cain instantly popped up on the fantasy radar given the potential upside of an Andrew Luck-led offense. The rookie drew rave reviews early in training camp, but a torn ACL in the first week of the preseason brought an immediate end to his campaign.
