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.

Signing with Colts' practice squad

November 11, 2019
Cain cleared waivers and has signed with the Colts' practice squad, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
It was first a surprise that the promising 23-year-old was waived last week, and it's even more suspicious that he wasn't claimed by any of the 31 other NFL teams. Regardless, Cain is now back with the Colts, though it's possible another team could sign him off the practice squad.

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.
