Juszczyk's strong showing as a blocker and as a pass catcher earned him his first career Pro Bowl nod in 2016. He was also named First-Team All-Pro according to Pro Football Focus, grading out as the league's top fullback. Juszczyk was a fixture in the
The Pro Bowl fullback had his best fantasy day of the season Sunday as he reached pay dirt for the first time in 2016. That said, his fourth-quarter rushing touchdown was just his fifth carry of the entire season, so it was a bit of an aberration to see him get the ball in the red zone. He has shown to be valuable as a pass catcher, however. In fact, Juszczyk is tied with Kamar Aiken for fifth on the team in targets with 47. Juszczyk will finish out his third NFL season Sunday against the Bengals on the road.
Juszczyk nabbed three of four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Eagles.
None of Juszczyk's receptions went for more than 10 yards, but it was still a nice little game for the fullback. There's not enough there to warrant much fantasy consideration, especially with just one red-zone target since the Week 8 bye, but the Ivy-League product has been impressive as of late by fullback standards. He's caught three passes in four of his last five games.
Though Juszczyk's role is primarily as a blocker, he remains a reliable pass-catching option out of the backfield when his number is called. He's caught 23 of the 31 passes thrown in his direction this season, which gives him the best catch rate of any Raven with 20 or more targets. Juszczyk is reliable when called upon, but his ceiling remains low given that he can only realistically be relied upon to see a handful of targets in a given game, and very few of those looks are beyond the line of scrimmage.
Juszczyk caught six passes for 56 yards on seven targets in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.
Juszczyk does get an unusual number of touches for a fullback, but this was a rarity even by his standards. He only caught four passes through the first three weeks of the season, and he still has just one carry all year.
