Hamilton, playing in his first NFL game, caught both of his targets, including a late score in what was otherwise an awful effort by Pittsburgh. If playing behind the likes of Antonio Brown, Sammie Coates and what seems like a cast of thousands isn't enough to discourage fantasy owners, the loss of Ben Roethlisberger (knee), even if only for a few weeks, should have them looking elsewhere for receiver help.
Hamilton was promoted to Pittsburgh's active roster on Saturday.
Hamilton was promoted from the practice squad as a result of injuries to the Steelers wideout corps. He'll likely be the No. 4 or No. 5 option on Sunday, and shouldn't be expected to have much of an impact on the offense.
Hamilton caught four passes for 44 yards against the Eagles on Thursday.
Targeted a team-high seven times, Hamilton also led the Steelers in receptions and yardage. Pittsburgh has several receivers trying to earn a roster spot behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton, and Hamilton's performance may have drawn him even with Eli Rogers (four catches for 39 yards), although they are both still behind Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey.
