2019 Outlook: James Washington

James Washington has a big opportunity in front of him this season with Antonio Brown gone, and Washington is a sleeper to target with a late-round pick in all formats. The Steelers have to replace Brown's production from 2018, which was 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns on 168 targets. Washington should be the top candidate to fill the starting spot opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster, but he will face competition from Donte Moncrief and Diontae Johnson. We expect Washington to win the job, but he had a disappointing rookie campaign in 2018 with 16 catches for 217 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets. Now, it was hard to find targets behind Brown and Smith-Schuster, but there's a big opening now. And the Steelers led the NFL in pass attempts last year with Ben Roethlisberger, so Washington should have the chance to help Fantasy players in a big way. He's a potential sophomore sensation in 2019.
