Steelers' James Washington: Moves up depth chart
After turning in an impressive preseason, it was somewhat surprising that Washington ranked a distant fourth among the Steelers' wideouts in the Week 1 tie with the Browns with 11 offensive snaps, finishing behind Antonio Brown (83), JuJu Smith-Schuster (63) and Hunter (51). The rookie second-round pick will move up a run on the depth chart, however, after Hunter failed to make an impact with his ample workload in Week 1, as the 27-year-old reeled in only one of five targets for six yards. Brown and Smith-Schuster remain the clear-cut starters and are likely to dominate the Steelers' target share most weeks, but there could still be room in the team's passing attack for Washington to make a semi-regular impact, particularly against vulnerable secondaries like the Chiefs'.
