Steelers' James Washington: Two catches in preseason opener
Washington caught two passes for 44 yards in Thursday's 31-14 preseason win over the Eagles.
The second-round draft pick was targeted a total of four times, from both Josh Dobbs and Mason Rudolph, including a 35-yard connection from the latter to set up a Chris Boswell field goal. The Steelers have a plethora of offensive weapons, so Washington's greatest challenge this season may be getting enough touches. Still, Pittsburgh's third wide receiver spot -- where Washington is slated to play -- has been productive over the past five seasons, averaging 37 receptions for 588 yards and six touchdowns, suggesting he could be a nice middle-to-late-round fantasy option.
