  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Tallies 23 receiving yards

    Gentry secured his lone target for 23 yards during the Steelers' 28-14 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

    Gentry had a consistent snap share for most of the 2022 season, but he racked up double-digit receiving yards on just three occasions. Over his 17 appearances, he secured 19 of 23 targets for 132 yards. The 26-year-old is slated to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, and it's possible he seeks out a team in which he's able to carve out a larger role.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Outpaces Freiermuth in snaps

    Gentry secured his lone target for four yards during the Steelers' 24-16 win over Carolina on Sunday.

    Although Gentry had minimal fantasy production during Sunday's victory, he was on the field for 62 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps, which outpaced fellow tight end Pat Freiermuth, who played 56 percent of the snaps. Gentry has had fairly consistent playing time this year but hasn't been very involved in the passing game, as he's secured just nine of 12 targets for 23 yards over the last nine games.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: No catches in Week 14

    Gentry failed to secure his lone target during the Steelers' 16-14 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

    Gentry was on the field for a season-high 74 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps last week, but he played just 45 percent of the snaps against Baltimore, which is more in line with his usual marks. The 26-year-old has been mainly used in a blocking capacity this year, and he doesn't have much fantasy relevance.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Limited production in passing game

    Gentry secured his lone target for eight yards during the Steelers' 19-16 win over Atlanta on Sunday.

    Gentry was on the field for 74 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps during Sunday's matchup, outpacing fellow tight end Pat Freiermuth, who played 55 percent of the offensive snaps. However, Gentry was much less involved than Freiermuth in the passing game, as Freiermuth led the team with 76 receiving yards on three receptions. While Gentry's increased playing time in Week 13 was encouraging, he's been used mainly as a blocking tight end this year and has logged double-digit receiving yards just twice.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Loses yardage in loss

    Gentry caught his lone target for a minus-4 yards in Monday's 24-17 win over the Colts.

    Gentry played 36 of the Steelers' 69 offensive snaps in the win, with his 52 percent snap share representing his best mark since Week 6. He remains ahead of rookie Connor Heyward as Pittsburgh's No. 2 tight end, but he's unlikely to draw more than a couple targets in most games while Pat Freiermuth is healthy and available.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Minimal usage in loss

    Gentry secured both of his targets for zero yards during the Steelers' 16-10 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Gentry served as the Steelers' top tight end last week but had limited results against the Buccaneers, and his production remained low Week 7 with Pat Freiermuth back on the field. Gentry has been held under 10 yards in four of his last five appearances and doesn't have much fantasy value, especially when Freiermuth is healthy.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Limited results against Tampa Bay

    Gentry secured his lone target for four yards during Sunday's 20-18 win over the Buccaneers.

    Gentry saw an uptick in snaps Sunday with Pat Freiermuth (concussion) sidelined. However, Gentry drew just one target late in the second quarter, which helped set up a 55-yard field goal by the Steelers. The 26-year-old has tallied at least 40 yards in two of the first six games of the season but is an unreliable fantasy option, particularly when Freiermuth is healthy.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Should get expanded role Week 6

    Gentry is expected to serve as the Steelers' starting tight end in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with Pat Freiermuth (concussion) having been ruled out for the Week 6 contest, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    With Freiermuth having yet to clear the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries after suffering his third concussion in two seasons in last week's loss to the Bills, Gentry is the next man up at tight end. Even with Freiermuth playing roughly half of the game last week, Gentry still saw the field for 64 percent of the Steelers' offensive plays and parlayed the added playing time into a 5-43-0 receiving line on six targets. The Steelers' large deficit throughout the second half likely played a part in the team running a pass-heavy game script, but Sunday's matchup with the heavily favored Buccaneers should continue to open up opportunities in the passing game for Gentry and Connor Heyward, who is expected to serve as the No. 2 option at tight end. The 6-foot-8 Gentry should provide rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett with a big target in the short and intermediate areas of the field as well as the red zone.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Ready to go for Week 6

    Gentry (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    After sitting out Wednesday's practice due to the knee issue, Gentry cleared up any lingering concern about his health by taking every rep Thursday. Meanwhile, top tight end Pat Freiermuth was a limited participant for the second day in a row while he remains in the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries after suffering the third diagnosed concussion of his two-year career in last Sunday's loss to the Bills. If Freiermuth can't clear the protocol in advance of this Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Gentry and No. 3 tight end Connor Heyward would likely take on elevated roles for Pittsburgh. Gentry saw plenty of usage Week 5 despite Freiermuth playing about half the game, as the 26-year-old finished the blowout loss to Buffalo with five receptions for 43 yards on six targets while taking the field for 64 percent of the snaps on offense.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Gentry (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Gentry saw an increased role during the team's Week 5 loss to the Patriots after Pat Freiermuth (concussion) left the game, but he appears to have picked up an injury as well, leaving Connor Heyward, a rookie sixth-round pick, as the only tight end to practice Wednesday. The extent of Gentry's knee injury remains unclear, but he'll have two more opportunities to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Week 6.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Nursing knee injury

    Gentry is dealing with a knee injury Tuesday, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    The Steelers don't practice until Wednesday, so it remains to be seen whether Gentry's injury will impact his participation level. Top tight end Pat Freiermuth is still in the concussion protocol.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Tallies 43 yards against Bills

    Gentry secured five of six targets for 43 yards during the Steelers' 38-3 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

    The 2019 fifth-rounder saw an uptick in playing time after Pat Freiermuth (concussion) exited the game, and Gentry performed fairly well with his increased opportunities. He had totaled just two receiving yards over Pittsburgh's prior three games, but he should serve as the team's top tight end if Freiermuth is forced to miss additional time.
