Until Gentry finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Raiders' Zach Gentry: Joining Vegas' depleted TE room

    The Raiders signed Gentry off Cincinnati's practice squad Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Gentry will join Las Vegas' active roster and will provide depth in a tight-end room that's dealing with injuries to Michael Mayer (toe) and Jesper Horsted (hamstring). Both Mayer and Horsted missed Monday's 20-14 win over the Chiefs, and if they remain out Sunday against the Colts, only Austin Hooper would slot in ahead of Gentry on the depth chart.

  • Zach Gentry: Staying in AFC North

    Gentry signed with the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 2019 fifth-round pick re-signed with Pittsburgh in late March before missing the 53-man roster one week ago. Throughout his four-year career in Pittsburgh, Gentry appeared in 40 games and tallied 303 yards on 39 receptions.

  • Zach Gentry: Parts ways with Pittsburgh

    The Steelers released Gentry on Tuesday. Gentry spent the last four years in Pittsburgh after being selected by the team in the fifth round of the 2019 draft. He topped 100 yards in each of the past two seasons but had a quiet preseason in 2023 and was unable to make the team's 53-man roster.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Quiet in preseason

    Gentry secured one of two targets for seven yards across the Steelers' three preseason games. Gentry rejoined the Steelers on a one-year deal during the offseason but wasn't utilized much in the passing game. Per Mark Kaboly of The Athletic, there's a chance Gentry doesn't make the 53-man roster now that rookie Darnell Washington is in the fold, but Gentry's solid blocking abilities bolster his chances for a spot on the final roster. However, it doesn't appear as though he'll have much fantasy value early in the regular season.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Staying in Pittsburgh

    Gentry is set to re-sign with the Steelers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Gentry has been with the Steelers for his first four years in the NFL, but he did not start playing a bigger role until 2021. He has played all 34 games over the previous two years. In that span he accumulated 299 yards on 38 receptions. He projects to back up Pat Freiermuth in 2023.

  • 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: 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: Week 6 Waiver Priority List

    We don't know if Pat Freiermuth (concussion) will play in Week 6 against Tampa Bay, but there's a good chance he could be out after suffering his third head injury in the past two years. With Freiermuth leaving Week 5 at Buffalo, Gentry had five catches for 43 yards on six targets. The Steelers will likely be chasing points against the Buccaneers, and Kenny Pickett will be throwing for most of the game, which is what happened against the Bills when Pickett had 52 pass attempts. In deeper, tight-end premium leagues, Gentry could be a sleeper in Week 6. He's worth adding for 1 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • 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.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Held to one target Sunday

    Gentry secured his lone target for two yards during the Steelers' 24-20 loss to the Jets on Sunday. Gentry didn't play in last week's loss to Cleveland, but he was on the field for a season-high 61 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday. In spite of his uptick in playing time, the 2019 fifth-rounder had minimal production and should continue to have a limited role in the passing game as long as Pat Freiermuth is healthy.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Racks up 40 yards Sunday

    Gentry secured both of his targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over the Bengals. Gentry didn't start Sunday's season opener and was on the field for just 30 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps, but he had a 32-yard reception early in the second quarter, which was the Steelers' longest play of the game. In spite of Gentry's solid yardage total to begin the season, Pat Freiermuth unsurprisingly led the team's tight ends by securing five of 10 targets for 75 yards. As long as Freiermuth stays healthy, it seems unlikely that Gentry will have enough playing time to make him a reliable fantasy option.

  • Steelers' Zach Gentry: Not targeted against Lions

    Gentry wasn't targeted during Sunday's 19-9 preseason win over the Lions. Gentry served as a starter Sunday and was on the field for 25 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps, but he didn't have an impact in the passing game. The 2019 fifth-rounder was quiet during the preseason, securing his lone target for nine yards. He's in line to begin the year as the No. 2 tight end behind Pat Freiermuth since Eric Ebron is no longer with the team, but Gentry's fantasy value will likely be limited as long as Freiermuth is healthy.
