  • Steelers' George Pickens: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Pickens is going to hopefully start playing more after his performance in Week 3 at Cleveland, and he's worth stashing now in case his production starts to pop. Against the Browns, he had three catches for 39 yards on seven targets, and he showed off his playmaking ability with a ridiculous one-handed catch falling to the ground. The Steelers have a crowded receiving corps, but Pickens should be the No. 2 option in the passing game behind Diontae Johnson moving forward. I plan to stash him in all leagues, and he's worth adding for 5-10 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Targeted seven times in loss

    Pickens secured three of seven targets for 39 yards during the Steelers' 29-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday. Pickens totaled just five targets over the first two games of the regular season, but he drew more looks during Thursday's primetime matchup. Two of his receptions were within a few yards of the line of scrimmage, but he made an acrobatic 36-yard catch late in the first quarter that put the Steelers in the red zone. He also was called for an offside penalty on an onside kick late in the fourth quarter. The rookie second-rounder has had the team's longest reception in back-to-back weeks and has played 76 percent of the offensive snaps to begin the season, but his inconsistent target share has limited his fantasy output.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Held in check once again

    Pickens hauled in one of three targets for 23 yards during the Steelers' 17-14 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Pickens' playing time increased during Sunday's matchup, as he played 85 percent of the team's offensive snaps after he was on the field for just 71 percent during last week's regular-season opener. He had the team's longest reception of the game against the Patriots with a 23-yard catch late in the second quarter, but that was the only reception he logged in Week 2. After generating plenty of buzz during the preseason, the rookie second-rounder has been limited to just two catches for 26 yards on six targets over his first two regular-season games in the NFL.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Quiet in NFL debut

    Pickens secured one of three targets for three yards during Monday's 23-20 overtime win over the Bengals. Pickens drew plenty of praise from the Steelers' coaching staff during offseason activities and preseason play, but he was held in check during his first taste of regular-season action in the NFL. The rookie played 71 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps Sunday but seemed to be clearly behind Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool for targets in the season opener. Pickens demonstrated during preseason play that he certainly has the talent to compete at the professional level, but his limited target share during his regular-season debut was discouraging.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Gains 35 yards in preseason finale

    Pickens caught three of five targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 19-9 preseason win over the Lions. Pickens got to start Sunday's preseason tilt with Chase Claypool (rest) getting the night off. The 2022 second-round pick put together a strong showing to close out the exhibition schedule, but he still projects to be third on the receiver pecking order behind the established duo of Diontae Johnson and the aforementioned Claypool. Pickens would garner fantasy interest even at third on the depth chart if the Steelers still had Ben Roethlisberger in his prime, but given the uncertainty under center this season, the rookie wideout seems to be more of an upside stash heading into a Week 1 matchup with the Bengals.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Quiet in second preseason game

    Pickens caught both of his targets for six yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Jaguars. Pickens had a quiet game as each of Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and Pat Freiermuth played. The rookie second-round pick still caught a pass from Kenny Pickett midway through the second quarter, but he also played at least briefly with the backups in the second half. Pickens has had an impressive training camp by all accounts, but he will still likely be prioritized behind at least Johnson and Claypool for targets once the regular season rolls around.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Listed as starter on depth chart

    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin downplayed Pickens being listed with the starters on the team's initial preseason depth chart, Steelers Depot reports. Asked if it's a testament to Pickens' work at training camp, Tomlin responded, "No, it's just the fact that I have to give you guys a depth chart." Fair enough, but whoever is responsible for the depth chart likely saw the same thing as everyone else -- rookies and backup-caliber players behind Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool. That makes Pickens, a second-round pick, a decent bet to win the third receiver spot in a Pittsburgh offense that's gone heavy on three-wide formations in recent years. It's possible the team uses more one- and two-wide looks this year, though Pittsburgh still lists three wide receivers as starters. Other candidates to line up alongside Johnson and Claypool include Calvin Austin, Miles Boykin and Anthony Miller. Mark Kaboly of The Athletic notes that Pickens has been a "stud" at training camp, with Jeff Hathhorn of 93.7 The Fan adding that the rookie hasn't backed down from Pittsburgh's veteran defenders in practice.

  • Steelers' George Pickens: Impressing during camp

    Pickens has been impressive over the first few days of training camp, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports. Pickens was selected by the Steelers in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft and should have the opportunity to earn targets early in his rookie season because the team lost several receivers during the offseason. The 21-year-old likely will be behind Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool (shoulder) for targets to begin the regular season, but Pickens has made impressive catches over his first few practices in a Steelers uniform. Rookie Calvin Austin and veterans Miles Boykin and Anthony Miller also should be in the mix for work in Pittsburgh's passing game.
