Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Ready for voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer is taking advantage of voluntary workouts, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

There don't appear to be any lasting effects from the ankle surgery Switzer reportedly underwent in January, which bodes well for his ability to simply focus on his craft during his first full offseason in Pittsburgh. While Switzer currently seems to have an uphill battle towards gaining a fantasy-relevant receiving role on a roster that otherwise includes JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, Donte Moncrief and Eli Rogers, the North Carolina product is the leading favorite to handle return duties on punts and kickoffs in 2019.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right ankle later this week, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Switzer apparently injured his ankle in the week of practice prior to Pittsburgh's Dec. 16 victory over New England. While the receiver didn't miss any time as a result, it now seems Switzer simply delayed the procedure until the offseason. While it's not clear how long it may take him to recover, there hasn't been any news to suggest Switzer is in danger of missing the openings days of OTAs in late April.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Substantial growth over last season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer caught one of his three targets for two yards during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

The second-year receiver played in all 16 games again this season, finishing with 36 catches (on 44 targets) for 253 yards and one touchdown. This was a huge jump from last season, when Switzer totaled 41 yards on six receptions. He also ran six times for 21 yards this season and added 862 yards to finish among the top 10 in the league in kickoff and punt returns. Switzer has two years remaining on his current contract with Pittsburgh.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Still playing limited role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer caught all three of his targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 31-28 loss to New Orleans.

Thirty-four of Ben Roethlisberger's 50 passes went to Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster, curbing the production of just about everyone else on the team. Switzer may see an uptick in Week 17 against a porous Cincinnati pass defense ranked 30th in the league, but probably not enough to merit consideration in fantasy lineups. In the last game against the Bengals seven different Steelers caught a pass -- eight if you include a one-yard loss Ben Roethlisberger caught from himself on a pass tipped by defensive end Carlos Dunlap -- but only Brown and Schuster have any fantasy value.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Minimal contribution in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer caught both his targets for nine yards and ran once for three yards during Sunday's 17-10 win over New England.

Dinged the past few weeks (concussion, ankle) Switzer was deemed fit for duty but only had three offensive touches, and none in the second half. Week 16 presents an attractive matchup against the Saints -- who allow the most fantasy points per game to wide receivers (29.9) -- but the Steelers have too many options that are better than Switzer.
