Steelers' Eli Rogers: Returns to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers re-signed with the Steelers on a one-year deal Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rogers began the 2018 season on the PUP list due to both a one-game suspension and recovery from a major knee injury. He was back for the last three games of the season, however, where he recorded 12 catches on 14 targets over that span. While the Louisville product still must climb his way back up the depth chart, it's worth noting that 168 targets that went to Antonio Brown last season are now up for grabs after the star wideout was traded to Oakland just days earlier. Pittsburgh ended up bolstering the position with the signing of Donte Moncrief, but nonetheless, Rogers is heading into his age-26 season facing what could be his best opportunity for production in his time as a Steeler.

Steelers' Eli Rogers: Career-high seven catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers caught seven of nine targets for 57 yards and ran once for minus four yards during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

A restricted free agent Rogers spent most of the season on the PUP list, finishing the 2018 season with 12 catches (on 14 targets) for 79 yards and no touchdowns in three games. The rushing attempt against the Bengals was his first this season. His four-year career has been marred by injuries causing him to miss more games (34) than those he has played (30) and will face stiff competition regardless of the team he plays for in 2019.

Steelers' Eli Rogers: One catch in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers caught his lone target for two yards during Sunday's 31-28 loss to New Orleans.

This was only Rogers' second game this season and he has just five receptions for 22 yards heading into Week 17. The Steelers need to win against the Bengals and have the Browns defeat the Ravens to get in to the postseason. Expect Ben Roethlisberger to continue to focus on Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster, making Rogers and most other Pittsburgh receivers poor fantasy options.

Steelers' Eli Rogers: Active in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers brought in all four of his targets for 20 yards in the Steelers' 17-10 win over the Patriots on Sunday.

Just activated off the PUP list Saturday, the Steelers wasted no time getting Rogers involved. The third-year wideout hauled in a four-yard pass to move the chains on third down on Pittsburgh's first series, and he ended up making another grab in the drive. Rogers could play an important secondary receiver role over the final two games of the season and into the postseason, but he'll have competition for targets from rookie James Washington and Ryan Switzer.

Steelers' Eli Rogers: Activated off PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (knee) has been activated off the PUP list, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's unlikely Rogers has much of an impact on Sunday's contest against the Patriots, but it's encouraging to see the wide receiver healthy after tearing his ACL during the 2017 playoffs. Rogers is expected to slot in behind the likes of Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Ryan Switzer, James Washington and Darrius Heyward-Bey on the depth chart.
