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.

Steelers' Eli Rogers: Uncertain for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said Thursday that Rogers (knee) looks "healthy" since returning to practice Nov. 28, but he wouldn't commit to the receiver being activated from the PUP list ahead of Sunday's game against the Patriots, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

NFL rules afford teams 21 days to evaluate players on the PUP list or injured reserve for a return to the roster once they resume practicing, so the Steelers can wait until at least Dec. 19 before a decision on Rogers' status is made. However, the team might have some extra incentive to add another receiver to the ranks in advance of a Week 15 matchup that projects as an offensive shootout. Given Rogers' lengthy layoff, it's unlikely the Steelers would count on him to play significant snaps if activated, but the 25-year-old could eventually unseat Ryan Switzer as the team's primary slot man once his conditioning is no longer a concern.
