|The 2017 Biletnikoff Winner as the Nation's top receiver, Washington comes to Pittsburg as a 2nd round rookie, and should be ready to contribute right away. Given a starting grade by draft pundits, Washington brings a Martavis Bryant game to the Steelers offense without the baggage. Despite a compact 5'11" 210 inch frame, Washington was a big play maven for Oklahoma State. During his senior year he averaged a silly 20.9 yards per reception, finding the endzone 13 times. Washington should find his way into 3-receiver sets right from the start, and has enough collegiate experience in a power conference to be trusted. This is one of the few offenses where the 3rd receiver realistically has some fantasy value, so keep a close eye on Washington's progress in the summer. If he can hold off some of the underwhelming veterans on this team, he might be someone to keep an eye on as a late round flier.
| Antonio Brown sent home with minor injury|
Suffered undisclosed injury during training camp; day-to-day

FFToday's Take: ESPN's Adam Schefter later reported Brown is expected “to be fine in a few days." For now, it appears the game's most productive receiver doesn't have much to worry about. Should he miss time at any point during the season, JuJu Smith-Schuster would vault into low-end WR1 territory, while rookie James Washington would likely be on the WR3 radar.
