|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.

FFToday's Take: The dreaded mid-week addition to the injury report. According to teammate James Washington, the expectation is Smith-Schuster will still play versus the Saints in Week 16. Nevertheless, this is one to keep an eye on heading into the weekend. If Smith-Schuster is unable to go, Antonio Brown would be in line for a huge target share, while Washington would have a good matchup and could be worth starting in some deeper leagues.
