Kenny Pickett568.7364.53895.620.7612.5169269.12.76257.31
Mitchell Trubisky42.827.8299.61.671.038220.2420.24

Kenny Pickett: The Steelers went 7-5 in Pickett's starts, but he threw more interceptions (nine, 2.3%) than touchdowns (seven, 1.8%) in 2022. That said, eight of his nine interceptions were thrown in his first five games. Pickett had zero multiple touchdown games and only one 300-yard passing game (Week 5, 52-attempt 38-3 loss to the Bills in his first-ever start). There may be some breakout potential as he continues to build upon his late-season improvements in efficiency, but as OC Matt Canada recently described "what our identity is going to be. We want to run the ball, we want to be physical, and we want to be a good team that can throw the football down the field."


Najee Harris243.8987.46.143.2297.91.5195.73
Jaylen Warren90.8390.42.0424.3178.30.785.46
Anthony McFarland Jr.23920.465.
Jason Huntley5.521.50.122.416.80.16.35

Najee Harris: While the touches (381 to 313), targets (94 to 53) and yards from scrimmage (1,667 to 1,263) all dropped year over year, Harris managed to play a full 17-game slate once again despite some worries about a Lisfranc injury before the start of the season. The Steelers traded up for Georgia's Broderick Jones, and Kenny Pickett should take a step forward in year two, so that could lead to an improvement from his 2022 RB14 half-PPR performance.

Jaylen Warren: The Athletic's Mark Kaboly wrote in June "[t]he way [Warren] attacks the hole during drills is something to be seen. ... there is no way [OC] Canada can keep him off the field as much as he did last season."


Diontae Johnson86.3954.45.26.944.90.21175.54
George Pickens74.5950.25.33.423.80.17167.47
Allen Robinson38.6438.42.500078.14
Calvin Austin III15.3165.
Miles Boykin6.381.80.500014.33
Gunner Olszewski4.550.30.26.936.20.2813.78

Diontae Johnson: Johnson has more than 85 catches and 140 targets and has led the Steelers in receiving yards in three consecutive seasons. Despite scoring 15 touchdowns in 2020-21, no receiver had more receptions than Johnson (86) in 2022 without a single touchdown reception. In fact, no receiver in NFL history has ever had as many receptions as Johnson without scoring a touchdown, so some positive touchdown regression should be expected.

George Pickens: Among rookie wide receivers, only Atlanta's Drake London (866) had more yards than Pickens (801) in 2022. Pickens averaged 15.4 yards per catch and made a number of acrobatic highlight-reel catches throughout the year.

Allen Robinson: Robinson had a monster 80/1400/14 line in his age-22 season (2015), and he exceeded 1,100 yards in back-to-back seasons as recently as 2019-20. Over the past two seasons, however, he has managed only 71 catches for 749 yards and four touchdowns over 22 games with the Bears and Rams. Expected to start in the slot, Robinson has been labeled a "winner" this offseason.


Pat Freiermuth63.2713.23.9000126.32
Darnell Washington12.6138.40.800024.94
Connor Heyward12.4130.10.71.411.20.0724.95
Zach Gentry3.7420.20007.25

Pat Freiermuth: Freiermuth followed up a strong rookie season (60/497/7) with 63 catches for 732 yards and two touchdowns. Despite scoring only twice in 2022, Freiermuth finished as fantasy's TE8 (half-PPR scoring). He had at least three catches in 13 of 16 games played.
