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). Some breakout potential exists if he continues to build upon his late-season improvements in efficiency, but how much will the Steelers open up the offense?


Najee Harris241.3977.36.0343.2297.91.5194.3
Jaylen Warren101.2440.22.4324.3178.30.792.78
Anthony McFarland Jr.23920.465.

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. An improved offensive line and offense overall should help a healthy Harris, who was RB14 in half-PPR in 2022. (Harris was a volume-based RB4 as a rookie in 2021.)

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." Warren had 105 touches for 593 yards and a touchdown and finished as fantasy's RB51.


Diontae Johnson87.9996.45.36.944.90.21181.14
George Pickens74.5950.25.33.423.80.17167.47
Allen Robinson38.6438.42.500078.14
Calvin Austin III19.2207.711.15.50.0237.04
Gunner Olszewski3.539.90.24.624.20.1810.44
Miles Boykin4.356.60.30009.61

Diontae Johnson: Johnson has more than 85 catches and 140 targets while leading the team in receiving yards in three consecutive seasons. Despite scoring 15 touchdowns in the previous two seasons (2020-21), Johnson set the NFL record in 2022 for most receptions (86) without a touchdown. In other words, 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 was labeled a "winner" by The Athletic earlier this offseason.


Pat Freiermuth63.2683.83.7000122.18
Darnell Washington12.6138.40.800024.94
Connor Heyward12.21280.71.411.20.0724.64
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.
