At #80 in our WR rankings, he's probably best left for the waiver wire. Wilson is projected to catch 40.1 receptions for 532 yards and 2.5 TDs, which is 21.2% of the workload for WRs on the Steelers. The Steelers have the 4th-worst schedule for wide receivers.

Russell Wilson is the consensus #28 QB, and as such isn't worth drafting in 1QB leagues. In 2QB leagues, he's not a high-end option, but probably worth rostering as the Steelers' starter. Wilson is projected to earn 49.3 of his 215 fantasy points by rushing. That represents a significant rushing floor that makes it a little easier to feel confident starting him week-over-week. Projected for 9.6 interceptions compared to 16.8 passing TDs, Wilson has the ability to ruin a fantasy week with multiple picks in a game.

Justin Fields is behind Russell Wilson on the Steelers' QB depth chart. As such, you shouldn't spend a draft pick on him in most leagues. Fields is projected to earn 26.3 of his 63 fantasy points by rushing. That's a substantial portion of his fantasy value, and could give him a more stable floor than similarly-ranked QBs. With a projection of 2.7 interceptions compared to 3.9 passing touchdowns, he comes with some significant interception risk each week.
