Donte Moncrief likely No. 2 receiver

Donte Moncrief is likely to be the Steelers’ No. 2 receiver behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, according to a report from the Athletic’s Mark Kaboly.

Fantasy Impact

Moncrief has reportedly been a standout at OTAs already, and he’s impressed QB Ben Roethlisberger too. The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly reports that Moncrief “looks like a slam-dunk No. 2” receiver. Moncrief finished 2018 with his best statistical season in three years, with a 48-668-3 line in his only season with the Jaguars. The numbers don’t seem like much at face value, but they are pretty impressive considering he was catching passes from Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler. Moncrief has yet to top 733 receiving yards or seven receiving TDs in a season over his five years in the league, but he is a strong breakout candidate, especially given his current ADP of WR61 at overall pick 173.

Donte Moncrief heading to Steelers on two-year deal

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers and Donte Moncrief have come to terms on a two-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

It's tough to blame Moncrief for his underwhelming 48-663-3 receiving line last season as he dealt with the corpse of Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler at quarterback for most the year. Moncrief's role with Pittsburgh will be much more fantasy friendly as there are plenty of targets left behind from Antonio Brown's departure, not to mention the massive quarterback upgrade he's getting. JuJu Smith-Schuster will undoubtedly serve as the team's top dog, but Moncrief has a chance to be very fantasy relevant this season.

Donte Moncrief catches two passes in loss to Texans

Donte Moncrief caught two passes on three targets for 21 yards on Sunday as the Jaguars lost to the Texans by a 20-3 score.

Fantasy Impact

Moncrief was a big free agent signing for the Jaguars in the offseason but was not impressive in his first season. The veteran receiver finishes 2018 with 48 catches and three touchdowns.

Donte Moncrief catches four passes in Week 16 win

Donte Moncrief caught four passes on four targets for 43 yards as the Jaguars defeated the Dolphins by a 17-7 score on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Moncrief was the top wide receiver on the Jaguars depth chart. But with just four targets and six targets over the last two games, it looks like the veteran has fallen out of favor in the offense and is no longer fantasy relevant.

Donte Moncrief fails to catch a pass in Week 15 loss

Donte Moncrief saw two targets but could not catch either one of them as the Jaguars lost to the Redskins by a 16-13 score on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Moncrief is a victim of a poor passing offense in Jacksonville. The veteran wide receiver will not see enough consistent targets this season to be worth starting in fantasy leagues.
