QB - PIT
This Week Outlook
Dwayne Haskins has been notified that he will receive a restricted free agent tender. The expectation is that Haskins will receive an original-round tender, which would pay him in the range of $2.5 million.
This was expected, as the team indicated that Haskins would get a chance to compete for the starting job with veteran Ben Roethlisberger likely to retire following the 2021 season. Haskins, the former first-round pick, apparently has done enough to warrant consideration in Pittsburgh. Given the lack of inspiring alternatives, Haskins is an interesting Superflex dynasty stash as things play out in Pittsburgh.
Dwayne Haskins said that Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert indicated he will have a chance to compete for the starting QB job heading into the 2022 season.
With it looking like Ben Roethlisberger's time as a Steeler is officially over, they'll be in the market this offseason for the team's next quarterback. Haskins and Mason Rudolph remain on the roster. There have been various rumors of them being in on Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson if either of them move teams, while the NFL Draft will also be an option.
Steelers’ HC Mike Tomlin has named QB Dwayne Haskins the team’s starter for the preseason finale Friday night against the Panthers.
This is a great opportunity to the former first-round pick. With a good performance his dynasty value could see a boost, as some analyst believe he will be the heir to Ben Roethlisberger. After completing 16 of 22 pass attempts for 161 yards and a touchdown during the Steelers’ preseason win over the Eagles, the third year QB will look to make yet another strong impression on the coaching staff in an effort to win the lead backup role.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins racked up a stat line of 16/22 passing while recording 161 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's win over the Eagles.
Haskins looked very sharp and comfortable during Thursday's game against the Eagles. The third year QB continues to make strong impressions on the coaching staff in an effort for the backup QB role.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins goes 8-of-13 passing for 54 yards during Thursday's win over the Cowboys.
After hearing great things in camp all week about how the former first round pick had evolved and changed into a better QB, his play on Thursday was a bit shaky. Haskins went eight of 13 for 54 yards but struggled to keep drives alive. The Steelers QB competition should continue to heat up between Haskins, Mason Rudolph, and Josh Dobbs for the rights to be the backup to Ben Roethliesbergers backup.
