George Pickens getting reps in the slot

George Pickens said he'll be playing more in the slot this year than any other year in his NFL career.

Fantasy Impact

Pickens is getting more reps in the slot early in camp. "I like working in the slot just as much as I like working as an outside receiver," he said. "It puts me on linebackers, put me on safeties." Pickens is a popular breakout candidate from a fantasy football perspective this season with Russell Wilson and Justin Fields now in the quarterback room for the Steelers.

George Pickens will play on Saturday

Steelers WR George Pickens will suit up on Saturday, per head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Impact

Pickens’ status and commitment to the team came into question after he admitted to not blocking on a running play to avoid injury. With the change in quarterback to Mason Rudolph and Pickens lack of production, fantasy managers can safely leave him out of their lineups for Week 16.

George Pickens logs 47 receiving yards in loss

George Pickens caught 3-of-7 passes for 47 yards in Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy managers of Pickens haven't been happy with how he's been producing this year, and that didn't change on Saturday. He caught just three passes on the day, and while his rough quarterback situation may be partially to blame, it's still frustrating to see him have yet another poor showing for fantasy purposes. He is borderline rosterable in most fantasy leagues for the rest of the season.
