Justin Hunter to work out for Patriots

Free agent wideout Justin Hunter will work out with the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

New England will bring in Hunter for a workout with Julian Edelman dealing with a thumb issue of unknown severity. Hunter has played six NFL season with four different teams. He most recently appeared for the Steelers where he caught seven passes for 44 yards and a score in 12 games over the past two years.

Justin Hunter inactive Week 2

The Pittsburgh Steelers declared wide receiver Justin Hunter inactive for the club's Week 2 home opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. Hunter played 61% of Pittsburgh's snaps last week, so the move is somewhat surprising.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the extensive playing time, Hunter only caught one pass against Cleveland. This should free up rookie second-rounder James Washington to see an expanded role in a favorable matchup against Kansas City.

Justin Hunter getting first-team snaps at OTAs

ESPN staff writer Jeremy Fowler reports that WR Justin Hunter has received "a few first-team reps alongside Darrius Heyward-Bey" during Pittsburgh's OTAs. Fowler also mentioned that Hunter recently dominated a red-zone drill and made several impressive jump-ball catches in the end-zone.

Fantasy Impact

Hunter showing up big in the summer has become an annual tradition, along with his disappearing act in the regular season. Martavis Byrant's departure opens up the WR3 job in Pittsburgh, but Hunter--who played just 65 snaps last season-- is unlikely to beat out Heyward-Bey or second-rounder James Washington, who is the favorite to win that job in camp. Unless Hunter pulls off a miraculous preseason showing to start the season as the Steelers' WR3, he can be ignored in all formats.

Justin Hunter only targeted once in SNF win

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter was active for Sunday's game against the Packers, but failed to reel in his only target.

Fantasy Impact

Hunter got a few snaps with JuJu Smith-Schuster sidelined, but he didn't capitalize on his lone target of the game. Unless a wave of injuries hit Pittsburgh's WR corps, the talented yet unused wideout will be useless in fantasy football.

Justin Hunter targeted three times on Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter caught 1-of-3 balls thrown his way for just 6 yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Hunter was active over Eli Rogers for the second straight week, which bodes well for his roster security. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to do much with his trio of targets, but neither was any other Steeler wideout not named Antonio Brown. Hunter remains off the radar in redraft formats but is a possible, end-of-bench stash in deep dynasty leagues.
