The Steelers have done a good job moving him around the formation, which should make it easy to keep a big role for him in the offense despite the return of Diontae Johnson. Over the last three weeks, Claypool has played 40 snaps in the slot, 59 at LWR, and 59 at RWR, so it's tough to say who'll suffer most now that all four wide receivers are healthy, though we have to suspect it'll be Washington, who has seen 18 targets over the last three weeks. Whatever they do, they have to keep the rookie Claypool on the field, as his 14.0 yards per target and touchdown every 3.8 touches is simply too good to remove. Fortunately, the Titans have allowed 45.1 PPR points per game to opposing receivers, which ranks as the fourth-most in the league, including 23.6 targets per game. Because of that, we've seen 11 different receivers score at least 10.7 PPR points, which is typically good enough for a WR3 performance, highlighting a solid floor for Claypool. Again, there is some uncertainty with Johnson due back, but there's no way they can take Claypool out of the gameplan. Keep him in lineups as a high-end WR3.

Chase Claypool scores in Week 6

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught all four of his targets for 74 yards and added a rushing touchdown in a 38-7 win over the Browns in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Claypool wasn't as heavily involved as he was in Week 5 but he found the end zone for the fifth time in the past two games. The rookie wideout has burst onto the scene and is settling in as a weekly WR2 going forward. He will be a strong fantasy option in Week 7 against the Titans.
