Pickens had some standout moments in his rookie season, including highlight-reel catches and shadow realm run blocking reps. Still, overall if you were banking on him to be a major fantasy producer, you were probably disappointed. Pickens logged six weeks with top-24 fantasy finishes, but outside of those weeks, he was unstartable with also eight weeks of WR50 or lower fantasy production. With Allen Robinson on the roster, expect the Steelers to utilize three wide receiver sets heavily. In Weeks 1-8, with the team heavily deploying 11 personnel, Pickens had a 15.1% target share, a 26% air yard share, and 1.19 yards per route run. He barely eclipsed a 15% target per route run rate. Pickens is a WR4/5 that could be the fourth option in a Kenny Pickett-led passing attack.

George Pickens catches two passes in Week 17

George Pickens caught two of his four targets for 29 yards in a 16-13 win over the Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Pickens finished fourth on the team in receiving on a night where the Steelers went very run-heavy. The rookie wideout has had some big games this season but he has been inconsistent in an inefficient Pittsburgh offense. Pickens will be a WR4 against the Browns next week in the regular-season finale.
