George Pickens emerges as the primary beneficiary of the Steelers' offense following Diontae Johnson's departure. Despite competition from rookie third-rounder Roman Wilson, Pickens' consistent growth hints at a potential breakout in his third year. During the first five weeks of the 2023 season with Johnson sidelined, Pickens averaged 12.8 points per game (19th) and nearly 80 yards per game. With Russell Wilson or Justin Fields' vertical threat, Pickens could flourish, as seen in his WR13 performance during Johnson's absence last season. But be wary that the run-heavy nature of an Arthur Smith offense could doom Pickens' breakout.
