TE - PIT
Week 6 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Freiermuth is a smooth and natural route-runner. Whether he's lined up out in the slot or attached to the line of scrimmage, he runs a diverse route tree and he's able to create separation in multiple ways. He controls his momentum really well and is able to cut in and out of breaks like a player 30 pounds lighter. Tremendous movability when you factor in that he's 260 pounds. He's not Travis Kelce, but he moves in a very similar way. Kelce is able to control his momentum and shift in and out of breaks so well and Freiermuth has the same type of ability. He pops out of his stance if he has his hand in the dirt attached to the formation and he's able to move in and out of breaks fluidly. Great hands and soaks up anything that's within his catch radius. Able to hold on through contact and shows great concentration. Works to secure the catch before turning and moving up field. Can either be used down the seam or as a chain mover. Struggles to go up and highpoint the football in true contested catch situations, but that's not typically how NFL TEs are utilized. Freiermuth excels in tight windows though and is able to hold onto the ball well through contact and defenders draped all over him. Uses his size well to shield defenders from getting to the ball. Surprisingly fluid after the catch. Able to stop and start well and get upfield with his athleticism. Won't break away long runs after the catch routinely, but has more than enough ability to take a catch in the flat and turn it into a 10-yard gain. Fantastic in-line blocker and consistently shows great technique. Always looking to get his hands on the inside and drive up. Uses his size and frame well and will provide a very valuable role for a NFL offense that asks him to stay in repeatedly. He's not going to beat out some of the other athletes at the TE position in this class, but he has more than enough speed to win consistently in the NFL.

Pat Freiermuth catches two balls
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught both of his targets for seven yards in a 27-19 win over Denver in Week 5.
Freiermuth was quiet on an afternoon where the Steelers only attempted 25 passes. The rookie continues to split snaps with Eric Ebron, which is capping the upside of both players. Freiermuth will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 6 against the Seahawks.
