No rookie tight end flew up the dynasty rankings more than Pat Freiermuth, who made his case as a fringe fantasy TE1 in Year 1. The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie ramped things up in Week 6 after an injury to Eric Ebron and never looked back.

Baby Gronk was the TE7 from that time forward, averaging 11.3 fantasy points per game seventh). He would go on to finish the year as the TE13 overall despite running a route on just 56% of dropbacks.

When starting and healthy, Freiermuth ran a route on 67% of dropbacks - a rate that would have ranked 15th-highest at the position in 2021. That's the bare minimum usage fantasy drafters should expect to see from the Penn State product with Ebron gone in free agency.

Pat Freiermuth goes for 25 yards

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught 4-of-5 targets for 25 yards in a 42-21 Wild Card loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Freiermuth turned in an excellent rookie season. At a position where rookies rarely produce in year one, Freiermuth managed to score seven touchdowns for the Steelers. In line to become Pittsburgh's full-time tight end in 2022, Freiermuth is shaping up as a solid low-end TE1 in fantasy next season.
