It's really been a crap-shoot between Washington and Diontae Johnson in terms of who will produce for the Steelers. It may be best to avoid Washington Sunday night, as it looks to be a low-scoring game against a tough defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Smith-Schuster out, Washington played the slot-heavy role once again last week, which is a good sign for his potential in this game. The Bills are still not a matchup you need to target aggressively with wide receivers, as they've allowed the fifth-fewest points to them on the year. The 1.36 PPR points per target is second-best behind only the Patriots, and that's an issue when we know Hodges hasn't thrown more than 21 pass attempts in any of his three starts. Even if Washington got a massive 25 percent target share, that'd amount to just five targets. The slot matchup with Taron Johnson is a lot better than the one with Tre'Davious White, as Johnson has allowed a 73.0 percent catch-rate in his coverage, but has kept the play in front of him, allowing 7.7 yards per reception. Washington's bread and butter has been the deep ball, something the Bills haven't been prone to allowing, as the 26 pass-plays over 20 yards they've allowed ranks as the second-fewest in the league. Washington shouldn't be relied on for anything more than high-end WR5 numbers.Many will want to gravitate to Gage with Calvin Ridley out for the year, but it really shouldn't change his role all that much. He plays slot-only and was on the field for just 35-of-69 snaps last week despite Ridley's departure. His matchup may be upgraded, though. Nickel cornerback K'Waun Williams suffered a concussion last week and his replacement would be D.J. Reed. He's the 49ers fifth-round pick from last year who's allowed 20-of-25 passing for 212 yards and three touchdowns in his limited playing time. Knowing Matt Ryan may be under pressure, we could see Gage be a safety valve in the shorter area of the field. He's still nothing more than a low-upside WR4/5-type option, though he should have a decent floor.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 No Calvin Ridley, so Gage could pick up a couple more targets. Still, this is a tough matchup that I want no part of with an unproven WR like Gage.
