Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett will face competition for the starting quarterback next season, but general manager Omar Khan said he has full faith in Pickett.
Huddle Up: The Steelers likely will be adding a veteran quarterback this season, so Pickett is not a lock to start in 2024. Fantasy players probably should avoid all of the Steelers quarterbacks next season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in re-signing QB Mason Rudolph, who is an unrestricted free agent. Head coach Mike Tomlin and team president Art Rooney II have said that bringing him back is the team's top priority.
Huddle Up: Although Rudolph played well down the stretch, winning the final three games of the regular season to lead the team to a postseason berth, neither he nor Kenny Pickett should be viewed as a recommended option in 2024 redraft leagues. However, dynasty owners should hold on to Pickett if he is on their roster.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are not interested in signing a veteran quarterback in free agency and there is some internal debate about who should start between QBs Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Saturday, Feb. 17.
Huddle Up: Rudolph played well down the stretch of the season but is set to hit free agency in March, so he'll have to be re-signed first. It's hard to imagine the Steelers giving up on Pickett after two seasons, but he hasn't done much to instill confidence that he's the long-term solution. Neither signal-caller is a suggested option in re-draft leagues in 2024 but Pickett should be held in dynasty formats.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett is returning to his starting role, but there will be competition in 2024, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Thursday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: Pickett averaged just 9.2 fantasy points per game before an injury led to his benching. He's a back-end QB2 option if he wins the starting role, but his value is trending in the wrong direction.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR George Pickens led the NFL with 18.1 yards per reception, and he ranked ninth with 22 receptions of 20-plus yards.
Huddle Up: Despite a carousel of mediocre quarterbacks, Pickens was able to deliver plenty of big plays and finished with a career-high 1,140 yards. Pickens has shown he can be a WR3 in just about any circumstance, and his ceiling would push even higher if the Steelers solidify their quarterback situation.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 12, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Harris likely will see a significant amount of touches this week because of the expected inclement weather. He has been playing well recently and can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 11.
Huddle Up: Harris is on track to play in the Wild Card playoff game and will continue to share playing time with Jaylen Warren. He has been very productive over the last month and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was named the starter against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Wild Card round.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 18.
Huddle Up: Harris is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season and has three touchdowns in the last two games. He will continue to share playing time with Jaylen Warren but can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 18.
Huddle Up: The Steelers have named Mason Rudolph as the starter for Week 18, so Pickett probably will serve as the backup and will not see playing time unless Rudolph suffers an injury. Rudolph has played well over the last two weeks but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Harris has been able to play despite the injury and probably will be available for Week 18 even after the missed practice Wednesday. He has been playing very well over the last few weeks and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) was a limited participant at practice Tuesday, Jan. 2. The team conducted a walkthrough so participation levels are estimations.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on Harris' status throughout the week. He's an RB2 option against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 18.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) practiced in full Tuesday, Jan. 2. The team conducted a walkthrough so his participation level is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Pickett seems to be on track to return this week, but the Steelers are rolling with Mason Rudolph as the starter for the finale. Rudolph is a QB2 option and can be avoided in standard leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was named the starter for Week 18, despite QB Kenny Pickett's health being good enough to play, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Rudolph has completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 567 yards, two touchdowns and no INTs through two starts and three games. He'll be a fringe QB2 in two-QB leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) has been declared inactive for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Mason Rudolph will receive at least one more start with Pickett sidelined and is coming off a productive Week 16 performance. Rudolph should only be a possible starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: The Steelers have named Mason Rudolph as the starting quarterback for Week 17, so Pickett will be the backup at best against the Seattle Seahawks. He should be avoided for the rest of the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was named as the starting quarterback for Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Rudolph made his first start of the season in Week 16 and promptly posted the best passing performance by a Pittsburgh quarterback (290 yards) since Kenny Pickett threw for 327 yards in Week 5 of last season. Perhaps the best part of Rudolph's game is his aggressiveness; it is not a coincidence that George Pickens erupted in the same week Rudolph was under center. With that said, the Seahawks are unlikely to be as forgiving as the Cincinnati Bengals were last week, so keep Rudolph on fantasy benches in one-quarterback leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: The Steelers still have not named a starter for Week 17, so it is not known if Pickett will be available for the game. He did not post great numbers when he was healthy and can be avoided in fantasy leagues even if he is active for the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph "has the ball where we stand today," according to head coach Mike Tomlin Tuesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: That implies he's set to start, but there is wiggle room in that Kenny Pickett (ankle) isn't quite ready. He could be by game time. So take that with a grain of salt, and neither QB would be worth a start outside of two-QB leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) appears likely to return to action for Week 17's game against the Seattle Seahawks, after having sat out Week 16's contest versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Pickett did not play in Week 16 after being a limited practice participant throughout the week because of concerns about his mobility. Although QB Mason Rudolph played well in his stead, Pickett is likely to face the Seahawks unless he suffers a setback.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16, and Freiermuth had nine receptions for 120 yards against the Bengals in Week 12.
Huddle Up: The Bengals have been torched by opposing tight ends all season, and Freiermuth joined in the fun the first time these teams met. Even with Mason Rudolph under center, Freiermuth could be worth a look as a streaming option.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth (knee) practiced in full for the second consecutive day on Thursday, Dec. 21, and carries no designation into Week 16.
Huddle Up: Good weeks for Freiermuth have been few and far between this season, mostly because of awful quarterback play. He's not a viable starting option in Week 16, especially with Mason Rudolph under center.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day on Thursday, Dec. 21., and was removed from the injury report.
Huddle Up: Harris has continued to see a consistent workload but his overall production has been lackluster, to say the least. He's a touchdown-dependent flex option in Week 16.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) was limited in practice for the third straight day on Thursday, Dec. 21, but was ruled out for Week 16.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (ankle) will not play in Week 16 versus the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Thursday, Dec. 21. Mason Rudolph will start in his place.
Huddle Up: Rudolph gets the nod over Mitchell Trubisky, but it is unlikely to have much effect on this offense. Only three times this season has a Pittsburgh quarterback accounted for two touchdowns in one game, so the identity of the Steelers' starting quarterback means little in fantasy - outside of whom he leans on in the passing game. Diontae Johnson should remain a fringe WR3 option and Pat Freiermuth should be considered a capable streaming option with a low floor this week.
