Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught three passes for 49 yards during the team's Week 11 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Washington's numbers weren't great Thursday night, but he still led the team. It's a continuation of the second-year pro's maturation and development into a nice complement to JuJu Smith-Schuster. While Pittsburgh's passing offense is anything but prolific, Washington still holds potential WR3 value down the stretch.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington hauled in six of his seven targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Don't look now, but Washington has 10 catches for 159 yards and a TD over the last two weeks. His first catch of the day was a touchdown on a 3-yard jump ball near the sideline. He did fumble later in the game, however. While Washington will almost certainly draw more attention on waivers than he has in previous weeks, he still remains the third option on a bad offense. Owners should be able to do better than start him on a short week in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington finished with four receptions for 69 yards on four targets in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: The Colts took away all of the downfield stuff, limiting Mason Rudolph to the short and intermediate routes. That was good for Washington, who was easily the most productive wideout for Pittsburgh. It wasn't a great day, just OK, and he remains more of a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 25.
Huddle Up: Washington will return to the lineup after missing some time because of the shoulder injury. He has caught only nine passes this season and probably can be avoided in all fantasy leagues even with his chemistry with Mason Rudolph.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (shoulder) is expected to miss a few weeks due to a shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: The injury could give Donte Moncrief a chance to emerge in a thinning cast of receivers. He's worth the speculative add universally.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 5 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Diontae Johnson may receive more targets with Washington out of the lineup and has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington accounted for 14 yards on two receptions in the team's Week 3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: With Donte Moncrief inactive there was hope that Washington would step up, but Pittsburgh's passing game flailed around outside of a pair of long TD connections. While there's still some long-term upside with Washington, he's only worth stashing in larger leagues.
