Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught two passes for 80 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Football Team in Week 13. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Washington has posted at least 50 yards in only two games this season but still has big-play ability. He is still behind multiple pass catchers in terms of targets and can be avoided in most leagues unless one of the other receivers suffers an injury.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught two of his three targets for 19 yards Wednesday, Dec. 2, against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The stat line doesn't do much for fantasy managers, but Washington did make a key grab late in the game to help seal the Steelers' win on a day several other receivers struggled with drops. Washington is worth a waiver grab in deep leagues and should be watched closely next week.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught five passes for 36 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Washington received more work this week because of the injury to Diontae Johnson and could receive a similar workload next week if Johnson is ruled out. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Washington could be a flex option.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught two passes for 34 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 1. He was targeted three times during the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (undisclosed) fully participated in practice Friday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Washington has been dealing with a minor injury this week but appears to have recovered and is ready for the start of the regular season. He posted solid numbers in 2019 even though he was playing with backup quarterbacks for most of the season. He can be considered a No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Washington probably will be back on the field on a few days, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He should be a top-three receiver for the Steelers this season and has a chance to improve on his 2019 numbers. Washington can be selected in the later rounds as No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Washington could start opposite of Juju Smith-Schuster, but he'll need to step it up to stave off Chase Claypool. Washington figures to be a WR4 or WR5 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Washington will be sidelined for an undisclosed amount of time, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He had a solid 2019 season with 73 receiving yards and should be a top-three receiver for the Steelers again this season. He can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught five of his 11 targets for 83 yards in Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Perhaps the best part of the Steelers' season to this point has been the second-half emergence of Washington, who has managed at least 83 yards receiving in four of his last six games. The Sunday Night Football crew mentioned during the telecast that Washington has "exceeded what (the team) thought his upside was" when they drafted him, which is a huge change from its perspective at this time last season. Expect him to be a boom/bust WR3 in Week 16 versus the New York Jets.
