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.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in a 23-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.
Huddle Up: As a receiver who thrives on the deep ball, Washington is going to deliver the occasional dud. With the fantasy playoffs set to begin, you may want to opt for a steadier option, especially with Pittsburgh facing a tough Buffalo defense in Week 15.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington has had a reception of 30-plus yards in four of the last five games and has recorded at least 90 receiving yards and a touchdown in three of the last four games.
Huddle Up: Despite Pittsburgh's quarterback carousel, Washington has emerged as a dangerous deep threat. He's a big-play dependent but high-upside WR3 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington finished with four grabs for 111 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, including a long touchdown where he grabbed it off the lap of a defender while laying on their backs for the highlight-reel score.
Huddle Up: Washington was the receiver of choice for Devlin Hodges, and he could be a sneaky-good WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington posted three grabs for 98 yards in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals, highlighted by a 79-yard scoring connection with QB Devlin Hodges.
Huddle Up: Washington easily had the most explosive play in a game featuring few splash plays. He is still not someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes outside of the very deepest leagues. The Steelers host the Browns in Week 13.

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) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Washington caught three of six targets for 51 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. He remains a highly risky option with fantasy appeal only in dynasty formats.

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.
