Pittsburgh Steelers QB Justin Fields said he expects to compete with QB Russell Wilson for the starting quarterback job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Wilson will open camp as the leading candidate for the job, but the team said Fields will have the chance to earn the job. Both should be upgrades over Kenny Pickett, but neither will be more than No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks to start the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Russell Wilson, QB Justin Fields and QB Kyle Allen were added to the roster this offseason, but general manager Omar Khan is not ruling out selecting a quarterback at some point after the first round of 2024 NFL Draft since all three of the new quarterbacks are on one-year contracts.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Russell Wilson is first in the pecking order, followed by QB Justin Fields, head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed on Sunday, March 24. "We've been very transparent about the pecking order, at least to start," Tomlin said. "I just think that provides clarity for all parties involved. Russell is a veteran man. He's got a proven process of readiness. He's been in this league a long time."
Huddle Up: Wilson will enter the 2024 campaign after finishing as QB14 overall in 2023. However, Fields definitely has the higher upside of the two thanks to his ability to run and would be a borderline QB1, at worst, if he sees the field. Fantasy managers investing in Wilson would be wise to grab Fields, also.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and QB Russell Wilson plan to work on a contract extension at the end of the 2024 season, according to multiple sources. He had signed a one-year contract with the Steelers for the veteran minimum because the Denver Broncos are still paying him $39 million for the upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Although he may not be the same player that he was in Seattle, the 35-year-old Wilson can be viewed as a solid QB2 option in fantasy football drafts this year because of the weapons surrounding him on offense, such as WR George Pickens and TE Pat Freiermuth.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Justin Fields has been told that he will be the No. 2 quarterback behind QB Russell Wilson.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation to see if anything changes, but it looks like Wilson will be the starting quarterback for the start of 2024. Wilson will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues, while Fields likely will also be a No. 2 QB if he takes over the job.

Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson was officially released Wednesday, March 13, with a post-June 1 designation.

Free-agent QB Russell Wilson (Broncos) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $1.2 million with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, March 10.
Huddle Up: With the Denver Broncos paying Wilson nearly $40 million to not be on their team for the upcoming season, the Steelers grab themselves a bargain and have found their likely starter in 2024. Wilson may no longer be the same player he was with the Seahawks, but he is almost certainly an upgrade over Kenny Pickett. The 35-year-old should be viewed as a solid QB2 option in fantasy drafts this summer, especially with Diontae Johnson, George Pickens and Pat Freiermuth at his disposal.

Free-agent QB Russell Wilson (Broncos) had a great meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, March 8, according to a source, and Wilson spoke with offensive coordinator Arthur Smith for hours.

Impending free-agent QB Russell Wilson (Broncos) could meet with the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Aidan O'Connell will be competing for the starting job, but the Raiders could add a veteran like Wilson to also fight for the starting job. Neither O'Connell nor Wilson would be more than No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks if they start for the Raiders.
