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 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 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 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.
