    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington has reportedly 'slimmed down' this offseason and is expected to play around 210 pounds this season, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: Washington is officially listed at 213, but he appeared to be carrying more weight than that during what was a trying rookie season. The Oklahoma State product did enjoy his two best performances late in the season, giving the team and fantasy owners some hope for 2019. Currently sporting an ADP in the 11th round in PPR leagues, Washington can easily emerge as a value pick in fantasy drafts if he shows the same kind of deep-ball ability he did in college.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington will have a bigger role in the passing game in 2019, and head coach Mike Tomlin said he expects great things from Washington.

    Huddle Up: Washington did not have a big role during his rookie season and finished with 16 receptions, 217 yards and one touchdown. He should be a top three receiver for the Steelers this season and will see plenty of targets. He can be a late-round in some fantasy leagues next season.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington will be 'sitting pretty' to become the No. 2 receiver if WR Antonio Brown doesn't return to the team in 2019.

    Huddle Up: Washington had a quiet rookie year, but he occasionally flashed the ability to make plays down the field. If Brown is out of the picture, Wahington's numbers could jump up significantly. Keep him in mind as a late-round sleeper.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington finished with a game-high 64 yards receiving and caught all three of his targets in Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Washington was bound to produce a bit more this week with Antonio Brown nursing a knee injury. The rookie did most of his damage on a 47-yard deep strike, but this effort marked the second time in three games he exceeded 60 yards receiving. Washington's path to fantasy stardom is blocked indefinitely by Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster, but reports of his strong practices near the end of the season suggest he is starting to pick things up. He should have some deep sleeper appeal in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 8:35pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington posted three grabs for a team-high 65 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Washington did a good job stepping up with the Patriots keeping Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster down. Still, he isn't a great fantasy target at this point of the season even with a favorable matchup in Week 16 in New Orleans looming.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 8:36pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught five passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in a 51-34 preseason loss to the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: With all the weapons in Pittsburgh, Washington will likely have issues making a consistent impact for fantasy owners this year. However, his big-play ability could make him an appealing flier in DFS contests.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 5:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (foot) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 1, because of a foot injury. He was able to walk off the field under his own power.

    Huddle Up: Owners should look for an update on Washington in the next day or two. He is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Steelers this season and has a chance to post decent numbers. Washington could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as a depth receiver.

  • Posted: 7/21/2018 9:06pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington's production in college won't translate to the NFL, according to an NFL scout. 'In college, he used his body against a lot of people to get separation,' the scout said. 'He's not going to do that. They're going to cover him up in the NFL. He can be a No. 4, or maybe a No. 3 on a bad team.'

    Huddle Up: Time will tell if Washington will be effective in the NFL, but in the meantime, he's expected to be the No. 3 receiver for a potent Pittsburgh offense. He is worth a late-round lottery ticket in redraft leagues and a second-round pick in rookie drafts.
