The Pittsburgh Steelers acquired wide receiver Ryan Switzer and a sixth-round pick in 2019 from the Oakland Raiders on Monday in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. The team plans to use Switzer in the preseason finale on Thursday, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. The Raiders traded for Switzer from the Cowboys in April after being a fourth-round pick in 2017. Switzer must compete for a roster spot, but his addition isn't good news for Eli Rogers, who was suspended for the first game of the regular season. Switzer could return punts, but he's unlikely to see much of a role on offense if he makes the team.

Both Oakland Raiders wide receivers Griff Whalen and Ryan Switzer have been working out of the slot, but Whalen has worked ahead of Switzer in practices. The two are both undersized slot men with experience in the return game. "It's neck-and-neck with those guys. When Seth Roberts gets back, it's a very competitive position at the slot," head coach Jon Gruden said. Keon Hatcher, Johnny Holton and Dwayne Harris could also make cases for the final roster. The Raiders are expected to keep no fewer than six wideouts heading into Week 1. This is a battle for the No. 4 receiving job behind Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant. Whalen and Switzer are unlikely to come into fantasy relevance unless an injury occurs ahead of them.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Ryan Switzer came through with one touchdown for the Raiders in their first preseason win vs the Detroit Lions. He finished with only one catch for seven yards, but it was for the touchdown. Switzer is competing for a slot receiver spot in Raiders camp and according to a report by Dan Graziano, ESPN, Switzer is impressing the coaches playing out of the slot. He also has a role in the return game, which according to Graziano, makes him a "sure thing" to make the team. As training camp goes on his role could expand, which could ultimately bring him some fantasy later in the season.
