James Washington In Better Shape

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver James Washington trained harder this offseason and is down 15 pounds from the 223 to 225 pounds he played at in his rookie season. Washington finished 2018 with two 60-plus yard performances in the final three weeks, but his 42.1 percent catch rate (16 receptions on 38 targets) was the worst among Steelers wideouts with at least 10 catches. "I feel like I know more of the plays. ... I feel I'm quicker off the ball," Washington said. "I'm able to run with everybody." Donte Moncrief might have the inside track on the No. 2 job behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, with Eli Rogers in the slot. However, Washington can make some noise as well with Antonio Brown no longer around. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.

James Washington A Healthy Scratch Sunday Night

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver James Washington is a healthy scratch for Sunday night against the Chargers. Offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (knee) is also out for this game. Washington has plenty of long-term upside, but he hasn't been a big part of the team's offense this year with only eight catches on 25 targets for 77 yards and a score in 10 games. Ryan Switzer and Justin Hunter should fight for looks in three-receiver sets behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster on Sunday night.

James Washington A Healthy Scratch For Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver James Washington is a healthy inactive for Week 8 against the Browns. Quarterback Mason Rudolph is also a healthy scratch. Washington has caught only five of his 14 targets this year for 49 yards and a touchdown, so he's not fantasy relevant in redraft leagues. However, he's a worthy dynasty/keeper stash for his upside.
