The Pittsburgh Steelers released wide receiver Gunner Olszewski on Friday, according to a source. Olszewski is a productive special-teams player mostly, and now he's free to sign with any team. The 26-year-old is well off the fantasy radar while not really being a factor at all on offense. In just two games with the Steelers this year, Olszewski had one punt return for eight yards and two kickoff returns for 24 yards. He also caught his only target for no gain. Olszewski will likely latch on with another team as a punt and kick-return option, but he can be ignored in fantasy.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Gunner Olszewski (head) went to the locker room during the second quarter and is being evaluated for a head injury. His return to the game is doubtful. The injury seemed to have occurred when he was hit hard after a catch where he lost the ball and was ruled a fumble. He was able to walk off the field and into the locker room but was noticeably shaken up. Any DFS managers or managers in a very deep league will want to monitor updates to see if he will be able to return.
