George Pickens Sees 11 Targets In Playoff Loss

Tuesday, January 16, 12:32 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens caught five of his 11 targets for 50 yards and picked up 15 rushing yards on his lone carry of a wild-card round loss to the Buffalo Bills. Pickens came down with a few impressive grabs in the contest but also made a costly mistake when he lost a fumble on Pittsburgh's third offensive possession. Buffalo had already held a 7-0 lead and quickly went up by two touchdowns following the fumble recovery. The 22-year-old managed to bounce back and operated as a go-to guy for Mason Rudolph down the stretch. Despite dealing with inconsistent quarterback play all season, Pickens turned in an incredibly productive campaign and will look to further establish himself as one of the league's most exciting young receivers next season.

Rashee Rice Wraps Up Rookie Season Quietly

Monday, February 12, 1:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.
