George Pickens Quiet In Week 4 Blowout Loss

Monday, October 2, 10:02 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens caught just three of his seven targets for 25 yards in the team's 30-6 blowout loss to the Houston Texans. Still, outside of running backs, the second-year pro led the team in receiving yards. The entire Pittsburgh offense sputtered against a beatable Houston defense. They also lost quarterback Kenny Pickett (knee) and tight end Pat Freiermuth (hamstring) to injuries. It appears as though Mitch Trubisky could get the start against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. The passing game can't get much worse, so Pickens will still be viewed as a flex option next week.

Zay Flowers Sees 10 Targets

Sunday, September 24, 11:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers may not have found the endzone yet this season but he now has caught 21 of his 25 targets through three games. The rookie saw another 10 targets against the Colts and hauled in eight of them for 48 yards while also getting one carry for just two yards. In PPR formats, Flowers has produced reliable fantasy stat lines since he tends to see a lot of close-range targets. The passing game still seems to be working out some kinks, so Flowers and company could improve as the season goes on. Week 4, however, will be a tougher challenge against the Browns defense.
