Kenny Pickett Mediocre In Week 2 Victory

Tuesday, September 19, 10:36 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett completed 15 of his 30 pass attempts for 222 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a Week 2 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Pickett's struggles from the season opener continued on Monday night as Pittsburgh's defense scored more points than its offense. The 25-year-old did complete a strike while under pressure to receiver George Pickens, who picked up over 50 yards after the catch for a 71-yard touchdown. Although Pickett has not yet shown much improvement in his second campaign, he has faced two of 2022's top-10 defenses against fantasy quarterbacks to open the season. A much more favorable matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders is on tap for Week 3.

Bryce Young's Size Limiting The Offense?

Wednesday, September 20, 7:40 PM

Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Bryce Young is just 5-foot-10 and 204 pounds, which hasn't allowed the team to use him for QB sneaks on third-and-short yardage. Plus, he doesn't have experience doing it. In the Monday night loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Panthers had to bring in backup Andy Dalton in those situations. It could be an issue for the offense moving forward. Young struggled in the Week 2 loss, and the offense went 4-for-14 on third downs, with Young going 4-for-9 for 32 yards with two sacks and two scrambles in those situations. His offensive line did him no favors, but he also struggled under pressure, going 3-for-8 for 13 yards with four sacks and a fumble when under pressure against a strong defense. The 22-year-old still doesn't have a completion over 15 yards through two games, and he doesn't really have explosive playmakers at his disposal.
