James Washington has big game in win over Browns

Steelers WR James Washington continues to make big plays with Devlin “Duck” Hodges throwing him the ball

James Washington is up to four receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown against the Browns. It appears that Devlin “Duck” Hodges and Washington are on the same page, but Washington is going above and beyond. Washington has two great receptions, one, his 30 yard touchdown catch and the other, a beautiful 44-yard catch. Both required extreme concentration and balance.

Even when JuJu Smith-Schuster returns, it will be hard not to like Washington in fantasy for his upside with Hodges at quarterback.

UPDATE

The Steelers held off the Browns to get the win, due in big part to Washington’s 111 yards and touchdown. The Steelers continue to hold down a tenuous wildcard spot as they go into the last four games of the season.
