We have reached the final week of the NFL regular season which brings an end to the fantasy football season. This could be the final game of the season for Pittsburgh Steelers' rookie tight end, Pat Freiermuth as the Steelers haven’t clinched a playoff spot just yet.

Freiermuth has had a productive rookie year that has to have fantasy managers and Steelers fans alike excited for the future. Before we get there though, the Steelers have one final game of the regular season and they will take on their AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth

The Ravens are giving up the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. This is a great matchup for Freiermuth and he should see his usual volume in the receiving game. The only knock on his value and likely ranking would just be that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been limited with how many passing yards he has had in recent games. The good news is that Freiermuth remains the top red zone target for the Steelers which gives him upside.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

START Freiermuth this week.
