Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers WR George Pickens
Pickens burst onto the fantasy scene with six catches for 102 yards in Week 4 against the New York Jets. He followed that up with another six-catch performance (83 yards) in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. However, the rookie has been up-and-down from that point. His last game (Week 8 at Philadelphia Eagles) was the lowest of lows, as he finished with zero catches on three targets.
Start or sit in Week 10?
Pickens is a WR3 or borderline FLEX option in Week 10. It’s hard to start a player coming off a goose egg in the previous game, but let’s not forget that Pickens went for 14+ fantasy points in three of four games prior to that. The Saints rank middle-of-the-pack in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, so Pickens could get back into the mix this weekend.
