May Dynasty Roundtable

The Dynasty staff answers the burning questions on the minds of Dynasty Owners.  Contributions by Daniel Simpkins, Andy Hicks, Jason Wood, Will Grant, Dan Hindery, Sigmund Bloom, Chad Parsons, and Jeff Tefertiller.

The dynasty staffers at Footballguys will have regular Dynasty Roundtables throughout the offseason. This is the third installment with several staffers contributing.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Besides, JuJu Smith-Schuster, who in the Pittsburgh Steelers offense are you targeting to buy in dynasty leagues? Why?


I still have love for James Washington and will buy low on him where I can. I know folks are disappointed he didn't come along as fast as Juju Smith-Schuster but expecting Washington to be that kind of producer in year one was unrealistic. I am not worried about Diontae Johnson in terms of competition because I see Johnson eventually being the split end, Washington being the flanker, and Smith-Schuster playing the slot primarily. I'm counting on Washington being another example of why it's important in dynasty to be patient with player development and not bail on them if they aren't instant hits.


Benny Snell is a good cheap buy. The fact that James Conner can be productive in this offense, means that Benny Snell should just slot straight in if required. Both lack top-end speed but have good vision and thrive with more work. Given the turnover at the position and the fact his only competition is Jaylen Samuels, Snell is in an excellent buy-low candidate moving forward.


As Daniel Simpkins Daniel said, James Washington is the value now. I much prefer him to this year's rookie addition -- Diontae Johnson. Washington had nearly 5,000 receiving yards and 39 touchdowns at Oklahoma State, and just because he didn't pierce the impenetrable ceiling of Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster should not condemn him to mediocrity. He'll have the opportunity to emerge as a high volume target this year, and your window to buy low on him is closing fast.

I'm also a fan of Benny Snell. James Conner was fantastic last year, but we can't be sure of Conner's future in Pittsburgh once he's due for a big extension. Snell has the skill set to thrive in any NFL offense, but we know any capable inside runner can be a fantasy powerhouse in Pittsburgh. Snell could be next in line. I would prioritize Snell over Jaylen Samuels if you're looking to add Steelers assets.
