  Patriots | Donte Moncrief added to roster for Week 11    Sat Nov 21, 04:40 PM

New England Patriots WR Donte Moncrief was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Nov. 21, for the game Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: This move comes one day after N'Keal Harry was added to the injury report and labeled as questionable with a shoulder injury. We don't think Moncrief will get a lot of work if he's active for Week 11.

Free-agent DL Ryan Glasgow (Texans) and WR Donte Moncrief (Patriots) were signed to the practice squad of the New England Patriots Wednesday, Nov. 4.

  Jets | Donte Moncrief signs with NYJ    Mon Aug 31, 09:34 AM

Free-agent WR Donte Moncrief signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets Monday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: The Jets have a banged up WR corps with both Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims injured and missing time. Moncrief failed to impress in 2019 with either the Steelers or the Panthers and is no lock for the 53-man roster...even with those other injuries.

  Jets | NYJ expected to sign Donte Moncrief    Sat Aug 29, 09:40 AM

Updating previous reports, the New York Jets plan to sign free-agent WR Donte Moncrief (Panthers) once he passes COVID-19 protocols, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets have a seriously banged up WR corps...mainly Breshad Perriman (knee) and rookie Denzel Mims (hamstring) who are two of their top three receivers. Moncrief has failed to impress and 2019 he struggled with limited duty for the Panthers and the Steelers. He won't be a lock for the final roster.

Free-agent QB Kyle Lauletta (Eagles), WR Donte Moncrief (Panthers) and WR DeAndre Thompkins (Eagles) tried out for the New York Jets Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: The Jets are desperately thin at the WR position. They signed WR Chris Hogan on Wednesday but they might also want to consider Moncrief.

  Jets | Donte Moncrief may work out    Wed Aug 19, 02:07 PM

Free-agent WR Donte Moncrief (Panthers) is expected to work out for the New York Jets if he is able to pass his COVID-19 testing, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Moncrief played with both the Steelers and the Panthers last year...and he was released with a few weeks remaining in the 2019 season. He's been out of the league since then, but Moncrief has been getting some workouts here and there. We'll see if the Jets decide to bring him in.

  Panthers | Carolina claims Donte Moncrief    Mon Nov 4, 04:28 PM

Former Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief was claimed off waivers by the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 4.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Moncrief can get up to speed quickly with his new team. He's the fourth wide receiver on the depth chart...at best. Moncrief has no fantasy value in his current role.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief waived    Sat Nov 2, 04:07 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief was waived Saturday, Nov. 2. RB Tony Brooks-James was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Moncrief did not do much for the Steelers other than drop passes early in the season. The Steelers move on with Diontae Johnson and James Washington working in the mix behind JuJu Smith-Schuster. We'll see if Moncrief gets some interest now that he's available.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief to play through finger injury    Thu Sep 12, 08:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief (finger) will keep playing through a dislocated finger suffered in training camp. '(QB Ben Roethlisberger's) depending on me and I've got to make plays for him, hurt finger or not,' Moncrief said. 'There's nothing you can do to a dislocated finger, especially when you're a receiver. You've just got to tough out the pain and go.'

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief (finger) had not practiced for six straight days with a broken ring finger before returning to the field Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Moncrief appears to be penciled as the #2 receiver in Pittsburgh despite the injury but James Washington and Diontae Johnson will play a role along with one of Eli Rogers or Ryan Switzer in the slot.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief frontrunner to start    Wed Aug 7, 09:02 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief is listed as the starter across from JuJu Smith-Schuster on the initial depth chart ahead of the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: We're watching this No. 2 situation for the Steelers closely in the preseason. Moncrief is the top option right now but guys like James Washington and rookie Diontae Johnson are also competing for that starting job.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief suffers apparent injury    Tue Jul 30, 02:43 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief (finger) suffered an apparent finger injury on a deep ball during practice Monday, July 29.

Footballguys view: Moncrief had been building momentum in his bid for the #2 job, but this could slow it down. James Washington and Diontae Johnson are also vying for playing time behind Juju Smith-Schuster.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief opens as starter    Sat Jul 27, 10:31 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief opened practice as the starting receiver across from WR JuJu Smith-Schuster Saturday, July 27.

Footballguys view: This should put a damper on James Washington's value, although Moncrief's ADP shouldn't really pick up unless we see evidence that the role won't be split. Rookie Diontae Johnson offers different strengths than Moncrief and Washington and may figure into this picture.

  Steelers | Confidence growing in Donte Moncrief    Sun Jun 30, 01:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief is entering 2019 training camp as the team's most-experienced wide receiver and is drawing the praise of receivers coach Daryl Drake and others in the organization. 'One thing that he's doing right now, he's playing with a lot of confidence,' Drake said. 'And Ben has confidence in him. So we just got to continue for him to grow and continue for him to do the things that we ask him to do.'

Footballguys view: Moncrief is establishing trust with his new coaches and teammates, which is a good thing, but he has been a chronic underachiever in previous stops at Indianapolis and Jacksonville. He's on the fringe of draftable player in typical redraft leagues, but could get squarely in the late round mix with a good camp and preseason.

  Steelers | Donte Moncrief listed as No. 3 receiver    Sun Jun 30, 10:17 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief is currently slotted as the team's No. 3 receiver and could move up or down the depth chart depending on the development of WRs James Washington and Diontae Johnson.

Footballguys view: This will be a fluid situation in camp and a tough one to project, as Vance McDonald could be as high as #2 in the pecking order for targets and the team could also carve out a larger role in the passing game for Jaylen Samuels. Right now Washington is probably the best one to draft of the trio, but the situation could settle into a wide receiver by committee and keep any of them from having consistent value.

  Steelers | Big role for Donte Moncrief?    Fri Jun 7, 09:51 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief said he has 'the potential to make a big impact' in the passing game and believes the receiving group can be 'electric' in 2019.

Footballguys view: The Steelers (and Fantasy GMs) are looking for their Antonio Brown replacement in 2019. JuJu Smith-Schuster will do his thing as the No. 1 receiver, but behind him there is a hole from Brown being traded away to the Raiders. We'll see if James Washington or Moncrief or rookie Deiontae Johnson emerges as a viable option behind Smith-Schuster in the WR corps.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh hoping to spread the wealth    Mon Jun 3, 02:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is the 'obvious primary option' in the passing game, but the team believes it will have at least nine viable pass-catching options, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. TE Vance McDonald is 'poised for an expanded role,' while WR Donte Moncrief is being asked to learn all three receiver positions.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs know that Smith-Schuster is going to be a stud WR1 in 2019, but behind him there is nothing but potential breakout players and question marks. We'll be monitoring these battles at the Steelers WR position closely in training camp. Smith-Schuster is going off the board at WR6 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. The other Steelers receivers currently being drafted include James Washington (WR46, 10.06) and Donte Moncrief (WR59, 13.12). In a high-powered Steelers passing attack, these are players to follow to and through training camp and the preseason.

  Jets | Donte Moncrief in NYJ's sights?    Tue Feb 26, 01:35 PM

Impending free-agent WR Donte Moncrief (Jaguars) is a target of the New York Jets, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Moncrief had some moments but languished mostly in an offense that was in the bottom 3-5 of the league. He still has value as a size/speed threat, but his deal this year will be less than the surprising nine million he got from the Jaguars last year.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief had five receptions (on 10 targets) for 47 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Moncrief could have had a bigger night but he had two deep balls go off of his fingertips for incompletions. He's only deep bench depth heading into a matchup with Washington.

  Jaguars | Donte Moncrief has an opening    Mon Aug 27, 11:51 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief has an opening to a starting receiver spot with WR Marqise Lee (knee) out for the season.

Footballguys view: Moncrief should get more looks now that Marqise Lee is done for the year. How much fantasy value do those extra looks may have is debatable. Keelan Cole likely gets the most boost with the Lee injury. Dede Westbrook will factor into the mix here as well.
