Summary

Donte Moncrief has never been able to duplicate the success he had in his second year with the Indianapolis Colts back in 2015. He's going to get that chance this year with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2015, Moncrief had 64 catches for 733 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Injuries hampered him over the next two seasons with the Colts and he moved on to the Jacksonville Jaguars for the 2018 season. Last year with the Jaguars, Moncrief had 48 catches for 668 yards receiving and three touchdowns. It's not crazy to think he could nearly double those numbers in 2019. First, he's gotta stay healthy. Second, Moncrief has to win the job opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster. With Antonio Brown traded away, the Steelers have a big hole to fill at the wide receiver position. Moncrief could be that answer or he could continue to not play up to his full potential in the pros. Watch the battle between Moncrief and second-year receiver James Washington in training camp to see who wins that no.2 job in a pass-happy Steelers offense. (May 10)

Steelers | Donte Moncrief back at practice (Thu Aug 15, 12:46 PM) - 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.

Our 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.
