Washington has the elite skill to win the ball in the air, but his route running hasn't been precise enough to earn a starting role without injuries to players ahead of him on the depth chart. If Washington can improve his route running so he's on the same page with his quarterbacks, he has star potential. He must hold off Chase Claypool or cede significant targets. - Matt Waldman

Summary

James Washington had a breakout season in 2019, starting 10 games and finishing the season with 44 grabs for 735 yards and three touchdowns. He is a boundary receiver for the Steelers who can get down the field on the outside and tracks the ball well in the air. The Steelers offense struggled with poor quarterback play in 2019 but it didn't slow down Washington too much, especially since he was catching passes for most of the season from his college quarterback Mason Rudolph. This year, like the rest of the Steelers offense, Washington will benefit from the return of Ben Roethlisberger. Having a healthy JuJu Smith-Schuster could cut into Washington's playing time, but we still appreciate him in dynasty formats. This could be Smith-Schuster's last season with the Steelers and that means Washington could be stepping into a starting role in 2021. The ability is there, Washington (and Fantasy GMs) just need to be patient waiting for an opportunity. (May 18)
