  • Pat Freiermuth Quiet In Week 12 MNF Win

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught three of his four targets for 39 yards in a 24-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12.

Freiermuth has been a consistent receiving option for the Steelers in 2022 as he's caught at least four passes in all but three of his games played this season. Freiermuth will be a TE1 heading into a Week 13 road matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Freiermuth led the Steelers in targets and catches while finishing second behind only George Pickens in receiving yardage in the loss. The second-year tight end has emerged as one of Kenny Pickett's favorites in the passing game as he's drawn 35 targets over his past four contests. Freiermuth will be a solid TE1 heading into a Week 12 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on the road.

  • Pat Freiermuth A Solid TE Option In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth has caught 16 of his 23 targets for 168 yards over his past three games. He will look to keep it going against the Cincinnati Bengals at home in Week 11. The Bengals have been effective against tight ends this season, allowing the 13th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position through nine games. Freiermuth has emerged as an integral piece of the Pittsburgh passing offense and should be a prominent part of the game plan in Week 11. Treat him as a mid-range TE1 in fantasy this weekend.

  • Pat Freiermuth Finishes With 36 Yards In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught four of his seven targets for 36 yards in a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Freiermuth's seven targets led the team while he finished third on the team in receiving yardage. The second-year tight end has just one touchdown on the season but he has drawn at least seven targets in six of his eight contests. Freiermuth will be a solid TE1 in Week 11's divisional matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Pat Freiermuth A Solid Option In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will face off against the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. Freiermuth should see a larger target share moving forward as the Steelers traded wideout Chase Claypool to the Chicago Bears after Week 8. That will open up more work for Freiermuth, who has operated as the team's No. 2 option in the passing game this season. The Saints have been tough on opposing tight ends in 2022, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Treat Freiermuth as a low-end TE1 heading into Week 10.

  • Pat Freiermuth Catches Four Passes In Week 8

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught four of his seven targets for 57 yards in a 35-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. Freiermuth wound up leading the Steelers in receiving yards while tying for first in catches and finishing second in targets in the blowout loss. The second-year tight end has been productive in 2022, catching at least four passes in five of his seven contests. Freiermuth will be on bye in Week 9 but has a matchup at home against the New Orleans Saints coming up in Week 10. He will remain a rock-solid TE1 in fantasy for that game.

  • Pat Freiermuth A Solid TE1 In Week 8

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught a season-high eight passes for 75 yards in a loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. Freiermuth will head on the road to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8 as he looks to continue his recent success. The Eagles have been decent against opposing tight ends in 2022, allowing the 19th-most fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, Freiermuth has drawn at least seven targets in four of his six contests this season. Treat him as a mid-range TE1 in fantasy heading into Week 8.

  • Pat Freiermuth A Full-Go On Thursday

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (ankle) practiced in full on Thursday after he was limited on Wednesday. Freiermuth missed Week 6 due to a concussion but returned in last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins with eight catches for a team-high 75 yards. Barring a setback on Friday, the second-year tight end should be good to go for this weekend's meeting with the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. In a game in which the Steelers will probably be throwing a lot, Freiermuth is a solid TE1 choice for fantasy managers. In his six games so far in 2022, Freiermuth has 28 catches on 41 targets for 310 yards and one touchdown for the Steelers.

  • Pat Freiermuth Limited Wednesday

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday. After missing Week 6 due to a concussion, the 24-year-old returned to action last Sunday night against the Miami Dolphins. He caught eight of his nine targets for 75 yards in the Week 7 loss. Freiermuth was limited with an ankle issue but should be available for Sunday's contest against Philadelphia Eagles. Freiermuth is a borderline TE1 against an Eagles defense that ranks 11 in DVOA against opposing tight ends this season.

  • Pat Freiermuth Hauls In Eight Catches Vs. Dolphins

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught eight of his nine targets for 75 yards in a 16-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. Freiermuth wound up leading the team in catches and receiving yards while finishing second in targets in his first game back from a concussion. The second-year tight end has emerged as a quality option at a position where production has been tough to come by as he now has 28 catches for 310 yards and a touchdown in six games in 2022. He will look to keep it going in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Pat Freiermuth Will Return On Sunday Night

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) will play on Sunday versus the Dolphins. The 23-year-old didn't suit up in Week 6 due to a concussion. However, he practiced in full all week, erasing all doubt regarding his availability. Freiermuth has been a hit-or-miss fantasy option this season and has 20 catches for 235 yards and a touchdown. Fantasy managers should expect the worst and hope for the best.

  • Pat Freiermuth A TE1 Vs. Miami

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth missed his team's Week 6 game with a concussion but he has since cleared the league's concussion protocol. He will suit up against the Miami Dolphins on the road in Week 7's Sunday night game. The Dolphins have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, giving Freiermuth a plus matchup for his return to the lineup. Freiermuth can be treated as a low-end TE1 in fantasy heading into Week 7.

  • Kenny Pickett, Pat Freiermuth Clear Concussion Protocol

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett, tight end Pat Freiermuth and cornerback Levi Wallace have all cleared the league's concussion protocol and are all on track to play on Sunday night against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. Pickett put in a full week of practice after leaving last week's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early due to a head injury. The 24-year-old will return to starting duties and will continue being a low-end QB2 option in superflex leagues. Freiermuth missed the Week 6 game but will return for Sunday Night Football. The 23-year-old second-year tight end has 20 receptions (32 targets) for 235 yards and a touchdown in his five games so far this year. He'll be on the TE1/2 borderline for his return against Miami.

  • Pat Freiermuth Practices In Full Wednesday

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) was able to practice in full on Wednesday after he missed the Week 6 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It means that barring a setback, he should be able to gain clearance to return in Week 7 on Sunday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins. Freiermuth caught both of his targets for just 12 yards before suffering his concussion in Week 5. After an impressive rookie campaign in 2021, the second-year tight end has 20 catches on 32 targets for 235 yards and one touchdown in his five games so far this year. If he gets the green light to play against Miami, Freiermuth will profile as a high-end, touchdown-dependent TE2 for fantasy managers.

  • Pat Freiermuth Expected To Be Cleared For Week 7

    The expectation is that Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) will be cleared to play in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night. Steelers.com's Dale Lolley reports that head coach Mike Tomlin said Freiermuth is scheduled to return to practice on Wednesday after sitting out the Week 6 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his absence last Sunday, Zach Gentry caught his only target for just four yards. Before getting injured in Week 5, Freiermuth caught seven of nine targets for a season-high 85 yards in Week 4 against the New York Jets. The second-year tight end will be on the TE1/2 borderline if he returns to action in Week 7 against the Dolphins.

  • Pat Freiermuth To Miss Week 6

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will miss the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he suffered a concussion in the loss to the Buffalo Bills last week. This should open up more targets for Chase Claypool, Dionte Johnson, and George Pickens, but Zach Gentry could be a factor, too. Ultimately, the Buccaneers' front seven will likely terrorize rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett, so all Steelers' pass-catchers carry plenty of risk into this game.

  • Pat Freiermuth Limited Again Thursday

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) was limited in practice for the second straight day this week on Thursday, but he remains in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the Week 5 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The 23-year-old has already suffered multiple concussions in his two years in the NFL, so he's by no means a lock to make it back in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If he isn't cleared by Sunday's game, Zach Gentry and Connor Heyward would split repetitions at tight end for Pittsburgh. Fantasy managers that have been using Freiermuth as their starting tight end through five weeks should look in another direction this week. He has 20 catches on 32 targets for 235 yards and five touchdowns to this point.

  • Pat Freiermuth Listed As Non-Participant

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) was listed as a non-participant in practice on Wednesday. In addition to Freiermuth, Zach Gentry (knee) also missed practice, so the Steelers are hurting at the position heading into Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If both Freiermuth and Gentry are unable to play this weekend, Connor Heyward would be the Steelers' top pass-catching tight end. Before leaving last week's loss to the Buffalo Bills, Freiermuth caught both of his targets for 12 yards. Fantasy managers should consider him very questionable to play this Sunday, and if you've been rolling with him as your starting TE, you need to be looking for backup options in Week 6.

  • Pat Freiermuth Ruled Out With Concussion

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills. He finished the day with just two catches for 12 yards. The 23-year-old will have one week to get healthy before next Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his absence, Zach Gentry and Connor Heyward should see more snaps.

  • Pat Freiermuth A TE1 In Week 5

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will go on the road to take on the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. Freiermuth is off to a nice start in 2022, having caught 18 of his 30 targets for 223 yards and a touchdown through four games. His matchup against Buffalo is a tough one as the Bills are allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends thus far this year. Freiermuth should continue to see a decent target share but his tough matchup makes him more of a low-end TE1 in fantasy for Week 5.

Freiermuth wound up leading the Steelers in catches and targets while finishing second behind George Pickens in receiving yards. The second-year tight end has been productive through four games, having caught 18 passes and a touchdown through four games. He will be a TE1 in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Pat Freiermuth's Week 4 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth is his team's second-leading receiver with 11 catches for 138 yards and a touchdown through three games. Freiermuth will look to keep it going in a Week 4 home matchup against the New York Jets. The Jets have been moderately tough on tight ends thus far, allowing the 20th-most fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, the lack of quality options at the tight end position in fantasy makes a player like Freiermuth a weekly TE1. He should be starting in most fantasy lineups heading into Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught two of his four targets for 41 yards in a 29-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. Freiermuth was on his way to getting shut out before he came down with a pair of catches on Pittsburgh's final drive of the fourth quarter. The second-year tight end now has 11 catches and one touchdown through three games. He will be a low-end TE1 in Week 4's game against the New York Jets.

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught a touchdown in his team's Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots. Freiermuth will look to continue his success in Week 3's Thursday game against the Cleveland Browns. The second-year tight end fared well against Cleveland in two games in 2021, catching nine balls for 66 yards and a touchdown. Freiermuth sets up as a mid-range TE1 in fantasy for Week 3.

  • Pat Freiermuth's Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth led his team with 75 receiving yards in a 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. The second-year tight end showed nice chemistry with new quarterback Mitch Trubisky, drawing 10 targets, good for second on the team. Freiermuth will look to keep it going at home against the New England Patriots in Week 2. The Patriots were tough on opposing tight ends in 2021, allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, Freiermuth appears to be on the verge of a breakout in 2022 and needs to be treated as an every week TE1 until he proves otherwise. Freiermuth should be active in fantasy for Week 2.

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught five of his 10 targets for 75 yards in a 23-20 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. Freiermuth was impressive in the win, leading the Steelers in receiving yards. It was an encouraging sign as Freiermuth operated as the No. 2 option in the passing game, behind only Diontae Johnson. The second-year tight end is primed for a breakout year heading into Week 2 against the New England Patriots. Treat him as a solid TE1 for that contest.

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will open up his 2022 season in a road matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. The second-year tight end impressed in 2021 as a rookie, catching 60 passes for 497 yards and seven touchdowns despite splitting snaps with Eric Ebron. Ebron is no longer in town, leaving Freiermuth to operate as the team's clear No. 1 tight end. The Bengals were weak against tight ends in 2021, allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the position. Treat Freiermuth as a solid TE1 for Week 1.
