  • Pat Freiermuth Dealing With Hamstring Injury

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury at training camp. Freiermuth left Thursday's practice early with some lower body tightness and also sat out Friday with his hamstring issue. It doesn't sound like his injury is very serious, but the Steelers are likely to play it safe with their starting tight end and hold him out for a few days. The 23-year-old exceeded expectations in his rookie season in 2021, going for 60 catches on 79 targets for 497 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games (nine starts). Even though Pittsburgh's quarterback situation isn't ideal in the wake of Ben Roethlisberger's retirement, Freiermuth should be a nice safety blanket underneath and a solid red-zone target, giving him low-end TE1 fantasy value.

  • Pat Freiermuth Looking To Elevate His Game

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth Is hoping to have an even better season. The 23-year-old was impressive during his rookie campaign and finished by catching 60 of his 79 targets for 497 yards and seven touchdowns. Head coach Mike Tomlin has been challenging him throughout the offseason, and his teammates have also acknowledged his potential. Nevertheless, with the limited number of dependable fantasy tight ends, Freiermuth's upside appears higher than most. Ben Roethlisberger isn't around anymore after announcing his retirement. But if the former Nittany Lion can develop a rapport with Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph, or first-round pick Kenny Pickett (depending on who's starting), the sky is the limit.

  • Pat Freiermuth Could Be Even Better In 2022

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth finished with 60 catches and seven touchdowns on only 79 targets in his rookie season while playing 62% of the offensive snaps in a sometimes limited offense. With Eric Ebron gone and the Steelers expected to attack the middle of the field more with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Freiermuth's numbers could skyrocket in his sophomore season. Zach Gentry has also become a solid complementary piece with a penchant for blocking, and Connor Heyward could be a versatile depth weapon because of his athletic abilities. Freiermuth could return excellent value this year, as he's being drafted as a low-end TE1, at best.

  • Pat Freiermuth Impresses At OTAs

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth looked impressive during organized team activities this week, and The Athletic's Mark Kaboly singled him out if he had to pick an offensive player that impressed him the most. Freiermuth has sure hands, and Kaboly said 100 catches isn't out of the realm of possibility in his second season. Zach Gentry was also impressive, and the fifth-round project has turned himself into a versatile tight end. Gentry has improved his blocking since his rookie season. Freiermuth, 23, finished his first NFL season with 60 catches for 497 yards and seven touchdowns on 79 targets over 16 games (nine starts). He should be a nice midrange TE1 with excellent red-zone abilities.
