  • George Pickens Turning Heads At Training Camp

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens is making a strong impression at his first training camp as a pro. The 21-year-old is making all sorts of eye-popping plays on the practice field and looks to be earning himself a significant role in the offense. Team reporter Mark Kaboly mentioned that Pickens is "one of the best wide receivers I've seen as a rookie." That is some very high praise for the former Georgia collegiate star, as the Steelers have got some impressive rookie seasons out of the likes of Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and former receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Pickens will have to compete with Johnson, Claypool, and Pat Freiermuth for targets, but his undeniable talent could still make him worth a late-round flier for fantasy managers.

  • George Pickens Looking Good Early On

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver George Pickens has been impressive early in training camp. He turned an out pattern from quarterback Mitch Trubisky on the second play of team drills on Friday and turned it into a nearly 40-yard gain before being wrestled to the ground. Pickens showed the ability to get out of his cut and turn it upfield, which contradicted many critics who have said that he isn't the best route-runner. The 21-year-old second-rounder could make some noise in Pittsburgh's offense in his first NFL season behind Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool. Rookie Calvin Austin III has also looked good early on this summer. Pickens probably shouldn't be on the radar in standard-sized fantasy leagues, but he's an intriguing selection in dynasty/keeper leagues.
