Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is listed without an injury designation after getting in a full practice on Wednesday. Claypool will suit up against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14's Thursday Night Football game. The second-year wideout has been playing through a toe injury over the past few weeks, although it will not prevent him from taking the field on Thursday in a plus matchup against Minnesota. Claypool has a chance to have a big game as the Vikings are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in 2021. Although he has just one touchdown on the year, Claypool has been reasonably productive of late as he has at least 52 receiving yards in each of his past three games. Treat him as a solid WR3 for Week 14.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice after being held out on Monday. This is a great sign for his availability on Thursday night, so fantasy managers will likely be able to roll out the sophomore in a good matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Claypool had just three targets against the Ravens after seeing eight targets in Week 11 and nine in Week 12, so the big deep threat should be able to see an uptick in volume after last week. Still, he has found the endzone just one time this season, so he isn't a reliable fantasy option as Diontae Johnson has operated as the clear alpha receiver in the Pittsburgh offense. In deeper leagues, he may be worth a start as a WR3/FLEX option solely based on the plus matchup with the porous Minnesota pass defense.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) remains on the injury report for Week 14 and was listed as a DNP on Monday's estimated practice report. Claypool missed the Week 10 tie against the Detroit Lions with his toe injury, but he has played ever since and should be good to go for this Thursday's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. The second-year product out of Notre Dame had been trending up in recent weeks, but he disappointed once again in the Week 13 win over the Baltimore Ravens and their porous pass defense with a 2-52-0 line on Sunday. Diontae Johnson, who had two more touchdowns, is the team's clear No. 1 wideout. The Vikings have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to pass-catchers this year, but Claypool will remain in the WR3/flex mix in Week 14.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught two of three targets for 52 yards in a 20-19 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13. Claypool finished second on the team in receiving, despite only drawing three targets from Ben Roethlisberger. The second-year wideout continues to contribute splash plays in 2021, but unfortunately, deep passing has not been a strong point to Roethlisberger's game this year. Claypool will remain a boom/bust WR3 in Week 14's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is starting to show some consistency after an up-and-down first half of the season. Over his past two games, Claypool has eight catches for 175 yards on 17 targets. He will look for more success in Week 13's home matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have been a neutral matchup for receivers this year, allowing the 16th-fewest fantasy points per game. With only one touchdown on 69 targets in 2021, Claypool is certainly due for some positive regression in the scoring department. Treat him as a WR3 for Week 13.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was back to a full practice on Thursday after he was limited on Wednesday. Claypool has been managing a toe injury for the last couple weeks, but he will be out there in Week 13 against the division-rival Baltimore Ravens. The second-year wideout has just one touchdown on the season and has been a bit of a disappointment to his fantasy managers ever since JuJu Smith-Schuster was ruled out for the year. However, he has picked it up in the last two games, catching eight of his 17 targets for 175 yards (21.88 yards per reception). Against a leaky Ravens secondary that is surrendering the most passing yards per game this year, Claypool has WR2 upside in Week 13. Fire him up.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice session. Claypool missed the Week 10 game with his toe injury, but he was all good last week before returning to the injury report this week. The 23-year-old hasn't been limited in games the last two weeks, though, so the Steelers are likely just resting him early in the week. Fantasy managers have been left wanting more from Claypool since JuJu Smith-Schuster was lost for the season, but he does have a quiet eight catches for 175 yards on 17 targets in the last two games, and he could go off as an upside WR3/flex this Sunday against a Baltimore Ravens secondary that has allowed the most passing yards per game this season.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught three of eight targets for 82 yards in a 41-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12. While he posted an inefficient receiving line on an afternoon where his team was out of it by halftime, Claypool still finished second on the team in receiving and targets, bolstered by a 41-yard reception in the first quarter. Sitting at just one touchdown after scoring 11 last year in his rookie campaign, Claypool has settled in as a boom/bust WR3. He will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) said that he's been dealing with a bad case of turf toe after he was tackled with his toe flexed. Claypool didn't play in Week 10 but returned last Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers and caught five of his nine targets for 93 yards. He's mainly been a disappointment since JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a season-ending injury because he has only found the end zone one time in eight games, but Claypool is the No. 2 receiver behind Diontae Johnson and he has been seeing plenty of red-zone looks from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Claypool will be on the WR3/flex map in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals, but the Bengals have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position in the last three weeks.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool played through a toe injury to post a five-catch, 93-yard game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. He told reporters on Thursday that he is playing through a case of turf toe, although it has not caused him to miss any practice time so far this week. Claypool will square off against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 12. The Bengals have been tough on opposing wide receivers this season, allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. Claypool has been boom/bust in the hot-and-cold Pittsburgh offense this year, leaving him as a WR3 for Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught five of nine targets for 93 yards and added two rushes for one yard in a 41-37 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. Claypool looked good in his return from a one-game absence, picking up chunk plays and getting open downfield. The second-year wide receiver has been up-and-down this season but he has plenty of upside, which warrants weekly high-end flex value in fantasy. He draws a nice matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was removed from the injury report on Friday and will suit up against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. Claypool missed his team's game against the Detroit Lions in Week 10 but he is feeling healthy enough to take the field against the Chargers. While Claypool will be back, it remains to be seen who his quarterback is going to be. Ben Roethlisberger remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list and his status for Sunday is a big question mark. If Roethlisberger is not activated, Mason Rudolph will make his second straight start, lowering the projected outlook for the entire Steelers offense in the process. Claypool can be treated as a high-end WR3 if Roethlisberger plays and a low-end option if it is Rudolph under center.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was limited in practice again on Thursday. Claypool was inactive in last week's tie with the Detroit Lions, but two limited practices to begin the week have him trending towards a return to action for Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers. The downside is that Claypool hasn't really taken advantage of JuJu Smith-Schuster's season-ending injury and will be facing one of the better pass defenses in the Chargers if he returns this weekend. Oh, and Ben Roethlisberger isn't a lock to return from the COVID-19 list in time for Sunday's game. As things stand now, Claypool is a risky WR3/flex heading into Week 11.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) will practice on Wednesday. On Monday night, he suffered a toe injury in the Week 9 win over the Chicago Bears and missed Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. The 23-year-old has 29 catches on 52 targets for 433 yards and a touchdown over seven games in 2021. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his practice status throughout the week, but Claypool is trending in the right direction to suit up in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Notre Dame product should return to his role as the Steelers WR2 alongside No. 1 receiver Diontae Johnson, and how he progresses during practice this week will determine if he's active for Sunday's game. Stay tuned.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe), who suffered a toe injury in the Week 9 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday night, missed practice for a second straight day on Friday and has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. Claypool has 29 catches for 433 yards and a touchdown this year, but he hasn't really been able to take advantage since JuJu Smith-Schuster was ruled out for the rest of the season. The 23-year-old was listed as week-to-week, so there's a chance he might also miss Week 11. With Claypool out, both James Washington and Ray-Ray McCloud will take on bigger roles alongside No. 1 receiver Diontae Johnson. Running back Najee Harris could have a monster game against the winless Lions in this one.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) missed practice on Thursday. Analyzing Claypool goes far beyond the injury however; the sophomore definitely holds immense upside, but as long as Ben Roethlisberger is his quarterback, his skills will be left underutilized. Although his talent flashes constantly, Claypool has more than 10 fantasy points in just 33 percent of his career games in standard fantasy scoring. If the youngster ends up missing time, that merely provides an excuse to cut an already unproductive wideout. Of course, don't drop him if there are alternatives, but Claypool is droppable if needed. However, in Dynasty, the 23-year-old remains an extremely valuable asset, just note that his value may not come through this year.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) is now considered week-to-week after his toe injury was initially feared to be potentially season-ending, according to a source. Claypool didn't practice on Wednesday and is on the wrong side of questionable for Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. The 23-year-old hasn't really seen an increase in production since JuJu Smith-Schuster was ruled out for the rest of the season, and now his fantasy managers must prepare for him to potentially miss some time. If Claypool is out this Sunday, James Washington and Ray-Ray McCloud would likely serve as the second and third receivers, respectively, behind Diontae Johnson. Washington figures to be the better single-season flier, while both wideouts might be worth considering as DFS sleepers at the position against the winless Lions.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe) did not participate in the team's walkthrough on Wednesday. Since it was a walkthrough, we don't want to read too much into it, but Claypool did get an MRI on his toe on Tuesday, so it's clearly bothering him. We need to see the practice reports over the next few days to know whether Claypool will play his full set of snaps, limited snaps, or perhaps sit out entirely. Fantasy managers who have Claypool should ensure they have a back-up plan, just in case. If Claypool does sit, it would likely mean more targets for Diontae Johnson and also Ray-Ray McCloud, who has emerged as the team's slot wide receiver in the wake of the JuJu Smith-Schuster injury
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool turned in another slow outing in a 29-27 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 9's Monday Night Football game. Claypool finished with three catches for 30 yards on five targets while adding 13 rushing yards on two carries. He got off to a fast start, hauling in a 26-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger on the first drive of the game, but that was the most noise that Claypool would make in the contest. He did draw a handful of end zone targets during the contest but was unable to connect with Roethlisberger for a score. Claypool also appeared to get banged up during the fourth quarter but he was able to return after a few plays after limping off. Provided that he's in the clear injury-wise, Claypool could have a big game in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions' vulnerable secondary.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool has caught just six passes for 62 yards combined over his past two games. He will look to get back on track in Week 9's Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears. Chicago represents a plus matchup for Claypool as their defense is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wideouts in 2021. Claypool tends to bring a boom/bust element to the game but he needs to be in fantasy lineups in Week 9 as his potential to go boom against a suspect Chicago secondary is high. Treat Claypool as an upside WR3 in Week 9.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught four of five targets for 45 yards and added 16 yards on two carries in a 15-10 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 8. While fantasy gamers are certainly disappointed that they have not gotten any of the multi-touchdown magic that Claypool flashed in his rookie season in 2020, he has done enough to merit status as an every-week WR3 in fantasy. He will go against the Chicago Bears at home in Week 9.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (hamstring) was practicing in full on Thursday after he was limited in Wednesday's session. Claypool's hamstring is still bothering him a bit coming out of the bye week, but he should be just fine for a Week 8 matchup with the division-rival Cleveland Browns. He's coming off a disappointing 2-17-0 line in Week 6, although he did play 84% of the offensive snaps after playing 55% the previous week. And the 23-year-old has a tasty matchup against a Browns D that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to receivers in the last three weeks. Claypool will remain one of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's top targets and has a nice opportunity for a bounce-back game this weekend. Treat him as a WR2/3 with upside.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (hamstring) comes out of his Week 7 bye to take on the Cleveland Browns on the road in Week 8. Claypool disappointed in his last game, catching just two passes for 17 yards, but he should bounce back in a plus matchup against Cleveland in Week 8. Cleveland has struggled to contain opposing receivers this season, allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position. The Browns could be without top cornerback Denzel Ward (hamstring), which would be a boost to Claypool's fantasy stock. Claypool continues to show a boom/bust element in his game in his second year but he can be used as a solid WR2 in Week 8 against Cleveland.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (hamstring) remains on the injury report coming off the team's bye week and heading into a Week 8 meeting with the division-rival Cleveland Browns. Claypool got in a limited practice session on Wednesday, but he should be fine to play this weekend. The 23-year-old missed Week 4, went off for 130 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 and then put up a dud in Week 6 (2-17-0) before the bye week. The good news is he had a full workload in Week 6, and barring a setback, he should be one of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's top targets against a Cleveland defense that has allowed 611 receiving yards and six touchdowns on 43 catches to wideouts in the last three weeks. Claypool should be considered a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 on Halloween.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool turned in a disappointing performance in a 23-20 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6. Claypool finished with just two catches for 17 yards in the win, despite tying for second on the team with seven targets. The second-year wideout and Ben Roethlisberger just couldn't get on the same page on Sunday night. Despite Claypool's slow outing, the arrow is pointing up for him going forward with JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) out for the remainder of the season. Claypool and the Steelers have their bye in Week 7 before they head to Cleveland to take on the Browns in Week 8.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
