Donte Moncrief comes to the Steelers after a so-so season with the Jaguars in which he caught 48 passes for 663 yards and three scores. Then again, considering Jacksonville's QB situation, that wasn't all that bad. He's in a much better situation now, and at 25, could be poised to have something of a breakout season. At worst, he and James Washington will split time playing in two and three-receiver sets opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster.
Will Moncrief get enough targets in the Steelers' offense to be fantasy relevant? Ben Roethlisberger likes him and he's the biggest of the Steelers receivers, but can he carve out anything more than a No. 4 target role in this offense?
2019 Bottom Line
Moncrief has some upside, just like James Washington. But everything is new here.
Remember this, of his 346 career targets, 141 came from Andrew Luck. The others came from QBs nowhere nearly as talented. On those targets from Luck, Moncrief produced more than 1,000 yards and 10 scores. Like teammate Washington, he has upside as the Steelers try to replace Antonio Brown's 104 receptions and 1,200 yards. Moncrief is certainly worth a late-round flier.
