Scouting report

PIT WR Sammie Coates - Week 6, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Miami
Coates has six receptions in each of the past two games and had a career-high 138 yards last week to go along with the first two touchdowns of his career. He also dropped at least three passes and could have caught all 11 of his targets. He's got seven stitches between his middle and index finger that will limit him in practice this week, but expect him to play and continue his rise up the WR rankings. The Steelers are intent on getting him the ball deep as his six catches of 40 yards or more in the first five games would suggest. He's a low-end No. 2 receiver with plenty of upside.

PIT WR Sammie Coates - Week 5, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New York Jets
Coates had a team-high six catches for 79 yards last week and now has five catches of 40 or more yards this season (though he has yet to score). He would have scored last week if Ben Roethlisberger had not under-thrown him on Pittsburgh's first offensive play. That will get better. The Jets secondary has been terrible this season, and Coates and Co. should be able to take advantage. Use him as a No. 3 receiver or flex play this week.

PIT WR Sammie Coates - Week 4, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Kansas City
Coates continues to be a big-play threat, hauling in a 41-yard pass last week, but he finished with three catches for 50 yards and again failed to score. The return of Le'Veon Bell will help Coates continue to get one-on-one matchups and Ben Roethlisberger likes to take a shot or two each game. But be warned, he could lose some time to Darrius Heyward-Bey this week.

PIT WR Sammie Coates - Week 3, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Philadelphia
Coates had two receptions for 97 yards last week and is averaging a healthy 38 yards per catch. Ben Roethlisberger tried to get the ball deep to the speedy receiver on five occasions, so he's going to get his shots. But he very nearly got himself benched as well for failing to keep running on a deep ball that was intercepted at the end of the first half. With Markus Wheaton coming back this week, look for Coates' snaps to be cut into. He's still worth a flex play because of the big-play ability, but not much more.

PIT WR Sammie Coates - Week 1, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Washington
Coates might not be quite ready to take Martavis Bryant's place completely, but he will run some deep routes. And Ben Roethlisberger likes to take his shots. Coates might not be a high-volume play, but he's got a lot of upside each week because of the big-play ability. Coates is a home run threat as a flex play this week.

PIT WR Sammie Coates - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Coates didn't do much in the regular season, getting lost in the shuffle as Pittsburgh's No. 5 receiver and catching just two passes for 11 yards in the regular season. But with Antonio Brown out with a concussion in the playoffs at Denver, Coates stepped up with two receptions for 61 yards on three targets. He's big and fast, with many of the same attributes as suspended Martavis Bryant. Many are putting one and one together and getting four and thinking Coates will step in for Bryant. That will happen some, but he's not going to mimic Bryant's numbers. He should have some big games, but will be a hit-and-miss prospect as a home run threat.
