Scouting report

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Baltimore Ravens
Pat Freiermuth has been hot and cold this season. Last week, it was hot with three receptions for 76 yards. He has been capable of making plays downfield, but has also been held to short receptions.

Freiermuth faces the Ravens who are ranked 17th in aFPA to tight ends. This might be one of the better matchups for the Steelers offense this week.

Start him as a top-five fantasy tight end for Week 14. Freiermuth has found a good connection with QB Kenny Pickett and the numbers have been helpful in recent weeks.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Atlanta Falcons
Pat Freiermuth had his least productive game since Week 5 with only three receptions for 49 yards. But don't focus on that one game. He has been very good the last month. He will face the Falcons who are ranked 24th in aFPA to tight ends.

With a favorable matchup and the attention of QB Kenny Pickett, start Freiermuth as one of the top fantasy tight ends for Week 13. It should be a nice bounce back for the second year player.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Indianapolis Colts
Pat Freiermuth had a season-high 12 targets and tied his season-high with eight receptions to move his fantasy stock up the charts. He ended up with 79 receiving yards on the day. The only downside for the second-year tight end has been in the red zone where he has only one touchdown on the season.

Freiermuth will face Indianapolis who is ranked 14th in aFPA to tight ends. The Colts have done a good job against opposing wide receivers this season, but the tight ends have had some good games.

Start Freiermuth as a solid TE1 for Week 12. He might even be a top-five fantasy tight end this week as he has definitely moved up the charts as the season has progressed.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Pat Freiermuth has had seven targets and four receptions in each of the last two games. That has produced a combined 93 yards. Solid numbers, but one place that has been disappointing is the red zone where he has one touchdown all season. Last season he had seven total.

Freiermuth will face the Bengals for the second time this year. In the first meeting, he had a season-high 10 targets and ended up with 75 receiving yards. Cincy has been better against tight ends ranked 6th in aFPA against them.

Start Freiermuth for Week 11 as a solid TE1. He hasn't put up elite numbers but good enough each week to warrant a start and that TE1 ranking.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. New Orleans Saints
Pat Freiermuth has been the most consistent and reliable receiver in the Steelers' passing game. The second-year tight end was a sleeper at the beginning of the season but his numbers have been strong most weeks.

The Saints are up next for Pittsburgh and New Orleans is ranked 1st in aFPA to tight ends. Despite the tough matchup, we like the way Freiermuth fits in the Steelers offense and his connection with Kenny Pickett. Start him Week 10 as a solid TE1.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Philadelphia Eagles
A healthy Pat Freiermuth is a big deal in Pittsburgh. Last Sunday, he matched his season-high nine targets and caught a season-high eight passes for 75 yards. He has quickly become one of QB Kenny Pickett's favorite targets and the preseason hype for him as a legit TE1 seems to be accurate.

Freiermuth will face the Eagles who are ranked 18th in aFPA to tight ends. This might be the best matchup for the Steelers against a good Philly defense.

Expect a lot of a targets and good numbers again for Freiermuth. Start him as a solid TE1 for Week 8.

PIT TE Pat Freiermuth - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Miami Dolphins
The Steelers have found some success at times this season with tight end Pat Freiermuth. He didn't play last week because he suffered a concussion against Buffalo, but he has been practicing this week and should be ready to go.

Freiermuth faces Miami who is ranked 22nd in aFPA to tight ends. He should jump right back into the offense and be a factor in the middle of the field. Start Freiermuth as a solid TE1 for Week 7 as he should put up some numbers with the favorable matchup.
