Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth

There’s good news and bad news as it pertains to Freiermuth’s fantasy prospects. Let’s start with the good news: Freiermuth has seen seven or more targets in four of his last five games. The bad news: he only has one touchdown on the season. Still, Freiermuth is an omnipresent red-zone target due to his 6’5” frame. He’ll keep flirting with double-digit targets, which should eventually lead to some scoring chances.

Start or sit in Week 11?

Start. While it hasn’t been pretty for Freiermuth this season, he’s a borderline top-five tight end option for Week 11. He’ll look to build on his 5 receptions (10 targets) for 75 yards against the Bengals in Week 1.
