Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The second-year speedester out of Kent State didn't make much of an impact as a rookie, catching only seven passes on 10 targets in 12 games. He saw limited action as a return man, but will step into an expanded role on special teams this season. Archer returned just nine punts for 161 yards in 2014, but he racked up nearly 1,500 kick return yards and four touchdowns during his collegiate career.
Archer had three catches on four targets for 15 yards in Pittsburgh’s 30-17 Wild Card loss to Baltimore on Saturday.

2015

2014

The Steelers spent a third-round pick on Archer this year, immediately setting off a debate as to whether the scat back's ridiculous 4.26 40 time at the Combine is enough to make up for his undersized 5-8, 173-pound frame. Obviously, he has home-run speed, which helped him generate a ridiculous 9.0 YPC for Kent State in 2012 (and 7.8 last year). An accomplished kick returner who took four back for touchdowns in only 18 tries over his junior and senior years, he figures to slide into a return role while factoring into passing-down and gadget plays as well as sometimes lining up in the slot. Although Archer's surprisingly strong despite his slight build, it'd be surprising to see the Steelers use him much between the tackles, where Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount make their bacon.
