RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Dri Archer.

2015

Although he is not big enough to be an every down back, Archer is one of the fastest players in the NFL. Limited to just 17 touches in his rookie season, Archer has great hands out of the backfield, and the Steelers will look to create opportunities to get him the ball more often. The addition of free agent DeAngelo Williams should not interfere with their plans, and Archer could be a sneaky fantasy play in the event Le’Veon Bell goes down.

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.
