Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Ayers caught six passes playing in just two games during his rookie campaign, followed by sports-hernia surgery on both sides of his legs. The Steelers have a lot of wide receiver depth, so Ayers will be hard-pressed to land a spot on the 53-man roster.
Selected in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Ayers will compete with Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates for a backup receiver spot behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. Ayers is undersized (5-foot-9, 182 pounds) and more likely to fill a special team's role if he does make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
