2021 Fantasy Outlook
McCloud appeared in every game for the Steelers in 2020, but he only recorded 142 yards from scrimmage and ranked fifth among the team's wide receivers in offensive snaps. As long as Pittsburgh's key pass catchers remain healthy, McCloud is unlikely to have a meaningful role in the team's offense. Read Past Outlooks

Targeted nine times in Week 18

McCloud caught four of nine targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
McCloud had a consistent target share across the final three weeks of the regular season with at least eight targets in each of those games. However, he mustered only four catches in each appearance and failed to top 40 yards in any of those matchups. The 25-year-old appeared in 16 of 17 games during the regular season and caught 39 of 66 targets for 277 yards while rushing twice for 15 yards. He's slated to become an unrestricted free agent ahead of the 2022 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
As a rookie, McCloud, a sixth-rounder out of Clemson, caught five of just six targets for 36 yards over the course of 10 games in 2018. He also returned one kickoff for 18 yards and four punts for 20 yards. Given the Bills' wideout woes last season, the team signed John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency, moves that don't favor McCloud's chances of moving up the depth chart. With Zay Jones and Robert Foster still in the mix, McCloud will need a break or two to go his way before he comes close to approaching fantasy relevance. UPDATE: McCloud was cut by the Bills on Aug. 31 and is currently a free agent.
McCloud, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, is entering a crowded wideout corps that lacks explosive talents. His college stat line doesn't scream that he'll be that guy, however, with just four receiving touchdowns in three years. McCloud will serve as a depth asset if he makes the team.
