2020 Fantasy Outlook
Cain joined the Steelers mid-season last year and provided little more than roster depth at wide receiver. With JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, James Washington and rookie Chase Claypool ahead of him, Cain will be hard-pressed for playing time if he even makes the 53-man roster. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Cain tore his ACL during his first preseason game and subsequently missed the 2018 season. His status for 2019 remains tentative, as the 22-year-old isn't expected to be at full strength until mid-way through the campaign, according to GM Chris Ballard. The team that the 2018 sixth-rounder will ultimately rejoin likely will have better pass-catching depth, though injuries to teammates may take a toll by the time he's actually ready to play in a game.
Like the departed Donte Moncrief, who left Indianapolis in free agency this offseason, Cain stands tall at 6-foot-2 and ran the 40-yard dash in the low 4.4s. However, the sixth-round rookie isn't considered as complete of a receiver as Moncrief and even has a reputation of being nothing more than a straight-line speedster. With that said, Cain instantly popped up on the fantasy radar given the potential upside of an Andrew Luck-led offense. The rookie drew rave reviews early in training camp, but a torn ACL in the first week of the preseason brought an immediate end to his campaign.
