2021 Fantasy Outlook
Gentry didn't see the field during the first half of the 2020 campaign and suffered a knee injury in Week 11 that kept him out for the rest of the year. He's been targeted just once in six career games and will slot in behind Eric Ebron and rookie Pat Freiermuth in 2021. Read Past Outlooks

Four catches in Week 18

Gentry secured four of five targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Gentry matched his highest totals of the year in targets, catches and yards during Sunday's regular-season finale as the Steelers managed to punch their ticket to the playoffs. The 25-year-old had inconsistent results in 2021 while operating mainly as a depth tight end, and he caught 19 of 25 targets for 167 yards across 17 appearances. The 2019 fifth-rounder will likely have the chance to enter the 2022 campaign as the Steelers' secondary option at tight end if Eric Ebron (knee) leaves in free agency, but he'll need to have more consistent production in the passing game if he hopes to become fantasy relevant.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A target-deprived Gentry -- just one in four games last season -- now finds himself behind Vance McDonald and free-agent acquisition Eric Ebron heading in to 2020. In an offense that typically underutilizes tight ends this does not bode well for Gentry's fantasy value if he remains with Pittsburgh.
Gentry, who the Steelers took in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, will compete with Xavier Grimble for the number two spot on the team's depth chart behind Vance McDonald. It's not an assignment that carries much short-term fantasy utility, but Gentry, who is not known for his blocking skills, could still see enough targets in the event of injuries to pick up some value as the season rolls along.
