2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite not seeing a full complement of snaps until Week 3, Claypool scored 11 times as a rookie, though two of those scores came on short carries, a trick the Steelers didn’t repeat after Week 6. At 6-4, 238, Claypool is built like a tight end, albeit one who clocked a 4.42 40, making him one of the league’s freak athletes. He was the Steelers’ big-play threat last year, though Ben Roethlisberger had neither the arm nor the inclination to take many shots downfield. Claypool’s 8.0 YPT is modest by overall standards, but on a team that put up only 6.3 YPA, it was stellar. JuJu Smith-Schuster re-signed with the Steelers this offseason so his 128 targets aren’t going Claypool’s way, and the talented but drop-prone Diontae Johnson will be involved too. The bigger question, though, is whether Roethlisberger has enough arm and skill left to take advantage of Claypool’s talents. Read Past Outlooks

Fifteen targets with other WRs hurt
WRPittsburgh Steelers
September 26, 2021
Claypool caught nine of 15 targets for 96 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bengals.
ANALYSIS
Claypool ranked second behind running back Najee Harris (14 catches for 102 yards on 20 targets) in catches, receiving yards and targets, but both guys saw significant volume as Ben Roethlisberger threw 58 times as the Steelers trailed throughout. Diontae Johnson (knee) was inactive for this one and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) exited early, leaving Claypool as the top option among Pittsburgh's wide receivers. Claypool will continue to play a prominent role in Pittsburgh's passing attack against the Packers in Week 4, especially if neither Johnson nor Smith-Schuster's ready to return.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 49th pick in this year's draft, Claypool adds tight end size (6-4, 238) with wideout speed (4.42 40) to the Steelers' already-deep receiving corps. He'll probably line up in both spots, but he'll be competing with JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington and Diontae Johnson at the former and Eric Ebron and Vance McDonald at the latter. The good news for Claypool is he's the fastest of the bunch, and other than Smith-Schuster, no one's role is set in stone. Ben Roethlisberger is healthy after missing most of last year, and the Steelers should be a pass-heavy team, so there's upside if Claypool can ascend the depth chart.
