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

Quiet in playoff loss
WRPittsburgh Steelers
January 17, 2022
Claypool had three receptions on seven targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 42-21 loss to Kansas City.
ANALYSIS
JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) returned from injured reserve for Ben Roethlisberger's swan song, but Claypool still saw his usual target volume. He played poorly given the opportunities presented to him, but Roethlisberger's inaccuracy did not help any of his receiving options in his final game before retirement. That was also the story of Claypool's sophomore campaign, as he finished with 59 receptions for 860 yards and two touchdowns across 15 contests on 105 targets, giving him a mediocre 56 percent catch rate. Perhaps the large-framed wideout can rediscover his rookie magic with a new quarterback under center in 2022.

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.
