23-Year-Old Tight EndTE
Pittsburgh Steelers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Freiermuth was the second tight end selected in the 2021 NFL Draft after he spent three seasons at Penn State. He totaled 69 receptions for 875 yards and 15 touchdowns in his first two seasons with the Nittany Lions and hauled in 23 catches for 310 yards and a touchdown in four games last year before he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Eric Ebron will still likely handle most of the tight end duties in 2021, but Freiermuth could compete for targets as a rookie after Vance McDonald retired during the offseason. Read Past Outlooks

Racks up 53 yards against Ravens
TEPittsburgh Steelers
January 10, 2022
Freiermuth brought in six of nine targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Freiermuth compiled 15 targets across the final two games of the regular season, but he recorded just 75 yards during that time and failed to reach the end zone. He was on the field for 66 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps in Week 18 and led the team in receiving yards. The rookie established himself as Pittsburgh's top tight end during his first professional season, and he caught 60 of 79 targets for 497 yards and seven touchdowns across 16 appearances. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is slated to become a free agent during the offseason, so Freiermuth should further solidify his spot as the team's No. 1 tight end.
