During his four-year stint with the Steelers previous to signing with Indy this past December, the 27-year-old Grimble caught 23 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns over the course 47 games.

The departure of Jesse James via free agency appeared to raise Grimble's fantasy profile, but now he'll have some competition for work behind starter Vance McDonald, in the form of Zach Gentry, who the Steelers took in the fifth round of the 2019 draft. Though firmly behind McDonald on the team's depth chart, the Pittsburgh offense is still potent enough to create opportunities, albeit limited, for Grimble.
The signing of Vance McDonald just before the start of last season seriously curtailed Grimble's production and reduced his role to that of a blocking tight end. He inked a new one-year deal, but remains behind McDonald and Jesse James in the pass-catching realm, limiting his fantasy value again this season.
Grimble caught 11 passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns in limited action during his rookie season. With Ladarius Green no longer on the team, Grimble could play a larger role in the offense, possibly challenging Jesse James for the starting tight end job.
Even with Ladarius Green starting the season on the PUP-R list, Grimble is behind Jesse James and David Johsnon on the depth chart, Should he survive roster cuts, he doesn't offer much in terms of fantasy value.
Currently last on the depth chart, Grimble will have an uphill battle during training camp to avoid being cut.
Grimble joined the 49ers' practice squad in September 2014.
