Steelers insider Mark Kaboly calls Donte Moncrief a "slam-dunk" #2 WR after an impressive spring with his new team. Moncrief also drew praise from QB Ben Roethlisberger for his work ethic and ability to pick up the offense. The former Colt and Jaguar has been an enigma throughout his career, disappointing fantasy owners more often than not. But he's not even 26 yet and has always possessed an intriguing combination of size and athleticism. Antonio Brown's departure, of course, leaves tons of opportunity in Pittsburgh's WR corps. We're still not counting out James Washington in the battle for the #2 WR spot and will also be keeping an eye on rookie Diontae Johnson. But Moncrief looks like the Steeler WR to target later in fantasy drafts right now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that WR Donte Moncrief and the Steelers have agreed to a 2-year deal. Moncrief ranked 2nd among Jaguars with 89 targets in his lone Jacksonville season, catching 48 balls for 668 yards and 3 TDs. The targets, receptions and yards were each his 2nd-best career marks, while the 3 TDs tied his 2nd-highest. Moncrief figures to compete with 2nd-year WR James Washington for the #2 WR gig behind JuJu Smith-Schuster. We'd bet on Washington's upside first, but the ADP of each player will be interesting to watch and factor heavily into which is the better fantasy football draft value.

The Jaguars on Tuesday reached a deal with WR Donte Moncrief, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The former Colt surpassed 32 receptions just once over his 1st 4 seasons and lost 13 games to injuries over the past 2 years. He has plenty to prove before you should treat him as a significant fantasy asset in Jacksonville.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (ankle) is out for Sunday's game in Buffalo. He's topped 3 catches just twice all year and has been off the fantasy radar for a while. Moncrief's absence figures to mean some extra action for WRs Chester Rogers and Kamar Aiken, but neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief returned to practice on Wednesday after missing the previous few days with a minor shoulder injury. His fantasy stock is unaffected. Moncrief is locked in as Indy's #2 WR and has upside at his 6th-round ADP -- assuming QB Andrew Luck is ready by Week 1.

Injury Predictor

'Crief didn't miss a game in his first two NFL seasons -- despite a couple dings and bruises. Last year was different. He suffered a shoulder sprain in September that sidelined him for 6 weeks. And then a bum hamstring set him back a week in November. Injuries probably played a part in his horrid 2.5 YAC average last year. He'll be healthy coming into 2017.
