Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 13
It was a dose of reality for anyone who started Pat Freiermuith on Sunday. He caught 3 of his 4 targets for 26 yards. Going forward, the statline will not shift much. The key will be finding the end zone, something he had done a ton of late. Freiermuth had scored in 4 of his last 5 games prior to Sunday’s tilt with Baltimore scoring 5 over that span. He is an obvious boom or bust player who needs to find the end zone to be viable for fantasy. However, if Chase Claypool continues to have issues with his toe, Freiermuth could see more work when the Steelers get in close. The rookie remains a low-end TE1.
Week 11
Freiermuth was heavily involved in the passing game for the Steelers but was mostly ineffective with his targets. The offense struggled through 3 quarters before the caught fire late in the game. Freiermuth took a screen pass for a 5-yard TD late in the game to tie the score at 34. He finished 3 rd on the team with 7 targets (15.9% target share). Freiermuth ended
the game with 4 catches for 11 yards and 1 TD. Freiermuth has now scored 4 TDs over the Steelers last 4 games and has become a favorite target of Ben Roethlisberger once the Steelers get into the red zone. Freiermuth is ranked as our TE12 this week against the Bengals. The Bengals have now allowed opposing TEs to reach the end zone in each of their last 3 games. The next three games on the schedule for the Steelers are @CIN, BAL, and @MIN.
Week 10
Freiermuth caught 5 of 9 targets for 31 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 tie with the Lions.
Freiermuth was 3rd on the team in targets behind Diontae Johnson and Ray-Ray McCloud but was unable to find much success with backup Mason Rudolph filling in for Big Ben.
Freiermuth had a terrible rookie mistake in OT when he caught a pass and instead of running directly out of bounds, he decided to turn it up field when the Steelers had no timeouts remaining. To make matters worse, he fumbled and the Steelers didn’t have any chance at a long game-winning FG.
Freiermuth has seen good usage the past few weeks and should remain in play as a low-end TE1 in Week 11 against the Chargers.
Week 9
With the Bears doing a great job of jamming the Pittsburgh outside WRs, Freiermuth tied for the team lead with 6 targets, as he often avoided those jams when lined up as an inline TE. But despite seeing just 6 passes, 2 of them came from inside the 10-yard line, and he was able to turn those into TDs. Otherwise, his longest gain of the day was on a pass down the seam for 13 yards. With the Steelers playing with a lead for most of the game, Ben Roethlisberger threw just 30 passes, and Freiermuth was easily the most productive pass catcher.

Although it took a few weeks and also Eric Ebron getting dinged up, Freiermuth is starting to become a fixture in the short-passing attack for the Steelers. After seeing just 12 targets in his first 5 games of the year, he came into this game with 7 targets in each of his last 2. And he didn’t disappoint with the added work by posting stat lines of 7-58 and 4-44-1. It’s likely he moves onto the radar as a top-12 fantasy option at TE.
Week 8
Freiermuth played the part of Big Ben’s security blanked in Sunday’s win over Cleveland. Seeing several 3rd down targets, the rookie TE added a beautiful contested catch in the end zone. Overall, he saw 7 targets — 2nd most behind Diontae Johnson’s 13. With Eric Ebron iffy for Week 9, Freiermuth will be right back in the TE1 mix. Even if Ebron returns, Freiermuth will retain some spot-start value.
Week 6
A player to monitor after the Steelers bye week is Freiermuth. He looked to be the biggest beneficiary of the Juju Smith-Schuster injury. Freiermuth saw 7 targets, catching all 7 for 58 yards. The issue is he still splits time with Eric Ebron, as he's only saw 22 targets to 19 for Ebron. Both players played behind new slot WR Ray-Ray McCloud who ran only 1 fewer route than Chase Claypool on the week. Unless Ebron is benched -- which isn’t likely -- it will be hard for Freiermuth to be consistent as he only runs a route on just over 50% of Ben Roethlisberger drop-backs. If you have deep benches stash him, but he’s not a must grab for now.
