|Despite a big uptick in receptions, Freiermuth took a hit in the touchdown department last season, regressing to just two, after scoring seven his rookie season. Plagued by an offense that couldn't get much done in the red zone (their 51.92 touchdown % was 22nd in the NFL), Freiermuth couldn't butter his bread with enough touchdowns. With the talent out wide, and Harris gobbling up catches at or near the line, Freiermuth's value is going to come from the number of times he gets into the endzone. In a fantasy position that's in a near constant state of flux, Freiermuth offers some solid, if unexciting late round value
| Steelers plan to activate Pat Freiermuth from IR|
TE expected to play Week 11

|The #Steelers plan to activate TE Pat Freiermuth from injured reserve before leaving for Cleveland today, per source. A boost for Pittsburgh’s offense on Sunday against the #Browns’ stout D. (Tom Pelissero on X)|
FFToday's Take: Freiermuth hasn't played since injuring his hamstring in Week 4 and then re-aggravating the injury prior to Week 7. He hasn't seen more than 4 targets in any game this season and the Browns have given up the fewest fantasy points to the position this season.
| Diontae Johnson activated, Freiermuth placed on IR|
Steelers gain one weapon, lose another

|Steelers activated WR Diontae Johnson from injured reserve to the active roster and placed TE Pat Freiermuth on injured reserve. (Adam Schefter on X)|
FFToday's Take: Johnson hasn't played since injuring his hamstring in Week 1. It's likely he would've played last week but the Steelers were on a bye. He'll return to the starting lineup opposite George Pickens and face a Rams defense that's given up just touchdowns to opposing WRs.
| Pat Freiermuth won't play in Week 7, hamstring injury|
Aggravated injury in practice Thursday

|#Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the #Rams and likely will be sidelined longer after aggravating his hamstring in practice Thursday, per sources.

FFToday's Take: Freiermuth last played in Week 4 and it sounds like he's not close to returning. Darnell Washington and Conner Heyward will handle tight end duties in the meantime but neither are viable fantasy starters. Expect WR Diontae Johnson to be activated off IR and play against the Rams.
