Chase Claypool caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh's Wild Card loss to Cleveland.
Coach Mike Tomlin tried to hold Claypool back, playing him on only 34% of the team's snaps through the first two games, but Diontae Johnson's injuries ultimately forced Pittsburgh's hand in unleashing the second-round rookie for 7/110/3 immediately following its Week 4 bye, and 100 targets from Week 5 on. He caps his first year in the league with a team-high 14.1 yards per catch on 109 targets despite being deployed as a part-time player and having his snaps scaled back to avoid hitting any "rookie wall" in Pittsburgh's last three games. He also flashed salivating explosiveness in rushing for 10/16/2 and hauling in nine passes 20-plus yards downfield. With JuJu Smith-Schuster set to hit the market as unrestricted free agents, Claypool has a shot to open the 2021 fantasy season as an overall WR2 with league-winning upside. Jan 11 2:14 am (EST)
