What originally looked to be a significant injury that had the fantasy community speculating whether or not Pickett would avoid a trip to IR has fortunately turned out to be just a minor ailment. Pickett has played far from impeccable football and the Steelers offense has been one of the least fantasy conducive units in the league, but week to week stability under center will be key if the Steelers want to build any type of momentum moving forward. Given that it’s early in the season yet and the Steelers have their bye in Week 6, there’s a chance Pittsburgh holds out the sophomore signal caller to make sure he’s all the way right for the stretch run. If that would be the case, Mitch Trubisky would be in line to start in Week 5 against the Ravens. The stock report for George Pickens, Najee Harris, and the rest of Pittsburgh’s weapons remains largely identical regardless of which QB takes the field, but there’s no reason to chase down Trubisky on waivers unless you have a desperate need at the position.
