2024 RTSports Outlook

Washington played every game his rookie season and had seven receptions for 61 yards. He did not find the field much in a backup role. He is expected to play a similar role this season for the Steelers. Washington is a physical specimen that can be a very tough cover for the tight end position. Washington can make the spectacular catch and is a top athlete at the position. He remains a bit raw, though, and can lack consistency because of that.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Washington could have a few big games but will be inconsistent in a backup role, getting limited work. As long as Pat Freiermuth is healthy, Washington will get sporadic work.

Player Notes
Jun 18 12:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Darnell Washington struggled last year during spring workouts, and nothing has changed a full year later. Washington has proven himself as a solid blocking tight end, but he's not going to be a 30-catch guy based on what we've seen from him in his second offseason. Even in offensive coordinator Arthur Smith's tight-end-friendly scheme, fantasy managers in deeper leagues shouldn't expect Washington to have much more offensive output than he had last year, when he went for seven catches on 10 targets for 61 yards and no touchdowns in 17 regular-season games (seven starts). The 22-year-old former third-round pick last year out of Georgia doesn't figure to be on the fantasy radar in redraft leagues in 2024 unless Pat Freiermuth misses time with an injury.

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year tight end Darnell Washington got put into a box as a blocking tight end as a rookie in 2023 and rarely had opportunities to showcase his potential as a pass-catching mismatch, catching just seven of 10 targets for 61 yards. But 6-foot-7, 265-pound monster of a tight end said there's a "strong possibility" he'll become more of a receiving threat in new offensive coordinator's tight end-friendly system. The 22-year-old is an intriguing mismatch if sent out on routes, but as long as Pat Freiermuth remains healthy as the team's top pass-catching TE, it's going to be hard for Washington to stand out in fantasy.
