2019 RTSports Outlook

Rogers was on Injured Reserve much of last year because of a knee injury, but was activated late in the year and got in some games. He played the last three games and caught 12 passes for 79 yards. He saw his most work the last week game of the season with Antonio Brown out, catching seven passes for 59 yards. Rogers had a big rookie season, catching 48 passes, but has just 30 receptions his next two years. He is fighting to keep a roster spot right now. Rogers is a small receiver with good moves in space. He runs pretty good routes and has big-play ability. He will drop some passes, though, and isn't very consistent at this stage of his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Rogers is trending the wrong way. He is not likely to revert back to rookie season numbers. Look for around 20 catches for 200 yards, making him a stretch for fantasy teams.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers caught one of two targets for 10 yards in Thursday's final preseason tuneup against the Carolina Panthers. He also returned one punt for 10 yards. Rogers has hauled in four passes this preseason for 52 yards and has been fighting to earn a bigger role in the offense. He's had a very tough time staying healthy over his first three years in the league, but the team continues to bring him back. He doesn't hold any fantasy value at all, at least until he earns a sizable role as a slot receiver in the offense.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers was targeted twice and pulled in one of them for 11 yards in Sunday's preseason game against Tennessee. He has just three receptions this preseason, but he is still fighting for snaps at the slot position in Pittsburgh. His prime competition is Ryan Switzer and rookie Diontae Johnson. However, Rogers started the final three games of the 2018 season, finishing with 12 catches for 79 yards. He holds no fantasy value during the preseason, but if he earns a role through the season's early- going, he could wind up being a solid flex play in PPR formats.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers caught two of his three targets for 31 yards in Saturday's preseason win over Kansas City. The 26-year-old is looking to earn a spot in the offense after missing the majority of 2018 with an injury. However, he earned a start in the final three games and caught 12 passes for 79 yards. Rogers is fighting with Ryan Switzer, Diontae Johnson, and Diontae Spencer for work in the slot this year. Even though Rogers has never truly broken out in his three years with the team, they seem to really see something in him and will likely continue to target him heavily this preseason. Either way, he doesn't hold any fantasy value but could develop into a streamable flex option down the road if he can gain enough chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger.
