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.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Ryan Switzer is likely competing for WR Eli Rogers to be the final receiver kept on the 53-man roster, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers will compete with WR Ryan Switzer in training camp and the preseason for a spot on the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.
