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
May 30 3:30pm ET

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.
