  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Held in check in 2023

    Austin secured 17 of 30 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown while rushing 11 times for 57 yards and a touchdown over 17 games in 2023.

    Austin had a relatively solid start to the season with double-digit receiving yards in each of the first four games, but he logged single-digit receiving yards in 11 of the final 13 weeks of the year and was held without a catch in five consecutive games to close out the regular season. The 24-year-old missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury, so it was encouraging to see him appear in every game in 2023. However, he'll need to get more involved in the passing game if he hopes to be a fantasy-relevant option.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Scores first rushing touchdown

    Austin failed to secure either of his targets while rushing once for seven yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 34-11 win over the Bengals.

    Austin hasn't been a major part of the Steelers offense for most of the 2023 campaign, but he reached the end zone during Saturday's blowout win on an end-around run in the first half for his first career rushing touchdown. Over 10 appearances since Pittsburgh's Week 6 bye, Austin has secured five of eight targets for 37 yards while rushing eight times for 46 yards and a touchdown.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Will play vs. Cardinals

    Austin (ankle) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    After he missed practice Wednesday, Austin was able to return in a limited capacity Thursday before upgrading to full participation Friday ahead of the Steelers' game in Week 13. The 2022 fourth-rounder probably won't see any target volume Sunday as long as George Pickens, Diontae Johnson and Allen Robinson remain available.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Ramps up activity

    Austin (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Austin logged a DNP on Wednesday, so this is a step in the right direction for the second-year pro. If he can get in a full practice Friday he'll likely avoid an injury designation for a Week 13 matchup with the Cardinals. However, if he remains limited, expect him to head into Sunday with a questionable tag.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Not ready to practice Wednesday

    Austin (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Austin sustained the ankle injury in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bengals and isn't yet healthy enough to return to the field as the Steelers kick off Week 13 prep. He'll still have Thursday and Friday to fit in some practice reps before the Steelers potentially hand him a designation for this Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Injures ankle in win

    Head coach Mike Tomlin noted after Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bengals that Austin sustained an ankle injury late in the game, Alan Saunders of SteelersNow.com reports.

    Tomlin didn't provide any other update on the severity of Austin's injury, so his practice participation leading up to Week 13 against the Cardinals should indicate whether he'll miss time. Austin caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's win.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Two touches in Week 10

    Austin secured his lone target for three yards while rushing once for six yards during the Steelers' 23-19 win over the Packers on Sunday.

    Austin has recorded at least one rushing attempt in four consecutive games, but his fantasy impact has still been limited. Over his four appearances since the Steelers' Week 6 bye, he's secured three of four targets for 22 yards while rushing six times for 27 yards. Unless several of Pittsburgh's receivers deal with injuries at some point, Austin doesn't have much fantasy relevance.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Logs 10 rushing yards

    Austin failed to secure his lone target while rushing twice for 10 yards during the Steelers' 20-16 win over the Titans on Thursday.

    Austin's snap count remained consistent in Week 9, and he rushed multiple times for a second consecutive week. The 2022 fourth-rounder showed some glimpses of promise earlier this year but has been limited since the team's Week 6 bye, securing two of three targets for 19 yards while rushing five times for 21 yards over the last three matchups.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Limited production Sunday

    Austin secured both of his targets for 19 yards while rushing twice for 10 yards during the Steelers' 20-10 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday.

    Austin saw slightly more playing time Sunday with 16 offensive snaps after being on the field for just seven last week. He tied his second-highest total of the season with four touches, but he was unable to generate much yardage in the defeat. The 2022 fourth-rounder has secured 14 of 24 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown while rushing five times for 14 yards over the first seven games of the season.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Plays seven offensive snaps

    Austin rushed once for one yard during the Steelers' 24-17 win over the Rams on Sunday.

    Austin scored his first career touchdown via a long reception against the Raiders in Week 3, but his workload has dropped off over the last few games. He's been targeted just once over the last two matchups and played a season-low seven snaps Sunday with Diontae Johnson back in action. As long as the Steelers' other receivers remain healthy, Austin is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy option.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: No receptions in win

    Austin failed to secure his lone target during the Steelers' 17-10 win over the Ravens on Sunday.

    Austin was held without a catch for the first time this season during the Steelers' Week 5 win, but he saw a slight decrease in playing time since he was evaluated for a concussion during the game before being cleared to return. The 2022 fourth-rounder had an encouraging Week 3 performance by securing two of six targets for 72 yards and a touchdown, but he's had limited fantasy value in his other appearances this year.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Tallies three catches in loss

    Austin secured three of five targets for 24 yards while rushing once for five yards during the Steelers' 30-6 loss to the Texans on Sunday.

    Austin racked up 72 yards last week, fueled by a long touchdown reception, but he was unable to generate as much production in Week 4 as the Steelers' offense sputtered once again early in the year. While Diontae Johnson (hamstring) remains on injured reserve, Austin's outlook over the next few weeks could be impacted since Mitch Trubisky will likely be taking snaps under center with Kenny Pickett (knee) expected to miss time. Austin has seen at least four targets in every game so far this year, but his overall production has been inconsistent.
