Player Outlook
Until Austin finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • 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: 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: 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: Targeted four times on MNF

    Austin secured one of four targets for 10 yards while rushing once for minus-two yards during the Steelers' 26-22 win over the Browns on Monday. Pittsburgh's offense struggled to generate much production once again Monday, and Austin was held in check even though Diontae Johnson (hamstring) was unavailable. However, Austin saw an increased snap count in the narrow win, playing 76 percent of the team's offensive snaps after playing 56 percent in Week 1. Austin's playing time should remain elevated over the next few weeks since Johnson is on injured reserve, but Monday's performance showed that his increased snaps won't necessarily translate to an uptick in offensive output.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Should see added opportunities

    With Diontae Johnson expected to miss time with a hamstring injury, Austin is on track to see increased opportunities in the Steelers' passing game, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. It remains to be seen how long Johnson will be sidelined, but he's not expected to play Monday night against the Browns, at a minimum. In that context, Austin has a chance to yield fantasy utility in deeper formats, while seeing an increased profile in a WR corps that also includes George Pickens and Allen Robinson. In the Steelers' Week 1 loss to the 49ers, Austin logged 35 snaps (Johnson saw 27 snaps prior to being injured) en route to catching all six of his targets for 37 yards.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Set for key role

    Austin likely will be the Steelers' top return man this season and may also have a role on offense, Dave Bryan of Steelers Depot reports. The 2022 fourth-round pick had a strong, well-rounded preseason, posting a 4-93-1 receiving line and taking five punt returns for 107 yards. Austin can also handle kick returns and will probably get a few carries on end-arounds or jet sweeps, but he's unlikely to play a large number of snaps on offense when Diontae Johnson, George Pickens and Allen Robinson all are healthy -- as is the case heading into Week 1 against the 49ers.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Makes big splash in NFL debut

    Austin caught two of four targets for 73 yards and a touchdown while adding 23 rushing yards on two carries in Friday's preseason win over Tampa Bay. Austin stole the show in the second half of Friday's exhibition win when he burned his assignee on a streak that Mason Rudolph hit him in stride with for a 67-yard touchdown. Austin, a 2022 fourth-round selection, missed his entire rookie year due to injury, but he finally got to make a healthy impression on the league. Austin is currently vying for the third spot behind starting wideouts Diontae Johnson and George Pickens on the depth chart, so Friday's big game should help his chances ahead of the Steelers' next preseason matchup against the Bills on Aug. 19.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Impressing as camp progresses

    Austin has made several big plays while showing continual improvement over the first few weeks of training camp, Matthew Marczi of SteelersDepot.com reports. Austin looked shaky during Pittsburgh's first practice of training camp but has shown continuous improvement in subsequent practices. Despite missing his entire rookie season in 2022 due to a foot injury, he's put his speed on full display during camp his second training camp. Austin is firmly behind Deontae Johnson and George Pickens on the team's depth chart at receiver but should have an opportunity to carve out a role within the offense, especially if new acquisition Allen Robinson struggles to fit in with the Steelers.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Competing for slot role

    Austin is competing to serve as the Steelers' slot receiver during OTAs, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports. Austin missed his entire rookie campaign due to a foot injury, but he appears to be healthy this spring. The Steelers acquired Allen Robinson earlier in the offseason, but Austin still appears to be firmly in the mix for the team's slot role ahead of the 2023 season. The 24-year-old topped 1,000 receiving yards in his final two collegiate seasons at Memphis, totaling 137 receptions for 2,202 yards and 19 touchdowns during that time.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Done for season

    Pittsburgh announced Wednesday that Austin (foot) will remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Austin is ineligible to play in 2022 after his 21-day practice evaluation window came to a close without Pittsburgh activating him from IR and adding him to the 53-man roster. The rookie fourth-round pick returned to practice in early October after missing August and September with a foot injury, but the Steelers apparently decided that Austin won't help them this season. He should have plenty of time to get back to full strength before the offseason program next spring.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Feeling good, to be ready soon

    Austin (foot) said Monday that he's "feeling great" and is just "waiting for coach [Mike] Tomlin's word" to return to practice, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. It sounds like the rookie hopes to play in Pittsburgh's preseason finale Sunday against Detroit after missing the first two exhibitions. Austin isn't likely to get many snaps Week 1 but still could make a bid for the No. 4 receiver spot behind Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and George Pickens.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Using walking boot

    Austin has a walking boot on his injured left foot, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. With Anthony Miller (shoulder) out for the season and a number of other wide receivers banged up, Pittsburgh enters Week 2 of the preseason looking awfully thin at the position. Austin doesn't seem likely to play this Sunday against Jacksonville, though it isn't yet clear how serious his foot injury might be. The rookie fourth-round pick should be in the mix for the fourth or fifth WR spot behind Diontae Johnson (hip), Chase Claypool (shoulder) and fellow rookie George Pickens.
