Chase Claypool ends on a high note
Chase Claypool - WR, PIT

Pittsburgh rookie receiver Chase Claypool posted five catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers stunning playoff opening loss against the Browns.

Dynasty Analysis

Claypool had an up and down season where he supposedly had his reps limited so he wouldn't hit the rookie wall. During the regular season, Claypool posted an impressive 62/873/9 line, though he only scored once in the final six regular season games. The playoff line was a positive one for him and represented his third multi-score game of the year. Claypool's future dynasty value is attached to that of JuJu Smith-Schuster of James Washington, both of whom will be free agents this off-season. If Smith-Schuster was to re-sign in Pittsburgh, Claypool would be relegated back to being the third receiver behind Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson. If Washington comes back as well, that would eat even more into his playing time. However, if JuJu and Washington both sign elsewhere, Claypool's value would rise exponentially as a full-time starter. With those issues and the quarterback position in flux, Claypool remains a strong hold in dynasty circles, albeit one with some serious upside.
