Roman Wilson
The Fall of the Roman Wilson Empire is Taking Effect on UnderDog
2 days ago

With no clear No. 2 wide receiver emerging in Pittsburgh, fantasy gamers are finding other Steelers offensive players appealing in drafts.

Roman Wilson has fallen 5.3 spots in ADP on UnderDog since June 27th and is being selected in round 14. This drop can be attributed to the fact that there is near zero bullish news coming out of Pittsburgh regarding Roman Wilson. 


Roman Wilson had plenty of hype during the Senior Bowl and garnered some excitement as a good fit for the Steelers after they selected him in round 3 of the NFL Draft. Another reason for the ADP dip lies in the fact that new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith hasn’t been the most fantasy friendly play-caller. While fantasy gamers are paying the toll for George Pickens in round 4, many sharp gamers have acknowledged that selecting Pickens comes with risk. 


Given that the second wide receiver role in Pittsburgh is neither locked up nor spoken of with much clarity from Steelers coaches, consider increasing exposure to tight end Pat Freiermuth who goes at the 11-12 turn. From the silence regarding Roman Wilson it can also be decoded that the Steelers will rely on their 1-2 punch in the backfield of Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren who go in rounds 7 and 8 respectively. Overall, what the coaches aren’t saying is very telling to how drafters need to approach the Steelers skill position players in drafts.
