Steelers QB Kenny Pickett
Pickett for 2022 is going to be hard to figure out. Certainly, in the re-draft leagues, unless he wins the starting job outright, he will be on the bench for most of 2021. That said, there is still the possibility that if Trubisky starts the season 0-3 or he gets injured, perhaps Pickett will inherit the starting role.
Even if he does, do not expect him to rattle off 15 straight career wins before losing. Kenny Pickett is not the second coming of Ben Roethlisberger. Pickett will have his own struggles he will face as a starting quarterback. He is essentially trying to become the first quarterback in history to buck the trend of becoming a bench warmer because his hands are less than 9 inches.
Given specific questions about how Pickett could perform even when he does get the starting role, he won’t be your first choice in a re-draft league. That said, if you want to stash him in a dynasty league, that might be the perfect place for him.
Assuming you have the room, it’s likely that if Pickett gets the starting job, it will be 2023 or 2024 when Trubisky’s contract ends. By then, most fantasy managers will know whether Pickett may pan out as an NFL quarterback. So it’s much more likely that this is the route you select in choosing to take Pickett.
