Steelers WR Ryan Switzer is a Fantasy PPR Penny Stock You Need to Keep an Eye on

Ryan Switzer was originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Cowboys, before he was packaged in a deal to Jon Gruden’s Raiders this offseason. Just four weeks later, he was once again dealt to the Steelers, where he has flourished over his most recent two games. After catching his first touchdown reception against the Bucs on Monday Night Football, he followed it up by catching all seven of his targets against the Ravens on Sunday night. Out of his 21 offensive snaps against Baltimore, he had eight touches. Also, Mike Tomlin subbed out James Conner 13 times last week, and all of those snaps were given to Switzer, rather than backup RBs Stevan Ridley or Jaylen Samuels. Although he may not be used much when Le’Veon Bell comes back, he’s a solid Hail Mary and a cheap DFS option over the next few weeks.

Oh, wow. A white guy from the Boston area is telling you to take a flier on a 5-foot-8 white wide receiver. How original? Well, Switzer is a straight up baller. He’s North Carolina’s all-time reception and receiving yardage leader. Not to mention he was a 2x All-American and 3x All-ACC player.

In Pittsburgh, Switzer has has been targeted or touched the ball on 35.4-percent of his snaps, which is an even higher percentage than Conner (34.1-percent). The former Tar Heel is only 1-percent owned (and $3k on DraftKings), and he could make noise against the Falcons’ decimated defense this week.
