Russell Wilson signs with Steelers: Fantasy Fallout, player outlooks, George Pickens likely to pick up steam

We had big news Sunday night with Russell Wilson expected to sign a one-year deal in Pittsburgh

We will probably hear about a competition between Wilson and Kenny Pickett in training camp, but Wilson should eventually prove to be the better quarterback for the Steelers in 2024.

Wilson had a rocky two-year tenure with the Broncos that ended March 5 when he was designated a post, June 1st release.

Denver is paying most of Wilson's $38 million this season, so this move makes sense for Pittsburgh to see what Wilson can do at 35.

In 2023, Wilson started 15 games and passed for 3,070 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also had 341 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He averaged 19.7 Fantasy points per game.

The Steelers are going to be a run-centric offense under new coordinator Arthur Smith, and Smith's quarterbacks haven't been stellar the past three seasons when he was the head coach in Atlanta.
