Moncrief caught one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.
Moncrief saw his first game action in a month but played just 14 snaps. Heading into a Week 7 bye, fantasy players have few reasons to roster Moncrief.
Moncrief is active for Sunday night's game against the Chargers after being a healthy scratch in two of the Steelers' previous three games, Kevin Gorman of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
He'll re-enter the mix, with James Washington (shoulder) sidelined, but with Devlin Hodges starting at QB for Pittsburgh in Week 6, Moncrief isn't a high-percentage fantasy play, given that JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson are also in the team's wideout mix.
Moncrief (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Moncrief will be a healthy scratch for the second time in three games after playing only three offensive snaps in the 27-3 win over the Bengals in Week 4. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, James Washington, Johnny Holton and Ryan Switzer will be the Steelers' active receivers Sunday.
Moncrief wasn't targeted during Monday's 27-3 win against the Bengals. Per Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, coach Mike Tomlin said of Moncrief on Tuesday: "He's working extremely hard at practice. He had an opportunity to have a helmet on last game, he only got three plays, but I just like his attitude, his work and we'll keep working to see if an opportunity presents itself."
Moncrief has had a topsy-turvy tenure with the Steelers, entering training camp as a starter, only to suffer a dislocated finger that has submarined his season to date. The injury likely contributed to his issue with drops through two games -- five on 11 targets -- and the team opted to make him a healthy scratch Week 3. Moncrief got back on the field in some capacity Monday, but he still ranked fifth among Pittsburgh wide receivers in offensive snap share (5 percent) behind James Washington (76), JuJu Smith-Schuster (73), Diontae Johnson (63) and Johnny Holton (15).
Moncrief is active for Monday's contest versus the Bengals, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Moncrief has endured a precipitous fall since signing a two-year deal with the Steelers in March. He opened training camp in the starting lineup, but a dislocated finger shortly thereafter set him back and likely contributed to his issue with drops during the first two games of the season. The team even made Moncrief a healthy scratch Week 3. With the tight end position affected by injuries -- Vance McDonald (shoulder) is inactive and Xavier Grimble (calf) is on IR -- Moncrief and the rest of the team's wide receivers are available to the offense.
