Struggles in OT win
Claypool (hamstring) had two receptions (seven targets) for 17 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Seahawks.
Claypool was dealing with a hamstring injury coming into this contest, but he was cleared for action and seemed to be moving fine on the two occasions Ben Roethlisberger was actually able to connect with his wideout. The 23-year-old had been trending positively prior to this dud, posting 14 receptions, 226 yards and a touchdown over his previous two contests. We will write this off as rare poor outing, as Claypool is a strong fantasy asset moving forward with JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) out for the rest of the year. The Steelers are heading into their bye week with a matchup against Cleveland on tap for Week 8.
