Is Randel El being overlooked? He’s earned a starting spot and could be great sleeper. What’s the negative on this guy with Rothlisberger gunning at him? Who’s his competition on the team to see the ball before him?

I dont think he is being overlooked. Yes hes the second wr but lets look what type of offense Pit has. They are a very run heavy team with an inexperienced qb that is struggling to hit wrs right now. He might get it figured out and it might be nothing but when hes overthrowing wrs that much its something to consider. Randle El is not worth a roster spot imo.

Yea. I've got him, and keep moving him in and out of my lineup.
Got the Steeler news that he will be returning kicks, but didn't get if that meant returning kicks (only) OR double duty.

At this point, Randle El is no better than a solid #5 or a weak #4 WR on your roster. I own him in two deep leagues in hopes he will take over something similar to what Plax did. He isn't afraid to go over the middle and could end up with some solid TD numbers.

Kick returns help as well. If you have room, pick him up and hope for a breakout, but he shouldn't be starting at this point.

I hope you're kidding.

Yes, double duty.

In my league that starts 5 WRs, he's got a nice spot on my squad. In addition to taking over Plax's spot (which he did very well last yr. for a few weeks), he returns punts (bonus!), and will get the occasional end around/trick play for which he's highly qualified for. ;-D
