2020 Fantasy Outlook
A target-deprived Gentry -- just one in four games last season -- now finds himself behind Vance McDonald and free-agent acquisition Eric Ebron heading in to 2020. In an offense that typically underutilizes tight ends this does not bode well for Gentry's fantasy value if he remains with Pittsburgh. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $2.86 million contract with the Steelers in May of 2019.
Inactive in Week 17

December 31, 2019
Gentry was inactive for Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
The Pittsburgh offense underused the tight end position all season resulting in Gentry playing just 50 offensive snaps over the course of four games. He finished the 2019 season catching his only target for four yards. He will likely have a similar role with the team in 2020 so long as Vance McDonald remains the starting tight end.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gentry, who the Steelers took in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, will compete with Xavier Grimble for the number two spot on the team's depth chart behind Vance McDonald. It's not an assignment that carries much short-term fantasy utility, but Gentry, who is not known for his blocking skills, could still see enough targets in the event of injuries to pick up some value as the season rolls along.
