WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Roosevelt Nix | Free Agent FB

The Colts released Roosevelt Nix.

Perhaps Indy will move in another direction at the position, but they might decide against using a full-time traditional fullback this season. From a fantasy perspective, Nix is off the radar.

The Colts are signing Roosevelt Nix, according to ESPN's Jordan Schultz.

Pittsburgh moved in another direction at fullback with Derek Watt, but Nix lands in a great spot with the Colts. Nix will help lead the way for Marlon Mack and company in 2020.

The Steelers have designated Roosevelt Nix to return from injured reserve.

Nix will be eligible to play in the season finale as Pittsburgh tries to get into the playoffs, and his presence will provide a big boost to the running game. If James Conner (thigh) ends up playing, he should get a slight boost in the RB2 ranks with his fullback leading the way.

The Steelers placed Roosevelt Nix (knee) on injured reserve.

Nix didn't put up numbers that made him fantasy relevant, but him being done for the year is a blow to James Conner, who loses his lead blocker. That said, Nix has been out already for much of this season, and Pittsburgh will continue to find ways to generate offense with the personnel they have available to them.

Roosevelt Nix catches one pass in Week 17 win.

It went for two yards on his only target. Pittsburgh's fullback won't be on the fantasy radar next season.

Roosevelt Nix gets one carry in Week 16.

Nix had a four-yard carry on a fake punt in the fourth quarter. He came up about half a yard short of a first down, so it was pretty hilarious to see him do an elaborate celebration like he passed the line-to-gain. Nix is not a fantasy option.

Roosevelt Nix catches two passes against the Panthers.

Pittsburgh's fullback caught a couple of passes in the flat which he took immediately up the field for positive yardage. Nix is a very good real-life contributor, but he's not a fantasy option.

Roosevelt Nix catches one pass in Week 2.

Nix's lone reception went for 19 yards. Pittsburgh's fullback is not a fantasy option.

The Steelers have signed fullback Roosevelt Nix to a new contract.

It's a four-year that runs through the 2021 season for Nix, who was named as a Pro Bowler after paving the way for Le'Veon Bell this season. In terms of fantasy value, this is good news for Steelers running backs, but Nix won't deliver much fantasy value himself. The next move for Pittsburgh is to lock up the All-Pro Bell to a long-term deal, which is something both sides seem optimistic about.

Roosevelt Nix scores against the Texans.

Nix took a fullback dive up the middle for a one-yard score, making it a Christmas to remember for him. Nix obviously isn't a fantasy option as the Steelers' fullback, but it's cool to see him get in the end zone.

Roosevelt Nix scores first career touchdown in SNF win over the Ravens.

Nix was able to make a contested catch over Tony Jefferson from one yard out, and it was his first and only touch of the game and season. With zero career carries, Nix isn't a fantasy option blocking for Le'Veon Bell.
