2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Hines Ward, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

2010 Stats
59 rec. / 755 yds.
5 TDs
2011 Projected
61 rec. / 775 yds.
5 TDs

Ward is starting to show his age (35) and last season his numbers proved it. His 59 catches for 755 yards and five touchdowns marked his worst statistical season in more than decade. Ward is no longer the go-to receiver in Pittsburgh, that title now goes to Mike Wallace. Still, Ward will find opportunities to get on the field because he's a crafty veteran. However, those opportunities could be limited because of his age, injuries to his knee and thumb (which he had surgery on in the offseason) and the emergence of Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders. Ward should be viewed as a reserve fantasy football wide receiver.
