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.

Coach's Decision
October 6, 2019
Gentry (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
Gentry stepped into a bigger role with 25 offensive snaps last week against the Bengals (though he wasn't targeted), but he'll be a healthy scratch Week 5 with Vance McDonald (shoulder) ready to play. Nick Vannett will work as the Steelers' No. 2 tight end.
