2019 Fantasy Outlook
Over his four years in Pittsburgh, Nix has amassed a total four yards and a touchdown on four carries, adding another 65 yards and a score on 10 receptions. His talents may not show up too often in the box score, but as a fullback, his ability to create holes for others to run through is invaluable. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
2014
Nix played in 25 games during his first two seasons in Pittsburgh, which has resulted in just four receptions for 21 yards and no rushing attempts. He’ll get an opportunity to be the starting fullback this season, but still has no fantasy value.
It was an unimpressive rookie campaign for Nix, who finished with no rushes and just two receptions for 16 yards. He is expected to once again backup Will Johnson at fullback, which means he has no fantasy value.
Nix will be hard-pressed to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
