Huddle Up: Bryant's issues off the field are well documented, but he is a big-play weapon on the field. He is a high-risk, high-reward option, but the gamble is worth it if you can land him as a WR3.
Posted: 8/12/2017 9:35am ET
Huddle Up: The reports on Bryant have been positive all offseason, but he is at risk of being overpriced in fantasy as his ADP has already shot into the fourth round. While he certainly has the talent to live up to it, he will be hard-pressed to do so in an offense that will be centered around Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. Owners also need to consider the likelihood Ben Roethlisberger will miss time again this season. He's a high-risk, high-reward WR2 at his current ADP.

Huddle Up: Bryant is allowed to play in preseason games but has not practiced with the team yet, so he is more likely to play in the second preseason game. He is a risky option for fantasy owners because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver because of his big-play ability.

Huddle Up: Bryant can practice during training camp and play in preseason games for now but appears to be on track to be on the field for Week 1. He can be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver despite his off-field issues.
Posted: 8/9/2017 4:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant probably will not play in the first preseason game but has a chance to play in the second game. Bryant is a risky option for owners because of his previous off-field issues but is a productive player with 14 touchdowns in 21 career regular season games. He should be considered a high-end No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Assuming Bryant stays out of trouble and on the field, he will be a high-upside WR3 as the deep threat in Pittsburgh's passing attack.
Posted: 8/4/2017 10:48am ET
Huddle Up: Bryant must pass an NFL review prior to the start of the regular season in order to play Week 1 and will be evaluated during the season before being granted full reinstatement. Whether or not this throws cold water on his rising ADP in fantasy drafts is another story, but it should. Until he is cleared by the league, owners can't assume he will be. He should be considered a high-risk, high-reward WR3 until he receives his clearance.

Huddle Up: This puts a little wrinkle into the Steelers' passing game, but Bryant is expected to be fully reinstated. If that happens before the season starts then he has WR2 upside. If it doesn't, then rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster suddenly looks more appealing as a sleeper.

Huddle Up: Before he was suspended for the entirety of last season, Bryant was indeed a stud in his first two years in the league, catching 14 touchdown passes across 21 games, while accumulating 76 receptions for 1,314 yards over that span. If he can avoid the off-the-field issues that have plagued his career, there's no doubt Bryant can be a big-time contributor again in 2017 and should be monitored in drafts accordingly.

Huddle Up: Bryant should be one of the Steelers top three receivers in 2017 as long as he does not have any off-field issues. He is a risky option for owners because of his previous suspensions but should be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.
Posted: 5/26/2017 9:27pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like the Steelers are wasting no time reinserting their big-play weapon into the offense. It remains to be seen if Bryant can stay out of trouble and on the field, but he is a high-upside WR3 when he's out there.
Posted: 5/22/2017 3:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant was reinstated earlier this offseason and will be allowed back on the field for practices. Bryant has caught 14 touchdowns in 21 career games and is a deep threat for the Steelers. He will be a risky option for owners because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is on the field.
Posted: 5/1/2017 8:41pm ET
Huddle Up: All indications are that Bryant is determined and focused in making a successful return to the NFL in 2017. Considering the numbers he's posted and the high-octane offense he plays in, the 26-year-old figures to once again make an impact next season. Thus, he should seriously be monitored accordingly in drafts this summer for his mega potential.
Posted: 4/25/2017 1:32pm ET
Huddle Up: If the stars align for Bryant, meaning, if he can kick his bad habits and stay on the field, he is capable of achieving WR3 status, and possibly higher. Tread carefully, though. We've been down this road before.
Posted: 4/25/2017 1:12pm ET
Huddle Up: The prodigal son returns, again. Bryant has had more than his fair share of off-field issues, but there's no denying his talent and skill. Even so, he missed all of last season and only played in 21 games in the two years prior. He'll at least play second fiddle to Antonio Brown but the No. 2 wide receiver position is his for the taking. Plus, he already knows the team and knows the offense. If he can stay healthy and stay out of trouble, Bryant has a real shot at posting WR3 numbers.
Posted: 4/24/2017 10:04pm ET
Huddle Up: While that's unfortunate news for Pittsburgh, considering they might acquire wide receiver help in the draft before potentially learning that they'll get the suspended wide-out back for the season, this isn't as harmful to fantasy owners. There's still plenty of time for Bryant to return to the team leading up to next season, and if he is indeed back, he'll definitely be someone to watch, having a solid WR2 ceiling.
Posted: 4/15/2017 10:09am ET
Huddle Up: There's been speculation Bryant was on the verge of being reinstated for a couple months already, but if the league can help him avoid any future suspensions by having him lay out this plan now, it is worth the wait. Bryant would obviously be a risky fantasy bet going forward, but he has low-end WR2 upside and 10-plus touchdown potential if he can stay on the straight and narrow.
Posted: 3/29/2017 9:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should know to believe the '25 pounds of muscle' comment when they see it with their own eyes. Bryant has tremendous upside, but he is obviously hard to trust considering he is played a total of 21 of a possible 48 regular-season games since becoming a Steeler in 2014. If he keeps out of trouble following is likely reinstatement, he should be a considered a high-risk, high-reward WR4 in fantasy.
Posted: 3/14/2017 6:29am ET
Huddle Up: Bryant scored 15 touchdowns in 21 games with elite speed on his 6-foot-4 frame. It's anyone's guess what a prolonged layoff would mean for him, though. He'll probably have to be taken as a WR3, but the risk and reward are both plentiful.
Posted: 1/24/2017 9:37am ET
Huddle Up: It is an expected reaction from a coach regarding a player who has suited up in only 21 of a potential 48 regular-season games since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Bryant reportedly considered retirement at one point during his year-long suspension, but his application for reinstatement suggests that is no longer an issue. Bryant has been a huge big-play threat during his brief rollercoaster career and a player the Steelers missed while he sat out in 2016.
Posted: 1/17/2017 11:12am ET
Huddle Up: Bryant's size, speed and deep-play ability would give the Steelers yet another offensive weapon. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell will still be the focal points of Pittsburgh's offense if Bryant is reinstated, but Bryant should not be overlooked. He tallied 765 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 despite playing in just 11 games.
Posted: 1/13/2017 7:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant said all the right things, but it remains to be seen if he can stay out of trouble. His big-play ability gives him tons of upside in Pittsburgh's offense, and he will be worth the risk as a WR4 in 2017 drafts.
