Huddle Up: This was an encouraging night for Bryant, who still managed to stay involved despite the return of teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster from injury. In fact, Bryant literally logged the same exact amount of receptions, yards and targets as he did a week ago against the Packers, the only difference being he didn't score in this one. He's a tremendously volatile option with Smith-Schuster involved, but he's also someone that can be a huge difference-maker in any league.

Huddle Up: Few teams don't have the option to minimize a player with Bryant's upside, but with Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster on the outside the Steelers are one of them. Minus an injury to one of those two it doesn't seem like Bryant will have much of an on-the-field impact this season.

Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts present a good matchup, and if Bryant is set to play, he's a flex option.
Posted: 10/31/2017 12:05pm ET
Huddle Up: The disgruntled Bryant will supposedly be more involved in the Steelers' game plan going forward, but we'll believe it when we see it. JuJu Smith-Schuster broke out in Bryant's absence last week and appears to have officially supplanted Bryant as Pittsburgh's No. 2 wide receiver. Don't start Bryant until he gets back on track and starts producing consistently.
Posted: 10/25/2017 12:47pm ET
Huddle Up: The Steelers are clearly sending a message to their maligned receiver. He wasn't startable anyway after managing 18 catches for 234 yards and one touchdown in seven games this season. JuJu Smith-Schuster now serves as a flex as the Steelers' obvious No. 2 receiver.
Posted: 10/23/2017 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: It sure appears as if Bryant is trying to force his way out of Pittsburgh, as he has reportedly demanded to be traded multiple times and went so far as to rip rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media. As if it wasn't already becoming apparent, Bryant should be benched in all leagues for the foreseeable future and can probably be dropped in shallow leagues.
Posted: 10/23/2017 10:38am ET
Huddle Up: According to one of his teammates, Bryant 'called in sick.' This appears to be further proof Bryant is trying to force his way out of Pittsburgh after touching the ball twice and logging 36-of-69 snaps in Week 7. A suspension seems likely and a trade in the near future cannot be ruled out, but the one certainly is this may just be the push some owners needed to keep Bryant out of their lineup moving forward.
Posted: 10/22/2017 8:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has been passed by rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster on the depth chart and he has expressed his unhappiness with his role in recent weeks. A change of scenery might do him some good, but for now his fantasy appeal is nil.
Posted: 10/20/2017 7:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has been one of the biggest fantasy busts this season. The potential for a big play is still there, but Bryant is a total Hail Mary play at this point.
Posted: 10/16/2017 10:51am ET
Huddle Up: Reports surfaced over the weekend Bryant had been growing increasingly upset about his diminishing role and reduced snaps, as JuJu Smith-Schuster saw more snaps and ran more routes than he did for three straight weeks leading into Week 6. By all accounts, Bryant has been highly disappointing in fantasy this season and needs to be on fantasy benches until he gives an owner a reason for optimism.
Posted: 10/15/2017 8:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant was limited to just two grabs in the team's win in Kansas City, and he has been fighting with JuJu Smith-Schuster for targets and playing time behind Antonio Brown. A change of scenery might do him some good, as right now his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.
Posted: 10/15/2017 7:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant is battling Juju Schuster-Smith for targets in the Steel City right now and it appears the rookie is winning out. Bryant has devolved into nothing more than a low-end WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Steelers host the Bengals in Week 7.
Posted: 10/8/2017 2:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant was questionable for the game due to an illness, so perhaps that's why he was a bit sluggish. His longest grab went for nine yards. He has two or more catches in each of his five games, but he has just one visit to the end zone. At this point he is only worth using as a WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Posted: 10/8/2017 9:19am ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has gotten off to a slow start this season but is still a valuable option for owners because of his big-play potential. He will be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defense this week but can still be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.
Posted: 10/7/2017 9:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has been held under 50 yards in three of the four games this year, but his big-play ability makes him dangerous. He is a boom-or-bust WR3 against a solid Jacksonville secondary in Week 5.
Posted: 10/7/2017 10:45am ET
Huddle Up: NFL players almost always play through illnesses, so he should be expected to go Sunday. However, this might just be the push owners need to get Bryant out of their lineups this week since Jacksonville has been the stoutest defense in the league when it comes to holding fantasy receivers in check. Bryant is a high-risk WR3 play at best in Week 5.
Posted: 10/1/2017 6:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has totaled 10 receptions through four games, and he really had only one big game (Week 2 against the Vikings) where fantasy owners picked up any decent amount of points. He has plenty of potential, but so far he has been disappointing from a fantasy perspective more often than not.
Posted: 9/29/2017 12:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has been targeted often on deep passes in the first three games of season but has only had one great fantasy performance. He will remain a top target in the team's passing game but should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option this week.
Posted: 9/28/2017 2:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant should still have a good chance to play in Week 3 if he can recover from his illness, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He was targeted eight times in Week 3 but finished with only two catches and 30 yards. He should continue to see a solid amount of targets in the passing game and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.
Posted: 9/27/2017 1:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has four days to get over whatever illness he's dealing with. He should be good to go barring something drastic, but he faces a tough test in the Baltimore Ravens. View Bryant as a low-end WR2 or flex.
Posted: 9/24/2017 5:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Ben Roethlisberger looked for Bryant early and often, but the two only connected on 25 percent of Bryant's targets. He'll look for a much better conversion rate in Week 4 against a Baltimore Ravens pass defense which was minced up in London by the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
Posted: 9/17/2017 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant was the target of several deep passes during the game and picked up a lot of yards after the catch on his touchdown. He will continue to be a deep threat for the Steelers and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver next week.
Posted: 9/10/2017 1:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant played in a regular season game for the first time in over a year and was not a big factor in the game. He should have a bigger impact in the upcoming weeks and could be a No. 3 receiver against the Minnesota Vikings next week.
Posted: 9/1/2017 1:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant will be starting opposite Antonio Brown and should have a big role in the passing game this season. He can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential but does come with some risk because of his off-field issues.
Posted: 8/31/2017 8:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant will be one of the starting receivers for the Steelers if he is cleared to play in Week 1. He is a risky option because of his off-field issues but has been a very productive player when he has been on the field. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.
Posted: 8/23/2017 2:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryant has yet to be officially reinstated, but he'll be ready if/when the time comes. It's one of the trickier situations in the NFL right now, so keep tabs on Bryant's status. If he does play a full season, he has the ability to achieve WR2 numbers.
Posted: 8/20/2017 6:19pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/11/2017 2:45pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/9/2017 4:31pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/6/2017 5:40pm ET
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.
Posted: 7/27/2017 1:12pm ET
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.
Posted: 6/19/2017 10:17pm ET
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.
Posted: 5/31/2017 5:40pm ET
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.
