• Jesse James - TE
    Posted 12/11/17 5:56am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had 10 catches for 95 yards Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: James has had some booms and some busts this season, and this was one of the boomer games. A tough matchup against the New England Patriots could bring him back to reality as fringe TE1.

  • Vance McDonald - TE
    Posted 12/10/17 8:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the second half of the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens and he was unable to return. He posted four grabs for 52 yards before departing.

    Huddle Up: McDonald has been really coming on to grab a bigger part in the offense so an injury would be devastating as far as he is concerned. Jesse James would be the biggest beneficiary from a fantasy perspective.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 9:03pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown finished with 11 receptions and 213 yards on 18 targets in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Brown has had a season's worth of production over the past four games, posting 39 catches, 627 yards and six touchdowns on 58 targets. A wide receiver might be a long shot for NFL MVP, but he certainly has been the fantasy MVP lately.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 12/10/17 9:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 44 of his career-high 66 attempts for 506 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 win against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger shredded a Baltimore pass defense which hasn't allowed a 300-yard passer all season. He hooked up with Antonio Brown 11 times for 213 yards, as those two continue to click. He'll look to keep it rolling against the New England Patriots in Week 15.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 12/10/17 8:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) rushed 13 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added nine grabs for 77 yards and a score on 10 targets. He left the game briefly to have his right knee checked out, but he was fine and able to finish strong.

    Huddle Up: Bell was a beast for his fantasy owners, and it came at the perfect time in a playoff game for some. He'll look to keep it rolling into Week 15 in a key showdown against the New England Patriots.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/8/17 1:26pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Brown is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues as long as he is active.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/7/17 1:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Brown was able to play last week despite the injury, so he probably will be in uniform again this week against the Baltimore Ravens. He is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues when he plays.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 12/6/17 7:59pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger became the eighth player in NFL history to reach 50,000 passing yards, doing so in the team's Week 13 victory Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Fittingly, he did it in style, leading his club from a 17-point deficit opposite a fierce division rival to pick up the win. Since a slow start to the campaign that saw him produce more interceptions than touchdowns in the first six weeks, Roethlisberger has settled in nicely, and in four of his last five games, he's logged at least 290 yards through the air. Keep riding him as your QB1 in the fantasy playoffs if he's on your roster.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/6/17 9:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown set an NFL record for most receptions (596) and receiving yards (7,611) over a five-year span, doing so in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Each record was previously held by retired WR Marvin Harrison.

    Huddle Up: What else is there to say that hasn't already been said about Brown? He continues to justify his position as the top player drafted in many fantasy leagues, and there appears to be no slowing him down. This season, Brown is enjoying yet another incredible campaign, having registered 88 receptions for 1,296 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games. It's safe to say that he'll be padding both those records sizably in the last four contests.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 12/5/17 10:45am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been suspended for Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens for his illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: This was that the expected outcome for Smith-Schuster, who returned from a one-week absence due to a hamstring injury and will miss his second contest in three weeks as a result of his illegal hit. Martavis Bryant figures to see an increase in his role and playing time against Baltimore.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 12/5/17 11:59am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has been on the field for more than 91% of the Steelers' offensive plays this year. That's 11% more than the next highest running back.

    Huddle Up: Bell is the jack of all trades, the Swiss army knife -- for the Steelers. He has been throughout his career. As long as he can handle that many snaps and that much contact, Pittsburgh won't stop using him that much. It could have more of an impact as Bell's career progresses, but for now he is a fantasy cornerstone.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 12/5/17 5:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster's appeal of his one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Considering the suspension came earlier in the day and the illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict resulted in an injury, Smith-Schuster had little chance of winning his appeal. Martavis Bryant will get one more shot at being a fantasy WR3 against a Baltimore Ravens' secondary that will be missing stud cornerback Jimmy Smith in Week 14.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 5:37am ET

    Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) will test his injured toe Monday, Dec. 4, to determine whether he can play on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is also banged up, which means Martavis Bryant could be a good play even if everyone plays. Brown is always a WR1 option if he goes.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 4:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Brown will be in uniform against the Cincinnati Bengals, but it is not known if he will be limited by the injury. He is a bit of a risky option for owners but should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 10:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown finished with eight catches on 15 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 13 victory Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: In the last game of the fantasy regular season for most leagues, Brown once again delivered one of his typical dynamite performances, continuing an extra stellar run he's been on as of late in the process. In his last three games, the perennial early first-round fantasy pick has totaled 414 yards and six touchdowns. Simply put, Brown is just unstoppable.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 12/4/17 10:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell found the end zone for the first time in four games, as he hauled in a receiving touchdown in the team's Week 13 victory Monday, Dec. 4, opposite the Cincinnati Bengals. Overall, he rushed for 76 yards on 18 carries and added 106 yards on five receptions.

    Huddle Up: The score was notably Bell's first touchdown through the air of the campaign. While the fifth-year pro's touchdown drought was a little concerning, he's at least been racking up boatloads of yards the whole time, as this was his fourth straight game having topped 100 yards from scrimmage. Hopefully he can continue to cash in on his RB1 value when it matters most.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 12/4/17 10:13pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 24-of-40 passes for 290 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also added one rush for four yards.

    Huddle Up: It was Big Ben's third straight game with at least 290 passing yards, and over that stretch, he's tossed 10 touchdown passes compared to three interceptions. This is the version of Roethlisberger owners were waiting for following his quiet start to the season, and his excellence is coming at the most important time of the fantasy year. With the way he's going right now, he's as dangerous a QB1 as any in pro football.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 10:34pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant finished with four catches on six targets for 40 yards in the team's Week 13 triumph Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    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.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 10:27pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had a quiet evening in his return from a one-game absence in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing with four catches on five targets for just 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: Interestingly, it was Smith-Schuster's lowest receiving total since his second career game back in Week 2, and it's also worth noting that he was outperformed by teammate Martavis Bryant, who recorded more than twice as many yards through the air. Still, Smith-Schuster has been a gift for those who scooped him up, and given Pittsburgh's penchant for scoring, owners can continue relying on him as a WR3.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/2/17 10:00am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not practice for a second straight day Saturday, Dec. 2, but teammates still expect him to play on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Toe injuries always seem to go underappreciated by fantasy owners, and the fact Brown has now missed two late-week practices due to one should be cause for concern. The fact Pittsburgh plays Monday night means owners will need to make a call on taking a zero or possibly living with Brown serving as a decoy in what is one of the most important weeks of the season for fantasy owners. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant would likely draw starts in his absence, but neither would be more than a WR3.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/2/17 11:11am ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Saturday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Brown may be a game-time decision against the Cincinnati Bengals and is a risky fantasy option since the Steelers play on Monday Night Football. Owners may consider waiting to see if he plays but should have other options from that game available in case he is ruled out.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 12/2/17 11:21am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster should have a solid role in the offense and could be a big part of the passing game if Antonio Brown is ruled out. He has recorded three touchdowns in the last four games and can be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 12/1/17 12:16pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 1, according to sources. The injury is considered minor, and Brown should be able to play in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but Brown probably will be on the field against the Cincinnati Bengals. He is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 12/1/17 1:06pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: It appears Smith-Schuster is on track to play in Week 13 and should serve as the team's No. 2 receiver. He has played well over the last several weeks and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 11/30/17 1:45pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: The return of Smith-Schuster to the gridiron essentially means the return of Martavis Bryant to fantasy irrelevance, but we shall see. In JuJu's last three games he has averaged 5.3 catches for 112.3 yards and has scored twice. However, he faces off against one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in the Cincinnati Bengals and should be considered a WR3.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 11/27/17 3:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster's (hamstring) status for Week 13 likely will not be decided until late in the week, according to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers are being cautious with Smith-Schuster, so there is a chance that he misses another game. Owners in all leagues probably should look for other options to use. Martavis Bryant likely will see a solid amount of targets against the Cincinnati Bengals and can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 11/26/17 8:57pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown posted 10 receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Brown has had giant fantasy performances the past two weeks, posting five touchdowns after managing just three visits to the end zone over his first nine outings. He'll look to keep it going in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 11/26/17 8:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 20 times for 95 yards in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers and he added a career-high 12 receptions for 88 yards on 14 targets.

    Huddle Up: Bell started out quite slow earlier this season and his fantasy owners were wary, but this is the guy you spent that early-round pick on. He is amazingly productive from a fantasy perspective when locked in.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 11/26/17 8:49pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 33 of 45 passes for 351 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben has posted huge numbers over the past two games, and he and Antonio Brown are back on the same page with five touchdowns during the span. Roethlisberger didn't look very good at the beginning of the season, but he's looking like a QB1 in most fantasy formats right now.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 11/25/17 9:30pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 in primetime, and Brown has 22 touchdowns in 29 career primetime games compared to 21 touchdowns in 59 early games.

    Huddle Up: Brown is always must-start WR1 in any traditional format, but you may also want to build DFS lineups around him in Week 12 given his history of success under the bright lights.
