• Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/20/17 7:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has not been mentioned in trade discussions, according to team president Art Rooney II. 'We're not looking to trade Martavis,' Rooney said. 'He was out of football for a year. Maybe some of us had higher expectations how quickly he could get back up to full speed, but he's making progress.'

    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.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/18/17 9:27am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the first pair of teammates since the 1970 merger with at least 700 scrimmage yards apiece in their team's first six games of the season.

    Huddle Up: Owners already know Bell and Brown are obvious must-starts, but this stat reflects just how heavily the Steelers rely on them to carry the offense. Bell already has a league-high164 touches despite getting eased into action in Week 1, while Brown has nine more targets (74) and 196 more receiving yards than any other receiver.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/16/17 10:51am ET

    Contradicting a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant told reporters Monday, Oct. 16, he did not request a trade and has only talked with coaches about getting better.

    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.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 9:42am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is likely to receive the franchise tag from the team next season, even though both sides will continue to work on a possible contract extension. Bell is reportedly seeking a multi-year deal worth $15 million annually but the Steelers are unlikely to offer him that much money, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Bell has gotten off to a sluggish start this year after missing the entire preseason due to a contract dispute, with just one 100-yard rushing performance to date. That being said, the 25-year-old should still be viewed as a RB1 in all fantasy formats regardless of the opponent.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant managed just two catches for 27 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    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.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:38pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted three receptions for 32 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: The rookie has managed at least three receptions in each of his past three games, but his yardage totals are rather middling. He remains useful as a WR4 or flex option only in deeper leagues heading into Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:34pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown racked up eight receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Brown had a 51-yard game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter which not only sealed the win, but more importantly put fantasy owners over the 100-yard mark. It was just his second visit to the end zone in six games, and both scores have come on the road. He'll look for his first home touchdown in Week 7 against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 7:33pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 32 times for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added three grabs for 12 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: This is the Bell fantasy owners have been waiting for. After a slow start following his missing of training camp and the preseason, it took him a while to get on track. He had his biggest game against the best opponent the team has faced so far, and that's scary news for the rest of the league.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 7:18pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of his 25 pass attempts for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that he cleaned up the interceptions after having a career-high five picks last week. His only touchdown was an acrobatic catch and run by Antonio Brown in the fourth quarter, or this line would be even worse. He'll look for better results back home in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, but right now he is looking more like a QB2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 8:48pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant recently requested a trade, sources reported Sunday, Oct. 15. His teammates and coaches are reportedly well aware he is unhappy with his current role.

    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.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 9:19am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

    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.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 10/8/17 2:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James managed three receptions for just 24 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: James turned the heads of fantasy owners with two touchdowns and season highs of six catches and 41 yards in Week 1 in Cleveland, but he has totaled 12 grabs for just 110 yards in four games since. He remains nothing more than a TE2 or bye-week replacement option heading into Week 6 in Kansas City.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant racked up five catches for 21 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    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.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted four grabs for 58 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster's yardage totals have increased in each of his past four games, and he has found the end zone two times - one more than Antonio Brown. He isn't an elite fantasy option just yet, but his role is increasing and Ben Roethlisberger is trusting him more and more. The rookie is worth grabbing in deeper fantasy leagues, especially if you need help during bye weeks.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in 10 receptions and 157 yards on his 19 targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total was his best since the season opener in Cleveland. He already has three games with 10 or more receptions and 64 targets through five outings. That's great news for fantasy owners, but he has managed just trip to the end zone so far. He'll look for his second touchdown of the season in Week 6, but it might be tough sledding in Kansas City.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 2:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 15 times for 47 yards in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added 10 receptions for 46 yards.

    Huddle Up: The total yards from scrimmage is fine, but he failed to find the end zone for the third time in five games, and he has just one 100-yard rushing game to date. That's not exactly what fantasy owners expected from the first-round pick. He'll look for better results in Week 6, but faces a tough matchup in Kansas City.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 10/8/17 2:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 33 of his 55 pass attempts for 312 yards, no touchdowns and a career-high five interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben's yardage total was fine, but two of his career-high five picks were returned for touchdowns and he finished with a terrible 37.8 passer rating. He faces another tough matchup on the road in Week 6 against the Chiefs, so it might be a good idea to go another way if you normally depend upon him.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/7/17 10:45am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (illness) was added to the injury report Saturday, Oct. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    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.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 10/7/17 7:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown returned punts in Week 4, and he said he is going to continue to return punts going forward.

    Huddle Up: Brown is no stranger to returning punts, and there is chance he could break one for a score and provide fantasy owners with an unexpected boost. Of course, there is also a chance he could be injured while returning a punt.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/7/17 7:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, and the Jaguars' run defense is ranked last in yards per attempt and yards per game and has allowed the third-most rushing touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Bell finally looked like himself last week, piling up 186 total yards and two scores. A repeat performance could be on tap against Jacksonville's porous run defense, and Bell has a good chance to finish as the top fantasy back in Week 5.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/7/17 9:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (illness) is listed as questionable but is expected to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, according to a source.

    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.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 10/6/17 1:10pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger plays well at home but will be facing the top ranked pass defense in the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has thrown for more than 250 yards only once this season but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 10/6/17 1:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: James has been a solid option in the Steelers passing game but has not found the end zone since Week 1. He may post decent numbers against the Jacksonville Jaguars but probably can stay on the bench this week.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 10/5/17 4:33pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Thursday Oct. 5, one day after he practiced on a limited basis.

    Huddle Up: It looks like James will be out there on Sunday for the Steelers, but should he be out there for fantasy owners? The former Penn State product has tailed off after an eye-opening Week 1 when he scored a pair of touchdowns, as he's totaled just nine catches for 86 yards in three games since. It's possible the Pittsburgh offense has a coming-out of sorts in this one, but it's still too risky to deploy James right now in most formats.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 10/5/17 4:49pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Oct. 5, one day after he did not practice.

    Huddle Up: There's no question Roethlisberger will suit up on Sunday against the Jaguars. While Jacksonville has sported a more-than-competent defense thus far, the Steelers are due for a real big day offensively, which could make this the first game they reach 27 points this season. He's still a QB1 in this matchup.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 10/4/17 2:31pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: James has received some targets in the passing game but has not done much since his two-touchdown performance in Week 1. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues and can stay on the bench this week.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 10/4/17 2:24pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has received Wednesdays off the last few weeks but will be ready to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5. He has not thrown for more than 263 yards in any game this season but has played better at home over the last few seasons. He may be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 6:52pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was limited to just 34 yards on four receptions in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Brown doesn't have many disappointing games, especially from a fantasy perspective, but you can chalk this up to a prepared Baltimore defense. Brown will look to bounce back against a more giving Jaguars pass defense in Week 5.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 6:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant hauled in three receptions for a team-high 48 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    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.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 6:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 35 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added four catches for 42 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: This is the type of production Bell's fantasy owners have been patiently waiting for, as he had been performing nowhere close to expectation. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
