• Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 2/23/18 5:33am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant isn't being shopped by the team, but they are fielding offers on him.

    Huddle Up: Bryant had a 50-603-3 line last season as he was clearly affected by Juju Smith-Schuster's emergence. Bryant will be a WR4 option in fantasy, but a trade could enhance that.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 2/21/18 1:23pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's touchdown to interception ratio on passes of at least 20 yards in home games last season was 8:1. The ratio for such passes in road contests plummeted to 1:3. His passer rating on such passes at home was 117.1 compared to 47.6 on the road.

    Huddle Up: There is credence to home-field advantage and the impact it has on the human psyche, and vice versa in hostile environments on the road. Game scripts obviously play a big role in the frequency and length of passes, too. Roethlisberger is a borderline No. 1 fantasy quarterback, but keep in mind that Big Ben, and players in general, may have a harder time finding success on the road.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 2/21/18 11:31pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (knee) said he's off crutches as of Wednesday, Feb. 21.

    Huddle Up: Rogers has flashed some potential since entering the league in 2016, but the reality is it's hard to see him becoming a meaningful fantasy player with how loaded the Steelers are on offense. In 14 games this past season, the former Louisville standout registered just 18 catches on 36 targets for 149 yards and a score. He doesn't need to be drafted in just about all leagues based on his current situation.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 2/20/18 1:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag again this offseason. That tag is worth $14.5 million. He and the Steelers would still be able to accomplish a long-term deal.

    Huddle Up: Bell looks to be the highest-paid running back in the NFL if/when that long-term contract is reached. The bottom line is that Pittsburgh isn't going to let Bell hit the free-agent market. Suffice it to say Bell is arguably the player to select with the No. 1 overall pick in redraft leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 2/17/18 2:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is scheduled to receive a $6 million roster bonus March 16.

    Huddle Up: Brown is one of the top receivers in the NFL and will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues in 2018.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 2/17/18 1:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to receive a $5 million roster bonus March 16.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is coming off a solid 2017 season and has said he plans to play next season. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterbacks in most fantasy leagues.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 2/15/18 9:32am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers have been in talks about a potential long-term contract and general manager Kevin Colbert is optimistic that a deal will come to fruition. Colbert said Pittsburgh wants to keep Bell for the rest of his career if possible, but using the franchise tag on Bell again has not been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Who knows how long negotiations will take or if Bell will hold out if he is tagged? Both sides want a long-term deal, but that's easier said than done. Assuming he is retained by the Steelers, Bell is arguably the No. 1 fantasy player in all formats.

  • James Conner - RB
    Posted 2/9/18 6:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) said he has progressed to the point where he can sprint on the treadmill. 'So things are looking bright for next year,' Conner said.

    Huddle Up: If Pittsburgh's backfield situation remains the same in 2018, Conner will be worth stashing as a handcuff to Le'Veon Bell.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 2/7/18 12:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's current contract could be extended at some point, according to owner Art Rooney. Roethlisberger, who is 35 years old, has already expressed his desire to play three more years in the NFL. Rooney did add that the sides have not had a long conversation about a potential extension yet, however.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben had his peaks and valleys in 2017, but he reached over 4,000 yards for the first time since 2014 and has now averaged 28.5 touchdowns over the last two seasons. With Antonio Brown, up-and-coming JuJu Smith-Schuster and (possibly) Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger has an elite supporting cast that enables him to achieve QB1 status.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 2/6/18 1:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster teamed up for the best quarterback-receiver combination in the NFL in 2017 with a 134.8 passer rating.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster came on later in the season when Martavis Bryant faded into fantasy oblivion. As Pittsburgh's No. 2 wide receiver, he has WR2 potential after tallying 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns in his first professional football season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 2/3/18 2:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell said at this point he plans to be at training camp on time next season.

    Huddle Up: Bell has been optimistic about contract talks with the Steelers, but the team could still place the franchise tag on him this offseason. Bell is a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues as long as he does not decide to hold out.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 2/2/18 2:24pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell said the guaranteed money is the most important thing for him in negotiations with the Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Bell has said the two sides are closer to an agreement than last season, so owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks. Bell likely will be with the Steelers for at least one more season and likely will be an option for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts next season.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/26/18 6:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey confirmed that QB Ben Roethlisberger recently told his teammates he plans on playing three more years.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has plenty of weapons in the passing game, and he threw for at least 28 touchdowns for the fourth time in the last five years in 2017. He'll be a low-end QB1 heading into next season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/25/18 2:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said the Steelers have set an artificial deadline for the two sides to reach a long-term agreement. The Steelers would like an agreement before Feb. 20, which is the first day that teams can place the franchise tag on a player. Bell said the two sides could continue to negotiate after that date if nothing is agreed to in the next few weeks.

    Huddle Up: It appears that the Steelers and Bell have made progress in contract talks and would have a little less than a month to agree to terms. Bell likely will be with the Steelers for at least one more season and will be a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts in 2018.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/24/18 10:12am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell has already been given a contract extension offer. Bell said both parties are a lot closer than last year's extension efforts.

    Huddle Up: Bell would be the top dog in this offseason's free-agent market, but it looks like the Steelers will be able to retain their star running back. As long as Bell avoids off-field trouble and stays healthy, he's arguably the best fantasy football player in the world.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 1/20/18 1:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (knee) may not be ready for the start of the 2018 regular season because he underwent surgery earlier this week to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament. He is a restricted free agent this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Rogers could be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list next season if he is not ready for Week 1. He should be avoided in most leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/19/18 6:51am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell showed up five minutes before the walkthrough ended Saturday, Jan. 13, before the Steelers were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He and a coach were also late to report to the stadium before the game.

    Huddle Up: Bell is supremely talented, but there is luggage to tote with that designer bag. He could see the franchise tag as a free agent, but he'll be an elite RB1 wherever he plays.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 1/19/18 12:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Rogers may not be ready for the start of the 2018 season, so owners should monitor his status during the offseason. He will be the team's No. 4 receiver when he returns and will not be a great fantasy option.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 1/15/18 11:30am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to return to the Steelers next season and will be ready for offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: Bryant had a solid end to the season with three straight games of at least 60 yards receiving. He should be a top-three receiver if he returns to the Steelers and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/15/18 2:42pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has informed teammates that he would like to play three more years in the NFL. Roethlisberger had already announced that he would be returning for the 2018 season.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger looked good in the Steelers' divisional playoff loss, throwing for 459 yards and five touchdowns. He'll be turning 36 years old this offseason, but Ben still has what it takes to succeed in the NFL. View him as a low-end QB1to high-end QB2 for 2018.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/15/18 11:32pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he 'of course' would want to remain in Pittsburgh next season and that he would 'never want to leave this city,' but 'circumstances and things like that' would be the reason if he doesn't continue his tenure with the Steelers in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Bell has already gone on record of saying that he would consider sitting out next year or possibly even retiring if the club decides to place the franchise tag on him, but it seems more likely than not that the two sides will get a deal done. As long as he's back next year, Bell should continue to be one of the first guys taken off the board in all fantasy drafts.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 8:39am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (calf) is officially active for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Brown is a risky option for fantasy owners because of the calf injury, but he should have a big role on offense against the Jaguars. He can be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 1:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Brown was considered questionable because of his calf injury but was one of the best players in the game. He has recorded at least 100 catches and 1,284 yards in each of the last five seasons and will be a first-round pick in fantasy drafts next season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/14/18 1:32pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 67 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14. He also caught nine passes for 88 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason but said he will consider sitting out if he is tagged, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Bell will be a No. 1 fantasy running back as long as he plays in 2018.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/14/18 1:31pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 37-for-58 for 469 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger played well during the second half of the season and threw at least two touchdowns in each of his last eight games. Owners should monitor him this offseason because he has talked about retirement in the past. He will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he continues playing.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 1:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught three passes for five yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster was pretty quiet against the Jaguars but was one of the best receivers in the NFL this season. He likely will be a starter for the Steelers next season and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 1:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers caught five passes for 42 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Rogers was not a big factor in the passing game this season and may only be the team's No. 4 receiver next season. Owners in most leagues probably can avoid Rogers in drafts in 2018.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 1:46pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught two passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was a solid contributor for the Steelers during the second half of the season but could look for a trade this offseason like he asked for during the season. He would be a top-three receiver if he remains a Steelers and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.

  • Vance McDonald - TE
    Posted 1/14/18 1:42pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald caught 10 passes for 112 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: McDonald was more involved in the passing game over the last month and has a chance to win the starting tight end job next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he is a starter in 2018.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 2:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (leg) suffered an injury to his lower right leg in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Jan. 14. He was helped off the field and unable to put any weight on his leg, and on crutches with the leg wrapped after the game.

    Huddle Up: He'll have plenty of time to heal with the team being eliminated from the postseason. Rogers posted 18 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown during the regular season, but could be more useful in 2018 depending on personnel moves. As long as Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster are around he has little in the way of fantasy appeal.
