    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (groin) said he has spent the last month making sure his 'body is back to normal' following offseason groin surgery.

    Huddle Up: Coates has big-play speed but inconsistent hands, and now that Martavis Bryant is back in the mix, Coates probably won't have a defined role in the offense.

  • Posted: 3/30/2017 3:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates is expected 'to take another leap' next season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

    Huddle Up: Coates showed glimpses of being a productive wide-out, such as his 139-yard, two-touchdown effort in Week 5 of this past season. Remarkably, the 24-year-old accumulated at least 50 receiving yards in each of his first five games, yet only posted 14 yards combined the rest of the way, though a lot of that had to do with injuries. His ceiling remains high and he could be a great sleeper pick next year, but health may be the biggest factor.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hamstring) was added to the injury report and was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Coates basically disappeared from the offense after injuring his fingers, and this hamstring issue isn't going to help matters. Continue to avoid him in all formats.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 5:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Coates has struggled to produce while dealing with the injury, and he is a desperation play in Week 11 despite the enticing matchup against Cleveland.

  • Posted: 11/15/2016 9:55am ET

    Updating a previous story, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (fingers) has a broken left ring finger in addition to a broken left index finger.

    Huddle Up: Coates played only two snaps in Week 10 and has been a complete non-factor since exploding for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5. While the receiver has vowed to continue playing, it's more than fair to wonder why the Steelers would even entertain such an idea. Coates can be dropped in most leagues, while Eli Rogers should make for a serviceable WR3 for as long as Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey are hurt.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 4:26pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 11, and is expected to play in the Week 10 game against Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: With Darrius Heyward-Bey and Markus Wheaton out, Coates and Eli Rogers could be in line for additional targets. Coates is an intriguing flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams against the league's 15th-ranked pass defense.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 6:22pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Coates has battled drops this year, but his ability to hit the big play makes him worth a look as a boom-or-bust WR3.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 8:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) was active for the Week 6 game against the Miami Dolphins, but he was held off the scoresheet despite being targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Coates had 139 yards and two scores last week, and looked to be emerging as a fantasy standout. So much for that. He has a fractured finger, so that has certainly stalled his ascension to fantasy stardom. Don't drop him, but temper expectations for the next couple of games until he gets back to full health.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 9:40am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hand) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Coates probably will be limited by the hand injury but should still be attractive to owners because of his big-play potential. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/15/2016 10:06am ET

    Updating a previous story, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hand) is dealing with a broken index finger in addition to seven stitches in his left hand. He is listed as questionable for Week 6 versus the Miami Dolphins but was able to catch passes while getting in a limited practice on Friday, Oct. 14.

    Huddle Up: Local reporters seem to believe Coates will play, but it may be difficult for him to live up to the bar he has set in recent weeks considering the nature of his injury. Don't be surprised if Pittsburgh ends up giving him the week off, but if he does go, he is certainly worth a start as a WR3 given his big-play nature and forgiving matchup against an overmatched secondary.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 11:15am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hand) was able to catch passes with his lacerated hand Friday, Oct. 14, but he is listed as questionable for Week 6 versus the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Coates is awaiting clearance from doctors, which means owners need to keep checking back for updates for a receiver with another salivating matchup after burning the New York Jets last week. If Coates must sit, Eli Rogers and Darrius Heyward-Bey will be asked to step up.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 1:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Coates has not practiced yet this week, so there is cause for concern here. It will be telling if he's able to practice or not tomorrow. If Coates can't play, then Eli Rogers and Markus Wheaton would assume the No. 2 and No. 3 receiver positions, with Rogers likely in the slot. That's assuming Wheaton plays, too. Rogers would not be a bad sleeper start if Coates is out, but Big Ben, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell would be the only automatic starts in that case.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 1:58pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Coates suffered the injury during last week's game, but he has said he expects to play in Week 6. Owners should monitor the situation during the week because he can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he plays.

  • Posted: 10/10/2016 4:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hand) suffered a lacerated hand during the team's Week 5 game but expects to participate in practice this week. He was able to continue playing in Week 5 after receiving stitches.

    Huddle Up: Coates has caught a pass of at least 40 yards in all five games this season and will continue to be a deep threat for the Steelers. He should have a favorable matchup in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and can be at least a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 2:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates caught six passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Coates has been a successful deep threat for the Steelers this season with six receptions of at least 40 yards. He should be considered are least a flex option in most leagues and could be a No. 3 receiver in some leagues.

  • Posted: 9/12/2016 7:58pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates posted two receptions for 56 yards in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins, including a 42-yard grab in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Coates didn't get a ton of looks in the offense, but he showed his big-play ability downfield. It might take an injury to Antonio Brown before fantasy owners can afford to start Coates.

  • Posted: 9/10/2016 6:59pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates said he isn't letting bad plays impact his focus, and offensive coordinator Todd Haley said he has no doubt Coates will develop into a dangerous deep threat.

    Huddle Up: Coates is likely to be a boom-or-bust option, but with all the injuries to Pittsburgh's receiving corps, he should have the opportunity to make some plays. He is worth stashing in standard leagues, and he could be a sneaky sleeper in DFS formats in Week 1.

  • Posted: 8/13/2016 12:03am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates had three catches for 18 yards but dropped a pass and fumbled twice in a 30-17 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 12.

    Huddle Up: It was a disastrous night for Coates. He's reportedly been having a strong camp but Coates' first preseason game was one to forget. The Steelers are hoping Coates will step up this season with Martavis Bryant suspended for the year. Coates will try to bounce back in the Steelers second preseason game.

  • Posted: 8/4/2016 8:54am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates has been a regular with the first-team offense alongside WR Antonio Brown through four training-camp practices. He's being careful not to assume he's a seamless replacement for WR Martavis Bryant.

    Huddle Up: Coates flashed notable potential at times last year in his rookie season, including in the playoffs, and will be an intriguing breakout candidate for 2016. With Bryant out of the mix, someone will have to step up and it appears Coates will be getting the opportunity to do just that. He could offer excellent value in the late-rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 7/31/2016 1:07pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates made several spectacular catches in practice Saturday, July 30, including a 40-yard touchdown and a one-handed grab.

    Huddle Up: The 2015 third-round pick was barely heard from as a rookie with one regular-season catch for 11 yards, but that's makes his sleeper status even more intriguing this year given Martavis Bryant's yearlong suspension.
