Huddle Up: Bryant leads the league in receiving yards this preseason with 205 and two TDs on seven catches, but he now won't be eligible for regular-season action until Oct. 12. Missing a quarter of the fantasy season will send a player tumbling down the draft board, but he's definitely worth a pickup if he's still available in the later rounds of your draft.

Huddle Up: Yikes -- this will slow some of the momentum the second-year Bryant has built up as a rising fantasy commodity this summer. In the meantime, the Week 1 Suspension Bowl between the Steelers and Patriots is taking on the look of an added exhibition game with Bryant and teammate Le'Veon Bell and the Patriots' Tom Brady and LeGarrette Blount all expected to be out.

Huddle Up: It's still very early, and the Steelers also will have an extra preseason game to sort things out as they kick off the exhibition season Sunday in the Hall of Fame Game. Most definitely a position to battle to keep an eye on.

Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like it will be anything more than a temporary setback for Bryant, who is looking to build on his impressive 26-549-8 season a year ago and nail down the Steelers' No. 2 WR role.

Huddle Up: Bryant was a big-play master as a rookie, averaging 21.1 yards on his 26 receptions with almost a third of them (eight) resulting in TDs. Those numbers obviously aren't likely to repeat themselves, but his targets (48) and receptions should more than double as he'll be ready to contribute from the the get-go this season.

Huddle Up: Bryant only caught 26 passes as a rookie last season but certainly made them count, averaging 21.1 yards per grab and reeling in eight TD tosses. It's not reasonable to expect that average or TD ratio to repeat themselves, but definitely expect more targets and catches and don't be surprised if he emerges as a the team's No. 2 option in back of Antonio Brown.

Huddle Up: All that, and Bryant didn't play until Week 6. At 6-4, he's the red-zone target the Steelers need and serves as the perfect complement to Brown.

Huddle Up: The rookie, who's coming off his first game without a TD in the last 5 weeks, will be out there Sunday against a shaky Saints defense.

Huddle Up: Big Ben certainly was looking the rookie's way in the end zone, and Bryant came close to reeling a couple in but a down game was certainly a high probability for the receiver given his unsustainable scoring rate of late.

Huddle Up: The 6-4 Bryant isn't going to keep catching a TD on every other reception, but he definitely looks every bit the part of a No. 2 wideout and is a great complement to the speedy stud Brown. Since he became active in Week 7, all Big Ben has done is throw for 1,127 yards and 14 TDs.

Huddle Up: Bryant, a fourth-round pick out of Clemson, was targeted 5 times in the game and finished with 2 catches for 40 yards, including a 35-yard scoring reception. And "cutting into Wheaton's workload" is an understatement as he finished with nary a reception or target for the first time this season. Wheaton had only 5 catches for 50 yards in the previous 2 games, so fantasy GMs should definitely be looking at a move if they haven't already.

Huddle Up: The 6-foot-4 fourth-round pick provides a red-zone target for a team that has had more than its share of struggles inside the 20. Don't be surprised if Big Ben gives him a shot or two to make a play Monday night.
