    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant participated in a closed practice session Thursday, Aug. 10, and has been cleared for full practice Sunday, Aug. 13, after the Steelers received word from the league earlier in the week he was allowed to rejoin the team.

    Huddle Up: The reports on Bryant have been positive all offseason, but he is at risk of being overpriced in fantasy as his ADP has already shot into the fourth round. While he certainly has the talent to live up to it, he will be hard-pressed to do so in an offense that will be centered around Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. Owners also need to consider the likelihood Ben Roethlisberger will miss time again this season. He's a high-risk, high-reward WR2 at his current ADP.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not expected to play in the preseason game against the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 11, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Bryant is allowed to play in preseason games but has not practiced with the team yet, so he is more likely to play in the second preseason game. He is a risky option for fantasy owners because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver because of his big-play ability.

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has been cleared for all preseason activities but will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular season activities.

    Huddle Up: Bryant can practice during training camp and play in preseason games for now but appears to be on track to be on the field for Week 1. He can be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver despite his off-field issues.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 4:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is now permitted to participate in all football activities, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

    Huddle Up: Bryant probably will not play in the first preseason game but has a chance to play in the second game. Bryant is a risky option for owners because of his previous off-field issues but is a productive player with 14 touchdowns in 21 career regular season games. He should be considered a high-end No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/6/2017 5:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be fully reinstated and return to practice this week, a team source said Sunday, Aug. 6.

    Huddle Up: Assuming Bryant stays out of trouble and on the field, he will be a high-upside WR3 as the deep threat in Pittsburgh's passing attack.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 10:48am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has yet to satisfy all of the NFL's requirements for reinstatement after serving his one-year drug suspension and will continue to not be allowed to practice at training camp until that changes. 'Bryant may join the Steelers at the training facility and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities. Once arrangements have been confirmed regarding Bryant?s clinical resources in Pittsburgh, he will be permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games,' according to a statement provided by league spokesman Brian McCarthy, who added there is no timetable for a decision from the league.

    Huddle Up: Bryant must pass an NFL review prior to the start of the regular season in order to play Week 1 and will be evaluated during the season before being granted full reinstatement. Whether or not this throws cold water on his rising ADP in fantasy drafts is another story, but it should. Until he is cleared by the league, owners can't assume he will be. He should be considered a high-risk, high-reward WR3 until he receives his clearance.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is still in the process of being fully reinstated into the NFL. He is in the first stages of that process but is not officially reinstated, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Until then, Bryant is not permitted to practice with the team or play in any games. He is allowed to participate in off-field team activities, however.

    Huddle Up: This puts a little wrinkle into the Steelers' passing game, but Bryant is expected to be fully reinstated. If that happens before the season starts then he has WR2 upside. If it doesn't, then rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster suddenly looks more appealing as a sleeper.

  • Posted: 6/19/2017 10:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said WR Martavis Bryant 'looks like a stud, as usual' when asked how the returning wide-out is fitting back in with the team.

    Huddle Up: Before he was suspended for the entirety of last season, Bryant was indeed a stud in his first two years in the league, catching 14 touchdown passes across 21 games, while accumulating 76 receptions for 1,314 yards over that span. If he can avoid the off-the-field issues that have plagued his career, there's no doubt Bryant can be a big-time contributor again in 2017 and should be monitored in drafts accordingly.

  • Posted: 5/31/2017 5:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he knows that it will take time for him to rebuild chemistry with QB Ben Roethlisberger and become more comfortable with the plays.

    Huddle Up: Bryant should be one of the Steelers top three receivers in 2017 as long as he does not have any off-field issues. He is a risky option for owners because of his previous suspensions but should be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.

  • Posted: 5/26/2017 9:27pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant worked with the first-team offense during OTAs and 'looked great on the field while showing a more mature demeanor,' according to a team source.

    Huddle Up: It looks like the Steelers are wasting no time reinserting their big-play weapon into the offense. It remains to be seen if Bryant can stay out of trouble and on the field, but he is a high-upside WR3 when he's out there.

  • Posted: 5/22/2017 3:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be on the field for organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was reinstated earlier this offseason and will be allowed back on the field for practices. Bryant has caught 14 touchdowns in 21 career games and is a deep threat for the Steelers. He will be a risky option for owners because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is on the field.

  • Posted: 5/1/2017 8:41pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant was not on the field for the team's 'Phase 2' of their offseason workouts Monday, May 1. He still has 'steps to take' before being able to rejoin his teammates for practices, including securing a local counselor. Bryant is 'hopeful for minicamp or sooner.'

    Huddle Up: All indications are that Bryant is determined and focused in making a successful return to the NFL in 2017. Considering the numbers he's posted and the high-octane offense he plays in, the 26-year-old figures to once again make an impact next season. Thus, he should seriously be monitored accordingly in drafts this summer for his mega potential.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 1:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cannot attend practices or play in the preseason until he finds a treating clinician. With the help of a clinician, Bryant must then plan activities for Pittsburgh's bye week and next offseason in an effort to keep him out of trouble.

    Huddle Up: If the stars align for Bryant, meaning, if he can kick his bad habits and stay on the field, he is capable of achieving WR3 status, and possibly higher. Tread carefully, though. We've been down this road before.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 1:12pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant was reinstated from his suspension Tuesday, April 25. Bryant served a season-long suspension last year for multiple violations of the league's substance-abuse policy.

    Huddle Up: The prodigal son returns, again. Bryant has had more than his fair share of off-field issues, but there's no denying his talent and skill. Even so, he missed all of last season and only played in 21 games in the two years prior. He'll at least play second fiddle to Antonio Brown but the No. 2 wide receiver position is his for the taking. Plus, he already knows the team and knows the offense. If he can stay healthy and stay out of trouble, Bryant has a real shot at posting WR3 numbers.

  • Posted: 4/24/2017 10:04pm ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers still have heard nothing from the league regarding WR Martavis Bryant's reinstatement from suspension days before the NFL Draft. According to general manager Kevin Colbert, the team now must 'operate under the assumption that, until he is here, he is not here.'

    Huddle Up: While that's unfortunate news for Pittsburgh, considering they might acquire wide receiver help in the draft before potentially learning that they'll get the suspended wide-out back for the season, this isn't as harmful to fantasy owners. There's still plenty of time for Bryant to return to the team leading up to next season, and if he is indeed back, he'll definitely be someone to watch, having a solid WR2 ceiling.

  • Posted: 4/15/2017 10:09am ET

    Suspended Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant met Thursday, April 13, with the NFL?s Management Council as part of his efforts for reinstatement from a year-long drug suspension. Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: There's been speculation Bryant was on the verge of being reinstated for a couple months already, but if the league can help him avoid any future suspensions by having him lay out this plan now, it is worth the wait. Bryant would obviously be a risky fantasy bet going forward, but he has low-end WR2 upside and 10-plus touchdown potential if he can stay on the straight and narrow.

  • Posted: 3/29/2017 9:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expecting to hear back from the NFL soon in regards to his reinstatement from a year-long suspension for multiple violations of the league?s substance abuse policy. Per the Beaver County Times' Chris Bradford, a league source told the paper on Wednesday, March 29, that Bryant?s reinstatement is ?imminent.? According to Bryant's agents, the receiver has added 25 pounds of muscle and is in 'excellent condition'.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know to believe the '25 pounds of muscle' comment when they see it with their own eyes. Bryant has tremendous upside, but he is obviously hard to trust considering he is played a total of 21 of a possible 48 regular-season games since becoming a Steeler in 2014. If he keeps out of trouble following is likely reinstatement, he should be a considered a high-risk, high-reward WR4 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/14/2017 6:29am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is eligible to return from his one-year suspension, and the league has until the end of March to rule on his reinstatement. Sources close to Bryant said he has gained 15 pounds as he trained and helped coach high school football during his absence.

    Huddle Up: Bryant scored 15 touchdowns in 21 games with elite speed on his 6-foot-4 frame. It's anyone's guess what a prolonged layoff would mean for him, though. He'll probably have to be taken as a WR3, but the risk and reward are both plentiful.

  • Posted: 1/24/2017 9:37am ET

    Suspended Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant applied for reinstatement early this month, but head coach Mike Tomlin said while he is 'hopeful', he is also in 'wait-and-see mode' in regards to his potential return to the team.

    Huddle Up: It is an expected reaction from a coach regarding a player who has suited up in only 21 of a potential 48 regular-season games since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Bryant reportedly considered retirement at one point during his year-long suspension, but his application for reinstatement suggests that is no longer an issue. Bryant has been a huge big-play threat during his brief rollercoaster career and a player the Steelers missed while he sat out in 2016.

  • Posted: 1/17/2017 11:12am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant applied for reinstatement Tuesday, Jan. 17, according to a source. Bryant will not be able to return for the playoffs, but he could return for the 2017 regular season.

    Huddle Up: Bryant's size, speed and deep-play ability would give the Steelers yet another offensive weapon. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell will still be the focal points of Pittsburgh's offense if Bryant is reinstated, but Bryant should not be overlooked. He tallied 765 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 despite playing in just 11 games.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 7:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he has taken his year-long suspension seriously because he understands he is out of chances. Bryant said he has trimmed down his friend circle and has put on 10 pounds of muscle.

    Huddle Up: Bryant said all the right things, but it remains to be seen if he can stay out of trouble. His big-play ability gives him tons of upside in Pittsburgh's offense, and he will be worth the risk as a WR4 in 2017 drafts.
