Antonio Brown - WRPosted 11/17/15 11:28pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has caught 27 passes for 423 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks while catching 73 percent of the passes thrown to him.
Huddle Up: The only thing that can cool off Brown at this point is the Steelers' bye this weekend. Brown's resurgence has mirrored Ben Roethlisberger's return to action, and count on elite WR1 numbers as long as Big Ben can stay healthy.
DeAngelo Williams - RBPosted 11/13/15 3:46pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) practiced fully Friday, Nov. 13, and he's probable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: No worries for now over Williams so start him confidence against a Browns' D surrendering the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 11/13/15 6:15pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones will start against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10, according to QB Michael Vick. Vick also said he'll be Jones' backup Sunday, Nov. 15. QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) practiced in limited fashion Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable for Sunday.
Huddle Up: This isn't the official word, but it's what most everyone has been expecting with the Steelers' bye coming up next week. With Jones, it means a slight downgrade for Antonio Brown, but he remains a no-doubt start regardless.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 11/12/15 3:04pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) is progressing ahead of schedule in his recovery from a foot sprain, but it's still unlikely he plays in Week 10. Roethlisberger was supposed to be in a boot all week, but he has shed the boot and was planning in taking part in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Good to see from Big Ben, who appears to escaped not one but two potential season-ending injuries in the past past six weeks. Still, the Steelers likely aren't about to press their luck and have him try to play this Sunday with a bye awaiting next week.
DeAngelo Williams - RBPosted 11/12/15 7:28pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: That noise you heard was a big sigh of relief from Williams owners as he jumped from missing practice entirely Wednesday to full participation Thursday. Barring a setback Friday, consider him good to go for Sunday's juicy matchup against the Browns.
Antonio Brown - WRPosted 11/11/15 12:30am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown averages 10 catches and 153 yards in the five games with QB Ben Roethlisberger this year compared to just four grabs and 59 yards without him.
Huddle Up: Following his record-shattering 17-catch, 284-yard performance Sunday, Brown is due for a letdown, and right on schedule, Landry Jones is expected to start for the injured Roethlisberger on Sunday in Cleveland. The Steelers' bye week follows so Brown owners might have to endure another lean stretch.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 11/11/15 8:06pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury), QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) and RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger isn't expected to play but the bigger concern is Williams' foot injury. He rested on Wednesday but if he misses practice again on Thursday, Williams' status for this week's game against the Browns could be in serious jeopardy.
DeAngelo Williams - RBPosted 11/10/15 3:31pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) has some swelling in his foot, and head coach Mike Tomlin said they'd know more Wednesday, Nov. 11. Tomlin also said he wasn't worried about Williams' workload.
Huddle Up: Does the league's top handcuff need a handcuff of his own -- ostensibly Jordan Todman? Don't discount that notion given that Williams is 32 after all and how crazy-productive the Steelers' RBs have been this season.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 11/10/15 3:39pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) isn't ruling himself out for Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns despite spraining his foot in Week 9. 'I can walk on it. I'm not running around or anything but the smart thing to do, from what doc has told me and the trainers is just to kinda keep ice on it and get the swelling out and just kind of rest it, let it heal,' Roethlisberger said.
Huddle Up: Despite Big Ben's toughness and determination, there's no way the Steelers are going to let the QB go out and play on the foot with the team's bye conveniently coming in Week 11.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 11/8/15 7:25pm ET
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) has a mid-foot sprain and will be sidelined at least a few weeks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: One report has Big Ben only missing 1-2 weeks, so we'll have to wait to see an official timetable for his return. The bottom line is the Steelers will go forward with Landry Jones as their starter until Roethlisberger is healthy, so Pittsburgh's skill position players take a fantasy hit.
Jacoby Jones - WRPosted 11/5/15 6:39pm ET
Free-agent WR Jacoby Jones (Chargers) was claimed by the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Nov. 5. To make room for Jones, the Steelers released RB Dri Archer.
Huddle Up: The Steelers -- and not their AFC North rivals the Ravens -- have landed Jones, but his main role for the time being figures to be replacing Archer as the team's kick returner.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 11/4/15 12:07am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is expected to be back in time for the regular season opener in 2016 after injuring the medial collateral and posterior collateral ligaments in his knee. The anterior cruciate ligament in Bell's right knee was uninjured, making it an easier recovery. A realistic timetable for a recovery is six to nine months. It's unknown when Bell will undergo surgery on his knee.
Huddle Up: Bell won't turn 24 until next February and with in-prime fantasy backs as tough -- or tougher -- to find than ever, he remains an unquestioned keeper.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 11/2/15 9:22am ET
Updating a previous story, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has a badly torn MCL and other damage and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Just when the Steelers were getting the band back together, Bell goes down and will miss the rest of the season. Tough break for both the Steelers and Bell's fantasy owners, who need to win the race to the waiver wire to pick up DeAngelo Williams.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 11/1/15 11:33pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller had 10 catches on 13 targets for 105 yards in a 16-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Miller's fantasy value shoots up now that Ben Roethlisberger is back under center. Miller is a high-end TE2/spot starter going forward.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 10/31/15 2:44pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller could be more involved in the offense as players and coaches have spoken openly about doing so.
Huddle Up: Now that Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return, Miller will be one of the biggest beneficiaries. Miller was dropped in many leagues but he's always been one of Big Ben's favorite targets. Miller will once again be a high-end TE2 with Roethlisberger under center.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/30/15 4:24pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is probable for the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Rejoice Antonio Brown owners: Barring a last-minute setback, Big Ben will make his first start since Week 3 and take aim at a Cincy defense that is allowing a middle-of-the-pack 16th-most fantasy points to opposing QBs.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/29/15 7:30pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 29. Roethlisberger said he has no doubt that he will start in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He's had 'no issues' with his knee this week.
Huddle Up: A continued bright green light for Big Ben, who's scheduled to return Sunday after missing the last 4 1/2 games.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 10/28/15 2:24pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller has just one catch for five yards in the last two weeks, and the Steelers want to find ways to get him going. The absence of QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) has hurt Miller, but Pittsburgh has also increased Miller's blocking duties lately.
Huddle Up: Miller had certainly faded since hauling in a combined 10 receptions for 99 yards and a TD over the first two weeks, but Big Ben's absence has knocked the whole Steelers' passing game out of sorts. Now with the QB due back, pick up Miller and see what develops if you need TE help.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/28/15 11:37pm ET
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expected to play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals, beat writer Ed Bouchette said Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: If Big Ben can go against the Bengals it will give all the Steelers' skill position players a big fantasy boost. Roethlisberger will be a QB if he plays.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/26/15 8:14pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expected to start in the Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals as long as he does not have any setbacks during practice.
Huddle Up: It will be a welcome sight for Steelers Country -- and, not to forget, Antonio Brown's fantasy owners -- as Pittsburgh has had to make do with the likes of Michael Vick and Landry Jones over the last 4 1/2 games. All eyes, of course, will now be on Big Ben's week of practice.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/24/15 3:59pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is traveling with the team for their Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Landry Jones is still expected to be the starting quarterback for the game.
Huddle Up: There's a small possibility Big Ben will suit up against the Chiefs' atrocious pass defense but the more likely scenario is Landry Jones starts and Roethlisberger comes back next week.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/24/15 9:38pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones will start in place of QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) Sunday, Oct. 25, against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Jones will get the start against a bad Chiefs' pass defense. This will be Jones' first NFL start. With all the weapons around him and Kansas City's struggles versus the pass, Jones is a mid-range QB2 this week.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/23/15 5:55pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee), who is questionable to play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, is more likely to return in Week 8. If playing through pain is his only obstacle, he could suit up against the Chiefs. However, if his lateral agility is still in question, he's likely to sit out another week. Head coach Mike Tomlin said this week the team is preparing as if QB Landry Jones will make his first career start.
Huddle Up: Much to the chagrin of Steelers Country -- and Antonio Brown's fantasy owners in particular -- it looks like Big Ben's return is still a week or two away.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/21/15 2:20pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expecting to increase his practice workload in his fourth week of rehab from a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee and a bone bruise. He said he's 'excited to do a little more than I did last week,' but QB Landry Jones is the likely starter in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Roethlisberger only threw in 7-on-7 sessions last week. He's been doing cardio and leg presses in the training area in the last few days. Roethlisberger's pain is not fully subsided but knee stabilization is a bigger issue right now.
Huddle Up: A good target date for Big Ben's return might be the Nov. 1 showdown against the undefeated and division-leading Bengals, but it'll all depend on his continued progress.
Landry Jones - QBPosted 10/20/15 4:16pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones is being prepared as the starter in advance of Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs because 'he's the one that's healthy,' according to head coach Mike Tomlin. QBs Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and Michael Vick (hamstring) will have their progress monitored to determine their availability in practice or games. Jones threw for 168 yards and two touchdowns in relief of an injured Vick in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: The Steelers likely would've -- and should've -- considered starting Jones even if Vick were healthy this week following his Week 6 success. Facing the Chiefs' pass rush on the road at Arrowhead, though, will be a noticeable step up in the challenge department.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/19/15 10:16am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) said Sunday, Oct. 18, that he plans to be a full participant in practice this week and did not rule out playing in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Reports out of Pittsburgh paint Ben's view as optimistic, saying he's unlikely to play this week but could return the following game. But if you've been waiting on Roethlisberger--or Antonio Brown, for that matter, this has to be considered good news.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 10/19/15 2:57pm ET
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick (hamstring) has a small tear in his hamstring and could be at least a week away from returning.
Huddle Up: Vick will likely be out next week against the Chiefs. If Ben Roethlisberger isn't ready to return, Landry Jones will get the start. Jones will be an interesting QB2 against the dreadful Chiefs' pass defense.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/16/15 2:28pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) was officially ruled out for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as Big Ben is making progress, but his return realistically remains a week or two away. In the meantime, Michael Vick will make his third straight start, this time facing the formidable 5-1 Cardinals.
Antonio Brown - WRPosted 10/15/15 7:50pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown wants QB Michael Vick to trust him more and take more downfield shots through the air. Brown has just nine catches for 87 yards and no touchdowns in the two games that Vick has taken over for QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee). 'He's got to take some shots,' Brown said. 'I told him, trust me a little bit. Let me make some plays. Let's get a victory. It doesn't have to be that hard.' Vick is allowed to call audibles at the line of scrimmage but hasn't done it much because he's trying to gain a 'complete understanding' of the offense. Brown has been targeted 15 times in the last two games by Vick, compared to 35 targets in the first three weeks of the season.
Huddle Up: Brown owners have been caught in a tough spot as it's tough to bench a talent like Brown, who yet is still not getting the looks from the aerially-limited Vick. Try to ride it out, and hope Big Ben is able to come back in the next couple weeks.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 10/14/15 10:46pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not listed on the team's injury report heading into the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Bryant will make his season debut Sunday against Arizona. He'll be a QB3 with Mike Vick at QB.
