Heath Miller - TEPosted 12/19/14 3:52pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Miller, who has 13 receptions for 151 yards and a TD over the last 3 games, will be out there as usual Sunday.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 12/16/14 12:59am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley are working very well together this season. With the game on the line late in the fourth quarter in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons, Haley gave Roethlisberger the freedom to decide between two different plays. The fact that Haley didn't insist on a run with a yard to gain shows how well the relationship between the coordinator and QB is going. Roethlisberger was 12-for-14 for 191 yards on plays in which the Falcons rushed at least five defenders, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has already had a career year with 4,415 passing yards and should eclipse his marks for completions (9 short at 366), TD passes (3 short at 29) and passer rating (.7 off at 103.4). Yeah, we'd say that's "clicking."
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 12/14/14 8:50pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has 2,043 total yards this season, eclipsing the team record of 2,034 previously held by former RB Barry Foster.
Huddle Up: Bell is arguably the best all-around running back in the NFL right now. He's the favorite to be the first overall selection in next year's fantasy drafts.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 12/3/14 6:13pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (wrist) said there is no broken bone in his right hand, despite rumors that speculated otherwise.
Huddle Up: Big Ben should be fine, but be wary of the tough matchup against a Cincy D that's allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 12/2/14 4:35pm ET
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the only player with at least 1,000 rushing yards and 600 receiving yards this year, but head coach Mike Tomlin isn't concerned about overworking the team's running back the way QB Ben Roethlisberger is. 'I'm not overly concerned about that,' Tomlin said. 'He's a highly conditioned guy, he's a mentally tough guy. Personally I think he's built for it. He's excited about having an opportunity to do that for us.'
Huddle Up: Only DeMarco Murray (288) and LeSean McCoy (243) have more rushing attempts, and only Matt Forte (78) has more receptions that his 65. But, hey, if the Steelers aren't concerned about the RB's workload, there's no way his fantasy owners should be -- especially since he's made it this far without issue. Keep saddling Bell up and riding him through the fantasy playoffs.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 11/28/14 5:54pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 28, and is listed as probable for Week 13.
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.
Troy Polamalu - SPosted 11/25/14 6:55pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers SS Troy Polamalu (knee) and CB Ike Taylor (forearm) both are expected to play in the team's Week 13 game, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: IDP alert as fantasy's 11th-ranked defense gets two key pieces back for the stretch run.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 11/20/14 10:07am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will receive as many carries as he can handle, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
Huddle Up: With the release of LeGarrette Blount the Steelers are thin at running back, but Bell has handled large workloads before and fantasy-wise now there's no risk of someone sniping him at the goal line.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 11/19/14 11:46pm ET
Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Steelers) went unclaimed on waivers Wednesday, Nov. 19, and is now an unrestricted free agent available to sign with any club.
Huddle Up: Blount will probably land with a team in the near future but the fact that no organization was willing to use a waiver claim on him says something. For now, Blount has no fantasy value.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 11/18/14 12:31am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 33 times for 204 yards and a touchdown while catching 2 passes for 18 yards Monday, Nov. 18 in a 27-24 road win over the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Bell added to his already strong season by hitting career highs in rushing yardage and attempts on the cold night in Nashville and even added his second rushing score of the year. The RB now has 1,435 total yards through 11 games and has become one of fantasy's true giants in only his second season. The only bad news for his owners is that the Steelers have their bye in Week 12.
LeGarrette Blount - RBPosted 11/18/14 3:24pm ET
The Pittsburgh Steelers released RB LeGarrette Blount on Tuesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Blount didn't receive a single carry Monday night for the first game this season while Le'Veon Bell was tearing up the Titans with 33 rushes for 204 yards, and he reportedly left the field in disgust before the game was over. The Steelers, however, displayed their disgust by making the move Tuesday and likely are now in the market for another back as rookie Dri Archer is currently the only RB listed behind Bell on the depth chart.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 11/18/14 6:38pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who had six touchdowns in his first four games entering Week 11, was held to two catches (five targets) and 11 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Monday, Nov. 17.
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.
Troy Polamalu - SPosted 11/4/14 4:07pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers SS Troy Polamalu (knee) has been ruled out for the team's Week 10 game, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: IDP leaguers take note as the SS will miss his first game since 2012.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 11/4/14 11:40pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has five touchdown catches among his 10 receptions in his first three NFL games, and he has provided the offense with a spark as a big-bodied receiver that could become the No. 2 behind WR Antonio Brown. Bryant is a great option in the red zone who can exploit weaknesses in opposing secondaries.
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.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 11/3/14 10:26am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw six touchdown passes in the Week 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens, giving him 12 over the past two games to tie an NFL record.
Huddle Up: Big Ben brings his hot streak into a Week 10 matchup with the Jets' putrid pass defense; what's the record for most TD passes over a three-game span?
Heath Miller - TEPosted 10/31/14 5:36pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Miller will be out there Sunday night against the Ravens, looking to follow up on his best fantasy outing of the year: A 7-112-1 Week 8 performance against the Colts. Baltimore, though, allows the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing TEs.
Antonio Brown - WRPosted 10/28/14 8:01pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown leads the NFL with 87 targets and 60 catches and is second in receiving yards with 852 after the first eight weeks of the season. Brown is on pace for 120 catches and 1,704 yards, which would both be team records. He set the team record for receiving yards last year with 1,499. Brown has seven touchdowns, which is just one fewer than he had all of last year. He had 10 catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Fantasy's No. 1 wideout, is truly in the midst of an amazing season, and perhaps the most impressive aspect has been his consistency. Brown has had an NFL-record 24 straight games -- a streak that began in the opening game of the 2013 season -- with at least 5 receptions and 50 receiving yards. He's at least 5 catches and 84 yards in all 8 of his games this season.
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 40 of his 49 pass attempts for 522 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts. His passing yardage and touchdowns were each franchise records, as he racked up his 100th victory in his 150th NFL start. In fact, Roethlisberger's yardage total was the fourth highest in NFL history. Roethlisberger is now 18-1 at home in the month of October.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger shredded a Colts defense fresh off a shutout of the Bengals, one that ranked highly across the board--especially in defending the pass. His passing prowess kept Antonio Brown atop the receiver rankings, reinforced Martavis Bryant as an up-and-coming star, and even returned tight end Heath Miller to fantasy relevancy. And he did it all while dresses like a bumblebee for Halloween.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller posted seven receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Miller joins former WRs John Stallworth and Hines Ward as the only players in team history with 500 receptions.
Huddle Up: Miller has never been an elite fantasy tight end, but he's been a reasonably consistent contributor for much of his career. This season he's been off to a bit of a slow start, but this week reminded everyone he's still capable of helping a fantasy squad if you're fortunate enough to plug him in at the right time.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 10/21/14 1:26am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 12 times for 57 yards and caught 8 passes for 88 yards and a TD Monday, Oct. 20 in a 30-23 win over the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Thanks to his career-high 8 catches for 88 yards -- also matching a career single-game best -- Bell totaled 145 yards from scrimmage and now has at least 105 in every game this season. His fantasy owners, though, were probably the most pleased to see him find his way into the end zone for the first time since Week 1.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 10/21/14 2:32pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three 'shot' plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.
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.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 10/20/14 8:13pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR Martavis Bryant is expected to make his NFL debut Monday, Oct. 20 as he avoided the inactive list for the first time this season. Meanwhile, the Steelers have declared OG Chris Hubbard, CB Ike Taylor, WR Justin Brown, QB Landry Jones, LB Ryan Shazier, SS Shamarko Thomas, DL Steve McLendon inactive for Week 7.
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.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 10/15/14 10:22am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, Oct. 15, on marijuana possession and driving under the influence chargers. That means he and his attorney acknowledge police have enough evidence for the charges to go to Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, where Bell must either plead to all or some of the charges or stand trial.
Huddle Up: There certainly seems to be a preponderance of evidence in this case; fantasy owners have to hope the wheels of justice spin slowly enough that Bell's suspension doesn't come down at a critical juncture of the fantasy season. Is Marshawn Lynch's lawyer available?
Ben Roethlisberger - QBPosted 10/11/14 3:39pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 365 yards with a touchdown in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, the team's Week 6 opponent. Over his past eight starts against the Browns, Roethlisberger has thrown two or more touchdown passes. However, in 19 career starts, he has eclipsed 281 yards just twice.
Huddle Up: Big Ben is a viable QB1 this week against a struggling Browns pass defense.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 10/10/14 4:28pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and is listed as probable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Miller is there if you need him in a decent matchup against the Browns, who allow the 13th most fantasy points to opposing TEs.
Le'Veon Bell - RBPosted 10/9/14 5:56pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell wasn't the focus of the offensive in the Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. QB Ben Roethlisberger threw nine passes, was sacked twice and didn't hand the ball off once in the red zone in the game. Bell ran for 82 yards on 15 carries in the game, and he has 460 yards this year. "I feel like a lot of runners in the NFL: the more they get the ball, the more they get into a rhythm," Bell said. "The better (rhythm) I get, the game kind of slows down for you. You get into kind of a zone, as people will say."
Huddle Up: Bell had a season-high 21 rushes and 6 catches for 197 total yards in the season opener against the Browns, and look for the Steelers to go to the well again this Sunday in Cleveland.
Ike Taylor - CBPosted 10/7/14 6:50pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) remains out, and his arm is still in a cast after surgery a couple weeks ago.
Huddle Up: Taylor will be back sooner rather than later, but the Steelers' passing D hasn't crumbled without their top cover man, allowing a total of 474 passing yards over the last 2 games.
Heath Miller - TEPosted 9/24/14 4:38pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Like just an early-week maintenance day for the veteran TE, but certainly check back in on his status later in the week.
Lance Moore - WRPosted 9/16/14 7:02pm ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) practiced in full Tuesday, Sept. 16, and the team will keep tabs on how he responds this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Moore has missed the first two regular season games.
Huddle Up: Sounds like Moore is likely to make his Steeler debut Sunday night in Carolina, and if so, his targets figure to come at the expense of second-year wideout Justin Brown who's seen 8 passes directed his way in 2 games.
Antonio Brown - WRPosted 9/12/14 12:00am ET
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown passed all tests after being evaluated for a concussion and returned to the team's Week 2 Game Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: After what appeared was going to be an early exit, Brown returned and finished with 7 catches for 90 yards on 12 targets -- all game highs. He also picked up 10 yards rushing on a pair of end-around runs to finish with double-digit fantasy points on an otherwise forgettable night for the Pittsburgh offense.
