• Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 9/27/16 10:05am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell can expect to see a heavy workload in his season debut in Week 4 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. 'Rest assured, you're going to see Le'Veon Bell and a lot of him Sunday,' Tomlin said.

    Huddle Up: This comes as music to the ears of Bell's owners, most of whom invested a late-first or early-second round pick in him despite his three-game suspension. A bit of rust should be expected, but few backs bring the same kind of upside and consistency to the table that Bell does. As such, owners should plug him immediately into their lineups and begin the process of handcuffing him to DeAngelo Williams if they haven't done so already.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 9/26/16 7:19am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will return from his three-game suspension in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Bell will face a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in his season debut. He'll be a low-end RB1, but rust to a certain degree should be expected.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 3:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (toe) suffered a toe injury in the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was unable to return.

    Huddle Up: Rogers posted two grabs for 32 yards on five targets before departing. He has emerged as a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but he should be reserved until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 3:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton missed the first two games of the season but should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 3. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but could stay on the bench if owners have more favorable matchups.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/22/16 7:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 22, after being given a day off Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams has 237 rushing yards and 10 catches through two games, and he should be considered a RB1 in Week 3 in what will likely be his final start before Le'Veon Bell returns.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/22/16 7:44pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton is expected to make his season debut in Week 3, and he immediately warrants consideration as a flex option.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/21/16 5:14pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was held out of the team's Week 2 game but appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3. He should receive solid playing time during the game and can be a flex option in most leagues.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/21/16 5:13pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams will be fine for the team's Week 3 game and will be receiving his last start before Le'Veon Bell returns. Williams has been one of the best running backs through the first two weeks of the season and should be a starter in all fantasy leagues.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/18/16 8:37am ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will not play in Week 2's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He is expected to need another week to recover.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was able to participate on a limited basis in practice last week, so he should be good to go for Week 3's contest versus the Philadelphia Eagles. WRs Antonio Brown and Eli Rogers and TE Jesse James should see the bulk of the targets in Week 2.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/18/16 9:06am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Eli Rogers likely will be more involved in the passing game with Wheaton sidelined. He recorded 59 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and was targeted seven times during the game. Rogers can be a fine flex option for owners and should have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 9/18/16 9:36am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers has earned the trust of his coaches and teammates and is expected to have an expanded role against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Rogers should continue to be the slot receiver for the Steelers and may be targeted more often moving forward. He likely will be owned in most fantasy leagues and could be a solid flex option against certain opponents.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 9/18/16 10:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James posted three receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: The 6-foot-7 tight end is quickly developing a nice rapport with Ben Roethlisberger, a quarterback who has traditionally relied heavily on his tight ends. He is still not quite a must-start fantasy option, but if your primary option is struggling, James is worth keeping an eye on.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 9/18/16 10:27pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in four receptions for just 39 yards in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted 11 times.

    Huddle Up: Brown's production was obviously a far cry from his opening week performance, and not very becoming of a first-round fantasy pick. He should rebound nicely in Week 3 in the Keystone State rivalry against the Eagles.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 9/18/16 10:29pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 19 of his 37 pass attempts for 259 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also added one run for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger didn't connect with Antonio Brown like last week, but he tossed a touchdown each to Xavier Grimble, Jesse James and DeAngelo Williams. He has quite the arsenal in Pittsburgh and remains a must-have QB1 in all formats heading into Week 3 at Philadelphia.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/18/16 10:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams carried 32 times for 94 yards in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he added four receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams is filling in admirably for the suspended Le'Veon Bell, who is out at least one more week. Williams remains a low-end RB1 in all fantasy formats the way he is performing.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/16/16 1:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton has on the practice field all three days this week and should have a good chance to play in Week 2. Wheaton likely will be in the starting lineup if he is active for the game but may not be a great option for owners since the team is facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/15/16 5:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 15, after receiving a rest day.

    Huddle Up: Williams faces a tough matchup against Cincinnati in Week 2, but he should see enough touches to deploy as a RB2.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 5:30pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton has a chance to emerge as the No. 2 option behind Antonio Brown. He should be owned in most formats, but he is a risky flex play against Cincinnati in Week 2.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/14/16 2:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton appears to be on track to play in Week 2 after sitting out the first game and likely will be in the starting lineup. The Steelers likely will spread the ball around in the passing game, which will hurt Wheaton's value. He could be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 2:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Williams is receiving a rest day and should see most of the carries in Week 2 after rushing for 143 yards in the opener. He should be a starting option in all leagues even though he will be facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 9/14/16 10:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will play the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, and generally that's good news for the receiver. He has been targeted 48 times in his past four games against the Bengals, posting 29 receptions for 379 yards with two touchdowns. He has at least five catches in eight straight outings against Cincinnati.

    Huddle Up: Brown showed why he is the No. 1 overall fantasy option in most leagues with a giant stat line in Week 1, and he shouldn't take much of a step back in Week 2.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 9/14/16 10:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Last season he completed 58 of his 84 pass attempts for 544 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in two regular season games against the Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners cannot afford to sit Big Ben, not as long as he has No. 84 healthy and available. Despite last season's poor output against the 'Nati, Roethlisberger is a fantasy stud and worth using in Week 2 in all formats. Plus, he had five TD passes and just one INT in two games in 2014 against the Bengals.

  • Sammie Coates - WR
    Posted 9/12/16 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.

  • Eli Rogers - WR
    Posted 9/12/16 7:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers posted six receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Rogers quickly scooted up the depth chart during training camp and the preseason, and he made the most of his opportunity with a strong opening effort. He is worth a look as a WR4 with some upside heading into Week 2 against Cincinnati.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 9/12/16 7:55pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in eight receptions for a game-high 126 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Brown looked sensational and showed why he was a consensus top pick in fantasy football this season. He should have another strong effort in Week 2 at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. Over his past eight games against the Bengals he has 52 receptions for 695 yards and four scores.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB
    Posted 9/12/16 7:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams carried 26 times for 143 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins and he also racked up six receptions for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: D-Will, subbing for the suspended Le'Veon Bell, had a huge game and is a viable RB2 in all fantasy formats until Bell returns in Week 4. Don't drop Williams, though, once Bell is back, as he should still have some kind of role in the offense.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 9/12/16 7:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of his 37 pass attempts for 300 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins. He fumbled twice, but was able to recover each ball.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown hooked up for a pair of pretty touchdown receptions, and appear to be in midseason form already. Big Ben remains a low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats, especially as long as Brown is healthy and available.

  • Darrius Heyward-Bey - WR
    Posted 9/10/16 12:30pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey likely will share playing time at outside receiver in Week 1 since WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) has been ruled out. WR Eli Rogers will be the slot receiver.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how Coates and Heyward-Bey will be used, but they probably will not receive a lot of targets during the game and can be avoided in most leagues. Rogers should be more involved in the passing game and could be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues.

  • Sammie Coates - WR
    Posted 9/10/16 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.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR
    Posted 9/9/16 11:40am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) missed practice again Friday, September 9, and 'looks unlikely' to suit up for the team's season opener Monday, September 12.

    Huddle Up: It'll be a tricky situation for his fantasy owners come Monday night, as it looks like a decision will have to be made well before Wheaton's status is even confirmed. Those who want to try and ride him out should also attempt to add Sammie Coates or Darrius Heyward-Bey off the waiver wire, as they would be in line for additional targets should Wheaton end up inactive.
