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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
