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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Posted: 1/17/2017 11:12am ET
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
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.
