• Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/17/17 9:37am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

    Huddle Up: Green has been sidelined since Week 15, although Tomlin said he had a chance to play in the Divisional Round before ultimately being ruled out. Although Jesse James had a fine game last week, the Steelers could really use all hands on deck in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots after failing to score a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Owners should consider him highly questionable at best.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 1/17/17 11:12am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant applied for reinstatement Tuesday, Jan. 17, according to a source. Bryant will not be able to return for the playoffs, but he could return for the 2017 regular season.

    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.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/16/17 1:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may be fined for violating the NFL's social media policy for his post-game live stream in the Steelers' locker room. League policy prohibits players from posting messages on social media 90 minutes before kickoff through post-game interviews.

    Huddle Up: Other than a possible fine, don't expect harsh repercussions from Brown's post-game gaffe. He's the best receiver in the NFL and should be the first receiver taken in fantasy drafts next season, particularly in PPR leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/15/17 10:08am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may receive a contract extension this offseason that would make him the highest paid receiver in the NFL. The deal could pay him more than the $15 million that Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green receives per season.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been underpaid over the last few seasons but should receive a lucrative extension at some point this offseason. He has become one of the best receivers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/15/17 9:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards, with no touchdowns, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Yardage leagues would have gained many points from Bell's performance, but don't let that discourage you from including Bell among RB1 or RB2 selections for next season. Assuming Bell keeps his nose clean and stays away from substances, he should be setting himself up well for a good payday and a strong 2017.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/15/17 9:36pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception and was 20 of 31 for 224 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger ranks as a QB2 mostly because of his injury history, but he will get a shot at elite status again when he faces the New England Patriots in next week's AFC championship game. Roethlisberger wasn't playing earlier this season when Pittsburgh lost to New England in the regular season.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/15/17 10:20pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught six of his 11 targeted passes for 108 yards, including a long catch of 52 yards, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Brown is quickly becoming the linchpin of the Steelers' receiving game and is a solid WR1 as long as Ben Roethlisberger remains healthy at quarterback.

  • Jesse James - TE
    Posted 1/15/17 10:32pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had five catches for 83 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: With Pittsburgh's lack of receiving depth (Antonio Brown and Eli Rogers), James has emerged as a quality pass-catching candidate. Assuming he still is in the Steelers' plans for 2017, James can be thought of as a low-end TE1 option in 2017 drafts.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/13/17 11:21am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for the team's Divisional Round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 15, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Green hasn't played since Week 15, and considering he hasn't even practiced this week, it seems highly unlikely that he'll be able to suit up on Sunday. With Green headed towards his fourth straight absence, Jesse James should once again get the majority of snaps at tight end, and actually could end up being one of the best values at his position this weekend for DFS.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/13/17 1:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was able to practice in each of the last two games and will not be limited during the game. He will be playing in inclement weather and has struggled on the road, so owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/13/17 1:12pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is listed as doubtful for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Green has not been cleared to play yet and likely will miss another game because of his concussions, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Jesse James likely will start at tight end for the Steelers but should also be avoided.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR
    Posted 1/13/17 7:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he has taken his year-long suspension seriously because he understands he is out of chances. Bryant said he has trimmed down his friend circle and has put on 10 pounds of muscle.

    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.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/13/17 9:45pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he could see himself playing receiver later in his career when the wear and tear of playing running backs starts to take a toll.

    Huddle Up: A move to receiver could end up adding a few years to the end of his career, but for now, Bell is one of the most complete running backs in the game a top-three fantasy option at his position.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/12/17 12:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger should be fine for the playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He posted solid overall numbers during the regular season but has struggled on the road in 2016. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners and should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/12/17 12:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Green will miss another game, so owners should avoid him in all fantasy leagues. Jesse James probably will receive a few targets during the game but is not a strong fantasy option and can be avoided.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/12/17 6:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's unique running style is difficult to prepare for, according to Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry, and defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said Bell's patience makes it hard for defenders to remain in their gaps.

    Huddle Up: Bell ran for 144 yards on 18 carries against Kansas City in the regular season, and the Chiefs' 26th-ranked run defense isn't likely to have an answer for him in this weekend's rematch either. Bell should be one of the top overall fantasy plays in the divisional round.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/11/17 9:44am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) was walking without a limp Wednesday, Jan. 11, and he's expected to have a full week of practice. Head coach Mike Tomlin said the team would monitor Roethlisberger's foot closely.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben threw for 300 yards and five touchdowns in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Chiefs were the best defense against opposing QBs in fantasy the last five weeks of the season. Roethlisberger will be an option under the elite tier in fantasy this weekend.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/11/17 12:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger should be able to practice later in the week and likely will be in uniform for the Divisional Round playoff game. He has struggled on the road this season and may be limited by the foot injury, so owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/11/17 12:58pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Green is still in the concussion protocol and will not be able to play if he does not receive clearance from the doctors. Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but he probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues even if he is active for the game.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/11/17 12:55pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Bell has received a lot of touches this season, so he was just receiving a day off to rest. Bell will be used in the running and passing game against the Kansas City Chiefs and should be an attractive starting option in all leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/10/17 9:29am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) may be held out of practice Wednesday, Jan. 11, but head coach Mike Tomlin told the media Tuesday, Jan. 10, that Roethlisberger's foot injury 'shouldn't be an issue.'

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was spotted wearing a walking boot at his postgame presser, but there have been multiple reports suggesting he will be fine for the Divisional Round game this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Given his road struggles over the past few years, Roethlisberger will be hard to trust as a fantasy starter in playoff leagues this weekend. Expect another heavy dose of Le'Veon Bell.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/10/17 9:49am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Jan. 11, for maintenance reasons after touching the ball 31 times in the team's Wild Card win over the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Expect a similar workload Sunday in Arrowhead Stadium. Bell has been on a serious roll since Week 11, amassing at least 137 total yards in every game while adding seven touchdowns. He gouged the Chiefs for 176 total yards on 23 touches in his season debut in Week 4 and figures to surpass that as Ben Roethlisberger historically struggles on the road. Bell should be considered the top RB play on the board again this weekend.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/10/17 10:41am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) participated in two full practices last week before sitting out the last one of the week after the team did not get the results they wanted from him following a post-practice test, keeping him in the league's concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Green may follow a similar routine this week, but he is far from a sure thing to suit up this weekend as he has not played since Week 15 and a troubling history with concussions. The Steelers' offense has been humming recently without him, but a healthy Green would further tax defenses and make Antonio Brown as well as Le'Veon Bell even harder to defend. Even if he clears protocol this week, he'll spend most of the game in Eric Berry's coverage, making him a poor option in fantasy.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/9/17 6:47am ET

    Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's (ankle) injured ankle checked out OK, according to sources, and it doesn't appear to be a bad sprain.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben is expected to suit up against the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round. The Chiefs were the best team against opposing QBs the last five weeks of the regular season in terms of fantasy points allowed. Roethlisberger has his hands full, but he'll be one of the upper-middle QB options in fantasy.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/9/17 3:23pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) said he is no longer wearing a walking boot and that he is fine. Roethlisberger said an MRI showed that he aggravated an old foot fracture but it is not serious.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger may he limited during practice this week but should be on the field for the Divisional Round playoff game. He will be a risky option for owners in fantasy playoff leagues because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons. Owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Ladarius Green - TE
    Posted 1/8/17 7:47am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) will not play in the Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Jan. 8, after being unable to clear concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Green was a full participant in two practice sessions during the week but will be sidelined for the second consecutive game after failing to receive clearance from an independent neurologist. TEs Xavier Grimble and Jesse James are expected to split time at the position and have a favorable matchup versus the Dolphins, making them worthy of consideration for DFS lineups.

  • Antonio Brown - WR
    Posted 1/8/17 8:48am ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to work out a long-term deal this offseason with WR Antonio Brown, who is under contract through 2017.

    Huddle Up: The 28-year-old Brown had 106 receptions for 1,284 yards and 12 touchdowns during the regular season and is arguably the most productive receiver in the league. He should be viewed as a high-end WR1 in all postseason fantasy pools and is worthy of a first-round selection in 2017 seasonal drafts.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/8/17 8:36am ET

    Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to use the franchise tag on RB Le'Veon Bell this offseason, although they hope to work out a long-term deal with him.

    Huddle Up: Bell collected nearly 1,900 all-purpose yards and reached the end zone nine times in just 12 games during the regular season. The 24-year-old should be viewed as a high-end RB1 in postseason fantasy pools and deserves to be a first-round selection in all 2017 seasonal drafts.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB
    Posted 1/8/17 2:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins. He also caught two passes for seven yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bell continues to be one of the best running backs in the NFL and has recorded at least 118 rushing yards in six of his last seven games. He will be facing a tougher defense in the Divisional round of the playoffs but is still a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB
    Posted 1/8/17 2:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 13-for-18 for 197 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger did most of his damage in the first half of the game with two touchdowns in the first quarter but threw two interceptions in the second half. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in the Divisional Round and will be a risky option for owners because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons.
