Steelers | No surgery for DeAngelo Williams

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 12:54:56 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) will not need surgery on his injured foot this offseason, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Le'Veon Bell should be healthy and ready to go this offseason, too, which means Williams would once again assume his backup role. He filled in very nicely for Bell this season, but he won't receive a lot of playing time in 2016 if Bell can stay healthy.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams ruled out

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:44:22 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) has been ruled out for the divisional game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was never really expected to play this weekend. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) were both pretty productive in splitting the backfield duties in the wild-card round, but they face a much stiffer test this weekend. With a banged up Big Ben under center, both running backs are a tougher sell on FantasyScore.

Steelers | No practice for DeAngelo Williams

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:21:04 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is a long shot to play this weekend. Avoid him. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) face a tough matchup in the Denver Broncos, but Todman is especially intriguing as a deep sleeper as a pass-catching option out of the backfield.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams absent Wednesday

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 14:31:05 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: The chances of Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) playing against the Denver Broncos are slim to none. He was put back in a walking boot this week. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) were a formidable duo in the wild-card round and will continue to carry the load. The Broncos are a tough defense, but Todman has appeal as a contrarian pick to do damage in the passing game with Antonio Brown injured.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams back in boot

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 07:46:50 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) is back in a walking boot Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for him in the divisional round. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will be a midrange option against the Denver Broncos on FantasyScore.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams doesn't need practice

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 16:35:50 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) doesn't need to practice this week in order to play this weekend, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Williams' chances of playing against the Denver Broncos aren't looking good despite the prospect that he could still play without practicing. If Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is sidelined again, Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0%) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4%) would once again take over backfield duties. Neither is a great play against Denver, but Toussaint would be the better choice if you're determined to start a Pittsburgh running back.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams may not play

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 14:47:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams' (ankle) chances of playing against the Denver Broncos this weekend aren't looking good, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more and more like Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman will once again split backfield duties, but Toussaint had more touches last week and is a better FantasyScore option if you want to risk one of them versus a top notch Denver Broncos defense.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams visits foot specialist

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 13:30:38 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) visited foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson Monday, Jan. 11, but his status for the divisional playoffs remains uncertain.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Williams' status will need to be monitored throughout the week. If he can't play this weekend, Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman would continue to split playing time in Pittsburgh's backfield, but Touissaint would be the better play if you want to risk starting a running back against the Denver Broncos.
