Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger praises Martavis Bryant

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 22:17:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said WR Martavis Bryant "looks like a stud, as usual" when asked how the returning wide-out is fitting back in with the team.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant to work on chemistry

Wed, 31 May 2017 17:40:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he knows that it will take time for him to rebuild chemistry with QB Ben Roethlisberger and become more comfortable with the plays.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant works with first-team

Fri, 26 May 2017 21:27:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant worked with the first-team offense during OTAs and "looked great on the field while showing a more mature demeanor," according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant expected to practice

Mon, 22 May 2017 15:08:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be on the field for organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant absent from workouts

Mon, 01 May 2017 20:41:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant was not on the field for the team's "Phase 2" of their offseason workouts Monday, May 1. He still has "steps to take" before being able to rejoin his teammates for practices, including securing a local counselor. Bryant is "hopeful for minicamp or sooner."

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | More on Martavis Bryant

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 13:32:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cannot attend practices or play in the preseason until he finds a treating clinician. With the help of a clinician, Bryant must then plan activities for Pittsburgh's bye week and next offseason in an effort to keep him out of trouble.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant reinstated

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 13:12:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant was reinstated from his suspension Tuesday, April 25. Bryant served a season-long suspension last year for multiple violations of the league's substance-abuse policy.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Steelers still unsure about Martavis Bryant

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 22:04:58 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers still have heard nothing from the league regarding WR Martavis Bryant's reinstatement from suspension days before the NFL Draft. According to general manager Kevin Colbert, the team now must "operate under the assumption that, until he is here, he is not here."

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant meets with management council

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 10:09:28 -0700

Suspended Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant met Thursday, April 13, with the NFL's Management Council as part of his efforts for reinstatement from a year-long drug suspension. Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant's reinstatement imminent?

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 21:25:35 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expecting to hear back from the NFL soon in regards to his reinstatement from a year-long suspension for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Per the Beaver County Times' Chris Bradford, a league source told the paper on Wednesday, March 29, that Bryant's reinstatement is "imminent." According to Bryant's agents, the receiver has added 25 pounds of muscle and is in "excellent condition".

Fantasy Tip: 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.
