Steelers | Martavis Bryant should up snap count

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 17:40:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant played an average of just 29% of offensive snaps in 2014, but he is expected to serve as the primary No. 2 receiver on the outside in 2015 with WR Markus Wheaton moving to more of a slot role.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant found the end zone eight times in just 10 games, and a full season in a bigger role gives him an enormous ceiling. There is still some risk involved with taking a relatively unproven player, but he is well worth the gamble as a WR3.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant can stretch the field

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 18:32:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant had eight touchdown catches and five catches of 40-plus yards in 10 games as a rookie.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is big play waiting to happen with his combination of size, speed and leaping ability. His role in the offense should only grow in 2015, and he is worth taking a chance on as a WR3.

Steelers | PIT has two candidates for No. 2 WR job

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 10:30:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant are expected to compete for the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp. Both players performed well during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Both players should see plenty of playing time this season, so being a starting wide receiver likely will not matter much to fantasy owners. Bryant has the potential to be a starting option most weeks and could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts. Wheaton could be a late-round option in drafts

Steelers | Martavis Bryant may be red zone target

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 10:29:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant could be targeted in the red zone more often this season since he is 6-foot-4. Bryant had four receptions in the red zone last season and all of the catches were for touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has a chance to win a starting job during training camp but will have a solid role in the passing game even if he does not start. Bryant caught eight touchdowns in limited playing time in 2014 and should be an option in the middle rounds of drafts this season.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant gaining confidence

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 04:57:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has focused on improving his game and mastering the flanker position this offseason, which has shown in his on-field confidence, according to Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley. QB Ben Roethlisberger has gained trust in Bryant, per Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey. Bryant turned heads during organized team activities during the week and can play both inside and outside.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant scored six times in his first four NFL games last year but failed to snare more than 12 passes the rest of the way. He will likely split time with WR Marcus Wheaton and should be at least a flex play most weeks.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant adds weight

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 06:41:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has been working out three times per day this offseason and currently weighs 225 pounds, which is 10 pounds more than he weighed during his rookie season. "Everyone gets bigger and better every year," Bryant said. "I wanted to make sure I got better. I didn't want to slack off or become complacent. I had some things I wanted to get done in the offseason, so I went to work."

Fantasy Tip: Bryant made the most of his limited playing time last season with eight touchdowns on 26 receptions. He is expected to compete for a starting job during training camp. Bryant should be a solid fantasy option if he continues his ability to score touchdowns and could be selected in the middle rounds of drafts.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant could start in 2015

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 13:06:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to push WR Markus Wheaton for the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. "We are looking for him to come in and make a push against Markus Wheaton for that No. 2 spot and continue give us big-time production, specifically in the red area where a big target like that can make a big impact," Haley said.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant made a big impact after he was on the active roster for games by catching eight touchdowns in 10 games. He should have a bigger role in the passing game this season and should continue to be a main target in the red zone. Owners can consider selecting Bryant in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant ready for next step

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 10:33:10 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who had 26 catches, 549 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season, is eager to improve upon his numbers in his sophomore season in 2015. Bryant plans to work out with WR Antonio Brown this offseason in Miami. His eight touchdowns put him tied for fourth in the league among rookies.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant became a much-welcomed weapon for Ben Roethlisberger this season, and the two should develop more chemistry next season. Bryant is much more valuable in standard fantasy football leagues for his big-play touchdown potential. He gives the Steelers a very dangerous vertical threat all over the field.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant elevated

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 07:14:45 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has been promoted to WR2 on the depth chart over WR Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been fairly useless in fantasy after his midseason breakout. He's a boom candidate as a flex in Week 17, but the bust possibility is quite real.

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 13:30:27 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 28, and is listed as probable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been one of the team's more productive wide receivers over the last several weeks and has been finding the end zone. Bryant has a price of $5,300 on FantasyScore and could be a good option since the New Orleans Saints have had problems against wide receivers.
