Fantasy Tip: It may have just been a day of rest for Green, and there has been no indication that his status for Week 14 is in jeopardy. Coming off a 110-yard performance, he is a TE1 against the Bills.

Fantasy Tip: As long as the weather in Buffalo is decent, Roethlisberger should be safe to use as a QB1 in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: The team probably was taking things easy with Roethisberger and should be ready to play in Week 14. He has thrown eight touchdowns and one interception over the last four games but does not play as well when he is on the road. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can check on Boswell's status later in the week, but he probably can be avoided in all leagues even if he plays.

Fantasy Tip: DHB is a field-stretcher and valuable special-teamer when healthy but offers virtually nothing in fantasy, outside of the occasional and unpredictable huge blow-up game. He can be left on waivers whenever he is cleared to return.
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:26:45 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Williams has been out since undergoing knee surgery after Week 9. The 33-year-old doesn't hold much fantasy value at the moment with Le'Veon Bell healthy and hogging all the touches out of the backfield, but he is one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football and should be owned by forward-thinking Bell owners.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was outshined by his friend Antonio Brown, but his team also came away with the win and Brown visited the end zone. He will face a tough pass defense in Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills, but remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 23:02:05 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 29 times for 118 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants, and he added six catches for 64 yards on seven targets. He has three straight 100-yard rushing performances for the first time in his career.
Fantasy Tip: Bell continues to carry fantasy owners down the stretch and into the playoffs. He will look for another big stat line in Week 14 against a Buffalo Bills rush defense which allowed a pair of rushing scores to Latavius Murray of the Raiders.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green posted six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. "I'm not close to where I thought I would be, but I'm getting closer," Green said Sunday, Dec. 4. "I'm building a little more confidence every game."
Fantasy Tip: Green was targeted 11 times, and it was a combination of Green getting better in the offense, healthier and the Giants not paying much mind to opposing tight ends. He is worth adding in all fantasy leagues in Week 14, especially if you continue to search for a replacement for someone like Rob Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: Randy Bullock will serve as the kicker for the Steelers this week, but owners in all leagues should be able to find a better option to use.
