Pittsburgh Steelers news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 13 Oct 2015 05:57:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Big Ben ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) would have a tough draw this week. Michael Vick ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) isn't a good FantasyScore option if Roethlisberger can't go.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) doesn't have the same rapport with Michael Vick as he does with the injured Ben Roethlisberger, so avoid him in FantasyScore until Big Ben is back.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 21 times for 111 yards and the game-winning touchdown with no time left in regulation in Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Oct. 12. He also added four receptions for 16 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Bell ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) has a rather high price tag, but he remains worth it in FantasyScore since the Steelers are leaning upon him heavily with struggling Michael Vick under center for the injured Ben Roethlisberger.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick completed 13 of his 26 pass attempts for 203 yards, one touchdowns and one interception in the Week 5 win against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Oct. 12. He also had one run for 24 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Vick ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has really struggled in the Pittsburgh offense, and a bulk of his production came on one 72-yard pass play when Markus Wheaton was wide open. Avoid Vick in FantasyScore going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) has struggled to put up numbers since Ben Roethlisberger went down to injury in St. Louis. At this salary level Brown should be avoided in FantasyScore, as he is way overpriced since he doesn't have Michael Vick's eye like he does Big Ben's.
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 22:11:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wheaton ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) does not get enough targets to use on a regular basis, and most of the Pittsburgh Steelers are struggling to put up numbers with Michael Vick under center for the injured Ben Roethlisberger.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expected to wear a knee brace for the first time in his NFL career when he returns from his medial collateral ligament injury and bone bruise. However, he is resistant to the idea.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has a ways to go before he's back on the field on game day, but when he's ready, he should immediately return as a strong play on FantasyScore with all the weapons around him in the offense.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) wants to play in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers have not ruled out the possibility of Roethlisberger playing but consider it a longshot.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Roethisberger is close to returning to the field but may miss at least one more game. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation to see if he has a chance to play. Owners should have another quarterback ready in case Roethlisberger sits for another game.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Vick is still quarterbacking this offense, so the value of Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey still isn't what it could be. Bryant should be able to return next week barring any unforeseen setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Bryant's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) practice participation next week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 6. Markus Wheaton ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Darrius Heyward-Bey ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should continue to see solid playing time but are not strong options for fantasy owners.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5 versus the San Diego Chargers. CB Cortez Allen (knee) is listed as questionable. DT Daniel McCullers (knee), TE Matt Spaeth (hand) and S Ross Ventrone (hamstring) are listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) still has decent value this week with Martavis Bryant looking like he won't play. The Pittsburgh passing game isn't nearly as effective without Ben Roethlisberger, however, so Wheaton should be taken with a grain of salt.
