Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expects his offense to finish first in offense in 2015 after they were second in total offense in 2014. "My expectation is they're capable of being the very best because we've got the goods," Tomlin said. "We've got guys that are capable, we've got guys that know what they're doing, we've got guys that played together for an extended period of time now so that's a reasonable expectation." The Steelers averaged 411.1 yards and 27.3 points per game in 2014, and they're returning every starter on offense.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Dri Archer will have a role on offense that will take advantage of his speed, but people have to be patient with his development, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Archer could also be used as a kick returner next season.
Fantasy Tip: Archer was limited to 40 rushing yards and 23 receiving yards this past season but could be more productive with an offseason to work on his things. Archer could see more playing time in the first few games of the 2015 season if Le'Veon Bell is suspended. Archer could be an option in the later rounds of drafts, but owners should not expect big numbers.

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.
