Steelers | Le'Veon Bell piles up yards

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 21:30:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tallied 107 total yards in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, rushing 11 times for 59 yards and catching five passes for 48 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh fell behind and had to abandon the run, but Bell's versatility as a pass-catcher still allowed him to salvage a decent game. More importantly, the first two weeks of the season suggest that LeGarrette Blount is not going to a major factor in the backfield. Bell could have a tough time against a stout Carolina defense in Week 3, but he is worth considering as a starting running back in FantasyScore whenever he has a decent matchup.

Steelers | Antonio Brown cleared to return

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:35:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (head) passed all tests after being evaluated for a concussion and will return to the team's Week 2 Game Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Brown dodged a bullet and avoided any serious injury. After catching 110 balls last year and opening 2014 with five catches for 116 yards and score, Brown has established himself as one of the more reliable fantasy options at the position.

Steelers | Concussion for Antonio Brown?

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:02:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (head) left the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, and is being evaluated for a possible concussion. His return is questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on the exact diagnosis and severity of Brown's injury. If he is forced to miss any time going forward, Markus Wheaton could potentially become a great value pick in FantasyScore in the coming weeks.

Steelers | Antonio Brown fined

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:28:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has been fined $8,200 for cleating Cleveland Browns P Spencer Lanning in the face in Sunday's game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brown wasn't suspended, so this ruling really has no bearing on his fantasy value. He's still a top-tier fantasy wide receiver.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moore only had a few days to get ready and will sit out his second straight game. Moore will not be a fantasy option until he recovers from the injury.

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:22:33 -0700

Steelers | Markus Wheaton earning trust

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 18:05:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton had six catches for 97 yards in Week 1, including a 20-yard catch late in the game that set up the game-winning field goal. QB Ben Roethlisberger said he didn't consider it a gamble to look for Wheaton in the crucial situation.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton appeared to be the clear No. 2 option in the passing game in Week 1, and it looks like Roethlisberger has plenty of trust in the second-year receiver. He will take up 11% of your cap ($5,500) in FantasyScore in Week 2, and he could provide a great return on investment against a Baltimore defense that gave up more than 300 yards through the air in Week 1.

Steelers | Steelers starters return to full practice

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:34:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury), WR Antonio Brown (non-injury) and QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) practiced in full Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: All three were given a little rest with a limited practice yesterday in the midst of a short week. They will play in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night. Start all three as you normally would.

Steelers | Lance Moore doesn't practice

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:31:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Moore wasn't active in Week 1 and doesn't have much time to heal before Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night. He'll be cheap $3,700 (7.4% of cap), but even if he does play, Markus Wheaton is the more intriguing wideout option behind Antonio Brown in this offense.

Steelers | Heath Miller resting

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:26:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) didn't practice Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: On a short week, the Steelers are electing to rest the vet Miller. He had only four targets and three catches in Week 1 for 26 yards. You can likely find better values than Miller ($5,300; 10.6% of cap) at FantasyScore this week.
