Steelers | Ladarius Green idle from ankle surgery

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:32:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) is out of organized team activities as he recovers from offseason ankle surgery. He doesn't have a firm timetable, but he's hopeful to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't affect his draft stock unless it bleeds far into camp. Green has a ton of upside in this offense, and he's an upper-middle option at the position.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has high expectations

Tue, 24 May 2016 22:16:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said the offense will be looking to average 30 points per game in 2016 even though WR Martavis Bryant has been suspended for the entire season. "It is still our goal," Roethlisberger said. "We were close last year, but we didn't get there." The Steelers averaged 26.4 points per game in 2015 but the average increased to 28.9 points when Roethlisberger started or played at least a half.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger will have plenty of weapons to work with this upcoming season even with Bryant out and should be a starting option in all leagues. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds of drafts, while Ladarius Green and Markus Wheaton should be owned in most leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell deflects injury proneness

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:54:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) doesn't believe each of his three injuries in each of his first three seasons in the NFL aren't indicative of him being injury prone. Bell said he's still going to be physical but protect himself at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Bell is still a top RB1 consideration despite coming off a serious injury. He has added value in PPR formats, too.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell full-go by camp?

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:41:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he will be 100% healthy by training camp. He has already participated in individual drills during organized team activities, including running and cutting, as he continues to recover from a torn medial collateral ligament.

Fantasy Tip: The prognosis is encouraging for Bell, but the Steelers probably won't push him too hard this offseason or in the preseason. There is a risk factor, of course, as he's coming off a serious injury, but he should still be viewed as a top-tier RB1, especially in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell says he'll be ready

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:19:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee), who is recovering from surgery for a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee, said he plans on making a full return in time for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Before we get our hopes up we'll want to see how Bell looks in training camp as he tests his surgically repaired knee. But if he's on track to be a full go in Week 1 this fall, Bell makes the case as a top overall fantasy pick, especially in point-per-reception setups.

Steelers | Eli Rogers could make roster

Mon, 23 May 2016 18:38:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers is not guaranteed a spot on the final roster, but he could receive some work as a slot receiver. The team was high on Rogers before the 2015 season but suffered an injury during the preseason.

Steelers | Pittsburgh may use two TEs in red zone

Mon, 23 May 2016 18:24:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TEs Ladarius Green and Jesse James may both be on the field at the same time in the red zone because of their height.

Fantasy Tip: Green should receive most of the playing time at tight end in 2016 because of his catching ability and should be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues. James likely will be used as a blocker but can be a threat close to the end zone since he is one of the tallest receivers on the team. He can still be avoided in most leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown's dancing can help

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:40:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown believes his experience on Dancing With the Stars can give him an advantage on the football field. "[Dance training] can definitely help me with football, change of direction, fluidity, constantly being ready for the next move," Brown said. "Dancing is all about the next move, being prepared for the next move in the midst of any move. It will definitely help with ankle strength, pushing off, change of direction."

Brown also said that he wants to be a Steeler for his entire career, saying it would be an honor to receive a contract extension at some point. "I always want to be a Steeler for life. We will let those things take its course," said Brown, who has 3,532 yards and 23 touchdowns since 2014. "I'm excited to get back on the field. ... My focus right now is to show up and become the best player."

Fantasy Tip: As if Brown needed any more help on the field. He was already dominating opposing defenses and is widely considered to be the top real-life receiver and fantasy receiver. He's easily worth a first-round pick, especially in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Demarcus Ayers has edge in roster battle

Thu, 12 May 2016 19:15:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR DeMarcus Ayers, WR Tyler Murphy, WR Eli Rogers and WR Shakim Phillips will likely battle for the No. 5 receiver job, and Ayers' ability to contribute as a kick returner could give him an edge. Special teams coordinator Danny Smith said he has been impressed by Ayers quickness.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unknown for OTAs

Wed, 11 May 2016 05:54:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) status for organized team activities in a few weeks is unknown, but he's expected to be limited if he's cleared. Training camp might be the best gauge used to determine his status as he's six months removed from right knee surgery. There's no timetable for a full return. As it stands, there's no definitive reason to believe Bell will miss Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's knee injury has been a bit of a mystery, but, as stated, he should be ready for the beginning of the season. It's not known if he'll be as effective or full strength until the season gets going. He's a high-end RB1 consideration with some caution flags after two severe knee injuries.
