The Pittsburgh Steelers still have heard nothing from the league regarding WR Martavis Bryant's reinstatement from suspension days before the NFL Draft. According to general manager Kevin Colbert, the team now must "operate under the assumption that, until he is here, he is not here."
Fantasy Tip: While that's unfortunate news for Pittsburgh, considering they might acquire wide receiver help in the draft before potentially learning that they'll get the suspended wide-out back for the season, this isn't as harmful to fantasy owners. There's still plenty of time for Bryant to return to the team leading up to next season, and if he is indeed back, he'll definitely be someone to watch, having a solid WR2 ceiling.

Suspended Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant met Thursday, April 13, with the NFL's Management Council as part of his efforts for reinstatement from a year-long drug suspension. Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: There's been speculation Bryant was on the verge of being reinstated for a couple months already, but if the league can help him avoid any future suspensions by having him lay out this plan now, it is worth the wait. Bryant would obviously be a risky fantasy bet going forward, but he has low-end WR2 upside and 10-plus touchdown potential if he can stay on the straight and narrow.

Fantasy Tip: Heath Miller is gone and Ladarius Green didn't see much of the field last year due to poor health. Green would presumably be the favorite to start even if the Steelers do draft a tight end. If Green is fully healthy before the season begins, he can be drafted as a low-end TE1 to high-end TE2. As for Roethlisberger, he is over the hill and should no longer be regarded as a QB1.

Michigan S Jabrill Peppers could very well be drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers if he were to last until their 30th overall pick, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala. General manager Kevin Colbert said he would love to draft the star safety out of Michigan.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger suggested retirement was a possibility for him shortly after the team's AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots, but few - including the Steelers - seemed to take him all that seriously. Even though he is coming back, Pittsburgh would be well-served to make finding his heir apparent a priority. For fantasy purposes, Big Ben should be considered a midrange to low-end QB1 in 2017.
