Steelers | PIT not expected to re-sign Markus Wheaton

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:34:43 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton is not expected to be back with the team next season, "unless he has no other decent offers and returns for minimum salary," according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton will become an unrestricted free agent March 9, but no matter where he lands, he shouldn't even be considered as a potential draft pick in deep leagues. The 26-year-old was limited to just three games this past season due to a shoulder ailment, registering only four receptions for 51 yards. He should get a shot with some other NFL club, though.

Steelers | William Gay could be on bubble

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:27:22 -0800

Steelers | Pittsburgh unsure about Senquez Golson

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:17:50 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert indicated the team is not sure if they will be able to count on CB Senquez Golson (shoulder, foot) in 2017 since he has missed his first two seasons because of injury. Colbert said he is not sure if Golson lost any speed because of the foot injury he dealt with during his rookie season. The Steelers will not hesitate to select a cornerback in the 2017 NFL draft even if Golson is healthy.

Steelers | Pittsburgh expects Ladarius Green back

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:39:30 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is expected to be ready for the start of spring practice, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Fantasy Tip: Green's concussion history is concerning, but he showed flashes of his potential when healthy in 2016. Feel free to gamble on his TE1 upside, but make sure you have a solid alternative in place.

Steelers | Former coach expects Ben Roethlisberger back

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 15:53:23 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he expects Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger hinted about retirement after the season, but most people believe that he will play at least one more season. He recorded 3,819 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2016 and will have most of his weapons back next season. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ladarius Green yet to be cleared

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 17:48:50 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green is not currently in the NFL's concussion protocol, but he's yet to be cleared from a concussion that he sustained in the team's Week 15 game opposite the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: This is definitely concerning, as health continues to be a roadblock for the 26-year-old tight end. Green has flashed notable potential before of being a legitimate TE1, but until he proves he can stay healthy, owners should look elsewhere in that department. He was limited to just six games this past season.

Steelers | Pitt will tag Le'Veon Bell if needed

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 14:58:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell will hit the free-agent market March 9, and general manager Kevin Colbert said signing Bell and tagging Bell are both options. "The tag is always an option, and it's something we'll use if necessary," Colbert said. Colbert did add that even if Bell is tagged the Steelers still want to sign him to a long-term deal eventually.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is perennially one of the best running backs in the league. It would be in the Steelers' best interest to sign their star running back to a long-term contract sooner rather than later. It's unlikely that Bell will be playing for another team in 2017. He should be one of the first players taken in fantasy drafts as long as he is in good health.

Steelers | Pittsburgh iffy on Lawrence Timmons

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 14:13:23 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent LB Lawrence Timmons could be playing for another team in 2017. General manager Kevin Colbert said he would love to have Timmons finish his career as a Steeler, but implied that the Steelers are willing to let Timmons test the free-agent market if he's deemed too expensive for them to keep.

Steelers | Pitt wants two playmakers for life

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 12:19:03 -0800

The Pittsburgh Steelers want impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown to remain Steelers for the rest of their respective careers, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Fantasy Tip: One would hope so. Bell and Brown are two of the best players in the NFL and arguably the best at their respective positions. Both are early first-round picks no matter the format, as long as they're healthy.

Steelers | Pittsburgh wants Landry Jones back

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 12:10:56 -0800

Steelers | Landry Jones highly regarded in Pittsburgh

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 21:53:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent QB Landry Jones is viewed among the top backups in the NFL by the Steelers' decision-makers, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Gerry Dulac. Jones is viewed as being better than "80 percent of the other backups" by the Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones probably won't draw much attention on the open market, and re-signing with the Steelers could be in the best interest of his long-term goals given Ben Roethlisberger's age and injury history.
