Fantasy Tip: Jenkins is talented, but he's by no means a big threat to AB. Brown is one of the best options at receiver in fantasy on a weekly basis.

Fantasy Tip: Brown should return to the practice later in the week and will see plenty of targets in Week 13. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) is "perking up" and appears to be on track to return Week 13 against the New York Giants after undergoing minor knee surgery about three weeks ago, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Fantasy Tip: Le'Veon Bell has operated as the clear featured back in Pittsburgh since his return from suspension and there is little reason to believe that will change barring injury. However, Williams is one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football, making him a smart stash for any owner.

Fantasy Tip: Green has yet to play more than 14 snaps in any of the three games since his return, but it sounds as if that is about to change. He is rare downfield threat for a player at his position for a team that is beat up at receiver, and he flashed his big-play ability Thanksgiving night by gashing the Indianapolis Colts for 67 yards on two catches. While his biggest impact will probably be felt in 2017, he has at least entered the TE2 conversation.

Fantasy Tip: Coates has not been the same receiver since breaking his fingers a few weeks ago. He will continue to be part of the passing game, but owners should look for other options to use. Owners should avoid Coates until he is posts solid numbers.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green played only 14-of-54 snaps in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts after getting 20 total snaps in his first two weeks back from injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin sounded as if he's ready to see his level of participation increase. "There's one thing to be healthy. There's another to be football-ready. He's been healthy for a number of weeks, and we're seeing him display some football readiness, so hopefully that continues," Tomlin said.
Fantasy Tip: It's important to remember Green didn't log his first practice - offseason or regular season - with the team until Oct. 25, so the fact he is contributing at all a month later is rather amazing. He still shouldn't be expected to be a difference-maker during the fantasy playoffs, but he is definitely making a case for himself to head into 2017 on the right note.

Fantasy Tip: Brown torched the Colts deep early and often, showing once again why he is arguably the best fantasy option at his position.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared OL Brian Mihalik, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, RB Daryl Richardson, RB DeAngelo Williams, SS Shamarko Thomas, TE Xavier Grimble, QB Zach Mettenberger inactive for Week 12.
