Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Hartley's status after the game to see how long he may be sidelined. Hartley could be a solid fantasy option if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, neither quarterback will have any fantasy value.

Fantasy Tip: The only way Vick will have any fantasy value is if Ben Roethlisberger suffers an injury. Even then, Vick may back up Landry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey did not have much of a role in the offense last season and received most of his time on special teams. He probably would not receive a lot of targets in the first four games and should not be an option in drafts.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant's impending four-game suspension is for failing marijuana tests, according to a source. The suspension's appeal is in its latter stages.
Fantasy Tip: If the suspension holds, Bryant drops into low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 territory. Meanwhile, Markus Wheaton would get a pretty big boost. He should be considered in the same territory as Bryant if the suspension is upheld.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, the fact that Martavis Bryant could be suspended four games will really help Wheaton's chances of breaking out. Wheaton has played well this preseason, though. A breakout season wouldn't be surprising. View him as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4.

Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) may be able to return this season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin said how Pouncey heals after surgery will dictate if he's able to return or not.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has WR3 potential, and it's possible he'll get a game knocked off. However, he has been running with the second team in camp and will have to earn his way back into a featured role in the offense. He's in WR4 territory right now, while Markus Wheaton bumps up to WR4 status as well.

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, Aug. 25. Financial terms were not disclosed. QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Fantasy Tip: This is Ben Roethlisberger's offense, there's no questioning that. If Roethlisberger is injured at some point, however, Vick could make for a nice fill-in if he is able to pass Landry Jones on the depth chart.
