Steelers | Antonio Brown receives bonus

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:51:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown received a $2 million signing bonus as part of the restructured contracts of Brown, TE Heath Miller and PK Shaun Suisham, according to sources. Brown's salary increased to $8 million from $6 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers know they have one of, if not the, best wide receivers in the NFL. Brown tallied 129 catches for 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns last year. He should be the first receiver off draft boards in fantasy leagues.

Steelers | PIT restructures contracts

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:13:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, TE Heath Miller and PK Shaun Suisham all had their contracts restructured Tuesday, Sept. 1. The restructuring created about $6 million in salary cap space for the Steelers, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't have much of an impact on these three players as far as fantasy football is concerned. Brown is still arguably the top fantasy wideout. Miller is a TE2.

Steelers | Garrett Hartley placed on IR

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:22:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Garrett Hartley (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Hartley suffered the injury during the third preseason game but could play later this season if he fully recovers from his injury. Josh Scobee will serve as the Steelers kicker and could be a fantasy option.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant's appeal denied

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:44:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant's appeal of his suspension has been denied, and he will sit out the first four games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's fantasy value will take a bit because of the suspension, but he will still be valuable when he returns to the field. Bryant could be a middle-round option in drafts because of his potential.

Steelers | Josh Scobee acquired by Steelers

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 07:38:00 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars PK Josh Scobee was acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Scobee will be a midrange kicker to select if he opens the season as the starter. Garrett Hartley (hamstring) was injured over the weekend, and this move is probably not a good sign for his roster spot security.

Steelers | Garrett Hartley suffers injury

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:04:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Garrett Hartley (hamstring) suffered an apparent hamstring injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

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.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:55:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QBs Michael Vick and Landry Jones both took second-team snaps during warmups Saturday, Aug. 29.

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

Steelers | Michael Vick should play

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:54:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick is expected to play Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Buffalo Bills. Vick was signed just four days ago.

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.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey may be No. 3 WR

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:38:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey could be the No. 3 wide receiver if WR Martavis Bryant has to sit out the first four weeks of the regular season.

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.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant failed tests

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:10:55 -0700

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.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton ready for breakout?

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:35:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton could be primed for a breakout season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

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.

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:22:56 -0700

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.
