Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) has not been cleared to kick at this point since he is still recovering from the torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn meniscus he suffered during the preseason. Suisham said he believes he has a good chance to be the kicker next season if he is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Suisham should receive clearance to kick at some point this offseason and will have to compete with Chris Boswell if he wants the kicking job back. Suisham may be a candidate to be released since he makes around $2 million more than Boswell does. Whoever wins the kicking job should be a solid fantasy option because of the team's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger dealt with multiple injuries this season but still posted solid numbers for fantasy owners. He should have most of his weapons back next season and will be a starting quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
