Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:53:17 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (elbow) will undergo a procedure for an elbow infection that will cause him to miss the Hall of Fame Game Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Minnesota Vikings. He is expected to be sidelined for seven to 10 days because of an infection caused by an ingrown hair.
Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, this does not appear to be a serious injury for Bryant. His role in the Pittsburgh offense should grow this season and he's worth taking a gamble on as a WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has still been drafted pretty high, but his value increases with the extra game he gains via this reduction. Despite the fact that he'll only be playing in 14 games, barring an injury, he could easily still finish as a RB1, if not the top running back in PPR games. DeAngelo Williams is expected to start the first two games of the season, so taking him late in drafts is a worthwhile goal.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams isn't sure how often he'll be used in training camp or in the first few games of the season yet. RB Le'Veon Bell's fate is tied to his three-game suspension that lies in limbo. Williams said he'll be ready for whatever he's asked to do.
Fantasy Tip: Williams is expected to be the Steelers' starting running back for at least the first game of the season. Whatever happens after that is yet to be decided. He could be a useful handcuff selection for those who draft Bell.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell doesn't know yet how many games he'll be missing this season due to an impending suspension. Bell is focused on training camp and being a better teammate, though. He said he's going to give it his all every time he's on the practice field. Bell also said he might be given a lighter load in training camp this time around.
Fantasy Tip: Bell could end up being suspended somewhere between one and three games. Whether his suspension is reduced or upheld, he should still be regarded as a RB1. If his suspension is reduced, he should still be an early first-round pick. If he still ends up serving a three-game suspension, he's more of a late first-round pick to early second-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: Bell's fantasy stock would firmly be in the top half of the first round of most drafts if a game was knocked off his three-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton will compete for the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp but should see solid playing time even if he loses the job. Wheaton could be a late-round option in most leagues with the potential be more valuable as the season goes on.
