Steelers | Ladarius Green could see 30 to 40 snaps

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 15:32:16 -0800

Steelers TE Ladarius Green played 35 snaps in Week 13 after totaling 34 in his first three weeks back. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Green can expect 30 to 40 snaps going forward because of the Steelers' usage of run-heavy sets.

Fantasy Tip: Green was one of the more pleasant surprises of Week 13, finishing with six catches on 11 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown. There's plenty of reason to believe he's capable of posting similar numbers going forward, as he is a great downfield threat for a tight end and has Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown to keep defenders occupied. With 30 to 40 snaps weekly, Green should be considered a TE1.

Steelers | Chris Boswell a game-time decision

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 10:25:29 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Chris Boswell (abdomen) will work out before the team's Week 14 game to see if he will be able to play. PK Randy Bullock will handle the kicking duties again if Boswell is unable to play.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can check on the inactive list to see which kicker will be in uniform for Week 14. The Steelers are expected to deal with some inclement weather during the game, so owners should avoid both players this week.

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 17:16:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:44:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The team probably was taking things easy with Roethisberger and should be ready to play in Week 14. He has thrown eight touchdowns and one interception over the last four games but does not play as well when he is on the road. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | DHB eyeing return to practice this week

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:34:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) may be able to return to practice this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: DHB is a field-stretcher and valuable special-teamer when healthy but offers virtually nothing in fantasy, outside of the occasional and unpredictable huge blow-up game. He can be left on waivers whenever he is cleared to return.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams could practice soon

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:26:45 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) may be able to return to practice this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has been out since undergoing knee surgery after Week 9. The 33-year-old doesn't hold much fantasy value at the moment with Le'Veon Bell healthy and hogging all the touches out of the backfield, but he is one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football and should be owned by forward-thinking Bell owners.

Steelers | Antonio Brown posts 54 yards, TD

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 23:02:31 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown racked up six receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was outshined by his friend Antonio Brown, but his team also came away with the win and Brown visited the end zone. He will face a tough pass defense in Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills, but remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.
