Pittsburgh Steelers CB Senquez Golson (foot) said Tuesday, Aug. 23, that he is looking to return sometime between late October and late November. He is in a walking boot now, as he had surgery for a Lisfranc injury. Three weeks ago he was told his timetable if 10 weeks minimum for recovery.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger missed the first two preseason games and probably will see limited playing time against the Saints. He will be without some of his targets this season because of suspensions, but he could still be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Green is still on the PUP list because of an ankle injury, but maybe his recurring headaches aren't as severe as originally believed. Either way, his status will need to be monitored leading up to the regular season, especially since he'll need to be taken off the PUP list before the season starts if he wants to play. If he is not ready, then Jesse James becomes a nice sleeper option as he should become the starting tight end in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers caught four passes for 39 yards in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18. He has been performing well as a slot receiver and has shown a quick first step that allows him navigate the middle of the field.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones is expected to keep the No. 2 quarterback job because he had a solid training camp and there are not many options available in free agency. Jones has thrown for 166 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in two preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: Bell will now be eligible to play in Week 4, which will help his fantasy value. He should be considered a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues and will be selected in one of the first two or three rounds.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James would start if TE Ladarius Green (concussion, ankle) is not ready by the start of the season. James has developed a nice red-zone rapport with QB Ben Roethlisberger, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.
Fantasy Tip: James is becoming a pretty sneaky option at the tight end position. He can be had for nothing and could start at least half of the regular season depending on Green's status. As of now, James can probably even be claimed off waivers in most leagues while he's still under the radar.

Fantasy Tip: Green's situation is murky at best right now. He could either retire, be cut, start the season on IR or be healthy enough by Week 1. Green is not totally undraftable, of course, but one should strongly consider taking Jesse James in a later round as a handcuff to Green.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison has agreed to talk with the NFL regarding the allegations that they received performance-enhancing drugs, according to sources. Harrison is scheduled to meet with the NFL Monday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: It would be nice to know something sooner than later, but the smart bet is he will not win the appeal, and you should downgrade him to about Round 3 or Round 4 in PPR drafts.
