Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are first and second in maximum speed, hitting 22.30 and 21.76 mph, respectively, with the ball in their hands this year. Bryant had three of the eight fastest speeds by a ball carrier with the ball in his hands in Week 10. Brown and Bryant combined for 317 yards and three touchdowns in Week 10 and drew 141 yards worth of pass interference penalties by the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: We all know that Brown is an elite fantasy receiver and is a must-start every week. Bryant is gaining recognition, too, for his consistent big-play abilities. He's more valuable in standard leagues, but with Ben Roethlisberger back under center, Bryant is a force to be reckoned with in PPR leagues as well.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) stat line was probably saved in Week 10 with Ben Roethlisberger having to come in early to replace the injured Landry Jones. Pittsburgh has a bye this weekend, but with Big Ben likely back under center for the stretch run, Brown remains an elite fantasy weapon every week.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones (ankle) is dealing with a severe low-ankle sprain. QB Michael Vick is expected to serve as the backup behind QB Ben Roethlisberger following the Steelers' bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has hauled in 27 passes over the past two games, and as long as Ben Roethlisberger is under center, Brown is a must-start receiver at FantasyScore.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 16:21:38 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been a touchdown machine since returning from suspension, catching five in five games. He offers intriguing upside for the price at FantasyScore thanks to his big-play ability.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot) came off the bench to replace QB Landry Jones (leg) and finished with 379 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 30-9 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: For someone who wasn't supposed to play, Roethlisberger ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) showed no signs of being slowed by his foot injury. Assuming the Steelers elect to start him going forward, don't hesitate to use him at FantasyScore.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones (ankle) returned to the sideline after being carted off with an ankle injury. QB Ben Roethlisberger remained in the game as the starting quarterback, however.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has been playing well since Jones left the game, but he isn't 100% himself. Jones' injury doesn't seem to be too serious, but stay tuned for an update.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 10:22:46 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Ben Roethlisberger will enter the game even though he is still dealing with his foot injury. The Steelers will have a bye in Week 11, and Roethlisberger should be the starter if he does not suffer a setback.

Fantasy Tip: It's somewhat surprising to see Roethlisberger ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) active, with the Steelers having a bye next week. Jones ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) warrants consideration as a FantasyScore sleeper pick against the Browns.
