Steelers | Le'Veon Bell made historic mark

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:11:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's 157.0 yards from scrimmage per game in 2016 were third most ever for a running back in one season.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers were wise and fed Bell the ball throughout his 12 games. Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott each deserve to be the first running back taken in fantasy drafts, but Bell and Johnson have more value in PPR formats.

Steelers | Antonio Brown in rare company

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:01:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is one of only two receivers in NFL history to achieve four consecutive seasons of at least 100 catches. Former Indianapolis Colts Marvin Harrison is the other.

Fantasy Tip: Not much can be said about Brown's accolades that haven't already been said. He's the best receiver in the league and he proves it year after year. His high volume of catches makes him more valuable in PPR leagues, but he should be the first receiver taken in both PPR and standard leagues.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant applies for reinstatement

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:12:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant applied for reinstatement Tuesday, Jan. 17, according to a source. Bryant will not be able to return for the playoffs, but he could return for the 2017 regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's size, speed and deep-play ability would give the Steelers yet another offensive weapon. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell will still be the focal points of Pittsburgh's offense if Bryant is reinstated, but Bryant should not be overlooked. He tallied 765 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 despite playing in just 11 games.

Steelers | James Harrison battling a pair of ailments

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:49:23 -0800

Steelers | Ladarius Green struggling to get back

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:37:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been sidelined since Week 15, although Tomlin said he had a chance to play in the Divisional Round before ultimately being ruled out. Although Jesse James had a fine game last week, the Steelers could really use all hands on deck in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots after failing to score a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Owners should consider him highly questionable at best.

Steelers | Antonio Brown could be fined

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 13:37:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may be fined for violating the NFL's social media policy for his post-game live stream in the Steelers' locker room. League policy prohibits players from posting messages on social media 90 minutes before kickoff through post-game interviews.

Fantasy Tip: Other than a possible fine, don't expect harsh repercussions from Brown's post-game gaffe. He's the best receiver in the NFL and should be the first receiver taken in fantasy drafts next season, particularly in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Good day for Jesse James

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:32:30 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had five catches for 83 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: With Pittsburgh's lack of receiving depth (Antonio Brown and Eli Rogers), James has emerged as a quality pass-catching candidate. Assuming he still is in the Steelers' plans for 2017, James can be thought of as a low-end TE1 option in 2017 drafts.

Steelers | Antonio Brown over 100 yards

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:20:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught six of his 11 targeted passes for 108 yards, including a long catch of 52 yards, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is quickly becoming the linchpin of the Steelers' receiving game and is a solid WR1 as long as Ben Roethlisberger remains healthy at quarterback.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has serviceable outing

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:36:57 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception and was 20 of 31 for 224 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger ranks as a QB2 mostly because of his injury history, but he will get a shot at elite status again when he faces the New England Patriots in next week's AFC championship game. Roethlisberger wasn't playing earlier this season when Pittsburgh lost to New England in the regular season.

Steelers | Big night for Le'Veon Bell

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:11:48 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards, with no touchdowns, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Yardage leagues would have gained many points from Bell's performance, but don't let that discourage you from including Bell among RB1 or RB2 selections for next season. Assuming Bell keeps his nose clean and stays away from substances, he should be setting himself up well for a good payday and a strong 2017.

Steelers | NFL playoff record for Chris Boswell

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:03:11 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers K Chris Boswell booted six field goals Sunday, Jan. 15, during the team's 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He set an NFL playoff record. The previous record of five was set by a long list of kickers, including Matt Bahr, Steve Christie, John Kasay, and Adam Vinatieri.

Fantasy Tip: Considering the weather conditions were not the best in this game, with rain and dreary conditions, this is a pretty good accomplishment. Look for Boswell to be among the PK1 selections in fantasy drafts next year.

Steelers | Antonio Brown may receive lucrative deal

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 10:08:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may receive a contract extension this offseason that would make him the highest paid receiver in the NFL. The deal could pay him more than the $15 million that Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green receives per season.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has been underpaid over the last few seasons but should receive a lucrative extension at some point this offseason. He has become one of the best receivers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season.
