Pittsburgh Steelers CB Cortez Allen will be benched in favor of CB Brice McCain in Week 7 against the Houston Texans Monday night. It's the second time in as many years that Allen has been benched for poor play. "He's still basically a young player," defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said. "He's at a difficult position. Sometimes, there are ups and downs out there. I have great confidence that he'll fight himself through this and be a very strong player."

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be accepted into a probation program in his case for marijuana possession and driving under the influence charges, according to his attorney. Bell likely would serve one year of probation and could have his arrest record expunged.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bell will face any punishment from the NFL for his arrest, but Bell will continue to play for now. Bell has been a consistent producer for owners this season and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $7,400.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, Oct. 15, on marijuana possession and driving under the influence chargers. That means he and his attorney acknowledge police have enough evidence for the charges to go to Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, where Bell must either plead to all or some of the charges or stand trial.
Fantasy Tip: Bell has no chance at facing a suspension this season, as has been reported since the Aug. 20 arrest. Bell ($7,400; 14.8% of your cap) continues to be a solid weekly choice at RB1 on FantasyScore.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 365 yards with a touchdown in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, the team's Week 6 opponent. Over his past eight starts against the Browns, Roethlisberger has thrown two or more touchdown passes. However, in 19 career starts, he has eclipsed 281 yards just twice.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is a solid FantasyScore option at $7600 (or 15.2 percent of the cap) based upon his Week 1 performance against the Browns, but not so much for his career trends.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He punished he Browns for 116 yards on five receptions with a touchdown in Week 1, and he has 87 or more receiving yards in five of his past six games against Cleveland, scoring four times in those six outings.
Fantasy Tip: Even at $8000 (or 16 percent of the salary cap), Brown is a solid play in FantasyScore leagues against Pittsburgh's AFC North rivals.
