Pittsburgh Steelers news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:34:42 -0800
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.

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.

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.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 29 times for 118 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants, and he added six catches for 64 yards on seven targets. He has three straight 100-yard rushing performances for the first time in his career.
Fantasy Tip: Bell continues to carry fantasy owners down the stretch and into the playoffs. He will look for another big stat line in Week 14 against a Buffalo Bills rush defense which allowed a pair of rushing scores to Latavius Murray of the Raiders.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green posted six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. "I'm not close to where I thought I would be, but I'm getting closer," Green said Sunday, Dec. 4. "I'm building a little more confidence every game."
Fantasy Tip: Green was targeted 11 times, and it was a combination of Green getting better in the offense, healthier and the Giants not paying much mind to opposing tight ends. He is worth adding in all fantasy leagues in Week 14, especially if you continue to search for a replacement for someone like Rob Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: Randy Bullock will serve as the kicker for the Steelers this week, but owners in all leagues should be able to find a better option to use.

Free-agent PK Randy Bullock (Giants) signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, Dec. 3, to serve as insurance in case PK Chris Boswell (abdomen) is forced to miss Week 13 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Tip: Boswell has been a suspect fantasy choice much of the season, and there is a reason Bullock has been surfing the waiver wire for the last three months. There is little reason to chance it with only two teams on bye weeks.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and RB Le'Veon Bell were both punished by the National Football League for their role in a joint touchdown celebration in Week 12. Brown was fined $24,309 and Bell was fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct following one of Brown's three touchdowns versus the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Tip: Brown leads the league with 10 touchdown receptions and should be considered a WR1 in all fantasy formats. Bell has 266 rushing yards and has reached the end zone in each of his last three games, which also makes him worthy of being started in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Jenkins is talented, but he's by no means a big threat to AB. Brown is one of the best options at receiver in fantasy on a weekly basis.
