Steelers | Martavis Bryant to be reinstated soon?

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 14:44:35 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant could be reinstated in as soon as two weeks "if the [NFL] does not drag its feet", according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette. Bryant applied for reinstatement in January after serving a one-year suspension for his second violation of failing drug tests.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has the size, speed and talent to be a successful professional wide receiver. His off-field issues remain a big concern, however. Even if/when Bryant is reinstated, it could take some time before he becomes fully acclimated again to the NFL. Drafting him as a mid- to late-round option is ideal, but be prepared to stash him.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton may not return

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 14:35:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR Markus Wheaton has been shown little interest as far as being re-signed, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Fantasy Tip: One can understand the lack of excitement in the possibility of bringing back Wheaton. He only played in three games in what was supposed to be a breakout year. He's only worth a late-round flier wherever he lands.

Steelers | Five-year deal for Antonio Brown

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:55:07 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's new deal is five years in length. As stated earlier, the deal is worth more than $15 million.

Fantasy Tip: There's no denying Brown's elite status. He should arguably be the first receiver taken in fantasy drafts, and possibly the first player. He has back-to-back seasons of at least 100 catches, so give him added value in PPR formats.

Steelers | Antonio Brown agrees to big deal

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:36:40 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown reached an agreement to become the NFL's highest paid wide receiver Monday, Feb. 27, according to a source. Brown will earn more than $15 million per year.

Fantasy Tip: Brown deserves to be the highest paid receiver in the NFL because he's the best all-around receiver in the NFL. Not only that, he's the best receiver for fantasy football. Brown is an early-first round consideration once again this year, with added value in PPR leagues.

Steelers | More on Le'Veon Bell's franchise tag

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:17:35 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell was given the exclusive franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27, meaning he cannot negotiate with other teams. The tag will earn Bell at least $12 million for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: As has been stated previously, Bell should be one of the first players taken in fantasy drafts in 2017 as long as he is healthy. The Steelers could rely on him even more if they feel Ben Roethlisberger is regressing.

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 13:01:11 -0800

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 11:11:03 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: There's no way the Steelers are going to let their star running back leave Pittsburgh. Look for Bell to play this year under the tag while both sides hammer out a long-term deal. Bell should be one of the first three to five players taken in fantasy drafts as long as he's healthy.

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:47:30 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell has not made much progress in contract talks with the Steelers and likely will receive the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement before the deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Bell should be with the Steelers for at least one more year and should continue to be a focal point in their offense. He likely will be a top five pick in all fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.

Steelers | No surgery for Le'Veon Bell

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:43:25 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) is not scheduled to undergo groin surgery at this time even though he met with doctors after the season, according to a source. Bell probably would have had surgery by now if it was necessary.

Fantasy Tip: Bell likely will rehab the injury during the offseason and could be limited during workouts but should be fine for training camp. He probably will receive the franchise tag from the Steelers or sign a long-term contract. He continues to be one of the best running backs in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.
