Fantasy Tip: Wheaton will compete for the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp but should see solid playing time even if he loses the job. Wheaton could be a late-round option in most leagues with the potential be more valuable as the season goes on.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is a special talent, but that talent could be on the sideline for three games if Bell's three-game suspension isn't reduced. He should still be one of the first running backs off the board in fantasy drafts even if the suspension is upheld.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams said he "absolutely" received enough work as the backup during the first day of training camp Sunday, July 26, and he expects to be ready to start Week 1 if RB Le'Veon Bell is suspended.
Fantasy Tip: Bell is still waiting to appeal his suspension, but Williams will likely have to start for at least a couple of games. He will have short-term value at FantasyScore while Bell is sidelined, and in seasonal leagues, Bell owners should try to grab Williams as an insurance policy.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still waiting to have his appeal of a three-game suspension, but even if he misses three games, he should still provide RB1 value as the workhorse back in Pittsburgh's powerful offense.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger posted some of the best numbers of his career last season with 4,952 passing yards and 32 touchdowns over 16 regular season games. Roethlisberger will have all of his offensive weapons back and could be a No. 1 quarterback in many fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown ended speculation that he may hold out when he showed up for the first day of training camp Saturday, July 25. "Hold outs never go well," said Brown. "Just look at history. It always ends badly. It wouldn't be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces."
Fantasy Tip: Brown should be one of the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts, and he could be the No. 1 overall receiver in points-per-reception leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant played an average of just 29% of offensive snaps in 2014, but he is expected to serve as the primary No. 2 receiver on the outside in 2015 with WR Markus Wheaton moving to more of a slot role.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant found the end zone eight times in just 10 games, and a full season in a bigger role gives him an enormous ceiling. There is still some risk involved with taking a relatively unproven player, but he is well worth the gamble as a WR3.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams is not receiving any first-team reps despite RB Le'Veon Bell facing a three-game suspension, head coach Mike Tomlin said. Tomlin also said he is challenging Williams in ways that are uncomfortable for a 10-year veteran.
Fantasy Tip: It seems pretty clear that Williams is only going to have a worthwhile role in the offense while Bell is suspended or if he misses time for another reason. If you draft Bell, consider adding Williams as an insurance policy.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to be ready for training camp, but he still hasn't had his appeal of a three-game suspension heard yet. Bell is still a legit RB1, but missing three games makes him drop a tier.

Fantasy Tip: It's certainly taking a while for the wheels to roll regardin Bell's case. This situation will need to be monitored throughout training camp and the preseason. For now, he should still be viewed as a RB1 even though he may be playing 13 games.
