  Steelers | James Conner struggles in road win    Sun Nov 18, 08:21 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner ran nine times for just 25 yards in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added six grabs for 24 yards.

Footballguys view: Conner dropped the game-winning score and only contributed to fantasy teams because he got a lot of dumpoffs with the downfield passing game having problems for a long stretch of the game. He's still an RB1, but with lower expectations heading to a matchup against Denver.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger was dreadful for three quarters, but did enough to win a hard-fought road game against a team that ended their 2017. He proved that he's matchup and venue proof heading in to face another strong defense on the road in Denver.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is headed toward free agency, and several league sources see him landing with the New York Jets in the offseason. 'I think it's a foregone conclusion,' one Steelers source said.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the need and the cap room. They had a strong running game at times earlier this season, and Bell would also become one of their primary receivers.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to report    Sat Nov 10, 09:23 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to report by the deadline Tuesday, Nov. 13, according to multiple sources, which would make him ineligible to play for the remainder of the season.

  Steelers | James Conner in concussion protocol    Fri Nov 9, 01:15 AM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (concussion) has been placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Conner has three extra days to get cleared before the Week 11 tilt with the Jaguars. LeVeon Bell could be back, but we'll still project Conner as the lead back until we see Bell is in football shape and ready to handle a starter's load. The most likely outcome here is a something close to a 50/50 committee.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to report    Fri Nov 9, 12:03 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to report to the team next week, according to team president Art Rooney II.

Footballguys view: James Conner is dealing with a concussion although he'll have extra time to clear protocol. The team should ease Bell in against the Jaguars and he's unlikely to take over his old role. We'll also exercise a little caution acting on this news with the number of false starts we've had in the Bell story this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught all six of his targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, and he has scored in eight of his nine games this season.

Footballguys view: Brown beat rookie Donte Jackson with a veteran disruption that the refs didn't catch to fuel his nice fantasy evening. We'll lower expectations against Jalen Ramsey next week but still start Brown.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald finds end zone    Thu Nov 8, 11:15 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald caught all four of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

Footballguys view: McDonald looked like a bull in a china shop again and made a nice finesse play at the back of the end zone on his touchdown. He'll be a good streamer in a matchup he flourished against in the playoffs last year when the Steelers go to Jacksonville next week.

  Steelers | Long score for JuJu Smith-Schuster     Thu Nov 8, 11:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught three of his five targets for 90 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown, and added a 13-yard run in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster's night was made on the first play by the Steelers offense. He might duck AJ Bouye next week and lead the team in targets when they go to Jacksonville.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of his 25 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

  Steelers | More on Le'Veon Bell situation    Thu Nov 8, 11:41 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell would be franchise tagged at the quarterback level, around $25 million in 2019, not at the lower number he was tagged at in 2018, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. 'I've been told by both league and team sources that neither the NFL nor the Steelers have any plan to argue that the second tag should carry over, should Bell not play this year,' NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reported. 'They are all in agreement that any potential tag would be the third (or the transition).'

Footballguys view: It sure feels like both sides are trying to find a way out while saving face and not disrupting their plans. James Conner teams should be elated at this news although Bell is in Pittsburgh, so it's hard to say what will happen next. Conner will likely remain fantasy relevant no matter what happens with Bell.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may not report after all?    Tue Nov 6, 08:08 PM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is reportedly contemplating whether or not he will show up by the Nov. 13 franchise tag deadline based on newly learned information from the collective bargaining agreement that would allow him to be deemed a third-year franchise player in 2019 rather than revert to the second year, even if he doesn't report.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (finger, coaches' decision) was held out of practice Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: The Steelers play on Thursday night at home against the Carolina Panthers. Giving Roethlisberger as much rest as possible is always a great idea. He should play in Week 10 and is a QB1 for Fantasy GMs anytime he's out there.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown limited Tuesday    Tue Nov 6, 05:02 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (coaches' decision) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have a short week as they play against the Panthers on Thursday night. They'll limit Brown on Tuesday and we think he might actually be limited Wednesday too. Either way, Brown is on track to play and locked into Fantasy GMs lineups as a WR1.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hints at possible return    Tue Nov 6, 12:43 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tweeted 'Farewell Miami' on Monday, possibly indicating he's heading north to report and end his season-long holdout from the team.

Footballguys view: Who in the world knows when Bell will show up...it's really anybody's guess. Bell needs to report by Nov. 13 to make sure he accrues enough service time to reach free agency in March. He's got less than a week to show up without greater consequences.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has not reestablished contact with the team as of Monday, Nov. 5 - leaving him eight days to report before he becomes ineligible to play for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: Who in the world knows what Bell is going to do. He was supposed to report weeks ago according to some reports and that is long in the past. Now, he's got to report over the next week or so in order to earn an accrued season and hit free agency in 2019. Stay tuned.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald quiet in Week 9    Sun Nov 4, 05:00 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald caught three passes for 25 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9.
