  Steelers | Ladarius Green could get 30 to 40 snaps    Sat Dec 10, 06:32 PM

Steelers TE Ladarius Green played 35 snaps in Week 13 after totaling 34 in his first three weeks back. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Green can expect 30 to 40 snaps going forward because of the Steelers' usage of run-heavy sets.

Footballguys view: Green could continue to be a big part of the Steelers offense. He had a breakout game last week, and we like him as a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners in Week 14.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green misses practice    Thu Dec 8, 08:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Next to Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell, Green seems to be Ben Roethlisberger's favorite target. He blew the Giants up last week, and we expect TE1 numbers against Buffalo as well.

  Steelers | Full practice for Ben Roethlisberger    Thu Dec 8, 08:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: The Bills generate a lot of sacks, but they were stonewalled by the Raiders offensive line last week, and the Steelers line is as tough a nut to crack. That should give Roethlisberger plenty of time to throw the ball and produce Qb1 numbers.

  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams could practice soon    Tue Dec 6, 12:26 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) may be able to return to practice this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Williams will be an important handcuff to Le'Veon Bell during the fantasy playoffs. He's coming back from a knee scope and should be eased back into action.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be shadowed by New York Giants CB Janoris Jenkins in Week 13.

  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams could return Week 13    Tue Nov 29, 12:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) is 'perking up' and appears to be on track to return Week 13 against the New York Giants after undergoing minor knee surgery about three weeks ago, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: If Williams is out there, he's a valuable handcuff to grab off the waiver wire for Le'Veon Bell fantasy owners. If anything happened to Bell, Williams would post RB1 numbers during the fantasy playoffs which start Week 14 in most leagues.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green making solid progress    Tue Nov 29, 12:49 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green should expect increased reps moving forward and has the coaching staff 'excited' about potential contributions, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Go ahead and grab Green off the waiver wire if he's available. We're also excited about his potential...always have been, especially in this offense. As the fantasy playoffs near, Green is the type of player who could help you win and move on in the tournament.

  Steelers | Dreamius Smith added to Steelers    Mon Nov 28, 08:54 AM

Free-agent RB Dreamius Smith (Chargers) was signed to the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad Monday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Smith played his college ball at West Virginia and didn't do much during his time with the Mountaineers. He did get noticed at his Pro Day by running 4.50/4.52 with a 35-inch vertical and recording a 10-foot-2 broad jump. Smith lacks elusiveness or creativity as a runner, but he's a plus athlete who runs hard in a straight line.

  Steelers | Sammie Coates struggling    Sat Nov 26, 05:01 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates has not caught any of the last 11 targets thrown to him.

Footballguys view: That sums up Coates and his game. His fast and can take the top off the defense, but he has to catch passes over his shoulder or he's simply not catching the balls thrown his way. Coates has always had concentration/drop problems dating back to his days in college at Auburn. Things are no different now that he's been in the pros for a bit.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green on the upswing?    Sat Nov 26, 01:57 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green played only 14-of-54 snaps in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts after getting 20 total snaps in his first two weeks back from injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin sounded as if he's ready to see his level of participation increase.

Footballguys view: Green is in an amazing offense, and his physical talent has always been elite. However, he's never really played up to that potential in the pros. We'll stash him in deeper leagues hoping for a breakout, but we're not banking on it to happen.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Karlos Williams has been suspended for his next 10 games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green will not be under any snap restrictions in Week 12, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who said Green would be a 'full go' against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: We've got Green as a 'what the heck' flex this week against the Colts on Thanksgiving. The Steelers offense should be able to put up big numbers against a banged up (and really not that talented) Colts defense. It will be interesting to see who emerges in the passing game behind superstar WR Antonio Brown.
