  Steelers | Pittsburgh's Week 15 injury report    Fri Dec 15, 04:53 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 15. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) and CB Joe Haden (fibula) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. CB Coty Sensabaugh (shoulder) fully participated in practice but is listed as questionable. WR Martavis Bryant (non-injury), LB Tyler Matakevich (shoulder), C Maurkice Pouncey (hip) and DE Stephon Tuitt (illness) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Jesse James becomes a much better streaming tight end with McDonald out. Check on Smith-Schuster's status, if he can't go, Martavis Bryant becomes a better play. The Patriots could target Haden if he returns.

  Steelers | Full practice for Martavis Bryant    Thu Dec 14, 05:00 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: While he's not being punished and not going to miss the game, Bryant isn't a trustworthy play this weekend. JuJu Smith-Schuster is also back, all of which spells a big decrease in targets from the 10 he got last weekend. He's no more than a WR5.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster limited    Thu Dec 14, 04:52 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: We'd like this matchup a little more if the Patriots didn't always seem to have the Steelers' number. That said, Smith-Schuster should be effective in his return from suspension, and we see him as a borderline WR3/WR4 option.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant expected back Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 01:37 AM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a personal/family situation and will be back with the club on Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Bryant was pretty bad and clearly not on the same page as Ben Roethlisberger against Baltimore. With JuJu Smith-Schuster back from suspension, he is likely to see his targets slip down again. Start him as no more than a WR6.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown misses practice    Thu Dec 7, 04:25 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: We suspect this is just a rest day, and Brown should be a great WR1 against Baltimore this weekend. It's worth keeping an eye on his status, but we think he will practice on Friday and be ready to go on Sunday.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown makes NFL history    Thu Dec 7, 12:08 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown set an NFL record for most receptions (596) and receiving yards (7,611) over a five-year span, doing so in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Each record was previously held by retired WR Marvin Harrison.

Footballguys view: Brown has been the most consistent of fantasy producing wide receivers this season, so his GMs know what he brings to the table. Even when Ben Roethlisberger has an off night, Brown puts points up. You never, ever have him out of your lineup.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell seeing incredible usage    Tue Dec 5, 02:59 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has been on the field for more than 91% of the Steelers' offensive plays this year. That's 11% more than the next highest running back.

Footballguys view: Bell has had over 100 all-purpose yards (rushing, receiving) in seven straight games. Expect the superstar RB to continue getting a featured role (and then some) as the Steelers have a huge game at home against the Ravens in Week 14.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster suspended one game    Tue Dec 5, 01:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been suspended for Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens for his illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Monday night's game between the Steelers and the Bengals got out of hand, so the league is stepping in to squelch this sort of behavior. Smith-Schuster blasted Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict then stood over him and taunted him. The league is suspending the rookie WR for the hit and for the taunting. There will be an appeal, but the one-game ban may stand and that gives Martavis Bryant more fantasy value in Week 14 against the Ravens.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Brown is heading in the right direction. If Brown does not play, that would certainly boost the fantasy value of guys like JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant.
