2017 Week 14 vs BAL (10 / 6 / 33 / 0 rec - 9.3 points, $0)
Martavis Bryant had a disappointing performance with six receptions for 33 yards. Bryant struggled filling in for the suspended JuJu Smith-Schuster with kickoff return duties as he put the offensive in negative starting positions on multiple occasions.
2017 Week 13 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec - 8 points, $0)
Bryant had the second-most targets on the team, six, against Cincinnati. Bryant had opportunities for a bigger performance, including a kickoff return for a touchdown called back by penalty, deep defensive pass interference penalty, and a 50/50 target which he could not win in the air. Bryant's lone reception of note came on a skinny post, fueling Pittsburgh into game-winning field goal range in the closing minute.
2017 Week 12 vs GB (6 / 4 / 40 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush - 14.1 points, $0)
With JuJu Smith-Schuster out, Bryant saw a lot more work. He was targeted several times in the end zone, including once for a 17-yard touchdown. On the play, Bryant got behind the defender on a fade route and Ben Roethlisberger dropped the ball perfectly in his hands for a score. He also drew a pass-interference penalty in the end zone on another play. Overall, it was one of his better games, though whether that will be a sign of things to come or a product of Smith-Schuster being out is hard to say
2017 Week 11 vs TEN (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec - 5 points, $4000)
Martavis Bryant had two receptions for 30 yards. Mid second quarter, Bryant had a 25-yard reception overturned as he was flagged for an offensive pass interference penalty due to pushing off his defender.

2017 Week 10 vs IND (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush - 8.3 points, $3900)

The wide receiver scored on a two-point conversion to tie the game early in the fourth quarter. On the play, Bryant ran a crossing-route and beat the coverage for the two-point conversion. With less than a minute left in the fourth quarter on third and four, Bryant ran a crossing-route for a 19-yard reception. On the play, Bryant did a fabulous job picking up yards after the reception and getting out of bounds. This play helped to set up the Steelers game-winning field goal.
2017 Week 7 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush - 1.5 points, $4300)
Martavis Bryant was once again an afterthought playing only 52% of the snaps and seeing two targets. On the first play from scrimmage, Bryant ran a reverse for a two-yard gain. Late 2nd quarter, Bryant ran a slant for a three-yard reception before being tackled on the Bengals four-yard line. Late 3rd quarter, Bryant was targeted on a deep pass, but he was unable to locate the football.
2017 Week 6 vs KC (3 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec - 4.7 points, $4700)
Martavis Bryant was once again an afterthought with only two receptions for 27 yards. Early second quarter, Bryant ran a quick slant for a 20-yard reception. The big news came after the game as Ian Rapoport reported that Bryant is unhappy and has requested a trade.
2017 Week 5 vs JAX (8 / 5 / 21 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush - 8.4 points, $5000)
Martavis Bryant was added to the injury report late in the week with an illness. He played but was relegated to screen passes and short underneath crossing-routes. Ben Roethlisberger has been unable to connect with Bryant on long pass attempts yet this season.
2017 Week 4 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec - 7.8 points, $5400)
Martavis Bryant was a secondary option as the Steelers focused on the running game. Three of his four receptions came on a two-minute drive late in the second quarter. First, Bryant caught a short five-yard reception. Then on a third and six, Bryant ran a crossing-route for a 24-yard reception. He followed that up on the next play with a 19-yard reception. Mid fourth quarter on a third and three, Bryant got behind the defense and had a chance for a touchdown but was overthrown by Ben Roethlisberger.
2017 Week 3 vs CHI (8 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec - 5 points, $5700)
Martavis Bryant had a disappointing afternoon as he was targeted eight times but finished with only 2 receptions for 30 yards. He was targeted on multiple deep routes but was outplayed by the Bears secondary. On the first play from scrimmage, he had a great opportunity as he got behind the defense while running a go-route but the ball fell incomplete as it tipped off his fingertips. If he secures this pass it would have been a 75-yard touchdown reception and perhaps a completely different game result.
2017 Week 2 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 91 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush - 18.8 points, $5500)
Martavis Bryant led the Steelers wide receivers with 91 yards and a touchdown late in the first quarter. On the play, Bryant ran a quick slant route and caught the football while running in stride.

He once again displayed his elite speed getting behind the defense for a 51-yard reception on the next play.
2017 Week 1 vs CLE (6 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec - 3.4 points, $6000)
Martavis Bryant struggled early dropping an easy pass and tipping another pass that almost resulted in an interception. Mid 2nd quarter, Bryant caught a quick pass but the Browns defense was there to meet him and the play resulted in no gain. Mid 3rd quarter, Bryant ran a comeback-route for a 14-yard reception.
