Game Recaps

2017 Week 1 vs CLE (6 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

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.

2017 Week 2 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 91 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

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 cut across the middle of the field while outrunning the Vikings defense for the 27-yard touchdown reception. Mid third quarter on a 3rd and 12, Bryant ran a slant route for a 13-yard reception.

2017 Week 3 vs CHI (8 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)

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 4 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)

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.

2014 Week 7 vs HOU (5 / 2 / 40 / 1 rec)

2014 Fourth-round pick, Martavis Bryant made his season-debut in Week 7. In desperate need of a redzone threat, the Steelers gave Bryant about 50% of Markus Wheaton's snaps. Early in the first quarter, Bryant was just overthrown on fly route that, if better placed, could have resulted in a touchdown. Roethlisberger did not, however, miss Bryant on his next opportunity during the 2-minute drill in the second quarter; Bryant ran past his defender, got separation, and Roethlisberger hit him in stride for a 35-yard touchdown strike in the back of the endzone.

2014 Week 8 vs IND (7 / 5 / 83 / 2 rec)

After starting his NFL career with a touchdown the week prior, Bryant came out of the gate running against the Colts. Bryant caught 2 passes in the Steelers' first drive and would be heavily-targeted thereafter. Bryant collected 5 receptions on 7 targets and managed to convert 2 of those receptions into touchdowns. The first touchdown came in the redzone when Bryant lined up on the left side of the field, cut to the outside, and ran his route to the inside; Roethlisberger found him in the endzone for a quick 6-yard strike. Touchdown #2 came in the 3rd quarter on a fade route, where Bryant reached over his defender and pulled in the catch in a total mismatch of size and talent. In the 2nd quarter, Bryant displayed his speed and athleticism on a 52-yard over-the-shoulder catch that was the longest play of the season (from scrimmage) for the Steelers. Bryant is stretching the field for the Steelers, which is opening up underneath routes for guys like Antonio Brown and Heath Miller; both of those receivers had excellent statistical performances on this day. If Bryant continues to impress, Mike Tomlin will be hard-pressed to get him additional snaps in this offense.

2014 Week 9 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 44 / 2 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)

Bryant had his second consecutive 2-touchdown week against the Ravens. In his first touchdown, Bryant lined up short left on a 3-WR set and escaped coverage in the deep flat; Ben Roethlisberger pump faked, causing the safety to hesitate just long enough to find Bryant in the left corner of the endzone for a 19-yard touchdown. Bryant's second touchdown of the evening came in the fourth quarter, when he lined up on the far left and ran a post-route prior to catching an 18-yard pass from Roethlisberger. Bryant had a single carry on an end-around play in the fourth quarter that went for 3-yards. Despite his success when in the game, Bryant is still only playing approximately half of the Steelers' offensive snaps; if the coaching staff decides to give him additional playing time moving forward, Bryant has the potential to be a high-end fantasy WR2 in this offense.

2014 Week 10 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 143 / 1 rec)

Martavis Bryant continues to split offensive snaps with Markus Wheaton; Bryant was used primarily as a deep threat, but also in the Steelers' limited time in the redzone. Bryant caught a 45-yard pass on a post route in the third quarter, but Ben Roethlisberger underthrew the pass, which limited any opportunity to gain additional yardage after the catch. Late in the game, Bryant got past a defender while Roethlisberger scrambled out of the pocket to heave a 60-yard pass into Bryant's arms, which Bryant subsequently took the remaining 20 yards into the endzone for his sixth touchdown in four games.

2014 Week 11 vs TEN (5 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Rookie Martavis Bryant's four-game touchdown streak ended against the Titans, finishing with only 2 receptions for 11 yards receiving. Bryant, however, did see several high-value targets early in the game--he was wide-open in the endzone on a double move early in the first quarter, but failed to elevate over a closing defender to catch the ball; Bryant had a subsequent catchable pass bounce off his hands in the endzone during a two-minute drill at the end of the first half. Bryant was not targeted at all in the second half of the game.

2014 Week 13 vs NO (4 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)

Martavis Bryant caught his first, and only, pass on the first Steelers' drive of the afternoon; Bryant lined up short right and caught a Ben Roethlisberger pass on a post route for a total gain of 23 yards. For the second consecutive game, Bryant dropped a perfectly-placed pass in the endzone that would have resulted in a touchdown; he is now ranked 86th (out of 90 qualifying receivers) in dropped passes in the league, dropping a remarkable 19.0% of catchable passes. This phenomenon will be interesting to monitor moving forward because Bryant was outsnapped by teammate Markus Wheaton nearly 2 to 1 for the first time since Bryant burst onto the scene in Week #7, which could indicate that Bryant is dropping himself out of favor with the coaching staff.

2014 Week 14 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 109 / 1 rec)

The rookie wide receiver once again was outsnapped by teammate, Markus Wheaton, but Bryant finished with far superior fantasy numbers. Bryant played only ~34% of the Steelers' offensive snaps (24/71), but he was targeted six times (twice the amount of Wheaton) in those limited opportunities. Bryant continues to be a presence in the redzone, where his 6'4" frame is sorely needed on a team with smaller receivers. He is also being used to stretch the field to open up underneath routes for Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. Bryant displayed his world-class speed in the fourth quarter when Ben Roethlisberger found him on a 'go' route for a 94-yard touchdown; on the play, Bryant just outran his defender and Roethlisberger lofted a 50-yard pass, in stride, to Bryant, who easily ran the remaining 50 yards to paydirt.

2014 Week 15 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)

Bryant was once again outsnapped by teammate Markus Wheaton (26 to 36), but was still the recipient of several high-value targets from Ben Roethlisberger. Near the end of the first quarter, Bryant was targeted on a 'go route' by Ben Roethlisberger and he narrowly missed pulling in a 30-yard touchdown pass in double-coverage. Bryant did, however, catch 3 passes on the afternoon, although none of them were of the deep variety that has made him a household name in fantasy circles this season. Due to his limited snap count, Bryant remains a boom-or-bust fantasy option moving forward.

2014 Week 16 vs KC (2 / 1 / 44 / 0 rec, 2 / 9 / 0 rush)

The rookie wide receiver once again split snaps with Markus Wheaton. He caught his only pass, a 44-yard 'go' route, on the Steelers' third play from scrimmage. Bryant followed up that catch with an end-around for 9 yards on the very next play (another end-around in the fourth quarter yielded no net yardage). Those two plays would be his only gains on the entire afternoon, as the Chiefs were determined to not get beaten by the deep ball, which has been Bryant's specialty to this point in his young career. Bryant was targeted on a 1-yard redzone pass in the second quarter, but was held by a Chiefs' defender on the play.

2014 Week 17 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 21 / 1 rec)

Martavis Bryant once again split snaps with Markus Wheaton (43% versus 59%, respectively), but continues to see the higher-value targets from Ben Roethlisberger. Bryant scored the Steelers' first offensive touchdown of the evening in the second quarter; on the play, Bryant caught a quick pass to the flat, while Heath Miller and Markus Wheaton blocked ahead of him allowing for a 21-yard scamper into the endzone. He was also the target of a 40-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger near the end of the first half, but just missed pulling it in for the touchdown. Bryant is a high-risk, high-reward type of player in his current role, but could get an upgrade if his snap count were increased for the playoffs.

2014 Week 18 vs BAL (9 / 5 / 61 / 1 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)

Martavis Bryant finished his promising rookie campaign with a strong performance against the Ravens. Bryant played a season-high number of snaps (62) and made the most of them, ending the evening with the second most targets and the Steelers' only touchdown. On the play, the Steelers were deep in Ravens' territory and Bryant was isolated to the short (right) side of the field; Bryant ran a quick out route and Ben Roethlisberger lofted a pass for the 6'5" receiver, who got position and easily pulled in the catch over his much smaller defender. Entering 2015, Bryant is a strong WR2 for season-long leagues due to his large frame and usage in this offense.
