Outlook

The Steelers won the division last year and return much of that team from 2014. Pittsburgh can find success again this season. The offense is becoming one of the best in the league while the defense has improved from the last few years. The defense still has a few holes but the offense can make up for that. A big concern might be early in the year when star running back LeVeon Bell is serving a suspension. If the Steelers can get by while Bell is out, this team can make another playoff appearance. The Steelers might not be a Super Bowl contender but are pretty close to that level.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Martavis Bryant showed his promise the second half of last season, having two 100-yard games while scoring eight touchdowns. He also averaged more than 21 yards per receptions. Bryant is a big-play threat that will start from day one this season. He has big potential in this offense and could reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. Donā??t expect his touchdown pace to maintain from last season but heā??ll get his scores and should get more yards and receptions. Bryant is a young receiver on the rise.
FANTASY DUD
It came as a bit of a surprise, but tight end Heath Miller had a nice season last year. Just when you thought he was starting to fade, he finishes with 761 yards and four games with seven or more receptions. Miller had another productive season as the starter for the Steelers. But Miller has to start to fade sooner than later. He is another year older with a lot of wear and tear on his body. Plus, the Steelers have more weapons in the passing game, which should take some targets away from Miller. We expect his numbers to take a bit of a dip this season.
