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.

Team Notes

Apr 25, 07:33 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) posted a video on Twitter showing himself dunking a basketball.
Apr 20, 12:53 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell tweeted that he was part of the initial round of random drug tests Wednesday, April 20.
Apr 18, 05:43 PM Buffalo Bills DB Cam Thomas was placed on no-recall waivers Monday, April 18.
Apr 18, 04:23 PM Free-agent QB Bruce Gradkowski (Steelers) is still an option for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the team wants to see him throw before they sign him. Gradkowski missed the entire 2015 season because of a shoulder injury.
Apr 18, 03:53 PM Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (leg) was present for the first day of offseason training Monday, April 18, and said he's doing great after missing last season with a broken fibula.
Apr 06, 12:53 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) has been fully cleared for workouts.
Apr 05, 10:33 PM Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison is expected to return for the 2016 season. He has been in Arizona doing through a rather strenuous routine to stay in shape for the new season, and beat writer Ed Bouchette said that while Harrison hasn't given a definitive answer, Harrison isn't likely working so hard just to retire.
Apr 05, 12:33 PM Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has lost at least 15 pounds this offseason with a cardio regimen in an attempt to avoid joint pain and injuries.
Mar 25, 11:53 AM Free-agent LB Steven Johnson (Titans) signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, March 25.
Mar 24, 12:13 PM Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green will give the team a vertical threat at the position that retired TE Heath Miller didn't give them. 'He'll bring us a dimension at tight end that we really haven't had,' general manager Kevin Colbert said. 'Heath was a great receiver, a great blocker. He wasn't really a stretch the field guy. Ladarius gives you that added dimension of speed, he'll have to work on his blocking to get caught up to where we need him to be. But the speed and vertical threat at tight end is really something we haven't had.'
Mar 22, 02:53 PM The Pittsburgh Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver job is up for grabs between WRs Markus Wheaton, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates this year, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Wheaton seems like the favorite for the spot, but Tomlin also sees Coates as a potential breakout candidate in 2016.

Fantasy Impact: Wheaton is the heavy favorite to start for the Steelers but nothing is guaranteed right now.
Mar 21, 05:53 PM Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (leg) has been full go during his offseason training after missing all of last season with a broken fibula.
Mar 20, 03:23 PM Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates will be one of the next men up in light of WR Martavis Bryant's year-long suspension for violating the NFL' substance abuse policy. There is no urgency to sign or draft another wide receiver, according to general manager Kevin Colbert, who said they feel good about Coates.

Fantasy Impact: Coates did next to nothing last year, so don't just pencil him in for big things this coming year. He has a lot of work to do.
