Outlook

The Steelers were a playoff team last year, mainly because of an explosive offense. The team should have similar success offensively this year, having most of their pieces back in place. They will miss receiver Martavis Bryant but have enough firepower behind him to help make up for that lose. The team still has some issues stopping the pass, though, which is a concern. If the defense makes just a little progress this year, the Steelers could challenge for the AFC title.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
The Steelers signed tight end Ladarius Green to take over the starting tight end duties for the team. Green finally gets his chance to start from day one and in an offense that should put up a lot of points. Greens plays more like a receiver than a tight end and should have plenty of big games along the way this year. He might be a little inconsistent but you have to like his weekly potential. Green is setup for his best season to date.
FANTASY DUD
He had a great season filling in for Le'Veon Bell last year but DeAngelo Williams probably will have a hard time getting that much playing time this year. Bell might be a little slowed early in the year but he'll be the unquestioned three-down back once he is healthy and ready to take on the lead role. It will be a stretch to think Williams will repeat his huge season from last year.

Team Notes

May 25, 02:33 PM Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) is out of organized team activities as he recovers from offseason ankle surgery. He doesn't have a firm timetable, but he's hopeful to be ready for training camp.
May 25, 01:33 AM Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said the offense will be looking to average 30 points per game in 2016 even though WR Martavis Bryant has been suspended for the entire season. 'It is still our goal,' Roethlisberger said. 'We were close last year, but we didn't get there.' The Steelers averaged 26.4 points per game in 2015 but the average increased to 28.9 points when Roethlisberger started or played at least a half.
May 24, 08:13 PM Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (leg) participated fully in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Pouncey said his injured leg is at 100% despite having multiple surgeries last year to repair a fractured fibula in his left leg.
May 24, 03:03 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) doesn't believe each of his three injuries in each of his first three seasons in the NFL isn't indicative of him being injury prone. Bell said he's still going to be physical but protect himself at the same time.
May 24, 02:43 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he will be 100% healthy by training camp. He has already participated in individual drills during organized team activities, including running and cutting, as he continues to recover from a torn medial collateral ligament.
May 24, 01:33 PM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee), who is recovering from surgery for a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee, said he plans on making a full return in time for Week 1.
May 23, 09:43 PM Pittsburgh Steelers TEs Ladarius Green and Jesse James may both be on the field at the same time in the red zone because of their height.

May 20, 10:43 AM Pittsburgh Steelers SS Sean Davis signed his four-year rookie deal Friday, May 20. Terms were not disclosed.
May 19, 08:03 PM Pittsburgh Steelers FS Mike Mitchell (shoulder) is expected to be cleared for training camp. Mitchell is four months removed from shoulder surgery and has begun working out.
May 18, 07:43 PM Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown believes his experience on Dancing With the Stars can give him an advantage on the football field. '[Dance training] can definitely help me with football, change of direction, fluidity, constantly being ready for the next move,' Brown said. 'Dancing is all about the next move, being prepared for the next move in the midst of any move. It will definitely help with ankle strength, pushing off, change of direction.'
May 11, 09:03 AM Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's (knee) status for organized team activities in a few weeks is unknown, but he's expected to be limited if he's cleared. Training camp might be the best gauge used to determine his status as he's six months removed from right knee surgery. There's no timetable for a full return. As it stands, there's no definitive reason to believe Bell will miss Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: It is looking good for Bell to be ready for the start of the coming season.
May 02, 11:33 PM The Pittsburgh Steelers declined the 2017 fifth-year option on LB Jarvis Jones Monday, May 2.
