Player Notes
Jan 15 4:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caused a stir during the regular season when he went to social media to complain about his role on the team and later requested a trade from the team. The young receiver has changed his tune after his team's Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, telling reporters he wants to be back with the team next year and will be ready for organized team activities, stating his desire to win a Super Bowl with the team. It was unlikely that the team would have traded Bryant this offseason anyway after they responded to his previous tirade and trade demand by suspending him for one game. Look for Bryant to resume his role as the team's No. 3 wide receiver in 2018.

Jan 15 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to return to the Steelers next season and will be ready for offseason workouts.

Jan 14 9:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught only two passes in his playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but he certainly made them count. The young wideout caught 2-of-4 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown as his team lost 45-42 in a shootout with the Jaguars. Bryant's score came on a 36-yard over-the-shoulder strike from Ben Roethlisberger at the end of the first half. While he only made one other catch in the game, Bryant ends his 2017 season on a positive note after losing his spot as the team's No. 2 wide receiver to rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bryant has always been a boom/bust player but he busted far more often than he boomed in 2017. He will look to carve out a bigger role in his team's offense in 2018.

Jan 14 4:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught two passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

Dec 31 9:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught 6-of-7 targets for 65 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17. Bryant saw an uptick in usage over the past few weeks while Antonio Brown has been sidelined by a calf injury, which has helped to offset what was a mostly disappointing season. Bryant, who lost his starting role to rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster during the year, finishes the 2017 campaign with 50 catches for 603 yards and three touchdowns. Assuming Brown is ready to play in two weeks in the divisional round of the playoffs, Bryant will go back to being the No. 3 option in the passing attack.

Dec 31 5:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones completed 23-of-27 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns with QB Ben Roethlisberger resting. RB Stevan Ridley carried 17 times for 80 yards and a score with RB Le'Veon Bell sitting out, while WR Darrius Heyward-Bey scored on a 29-yard rush. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster shined with nine grabs, 143 yards and a score, and WR Martavis Bryant was good for six catches and 65 yards.

Dec 29 10:40am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has seen his most productive stretch of the season over the past four games, catching 17 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown. The Pittsburgh wideout will certainly benefit from the absence of Antonio Brown in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns but he will also be catching passes from backup quarterback Landry Jones as the Steelers will rest Ben Roethlisberger. The presence of Jones under center will limit Bryant's upside, but there is still hope for him to have a big game against a leaky Browns secondary. Bryant will be a boom/bust flex option for Week 17.

Dec 25 11:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught 3-of-4 targets for 60 yards in Week 16 against the Houston Texans. The 60 yards represents his highest output since he hung 91 yards and a score on the Minnesota Vikings back in Week 2. While Bryant certainly has more upside while Antonio Brown is out of the lineup, he really hasn't done enough this season to be trustable in fantasy leagues. The Steelers will welcome the Cleveland Browns to town in Week 17 to finish off the season.

Dec 25 7:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 60 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

Dec 22 7:50am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been through an up-and-down season. He will look to finish out on a positive note as he takes on the Houston Texans in Week 16. Bryant should see an increased workload as top wideout Antonio Brown will not play due to a calf injury. Brown is averaging 11.57 targets per game which opens up a huge opportunity for Bryant to step up for his team. He draws a fantastic Week 16 matchup against a Houston Texans secondary that is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. While Bryant has mostly been a fantasy disappointment this season, he has been playing better lately and this matchup is too good to pass up. Feel free to trust Bryant as a high-upside WR3 in Week 16.

Dec 17 11:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant ended up with four receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

Dec 17 11:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant turned in a solid game against the New England Patriots in Week 15. Bryant caught 4-of-6 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown as his team lost to New England 27-24. Bryant saw additional chances with No. 1 wide receiver Antonio Brown leaving the game during the second quarter with a partial tear in his left calf. The injury is expected to hold Brown out of action until the playoffs, which means Bryant should see additional targets in the passing game over the final two games of the regular season. Bryant draws an excellent Week 16 matchup against a Houston Texans secondary that has really struggled to contain opposing wide receivers this season.

Dec 11 7:40am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant came up small in his team's Sunday night game against the Baltimore Ravens. On a night where quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards, Bryant managed just 33 receiving yards on six catches. It was a disappointing performance for a receiver who many had pegged as a sneaky blowup candidate with JuJu Smith-Schuster suspended. Instead, it was more of the same for Bryant, who has busted far more than he has boomed this season. With Smith-Schuster returning to action this week, Bryant will return to his role as the team's No. 3 receiver in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

Dec 8 10:10am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has struggled through a disappointing 2017 season. The veteran wideout has seen his No. 2 receiver role usurped by rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, which has cut into his target share. That being said, Smith-Schuster is suspended for Week 14's game against the Baltimore Ravens, which will allow Bryant to see an increased role on Sunday night. The Ravens have been stingy against opposing pass offenses this season but they will also be playing without top cornerback Jimmy Smith, which will open things up for the Steelers offense. Bryant is in play as a boom/bust WR4 option in Week 14 and is a great GPP option in daily leagues.

Dec 5 7:40am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant turned in a decent game for his team against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13. The wideout caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards to finish third on his team in receiving. It was rare that he outproduced teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster since the rookie broke out last month. Despite the decent game, Bryant is still not connecting with Ben Roethlisberger on long pass plays, which were a staple of his game in the past. Bryant will suit up against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14.
