Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not the subject of trade plans, according to Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. He added teams have called about Bryant, but Colbert said Wednesday, Feb. 28, the wide receiver is not on the trading market.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was said to be on the way out of Pittsburgh, but Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says he has no interest in trading Bryant. Colbert says other teams have called on Bryant, but the Steelers are not looking to trade him. Bryant is cheap at $705,000 for 2018, but is entering the final year of his rookie deal and looks destined to leave the team at this time next year. Bryant wants to be a No. 1 receiver, and that is not going to happen in Pittsburgh. The team values his playmaking ability as a big-play threat outside.
The Buffalo Bills, who were trying to trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant at the October deadline, could get involved again this offseason. The Steelers were listing on Bryant at the deadline last year but felt a fourth-round pick wasn't fair compensation. A late second-rounder or low third-rounder could get something done. Bryant became the third wideout in Pittsburgh last year due to the emergence of rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster, and he wasn't happy about the role. If he remains in Pittsburgh, Bryant will be more of a WR5 with touchdown upside in deeper leagues.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has not had any contract extension talks with the Steelers. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
The Buffalo Bills had interest in acquiring Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant during the regular season.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh, but Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Steelers "have not made any attempts to move" Bryant. La Canfora added that the Steelers "aren't calling teams or soliciting calls" on Bryant. This conflicts with an earlier report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said Pittsburgh was "listening to potential deals." Bryant ruffled feathers by complaining about his role last season but is only due $705,000 in 2018. If the Steelers stand pat, Bryant will return as the No. 3 wideout behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is reportedly on the trading block as the team is listening to potential deals for him, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has had an up and down tenure in Pittsburgh and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are "listening to potential deals" for Bryant. Rapoport made it a point to say the Steelers are not necessarily shopping Bryant, but it sounds like they are all ears to offers. Bryant made a big stink midway through last season when he felt he was not playing enough, and the Steelers then made him a healthy scratch for Week 8. Bryant quit the social media complaining, but was a disappointment with a 52-681-4 line. JuJu Smith-Schuster has emerged as the Steelers' No. 2 wideout. Bryant has one year left on his deal.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant isn't being shopped by the team, but they are fielding offers on him.
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.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to return to the Steelers next season and will be ready for offseason workouts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 60 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 16.
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.
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.
