Player Notes
Sep 17 11:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers Martavis Bryant turned in a big game for his team in Week 2. The talented wideout caught 3-of-4 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown to help down the Minnesota Vikings 26-9. Bryant caught a 27-yard score from the hand of Ben Roethlisberger for his first touchdown of the season. Many of Bryant's fantasy owners were concerned after he caught just two passes for 14 yards in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, but this should put those concerns to rest. Look for Bryant to stay hot in Week 3 when he travels to Chicago to take on the Bears.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 91 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Sep 14 10:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had a disappointing Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. Bryant caught just two passes for 14 yards in his first game since the end of the 2015 season. Bryant will look to get back to his explosive ways on Sunday when he takes on the Minnesota Vikings at home. While the Vikings have a tough defense, Ben Roethlisberger has been much better at home over the past few seasons. Look for Bryant to be less rusty in Week 2 after getting back in the swing of things last week. Bryant sets up as a boom/bust fantasy option in Week 2.

Sep 10 11:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had a slow game during Week 1's 21-18 win over the Cleveland Browns. While Antonio Brown went ballistic with 11 catches for 182 yards, Bryant only hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 14 yards on Sunday. It is likely that Bryant still needs to knock off some of the rust after having not played for the Steelers since the end of the 2015 season. While his final stats from Sunday don't look encouraging, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did target Bryant deep down the field at least twice. Due to the nature of his game, Bryant is going to be a bit more boom/bust than other receivers in his tier but he also has week winning upside.

Sep 10 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught two passes for 14 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.

Sep 7 1:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant will step foot on an NFL field for the first time since Week 17 of the 2015 season. The 25-year-old wide receiver draws a fantastic matchup right off the bat as he will take on a Browns defense that struggled in pass coverage last year. Football Outsiders ranked Cleveland as the 29th team in DVOA in 2016. They could be worse in coverage this season after cutting loose their best defensive back in Joe Haden. Look for the Steelers to take a few deep shots to Bryant on Sunday to get him back into the flow of things on offense. Bryant is a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 in Week 1.

Sep 1 4:40pm ET

The NFL fully reinstated Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant on Friday. Bryant received his conditional reinstatement a few weeks back, but that only allowed him to participate in preseason games and practices. The news on Friday means that fantasy owners can draft Bryant with confidence heading into Week 1 of the NFL season. Bryant is expected to operate as the Steelers' No. 2 option in the passing game after Antonio Brown and has a fantastic Week 1 matchup against a Cleveland Browns team that just released its top cornerback, Joe Haden. As long as Bryant can stay out of trouble, he's primed for a big season.

Sep 1 4:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has been reinstated by the NFL and is now allowed to play in regular season games.

Aug 31 11:43pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers expect WR Martavis Bryant to be fully reinstated before the start of the regular season, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Colbert said the team has not heard from the NFL regarding Bryant's status yet.

Aug 27 9:50am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was busy in his team's third preseason game on Saturday night. Bryant caught 5-of-6 targets for 23 yards against the Indianapolis Colts. Bryant's longest catch went for 13 yards in his first preseason action with starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. While it didn't show up in the box score, Bryant is expected to operate as the team's main deep threat this season. Bryant has loads of potential and has WR1 upside if he's able to stay on the field all season. Of course, Bryant has struggled to stay out of trouble over his NFL career and is another slip up away from at least a year-long ban. That makes him a boom-bust selection in fantasy drafts this year. By all accounts, he's been on his best behavior this summer, making him worth the risk if you can get him at a good value.

Aug 23 9:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant missed Wednesday's practice and is currently being called day-to-day by the team. He came down with a hamstring injury, which prevented him from partaking in his first practice since being conditionally reinstated by the NFL two weeks ago. According to a report, head coach Mike Tomlin does expect Bryant to be able to participate in Thursday's practice. There's no cause for concern just yet, although a few more missed practices would start to send up some red flags for Bryant. Bryant is set to be the No. 2 target in what should be an explosive Pittsburgh passing attack this year.

Aug 23 5:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (hamstring) was seen with his hamstring wrapped, but head coach Mike Tomlin said Bryant is only considered day-to-day and expects him to practice Thursday, Aug. 24.

Aug 20 9:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant saw his first game action in 18 months, finishing with two catches for 20 yards in a 17-13 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 20.

Aug 12 12:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant participated in a closed practice session Thursday, Aug. 10, and has been cleared for full practice Sunday, Aug. 13, after the Steelers received word from the league earlier in the week he was allowed to rejoin the team.

Aug 12 12:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was recently reinstated for preseason work by the NFL following a year-long suspension. The 25-year-old wide receiver was not ready to participate in his team's first preseason game on Friday night, but from this point on, it appears to be all systems go for Bryant. Head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters, "We're going to put our foot on the gas and proceed. He's physically ready. We've gotten the go-ahead from New York [NFL office]. We got him in a stringent workout and warm-up tonight. We didn't deem it was appropriate because of lack of prep to play in this game. He'll start like the rest of them when we get back to Latrobe and continue with development". Provided he's reinstated for regular season work, Bryant is a high upside fantasy receiver this season.

Aug 11 6:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not expected to play in the preseason game against the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 11, according to sources.

Aug 9 7:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has been cleared for all preseason activities but will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular season activities.

Aug 9 7:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is now permitted to participate in all football activities, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Aug 6 8:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be fully reinstated and return to practice this week, a team source said Sunday, Aug. 6.

Aug 4 2:50pm ET

No one has actually come out and said what these supposed requirements are, but Martavis Bryant is still waiting for the NFL to make an official ruling on his reinstatement. In typical NFL fashion, this has already gone on long enough. The sooner this is over the better.
