|Steelers | DeAngelo Williams will be used|
Thu, 09 Jun 2016 09:30:34 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams will be used by offensive coordinator Todd Haley in 2016 despite the return of RB Le'Veon Bell from injury. "I think the difference between last year and this year is that we got a big body of work from DeAngelo last year," said Haley. "We got to see him do a lot of things, and obviously he did a very good job for us. Knowing a lot more about him will maybe help give Le'Veon more rest when he needs it, although knowing Le'Veon he never wants to come off."
Fantasy Tip: Williams proved very valuable as a waiver-wire darling last year after Bell went down with injury, so he's surely capable of being productive with fewer carries, too. However, it remains to be seen how much he'll be used, and as long as Bell is healthy, Williams' fantasy value remains low.

Fantasy Tip: With Le'Veon Bell's (knee) status murky, Williams could open the season with enhanced value again. However, he's more of an RB4 or a handcuff to Bell that doesn't figure to see a big chunk of work when Bell is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Le'Veon Bell should be healthy and ready to go this offseason, too, which means Williams would once again assume his backup role. He filled in very nicely for Bell this season, but he won't receive a lot of playing time in 2016 if Bell can stay healthy.

|Steelers | DeAngelo Williams ruled out|
Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:44:22 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Williams was never really expected to play this weekend. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) were both pretty productive in splitting the backfield duties in the wild-card round, but they face a much stiffer test this weekend. With a banged up Big Ben under center, both running backs are a tougher sell on FantasyScore.

|Steelers | No practice for DeAngelo Williams|
Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:21:04 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is a long shot to play this weekend. Avoid him. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) face a tough matchup in the Denver Broncos, but Todman is especially intriguing as a deep sleeper as a pass-catching option out of the backfield.

|Steelers | DeAngelo Williams absent Wednesday|
Wed, 13 Jan 2016 14:31:05 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The chances of Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) playing against the Denver Broncos are slim to none. He was put back in a walking boot this week. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) were a formidable duo in the wild-card round and will continue to carry the load. The Broncos are a tough defense, but Todman has appeal as a contrarian pick to do damage in the passing game with Antonio Brown injured.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for him in the divisional round. Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will be a midrange option against the Denver Broncos on FantasyScore.

|Steelers | DeAngelo Williams doesn't need practice|
Tue, 12 Jan 2016 16:35:50 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Williams' chances of playing against the Denver Broncos aren't looking good despite the prospect that he could still play without practicing. If Williams ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is sidelined again, Fitzgerald Toussaint ($4,500, 9.0%) and Jordan Todman ($3,700, 7.4%) would once again take over backfield duties. Neither is a great play against Denver, but Toussaint would be the better choice if you're determined to start a Pittsburgh running back.

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 14:47:55 -0800
Fantasy Tip: It's looking more and more like Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman will once again split backfield duties, but Toussaint had more touches last week and is a better FantasyScore option if you want to risk one of them versus a top notch Denver Broncos defense.
