Fantasy Tip: Boswell should be an upper-middle kicker option in fantasy since the Steelers' offense is so potent. However, they've sent messages that they could attempt two-point conversions often. That could hurt Boswell slightly.

Pittsburgh Steelers PKs Shaun Suisham and Chris Boswell will be competing for the kicker job during training camp, but the team may look to trade one of the kickers before the start of the regular season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.
Fantasy Tip: Boswell may have an edge over Suisham entering camp because he is cheaper, but owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Both probably will have jobs in 2016 and should both be decent options in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones received most of the work as the No. 2 quarterback during offseason workouts and appears to have an edge over QB Bruce Gradkowski for the job heading into training camp.

Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (leg) had six surgical procedures and a skin graft as a result of the broken left tibia he suffered in a 2015 preseason game. The initial surgical wound didn't heal properly resulting in a staph infection and a need for the subsequent surgeries.

Fantasy Tip: Suisham continues to be sidelined because of the knee injury he suffered last season but will compete with Chris Boswell for the job during camp. He may be the underdog for the job because of his high salary but should be a kicker in a team in 2016. Suisham is a decent fantasy kicker but may not be a weekly starting option.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell addressed rumors that he missed a drug test, which would result in a failed test result. "I haven't missed any drug tests, failed any drug tests. I am fine," Bell said Tuesday, June 14.
Fantasy Tip: That's good news for prospective fantasy owners of Bell, and especially those who own him in long-term keeper formats.

Fantasy Tip: It's an intriguing idea with the point-after-attempt further back. Doing so would give a little more value to guys like Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Markus Wheaton and Ladarius Green, not to mention Big Ben. Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell are all top options at their respective positions in any fantasy format, with or without a two-point attempt after every score. Additionally, Shaun Suisham or Chris Boswell could also see a decrease in production with such an effort. Neither should be viewed as a PK1 anyway.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is expected to be ready for the start of training camp and should be a big part of the offense in 2016. Bell is one of the best running backs in fantasy football when healthy and should be a first-round option in most drafts.
