Steelers | Xavier Grimble primed for more playing time?

Sat, 20 May 2017 15:06:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Xavier Grimble played more than twice as many snaps per game with Ladarius Green out than in last season. Prior to breaking his ribs in the second half of last season, Grimble averaged 19.9 snaps per contest.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat notable because Pittsburgh did not address the tight end position in free agency or the draft and released Green earlier this week. Jesse James will remain the starter in all likelihood, but Grimble gives the Steelers a bit more of a downfield threat. Then again, if Martavis Bryant is able to return to form and/or rookie Juju Smith-Schuster emerges as a viable threat underneath, the odds are fairly strong Pittsburgh may not have a tight end worth caring about in fantasy.

Steelers | Jesse James to be No. 1 tight end

Thu, 18 May 2017 19:00:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James will be the "main guy" at the tight end position this year, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh released Ladarius Green and didn't draft a tight end, so the Steelers appear comfortable with James as the top option at the position. He could sneak into TE1 territory.

Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster to have slot role?

Thu, 18 May 2017 14:30:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has the size and ability to serve as a successful slot receiver if that's where the Steelers want him to play, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie will need to battle Eli Rogers and Darrius Heyward-Bey for playing time as Pittsburgh's No. 3 receiver behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. There is promise with Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh, but it may take some time for him to reach his full potential. He's no more than a late-round flier.

Steelers | Ladarius Green released

Thu, 18 May 2017 12:19:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green was released Thursday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: That experiment didn't go very well for the Steelers. Jesse James now has a firm grasp on the starting tight end job in Pittsburgh. He'll cede some playing time to David Johnson, but James is officially a deep sleeper at his position.

Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster staying focused

Sun, 14 May 2017 19:00:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he wants to earn a starting role but is currently focused on learning learning the playbook and running the proper routes.

Fantasy Tip: Smith-Schuster is a physical receiver who could become a possession option alongside Antonio Brown sooner rather than later. He is a late-round flier in redraft leagues, but he is an attractive stash candidate in keeper formats.
