Tue, 28 Jun 2016 07:07:01 -0700

Steelers | Shaun Suisham cut

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 07:05:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) was released Friday, June 24, with a failed physical designation. PK Chris Boswell enters training camp as the likely starter.

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.

Steelers | Pittsburgh could trade a kicker

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 10:52:59 -0700

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.

Steelers | Shaun Suisham expected to kick soon

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:29:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) is expected to able to kick before the start of training camp, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

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.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger likes two-point tries

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:16:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he would like to attempt two-point conversions after every touchdown this season. He and head coach Mike Tomlin have discussed the possibility.

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.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell may wait for new deal

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 10:57:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is a candidate for a contract extension, but the Steelers may want to make sure he is completely recovered from his knee injury before signing him.

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.
