Heath Miller had four catches for 51 yards in Week 3 against the Panthers.

Miller was overthrown by Ben Roethlisberger on his lone red-zone target. He has 11 catches for 112 yards through three games. Miller will look to exploit a Bucs defense that struggles to cover tight ends in Week 4.

Markus Wheaton had four catches for 35 yards in Sunday night's win over the Panthers.

Wheaton had a touchdown overturned in the first quarter, but it was an otherwise quiet night. He was targeted just five times. The Steelers ran for over 260 yards and didn't need their pass game. Wheaton remains a high-upside WR4.
Sep 22 - 1:19 AM

Antonio Brown had 10 catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

Both of his touchdowns came on seven-yard throws from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown also had a highlight over-the-shoulder 30-yard catch on third down in the second quarter. It's the 19th straight game Brown has had at least five receptions. Brown will remain a must-start WR1 against the Bucs in Week 4.
Sep 22 - 12:59 AM

LeGarrette Blount had 10 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

Blount took over for Le'Veon Bell late in the second half and had a 50-yard run in garbage time. He trucked Panthers FS Thomas DeCoud for an eight-yard touchdown. Blount also did one of his signature hurdles over CB Antoine Cason. The Steelers offensive line dominated the Panthers front-four, with Blount and Bell both rushing for over 100 yards. Blount could see more late-game opportunities in Week 4 against the Bucs.
Sep 22 - 12:42 AM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 147 yards in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

He added two catches for 10 yards. Bell's highlight of the night was an 81-yard run in the third quarter. He was held out of the end-zone for the second straight week, but continues to look like one of the league's most complete backs. Bell has 461 total yards heading into Week 4. He's locked in as a matchup-proof RB1.
Sep 22 - 12:32 AM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 blowout of the Panthers.

The Steelers didn't need their pass game with Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both rushing for over 100 yards, but Roethlisberger was able to connect with Antonio Brown for two third-quarter touchdowns. One of his touchdowns was a vintage Big Ben play where he pump faked the entire Panthers defense and made a cross-field throw to Brown. Roethlisberger should get more opportunities to throw in a matchup with the Bucs in Week 4, making him a low-end QB1. He's averaging 273 passing yards with a 3:2 TD:INT ratio through three games.
Sep 22 - 12:09 AM

Steelers RCB Ike Taylor left Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a forearm injury.

Taylor suffered a broken forearm on a tackle by ILB Lawrence Timmons. He'll likely require surgery and is looking at an extend absence. It's a potential season-ending injury. Taylor could be headed for injured reserve.
Sep 21 - 10:37 PM

Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones was forced from Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury.

He's done for the night. Arthur Moats will replace Jones in base sets.
Sep 21 - 10:30 PM

Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier suffered a right knee injury in Sunday night's game against the Panthers and will not return.

Shazier limped off the field and was helped to the locker room. The fact that the he was ruled out immediately isn't a good sign. Vince Williams will replace Shazier next to Lawrence Timmons.
Sep 21 - 10:24 PM

Steelers RB/KR Dri Archer (ankle) is inactive for Sunday night's Week 3 game against the Panthers.

Archer practiced on a limited basis this week and could return in Week 4. The rest of the Steelers inactives are QB Landry Jones, LG Ramon Foster, NT Dan McCullers, CB B.W. Weeb, and OL Wesley Johnson. WR Martavis Bryant is a healthy scratch.
Sep 21 - 7:05 PM

Lance Moore (groin) is probable for Week 3.

Moore will make his debut on Sunday night against the Panthers. He'll be the Steelers' No. 3 receiver behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.
Sep 19 - 8:40 PM

Steelers RB/KR Dri Archer (ankle) remained limited Thursday.

Archer may have to get in a "full" session on Friday to contribute on special teams against the Panthers. Archer isn't on the fantasy radar.
Sep 18 - 5:29 PM

Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 3.

Bryant also practiced in full for Week 2, but was scratched against the Ravens. With Lance Moore (groin) returning for Week 3, Bryant could again find himself inactive.
Sep 18 - 5:28 PM

Steelers RB/KR Dri Archer (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Archer was held out last week, but could return after missing just one game. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 3:47 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has resumed practicing in full.

Moore missed the first two games, leaving Justin Brown to act as the No. 3 receiver. The veteran should be fine to return as a fourth option behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.
