The Week 17 Bengals at Steelers game has been flexed to Sunday Night Football on NBC.

The game will decide the AFC North. However, a lot of intrigue could be lost if the Bengals beat the Broncos tonight as that would clinch a playoff berth for Marvin Lewis' bunch. The Steelers already clinched a playoff spot by beating the Chiefs yesterday. Other options for NBC included the Lions at Packers in a game for the NFC North and the Panthers at Falcons for the NFC South crown (along with a playoff spot).

Markus Wheaton caught 2-of-3 targets for 27 yards in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

Wheaton is now up to 50 grabs on the season. Still rotating snaps with Martavis Bryant behind all-world WR Antonio Brown, Wheaton won't be on the DFS radar in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 5:42 PM

Heath Miller caught 7-of-8 targets for 68 yards in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

The seven-catch effort was Miller's fourth of the season. Miller has been up and down this year, but enters Week 17 the owner of a Miller-esque 63/720/3 receiving line. Now 32, Miller is signed through 2016.
Dec 21 - 5:20 PM

Martavis Bryant caught 1-of-2 targets for 44 yards in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

He added two rushes for nine yards. Both of Bryant's targets were deep sideline numbers, with his catch coming on Pittsburgh's third play from scrimmage. Boom or bust on a weekly basis, Bryant will be a poor bet to find the end zone against Cincinnati's stingy secondary in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 5:08 PM

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-9 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

One of Brown's missed connections was a drop in the end zone. Nevertheless, it was a good day against one of the league's better secondaries. Brown enters Pittsburgh's climatic Week 17 showdown with the Bengals the owner of an eye-popping 122/1,570/12 receiving line. He's one of the best players in football.
Dec 21 - 5:06 PM

Le'Veon Bell rushed 20 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs, adding a nine-yard reception.

For just the third time all season, Bell was held below 100 yards from scrimmage, but he now has 10 total touchdowns over his past five games. Bell should eat in Week 17 against the Bengals, where the Steelers will be playing for a division title and home playoff game.
Dec 21 - 4:52 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-25 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12, Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

Big Ben was slowed by the Chiefs' elite pass defense, but found just enough cushions to propel the Steelers to their 10th win, and a Wild Card berth. Pittsburgh can still clinch the division if they beat the Bengals in Week 17. Ben was lucky to escape without a turnover, as he appeared to lose a first-half fumble, but it was ruled an incomplete pass upon a dubious review. Ben also tweaked his right knee, but was no worse for the wear after running to the locker room for some brief treatment.
Dec 21 - 4:16 PM

Steelers declared SS Troy Polamalu, QB Landry Jones, WR Justin Brown, CB Ike Taylor, TE Matt Spaeth, DE Clifton Geathers and OL Chris Hubbard inactive for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Polamalu is battling a knee injury, while Taylor has knee, shoulder and arm ailments. Kansas City's Alex Smith is going to have lots of cushions to target on Sunday.
Dec 21 - 11:40 AM

Steelers LCB Ike Taylor is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

The fantasy moneymaker will join SS Troy Polamalu (knee) on the sideline. 34-year-old Taylor is battling injuries to his knee, shoulder, and arm.
Dec 19 - 1:57 PM

Steelers SS Troy Polamalu (knee) is doubtful for Week 16.

It's a boost to Travis Kelce's matchup. Polamalu has played in 12 games this year, recording 61 tackles, one forced fumble, and one pass deflection.
Dec 19 - 1:30 PM

Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 31 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He was targeted five times, along with Markus Wheaton, as the two continue to split snaps and looks opposite Antonio Brown. Bryant drew a look in the end zone, but chose to go up with one hand and failed to reel the ball in in the first half. Bryant has become an extreme boom-or-bust WR4 of late.
Dec 14 - 5:17 PM

Markus Wheaton caught five passes for 66 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He caught all five passes that came his direction. Wheaton and Martavis Bryant continue to split snaps and targets opposite Antonio Brown. They're also behind Le'Veon Bell in the pecking order. Wheaton isn't a Week 16 fantasy option.
Dec 14 - 5:05 PM

Heath Miller caught four passes for 68 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He was targeted five times, tied for third-most on the team behind Antonio Brown (10) and Le'Veon Bell (7). Miller's biggest grab of the day was a 25-yard pickup late in the fourth quarter that sealed the seven-point win and allowed the Steelers to drain the clock with three kneel-downs. Miller will be a borderline TE1/2 next week at home against the Chiefs. He faces weekly volume uncertainty.
Dec 14 - 4:50 PM

Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 123 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He caught all 10 passes that came his direction. Brown's best grab was a toe-tapping grab just before halftime that set the offense up at the one-yard line. Le'Veon Bell pounded in the touchdown on the next play. Brown has proven time and again that even the best corners in the league can't hang with him. Desmond Trufant was the latest victim. Brown now has at least five catches and 50 yards in 30 straight games. Watch him work next week against the Chiefs at home.
Dec 14 - 4:34 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 27-of-35 passes for 360 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

Big Ben and the passing game accounted for much of the offense, but Le'Veon Bell was the one cleaning it all up at the goal line with two rushing touchdowns despite 47 rush yards. Roethlisberger hooked up with Antonio Brown 10 times for 123 yards. Heath Miller reeled in four passes for 68 yards, including a 25-yard gain that sealed the seven-point win. Big Ben gets the Chiefs in Week 16.
