Martavis Bryant: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bryant (suspension) is dressed and will play in Saturday's preseason game, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Bryant, who is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, hopes to hear back on his appeal within the next seven to 10 days, reports ESPN.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The timeline suggests that Bryant will get the final word on his suspension, which is for marijuana use, before the regular season commences. It's thus all but assured that he'll be out for Week 1 and likely the first four weeks of the season. In his absence, Sammie Coates and/or Darrius Heyward-Bey will step in as the No. 3 wide receiver, with Markus Wheaton also a strong candidate to benefit from extra targets. The remaining two preseason games loom large for both Coates and Heyward-Bey.
Bryant is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's Substance Abuse Policy, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

While the report notes that the suspension is under appeal, this news sets the stage for the Steelers to open the regular season minus both Bryant and RB Le'Veon Bell, who will sit out the team's first two contests. In the absence of Bryant, look for Markus Wheaton to see added opportunities in the Steelers' passing offense out of the gate opposite top wideout Antonio Brown, while the likes of Sammie Coates, Darrius Heyward-Bey and C.J. Goodwin could factor in as well.
Bryant (elbow) caught three of his five targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the Jaguars.

Bryant (elbow) said he will return to practice Tuesday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bryant missed Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against the Vikings, but may have a shot to play in Friday's preseason game in Jacksonville. He underwent a minor surgical procedure within the first few days of training camp, with the expectation all along that he'd return for at least one or two preseason games. Of more importance than the elbow injury, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently said that Markus Wheaton, rather than Bryant, is expected to get most of the snaps in two-wide formations. The Steelers make heavy use of three-wide sets, but they also funnel a ton of touches to superstars Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.
Bryant (elbow) will not play in Sunday's preseason opener against the Vikings, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bryant underwent a minor surgical procedure at the beginning of the month, but he might have been held out of Sunday's game even if he were healthy. The Steelers are also holding back Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey, leaving C.J. Goodwin, Sammie Coates and Brelan Chancellor to take on key roles. Bryant received hype during the offseason, but recent comments made by Ben Roethlisberger strongly suggest that Markus Wheaton will get most of the snaps in two-wide formations once the regular season begins.
Bryant requires a minor procedure for an elbow infection and will be sidelined for the next 10 days as a result, Ross Jones of FOX Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bryant doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing significant time off the field but will likely be unable to play in Pittsburgh's first preseason game against the Vikings on Aug. 9. Assuming no further complications, his minor infection shouldn't hurt his value for the season ahead as he currently ranks third on the Steelers' wide receiver depth chart.
Bryant said he put on 20 pounds during the offseason, bringing him to 225 pounds with four percent body fat, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's not unusual for players to put on significant weight during their first offseason, and Bryant apparently finished his rookie year with just 205 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame, despite being listed at 211 pounds before the season. He now has prototypical size for a No. 1 wide receiver, although the added weight could cost him a bit of speed and/or agility. Explosiveness wasn't an issue during his rookie campaign, with Bryant catching 26 of 49 targets for 549 yards (11.2 YPT, 21.1 YPC) and eight touchdowns, even though he played just 10 games and 295 snaps. He figures to be much more involved this season and could match last year's efficiency numbers, but the Steelers still have Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell (suspension) to dominate the touches.

2015

2014

Bryant may have been very inconsistent in college, but at 6-4 and with 4.4 speed he brings size and speed elements to the Steelers that no other receiver on their roster possesses. In theory he'll be splitting playing time with second-year pro Markus Wheaton behind Antonio Brown and free agent Lance Moore, but it wouldn't be surprising if both youngsters got snaps at Moore's expense later in the season should Bryant show more polish than expected.
