Steelers WR Eli Rogers tore his ACL late in last weekend'd loss to the Jaguars, according to insider Gerry Dulac. The timing of the injury will make it tough for Rogers to be ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. After catching 48 balls a year ago, Rogers tallied just 18 this season as he played behind Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant. The 25-year-old is a restricted free agent this offseason.
Steelers WR Eli Rogers is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. He wasn’t on the injury report, so he appears to be a healthy scratch. Rogers had already fallen behind WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on the depth chart prior to this week. Rogers isn’t worth rostering in fantasy football.
The Steelers listed TE Ladarius Green (concussion) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He didn't practice on Friday, though, and HC Mike Tomlin confirmed afterward that he hasn't passed through the concussion protocol. Jesse James will serve as Pittsburgh's lead TE but is a TD-reliant fantasy play. The biggest boost goes to WR Eli Rogers, who averaged 5.4 targets per game without Green vs. 4.0 with him.
Steelers TE Ladarius Green did not practice on Friday and remains in the concussion protocol, HC Mike Tomlin said. That sure sounds like a setback after Green was a full participant on both Wednesday and Thursday. He now looks like a long shot to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. That leaves Jesse James as Pittsburgh's lead TE and should also mean a target boost for WR Eli Rogers.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin admitted Tuesday that QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown "probably" won't play against the Browns this weekend. If they do, it won't be for more than a series or 2 in the meaningless game. None of the 3 should be in Week 17 fantasy lineups. Landry Jones figures to start at QB with Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton and Jesse James as his top 3 weapons. Rogers and James are lower-end fantasy options. We'll be curious to find out whether DeAngelo Williams will get a hefty workload. He'd be a strong fantasy play against a bad Cleveland run defense. Fitzgerald Toussaint is Pittsburgh's other option at RB.
Steelers WR Sammie Coates (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He hurt that hammy on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. Coates' absence will mean a few extra targets to go around to Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and possibly Eli Rogers.
The forecast for today's Steelers-Browns game calls for a 30% chance of snow with winds of 27-29 mph and gusts up to 40. That wind is a significant concern. We'd avoid both kickers and downgrade the passing games, especially the guys who rely on downfield stuff. Bang it here for updated projections for the Steelers and Browns.
Steelers WR Sammie Coates (finger) sat out the first 2 practices of the week but put in a full workout on Friday. He’s listed as questionable but is fully expected to play this weekend. He still has stitches in that lacerated finger, so he might be even more drop-prone than usual But there remains big upside vs. a porous Dolphins secondary. WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is out for Week 6, while WR Eli Rogers (toe) is back and figures to handle slot duties.
Steelers WR Eli Rogers (toe) put in a full practice on Wednesday, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. Rogers saw 15 targets across the season's first 3 games. But that came before Le'Veon Bell's return and Sammie Coates' emergence. We'll see exactly what type of role Rogers returns to, but he shouldn't be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin on Tuesday ruled WR Eli Rogers (toe) out for this weekend's game against the Jets. The fact that he was ruled out so early in the week means he's not close to a return. Rogers can be dropped in all leagues. Sammie Coates has emerged as Pittsburgh's #2 WR, with Markus Wheaton as the #3 and Darrius Heyward-Bey #4.
Steelers WR Eli Rogers (toe) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves Sammie Coates, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey as the #2 through #4 WRs. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin on Tuesday deemed WR Eli Rogers "very questionable" for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rogers left the Week 3 loss to Philly early with a toe injury. His absence would leave more room for WRs Markus Wheaton, Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey to stay on the field, though none of those 3 has displayed any reason for fantasy intrigue.
The Steelers have ruled WR Eli Rogers out for the rest of their Week 3 game against the Eagles. He suffered a toe injury on his left foot. We'll keep an eye on his status for Week 4. Rogers' absence could leave more playing time for WR Markus Wheaton.
Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. It’s another opportunity for WR Sammie Coates, although we wouldn’t use him in fantasy. WR Eli Rogers and TE Jesse James are the best bets to finish 2nd and 3rd on the team in targets this week.
