Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Football News 2019

The Steelers have moved up from 20th to 10th in the 1st round of the NFL Draft to select LB Devin Bush. The former Michigan LB delivered the class' 2nd-best speed score at the position (121.5) and ranked 8th in the class in 2018 sacks per game (0.38). Bush supplied just 44 and 41 solo tackles over 2 seasons as a starter. He should fight for a starting job right away at a position where the Steelers' top 2 played 71% and 54% of the snaps last season. Pittsburgh also added former Ram Mark Barron in free agency.

Steelers ILB Vince Williams (toe) is inactive for today's game against the Bengals, as expected. He entered the day doubtful.

Steelers ILB Vince Williams (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's finale against the Bengals. That likely means more playing time for L.J. Fort, but no Pittsburgh ILB has given us consistent enough playing time to be worth trusting in IDP lineups this week.

The Steelers have ruled DE Stephon Tuitt out for Sunday's game at Jacksonville with an elbow injury. We'll see about his availability for the Week 12 trip to Denver.

Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) is set to play Sunday against the Browns after sitting out the past 4 games. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that rookie Terrell Edmunds will retain his starting job, so we'll see just how big a role Burnett finds.

As expected, Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) and LB Vince Williams (hamstring) are inactive for today's game against the Falcons. Each player entered the day doubtful. Burnett's absence means a 3rd straight start for rookie S Terrell Edmunds. Anthony Chickillo looks likeliest to fill in for Williams, though Tyler Matakevich could also enter the picture.

Steelers LB Vince Williams is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons after missing practice all week with a hamstring injury.

Steelers S Morgan Burnett is inactive for tonight’s game because of a groin injury.

Steelers DE Cameron Heyward (knee) and CB Artie Burns (toe) are active for today's game against the Chiefs. Each entered the day as questionable but is fine to use as you normally would in IDP leagues.

The Steelers picked Virginia Tech S Terrell Edmunds with the 28th pick in Round 1 of the NFL Draft. Edmunds posted a 97th percentile SPARQ score in predraft testing and flashed his versatility by playing multiple positions over his 3-year college career. NFL Network's Mike Mayock and David Shaw both called him "physical," while the broadcast touted his ability to cover TEs. There's room for Edmunds to start soon in Pittsburgh.

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps) is officially questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago. But after a limited workout Wednesday, he returned to full participation Thursday and Friday. We'd bet on Tuitt playing after missing Week 2 (and all but the 1st series in the opener) but will confirm his status Sunday morning.

The Steelers have ruled OLB T.J. Watt out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Watt said after leaving the Vikings game early that his groin injury wasn't serious, but it looks more significant than he let on.

Steelers OLB T.J. Watt suffered a groin injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings. He said afterward that he doesn't think it's bad and isn't worried but that we'll know more over the next day or 2, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt is out for today's game against the Vikings. Pittsburgh had hoped he'd be able to play after suffering a biceps injury in Week 1. The questionable tag indicates Tuitt has a solid chance of returning for Week 3.

The Steelers consider DE Stephon Tuitt "week to week" with a left biceps injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's fairly good news, considering the team reportedly feared Sunday night that Tuitt tore the muscle. We'll see if the recently extended DE can make it back for Week 3.

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Browns with a left arm injury. He did not return. HC Mike Tomlin called it a biceps injury after the game. Tuitt will seek further evaluation Sunday night or Monday. We'll await the official diagnosis.

11:09am EDT 9/10/17

Steelers OLB Bud Dupree is out for today's opener against the Browns. He suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday's practice and then missed Friday's workout. Anthony Chickillo and James Harrison should take over the vacated snaps, with T.J. Watt starting on the other side. The Pittsburgh team D would present more sack upside with a healthy Dupree, but losing him doesn't significantly alter a positive fantasy outlook against Cleveland rookie QB Deshone Kizer.

Steelers OLB Bud Dupree is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday's practice and then missed Friday's workout. His backup, Anthony Chickillo, said he expects Dupree to be able to play Sunday. We'll check his status when the inactives come out.
