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.

The Steelers have activated OLB Bud Dupree from the PUP list. A groin injury cost him the 1st 9 games, but the 2nd-year pass rusher is on the active roster for Sunday's trip to Cleveland. We'll see what kind of role he's coming back to, though he'll likely work into a rotation. Dupree carries more pass-rushing upside than any other OLB on Pittsburgh's roster but is more of a long-term IDP option than a strong candidate for 2016 value.

The Steelers chose OLB Bud Dupree with the 22nd pick of the NFL Draft. Pittsburgh needs the help on the edge, with Jason Worilds retired and Jarvis Jones disappointing so far. Dupree clearly has the physical skills but didn't quite match his production to his talent at Kentucky. The Steelers have a history of bringing rookies along slowly, which might work in Dupree's favor long term. We'll see whether he can significantly impact the 2015 defense. He's barely on the fringes of the IDP radar for the coming season.
