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 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.

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.

The forecast for today's Steelers-Bills game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and winds of 10-15 mph. Those certainly aren't ideal conditions for the passing and kicking games, but it's also not enough for us to lower the projections for anyone involved. Use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked guys.

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.

The Steelers have ruled LB Ryan Shazier (knee) and S Robert Golden (hamstring) out for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.
