| Long on talent and (up till now) short on common sense, the mercurial Bryant returns from his one-year drug related exile. Bryant is nothing short of a game-breaking talent, and the time away from the game has apparently cleared his head, and steeled his focus to football. He's the rare receiver in the back end of the WR2 area that can win you games, and I expect this is the sort of value he'll provide to fantasy owners this season. He's always been a big part of the offense when he's been active, and his 6'5" frame makes him Pittsburgh's best option in the red zone. Bryant has a shot to approach 10-plus touchdowns in this offense, and that's why he's much more valuable in standard leagues as a strong WR2. I worry sometimes about his roller coaster numbers, but the upside is too much to ignore for long as your drafts roll along.
|George Iloka, JuJu Smith-Schuster suspended|
Each player suspended one game for hits in brutal MNF contest

|The league suspended Pittsburgh receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cincinnati safety George Iloka each for one game without pay for violations of safety-related playing rules.
Both players are appealing the ban, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan handed down the punishments. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Smith-Schuster has been a great second receiver for the Steelers this season, but it appears as though Martavis Bryant could get more targets if the appeal hearing upholds his suspension for Week 14.
| Antonio Brown misses practice Saturday|
Availability for Monday night in question

|Antonio Brown injury not considered major but toe issues can be tricky - didn’t practice for second straight day, teammate confirmed. Steelers hopeful Brown plays but are preparing in case he doesn’t - Martavis Bryant would stay in his role while JuJu/DHB/Justin Hunter could split AB’s role (Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brown missed practice on Friday and then again Saturday raising questions for his availability on Monday night against the Bengals. If he sits, it sounds like the Steelers will rotate Darrius Heyward-Bey and Justin Hunter into the mix. JuJu Smith-Schuster is expected to play after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring injury.
| JuJu Smith-Schuster out for Week 12|

|JuJu Smith-Schuster will not play vs Packers cause of hamstring injury (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: The Steelers play Sunday night against the Packers and with Schuster out, Martavis Bryant should see his snap count rise. Bryant has seen 9 total targets in the last two weeks. The Packers have given up the 9th most fantasy points to wide receivers.
