|Martavis Bryant back working with first team|
Steelers giving embattled WR prime reps in practice this week.
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 7, 11:10 am
|Martavis Bryant was back working with the first-team offense Monday when the Steelers resumed practice after a four-day break on their bye.
After being benched against the Detroit Lions on Oct. 29 because of his controversial social media posts, Bryant is looking for a chance to rejoin his teammates on the field. He has been given no indication the benching will extend past that one game. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)|
FFToday's Take: You can go ahead and give Bryant a look as a WR3/4 or flex in super-deep formats and large-field GPPs in DFS in a great match-up with Indy, but don't be surprised if JuJu Smith-Schuster out-snaps him and outperforms him the rest of the way in 2017. In standard leagues, JSS is the better play.
|Steelers bench Martavis Bryant for Week 8|
Bryant seeking trade
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 25, 3:00 pm
|The Pittsburgh Steelers have benched Martavis Bryant for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions over his use of social media, the receiver said. Bryant is no longer hiding from his frustration with the Steelers offense, telling reporters after that session that he's frustrated but will continue to play hard.
"I'm not going to hide how I feel," Bryant said. "What happened has happened." (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Bryant won't be getting his in Week 8, instead he'll watch from the sidelines as JuJu Smith-Schuster continues to receive more playing time. Bryant has been vocal in social media about his desire to be traded.

Disgruntled Steelers WR wants out of Pitsburgh
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 24, 11:11 am
|ESPN's Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) on Twitter: "#Steelers WR Martavis Bryant to me: "If they don’t try to include me more and continue to do the same thing, then I want out period."
"I just want to be happy..I would like for it to be here, but if not then oh well. Just got to move on."
"I’m not being selfish, it’s just I want to help contribute & I want to be the best player that I can be." (Twitter/ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Braynt's comments aren't surprising, considering he trashed fellow Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on Instagram before attempting to walk those comments back later in the day. At this point, Bryant looks headed for another team or a spate on "inactive" statuses as the Steelers try to determine the best course of action.
