Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Johnson should be back in the starting lineup after missing the last game because of the injury. He was targeted 23 times in the first two games but left the last two games because of injuries. He should be one of the main options in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has not posted the same great passing numbers as he did in the past, but he has thrown at least two touchdowns in four of the five games this season. He will be facing a tough Tennessee Titans defense but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is off to a slow start but still leads the team with 28 targets this season. He will receive a handful of targets against the Tennessee Titans and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Johnson appears to be on track to play in the Week 7 game as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He has been a popular target for Ben Roethlisberger when healthy and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is active.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is in no danger in missing the Week 7 game, but he has not been a big part of the passing game over the last few games. He should still see some targets this week and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger threw for a season-low 162 yards last week but has thrown 11 touchdowns and only one interception in five games. He will be facing a good Tennessee Titans defense this week but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or bye week replacement in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) will practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Johnson has not practiced on Wednesday in a while due to toe and back ailments, which have subsided. He got off to a quick start, but those injuries have hampered him. He could be a flex option against the Tennessee Titans.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught two of his four targets for six yards in a 38-7 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Huddle Up: His receiving numbers have declined in every game since a 69-yard effort in the opener, and with Chase Claypool emerging as a dynamic weapon, fantasy owners should only be expecting WR3 production out of Smith-Schuster at this point.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Chase Claypool caught all four of his targets for a team-high 74 yards and rushed twice for seven yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Huddle Up: After his four-touchdown performance in Week 5, Claypool led the team in receiving for the second straight game and added his second rushing score of the year. The rookie's big-play ability and growing role make him a high-upside flex option ahead of a Week 7 meeting with the Bengals.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner rushed 20 times for 101 yards and a touchdown and added a one-yard reception in a 38-7 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Conner topped 100 yards for the third time in his last four contests and extended his touchdown streak to four games. He has been a workhorse for the Pittsburgh running attack, and he should be a strong RB2 against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Ebron has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks and may see a similar workload with Diontae Johnson out of the lineup. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end or a bye week replacement in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has thrown 10 touchdowns and one interception in four games this season and probably will continue with the short passes to move down the field. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: It appears fantasy owners will have another good reason to put Chase Claypool in their lineups. The rookie has seen a significant increase in his playing time with Johnson leaving early due to injuries in Pittsburgh's last two games, and most of the world remembers what he did in Week 5. Johnson was able to get in a limited practice Thursday, so there's a bit of reason for optimism that he'll be able to return in Week 7.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Ebron has recorded 10 catches in the last two games and appears to have solid chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger. He can be a possible bye week replacement this week or a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has been targeted 24 times in four games this season but has been overshadowed by Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool. He will continue to be an important part of the passing game moving forward and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (hand) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Ebron is in any danger of missing the Week 6 game. Ebron has been targeted at least five times in each of the last three games but has 50 or more yards in only one of those games. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: It appears like Smith-Schuster is receiving Wednesdays off so he can rest his knee, but he will be ready to play in Week 6. He is coming off a disappointing Week 5 performance but is still averaging six targets a game. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Johnson suffered the injury in the last game, but head coach Mike Tomlin indicated Johnson has a chance to play in Week 6. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because he can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught four of his five targets for 28 yards in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has caught at least four passes in all four games, but he has been held under 50 receiving yards in three straight. Even with Ben Roethlisberger back under center, he looks more like a WR3 than the WR1 he was a couple of years ago.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron caught five of his six targets for 43 yards in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Ebron isn't putting up huge numbers, but he has caught five passes in back-to-back games and has topped 40 yards in three straight. He could be a low-end TE1 in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner rushed 15 times for 44 yards and a touchdown and caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Conner couldn't top 100 yards for the third straight game, but he has found the end zone in three straight. He continues to receive a bulk of the touches in the backfield, and he is locked in as a volume-based RB2.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Chase Claypool caught seven of his 11 targets for 110 yards and three touchdowns and rushed three times for six yards and another score in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Claypool entered the game with nine targets on the year, but he erupted after Diontae Johnson left with a back injury. Regardless of Johnson's status moving forward, Claypool is probably worth scooping up after his performance in Week 5.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of his 34 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
