Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, but is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Conner appears to be on track to play in the Week 15 game, but fantasy players need to check the inactive list to make sure. He will be facing a good Buffalo Bills defense but can still be a No. 2 running back if he receives his normal workload.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Samuels likely will see a handful of touches this week but may be more involved in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 15.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster aggravated his injury earlier in the week and will miss at least one more game. James Washington and Diontae Johnson will continue to be the main options in the passing game. Washington can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues, while Johnson could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 15 after he aggravated his knee injury in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: It might be a little early for this, but aggravating the original injury that has kept him out so long could spell the end of his regular season. James Washington has been a borderline WR1 over the last five weeks, and he'll be a solid WR2 against the Buffalo Bills.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: McDonald will need to be cleared by the doctors before he is allowed to play, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He probably can be benched in most fantasy leagues even if he plays since he has not been a big part of the passing game.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 14, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Samuels only had nine touches, and James Conner (shoulder) is on the mend. The entire backfield will need monitoring, and Benny Snell could wind up being an RB2 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is expected to practice at some point this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) is expected to practice at some point this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Conner had yet to receive clearance for contact for Week 14, and that figures to be a formality. Jaylen Samuels (groin) is also banged up, and Benny Snell could be a major factor against the Buffalo Bills. Watch this trio this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in a 23-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.
Huddle Up: As a receiver who thrives on the deep ball, Washington is going to deliver the occasional dud. With the fantasy playoffs set to begin, you may want to opt for a steadier option, especially with Pittsburgh facing a tough Buffalo defense in Week 15.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson caught six passes for 60 yards and touchdown, returned a punt for touchdown and rushed once for 16 yards in a 23-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Johnson erupted after a few quiet weeks, and despite some big-play upside, he will be tough to trust with the fantasy playoffs about to begin in most leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed 16 times for 41 yards in a 23-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Snell once again led the Pittsburgh backfield, but he was unable to find much running room. Early indications are that James Conner will return in Week 15, but even if Snell draws another start, he will be no more than a flex option against a stout Buffalo defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington has had a reception of 30-plus yards in four of the last five games and has recorded at least 90 receiving yards and a touchdown in three of the last four games.
Huddle Up: Despite Pittsburgh's quarterback carousel, Washington has emerged as a dangerous deep threat. He's a big-play dependent but high-upside WR3 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
