Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Ebron has caught at least five passes in three of the last four games and appears to have earned a bigger role in the passing game. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster had a slow start to the season but is coming off his best game in Week 7. He should be a popular target for Ben Roethlisberger against the Baltimore Ravens and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been the main option in the passing game when healthy and should see plenty of targets again this week. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has thrown at least two touchdowns in five of the six games this season but is also coming off a three-interception performance in Week 7. He should be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but is a risky starting option in standard leagues because of the matchup.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Ebron is in any danger of missing the Week 8 game. He has been targeted at least six times in three of the last four games and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster received a season-high 14 targets last week and finished with a season-high 85 yards.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is coming off his worst game of the season where he threw three interceptions and will be facing one of the top defenses in the NFL in Week 8. Fantasy players in most leagues may be able to find better options and can avoid Roethlisberger because of the matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Chase Claypool posted just one reception for minus-2 yards on his only target and he fumbled in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron ended up with six receptions for 50 yards on eight targets in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: The catch total was Ebron's highest of the season, but it was just the second time he has gone for 50 or more yards. Ebron also has only one scoring through six outings. He remains more of a TE2 heading into Week 8 in Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson posted nine receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns on a game-high 15 targets in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Johnson entered the day with one catch, minus-2 yards and nine rushing yards across his past two games, so don't get carried away and add him across the board. His production has been rather inconsistent, making him a risky play in many fantasy formats heading into Week 8 in Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster ended up with nine receptions, a team-high 85 yards and 14 targets in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster's yardage total was easily his best, as he hadn't had six grabs for 69 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Giants. He also has four or more grabs in five of his six games. Smith-Schuster remains a decent low-end WR2 in PPR leagues, and more of a WR3 in standard fantasy play heading into Week 8 in Baltimore.

Huddle Up: Conner has posted 100 or more total scrimmage yards in four of the past five outings. He remains a legitimate low-end RB1 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 8 in Baltimore. He had 55 yards and a touchdown in his only meeting with the Ravens last season on Oct. 6, 2019.

Huddle Up: Big Ben has threw for two or more touchdowns in five of his six outings, and his yardage total was the highest since Week 2. He also had the three picks after tossing just one in his first five contests. He remains more of a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Baltimore in Week 8.

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.
