Steelers trade WR Martavis Bryant to the Raiders

We've heard rumblings before of the Steelers wanting to trade WR Martavis Bryant and they finally pulled the trigger during the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, sending him to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round pick (79th overall).

Fantasy Impact: 

The emergence of JuJu Smith-Schuster (58 catches, 917 yards, 7 TDs) last season made Bryant expendable. Bryant will likely compete with Seth Roberts for the third receiver role in Oakland. When on his game, Bryant, who won't turn 27 until December, has all the potential in the world to be an impact receiver on the field and for your fantasy roster—he scored 14 combined TDs in his first two seasons—but his on-field presence is a question mark after missing the entire 2016 season due to suspension. Raiders QB Derek Carr has averaged 561 pass attempts in his four-year career, so it's a great landing spot for Bryant.
