Steelers WR Martavis Bryant works with first team

Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

Martavis Bryant was back working with the first-team offense Monday when the Steelers resumed practice after a four-day break on their bye.

The issue is whether the embattled wide receiver will be in that same spot Sunday when the Steelers open the second half of their season at the Indianapolis Colts.

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.

“I'm pretty sure I'm going to be out there,” Bryant said. “It's a long week. It's only Monday. I'll come back in here Wednesday, get the game plan and go from there.”

Fantasy Impact:

It appears Bryant is looking to make a fresh start, but that remains to be seen. He'll remain risky for fantasy lineups until he shows more. Smith-Schuster still appears to be a safer play.

Colts QB Andrew Luck put on Injured Reserve

Indianpolis Colts - [Full Article]

The Colts placed QB Andrew Luck on injured reserve today, effectively ending his 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck has missed every game this season thus far and now will miss the rest of the season. Jacoby Brissett is currently the No. 14 ranked fantasy QB on this season in total points, but his 13.4 PPG average slides him down to the No. 22 ranked QB. In plus matchups, Brissett can put up points (three games of 15+ points this season), putting him on the streaming radar in 1-QB leagues and as a QB2 option in 2-QB or Superflex leagues. And our rest-of-season rankings reflect that, as we have him ranked as our No. 23 QB the rest of the way.
