Martavis Bryant was cleared by the NFL to practice and play in preseason games on the eve of the preseason opener against the Giants on Aug. 11, and he has been installed as the Steelers starting receiver opposite Antonio Brown on this most recent depth chart.
Also, Sammie Coates was activated from the physically unable to perform list today, which clears him to resume all on-field football activities with the team, and he is listed as the No. 2 receiver behind Brown.
While depth charts this time of year don't always mean a whole lot, it's good news for owners Bryant is plugged in as the team's WR2. We think he's worth the risk. In 24 career games, including the postseason, Bryant has averaged 4.0 receptions for 65 yards and 0.67 touchdowns, or 14.5 PPG (PPR). That would have been good enough to finish as the #13 WR in 2016, ahead of Jarvis Landry and Julian Edelman.

Week 3 at Chicago Bears
Antonio Brown had 5 catches for 62 yards on 10 targets last week after catching all 11 of his targets in Week 1. His numbers would have been better if not for a pass interference penalty on Xavier Rhodes as Brown blew past him on a deep ball. There isn't a player capable of covering him on Chicago's roster and the Bears have allowed 25 WR receptions in their first two games for 299 yards and a score. Brown will add to that total this week and should be used as a WR1.
