Martavis Bryant will get 'every opportunity' to be No. 2 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/19/2015) The Steelers will give second-year pro Martavis Bryant "every opportunity this summer to claim the No. 2 receiver spot" opposite superstar Antonio Brown, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley said what Bryant accomplished in the second half of last season was a "big thing."

“We are looking for him to come in and make a push against Markus Wheaton for that No. 2 spot and continue to give us big-time production, specifically in the red area where a big target like that can make a big impact,” Haley said.

A fourth-round pick out of Clemson, Bryant was inactive the first six games before catching six touchdowns in the first four games he played. He finished with 26 catches for 549 yards and eight scores, adding five grabs for 61 yards and a touchdown in the playoff loss to Baltimore.

“When young guys come in at the receiver position and contribute early like he did, it is a big thing,” Haley said. “He took a lot of pressure off Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton … he really had a big impact on our offense. He is a guy we are going to work real hard throughout the offseason and, like all young players, he should make progress from year one to year two.”

Wheaton caught 53 passes for 644 yards and two scores while playing every game.


Steelers WR Martavis Bryant: 'The sky is the limit'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/14/2015) Inactive for the first six games, Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant finished with 26 catches for 549 yards and eight touchdowns. The 6-4, 211-pounder proved to be a red-zone threat and a deep threat, averaging a whopping 21.1 yards per catch.

Bryant told the team's website he'll work out in Los Angeles for the early part of the offseason, then spend a month training with teammate Antonio Brown in Florida. 

“I want to be consistent,” Bryant said. “I want to put a great year together next year. They will be keying on me next year. They know what I am able to do. I have to take the offseason and work on my craft to get better with some of the things that will give me an advantage next year.

“The sky is the limit as long as I continue to work. I am not going to set a bar for myself.”


Martavis Bryant pulls in five catches and touchdown in loss to Ravens


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 30-17 loss to the Ravens Saturday.

Bryant caught a fade on the goal line from six yards out after Pittsburgh was called for a false start on the 1-yard line. 

It was Bryant's first game over 50 yards receiving since Dec. 7 when he had 109 yards against the Bengals.


Steelers WR Martavis Bryant catches TD in Week 17 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had just one catch on two targets Sunday but scored a 21-yard touchdown in his team's 27-17 win over the Bengals in Week 17.

Bryant was targeted on a screen pass in the second quarter and split his blockers en route to an easy score on his only catch of the night. He wraps up his rookie season with 26 receptions, 549 yards and eight touchdowns. Bryant will match up with the Ravens in the first round of the playoffs Saturday.


Martavis Bryant manages just one catch in Pittsburgh's win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had just one catch for 44 yards in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City. 

Bryant's only catch came in the first quarter when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger faked the run and threw a fade to the receiver on the right side.

This is Bryant's second consecutive week under 50 yards receiving.

Bryant will look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Bengals. He had four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in their last game.


Trio of Steelers make strong contributions to Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) As usual, no Steelers receiver could match what Antonio Brown produced Sunday against Atlanta. But a trio certainly helped the team to victory.

The best of the bunch were tight end Heath Miller, whose 26-yard snag late in the third quarter helped him finish with 68 yards on four receptions, and wideout Markus Wheaton, who made good on all five targets for 66 yards. Martavis Bryant pitched in with three catches for 31 yards.


Martavis Bryant tough to rely on in Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant made the most of his chances in Week 14, but he was still third among the team's wide receivers in snaps in the win over the Bengals.

Bryant played 24 snaps, just two more than Lance Moore, who had just one catch. Bryant was second on the team with 109 yards, the majority of which came on a 94-yard touchdown, however, he played 17 fewer snaps than Markus Wheaton, who was second among the team's receivers in that regard.

Bryant's upside is incredible, given his big-play ability. However, if he doesn't hit on a long touchdown, it's awfully hard to rely on him, given his role. The Steelers have a great matchup on the way in Week 15 against the Falcons, but Antonio Brown is the only player with a consistent enough role to feel comfortable relying on. 


Martavis Bryant gets loose again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was on his way to another pedestrian performance in Week 14, but he showed his big-play ability yet again in a 42-21 win over the Bengals.

Bryant, who had just 34 yards in his previous two games combined, was a non-factor for much of Sunday's game. He had three receptions for just 15 yards deep into the fourth quarter, before Ben Roethlisberger found him with a perfectly-thrown deep ball that Bryant took for 94 yards and a touchdown, his seventh in as many games.

Bryant was unstoppable in the first four games of his career, hauling in six touchdowns in that span. He has clearly established himself as the team's primary big-play threat, which naturally makes him a risky play in any given week. However, he does have double digits in Fantasy points in five of seven career games, which makes him hard to ignore.

Bryant will be prone to disappearing from time to time, as his previous two games showed. However, if you need to roll the dice down the stretch and the Steelers have a good matchup, the rapport he has shown with Roethlisberger might make Bryant worth a shot. 


Steelers' Martavis Bryant explodes for 109 yards in win Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant bounced back after two straight games under 30 receiving yards, and had four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bengals. 

With Pittsburgh up 28-21, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went for the kill shot. After faking the run, Ben floated the ball deep to Bryant who got underneath it and took it the rest of the way for a 94-yard touchdown. It was the longest of Bryant's brief career. 

Bryant has 453 yards and seven touchdowns this year. 

Pittsburgh will take on Atlanta in Week 15. 


Martavis Bryant crashes back to Earth


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant burst onto the scene with six touchdowns in his first four NFL games, but put together his second subpar performance in a row in a 35-32 loss to the Saints in Week 13.

Bryant was targeted just four times Sunday, and had just one reception for 23 yards, which is actually an improvement on his showing in the team's previous game. Bryant had just 11 receptions in Week 11 before the bye, after averaging 77.5 yards per game in the first four.

Bryant was scoring at an unsustainable rate, but it has been surprising to see how ineffective he has been since his hot start. At this point, his big-play potential remains tantalizing, but inconsistency makes Bryant little more than a flier for deeper Fantasy leagues down the stretch. 


Two questionable, two out for Steelers in Week 13


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert and linebacker Ryan Shazier have both been designated as questionable for the Sunday game against New Orleans. Meanwhile cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb) and nose tackle Steve McLendon have been ruled out.

The rest of those placed on the Friday injury report are probable. That group includes wide receiver Martavis Bryant (illness), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring).


Frustrating night for Steelers WR Martavis Bryant


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/17/2014) Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant was targeted in the end zone three times Monday night at Tennessee, but he was unable to corral any of them. He finished with two catches for 11 yards.

Bryant broke loose in the first quarter for what could have been an easy touchdown, but Ben Roethlisberger floated the ball too high and too late. The pass was broken up. Roethlisberger then overthrew Bryant on an end-zone fade.

Finally, Bryant had a chance to score on a post route. He couldn't haul in the throw in tight coverage.

Bryant, who had six touchdowns in his previous four games, is on a bye Week 12.


Martavis Bryant keeps on cooking


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant continues to be a touchdown machine, as he scored for the fourth straight game to open his career in Week 10 against the Jets.

Coming off a pair of two-touchdown games, Bryant had to have been disappointed to only score once Sunday. However, he put together his most complete game yet, hauling in four passes for a career-best 143 yards, including an 80-yard score, his longest yet.

Bryant has introduced a new element to the team's offense since making his debut, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has quickly gotten on the same page as him. Eventually, he will fail to find the end zone, so seeing him produce otherwise was a good sign Sunday. At this point, he should be viewed as a high-upside option at wide-receiver moving forward, though still a somewhat risky one heading into Week 11 against the Titans. 


Steelers WR Bryant has biggest game of young career Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) It takes a lot to outshine Antonio Brown, but that's what fellow Steelers receiver Martavis Bryant did Sunday in a loss to the host Jets.

Bryant caught four passes for a game-high 143 yards and made things interesting by breaking free with 1:16 remaining for an 80-yard touchdown, giving him at least one in each of the last six games. Not bad considering he was held without a reception in the first half.

Now with 310 yards receiving in four games, Bryant will try to take his momentum and run with it when the Steelers play at Tennessee next Monday night.


Martavis Bryant may have another big game in him


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/6/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been active for three games this season and scored a touchdown in every one, including two in each of the last two. But quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also threw for six touchdowns in each of those two -- a pace he obviously can't sustain. 

For as much throwing as Roethlisberger has done the last two weeks, Bryant has gotten a total of 12 targets, averaging 4.0 catches for 63.5 yards during that span, which means he's not so productive apart from the touchdowns. So his viability for Week 10 at the Jets really comes down to how much you like Roethlisberger's chances.

I'll speak for myself: I like them a lot. I've been as skeptical as anyone of Roethlisberger's ability to put up stud numbers every week, but this is a tailor-made matchup for him. The Jets have allowed an NFL-high 24 touchdown passes, six more than any other team, while recording an NFL-low one interception, two fewer than any other team. As you might expect, they've given up the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Of course, Bryant isn't a quarterback, and they've only given up the 11th-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. But it stands to reason that if Roethlisberger has a good game, so will what has become one of his preferred red-zone targets.


Can Martavis Bryant keep it up?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant scored two touchdowns for the second straight game Week 9 against Baltimore, giving him five touchdowns since the Steelers first activated him in Week 7. That's a stud, right?

Gosh, I don't know. If he keeps it up, sure, but as infrequently as he gets the ball, what reason do we have to believe he will?

His incredible run coincides with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's even more incredible run -- in case you haven't heard, he's thrown for six touchdowns in back-to-back games -- so presumably, when Roethlisberger's scoring slows to something more sustainable, so will Bryant's.

And what will be left for him then? Even with all the touchdowns, he's gone for less than 50 yards in two of his three games, including Week 9. He's averaged 3.3 catches on 5.7 targets. Playing alongside ball hawk Antonio Brown, he's just not very productive, apart from the touchdowns. It kind of reminds me of the Cowboys' Terrance Williams over the first five weeks, when he had five touchdowns. With only one in four games since, those who bought into him are feeling a bit cheated.

Of course, there is that possibility that Roethlisberger's scoring doesn't slow to something more sustainable and that he's on the verge of joining Peyton Manning in Fantasy superstardom, but I tend to reject that idea given his past inconsistencies.


Steelers WR Martavis Bryant scores twice in Week 9 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Steelers rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught three of his five targets for 44 yards and two touchdowns in his team's 43-23 win over the Ravens in Week 9.

Bryant has picked the perfect time to ascend to threat status in the passing game, as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 12 touchdowns in a two-game stretch. Four of those scores have gone to the rookie, who made a nice play on the ball while falling down in the second quarter for his first touchdown of the night before grabbing a pass just outside the goal line in the fourth quarter and backing into the end zone. In just three games, Bryant has managed 10 catches, 167 yards and five touchdowns. His next test will come against the Jets in Week 10.


Martavis Bryant outshines Markus Wheaton again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Granted, both had their moments on a day when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger set franchise records with 522 yards and six touchdowns, but Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was the preferred target to Markus Wheaton again Week 8 against Indianapolis.

Bryant, a rookie who didn't even play the first six weeks, caught five passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a 52-yard bomb to set up another score in the second quarter. Wheaton, who has been a starter for much of the season, also caught five passes, but for 56 yards and one touchdown.

Bryant got seven targets to Wheaton's five, taking the lead for a second straight week. Of course, the comparison between Week 8 and Week 7 isn't entirely fair. In Week 7, Bryant had two catches for 40 yards and a touchdown, and Wheaton went without a catch on two targets.

So even if Bryant seems to be pulling ahead, it may not be a big deal in Fantasy. Roethlisberger won't for 522 yards every week, after all, and Antonio Brown is still the No. 1 guy in Pittsburgh. But in leagues with more than 12 teams, Bryant's three touchdowns in two games have earned him a look.


Steelers WR Martavis Bryant breaks out with big game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant enjoyed one heck of a breakout game Sunday against Indianapolis. He entered with two catches on the season and left with seven.

Bryant caught five passes for 83 yards. More impressive were the his touchdowns - a 5-yarder on the second play of the second quarter and a 2-yarder early in the third. His lone mistake was a drop midway through the third on a pass he might have taken to the house.

He will continue to seek growth when the Ravens come to town for a Sunday night game in Week 9.


Martavis Bryant a threat to Markus Wheaton


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/21/2014) Wide receiver Markus Wheaton didn't impress through the first six weeks of the season, so the Steelers saw fit to give someone else a chance Week 7 against Houston. Active for the first time this season, Martavis Bryant had as productive a day as any pass catcher not named Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell, hauling in two passes for 40 yards, including a 35-yarder in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. His five targets were third-most on the team, and no one after him had more than two.

That includes Wheaton, who was among those with two targets, going without a catch. He actually played 48 percent of the Steelers' snaps compared to Bryant's 34 percent, which makes his lack of production even more discouraging. Considering he's been up around 80 percent most of the year, he may be in danger of being overtaken.

Of course, Wheaton probably wouldn't disappear completely, and because Antonio Brown is still the go-to guy in the Steelers passing game, Bryant probably wouldn't have the opportunity for big numbers in his place. But in leagues deep enough that Wheaton is relevant, Bryant is now, too.


Steelers WR Martavis Bryant makes immediate impact


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/21/2014) Getting his first NFL action Monday, Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant made his presence felt in the second quarter. He ran past Texans rookie corner Andre Hal and hauled in a 35-yard touchdown, dragging his left toe for the score.

Bryant caught another 5-yard pass later, giving him two catches on five targets for 40 yards. He likely earned more playing time Week 8 against the Colts.


Report: Martavis Bryant to debut on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/20/2014) Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant will make his NFL debut on Monday Night Football against the Texans, reports ESPN. The fourth-round pick has been slow to develop and thus hasn't seen the field yet. But at 6-foot-4, he could prove useful in the red zone.

Steelers release inactive list with three injured players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) As expected, linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and strong safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) are all on the injured list released Sunday by the Steelers for their clash in Cleveland.

Their healthy scratches are quarterback Landry Jones, wideout Martavis Bryant, nose tackle Daniel McCullers and tackle Chris Hubbard.


Report: Steelers rookie Martavis Bryant could debut Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant could be active for the Steelers for the first time this season Sunday in Cleveland, per Steelers Depot, which is further speculating that he would be used sparingly and primarily in red zone situations.

Bryant played 85 snaps in the preseason and caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown.


Steelers list Week 5 inactives


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback Ike Taylor, wide receiver Martavis Bryant, quarterback Landry Jones, defensive tackle Dan McCullers, offensive lineman Wesley Johnson and guard Chris Hubbard were all ruled inactive Week 5 at Jacksonville.
