Suisham was pretty reliable last season in the Steel City. He finished the year 30-for-32 on field goals and even added 39 extra points. Pittsburgh’s offense will be much more productive in 2014, and as a result, Suisham will get plenty of work around the red zone. View him as a low-end kicker in leagues with over eight owners.

4. WR Markus Wheaton

Wheaton will be the new starting wideout with Emmanuel Sanders now in Denver, which will cause his fantasy value to skyrocket. The wideout has 4.4 speed and can be another speedster to add to this offense. Wheaton won't be worth reaching for this season, but he will be a decent WR4 to gamble on in deeper formats.

3. QB Ben Roethlisberger

Roethlisberger was grossly undervalued last season, but he still finished with respectable numbers. He posted 4,200 yards and 28 touchdowns, including one passing TD in every single game. Big Ben won't put up Drew Brees numbers (5,000 yards/40 TDs), but there is no reason to think he won't finish as a top-10 QB once again this fall.

2. RB Le’Veon Bell

Bell dealt with a nagging foot injury throughout the year and suffered a concussion at the end in one of the final weeks. Bell was healthy by the end of the year, though, and really started turning heads. He scored a rushing TD in each of the final three games and averaged a staggering 108.3 all-purpose (88 rushing/ 20.3 receiving) yards per contest. Bell may come with some injury concern, but he has proven that he can be a low-end RB1.

1. WR Antonio Brown

Brown embraced the number one role in Pittsburgh last season, as he caught 110 passes for 1,499 receiving yards. Brown will flirt with another 100-reception campaign this season and will live up to his price tag as a top-10 fantasy wide receiver this fall.
