Steelers WR Martavis Bryant struggles versus Giants

Rookie WR Martavis Bryant recorded a drop, a muffed punt, and a fumble in the Steelers preseason opener versus the Giants on Saturday night. Bryant did not play a snap with the offensive starters, and only saw the field with the team's third- and fourth-string lineups. The Steelers drafted the 6-foot-5 WR in the fourth round of the 2014 draft.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bryant had a miserable NFL debut, committing errors at just about every opportunity. The fumble was especially costly, as it came on the Steelers' final drive of the game, as they attempted to return from a four-point deficit. Bryant's phsyical tools are perfect - he's big, fast, and can jump. But it looks like this season he'll be developing on the practice field more than in stadiums. Steelers second-year WR Markus Wheaton @twheat002 looks to have the WR2 job locked down, and Bryant will need to work hard just to make the Steelers' final roster. Dynasty league owners should keep an eye on Bryant, but redrafters should not spend a pick on him. At this point, he's far more of a prospect than a producer.
