Ike Taylor participated in individual drills Wednesday for first time since breaking right forearm.

Taylor suffered a nasty forearm injury during Pittsburgh's week 3 game against Carolina. Given the severity of the injury, it is unlikely that Taylor will return to the Steelers for several weeks, but it is certainly a positive development that he is partaking in individual drills.

After a four-game absence because of a sprained MCL, Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier could be set to return to the lineup Sunday vs. Indianapolis.

The rookie linebacker did well in his first three NFL games, recording 20 tackles and seemingly making plays with ease. The Steelers' defense could use his youth and will welcome him back on Sunday against the Colts if he is cleared to play. If he stays healthy, he could be a very solid source of tackles in IDP leagues.

Brett Keisel recorded one tackle and one interception during Pittsburgh's win over Houston on Monday night.

Keisel recorded his second career interception on Monday night and returned it 16 yards. You aren't going to see that happen very often, so enjoy the surprise production if you own him in an IDP league.

Lawrence Timmons recorded 12 tackles and one sack during the Steelers' 30-23 win over the Texans on Monday night.

Timmons had another big game on Monday night against Houston. He is able to find bodies and make plays with ease as evident by his four double-digit tackle games this year. On Monday night, Timmons chipped in with a sack, which was his first of the season. He's a great IDP option going forward.

Shaun Suisham was 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and converted three extra-point attempts against the Texans on Monday night.

Suisham was perfect on both field goal attempts and extra-point attempts on Monday night. He hit field goals from 44, 30, and 40 yards, which is right in line with what you'd expect from Suisham. He isn't much of a deep field goal threat, but he's fairly solid--and consistent--when kicking under 50 yards.

Heath Miller caught one pass on one target for 13 yards during Pittsburgh's 30-23 win over Houston on Monday night.

This marked the second game in a row where Miller was unable to reach at least 20 yards. He is one of Ben Roethlisberger's favorite red zone targets, but he hasn't been any type of target recently. He should have a few big games in him between now and the end of the season, but they're tough to predict. If he is your TE1, you would be advised to make a change.

Lance Moore caught two passes on two targets for 12 yards and a touchdown during Pittsburgh's 30-23 win over Houston on Monday night.

Moore caught his second touchdown pass of the season, but don't let it fool you. He has a very limited role in Pittsburgh's offense and has only caught five passes the entire season. Don't buy into the touchdown catches and be sure to stay away from Moore.

Antonio Brown caught nine passes on 13 targets for 90 yards and also threw for one touchdown pass during Pittsburgh's 30-23 win over Houston on Monday night.

This is just a typical game for Antonio Brown. It seems as though he never has a bad night and Monday was no exception. Here is all you need to know about Brown: his lowest receiving total in any game this year is 84 yards. On top of his stellar consistency each week, he even added in a touchdown throw against Houston on Monday night. The guy truly does it all and is easily one of the most reliable wideouts in the NFL.

Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 12 times for 57 yards and caught eight passes on eight targets for 88 yards and a touchdown during Pittsburgh's 30-23 win over Houston on Monday night.

This is a PPR dream game. Bell was average on the ground, but he more than made up for it with eight receptions and a receiving touchdown. He has been one of the best running backs in the league this year and will look to stay on track next weekend against the Colts.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 23-of-33 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans on Monday night.

Roethlisberger was in his element on Monday night at home against the Texans and was able to lead the Steelers' offense to 24 unanswered points in the second quarter. The veteran quarterback owns a QB rating under 100 in just two games this season and should be counted on as a reliable starter in all fantasy leagues. As long as he has studs like Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown to throw the ball to, he is going to continue to put up solid numbers every week.
