It would not be wise, though, for Tomlin to gamble his Super Bowl plans on such an underdog.
Who we choose to employ or utilize or activate, we are in the process of Hockey Jerseys discussing, Tomlin said Tuesday. The expectation will be what it is. The people we put on the field will be expected to play and play winning football.
The Steelers have been eliminated from the playoffs the past three seasons without at least one of their elite offensive weapons being available to participate.
— In 2014, running back Le’Veon Bell suffered a hyperextended left knee in the final game of the regular season, a game the Steelers had to win to secure the division championship, on a low hit by Bengals safety Reggie Nelson. The Steelers lost to the Ravens in the playoffs.
— In 2015, Bell was lost on the first Sunday in November when he injured his knee on a hit by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and did not return for the rest of the regular season. The Steelers won a playoff game in Cincinnati, but wide receiver Antonio Brown was left with a concussion after a blow to the head by Burfict and was unavailable for a road playoff game against Denver. The Steelers lost that one when reserve running back Fitz Toussaint fumbled late in the game, fueling a Broncos comeback.
Taurean Prince, Atlanta Hawks (35.2 percent): It’s become a ritual to include Prince in this column. The market simply isn’t appreciating the sum of his statistical slash.

Maybe the market will appreciate Prince now that he posted 30 points in Toronto recently or after his consecutive double-double performances.
Kelly Oubre Jr., Washington Wizards (23.0 percent): Oubre isn’t dependent on Otto Porter Jr. being out to deliver fantasy-relevant results, as he’s averaged 28 minutes with 14 Cheap NFL Jerseys PPG and solid shooting metrics over the past eight outings.
Bogdan Bogdanovic, Sacramento Kings (5.7 percent): Delving deeper at the wing, we find Sacramento’s exciting rookie shooter currently enjoying a hot stretch from beyond the arc (he’s hit half of his 3-point attempts over the past five games). As the Kings reshuffle the rotation, Bogdanovic has remained a consistent perimeter player for Sacramento, as he’s sneakily providing value in steals and shooting efficiency for those in deeper leagues.
