Santonio Holmes, now a member of the Jets, faces a four-game suspension and a major decrease in fantasy appeal.

The Steelers return 20 of 22 starters, which makes them strong contenders to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They still have Dick LeBeau running the defense, and his players call him “The Wizard,” which reflects the schemes and creativity he brings. The offense still has Ben Roethlisberger under center and returns RB Rashard Mendenhall after a season-ending shoulder injury last year.
Despite Limas Sweed‘s slow start to his NFL career, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes the Steelers are expecting much more out of the Texas product in his second season.
NFL Network player correspondent Antwaan Randle El had more interesting observations at halftime of the AFC Championship Game. He believes that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger’s improvisation has been the difference in the game, and he likes how Limas Sweed bounced back after dropping an apparent touchdown pass.
