H2H Salary Cap

Fitzgerald Toussaint (R / Pit)

Fitzgerald Toussaint (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday.

Impact

With undisputed starter Le'Veon Bell clearly the top option in the Pittsburgh backfield, Toussaint's availability for Sunday's AFC Championship game is of minor fantasy import, with veteran DeAngelo Williams also in the team's RB mix.

Fitzgerald Toussaint (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Chiefs.

Impact

With Toussaint unavailable, veteran RB DeAngelo Williams is on hand to back up undisputed starter Le'Veon Bell on Sunday.

Fitzgerald Toussaint (concussion) is questionable to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Chiefs.

Impact

Toussaint entered the concussion protocol in the aftermath of last weekend's wild-card game against the Dolphins. He missed Wednesday's practice and didn't fully participate Thursday or Friday, so he doesn't look to be in the clear yet. If Toussaint is ultimately ruled out, only DeAngelo Williams will remain in reserve behind starter Le'Veon Bell.

Fitzgerald Toussaint (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice session.

Impact

Toussaint was held out of practice Wednesday but appears to be recovering and has a chance to play in Sunday's game against Kansas City. His practice status Friday will give a better indication of his availability for the divisional round.

Fitzgerald Toussaint (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice session.

Impact

Toussaint entered the concussion protocol after a wild-card round win over the Dolphins in which he didn't get a single carry. If cleared for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, he likely won't see much of a role beyond special teams.

Fitzgerald Toussaint is dealing with concussion-like symptoms and will be monitored under league protocol, Bob Labriola of the team's official site reports.

Impact

Look for more updates to come throughout the practice week as Toussaint will have to pass testing before he can return to the field. The No. 3 back failed to see any offensive snaps in Sunday's wild-card win over the Dolphins and, if cleared to play, isn't likely to see much action against the Chiefs.

Fitzgerald Toussaint had three carries for 14 yards in Pittsburgh's 27-24 overtime win against Cleveland on Sunday. He also caught both passes thrown to him for 24 yards.

Impact

Toussaint, who will continue to serve as a back-up to Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams heading in to the playoffs, finishes the regular season with 58 yards on 14 carries and three receptions for 33 yards.

Fitzgerald Toussaint ran once for six yards in the Steelers' 27-20 win over the Bills on Sunday.

Impact

With Le'Veon Bell rushing 38 times and totaling 298 yards from scrimmage, the Steelers didn't need to call on Toussaint, or just about anyone else, for that matter for most of the game. There is no reason to have Toussaint in your fantasy lineup, or even on your roster, heading in to Week 15.

Fitzgerald Toussaint totaled 28 yards on six carries against the Colts on Thursday.

Impact

These were Toussaint's first carries since Week 2, with most coming on the final drive of the game, in route to a career-high 28 rushing yards for the third-year running back. With DeAngelo Williams on the mend, Toussaint should soon drop to third on the Steelers' depth chart.

With DeAngelo Williams in line to miss time with a knee injury, Fitzgerald Toussaint will serve as Le'Veon Bell's top backup Sunday against the Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Impact

Toussaint's stint as the Steelers' No. 2 back figures be a multi-week deal with Williams facing a 4-to-6 week recovery, though it's also possible that the team brings in some added backfield depth. In any case, with Bell entrenched as the starter, Toussaint is not a fantasy lineup option, though he now represents a useful insurance policy for Bell owners.
